SiliconDust HDHR4-2US HDHomeRun Connect 2-Tuner ATSC DLNA/UPnP Compatible Streaming Media Player
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy setup, good reception, low power consumption

Cons: The Android app is appalling (not to mention not included).

Other Thoughts: I have this in my attic where the temperatures easily get over 35 (in the American West), still going strong. The device uses the MPEG2 codec so if you're like me and using a Raspberry Pi as an XBMC host, you'll need to purchase the appropriate license from them.

VisionTek 900614 Radeon HD 7750 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 6x mini DP Video Card (Eyefinity 6)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price, and the ability to drive 6 monitors.

Cons: The card can drive two non-DisplayPort monitors using the included passive adapters, any subsequent DVI only monitors will require an active adapter. Less a con, and more of needing to do your research.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a way for my primary workstation to be able to drive 6 monitors. Not the greatest setup for gaming, but if you're a developer it's amazing. I have a setup that allows me to have simultaneous editing sessions for IDEs and their associated debug windows, a Hangouts window in full-screen for video conferencing, and a 42" LCD for videos. Using Debian 8 (Jessie) and XFCE, ATI's proprietary driver is quirky, but does the job. You can either create a massive virtual workspace (this does odd things to XFCE's panels), or have a seperate X session open for each and use Xinerama to allow movement of windows between them. I typically opt for the former.
