5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Satisfied User (nVideon Tel-Lynx Guardian BT), July 3, 2016
To say that I am thrilled with this purchase (direct from manufacturer) would be a total understatement. I have had the Guardian BT installed for slightly over a month and it has totally stopped the robocalls, political calls and unsolicited sales calls. At the same time my authorized callers can call in without disruption. In the month of June 2016 alone, it blocked 81 unwanted calls. That is 81 times this past month that the phone DID NOT ring. I might add for clarification, several of those 81 calls were repeat callers (robocalls) but the phone never rang for them. Talk about a quiet house...my wife and I are both loving it.

The unit can be as 'Plug and Play' or 'Customized' as much as you want to get into it. For those that do not want to mess with programming, there is a simple setup that can be followed. For those that want to dig into the data to manually manage the phone book of callers, call waiting, answering machine functions and many other features, the tools for doing that are available. The phone book is easily managed with Microsoft Excel (part of Microsoft Office) if you are familiar with CSV worksheets. There are many other spreadsheet programs which might be used, but I can only speak for Excel. There are no black lists or white lists, unless you want to make your own. Instead, first time callers (unless pre-authorized in your phone book) have a brief questioning which robo-callers cannot perform. The limit on how many callers can be authorized or blocked is almost endless, limited only by the file size your computer will tolerate before running out of disk space. In other words, don't worry about it.

Currently, the User Guide is in Preliminary mode. There are so many features to this unit, that getting everything in nice neat order is a job in itself. However, there is absolutely fantastic technical support offered (if needed) by email, with almost immediate email response to questions or problem solving.

In closing, I will say that I have absolutely no connection to this company but love their product. It is worth every penny spent and I have already recommended it to several people and will continue to recommend it to everyone with the problem of robocalls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic little alarm clock, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fantastic little alarm clock. With the satellite (atomic) time adjustment, it is dead-on in accuracy. Alarm beeps once; if not immediately reset, it then beeps twice. If not reset it beeps 4 times, then assumes you are dead to the world and gets nearly constant. Beep is not adjustable but loud enough to wake you up. The clock is strictly battery operated. There is mention of an AC power connector in the instructions (single sheet of paper) but there is NOT an AC adapter or cable supplied. Clock has the ability to have a night-light turned on if needed, but it draws its' power from the clock batteries, thus shortening the life of them, if the night light is used.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mouse works great, but I personally do not like what they ..., March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased as a replacement mouse for a previously used (and old) wireless mouse (M15). Mouse works great, but I personally do not like what they did with the scroll wheel. Much to free moving, making it difficult to be exact, even when on 1 line per click.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement for original Acceleration Disc, March 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased as a replacement (expensive replacement) for the disc owned with FSX Gold (with Acceleration). Original Acceleration disc damaged by the plastic software box that Microsoft used. The hub hole cracked into the data area making the disc defective. Suggest that you NOT use the center hub holder in your case. Place the disc between layers of the booklet to protect it.

Nice coarse webbing for drainage on bonsai pots. Love the fact that I can cut to the size I want and need and not restricted by some little square that someone else determined should work.
