This review is from: Brother MFC-J450DW Wireless Color Multifunction Inkjet Printer
Pros: Easy setup, works with IOS, Android and Windows XP up to Windows 8.1 (32 and 64 bit). Cheap aftermarket ink available from many sources. Wi-Fi at 3 bars. Duplex printing is a big plus. Print quality is better than expected from such a low cost printer.
Cons: Doesn't have NFC, which Brother IPrint&Scan app defaults to. Easy to switch to Wi-Fi print however. Starter ink isn't great. Brother Ink is VERY costly, but many aftermarket options. The 103 XL ink is the way to go.
Other Thoughts: Set up as "Fast Print" by default to conserve ink, Black ink is 50% larger than colour. Ink loads from front of machine, which makes this easy to install when in a kitchen cabinet. Wi-Fi set up fast, found the network quickly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RCA ANT1450BR Indoor Digital Flat Amplified Antenna
Pros: This antenna was able to pull in signals from a lower level inside structure location fairly well. It doesn't take up much space, and can be placed anywhere close to the TV, without being visible.
Cons: Positioning the antenna is still necessary to optimize the signal depending on station.
Other Thoughts: Our local PBS provides 3 channels in Detroit, 56-1, 56-2, 56-3. This is BETTER than what I get on Cable with Comcast or UVerse. In addition, I now get NBC, plus and extra channel, and ABC plus 2 extra channels. All this without Cable. I'm thinking of ditching Cable all together and getting a strong external HD Antenna for my entire home TV Network. If I add a HDTVHomeRun unit, I can then use my PC as a DVR. I'll save $100 per month this way, and not miss much.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Toshiba BDX3300/BDK33 1080p Blu-Ray Disc Player with Wi-Fi
Pros: Works well with all media types, able to play movies off of thumb drive, blue ray, dvd-r, mp3, etc. easy to reed via menu interface on TV screen. WiFi not limited to just one provider. Startup time is pretty good.
Cons: No media type display or timer on the unit, which comparable Sony has.
Other Thoughts: This is a very nice unit, which can add streaming via WiFi to any TV in your home. It is easy to set up with your wireless network. Once the unit lost its way, wouldn't respond, but a power cycle fixed the issue in a snap.READ FULL REVIEW
