This review is from: BYTECC OP-SW401 4 to 1 Optical Audio Switcher
Pros: Works as advertised. allows 4 optical devices to be switched with one output. This was a great solution for my TV setup since I am using a soundbar with just one optical input for audio. I didn't want to purchase another receiver for this room and the switcher easily allows me to change the source from my satellite box to my bluray player, etc. I also likes the manual input switch on the unit in addition to the remote.
Cons: The included remote is tiny, about half the size of a credit card, and a little flimsy. We will see if it breaks first or if i can manage to lose it first. The other main issue is the glaringly bright blue LED to denote which port is active. This thing is bright! I am talking the Eye of Sauron here, bright. A little piece of electrical tape did the trick for me.
Other Thoughts: a little pricey but one of the few solutions out there for my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NEC Display Solutions MultiSync EA273WM-BK Black 27" 5ms HDMI Height,Swivel & Pivot Adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor with LED Backliting 300 cd/m2 25,000:1 DCR (1000:1) w/Speakers
Pros: Great monitor! As other reviewers have noted, the color and clarity is outstanding. I am using two of these side by side for my work and I don't realize how I ever survived with my old 22" monitors. I haven't used this monitor for gaming so i can't comment about that. I find the onscreen controls intuitive and well placed. You can't go wrong with this monitor. I would also make sure you have significant desk real estate to support this monitor because while the base has a small footprint, the actual monitor is the size of a billboard. I am also pleased with the number and variety of connection options.
Cons: A little expensive, but wait for a sale. As noted by one reviewer: you get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: I have to applaud NewEgg for their customer service. I missed a sale by a day (my fault) and I called customer service the next day and they still gave me a significant discount. To me, that just demonstrates how great NewEgg really is and the caliber/commitment to excellent customer serviceREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sony Blu-ray Player BDP-N460
Pros: Very easy to use, fast load times, and great picture. Netflix. I have had zero issues with this unit and the picture is wonderful.
Cons: No Pandora, hence minus 1 egg (but i knew that going in to the purchase)
Other Thoughts: I found that the internet/network setup was painless and works well. YMMV.READ FULL REVIEW
