Most Critical Review

Great picture quality, but has issues.

Pros: Picture quality is great. Nice refresh rate for the price. Overall it is an attractive monitor.

Cons: OSD doesn't work at all. Once I mounted the monitor using the VESA mounting option, the power button no longer works, however the button next to it properly powers on the monitor. Also, the monitor doesn't stay in power-saving mode when powering down the computer, so I have to click the "power" button every time I boot up the PC.

Overall Review: They definitely cut some quality corners to meet a price point, and I bought it because of its low price. It does what I need it to do, so I can't complain. I hope I can rely on this for years to come.

D-Link DI-102 Broadband Internet/VoIP Accelerator
D-Link DI-102 Broadband Internet/VoIP Accelerator

Pros: This device completely improved my vonage service. I work from home a lot using my company's VPN, and end up on the phone a lot at the same time. Prior to buying this device, my calls were choppy or hollow sounding. The QOS features on my Linksys RT31P2 were useless, and the DI-102 solved this problem with practically no configuration.

Cons: Like one guy said, this thing does have some sort of problem requiring a daily reboot with certain devices. For the first 6 months, it worked flawlessly. Then I swapped out my RT31P2 with a Linksys WRV54G router, and also upgraded my cable modem to a Motorola SB5120. Now I have to cycle the power once a day on my DI-102. I'm sure there's a configuration issue causing this problem, but I'll be darned if I can find anybody with a solution. If you buy this, and this problem happens to you, return it while you still can... Otherwise, enjoy!
