Yamaha YHT-S401 Home Theater Package Review

  I imagine most people know what a sound bar is because of the name. But what isn’t so well-known is that there’s varied technologies being used in those now on the market -- all the same, they aren’t! So I have high hopes for...

D-Link DIR-645 Whole-Home Router 1000 Review

A wireless router has one job -- to provide a signal that the “clients” (i.e., laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.) can pick up within a reasonable distance. And for that signal to be stable and consistent. By its very nature, ...

Sanus Furniture Mount System FMS01-B1 Review

One of the benefits of the advent of flat-panel TVs is that you can attach them to walls. This not only creates that much-vaunted "video window" that SciFi has touted for years -- along with adding a striking decor touch -- but...

Dynamic Mounting Down and Out Flatscreen TV Mount Review

As much as flatscreen TVs have become ubiquitous, so has the mount.  The result?  Mounts that offer limited functionality and at best articulate the position of the screen from left to right or at a very slight angle up and dow...

Behringer U-Phono UFO202 Review

The “home theater” has evolved from “just” a TV -- to including a VCR, followed by a DVD player and now Blu-ray player. But for all the disc-happy folks out there getting their content on optical discs, there’s still plenty of ...

Nyrius High Definition Digital Wireless Audio/Video Sender Review

USB video emitters are all the fad these days, but as I've said in the past that's really all they are, a fad. And a bad one at that. Sending video, especially HD video, over a USB-connection is just asking for a world of pain,...

ViewSonic VT2430 24-inch 1080p LCD TV Review

Say the name “Viewsonic” to most people, and they’ll likely respond with some variation of “they make monitors.” That the company also makes HDTVs, not so much. But the technologies that make for a quality LCD monitor can certa...

Sanus Basic Series BFV546 Audio Video Stand Review

Have you noticed how people compromise on the furniture they use for their “home theater.” You can't tell me that IKEA doesn't love the fact that they’re able to sell all those  cheap stands and tables for use in holding what a...

LG SMART Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System BH9420PW Review

In the beginning the consumer electronics manufacturers created the Home Theater in a Box (HTIB). And it was bad. Real bad. A bunch of cheap speakers tied into a cheap amplifier that could be sold as a cheap way to get louder v...

VIZIO VX32L LCD HDTV20A Review

VIZIO HDTV's enjoy a Dr.Jekyl/Mr. Hyde-type existence. On one hand, you can get a high-end HDTV from the brand with all the bells and whistles, while at the other end there are basic models that still provide the main feature a...

BenQ Joybee GP2 Mini Projector Review

You usually don’t expect a front projector to come in a box more suitable for a ream of printing paper. And yes I am “old school” in that I pretty much automatically expect a lot of packaging because of all the “delicate” compo...

Mohu Bounce WiFi Enhancer Review

Wireless home networks came into being as much for their convenience as their usefulness: running cables along carpeting and through holes in walls weren't so appealing. The issue of devices that could access the Internet back ...
