Like most people, in the past I've bought consumer grade from CISCO (formerly LinkSys), Netgear, D-Link, etc. I've grown increasingly dissatisfied with these as time goes by. I've run across Luxul networking products in several pro-installations so when I got the chance to try them for myself, I jumped at the chance.

A Dynamic 'Convertible' Home Theater on a Shoe-String Budget

I found myself at the ripe old age of 61, sitting in a cabin in Wisconsin, wondering how to incorporate a dedicated home theater into an open living-dining-kitchen area.

Review - IAV LightSpeakers - Wireless Multi Room Audio System

Since HomeToys.com began over 15 years ago we have always had a passion for products we feel are innovative, creative and are helping move this AV industry forward. When I saw the press release for the launch of the IAV LightSpeaker come across my email a few months back I was intrigued.

Outdoor Power Over Ethernet (PoE) A Fair Weather Friend

Anyone on a network can share content and applications with any coworker anywhere in the world on an interactive basis.
