HP Jetdirect 2101nw 802.11g Wireless External Prin&hellip by HP
One of the most pointless products I've ever purchased in haste. I wanted to buy a print server. I used to have a Belkin one which gave up on me only after a couple of years' use. When I got this product I realised its not a print server in real sense but one that needs its USB dongle plugged into a PC and for others to share this print server the PC where the dongle is plugged in, should be always switched on and the virtual printer shared with everyone on the network.

The apps load much faster, switching to home screen is very quick and I love the familiar Sony PlayStation type menu system. There are many more apps on the Sony compared to LG. The online content is much more interesting and engaging. The picture quality of BluRay is good although I should say it would be a challenge to beat LGs clarity. The surround sound is also respectable with decent set of connectivity… Read more
