Does the Nvidia Shield TV work well as a home theater device? Almost.

+Robert McMillan  I honestly can't say Verizon's coverage can't be beat. I still had a phone on their network for two months before firing them and compared side by side with t-mobile.  T-mobile had more bars in more places and even had voice coverage in the mountains where Verizon didn't. And that was on their own network, not roaming on AT&T.  I tried over and over to make a call on the verizon phone and it failed but I had a relatively strong tmobile signal in a rural mountainous area.  And their data is always much faster. Unlike with Verizon, TMO the speedtests you do with the OOkla app don't count towards your high speed data allowance so I ran up tons of GB on those. But I guess it depends on where you are so your mileage may vary.

I wasn't expecting much when I switched to them which is why I started out a trial two months in advance and I'm really very happy. I've never had 100+mbps speeds in my life, let alone on a cell phone and that is indoors.  I don't miss Verizon and their lying customer service reps and their rip off prices and complicated plans one iota.  This all started for me when I walked into a Verizon company owned store because I wanted to buy a new phone outright because my samsung galaxy was out of memory. They would not sell me a phone outright without putting it on my account and charging me a fee.  I said T-mobile doesn't charge that fee. The rep literally showed me the door and said, "there's the door." I went across the street and the rest is history.

They're not going to give you a customer loyalty discount because they just don't give a damn.  There's enough people like Lon who have absolutely no other choice but to pay their ripoff prices and deal with their lies and unethical business practices so that's why.  It's a far cry from the Verizon I remember 15 years ago but I guess everything is subject to change without notice.  T-mobile is no exception to that either. Today it was announced they're now number 3 passing Sprint in subscribers so if you're lucky enough to have tmobile and are happy with it like I am, enjoy it while it lasts.

Buffalo is making routers with DD-WRT preinstalled. But they cost more than their non-DDWRT twins:

+Lon Seidman Look what I found, but they went with HDMI 1.4 so it will do 4K Movies, but not so good for gaming and I don't know why they chose this route when they could have sold out by using HDMI 2.0 like the Ugoos or the Nagrace TV Box... Even the Amlogic S802 or the M802 was married with the Mali-450 can play 4K, but the RK3288 was married to the Mali-T764 GPU which is much more powerful... https://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_Chromebook_C201/feature/

We've used them quite a bit for banners, table throws, and a number of other products. They are fast, responsive, and local.
