SONY VAIO Duo Core i5 4GB 128GB SSD 13.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent as a tablet, and the large-ish screen and physical keyboard let me get real work done when necessary. Built-in apps work nicely, and the machine is snappy.

Cons: Two cons:
1) Front-facing webcam was non-functional on arrival. Sony fixed it free, but we did have to do without for a month or so.
2) Screen position is fixed at about a 60 degree angle in laptop mode. This is well suited to a table or desk but makes viewing the screen difficult when reclined (bed or couch)

StarTech SV215MICUSBA 2 Port USB VGA KVM Switch with Audio
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Simple and Effective 02/04/2012

This review is from: StarTech SV215MICUSBA 2 Port USB VGA KVM Switch with Audio

Pros: Dead simple to set up and use, and works like a charm

Cons: The cables on the computer side of the KVM are short. They work well if the various ports are close (i.e. a tower) but are too short if the ports are spread out (i.e. a laptop). If you want to use this as a laptop dock, make sure your K, V, and M ports are all near one another.

SONY STR-DH700 7.1-Channel Home Theater A/V Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs If Not For One Major Flaw 01/14/2010

This review is from: SONY STR-DH700 7.1-Channel Home Theater A/V Receiver

Pros: Plenty of connectors for up to (I believe) seven different devices.

Cons: There is *NO* conversion between standards (HDMI, component, and RCA). For example, if you use an RCA input, you *must* use the RCA output to view that video feed on your TV; the HDMI and component video outs will be blank. For me, that means having all three cables running from the receiver to my TV and constantly switching inputs. Thankfully my universal remote supports macros!

Other Thoughts: This is a great box for a brand-new home theater, when all devices share one standard. But if you prefer incremental upgrades like I do, mixing and matching is a total pain! And, of course, if all devices share one standard, you may find yourself short on ports (as others have complained of).
