Kenwood Here2Everywhere System-H2EC SIRIUS Radio Receiver with Car Kit

At the time of this review, I don't think there's a better plug-n-play in this price range. I bought it from the Sirius directly for $129. I found a coupon on the internet that knocked $40 off instantly. Plus a $50 mail-in-rebate - total price $39. So,...

Daewoo DS700

I would steer clear of this one. It worked OK at first then started losing channels on a regular basis and then eventually decided not to turn on. Another call to the infamous 'daewoo customer helpline' resulted in the bored employee telling me that a...

OK, I use this product for watching netflix on my TV. The quality is pretty good, depends on the DVD or Stream most of the time, but no worse than my non HD Dvd plays on my non HD tv and no worse than the picture on my laptop, taking into account that...
