This review is from: Roku 2720X-B Streaming Player Black
Pros: Nice unit when it works. Nice remote w/ earphone option
Cons: HDMI output failed after 4 months of use. RCA output still works but....what's the point of HD if you have to use an analog input?
Other Thoughts: My old Roku 2XS is going on 3 years and still works fine. Disappointed but after 30 days I'm just out of luck.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: DOES NOT PLAY REGION 1. If you call the Sylvania they have you call Curtis International (who made this) they will tell you to ship it at your expense to Indiana with a check for $7 to repair or replace it.
Other Thoughts: Worst Newegg purchase I've ever had. Not only does the manufacturer talk down to you one the phone and insist it is a region 1 machine (despite me having two that will pay DVDs I've made on my pc but both refuse to play purchased DVDs giving me "wrong region" errors). He says the lens is dirty. I say "I have two and they play homemade DVDs just fine", he says. "It will only play region 1 DVDs". I remind him "I'm in MINNESOTA central USA all my DVDs are region 1", he says "the lens must be dirty". I say "NO! it plays other region free DVDs FINE" .... "OK if you want you can ship it to Indiana at your own expense include a check for $7 and we will service the machine." I may run these over tomorrow and then ship them back without $7 and without a return address.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OLYMPUS Stylus SZ-14 Red 14 MP 24X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
Pros: GREAT optical zoom and almost fish eye super wide angle. More features than I care to list but all impressive. Especially the auto panoramic image making and dual stabilization. Plus it will take 6 pics a second in hi speed mode at 5mpx. IT ROCKS. I use it for bird pictures, school programs, and my son's football games and yesterday got a shot of comet ISON in broad daylight. IT IS A POWERHOUSE in a small package at a hard to believe price. I'm still pinching myself after over 6 months. I LOVE IT. Hot rod for Geo Metro price. BRIGHT screen too. Also super helpful "?" button that explains all the features.
Cons: It does become "busy" if you take about 60 consecutive high speed pics while it puts the images into the SD card. So shoot 2 to 5 second bursts and you have no worries. The flash must be released with a click or it defaults to slow shutter speed BUT not a problem with dual stabilization.
Other Thoughts: It ROCKS!!READ FULL REVIEW
