This review is from: SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual HDHR4-2US HD Digital Network Attached TV Tuner Device
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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!READ FULL REVIEW
