Using xbmc, plays back 1080p mkv content perfectly with no pauses. Good cheap htpc client, unless you want to use netflix, more later
Cons: USB 3.0 causes the OS to pause using the supplied drivers with Win 7 x64. A mouse plugged in to USB 3.0 slot also pauses. I Reloaded the box with Win 7 x32 and haven't loaded the USB 3.0 drivers yet and the box works perfectly. I will try to find drivers not causing this issue once I get the box imaged and I hope it can be resolved.
Cannot play netflix HD content and barely handled non-HD content. This is probably a silverlight issue as the box is trying to play it all back with the CPU even though Use Hardware Acceleration is checked in silverlight.
This review is from: LG LE5300 series 32" Class (31.5" Diag.) 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV 32LE5300
Pros: Lots of features, nice picture, very thin, works very well as a TV.
Cons: I bought this to use as a monitor for my gaming PC and have been very disappointed. It has very good specs and 2.4ms response time should have been fast enough to work on a PC, but it actually wasn't.
I change its settings to turn off all post processing, tried different modes, etc. and it always seemed to have a slight lag to it which made it hard to live with.
I moved this one to the kitchen to be a TV and bought a Sony Bravia 32" for my PC, which I am very happy with.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy if you are looking to use it as a monitor. Good choice if you are looking for a TV however.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: What makes this router a great buy is the ability to flash it with dd-wrt. Currently version 1.0 and 1.1 have 4mb of flash and 16mb of ram which allows you to run all versions of dd-wrt except the mega version.
DD-WRT adds a lot more features and makes this router very stable.
Cons: Not 1GB and N, but I knew that when I bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
