Pros: As advertised. Really simple and versatile with the included cabling. The software to toggle between PCs from my Windows keyboard works great (for those without a Scroll key, like me).
Before I purchased it, I went online and chatted with their Tech Support group to find out if my monitor resolution would be supported, as the other 2 competitor's boxes did not and were vague about the subject. The StarTech device worked as their team said it would. Took less than a 10 minute chat for them to verify.
Overall Review: I'd purchase StarTech products again. Never heard of them before, but they exceeded my expectations.
Pros: Small, low noise, low power consumption. Perfect for my theatre room. The bundle with the HD and memory included was an easy decision. Great graphics. Great sound. Despite the negative comments, the wireless worked flawlessly first time, and gets just as good a reception as 2 laptops and a netbook in the house. Glad I went to this model with the updated chip and graphics set! Pay the extra for it!
Cons: Their tech support online got a little condescending, so I got out of the IM and figured out the configuration issue myself. Was my bad in set up, but still a little sympathy and real help would have been nice.
Overall Review: Great value. We are also using it to push Pandora and the digital music collection from our server out to the sound system throughout the house. The wireless works flawlessly and has great speed and connectivity. Running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
