1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed so far!, November 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fire TV Stick (Electronics)
We stream video throughout our house without problem and we wanted the Fire Stick to make it easier to access Amazon Prime content. I've been disappointed so far. The device drops wifi connection repeatedly. It actually performs worse (video quality and dropped connection) than the built-in Amazon streaming on the Sony TV to which it is connected.

This is a great product. Had a few specks of dust at first. Used the sticky tape to carefully remove the specks. Bubble free and a very good fit. Minimal fingerprints.

Great IPhone 6 plus mount for my Prius V!! Does not block my main auto screen and holds the iPhone very securely. Best mount holder I've found!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really like this scanner!, April 10, 2014

Scanner works great! Solid build and quality. Output quality is excellent. I especially like that I can email myself a scanned document without having to boot my computer! Scanning speed is plenty fast for what I require (every day home scanning tasks). Zippy quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tasting coffee!, April 6, 2014
First, we've tried Keurig, Nespresso, and a super automatic espresso maker. I really like the Virtuo. The Keurig produces fairly weak and flat tasting coffee. It's drinkable, but bland. The super automatic doesn't produce a decent full size coffee unless you want an Americano. And, the espresso is still pretty mediocre. The new Virtuo produces a very nice tasting espresso AND a very nice strong cup of coffee. None of these options produces an espresso that compete with a professionally produced shot from a real high-end machine. But, the Virtuo tastes really good and produces the best quality product of any of these home options.

The downside is that there is still only a small selection of pods. Hopefully, there will be more soon. However, the ones that ARE available are quite good. For instance, the Stormio blend produces a very strong cup of coffee that doesn't have off flavors. Good aroma and good flavor. I prefer, the 2nd darkest coffee, Altissio. They also produce a nice half caff coffee capsule and a decaf. Currently only one decaf option for espresso. In my opinion the espresso produced with this machine is superior to the original Nespresso.

No, the crema isn't "real crema" as a few people have pointed out, but it serves the same purpose and you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference...except the Virtuo produces far more of it than in a bistro produced espresso. I like it.
Yes, could be hotter, but it is sufficient for me.

The real question for this machine will be durability. It's technically a more complex machine than the original Nespresso since it incorporates a centrifuge. However, we've had horrible luck with durability of saeco super espresso machines which are more expensive (up front) than the Virtuo and still produces a mediocre pour. Of course, you'll pay more for pods overtime. BTW, buy the pods from Nespresso..the ones listed on Amazon are significantly over-priced. I'll update periodically with reports.

So far I've tried Feathers, Astras, Sharks and Wilkinson. Of course, everyone is different, but these were really rough on my face. I won't be using them again. I tried shaving with them twice. I have a very thick, wirey beard. So far I'll stick with Feathers and Astras.
