This review is from: Vizio 32" 2.1 Soundbar With Subwoofer - VSB211
Pros: I am giving this 5 stars because for this price, it's an outstanding value.
I just ordered my second one from NewEgg. The second one will be for my bedroom TV.
The 1st one was installed in my motorhome bedroom, to supplement the tinny built-in speaker in my 32" Sony. To say this was an upgrade would like calling a transporter beam a convenience. Mine did work 1st time but it was a little confusing getting it all going because the instructions are minimal and the battery in the remote was dead. But once it was working, I was very please with the sound quality, the ability to make several adjustments to bass levels and turn on and off the SRS system.
I don't know how you could ever get anything this good at this price. If you are worried about it breaking, get the replacement warranty.
It's light, but solid. I attached the sound bar with Velcro to the bottom of the feet and it holds firm. The subwoofer in on hefty rubber sub-nose feet.
The sound volume is loud enough for just about any situation. The small remote is actually quite useful and because it's IR, if you have a universal remote you can pick up the codes.
Cons: As I mentioned before, the instructions are poor. The battery arrived dead.
Once, I heard a clicking sound in the sub-woofer but I turned it off and on and then it stopped. All was fine afterwards.
Other Thoughts: This is not supposed to be compared to a $500=$1000 product. In fact, it can be compared to $250 -$300 products with ease. From a sound perspective it's pretty well balanced. If you like a lot of bass, you can achieve that with placement and by pumping up the bass control.
On StarTrek BlueRay we could hear the movement across the room as ships zoomed through space. On some chickflick movies, the vocals were clear with just a little muddiness. In complex scenes with dynamic background music and speech, the speech was a bit more buried than I would like.
This review is from: NETGEAR WGPS606 54 Mbps Wireless Print Server 802.11b/g, 4 x RJ-45 USB 1.1
Pros: This unit setup pretty easily using the CD. It's takes time to find your printers, the network, etc. but once it does, it's an easy task.
Cons: I don't know if it's the USB1.1 connection or what, but this is too slow to be usable for graphic files. I am trying to print from two floors away on a wide format printer with Photoshop files that can be anywhere from 19 meg to 56 megabytes. Besides taking forever to print, it aborts mid-stream, losing paper and ink.
I already got my RMA number.
Other Thoughts: I wish there was an easy way to do this, seems like every time I need a solution it's like re-inventing the wheel and then it is an inferior solution. I will probably get an older PC and put it on the network, then print right from there. Too bad, I wish it would have worked.READ FULL REVIEW
