  • Mr. Litwin "living dangerously" - The Best Plex Client Appliance for your TVWithout repeating what everyone has said here, I will speak for Roku's support of the Plex media streaming software which is a free Roku channel. If you have never heard of it, it is a fantastic solution that allows you to use Roku (as well as all your portable devices and remote computers, including ones on the internet-at-large) to stream all of the movies on your computer, regardless of the format. On Roku, you can browse the movie collection on your computer using a slick interface and watch it in full resolution. (This is only if you have a fast connection like a home wireless network, and you need to configure it to do this- an easy settings change.) If your computer can play it, so can your Roku. The key to this is because all the transcoding of the video file happens on your computer so all Roku has to do is play the video stream. The result is that you can easily fast-forward and rewind, as well and have the jump-back feature like the TiVo has. This was the primary reason that I bought the Roku as it is a lot easier to use than trying to connect your computer directly to your TV and muddling about with computer controls to watch movies. The Plex interface on Roku is easy to use and very slick. It does nice things like look up movie data so you have the cover art, theme music, and movie info for you to peruse as you are browsing your library. Finally, there is the "Plex it!" feature which you can use with your computer's browser, so that when you find a video on the internet on your computer, you want to queue it up for later to watch on your TV, and it will appear in your movie queue in Plex on Roku, regardless of the video format! This also gets around the one annoying thing about Roku and that it doesn't have a native YouTube channel for some reason.
  • Helen McMonagle - Love this!I'm a sucker for the info commercials and have been fooled into buying into 'cream schemes', with doctors and melons and stuff, that rob your bank account on a monthly basis and don't work. After watching this on TV for a while and going through the reviews, I decided to give it a go. It was a 30 day trial, so I had nothing to lose. If it didn't work or I had any problems, I'd just send it back.

    I've had it for about 6 weeks now and I'm loving it. Noticeable differences: the skin around my eyes feels smooth and lines are disappearing. After one session, my neck is smooth. I'm still tackling the smile lines, but definitely seeing a difference.

    When I got it, I was using it every night, but now it's 2 or maybe 3 nights a week. I spend about 30 mins in total, while I'm watching TV.

    Problems that I'm noticing from other reviewers:

    -It's not holding a charge. I've never had this happen to me and if it did, I would just send it back. I'm a terrible one for not reading instruction manuals, and just noticing that you're not supposed to put it back into the unit while it's still hot, not leave it charging while not in use, etc. I had been dong all of the above and leaving it charging for days on end, so have stopped doing that and just switching it on whenever I'm going to use it to prolong the battery life.

    -The results are only temporary: aren't all results just temporary, including Botox? If I can achieve these temporary results with this, then it's well worth sitting for 30 mins a few times a week.

    I think it's just helping to keep the face toned. It's like every other area of our body, we keep on exercising to stay toned. I wouldn't call it exercising right enough, but determined to keep it up because the results have been well worth it!
