Pros: Core2 Duo a plus, two vacant memory slots, two vacant PCI slots. Fast enough for web, mail and RDP..
Also comes with recovery/os disc.
Works as expected.
Cons: Definitely a refurb/scratch/dent - be prepared. Mouse was smashed so it had to be tossed out. No big deal.
Overall Review: Great system at a pretty good price with discs.
Cons: I purchased two.
1- The Config Utility is awful, no way to go to Windows config, Soft AP is useless
2- Had to reboot PC to bring the card back.
3- The second antenna port is either dead, not connected or whatever. This is verified by two access points at two different locations. Both of which are ten feet from the Xmit antenna. My thought for this application would allow selection of a different AP when so desired. The same antenna registers 98% on the top antenna port and near 0% on the bottom port. - Fail
Overall Review: I will be filling out RMA's for both.
Pros: Good fidelity, sound fields selection, inputs. Good volume.
3 HDMI 1 HDMI out, Optical..USB
Remote is pretty good. Harmony Remote supported.
Front Panel display can be turned off.
Cons: Not really a con but,, the base for my TV was a few millimeters wider than the distance between the units molded feet. Hence the unit would not sit flush on my console top. This can be remedied with a little ingenuity, ;-)
Overall Review: None
Pros: Great price for multi device programmable remote.
Cons: Different interface than what us "Harmony" peeps are used to. But all in all good buy.
Pros: Does exactly what it is designed for. I needed cablebox video in another room, used existing Cat5e wiring (with fingers crossed) and the device performed well. A small tweak of the EQ and voila. A big plus is that you only need one cat5e cable. Others require two!!! Also has a repeat HDMI output at the transmitter end so you don't lose local video and audio. Have not verified Dolby,EX,PLII, TrueHD yet but in my application it really doesn't matter.
Comes with mounting tabs, screws, and tweaker screwdriver. Can't beat that. Tripp Lite never disappoints.
Cons: None at the time of this writing.
Overall Review: My config is FIOS box to Tripp Lite to Panasonic Plasma.
To change channels at the "headend" I use a Next Generations IR/RF Extender.
Pros: Quick and easy to use. No layers of software to learn.
Does a great job. S-VHS capture a bonus. Stereo audio.
USB. I cut loose my DVR playback and record with one of the Preset Capture times, 30,60,90,120. You can also let it run on a crash record.
Cons: No cons really. Only minor, minor gripe is the finished or completed capture playback is a little soft, not razor sharp as during capture. No biggie.
Overall Review: A little pricey but it works and works well. You won't be disappointed.
Cons: Cheap plastic, flimsy, not durable. Joint broke, tried using the safety collar to no avail. Discarded into recylce bin. May come back as a tie wrap or soda bottle.. Look elsewhere.
Also not that much better than standard stick antenna provided with nw card.
Pros: Great device, runs cool. Speeds consistent. Ports never lockup.
Overall Review: Plug it in, and your good to go. TrendNet products are pretty good and competitively priced.
They don't just "Lift things up and put them down" ..
Pros: Finally, The Rock Has Come Back To.... Oops sorry,
Finally, these guys at OXO got it right. Does not hurl out a bunch of towels when you rip off one. Easy to clean, easy to refill. Done.
Cons: None, base is a little big, not a problem though.
Overall Review: Buy this, you won't be disappointed.
Finally, The Rock Has Come Back To....Newegg!!!
Pros: Works great!!! Many settings, can be configured as an access point or router. "N" band capable, got it to 270mbps.
Cons: None really. Entering the gui is a little peculiar.
Overall Review: Buy it.
Pros: Works as an Access Point or a Access Client. Many features available. Multiple SSID's for controlling access/security.
Cons: Was a little pain in the .... to set up, like hours, and I know stuff.
Overall Review: For the price, it's well worth the efforts you put in. You'll see. Buy a couple and you will be a happy camper, then yell DVD real loud... :-)
