Pros: Easy a pie to fly. Durable based on my wipeouts. Quick charge with about 12 to 14 minute flights. If you want longer flights, spend way more money and they won't fly indoors without ripping art off the wall!
Cons: None. Fun for cheap
Overall Review: REALLY 25 bucks for a pretty intricate little machine that I didn't build. This thing is LIGHT..it has to be, or it would need a much bigger battery and cost much more. It's a toy!
Pros: Very simple setup. Very little documentation, but most understand what to do. Covers most of my 10 acre lot and covers my entire house with 90% being the lowest corners. Nothing else came close. I use with POE and have not lost signal in 6 weeks.
Cons: Not much of a gripe, but as stated, there is little documentation. Simple to figure out though. If you've setup wifi before you'll know what to do. I don't know where people are reading that the POE injector is included? I guess if it doesn't say that it's NOT included, then they assume that it is.
Overall Review: Our house is way out in the country and we lose Winstream quite a bit. When it comes back up I have NEVER had to touch this thing. It is up and running on it's own. I have it stuck way up in a return chase on my first floor and hate the thought of having to go back in and mess with it, so I did the injector route. I'm using the EnGenius EPE-5818AF injector.
Pros: Just like any other hard drive, but MUCH bigger!
Cons: Zero...see below.
Overall Review: I have a 16TB WHS(ASUS P6T6) feeding 5 networked mini Win 7 MCE's. I bet I've had 60-70 drives in the 8-9 years of building machines. As I grow my needs I just upgrade. I can guarantee that I have lost at least 1 drive from every single manufacture. When they are new, NE steps up and RMA's them. When they are older, I treat them like tires, they get changed. They will all fail eventually. I would alway recommend that you DO YOUR BACKUPS! These drives running like a champ, but I have a backup just in case.
Pros: Worked right out of the box! Silent! My theater is totally quiet!
Pros: EASY to set up, ZERO adjustments. Just plug in and leave it alone.
Cons: Doesn't have racing stripes and won't solve world hunger.
Pros: Nice solid feel, the quality is there dispite what some will say. Great idea to combine the two needs for MCE in one bundle. Very pleased.
Cons: As one reviewer wrote, the mouse requires super talents. I have kept a mouse atached for when I am not stable enough to be exacting as required to surf. Maybe a rollerball would have been a better choice by MS, but people would even complain about that too.
Overall Review: Brilliant idea, needs some work. I am happy enough to own three. (one for each room)
Pros: Obviously made to work ONLY with MCE, and it works EXCELLENTLY with it. I have three MCE systems in the house (Kitchen, bedroom, and theater) and I can aim at ANY of the recievers and make my choices. VERY pleased.
Cons: While IR is excellent, RF would allow a bit more room to move around. No real complaints.
Overall Review: Puzzled by the dead battery stories. I put Energizers in mine in Feb of 05 and they are still running great.
