Pros: Small, Fast, Inexpensive, HDMI out. Perfect for building an everyday- driver machine. Had to call tech support...A+..real techs with solid knowledge..solved my issue quickly.
Cons: HDMI out was/is flaky. WinXP install was a nightmare; but eventually sorted it out; see "other thoughts".
Other Thoughts: -1111-. WinXP must be SP3 at installation; you cannot add SP3 later. If you install a non SP3 version of XP, it will fail...Why?...because support for SATA drives was added in SP3, without SP3, the OS won't recognized the SATA drive and the install stops with a failure code. If your XP is not SP3, do some research on slipstreaming the disk...google it.
-2222- I almost never use an "included disk", but for this board, long story short, you must run the disk.
-3333- HDMI out is flaky, I had to connect/disconnect the cable several times to get a display...tried different cables, all the same result...no HDMI out?, unplug and reinsert cable until it, hopefully, works...could just be my board though...working fine now...but initially I thought I'd have to RMA..
-4444- It's been up and running for 6 months now...Very satisfied.
Pros: Very well built/designed basic phone.
>Speaker/ear phone is loud if you need it loud!
>Call quality with Walmart Family Mobile (T-mobile) is excellent.
>Battery life is A+; 4 days of heavy use before it needs a recharge. I have two, the second is used less often and will go 8+ days without a recharge.
>Camera is OK; definitely not high def, but good enough for a quick pic when a real camera isn't handy. Works great for desktop pics and emailing them as the file size is very small (75Kb).
>Lots of customization options; including a shortcut bar that you load with your favorites.
>Battery charging is quick; dead to full in about an hour and half.
>Texting is easy once you get a feel for the layout.
>Nokia customer service is EXCELLENT! You call, they give answers. Walked me through setting that the manual poorly covered.
Cons: >owners manual is terrible; no real help with advanced features..you basically have to try and try again to set it up the way you want it.
>Depending on how you hold the phone, you may hear your own voice when speaking; sort of like you're talking in a can...but the recipient says it sounds great.
Other Thoughts: Great phone that handles calls/text extremely well but leaves a lot to be desired as far as web browsing...but hey...it's an $80 phone...
Bluetooth works very well. If you want to ditch your landline, but would love to still use the landline phones in your house, buy a Phonelynx to go with this phone...You'll be in heaven!
