FineDiamonds9 FD9S025RWI 1/4 CT Round Diamond Stud Earrings 14K White Gold
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have to admit, I was skeptical -- the price seemed too good to be true, even for a pair of only .125 Ct earrings. But both I, and my happy wife, are very pleased. The earrings are petite, but appropriately glittery, and seem to be set well. This is a good buy for a real wife pleaser. Folks have complained about the box, but the earrings were delivered in a standard, fuzzy jewellery box. Nothing special, but fine.

Cons: Bigger? Free?

Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11-U Intel Atom D510 NM10 Chipset 1 x 200Pin Next-Gen NVIDIA ION GPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Once I got HDMI audio working (see below) this unit has proven to be a pretty good MythTV frontend. I have it hooked up to a 720p LCD and it seems to handle the load fine. VDPAU on the Nvidia Ion handles the graphics load nicely.

Cons: Could not get HDMI audio to work with Mythbuntu 10.04 or earlier, and had to jump through some hoops that are documented on the web to get everything going with 10.10.

ZOTAC does NOT seem to honor rebates!!!

Other Thoughts: I always buy a unit that includes a rebate with some trepidation, but thought I'd give Zotac a try anyway. I verified t hat I qualified, filled out the rebate material correctly, sent it all in promptly, and... nothing. That's been over 6 months ago. Vendors/manufacturers must realize that while rebates are a great vehicle to increase sales and profit -- most folks don't send them in -- but failure to fulfill rebates only serves to negatively impact their reputation and put a sizable dent in their sales overall. Much as I might be tempted, I, for one, will not buy another product from Zotac until I receive the promised $30 rebate. From what I've ready in other reviews, I'm not alone. At least for Zotac, it's a scam and a rip off.

Rosewill WMC Remote control/Rcvr RRC-127 for Win 7

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Linux remote for Mythtv 11/18/2010

This review is from: Rosewill WMC Remote control/Rcvr RRC-127 for Win 7

Pros: full featured, cheap

Cons: none so far...

Other Thoughts: Bought this as a remote for a Mythtv frontend. After struggling to get it to work, I'd almost given up, then found a google reference and compiled the latest Lircd build and voila! Works like a charm. Using Mythbuntu/Ubuntu 10.10 also works since it includes the latest lircd build. Just be sure to configure the remote as MCE-USB.
