This review is from: Saeco RI9373/47 Aroma Traditional Espresso Machine Black
Pros: With annual maintenance, I have been using the original "saeco classico" stainless since 2004, (I do the maintenance myself). Overheated the pump once, but took apart the pump, and its a simple plastic ball that cleaned/polished with toothpaste and re-assembled works fine since then (5yrs ago).
Its a excellent quality, italian-design, mid-tier, pump-espresso machine. Still made in the EU.
*easy to maintain
*easy to rebuild
*all parts available online
Cons: Pressure Portafilter accumilated coffee deposits, somewhat difficult to clean if not flushed with water after every use.
No Pressure/Temp Gauges. (but could upgrade yourself IF! handy)
No separate boiler for steam.
Pros: Would it work for BD-ROM --> .MKV rips ??
Cons: HDCP... whatever
Other Thoughts: Stick it to the MPAA!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DPH-50U Skype USB Phone Adapter
Pros: Brand name, cheap after rebate
Cons: D-link has made a flop. This driver/support app dont always load, disconnects call, even hang my system on replugging the USB. US Robotics DRIVER for this works out most kinks but is still some bugs. The V-serv program under Task Managers has a memory leak and gets to use 300-400MBs, when PC stays for a long time. Gets yourself a barebones VoIP adapter from e.b.a.y for $20, they work flawless.
Other Thoughts: I am huge fan of D-Link but this one is an edsel.READ FULL REVIEW
