This review is from: brother HL-4150CDN Color Laser Printer with Duplex and Networking
Pros: Duplex printing is really nice. Print quality good. Holds a lot of paper.
Cons: Envelope handling is a nightmare. Only holds 3 (THREE!) envelopes at a time. Plus, they curl a good bit. Back of printer has to be opened to manually adjust some knobs before printing envelopes. In a small office space, this is a major pain. These deficiencies render the printer almost useless for printing envelopes. As I do mailings, this a HUGE disappointment.
On/Off switch - why the heck is it almost on the bottom near the back?! Impossible to reach there. Why can't it be with the rest of the controls? Really dumb.
Slow to print first page (about 20 secs). If you're printing one-offs, forget it.
Also, know that "wireless" pertains only to phone/printer interface, not your PC or network - that's wired, USB or Ethernet.
Other Thoughts: Machine is quite heavy.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: This is hands down the worst electronic device I've ever purchased. Very bad support (hours on phone with no result). Very difficult to set up. Product simply does not work as advertised.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: YAMAHA 5.1-Channel Digital Home Theater Receiver RX-V367
Pros: good looks, good price, good sound. Nice audio presets. Handles just about every input possible, except...
Cons: This receiver is billed as playing my iPod ("Want your iPod to play greater audio? Solve all your problems with the Yamaha’s RX-V367" - right of the Newegg page).
But I can't play my iPod through the AUX jack on the front, which is shown as specifically for a "portable audio player" that looks a whole lot like an iPod. I plug mine in and NADA. What am I missing here, folks? Is an iPod not a "portable audio player"?
For an additional $70 (30% of the receiver price!), you can get a special iPod dock that allows charging and remote control. Like all iPod accessories, this is WAY, WAY overpriced! I'm happy to set my on shuffle and walk away and let it play for 24 hours on its battery.
Other Thoughts: Why are almost all receivers made with button labels that are virtually impossible to read without very high ambient light and, perhaps, a magnifying glass? Granted, most of the controls are accomplished with the remote and the resulting configuration shown on the perfectly clear LED front panel display, but the buttons are very difficult to read.READ FULL REVIEW
