This review is from: Yamaha EPH-C300 In-Ear Headphones, White
Pros: Sale price
Cons: Item arrived later than promised. It was supposed to come with 3 sizes of ear buds. Wife needs a Small. Only 1 small bud in the box. Contacted Yamaha support. They said they'd send one to me. Still waiting weeks later. So I can't give a fair assessment of the performance since we can't use them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ViewSonic VA2246M-LED Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD 16:9 Full HD 1080P Monitor, 250 cd/m2 1000:1 (typ.) / 10,000,000:1 (Dynamic), DVI/D-Sub, Built-in Speakers, VESA Mountable
Pros: Great picture. I adjusted the brightness down to 40 from 60 and the colors became very rich, especially the blues. Others have complained about monitors with wobbly stands. This one is solid. Also annoying red power light. This light shines down on the desk, not right at you. I replaced a 19" 4:3 losing an inch in screen height, not noticeable. For me the stand is perfect height and tilt is fine. For the price I give it 6 Eggs.
Other Thoughts: Out of the box the stand did not seem tiltable. I saw in the specs it had a range of -5 to 18°. I thought it might have shim for the tilt as it sat at -5. I took it back apart, couldn't figure it out. Contacted Viewsonic even, he said did you try to force it? I applied some pressure, and duh, duh. It's just very stiff (probably for a reason and stability). It tilted back just fine.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link Wireless-N Home Router (DIR-601), N150
Pros: Dlink tech support was especially impressive. I could not get my home hosted zoneedit domain to work. Ports were forwarded properly, all setup correctly, which support verified. They answered the phone quickly and elevated my problem. Even called me back later in the afternoon. Turns out the problem was with my zoneedit DNS update and not the router, which I discovered on my own. Replaced my old Linksys B which was getting flakey.
Cons: N150, but probably just fine for me in my environment.
Other Thoughts: This router was too good of a deal to pass up. Plenty of port forwarding options, and the GUI was easy to navigate.READ FULL REVIEW
