Pros: Arrived fast. Initially looks smaller than expected until you realize you are actually seeing more monitor and less bezel. Screen is bright, images are crisp. Two HDMI ports. HDMI sound from my computer works (something that was not possible with my other monitors). Surprisingly light.
Cons: I’m one of those who cannot get the monitor to wake from sleep. This is the first time I have ever had this problem with a monitor and I have purchased TONS of monitors in my day. No, nothing is wrong with the cable. It’s the monitor. Second, the inputs rest about an inch and a half to two inches deep into the bottom back of the monitor. Why??? As if getting HDMI cables and vga cables in were not hard enough. I use my monitor on a mount so I can’t speak to the wobbly stand, but why can’t the stand’s arm be removed. Another strange oversight by Acer.
Other Thoughts: The package arrived with the seal broken. I don’t know who, when or why. Perhaps at Newegg it was a quality control thing. But the box was clearly opened and items taken out and checked (the plastic protector screen for the monitor itself was missing). Its disappointing, but all items appeared to be there and everything appears to be working fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great picture when it works.
Cons: Terrible unit that freezes every time I use it. It is the most frustrating thing. I will be using it for 1/2 hour and go to shut it off and the remote will not work. Come to find out, it cannot be turned off on the control panel either. Finally the unit will go dark for no reason and fail to turn on. Bad news.
Other Thoughts: Avoid at all costs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Obihai OBi200 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP
Pros: I don't know how Ooma and the others will stay in business with this thing on the market. With new "official" support from Google Voice, you can use this adapter to make free calls nationwide and Canada. If you don't like GV, use some of the many other offerings with low per minute charges. And it will take a fax (with GV). This thing is out of sight.
Cons: Setup and configuration with some providers can get confusing. Took me the better part of a day. GV no longer supports voicemail message indicator with Obi.
Other Thoughts: The annoying delay and somewhat sketchy sound quality I was getting from my 5 year old Ooma hub was getting on my nerves. Now, with Obi, I get crystal clear calling like my mother gets with her Cablevision provided phone service. And the array of choices, from call block, call forward, three way calling, call return and many more, has me stunned. With Ooma you would have to pay 100 bucks a year. With this its all free using Google Voice. Simply amazing.READ FULL REVIEW
