IOGEAR GHDMIS3 3-Port HD Audio/Video Switch with Remote
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Works, sort of 12/30/2014

This review is from: IOGEAR GHDMIS3 3-Port HD Audio/Video Switch with Remote

Pros: Does what it says it does

Cons: If I power off any device plugged into it, such as my DVR or DVD player, the screen turns mostly green with a purple shadow of the program playing. Unplugging that powered off source solves the problem, but defeats the purpose of the box.

Other Thoughts: Might be defective, this is second IOGear device I've bought and both had issues out the box. I'll spend a little more next time.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 3 Kids Dual Core 1.5GB Memory 8GB ROM 7.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great Value
Includes Bumper
Lots of free stuff for the kids pre-loaded
Perfect screen size for the kids, not too big to hold, large enough to see.
Includes all the bells and whistles needed that get skipped on cheaper tablets, like SD slots, front and rear camera, accelerometer, etc.

Cons: No choice of colors on the refurbs

Other Thoughts: Bought 3 for xmas for two four year olds and an 8 year old. Don't have to share our phones with them anymore, or worry about them damaging our tablets. They appear durable and the kids figured them out fast. Neither of the four year olds even bother with the kid mode, but they'd already had experience on another Samsung tablet and didn't need it. As a refurb I got them for not much more than half price, which can't be beat. Didn't want to spend more on the kids and have to worry about them too much. They had the Innotabs, which are more trouble than they are worth and are VERY unreliable. Returned four of those already. Much better than the Kindles two were using.

GMYLE Windows 7 Vista XP Media Center MCE PC Remote Control and Infrared Receiver for Home, Premium and Ultimate Edition
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: works as advertised

Cons: While it's handy in bed, it's not a keyboard and mouse. But didn't think it would be.

Other Thoughts: To use your harmony remote with this IR receiver:

In the logitech software, Add Device. Select Computer>Media Center. Find ORTek: VRC-1100
Works fine (model number on back of this unit is vrc-1100, its just rebranded

Had it for a year now, sold under different brand name, no problems
