4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Speakers
For the price i think these speakers offer a chic and interesting quality, the sound quality isnt anything godly but its very good, the touch system is interesting and easy, although a little gimmick-y.

i did have very little trouble setting it up, i had to turn it off and on a few times to get the left and right speakers working but other than that ive experienced no problems.

a good buy for a fair price, i reccomend it to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect eMac Accessory
I am very pleased with my purchase. The sound quality is perfect. The sound fills the entire room--and occasionally the rest of the house. They compliment the eMac design very well.

Initially, I had a problem similar to the person who ranked the speakers with one star and then I realized that I hadn't plugged the speakers in completely.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT SPEAKERS
i just got these speakers from Amazon yesterday. Setting them up was a snap and the controls are easy to use. Getting the best sound is easy, usually just a twist of a knob, and the volume control blow knobs awway

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting...
These speakers are AWESOME if you only want them to play music on your PC. Of course, with only 2.1 channels, they are not as well suited for gaming...
The sound quality is outstanding, IF properly set up. The trick is getting the volume, bass and treble levels correct. See, Windows has these settings, iTunes has another set of these settings (independent from Windows), and the sub in this set has these settings (independent from Windows and iTunes). You have to play with these settings for a while to get the most out of these speakers, or else you can hear the clipping/overdriving of the audio signal. Once you do find the sweet spot though... These speakers ROCK. Just a side note... all of my MP3s are encoded at 320kbs, so that may help, as I don't have 128kbs garbage files to begin with...

1-0 out of 5 stars Gimmicky and stupid
The only thing these speakers have going for them is their unusual appearance. The touch-sensitive volume control is needlessly complex (why would anyone consider it better than, say, a KNOB?), and offer no indication of how loud the volume is. The volume control stopped working entirely five minutes after I started using the speakers.

The bass was fine, but the sound was tinny and crackly no matter what I set the treble to. And the sound quality is downright awful from a distance... not only can these not fill a room with sound, but they don't sound right unless you're sitting right in front of your computer. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
At first I was a bit hesitant to get Sandisk products because I've heard so many people complaining. But after doing thorough research, I found that the rest of the brands were being equally lambasted by users. So, I decided to choose based on technicals and not opinions. Well, this CompactFlash card is quite powerful and what was the bearing point for me to lean and buy this is its price. I've used it to record digital video clips, I've taken pictures of all sizes and with different visual effects, I've done high-speed shutter (~2.2 shots/sec @ 1024x768) and it works phenomenally and flawlessly. I have not had ANY of the errors people write so much about and I'm actually sure enough that I'm willing to recommend it to others.
The 256MB its sufficient for about 200 3.1-Megapixel high-quality pictures. Which can hold a weekend's vacation worth of pictures without having to erase or transfer them to your computer. However, if you can afford the extra $50, I suggest buying the 512Mb one. In short: good value, excellent performance, good price and good quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super fast memory card
Using a Nikon Coolpix 2100 (only 2 megapixels) this card is really very fast. It writes almost instantly, it seems, compared to the Lexar card that came with the camera. Even uncompressed 2 megapixel shots write in less than a second, so you can shoot a lot, and for smaller images (like 2 megapixels) the capacity is over 500 compressed, or over 250 uncompressed.... it's great.
Lifetime warrantee on the card makes me comfortable it's not going to crap out (I just got it yesterday, so I can't comment on it's longevity, but there's that lifetime warrantee, so...), and it's really affordable from Amazon.com.
I recommned this memory card with no reservations.

5-0 out of 5 stars Its great!
This is a great card, works perfectly in the canon powershot s500 digital elph. I can take 99 top notch photos. If you bought the card, just be sure to register at www.sandisk.com/registration within 30 days or you will get no warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good with my A75
Great, fast ! You need a 2.0 or PCIMA card reader for faster transfers to computer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Only faster in SOME cameras, slower in others
I was hoping to increase the write speed on my Minolta 7i which makes me wait for a full write before I can take the next photo. In this camera, the Ultra II is actually slower than a "regular" SanDisk 256MB card. Ran a couple of quick tests, using the Ultra II, a "regular speed" SanDisk CF and a 1G IBM CF Micro Drive:
--------------------------------------------
In the 7i, taking a macro photo of a catalog page with lots of colors, small images and text (5 MP):

UltraII - 13 seconds RAW : 15 seconds TIF : 4.5 seconds full size JPG.

Regular - 11 seconds RAW: 14 seconds TIF : 3.8 seconds JPG

1G IBM MD - 12 Seconds RAW : 18 seconds TIF : 4.0 seconds JPG
_______________________________
Performance in my Nikon D-100 was better when taking the same (6.1MP) landscape photo:

Ultra II - 5.1 seconds RAW : 25 seconds TIF : 3.2 seconds full size JPG

Regular - 5.4 seconds RAW : 26 seconds TIF : 3.7 seconds JPG

1G IBM MD - 11 seconds RAW : 29.3 seconds TIF : 4.2 seconds JPG
*******************************************

When I purchased this card, Amazon was having a GREAT sale on it, I paid a dollar more than what a "standard" speed card would cost, so I am not irritated. If I had paid the normal retail price though, I'd be upset with its less than stellar performance in the intended application.

So, make sure that your camera can take advantage of the increased write speed of this card before you spend the extra money on it over a "standard" speed card. I'll be using it as backup on the Nikon rather than as a primary on the Minolta. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Travelling
I just bought a Sony DSC-T7 and a 30GB iPod Photo in preparation for a trip around the world. This connector is my dream come true! You just plug the connector into the iPod and plus in your camera via USB. The iPod just prompts you to import and takes it from there.

Your photos are imported and converted into a regular thumbnailed iPod photo album that you can browse and view. I was happy to discover that movies are copied over too! You can't view the movies, but at least you can store them. When you're ready, just connect the iPod to a computer via USB and copy over the folders with your original image and video files.

It takes awhile and does require you to run the iPod on its battery (since it occupies the power port). I considered the Epson P-2000, which is faster and has a bigger screen. However the iPod is less expensive, less than half the weight, a smaller form factor, capabable of more storage (30 or 60GB), and a way better music player that I will actually use on a regular basis for more than just temporary photo storage. If I was a photo professional out on shoots I might go with the Epson, but I'm more of an average joe that's just looking for a travel photo solution... and the iPod Photo is perfect for me!

Paired with my DSC-T7, we're talking super-small and ultra-portable. Everything I need for photos and music on this trip I can fit in 2 pockets.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Idea... Bad Engineering
The Apple Ipod Camera Connector screams intelligence on the part of Apple, but falls far short.DO NOT think of using this for any real photography purposes or with pictures above 3MP in size.To transfer 1gb Sandisk II ultra CF card takes roughly 45 minutes, and kills almost all your Ipod's battery (not to mention the impact on your cameras battery for that 45 minutes).

Its a great idea, but the ipod battery is not originally engineered to support such a power supply, and does not stand up to heat...

Look elsewhere for a portable harddrive to store pictures, such as Epson P-2000.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome accessory for your photo ipod
While $30 for a little connector seems like a lot, this little device works great.Snap it onto the bottom of your photo ipod, and then attach your digital camera's usb cable and download your photos off of your memory stick and onto your ipod.You can review the pictures (although not in a slide show) and copy them to your hard drive later.This is a great setup for vacation or any time you want to take a lot of pictures and are away from your home computer and unable to copy the pictures off your memory stick.I will use it a lot! ...

Amazon.com Product Description

Developed in conjunction with the Game Audio Network Guild (GANG)--which sets the "reference standard" for video game audio--the Spherex Xbox 5.1 surround sound system delivers a sophisticated 360-degree home theater experience whether you're playing Halo 2, watching Lord of the Rings, or listening to the latest U2 release. The system features five independent audio inputs (three digital, one analog, and one USB 1.1 port), so it connects easily to your game console, DVD player, CD player, portable audio device, or computer. Sound is distributed through the five satellite speakers, each with a 3-1/2-inch woofer and 3/4-inch metal dome tweeter, and the dual-vented subwoofer with its 8-inch matrix cone woofer. The system's audio enhancements include Omnipolar technology, which rations sound (30 percent direct to 70 percent reflected) in a 360-degree dispersion pattern, so listeners can position their satellite speakers in a variety of configurations, along with MaxxBass augmentation, which extends the lower end of the frequency response to deliver deeper, more natural bass tones from both the subwoofer and the satellites themselves.

The system comes with a powerful 300-watt DDX amplifier (50 watts x 3, 25 watts x 2, and 100-watt subwoofer), which eliminates signal distortion by maintaining a digital signal flow to each speaker. And thanks to the Aureus digital signal processor, listeners can enjoy rich surround sound regardless of the format, with decoding for Dolby Digital, DTS, and Pro Logic II. Additional features include an expansion slot for future compatibility and an infrared remote control with an IR receiver. The system also carries an impressive 10-year limited warranty.

Amazon.com Product Description

If you thought your Apple iPod was just an MP3 player, you're in for a surprise: Griffin Technology's tailor-made iTalk plugs into the top of your iPod and turns your digital music player into a world-class voice recorder with literally thousands of hours of recording time.

With iTalk you can record seminars, meetings, classes, notes in your car, songs in the woods, whatever your life or imagination dictates. iTalk's built-in monaural microphone is designed to record crystal-clear audio from sources up to 100 feet away, and onboard Automatic Gain Control ensures optimal recording levels. You can even connect an external microphone directly to iTalk for greater flexibility.

iTalk's built-in speaker is great for playback of voice memos. You can also use iTalk as a mini-speaker for your iPod's music files. Play your favorite audio book through iTalk or listen to a downloaded seminar. You'll never realize how much you've missed a built-in speaker--until you have one.

There's a stereo headphone jack too, of course. It includes an iPod passthrough circuit so you can monitor your voice recording or listen to your music without removing iTalk. You can even download your recordings to play back on your computer. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Useful for voice memos
I bought the iTalk to take memos when I'm out in the field. Camera in one had, iPod in the other. I read the reviews first so knew it would be risky but it sounded ok for my uses and I got it cheap.

* Files are about 1 minute per Mb, stored as wav.
* Sound quality is understandable but not as good as AM radio.
* For a fully charged iPod, I got about 90 mins recording before the battery showed empty.

Pros

* Recording works fine, and I can dictate captions for photos as I think of them on site. Typically these are 1-2 minutes at most. I have also made an hour-long recording as a test without problems. I tried recording conversation in a cafe but it picks up too much background to be understandable.
* The best feature for photo memos is that files are time stamped, so I copy each memo to the same folder as my photos (which are also time stamped) making them easy to match up.
* iTalk can take an external mike which cuts out background white noise.
* Files are automatically sync'd to iTunes Voice Memo list and stored in the iTunes unknown artist folder. (If you have this feature set in iTunes)

Cons

* Software glitches randomly lock up the iPod under almost every condition except for the initial condition (more about this below).
* The iTalk covers the iPod lock. This is a serious design flaw given how quickly the battery drains. It means that you can't carry the iTalk connected to the iPod and easily lock the keys.
* The line that takes a mic also doubles as a line out. If headphones are connected and you try to record, the recording light shows but nothing is recorded. It creates a file but it's empty.

Hints

Prevent freezing: If the iTalk is in place when the iPod is turned on, it will often freeze. To prevent freezing, remove the iTalk before turning on the iPod every time. Under these conditions I've never had it freeze. If the iPod does sleep, to prevent freezing, remove the iTalk then insert it again (i'm not sure how often this is necessary, but I haven't had to reset the iPod since the first day).

Reset: To reset the iPod, remove the iTalk and hold down the iPod's MENU and PLAY '>||' buttons for 10 sec. I used this 5x the first day with the iTalk but haven't needed it since.

Locking: Slide a laminated card (my credit card is too thick) between the iPod and iTalk to lock, or carry the iTalk separately (annoying, but not as annoying as rebooting every time).

Saving: It's not enough to pause a recording, you need to remember to stop and save it before removing the iTalk. The MENU button will also save files.

Finding the files on PC: I have iTunes set to automatically sync files. To find the files in iTunes, look under the Voice Memos list. It's a trifle disconcerting when they disappear from one list and appear elsewhere unless you're prepared for it. On my PC, they can also be copied from
iTunes music/unknown artist/unknown album

Battery: I tried letting the battery run out while recording. It ran for ~50 minutes while the battery was showing empty then shut down with no warning. The file appears to have been saved ok.

Battery life: Check out the apple web page for battery tips (...) (I know this comment is outside the scope of iTalk, but if you use a voice recorder with the iPod, you're going to be dealing with battery issues.)

Summary

Despite the glitches, I like having a handy memo system and will keep it til something better turns up. Doesn't sound like Belkin is any better in terms of software glitches or battery life, but it looks like it would be possible to lock the iPod with the Belkin in place which would be a plus. The minus is that Belkin doesn't take an external mic.

1-0 out of 5 stars Griffin dropped the ball with the iTalk
I owned the belkin voice recorder then somehow lost it and then I saw ads for the iTalk. Since I owned the iTrip and was happy with it, I thought this was a blessing in disguise. I'm a college student and record my lectures, for the most part the Belkin voice recorder worked well but the iTalk claimed to have auto gain control etc. I'm buying another Belkin. I've recorder a week of lectures already and not a single one has come out with the iTalk. I know it's not the lecture halls because the Belkin voice recorder worked just fine. I don't know where to even begin about how bad the iTalk has worked so far. All my lectures sound like the beach. I cannot hear any voices at all. Just hours and hours of horrible background noise. It obviously does not work for lectures as claimed. Go with Belkin for once

1-0 out of 5 stars save your money
this 50 dollar (after taxes s/h etc...) piece of cheap garbage is a big waist of money. distorts even if just recording your own voice talking. griffen advertises that you can use this product to record song ideas. tried that. all i hear is a muffled distorted version of what i played. the sounds quality is horrible. i get better quality recordings on my pocked pc's built in mic. bottom line.... DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!! you will feel ripped off... i certainly do. i'd give the iTalk negative stars if i could. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it
The wireless revolution has seriously altered the way I work. It didn't seem like it was that big of a deal, to be able to work anywhere in the house on a laptop. And then I was home over Thanksgiving and tried my father's - it was incredible. So, soon after I had my own and I love it - I even ended up getting another one for my wife's laptop.

Whether it's browsing amazon.com late at night in bed, checking morning email in the kitchen while the kids run around, or being able to set up a writing desk anywhere in the house without worrying about an accessible internet port - the airport system is awesome. Even if you only have a desktop computer it's worth it - you can to put the computer in a place where there's no internet plug, without the 40 foot cord draping your wall to connect it. All in all, a wireless system may seem extravagant, but once you have one you'll wonder how you got by without it.

The airport card, along with the base station, allows you to connect several computers, even ones that don't have wireless cards in them (i.e., we have two laptops on the wireless system, and then one iMac that doesn't have an airport card is plugged directly into the base station). You can print, scan - anything - wirelessly, as long as those extra components are connected to the base station.

If you have a big house and the base station won't be centrally located, you may want to look into the antenna. I have a 2500 square foot house and the base station is at one end of it. I can get access from anywhere in the house without the extra antenna, though in one or two places it's a weak signal. My father's house, on the other hand, is over 5000 square feet and the base station is at a far end - you can't even get a signal on the other side of the house. However, he purchased the antenna and the signal is now very strong wherever you are. A warning - you should make sure your airport network is password protected, especially if you get the antenna. The signal will be broadcast through half your neighborhood and if not protected, people can get on and use your airtime, clogging up your bandwidth.

Make sure you get the right card! There's the airport extreme card and the regular airport card (I believe they are both compatible with either base station). Check Apple's website for direct compatibility between your computer and the two different cards. They are different sizes and will only fit in the right kind of slot.

One final word - I've heard from others that certain products from Net Gear or other wireless manufacturers accomplish the same thing as the airport card and base station for much cheaper. I can't attest to the validity of this, but it might be worth looking into. I'd exercise extreme caution, since if you go with Apple products it will be covered with tech support, even if it's more expensive. And putting third party hardware in your computer will likely void the warranty on your computer.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best designed WiFi.
The best design for your desk top. High quality of this drives me crazy. However, it is a little bit expensive. Anyway, I love this high tech toy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just don't buy a Dr. Bott antenna
The new base station is great. But don't be taken in by the advertising for the external antennas sold by Dr. Bott. They do nothing to extend the range of the airport and in most cases decrease signal strength. Check out the discussions on the Apple web site for more info on the external antennas.
Other than the external antenna port being a waste of time because there are no good antennas for it, the new ABS is a nice access point. And best of all, the new Windows utility for configuration is quite handy. Thankfully Apple has finally realized that the Airports aren't just "Macintosh" peripherals but are also used by many Windows users.

5-0 out of 5 stars Eat our wireless dust PCs
Apple is revolutionary. With the release of the Airport, wires were suddenly a thing from the past. No more fumbling with extension cords to reach your laptop from your desktop. Nope. Now, PCs have a wireless internet source, which makes them feel special. Well Apple has now increased it's original substantially. That's right. We Apple folks are a step ahead of the crowd. With speed like this, do we even need fast connections? You could have a 64kbps internet connection, and it would be easy to live with now. Now that it can go a longer distance, I can sit in the woods behind my house and write a novel. Great, revolutionary, spectacular. These are some of the words I can use to describe this. Buy it now!

5-0 out of 5 stars Increased bandwidth worth every penny!
I got this base station with my new 17" powerbook and I can say for certain it is well worth the money. I also have the original Airport base station that I bought when my son was born (so I can compare).

Now, the near five-fold increase in bandwidth will not effect Web surfing (unless you REALLY have a nice internet connection). But it very dramatically will increase the speed of transferring files between computers. When I got the new powerbook I moved all the data from my old laptop to the new. I hooked the old one up by ethernet and just kept the new wireless. Files were transferred at a great clip-- WAY faster than if I kept them both using the old base station. And this increase was in the mixed bandwidth mode (compatible with computers that can only use 802.11b).

As opposed to another review for the other Airport Extreme model, I see no decreased range at all-- but no real increase either. Adding the optional Antenna would presumably make it even more than the old base stations, but I have not done this. However, the speed is so much better that even bad reception does not adversely affect websurfing or file downloads. I have had mixed experience with other Wi-Fi systems (LinkSys, for instance).

As an important addition, the USB port to attach a printer or scanner is great. That way you need not buy a print server to share a printer and have the computers all be wireless at the same time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Stellar Business Class Performer
Our current office environment is a hodgepodge of desktop and network printers all of which need toner or inkjet cartridges replacements on a continual basis. Even over a short period of time this can add up to a tidy chunk of change, not to mention the storage space needed to store the disparate collection of dissimilar boxes and packages. Add to that the need to call a variable rainbow of manufactures and one could see that something needed to change. We needed a standard for desktop inkjet printing, which would combine outstanding output, low cost, easy maintenance, duplex printing, and a small footprint. Enter the HP Desktop 6122 business class printer.

According to a Hewlett Packard media releases, the HP Desktop 6122 inkjet printer offers the ability to print: "laser-quality black text plus professional color photos at up to 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi color printing on premium photo papers and 1200 x 1200-input dpi. With quick print speeds - up to 20 pages per minute in black and up to 13 pages per minute (ppm) in color - your high-volume printing will be incredibly efficient!"

The latest crop of HP desktop printers is now indistinguishable from their LaserJet counterparts in print quality when the proper weight paper is utilized; for inkjets that weight should start at 22lbs. Adding color to this functionality makes the HP Desktop 6122 a bargain at $180.00.

Features & Specifications:

One of the biggest selling points of the HP Desktop 6122 is the standard duplex module (the ability to print on both sides of the paper) which ships with the printer, and must be installed during the initial printer setup and configuration. This option is then selectable via the printer software. The duplex printing option has worked perfectly for our user base thus far.

Another feature business-class clients will find useful is the standard 150 sheet paper tray that is standard on the HP Desktop 6122, instead of the 100 sheet tray found on most Inkjet printers at this price point. In addition, an optional 250 sheet paper tray can be added to the printer, which attaches to the bottom of the unit. Also, a number of Ethernet based Jet Direct network cards can be attached to the printer including:

• HP Jetdirect 175x External USB Ethernet Print Server J6035A
• HP Jetdirect wp380 server J6061A
• HP Jetdirect 170x External Parallel Ethernet Print Server J3258BHP
• Wireless Print Server wp110 (802.11b) J6062A

For built-in Ethernet connectivity, HP offers the HP Desktop 6127. Standard connectivity is provided via IEEE 1284-Centronics parallel compatible, and version 2.0 Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports. It is worth noting that HP does not include either printer cables in the box with the printer. Specifications include:

Duty Cycle: 5,000 pages per month
Black Print Speed: Up to 20 pages a minute (Draft Mode)
Black Print Speed: Up to 5 pages a minute (Normal Mode)
Black Print Speed: Up to 1.4 pages a minute (Best Quality Mode)
Color Print Speed: Up to 13 Pages a minute (Draft Mode)

The HP Desktop 6122 printer can be attached to a Mac or PC.

Installation:

Installation of hardware and software components for the HP Desktop 6122 is easy and straight forward, with a typical installation taking less then ten minutes. HP has provided an easy to read (large print) step-by-step installation sheet for both Mac and PC users. The most difficult portion of the installation is the duplex unit which ships unattached; however the procedure for installing it is clearly outlined on the installation sheet.

The HP Desktop 6122 ships with two print cartridges, one black, one tri-color. Installation of these is easy and is again well spelled out on the installation sheet. Unlike some previous models which called for the installation of the software driver before connecting the printer to the USB port, the HP Desktop 6122 installation instructions call for the reverse; i.e. the printer should connected to the USB port first, powered on, at which time the software and drivers can be installed.

First Impressions:

I like the printer. It has a small footprint, and while not the most attractive inkjet on the market it is thus far very reliable, which is a quality I have come to expect from HP products. The black print is outstanding even on standard 20lbs laser paper, though I advise all of my clients to purchase 22-24lbs inkjet paper for the best results. Color output is nothing short of spectacular, and again with dedicated 22-24 pound inkjet paper, or even glossy photo paper, the results will speak for themselves. The colors on the page are sharp, bright, vibrant and true to life, with no streaking or running evident. And while the HP Desktop 6122 may be on the noisy side, the decibels levels are certainly acceptable and not at all distracting.

Conclusions:

Price, fast draft printing (which by the way saves a considerable amount of ink), duplex printing, and options such as a second 250 sheet paper tray, as well as the ability to add an external Jet Direct Ethernet NIC, combine to make the HP Desktop 6122 a very attractive alternative to even the most basic laser printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars This printer is groovy!
I purchased this printer a few months ago for my work, and I am still totally in love with it. It is really fast, printing 20 ppm black and 12 ppm color. The HP DeskJet 6122 is very quiet, and everything I print looks fabulous, including printing out photographs.
Perhaps my favorite thing about this printer is the automatic double-sided printing feature. I am in awe of this feature. No more manually re-feeding papers through the printer! Yay!

HP has always been my brand of choice; I've always found their products to be highly reliable, affordable, and easy to use. The 6122 is everything I expect from Hewlett Packard and more!

This printer is groovy!

4-0 out of 5 stars The true work horse with minor bugs & great performance
I had an HP Laser which drove me batty in terms of getting stuck paper unjammed. After looking at 5550 and 5650, along with Epson, Lexmark and Cannon, I bought the 6122. I rate
the printer 4 1/2**** and am in the process of buying a second.

The construction is sturdier than the 5650 and even 960.
The printer memory is amazing. I will print 40 pages. Nothing will come out at first and then they start flying. The quality,
especially for text letters at Best is like laser. Color
quality: I have a picture of my feline and it is superb.

Bugs that may be related to my CPU include having the printer go off line. This is easily fixed. I just delete the pages
in the que, reboot, reenter the pages being printed and off
we go. I have XP Home. The 6122 is quite at home with it.
Generic cartridges work fine. Have a box in front for when the printer gets going, pages fly out.

The 6122 eliminated slight negatism re: HP old laser jamming.
While not as easy to find in stores or on sale much, the
6122 is worth list price plus. I am mystified over some
of the criticisms. The 6122 is not the most space age
stylish model. It is a Clydesdale. Now I will get a new HP Amdahl or Intel CPU to go along with it. Buy the 6122
and use your worries elsewhere. This is almost as reliable as my Honda Accord.

1-0 out of 5 stars Decent Printer - LOUSY HP support
This printer seems to be a decent, reliable, no-nonsense printer. I really like the double-sided print capability. Photo printing isn't bad, but not the best I've seen, and not as good as my HP 960c printer (which was replaced by this printer when it broke after only a few months). The Photo Print software, which is otherwise very useful, has a serious disk space detection bug in it. When I called HP, they "offshored" me to India and I was unable to obtain any useful help there. For this HP deserves the lowest possible rating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Home or Office Printer
I have had three HP Deskjet printers for my office and have had great luck with all three. I did not do any comparison shopping for my work printer it was just assigned to me by my company. The HP Deskjet 6122 printer is an outstanding printer. I have had the opportunity to use it with all print modes and several paper types. It prints superb photo quality prints with photo papers. It prints business size envelopes very well. You can feed them in one at a time or place them in the lower tray for multiple envelope printing. It also works well for printing greeting cards. On draft mode it shoots out the pages with lightning speed and even in draft mode the quality of printing is pretty good. It uses high volume ink cartridges and the cartridges are reasonably priced for the amount of printing you get out of them. I like the printer so much that I bought an identical one for home use. The one I bought for home replaced three lousy color inkjet printers that came free in packages with computers a Lexmark, a Cannon and an Epson. This printer is much more expensive than the cheap or free bee printers but it evens out in the end when you look at all the wasted time and money fiddling with dinky low volume cartridges that your lucky if you can get three 8X10 photo prints out of. One day I accidentally printed a photograph on photo paper with my HP 6122 on draft mode and it looked much better than my junky Lexmark does on photo mode. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Comcast NJ users MUST call COMCAST with MAC Address
Just revising my previous review. I have been experiencing intermittent failures of internet connectivity over long stretches of constant online time like 2-8 hours. I called COMCAST and they said that since their DOCSIS 1.0 implementation they have some sort of software application that runs around the network making sure that the MAC address that is linked to their leased IP address MATCHES the MAC address in their provisioning database. Since my Cable Modem had not been provisioned through Comcast, this software application would disconnect me for about 5-10 minutes at a time. After registration of the MAC Address, Serial #, and Model number, Comcast assures me (wink!) that this will never happen again.

BTW, I had an old Motorola Comcast provided modem that was non-DOCSIS compliant and did not have a MAC address and ever since the DOCSIS 1.0 conversion I had been experiencing the same thing but the frequency has increased. Of course, I never thought about the lack of a MAC address until I got the new modem.

Anyway, still a great deal, but just make sure your cable provider has all the information that they need.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comcast NJ User - Works out of the box
I am a Comcast HSI customer in NJ for the last 3 years with a rented modem at $7/month. I unboxed this modem, made all the physical connections, and it all worked without a hitch!! The directions state that it can take a little while for the modem to acquire a signal and it did. The modem took about 10 minutes to get a signal, and didn't, so I powered cycled the box and then it attain the signal within 5 minutes after that. I did not have to call anyone to enable it with Comcast. I started using it within 20 minutes of openning the box.

The download rates appear much faster and it worked seemlessly with my Linksys 4 port Cable/DSL Router which I highly recommend as well

5-0 out of 5 stars Comment on Windows XP
I recently purchased this modem and I'm using it with ATT. My download speeds are near 2Mbps and I'm loving it. Just wanted to comment that this modem runs really well with Windows XP (what I have) contrary to what others have said here. I'm connecting via an Ethernet card (NIC), and I think most of the problems with XP are from those who are connecting via the USB port (Linksys has not yet released the USB driver for XP, hence the problems). Anyway, if you are connecting via an ethernet card, this modem is the way to go!

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Modem with AT&T

5-0 out of 5 stars Best bang for the buck
First off, in case anyone out there doesn't know, there are a few advantages to purchasing a switch rather than a hub. The main advantage, for most users anyway, is that a switch provides optimal bandwidth to all ports, whereas a hub splits available bandwidth between all active users. This means that if you are sharing a cable modem for example with others in a house/office building, connection speed will not be reduced when multiple users connected to the switch are online.

Now, as for this little baby, as soon as I saw the price I grabbed it instantly. The Linksys name had been mentioned to me favorably before, and the going price was within a few dollars of most 5-port hubs. I have been using it for 5 months now to share the cable modem in my apartment, and I can honestly say I have never had a single difficulty. Setup was quick and easy, I was online in less than 5 minutes. The whole device is smaller than most alarm clocks, so storage is hardly an issue. Overall, this is a best buy hands down, anyone out there who needs inexpensive networking equipment, this is the way to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the money!
Thinking of setting up a network? Wish yours would run faster? If so, this is the product for you. Installation is simple. If you can plug a network card into your pci slot you can have your network up and running in minutes. (If you dont know how to plug in a network card, it will take about 5 extra minutes) Anyway, Don't buy a hub. A switch is full duplex meaning it can send and recieve data at the same time. Also with a hub, all ports share the bandwith. ie a 5 port 100m hub w/ all five ports being used = 20m per port. while a switch runs 100m per port, reguardless of how many ports are being used.. And in full duplex mode 200m per port. Also if your looking for computer y on a hub, it must check each port until computer y is found. This switch will know that computer y is on port 4, so you will go right to it, and save time. all n all a great product, as are all linksys products...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Little Switch - Does What it's Designed For!
This switch does exactly what it's designed for, sharing an Ethernet connnection. Don't expect to be able to configure VLANs, multilayer switching, VLAN trunks, load balancing, etc. This does not have any routing, NAT, or firewall capabilities. You would use this switch when you already have a router between your internal network and the Internet, and you need additional Ethernet ports. This gives you a full duplex Ethernet connection at wired speed, and it delivers! Perfect for the home office/LAN or for technicians needing extra Etherenet ports for their workbench, as this is what I use mine for. Thanks for reading! Hope this helps!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect little unit
I had been using a Linksys router for a few years before buying this switch. Then I changed to a new DSL provider (Frontiernet) whose modem is also a router, so I picked up this switch to split my connection to various computers in my home (having two routers on Frontiernet caused problems with TCP port forwarding). First, I was surprised by the compact size of the switch. I hooked it up and it was good to go - a slick connection and no messing around. It is a perfect companion to the Speedstream 5200 DSL modem, and probably many others.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good...but not without problems
I purchased my WGT624 v2 from amazon.com. As soon as I pulled it out of the box it was constantly rebooting (dropping me off the internet both wired and wireless). I was able to fix it though and I will tell you how and what happened. When I had this problem out of the box, I called for netgears free 90 day support. They were horrible! They answered the phone without a long wait, but they knew very little about this product. They gave me an RMA and I received the new router. Unpakced the replacement and same problem. Updated firmward to latest, and followed all the troubleshooting on the netgear site and I still coudln't fix it. Just when I was ready to return it to amazon I found out how to fix the problem. There is a setting on the router for preamable and it is set to auto by default. Auto is supposed to detect if the card(s) support short preamable (short is usually only useful when there is a lot of interference from other wireless devices in and around the home and most cards don't even support it). I changed the setting from auto to long and that fixed the reboot problems. I have gone around to as many forums as possible to try and post the solution so that others can cure themselves of this problem. It works great now that I found out what the problem was. This is not a router for a novice computer user. If you are a novice I suggest you get a linksys product. This netgear has a lot of features for the price though, and this is just a stupid problem with the firmware.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality Hardware
I own the MR814v2 802.11b router. That is a very stable product, so I figured since I had a WG311 wireless card in my desktop I'd buy another Netgear router for 802.11g. Many of the reviews here were favorable, so I bought on the basis of that.

This product is simply not stable, at least for me. It has to be rebooted constantly. For sure it cannot hold a wireless connection more than 24 hours. I upgraded to the latest firmware, which at the time of writing is 4.1.11. No help whatsoever. I checked on-line, and sure enough many many people have reported similar problems with it (broadbandreports.com). I tried disabling the 108Mb features, but that also didn't help.

So in the end, I'm just returning it after a frustrating weekend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Router
Set up easy. Read all reviews, and bought with some reservations as several negative reviews indicated problems. However, I believe Netgear has them fixed with the version shipping now. Excellent out of box set up, configured both WEP and WAP, settled on using WEP. Use a Netgear 511 wireless card and get 54MBPS thoughout house, about 24-48 outside. Distance of 50+ feet. I have an old house, lathe and plaster walls, hardwood construction and still great reception. Also, have the router in the basement, between an old brick chimney and the furnace. Still, great reception. Recommend!

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad bad bad - stay away from this one!!!!
I bought this in the hope of setting up a fast network, but this is one worthless piece from Netgear. The router is totally incapable of holding a connection up to both wired and wireless connections on the network. I have v2 HW, and have tried 3 different firmwares. I am convinced that the only people who are happy with this one are the ones that turn their computer off after reuse. If you plan on leaving computers on forget this one.

Netgear's service is even worse. They finally agreed that this is a problem with the router, and that its not a first or uncommon thing for the router. The WGT634U is equally bad. The problems seem to stem from 108Mbps not being a stable standard yet. I would get a 54G router for now, and revisit 108 in a year or so when such issues may just be behind. For now I am returning this and if Netgear does not agree to give me another product in return or my money back, i am never coming back to their products again either.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy setup, good performance, no problems
I purchased the WGT624 and the WG511T as a pair. Installation was easy (followed the manual) and performance is obviously better than the 802.11b router/WAP this replaced. After getting everything to work I performed the autoupdate for the WGT624 with no problems. As expected, I don't get 100mbps performance, but with notebook in the same room as WAP I get solid 45mbps file transfers. I use this router in combination with some remote 802.11b WAPs. I configured two profiles for the WG511T (11b only and superG only)and apply the appropriate profile for the WAP I want - works great.
Also, the range is better than with my older 11b system.

I clearly haven't experienced the problems others have expressed - I'm completely satisfied with these products. ... Read more
