SiliconDust HDHR4-2US HDHomeRun Connect 2-Tuner ATSC DLNA/UPnP Compatible Streaming Media Player
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works perfectly with MythTV 0.27; tunes basically any channel, any time as long as you set the tuning delay to 5000ms. Good tuner sensitivity. Handy built-in splitter means two tuners with only one cable connection. Signal strength meter actually works!

Cons: Incredibly small and light, with no wall mounting keyholes. Double-shielded coaxial cable lifts the thing up!

Other Thoughts: Only tried it with MythTV, so I can't comment on how it works with eyeTV or WMC. Uses about 50mbs when recording two high-def shows, so plan your network accordingly.

MOTOROLA TX500 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Perfectly adequate 01/28/2014

This review is from: MOTOROLA TX500 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone

Pros: Voice quality superior to iPhone's built-in speakerphone, huge battery life (goes about a month on a charge), will pair with two phones (iPads, etc.) at a time and let you interact with both. Pairs quickly and reliably.

Cons: Buttons become hard to press when cold. Tricky to trigger voice dialing on the correct device when paired with two phones.

Other Thoughts: Adds the convenience of in-car handsfree for a very reasonable price. Doesn't have some of the bells and whistles of other models, but very good at the things it does.

Microsoft  SIDEWINDER X4  Keyboard - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Is this really the highest-rated keyboard on Newegg? 01/28/2014

This review is from: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros: Key feel is good, key action is quick, backlighting works well and is handy for working in the dark. Media buttons work without additional driver installation on MacOS X and Windows 7.

Cons: OH MY GOODNESS THOSE KEYS ARE SMALL AND CRAMPED! It's genuinely painful for me to type on this keyboard due to the small size of the keys - it's about as tight as the keyboard on my old Dell Mini 10. The wrist rest is just...useless. It provides no support for your wrists at all, and seems to be there just to taunt you.

Other Thoughts: I've been a longtime Microsoft Natural keyboard user; I love my Natural Pro but it's too noisy to use at night while my wife sleeps and the lack of backlighting is a hassle when trying to work in a dark room (my keyboard is on a tray below the desk surface, where light from the monitor can't reach it). This keyboard looked like it would solve those problems, and it does. Unfortunately, I can't type on it due to the children-sized keys! Make a version of this keyboard with adult-sized keys, please!
