This review is from: FAVI Entertainment SS-8GB SmartStick with Android Apps (Built-in WiFi)
Pros: I can web surf, watch Crackle movies. I haven't tried much else.
Cons: Hulu plus says device not supported. WiFI cuts out suddenly without warning. Location matters not. I set it up four feet from the router. I'm thinking I will try using my media file server instead. I don't think this device is ready for it's stated purpose, however, I will hang on to it and hope for a firmware upgrade that will make it useful.
Other Thoughts: Better to get a Mini Itx home-build and use it with Windows 7 or 8. It would have more speed and wouldn't have a bad Wi Fi set-up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655/RE) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: It worked well while it worked. Gb ethernet was okay, neighbors loved the range. I liked the features and interface, once I got used to it.
Cons: I bought this from another source but the manufacturer and model number were the same. I paid more for it than this price. I had it for two months, and it quit doing any responding. I rebooted, tried multiple ways of getting into the controls - nothing. When I frustrated the experience I had with routers and all internet forums and resources trying to get it to do something, anything, I gave it to my adult daughter to play with. She wasted many hours after which she gave it the recycle burial it deserved.
Other Thoughts: I don't know who does the refurbs for D-Link but I don't respect them. I wouldn't purchase another refurb product with the D-Link name anywhere.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acer G235HAbd 23'' 5ms 1920x1080 WideScreen LCD monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1
Pros: A big step up from my 17" 4:3 LCD monitor (or for that matter, from the 21" 60 lb. CRT I acquired used and cheap). No stuck/dead pixels. Received very quickly -thanks, New Egg! I got exactly what I ordered and more than I hoped for. Hopefully I will get as much use out of it as I did the old LCD one.
Cons: It makes me want to build a new system to go with and show off the new monitor.
Other Thoughts: with the reviews this one got, the price I paid, the speed with which I got it, I can't help wondering why it took me so long to get this. I recommend it to anyone who needs a monitor. If you have money to burn, get one that has HDMI. Otherwise, this offers the best bang for the buck available when I got it. It's no wonder New Egg is the favorite online destination.READ FULL REVIEW
