Most Favorable Review

my parents love these phones!

Panasonic KX-TG6434T 1.9 GHz Digital DECT 6.0 4X Handsets Cordless Phone Integrated Answering Machine
Panasonic KX-TG6434T 1.9 GHz Digital DECT 6.0 4X Handsets Cordless Phone Integrated Answering Machine

Pros: Large clear display Very clear phone with high volume for my parents Has many handsets wtih it Has worked well for these last 2 months Set the phone book on one handset and they all sync up

Cons: doesn't have a caller id screen on the answering machine but does have one on the handset if you check messages from there

Overall Review: I bought for my parents and it is working very well for them. It isn't heavy and it is comfortable. I have to set the phonebook for them but then they have used it trouble free. They can each get on a phone and talk like a conference call. They are loving the phones

tripled my speed

D-Link DFE-530TX+ Fast Ethernet Adapter 10/100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
D-Link DFE-530TX+ Fast Ethernet Adapter 10/100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: put on older computer (10+years) with only 256 megs of ram and windows xp. Using speedtest.net, it went from 5mbps to 17+mbps. This is an excellent board.

Cons: None for my application. It worked very well.

Overall Review: I am considering adding to some newer computers. The board must really have some good buffers on it to make this kind of difference. My mother-in-law can do streaming video now and she couldn't before.

Great Product!

Ooma OOMA Core VoIP Phone System
Ooma OOMA Core VoIP Phone System

Pros: Free (after inital cost) Great voice quality Cheaper than it used to be Has an ooma scout (would be nice if it included two) easy to set up

Cons: Had to play with the voice quality some to get the best quality When my mom calls, I can hear a small echo of my own voice but that doesn't happen when I call her or anyone else calls me. It could be the phone company out where she lives which is a very small phone company.

Overall Review: No more monthly vonage fees. The voice quality is probably not as good as vonage but it is very good. The only problem I have had is listed above. Everyone on the other end of the phone says it sounds fantastic and I have to admit it sounds like they are in the same room. Excellent product. I look forward to many years of no phone bills.

in my dell mini 9

HyperX 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KHX4200S2LL/2G

Pros: overall, a generally more snappy response from web browsing on my dell mini 9 with this installed instead of the 512 mb it came with. snappy is the right word. a slight but noticeable increase in running applications on it now but I am not running windows, just ubuntu. waiting for windows 7 and then the 2gb will be even more worth it.

Cons: none from the memory yet. not noticing any heat issues. as for the acer heat problems in other reviews, I have had friends with really hot acers before. My dell mini 9 has air vents directly above the memory so I am hoping this will help with the heat.

Overall Review: my ssd is only the stock 4gb right now and I am waiting on a 32 gb faster replacement. so that is still the bottleneck. also, reviews of windows 7 on netbooks sound promising. Glad i purchased this memory. Works fantasticly so far. I recommend this over the stock memory. It is faster than what was in it.

very nice second hard drive

Pros: very speedy quite trouble free

Cons: I have noticed some price drops recently in the 1.5 tb drives

Overall Review: Using the drive for storing tv shows in my dvr set up using Vista home premium on a quad-core dell inspiron. paid $400 for the computer. I do other computer tasks while it is recording movies and tv shows on the hauppauge dual tuner card (also happy with). So I needed to upgrade my memory from 2gb to 4gb and get a second harddrive. now I don't get any skips. I can record 2 HD TV programs, watch HD streaming Lost on abc.com and write my papers due for class all at the same time with nothing interfering with each other. Very happy with this purchase.

works fine

CORSAIR 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory Model VS2GBKIT667D2

Pros: installed it on my Dell Inspiron 530 and it works very well. it came in packaging it was easy to remove from. the price was very affordable at $25 for 2 gigs.

Cons: The location on the Dell Inspiron 530 to install the additional RAM was very hard to get to but that wasn't the Rams fault.

Overall Review: My processor is a QuadCore and I had only 2 gigs previously. It obviously needed the 4 gigs. It is running much better now. At these prices, I don't see any reason to only run a computer with 2 gigs. Go ahead and get the additoinal 2 gigs for an additional $25, the price of a pizza.
