Most Favorable Review

Initial is Good

Initial 3.5" GPS Navigation
Initial 3.5" GPS Navigation

Pros: Sturdy, simple, easy to set up and use. Aquires signal fast. Street name font size is easy to read. Spoken turn directions and distance but does not speak street names. Does speak highway numbers. Seems accurate within 10-20 feet.

Cons: Doesn't speak street names. Doesn't Zoom out as far as I'd like to give a big enough overview of trip. Maximum zoom out doesn'y encompass the whole state of michigan for example. The speaker is a little small, underpowered, have to turn it to max to hear well at highway speeds, then it has some distortion.

Overall Review: Requests you make u-turns, but playing with the direction preferences seemed to eliminate that annoying little quirk. Recalculates routes quickly. Just ordered 9 more of these for a fleet of vehicles. Will let you know how many if any lemons show up in a bulk order.

Most Critical Review

Wireless issues

Samsung BD-F5700 Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Player
Samsung BD-F5700 Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Player

Pros: anynet+ compatable small nice quality in Blue Ray playback

Cons: Bought it for streaming Netflix but I can't even get through a 40 min TV show episode but it disconnects and freezes requiring a power off and on to get reconnected. WIFI connection takes way to long to establish when unit powers on. I have no netflix connection issues with an LG unit connecting to the same wireless network. Frustrating and time wasting pain in the backside

Overall Review: Should it really be this hard to get a wireless video streaming box right at this point in time? Thanks Samsung.....

Frequent reboots required

D-Link AirePremier DAP-2310 High Power Wireless-N Gigabit PoE Access Point with AP Manager Controller
D-Link AirePremier DAP-2310 High Power Wireless-N Gigabit PoE Access Point with AP Manager Controller

Pros: //good range with strong signal. Fast speeds.

Cons: Initially all was good with this access point. Connecting about 10-15 devices around house. Range was good and connectivty seemed fine. In the past few months it has developed a very annoying habit of failing to transmit data. Devices will read as connected but there really is no active connection. This is most noticeable on a LG DVD player with wireless that we use to watch netflix. However ipads, my sons computer and laptops are all variably affected. It is becoming more frequent occurring up to 3-4 times/day and requiring a power cycle of the access point before it will function again.

Don't be fooled

Plantronics U10 Headset Replacement Cable (26716-01 )
Plantronics U10 Headset Replacement Cable (26716-01 )

Pros: ....

Cons: ....

Overall Review: This does not connect any Plantronics H series headset to any phone with a compatible jack. Called Plantronics when my H91 + this cord (part # 26716-01) wouldn't work with my Nortel T7316E. Was informed this cord is for amplifiers only. The cord you need for a direct connection to a phone is the A10 Direct Connect Cable (part # 66268-03). Coincidently, Newegg doesn't seem to carry that one. Had to order it from Headsets Direct, fourty five buck + shipping. Might have gone with a different headset if I knew it was an extra fourty five dollars instead of ten dollars.
