This review is from: Minix NEO-M1 2.4GHz Wireless GyroMouse For MINIX NEO Series
Pros: FAST, must faster then my hope to replace WDTV Live. A lot more features then the WDTV could ever provide, and much more customizable too. Natural this is do to the Android OS vs whatever is built in with the WD. So party like its 1999, this device should last well into the future for many peoples needs (Media player, web, social, gaming).
Also, with the AirPin Pro app built in, you "can" show your iOS device on the screen and Andriod too. So saves you form needing an Apple TV and something else. It doesn't work perfectly, but the fact I could do it at all is a PRO.
Cons: Remote control (default IR). Sucks. No other way to say it. There is virtually nothing good about it. The fact that it does anything is remarkable, because its that bad. If you get the free RF remote, you will pretty much needed its all the time.
You can't use a universal remote with this like a logitech. Since the original remote sucks so bad (last play, FF, RW, Stop, Pause buttons), you can't even IR to IR to another remote to learn the codes. MAJOR deal breaker. My WD device works perfectly (however its SLOW, which is why I got this unit to replace it). The WD remote does everthing the device can do, and what can be controlled. Amazing that the MINIX can't, literally can't do these functions. How was this overlooked? If you want more functionality, you need to use the XBMC app (iOS or Android) to get more of the remote control features you should have already had with the basic remote.
Also, at least for my videos. I get an "extra" letter box bar at the top and bottom. Just so I am clear, these are 'EXTRA' not the normal letter box bars in many movies. Which are also not centered properly. I have to manually fix this for each movie, every time. Again, this isn't something you fix once to properly adjust XBMC (app) to your screen. It's almost the same process, but for EACH movie I have, every time. I have to basically ZOOM the picture while watching it, then bring it back to original or normal to have the 'extra' black bars go away.
This system locks up (too frequently for me). Not completely shut down and reboot. More like a hang for about 10 or so seconds. Hasn't done this while watching anything. Mainly while going thru the menus and settings.
Lastly the 2.5TB external drive support is ridiculous. MINIX needs to update to fix this immediately.
Other Thoughts: I want to love this thing so bad. My negatives are just out right deal breakers. It is a good unit for what it should be able to do. I can't for the life of me figure how an old WDTV Live does a better job of managing and playing media (not 4K) better, and easier then this brand new piece of hardware. How it can lack such basic remote control support, super basic! It RIPS thru your video files no problem. I love how fast this thing is and when right, IS what I want my media player to be. I just can't use it properly yet. Lets not even get on the NETFLIX suck at 480p no matter what issue. That is widely known yes, but still, hack that or something to make it work at 1080p.
I'm ranting on this. Again, if you have many other uses for this device, it may very well work good for you.
Pros: Small, fits well. Light weight enough for me. Different size ear plug cushions fit my ear fine.
Cons: Not loud enough. I know I may not be the norm on this. But, I got these to replace my use of the iPhone 5 supplied ear buds. Those things sound WAY better then these. MUCH better base response, and louder volume when you want it. These are not very loud at all. They are "ok" loud, but not loud enough for my tastes.
Other Thoughts: They will do the job. These are for going to the gym and not having to worry about accessing my phone to change tracks, and of course to cut the cord. However, they are lacking in the base response department, and they are not loud enough for me to get excited about. I was expecting the base to be a little less then the Apple supplied speakers. They are really good for there size. Just not for practical gym use or being very active.
It would be nice if there was some kind of firmware update that would take the governor off these headphones. I feel like they could be better.
This review is from: Men's Invicta II Chronograph Black Dial Two Tone
Pros: Looks as described in the pictures. Not as large as I thought, but exactly the size I wanted. Price is great!
Cons: Nothing so far. Came fast (even with 5-7 days free shipping), took about 4 days total from order. Time was off by an hour, but other then that. So far so good!
Other Thoughts: Hoping this is a great buy. Purchased for wedding gifts, and bought myself one as well. Bought it sight unseen. As I only had the pictures to go on. Looks just like the photos! I'm a fan of watches, and have purchased an Invicta before. Like I said, its only a week or so of owning it. But, I have no complaints. Shipping was fast, price was great, and the watch looks like it should.READ FULL REVIEW
