ASUS RT-N65U Dual-Band Wireless-N750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab manufactured recertified
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I bought my n65u as a refurb for $85. For that price, I'm really digging it. If I wanted to spend more, the n66u would have been a better option. However, the 65u rocks as a middle of the road option.

Why do I like this puppy even when others haven't given it much love?

Great signal coverage and range. My 65u resides in my basement, but I still get great reception on my second floor. Full strength and speed.

It's fast. Wireless is no longer my network bottleneck.

Several guest networks can be set up from the same device. Initial checks seems to confirm that the guest nets are indeed isolated from my intranet.

Good interface and config options. The 65u comes with some pretty useful parental content filtering options.

Cons: I took away one egg for some initial config problems. I had to factory reset my router before being able to get through the initial config.

Samsung HT-BD8200 2.1-Channel Blu-ray Sound Bar Home Theater System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks good. Nice combination of features. Subwoofer put out some good bass.

Cons: Poor quality product. The blue-ray player wouldn't play DVD formats that its specifications claim to support. Terrible interference between ipod and sound system when playing music from ipod. I suspect insufficient shielding somewhere either internally, in the wires, or at the connectors. Sound system high's were not crisp and midrange was muddy.

Other Thoughts: Look somewhere else if you want a sound system. The concept for the BD8200 was good but the execution was terrible.

Samsung HT-BD8200 2.1-Channel Blu-ray Sound Bar Home Theater System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks good. Wireless internet dongle and associated applications are nice touches. Integrated pretty well with my Samsung LCD TV, but not as well as it should have ... a bit quirky.

Cons: Bottom line, system is not worth the money. My BD8200 arrived with a defective blue-ray player. It would not play ANY of the DVD formats that its user manual claims it supports. Sound quality is ok, but I'd expect better for the money. The highs were not crisp and midrange was muddy. Several quality control issues were apparent. Defective blue-ray player was one. However, other really annoying ones included poor wire/connector shielding and an inability to save wireless network settings. I noticed very audible interference when playing music from the Ipod via the provided dock: click, click, whirl, click, whirl. After disconnecting and then reconnecting the wireless network adapter, I found that my network settings had not been saved. This was very lame.

Other Thoughts: What is Samsung thinking, selling this low quality, overpriced system. It has completely tarnished Samsung's brand image in my mind.

My BD8200 is going back to Newegg. In the end, the defective blue-ray player means that I cannot keep it even if I could overlook all the other issues.
