This review is from: Logitech Harmony 720 Universal Infrared Remote Control
Pros: I was skeptical about such devices but I thought I'd give it a try.
The only frustrating thing was waiting for the battery to fully charge before setting it up. After all we are all boys and we want our toys now! :) I occupied myself with something else and when the battery was full I installed the software on my PC and started setting up the Remote Control.
The setup was literally a 10 minute task. My devices were in the database (you have to write them down before you set the Remote Control - saves you trips from the computer to the devices themselves) and setting them up was a breeze. The wizard makes things very easy.
Once the Remote was set up on the PC I went to try it on my devices. It appeared that it was out of sync i.e. it thought that the devices (TV, FIOS box etc.) were switched off, but with its onboard wizard this was easily rectified.
Again in total the setup took 10 minutes.
Extremely satisfied with this purchase!
Other Thoughts: There is a slight delay (hardly noticeable) when you click the volume button until your TV responds. This might be my TV but I am just mentioning it here. After a few minutes operating the remote it you don't even notice it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hanns-G HX-191DPB Black 19" 5ms LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers
Pros: Very solid monitor. The display is crystal clear even with the original protective film that came with the monitor :) The response rates are extremely fast thus making it a good choice for home/gaming/work.
Cons: The quality of the speakers is really poor. If you intend on listening from the speakers on the monitor you will be disappointed. If not then it does not affect you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LEXMARK E250d 33S0100 Personal Up to 30 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
Pros: I needed a laser printer with a duplex unit (gotta make sure no sheet goes to waste :)). The Lexmark E250d was not the cheapest one but the brand name, other reviews and its features were the selling points for me.
The printer is very easy to setup, stylish and it prints really fast. The duplexing unit is one of its strongest points as well as the relatively large tray, the front loader for envelopes or single sheets plus it is a laser one. That alone saves 30-40 dollars per cartridge on an inkjet, thus making the return on investment very high.
Extremely satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it.
Other Thoughts: I wish I had bought it on black Friday :) That would have saved me a few extra $$ :)READ FULL REVIEW
