D-Link Wireless AC750 Dual Band Cloud Router (DIR-810L)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works good for a basic router 03/02/2015

This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC750 Dual Band Cloud Router (DIR-810L)

Pros: -Second one work flawlessly.
-2.4 range good.
-Easy install, in my case did not even need to run wizard.
Basic settings in router are easy to find and set.
-It has the ability to back up your settings.

Cons: First one was bad, needed to be returned.
No usable activity lights for troubleshooting.
I know 5mhz has less range but I would expect better performance 25 feet away.

Other Thoughts: My netgear router went out after about 3 years and I needed something quickly. I went to a local club and purchased the router. Spent an hour on the phone with AT&T changing DSL and router settings an could not get it to work. I help friends with their routers and rarely have a problem. I returned it the next day and go another. This one worked like a charm. I unplugged the modem per the Dlink instructions, put everything in place and plugged everything back in according to the order in the Dlink instructions. Turned on the computer and the internet worked. I didn't even need to go through the setup wizard.

I changed the settings on the router to match the old router so that my wireless printers would work. I had to use the WPS code to install them again and then everything worked as expected. I don't think the 2.4 range is any better or worse than my old router. I did note very limited range on the 5mhz frequency. I gave up using it and stick to 2.4mhz.

The router has all of the basic you settings your would expect. It also comes with a card that gives you the wireless settings that are preconfigured if you choose to use them.

It does not have lights indicating activity for the wired and wireless connections separately. I miss this for trouble shooting.

If you are looking for a basic router for home use on the cheap this fits the bill. I would however buy it locally in case you get a bad one (sorry Newegg).

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.

Logitech Harmony 300i Infrared Universal Remote - 3rd party

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

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.
