Pros: Good contrast and clarity, works well with PCs and gaming consoles (used it with both PS3 and Xbox 360), and sturdy bezel. This monitor is still going strong after almost 4 years of use.
Cons: The stand is a bit small and feels flimsy. Speakers started spurting out after about 1.5 years of use, but I usually plug in a pair of headphones to bypass the speakers anyway. Volume buttons can stick or not work right away occasionally.
Overall Review: Mainly bought this as a small monitor for my PS3 and Xbox when someone else was using the TV. Eventually used it with my gaming PC and now at work for the past year. I'm honestly surprised it's lasted this long, being that I've moved 3 times and dropped it a few times (thankfully while it was in its original packaging, which I kept because I'm cool like that). I mainly wanted to write this review to congratulate Hanns-G and show my gratitude for making a good monitor that has lasted almost 4 years.
Pros: The headset has some very nice features, including the push-button LED battery meter, media controls (volume up/down, previous/next track, and play/pause), and comes with a sturdy case to put it in. Good stereo sound and microphone. Worked great with my Galaxy SII and my wife's LG. Headset charges and keeps a charge for a long time. Recently, I hadn't charged the headset in about 3 months, and it still worked for a couple of hours before I needed to charge it.
Cons: They can get uncomfortable to wear after 2-3 hours, but you get used to it after a month or so (if it's worn 2-3 hours a day). While listening to music, the pitch will randomly change every few minutes or so, but only as much as an audiophile or maybe someone who has listened to the song many times would notice; often, it's very subtle but can be pronounced if you are stretching the limits of the 30-40 foot range of the headphones.
Also, it did not connect properly to my HP Elite 8460 laptop at work, which is part of the reason why I bought the headset. It works as a fancy microphone, but I could not get it to play music or other sounds no matter what bluetooth drivers I tried.
Overall Review: I would love to get a list of USB bluetooth dongles that would connect the headset properly on a laptop or PC.
Pros: Gigabit Ethernet speed is ridiculously fast, wireless is good
Cons: Gets a little hot from time to time
Overall Review: I bought this D-Link router to replace a lemon of a Belkin router I bought at a brick and mortar retailer whose name shall not be mentioned here... Anyway, the true Gigabit Ethernet on this router is amazing, and downloading times are significantly less - it really seems to open up my 30Mbps internet connection like no other router has. I've seen other reviews of this router that mention bad WiFi, but I sincerely haven't had an issue connecting and running a laptop and a couple of smart phones at the same time. Maybe I lucked out and got one that works well? Only time will tell.
