This review is from: Ooma Telo VoIP Internet Voice Home Phone Service Box-Factory Recertified
Pros: Works like a land line with 911 support, great clarity etc.
Cons: A regular land line usually works in a power outage with a corded set.
Other Thoughts: I've had mine for something more than a year and a half. I guess it's a good sign that I can't remember exactly. I set it up and forgot about it. I'm using a Panasonic cordless system with three handsets.
You can add a Google Voice number, great for a "throwaway" number or for using on wifi devices for free calling.
I'm using the basic tax-only service. Check out Ooma's site for the skinny on the sevice options. Also, they have an active and helpful user forum.
Pros: I bought this combo locally (using it right now) on Black Friday 2011. Still working great. I changed keyboard batteries once and for the mouse twice. Range, ergonomics, and battery life have been superb. The looks are great too!!
Cons: I had some slight issues where I had problems like some have described with lagging keyboard response. All I had to do was to switch to another USB port, and the issue cleared up. Probably an issue with my MOBO, a Gigabyte Z77 model with USB ports controlled by vaious vendors.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual HDHR3-US HD Digital Network Attached TV Tuner Device
Pros: Does what it's supposed to.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I've been using the HDHomeRun for a year with Ubuntu 12.04 with no problem until recently. I bought the device to watch clear QAM cable channels with my cable internet service. They recently became encrypted. It seems that cable companies have been successful in lobbying to end clear QAM as we have known it. The still are required to offer local content free of charge, but you need to use one of their boxes. For myself, I'm building a fractal antenna. OTA has better quality, anyway. So, great product, with the caveat that you may not be able to use it with your cable service, even for local content, and even if you can, that may change.READ FULL REVIEW
