VIZIO E420i-B0 42-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED HDTV


I bought this vizio tv after thoroughly looking online for the best picture for my limited budget. After seeing the difference in person between a standard led tv and this full array led tv, I was sold. Gaming on this tv looks amazingly smooth, bright, and crystal clear. Didn’t need to adjust any of the picture settings either, the gaming setting gives me a picture quality that I feel is more than sufficient. The only gripe I have against this tv is that the stand is flimsier than older vizio models that I’ve seen and when I turn the tv (which I do frequently) I’m afraid that it’s eventually going to wear out and break. If you’re looking for a great quality picture without spending a lot of money, I highly recommend this tv.

I’ve had the tv for almost a month now and I’m still just as happy with it as I was the first day I got it. There is a light indicator on the tv to let you know that the tv is on, it’s disabled by default but I enabled it in the TVs settings. As far as gaming lag goes, I’ve had the picture set to gaming mode and haven’t noticed any at all. I’ve been playing call of duty ghost on the ps4 on this tv a lot, and it’s performed beyond my expectations. Also I read a review that states that the smart feature is slow to start up this is both true and false. The tv doesn’t maintain a constant connection to the internet, when you turn the tv off, the internet connection is off. I’ve noticed that if I try accessing one of the apps such as netflix immediately after I turned the tv on, it takes a while for it to connect. If I turn the tv on, wait a few seconds for it to connect to my router and then try accessing netflix, the app starts very quickly.

I’ve only just hooked up this printer, so I can’t comment on longevity, etc. I bought it primarily as a replacement for an old Sharp copier that I had, but the Canon is also connected as a backup printer.

As a printer, it is very fast and the print quality seems to be excellent, but as a copier, it has one deficiency: the glass size is A4, which is just slightly larger than letter size. The old copier had a much larger glass area, so it was possible to reduce some oversize documents to fit on letter size. This copier is somewhat crippled in that area.

Amazon has dropped the price on this printer by about $50 in just the last few days, so it’s a great value for a home office. It’s a good size, is fairly lightweight (at least in comparison with what I had before), and the set-up instructions are the best I’ve seen. I would not recommend this for a business, as it does not have a document feeder, besides the limited glass size.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?) This unit was tested on a Windows 7 Home Premium desktop workstation.


Yes, this does have a small footprint, but note the extra 6 inches of height and 3 inches of depth needed when trays are extended for printing. Setup was easy, though if you know what you’re doing, I recommend connecting the printer to your wireless network BEFORE you install the software on CD to your PC - you can then just say “printer is already on network” when prompted during installation. I tested ALL advertised features (including AirPrint and send and receiving FAX) and was able to get them all working to varying degrees. Per page printing costs are fairly standard for an inkjet (7-10 cents per page black and white; 20-25 cents for color including nicer photo paper). Speed is “quick” and not “super fast.” Big batch jobs will still require a laser printer. To keep the size of this review reasonable, I’ll leave it to other reviews to supply more specifics other than scanning features.


Note that there is a less expensive version of this printer, the Epson WorkForce WF-2530 which is virtually identical to the WF-2540 being reviewed here. The one major difference in the scanning features, discussed below, is that the cheaper WF-2530 does not have an external USB interface. This means that the WF-2530 must be attached to a computer by wifi or USB cable in order to scan. Otherwise, other than the extra interface option for an ethernet connection and a slightly different control display on the WF-2540 being reviewed here, it appears to be identical in size, speed, and function.

That being said, one of the best features of this all-in-One (WF-2540) is that it does have that external USB port. This actually allows the unit to be a stand-alone, non-attached, non-networked scanning station. If your workstation breaks, your network goes down, or you run out of ink, you can still scan documents to a USB drive and take them elsewhere to print, email, or whatever. As well, you can use as a stand-alone photocopier.

The second best feature for scanning is the automatic document feeder (ADF). It can hold only 30 pages, and was a little finicky when I used thicker source paper to scan. Still, ADF’s are a great feature for an inexpensive all-in-one unit like this. Note that if you scan directly from the control panel of the unit, your only choices are 200, 300, and 600 dpi resolution, and either PDF or jpeg formats only. The PDF is NOT searchable with no default of optical character recognition (OCR). The included ABBYY software cannot convert non-searchable PDFs to searchable (OCRed) PDFs. If you save scans as jpeg images the included ABBYY software CAN load and convert jpegs to searchable PDFs.

Using the workstation as a stand-alone scanner, I was able to create and store to attached USB drive a 5 page pdf document scanned at 200 dpi in color mode in 160 seconds (32 seconds/page). The same test document scanned at 600 dpi in color mode took 260 seconds (52 seconds/page). Rule of thumb would be 30-60 seconds per page depending on resolution.

Using the included EPSON Scan software, which runs on your computer, you can choose from a larger number of options than the limited ones from the control panel of the printer. E.g., you can set resolution from 60-9200 dpi, choose color smoothing, set to scan in gray scale, etc..

Scanning speed with a wireless connection varied greatly depending upon how far the WF-2540 is from your wifi router - wifi connection speed and strength is critical. Using the same 5 page document and the EPSON Scan software with the WF-2540 in wireless mode, I needed 20 minutes to produce a document when the unit was 50 feet away from my wifi router. Moving the WF-2540 to about 20 feet away, the same job took about 8 minutes. Connected with a USB cable to my PC, the same job took about 6 minutes. It was STILL much slower than the direct scan to attached USB device.

Rule: scanning and creating documents via wifi WILL be slower, and with a weaker wifi connection can be unusably slow. Consider how far your WF-2540 will be from your wifi router.

I give this 5 stars for being an excellent small office solution with a lot of built in flexibility (especially the USB scan and store capability). Connect by ethernet, wifi network, USB cable, or use as a stand-alone scan, copy or fax unit and you’re ready to go.

I bought this computer for my granddaughter so she could practice school work at home. That being said I wasn’t looking for a high end desktop or laptop. The space where it’s set up is limited so it had to be compact. This all-in one is perfect for a smaller desk top while retaining a good size screen. The AMD processor is perfect for basic computer chores. It runs educational programs easily. Plays movie disks (except Blu-ray) effortlessly. Surfs the web with no problem and plays streamed movies on Netflix with no problems. I’ve connected to the internet both with the ethernet lan and Wi-Fi connections available with the 18-5010. The picture quality is very good, the sound from the built in speakers good and it has a good build quality. Bear in mind this is not a power house but for the price you get a nice every day one piece desktop. And it looks good. I gave it five stars because it is perfect for what I wanted it for. Not as fast as my I3 laptop or I5 desktop but fast enough to handle everyday computing at a great price.

This is an excellent value - great condition, worked perfectly. Has a clean Windows install with nothing else cluttering things up. Comes with both 32 and 64 bit Windows disks. One thing I did find out after banging my head against the wall for a while - you need to register the Windows license online in addition to keying in the license code initially, otherwise some programs (notably MS Office) won’t install but won’t tell you why. Great specs for this price, shipped fast, well packed - very happy with it.

I have just switched back to a Mac after years of using a PC. The difference is night and day. The Mac is so much easier to use (although it took me a short while to get the hang of it), and has many more options and abilities. I am an artist, so I had to switch all my art files from PC to the Mac. It was easy to do and the Mac is so much more art friendly. I have to write quite a lot of documents, so I needed the Mac to handle that too, and it does.
I happen to own an iPhone and iPad Air as well. My son set my iPad Air (he’s more tech savvy than me) to show and act as my Mac’s desktop. So when I am away from my Mac, I can use the iPad as my computer and work with it as if I had a mini desktop! All in all I wouldn’t go back to PC if you paid me. I love it.

Epson V11H584220 PowerLite Home Cinema 500 Silver Edition SVGA 2600 Lumens HDMI Projector (White)


Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?) I’ve been using this projector for about a month now, and I found both ‘pros and cons,’ the term that applies to any kind of items. So here’s my review.
First, I will begin with the pros. This projector is very bright. It was too bright out of the box, so I had to reduce the brightness. I set this projector up in a small room and approximately 20 feet away from the screen; I could enjoy 60”~70” screen size (big enough for me for now, but I don’t see any problem making this bigger up to 300” considering how powerful the bulb is). The colors were overall accurate out of the box, but I needed to do some calibration (it was a bit saturated with high contrast, in my opinion, and this can be personal preference; I like soft and warm tones). This projector has 5 different input methods (S-Video, VGA, RCA, USB, and HDMI) and having an HDMI port is an excellent option. Using HDMI port, it’s just easy and simple to connect many kinds of devices. I tried Roku, Apple TV, mobile devices, and my computers (Mac, requires thunderbolt to HDMI cable or adapter), and they all worked great without any issues or going through complicated settings. I just plugged it, and it worked.
So I enjoyed TV shows and movies on a huge screen; now my 55” TV screen looks small. I was surprised how quickly human eyes can be spoiled and fooled by the bigger screen sizes.

Now here are some cons that can be, again, personal preferences.
The max resolution of this projector is not 720P. So this is not a ‘HD’ HD projector with 720P or 1080P resolution, but close to it. Because this is not a 720P, that doesn’t mean this is garbage. I actually think the outputted image quality is wonderful considering 800x600. The moving images on screen may not be as sharp as 720P, but I like smooth motion better. Also, this is still higher resolution than what regular DVD movie can produce (by vertical line,) the image quality still looks great on a big screen. And because this isn’t a 720P (or 1080P), that doesn’t mean I can’t connect my Roku box or Apple TV. Both devices work great with this projector, and I am really enjoying movies with the huge screen size.

One thing I really wished this projector had is audio out option. Missing an audio out is not the end of the world, but if it had one, movie watching life could have been easier. Luckily, Roku has audio/video out port; I can connect to an external speaker for better and louder sound, and for the Apple TV, I can airplay audio only to my airplay enabled speaker. Problem solved.
The rest is minor and universal cons for most of the home/office projector that this one is not excluded. The fan noise can be noisy if used in a small quiet room; for a backyard movie night, this not an issue. High power consumption: even though the Amazon description shows energy star, in my opinion, this device consumes too much power. For a regular setting, it was 250 watts/h, and for the eco setting, it was 200 watts/h. For an occasional movie night, it’s fine. But, here’s some numbers for a quick comparison. My 55” LED TV (eco mode) consumes less than 90 watts/h and a CFL bulb in my room consumes 17 watts/h. I personally think 200 watts/h is too much, but then again, my Dell DLP projector in the office consumes the same amount of electricity (it measured 250 watts/h at regular mode).

Overall, this is a great option for a budget home theater. The image quality is unexpectedly better and the overall built quality is solid (except the included carrying bag made with really cheap material). It is easy and simple to use including OSD menus. Having an HDMI port is a blessing because I can connect many different current digital devices. If you think the price of HD projectors doesn’t justify your hard earned money, then this one can be a good choice.

AAXA P4 P4X Pico Projector, 95 Lumens, Pocket Size, Li-Ion Battery, HDMI, Media Player, 15,000 Hour LED, DLP Projector


I purchased this projector in Oct 2011 directly from Aaxa. I am a teacher working in two schools and I use this projector nearly every day. I connect my iPhone 4 and iPad 2 to it and also play video files from the internal drive or a flash drive, mostly successfully. The specs are the best in this category at the moment, and the design is good. There are a few details that other reviewers have not mentioned, however:

* The fan noise is more than noticeable. It’s actually a little annoying.
* The power button is situated such that the P4 can be switched on in a crowded bag pretty easily.
* The buttons are not very responsive. My feeling is that this is more of a system software issue than a purely hardware issue. Button clicks frequently get no response or a delayed response. I feel like the system software is not quite ready for prime-time.
* While it’s impressive that they included any sort of internal speaker, it’s only usable in a very quiet environment and then really only for speech. There’s really no point at all to listening to any sort of music track with it. If you plan on using headphones, then you’re fine, but if you need to run a cable to a pair of external speakers then you’re losing the cable-free benefit of a battery-powered device. If you don’t mind plugging it in for power then you might as well get a brighter pico projector.
* The P4 does NOT mount properly on any external computer, and I’ve tried several Mac and Windows machines. The manual says very clearly that it should be able to do this. When connected via USB, it might mount for just a moment, but then it will immediately unmount or produce some kind of error message. I’ve had absolutely no success transferring files directly from a computer to the P4. When I contacted their support staff about this, I was told that I should put my files on a flash drive, and then move them from the flash drive to the P4. This is very disappointing and inconvenient. (Are other users having this problem? I’d like to know.)
* Transferring files from a flash drive involves going into Windows CE, which requires the additional purchase of the little USB keyboard. The keyboard is pretty cool, but it’s somewhat expensive, and because it’s so small, it’s awkward to use.
* When copying files, I’ve frequently had weird anomalies where the P4 seems to think there are two copies of the file, with slightly different directory paths, and it gives me error messages that it is unable to find the second file. Irritating!
* Video playback always starts with the first video in your directory, requiring you to stop playback, go back to your directory listing, and select the file you want.
* Although the internal flash drive is 2 gigs, the operating system takes up a great deal of that, so there isn’t more than a couple hundred megs onboard, and that’s not much room for decent-quality video. I have not tried using an SD card.
* The color reproduction, even on a flawless white wall in a dark room, is mediocre at best. There are a few settings to adjust the color, most of which are totally unusable. My expectations were not that high, but I wouldn’t want yours to be, either.
* The P4 doesn’t sync as readily via VGA as you’d expect. If your cable gets jerked out, you can’t just plug it back in. You’ll probably have to manually re-sync it or possibly restart the P4.
* The battery does not last more than 70 minutes.

None of these issues are substantial enough for me to return the unit or recommend against buying it, but they might matter to you, depending on your planned use. The basic utility of the P4 is massive, although the shortcomings are constantly annoying. I look forward to future units from Aaxa, where we’ll hopefully get 120+ lumens (laser driven?) from a longer-lasting battery, better and more adjustable color, and perhaps some kind of wireless a/v streaming. But for now, this is a very handy and useful device.
