Pros: Great while it worked.
Cons: 5GHZ band never worked but it did broadcast and was able to connect to router. No internet access.
Router's ethernet ports ALL, yes ALL stopped working today 9/13/14. Bought it 3/30/2014. Updating firmware wouldn't fix it. I flashed all the firmware versions up to the latest and still dead ports. Resetting to factory didn't fix it.
What kills me most is that I threw out original box just a few days before this happened. I'm still under warranty and waiting to hear back from netgear.
Please please please do not buy. I beg you. I saw the bad reviews and still bought it. Don't be fooled by the design and specs. They are all great but DO NOT LAST. If you end up buying one, please keep your receipts and original packaging so you can then return it. I don't think I'll buy from netgear again.
Other Thoughts: Waste of product.
Do not buy.
Specs and design are ALL awesome until they fail. Took me a couple of months of normal use for all the ethernet ports to die out completely.
Buy other models and please look at the reviews.
I'm currently using my old linksys router while I save up for a new router such as bad4ss as this one was SUPPOSE to be.
ASUS here I come.
This review is from: iLive IHB23B 2.1 CH Wireless Bluetooth 2.1 speaker system with subwoofer System
Pros: Nice LED lighting on all speakers
2.1 setup with good audio quality
treble and bass knobs
wired aux feature
Cons: Bluetooth signal keeps getting interrupted but that varies from phone to phone or other audio devices. Thought it did that because it was close to my WiFi Router but I moved it and still the same. Basically sounds like when your tv looses signal and you hear choppy parts of the song. Plays best with your device sitting on the unit itself. Decided to open it and was not surprised. Basically, the silver subwoofer speaker is mostly there for design and is not that actual speaker. There is no magnet, coil, or wiring so it's like a 40% complete speaker that just has the frame and the cone! Behind that fake speaker is another tiny mini speaker where the bass is actually coming from! It's probably 3.5 - 4 inches! What a let down....
Don't know what they call these type of systems but the is the 2nd time I've seen this. If the silver speaker which you see right up front was the one working, you would have so much better and stronger bass but its not connected at all because it cant. The speaker still vibrates and moves because they little one behind it is causing that. It is a sealed system.
Bluetooth signal isnt the best and many times gets choppy from a ridiculously close range so I decided to open up the bluetooth module and take a look at the onboard antenna. It is small. Planing to solder a long wire to it and place it all around the inside of the enclosure hoping to lose the choppiness. It's a signal problem because when I place my device right on top of it, no more choppiness.
Other Thoughts: Great for pc speakers. Bass sounds good and deep for what is really is. I will modify this system for better bluetooth performance and swop out woofer with a better one because that's just me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Full HD 1080P Native resolution, 3D, 2D to 3D instant conversion, bright 3000 lumens, 2 HDMI ports, and whatever the rest of the specs are, all PROS. Affordable and light. Can project around 120-130 inches from a distance of 11FT! Built-in speaker quality is better than expected. Cool feature where you can pick your wall color in the settings and the projector will adjust accordingly! Works great on most bright colored walls! Will definitely bring your family together.
Cons: Does not come with 3D glasses :( and waiting for it to arrive was the hardest part. Did not like how it was shipped in its retail box showing basically what's inside but still got a better deal on it than on NewEgg.
Other Thoughts: Bought mine on eebei d0t c0m for $715 w free shipping. First movies I watched on this projector were Pacific Rim and The Hobbit which were mind blowing on a 120" screen sitting only about 9FT away. Used the ROKU 2 playing 1080p .mkv and .mp4 movies right off the flash drive and works well with this projector through HDMI. Did not use the internal speaker since I have my Logitech Z2300 speakers plugged right into the projector. Yes there are rainbows and that is normal with this projector but not noticeable if you're not looking for it. This is normal with projectors that use color wheels but still an amazing piece of technology that amazes me every single time. Planning to do mostly movies and gaming on it. Love how it is portable and light. Comes with a nice carrying case to bring it over your buddies houses and host movie nights. Say goodbye to real movie theaters because now you can have one in your home and save the bucks for something better!READ FULL REVIEW
