Motorola Atrix 4G Black Unlocked GSM Smart Phone w/ Android OS / 5MP Camera / Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Motorola will not update to 4.0 12/20/2012

This review is from: Motorola Atrix 4G Black Unlocked GSM Smart Phone w/ Android OS / 5MP Camera / Wi-Fi Hotspot

Pros: Smaller phone (which I like). Is not lightning fast but it is usable. No problem installing and using apps. Battery setting is maximum power savings I get through the day without a problem.

Cons: Motorola said that it would be upgraded to 4.0 and then changed there mind. This is the second Motorola phone I own that they did this. When introduced it was the flagship AT&T phone but has been sent to the wayside by Motorola. Stuck on 2.3.

This is NOT a 4G phone. It runs on their 3G system. I mainly surf

Other Thoughts: Burned twice by Motorola. Time to move on to a different brand.

4 out of 5 eggs Better than most remotes 12/20/2012

This review is from: Logitech Harmony 300i Infrared Universal Remote - 3rd party

Pros: I am using the remote to control a Sony TV, Comcast (Motorola) cable box and a Hauppauge HVR 1600 card in a desktop computer.

Sony TV works great.

Cons: Comcast box is more confusing cannot get directly to DVR function, need to go into menu first to select DVR functionality. I have only used the remote for playback, I have not tried to program a recording.

The Hauppauge was more difficult. I need to reprogram the most important function which was the volume control. You need the old remote to do this. I purchased the remote specifically for the Hauppage functionality.

The software is online (you need to remember your user name and password) I would have much rather had software that ran on the computer. Connecting to their website is hit or miss. One time it took a half hour of trying. It is also programmed in Microsoft Silverlight (never seen anything on the web or otherwise using this). It is not reliable. Once into the software it is confusing but I was able to eventually figure out the how to assign buttons and add the volume functions.

Other Thoughts: Overall this remote is better than most if you have time to fiddle with it.

BUFFALO LS-V2.0TL 2TB LinkStation Pro LS-VL Network Storage
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Would not buy another 10/17/2012

This review is from: BUFFALO LS-V2.0TL 2TB LinkStation Pro LS-VL Network Storage

Pros: The concept is great. Firmware not easy to use but not that difficult to figure out. When it works, it is great way to back up files or store files you don't need very often. Setting up password protection is not straightforward and only one computer can access password protected data at one time.

Cons: The unit failed after 2 years. The firmware crashed and could not be recovered (even after following some complicated instructions from their web site). I was copying files to the unit when it just stopped. Error code indicated it was the firmware. I also had a Linkstation Duo fail after about 9 months. Only a one year warranty. I will try to remove drive (no easy way to do so) and see what I can recover.

Other Thoughts: I would not purchase again.
