Pros: They said it was "open source". Well, they weren't kidding: I flashed OpenWRT on the thing straight from the Netgear administration panel. I loved this router so much I basically got two of my friends/colleagues to get some for themselves.
Cons: Only con: I didn't posess it sooner.
This RAM is vengeful
Pros: . Triple-channel 24gb pack acquired at an extremely discounted price . 24gb of sweet sweet memory goodness is REALLY good for everything I can throw at the machine. . Over a year of operation and these things haven't failed, ever.
Cons: . My case doesn't have a window so I can't see the RAM.
Overall Review: 24gb, at the price I paid? Satisfied as hell.
Does as advertised and a bit more
Pros: . Small form factor . Low power usage . Discreet but soldered-on GPU; some tasks can be GPU-accelerated
Cons: . CPU is really not powerful; don't compile a Linux kernel on this
Overall Review: It's a computer in a living room. For the price, over the years, and taking in account that it has a bluray player, it's been quite the satisfying little thing.
Perfect antenna->video device
Pros: Pros of this device are numerous, but I'll keep it short: it took me barely over a man-hour to get that puppy up and running on my antenna using MythTV-Backend, and less than thirty minutes to hook up the backend to XBMC. From there, it works exactly as advertised.
Cons: Cons are few: can't buy more at the same price I got it initially, and the web interface is ridiculously spartan. "Works as designed", I guess.
Overall Review: If you need a little box that does ATSC -> Video that can be controlled by a remote computer and if you have the knowledge to hook it up to your current setup, the HDHomeRun is as good a product as any. Bonus: I'm using it in Linux with nary a hiccup.
