This review is from: D-Link Xtreme Gigabit Router (DIR-655) Wireless N300, USB SharePort, Gigabit
Pros: * Great range with remote antennas
* Installation flexibility with remote antennas
* Nice throughput for streaming
* No dropped connections
* Great range
Cons: * Firmware update a bit of a pain
Other Thoughts: Guess I was lucky as I have owned this router for several years and haven't had dropouts or range issues. I purchased it because of the remote antenna setup that allowed me to mount in my media in-wall box in the pantry with the antenna outside neatly. I just updated the firmware to version 2.10 from 2.06 and there isn't an area in my single story 2600 Sq. Ft house that isn't max strength.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip 1.1" Black 4GB MP3 Player SDMX22-004G-A57K
Pros: * Excellent sound quality (with new earbuds)
* Good radio reception
* Very light weight
* Handy clip
* Decent battery life
* Great price
* Accepts SDHD cards
Cons: * Screen unreadable in bright sunlight
Other Thoughts: I have owned this handy little player for about two years after losing an earlier Sansa player. It does everything I need in a take-it-with you player. It is perfect for taking to a workout, pool or tuning out screaming kids on the plane.
One tip is to buy a cheap silicone slip case for it and it will last forever (or until battery dies).
The second tip is to visit the Rock Box site and you can transform this into a completely customized media box, but I have other devices to do that.
And know the reset procedure of holding down the power button for +20 seconds. I owned this one for a couple years before I had to reset it, almost threw it out.
Pros: * Display is clear and bright-even outside true 1080P
* Battery life is as advertised, great with additional dock
* Video performance rocks!
* Very thin and compact-but solid
* HDMI interface
Cons: * No delete button on the dock/keyboard?
* Slow data transfer via cable interface
* Slow boot-up
Other Thoughts: I've had many notebook computers, but this was my second tablet after a budget first 7".
My Apple using friends are amazed by the video when I run an MP4 1080P on it like Hobbit. But you have to run high resolution videos use the internal memory with the right video software--use MX, it doesn't lag and skip and will recognize & play DVD VOB files as well.
Don't bother to try and download a 16 Gig video file with the cable interface, it will take a couple days, I use the USB interface from a 2 TB movie server through the dock/keyboard or have moved via the MSD card, then to internal memory. Haven't tried wireless yet, will report. Also, haven't tried to run from the MSD card since installing MX, which works way better than the others on this platform.
Tip: Put two thicker rubber feet on the back of the keyboard and it won't lift itsself off the stock ones when you use it unfolded and slide on your lap off the seatback tray in the aircraft.
Try all the game software and make sure you enable the Tegra and GPU features as there is much difference in performance on this platform--MOBO video player wouldn't even respond to the laptop vertical/horizontal position after installed and was very jerky as was the Goggle video player at high resolution.
Just downloaded new firmware and will report back, but this does EVERYTHING I have asked except fast large file transfers---can't have it back. Too bad that several web sites force mobile app display as this baby easily handles the regular sites with ease.
