Pros: One cannot help but smile upon reading "100% Generic New and Good Quality" which is what the products vendor wrote about this network cable tester. It is far better than those words. It accurately tests RJ45, RJ11, CAT-5 and Cat-6 cables and does so with aplomb. The sequentially flashing LED's unerringly proclaim O.K. or dead for each individual line of a cable. The neat, ingenious even, way the detachable remote unit inner-sleeves to the side of the main unit quickly makes a two-handed job require only one when both cable ends are in hand. Plus the remote easily detaches when needed as a true remote and is ambidextrous, that is, it is reversible to enable CAT or RJ cable inputs to be side by side on the same end of the main which precludes having to flip the paid unit over to insert the second cable. Additionally, the remote/master mating design will most probably outlive the instrument which is surprisingly sturdy and robust.
Cons: Ridiculous to dream of such at this price, but a USB port would be an outstanding plus.
Other Thoughts: It works well !! Need it ? Buy it !READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fino 30"- 60" Inch TV Tilt Wall Mount w/ Screen Cleaner & HDMI Cable
Pros: It is designed for wall mounting; however, I elected to mount it on an articulating arm wall mount that extends 22in and has a VESA plate size 100 x 200 (MIS E) rated @ 105lbs. The VESA spec of the TV being mounted is 400 x 400 which left 100 end play on each side. As this Fino mount features NO detents or pawls on the top rail to serve as positive locators at the various VESA size locations the fabrication of a pair of rail 'locks' was required supplemented by the included lower rail 'jam screws'. All this verbiage to advise this unit is very sturdy and is as advertised; however, with the below 'cons'... I rate it @ 4++
Cons: No positive VESA location detents or stabilizers.
Other Thoughts: Plus features: Excellent spec HDMI cord (10ft) and a vial of di-ionized water with "proprietary polymers" and a purpose woven cloth to clean a TV screen. With a true positive rail locking method, this wall mount would be 5 stars. Four plus plus is fairly tall cotton. Buy it... the price is right.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG 42LB5600 42" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV
Pros: LG color technology now rivals Sony and Samsung. Highly tweakable. 42in @ barely 20lbs enables confident 22in arm extension on a custom articulating wall mount installation comprised of Newegg's Fino Universal 30"- 60" Inch TV Tilt Wall Mount # 9SIA10V1US4647 securely attached to a Cheetah articulating arm # 9SIA0MC0959154; also a Newegg purchase. This color bed has stunning color, plus the digital audio out enables theatre sound atmosphere. Low profile right angle power cord female end enables flush mount of wall brackets as does HDMI port 2. "0" dead pixels on arrival. Two week burn-in and all remains well. Cooler running than most and super thin with an almost not there bezel. Very competitively priced plus 'as promised' Newegg delivery. Happy camper.
Cons: Should you have pets and/or youngsters and do not plan to wall mount this unit, be advised the 'legs' base of this unit WILL dictate a securing safety tether as they are an accident waiting to happen. Sound may be better than average; however, it continues the legacy of less than desirable acoustics from TV's.
Other Thoughts: Need it? Buy it. Great value!READ FULL REVIEW
