Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player W/ Motion Sensor Control & Angry Birds - 3100X-B

4 out of 5 eggs Great product, good value, subpar refurbishing 04/18/2014

This review is from: Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player W/ Motion Sensor Control & Angry Birds - 3100X-B

Pros: * Easy to install and use
* Large variety of private and public channels
* Low refurbished cost
* Plays USB content using Roku media player app as well as 3rd party apps
* Plex support via the Plex app or the free RARflix
* Both wifi and wired Ethernet
* Works with HDTVs and old TVs

Cons: * Plastic cover was full of scratches
* Batteries had to be replaced within 2 hours

Other Thoughts: The Roku 2 XS is a better product than the newer versions of the Roku 1 and 2. The Roku 3 has a faster processor, but also costs significantly more. For most users, the Roku 2 XS is a great value. Yet the unit received had a previous rough life. Don't know how someone could scratch a Roku that much. I don't place much weigh on aesthetics, but the unit received appeared much more heavily used than a manufacturer refurbished product.

Obihai OBI100 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent for DOY VoIP 04/15/2014

This review is from: Obihai OBI100 VoIP Telephone Adapter with Google Voice & SIP

Pros: * Low cost
* Very good voice quality
* Not tied to a specific VoIP provider
* Remote web management at
* Supports two VoIP service providers
* Supports softphones

Cons: * White plastic shows some discoloring after a year. Black or dark gray plastic would last longer.

Other Thoughts: Used the Obi100 with Google Voice for over a year with excellent results. It is very reliable and voice quality is about as good as landlines (assuming a stable Internet connection).

Due to GV discontinuing XMPP in May, I switched to Callcentric and Localphone. Callcentric has free DIDs in NY with free incoming calls. Localphone has low rates for outgoing calls on a pay per call basis. The GV DID can be forwarded to Callcentric so yo don't have to change numbers.

Having two service providers gives you the flexibility of having one for incoming calls and one for outgoing calls. You could also receive calls from both providers, although with a single phone jack you can't answer both calls simultaneously.

Many VoIP providers support the Obihai adapters without a fixed monthly fee that are very economical for low outgoing call volumes. If you make a lot of outgoing calls, a yearly plan such as Vestalink or Anveo may be justifiable.
