5 out of 5 eggs Good way to delay upgrading your AV Amp 01/07/2015

This review is from: KanexPro HDMI to Component with Audio Converter HDRGBRL

Pros: I have an older Plasma TV and a Denon AV amp that does not support HDMI. So to delay buying a new amp and TV, I thought I'd try the KanexPro converter. I plugged in the cables and the power, the picture came in great, but no audio. I found the PC did not automatically send the audio down the HDMI cable. I powered off/on the KanexProUnder and PC recognized the audio. If not under MS Windows, you can go under the Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback and changed the playback setting for the KanexPro.

Cons: Small nit - the red power light is very bright, you'll want to cover it or face it to the wall.

Other Thoughts: If you're hooking up a PC, I'd recommend changing your settings on your PC to make your TV an Extended display, and set the Resolution to the max. It makes the picture much better in my case with a laptop, who display does not support the higher resolution.

4 out of 5 eggs Replace Realtek card on Toshiba Satellite 12/23/2014

This review is from: Intel Network 7260.HMWWB.R WiFi WIRELESS-AC 7260 H/T 2X2 AC 867 Mbps+ Bluetooth HMC Dual Band Brown Box

Pros: - Relatively easy to install (had to open up entire back of laptop)
- WiFi very fast on N network. Internet speed test 70 Mbps via Asus RT-N66U. Can't wait to try on an AC wireless network.
- Big step up from the included Realtek card.
- I would recommend this card to everyone.

Cons: Bluetooth does not function. There are many updates coming from Intel. I'm not sure Bluetooth worked with Realtek either (never tested). I don't use Bluetooth so no biggy for me.

Other Thoughts: Installed on Toshiba Satellite S855-S5378 running Win 8.1.
