BYTECC HM107 CVBS/ S-Video + R/L to HDMI® Converter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Not bad, but you get what you pay for here 12/20/2014

This review is from: BYTECC HM107 CVBS/ S-Video + R/L to HDMI® Converter

Pros: - Solid construction, feels of quality
- Both composite and s-video inputs
- Convenient on/off switch on the front and video switch on the back
- Good for retro gaming

Cons: - Only upscales to 720P, not 1080P
- Composite upscaling is not very good and causing bad color banding on HDTV's
- Should have 1080P upscaling at this price point vs competitors
- Color and contrast loss on cable signal conversion

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I expected more out of this converter. It does a decent job of sharpening up your old s-video connection for use on an HDTV and has proven good for retro video games in that capacity. If you're looking to upscale your cable TV connection, you may way to look elsewhere though. Even with the s-video conversion, the quality is questionable and there appears to be color and contrast loss! You can make up for these with your TV's settings, but you'd be better off with a higher quality unit that supports 1080P and has better color reproduction.

Considering what I mentioned above, I've found the composite input upscaling to be virtually unusable for anything and highly recommend using only the s-video on this. This makes the box only usable for one thing, unless you're ok with color loss and poor composite conversion!

My primary reason for this purchase was to play retro games (SNES, Dreamcast, PS2) on my new HDTV. For this purpose it does just fine, but don't expect it to be a one in all upscaling solution. You can probably find better for your money when considering an upscaler.

NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

3 out of 5 eggs Reliable with an easy setup - but poor Wi-Fi signal range 11/26/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR WNR3500L-100NAS 802.11b/g/n RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit router up to 300Mbps/ DD-WRT Open Source support/ USB x1

Pros: - Easy setup
- Preset wireless security
- Nice design
- Gigabit wired speed
- Low price

Cons: - Poor Wi-Fi range
- Weak internal antennae

Other Thoughts: This router is cheap and will provide you with good wired speed, but if you're looking for a great Wi-Fi connection, you may want to look elsewhere unless you live in a studio apartment. I have a pretty small place, and in the next room, I will often be reduced to 1 bar of wi-fi. It does not support dual-band either.

The internal antennae is fairly weak, so if you're looking for a decent signal strength, you may not get it.

Ducky DK9008G2 Pro keyboard w/PBT Dye-Sublimated Caps (Brown Cherry MX)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs A very solidly built keyboard that is expensive, but worth it 11/14/2013

This review is from: Ducky DK9008G2 Pro keyboard w/PBT Dye-Sublimated Caps (Brown Cherry MX)

Pros: - High quality construction
- Very durable and solid feeling PBT dye-sub keys
- Cherry MX Brown switches are excellent and well rounded
- Nice addition of red WASD backlit keys - hot swappable
- NKRO or at least 6KRO
- Very handy quick keys on the top right

Cons: - PBT keys took a little getting used to coming off of cheap ABS plastic

Other Thoughts: To start, I really disliked this keyboard at first. Immediately I noticed the solid construction and quality make but I disliked typing on it. It didn't take long for me to get used to the feel though and now I love it. PBT dye-sub keys (for those who haven't tried them), feel more solid and a bit more "stiff" than ABS keys, but they will last you a world longer without that annoying key shine that most keyboards get! I game on it with the red WASD keys and really enjoy typing on it with the Cherry Browns. Never before have i owned a keyboard of this quality make, and I can tell you, after coming from a Razer Blackwidow, this mechanical keyboard puts that one to absolute shame! If you want to make a good investment in a keyboard, give the Ducky PBT a try and allow yourself the chance to get used to them like I did. Highly recommended for either gaming or typing.
