Pros: Fast, solid and does everything it's meant to do. Removed most of the "bloatware" (including McAfee) and it's fine.
Cons: No bluetooth--shame on me for not checking the spec's closely, sort of thought all laptops came with it these days. Not a big deal as it's for my wife who seldom uses BT.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG ST600 Smart TV Upgrader with Web Browsing
Pros: Quality of video (on my 1080i CRT) is very good, streams nicely from my NAS (Synology DS210j) without problems.
Cons: User interface is very slow and cumbersome to use with the virtual keyboard. "Fast" forward is maybe 2X even when max'd at six arrows, which means it takes forever to move forward in a file. Going backwards, so far as I've been able to determine, doesn't work at all...it continues to skip forward (slowly) even when all six arrows point backwards. It does this both on the network and with an attached USB drive. Compared to my Asus HDP-R1, which isn't perfect, this LG offering is a joke, and a bad one at that. It doesn't handle ISO files, as the Asus does, and it's somewhat limited in what video formats it can read, again compared to the Asus. In fairness, I knew from the literature that it was more limited.
Other Thoughts: Maybe, with luck, firmware updates (there's been one already) will help...but until that time, this thing's close to useless for my application.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TE100-P1U Mini Print Server RJ45 USB 2.0
Other Thoughts: I guess I should've been wary...seems to setup as advertised but is never able to see the printer. Tried 9100, LPR etc but to no avail...printer error, printer busy etc. messages and the USB LED never did light up. Printer is known for being tough to interface using USB and maybe that's the problem. TrendNet online documentation is not overly helpful and somewhat contradictory at times.READ FULL REVIEW
