    What service van are you most happy with?

    I would look into the new Chrysler Pacifica. The "experts" are very impressed with it at the Auto shows. My 2003 Chrysler Town and Country is still going strong, and still has the original trans. I just turned 200,000 miles about a week ago.

    Let's Talk Headphones

    I bought the Sennheiser HD598 on Black Friday for $95. Excellent sound and super roomy/comfy. The best I've found under $50 are the Koss KSC75. I've got 2 of those.

    I've been on a Stephen King binge.

    I read a lot of his books, and the worst one is Carrie. Very boring. The movie is much better.

    Problem playing some blurays on Panasonic player.

    Have you checked to make sure the player has the latest firmware installed? If not, that's the first thing I would do.

    Can anyone recommend a good modem/router combo unit ?

    Do you mean the Zoom 5363? It's on the approved list, and it's 100 Mbps. Will that work well streaming 4k video? I assumed I need 300 Mbps for 4k video. Is that right?

    Can anyone recommend a good modem/router combo unit ?

    Thanks, but those are modems only. And they are not on the approved list in the link above.

    Can anyone recommend a good modem/router combo unit ?

    We do not want a separate router and modem. We also want it to be able to stream 4k video in the future. What specs should we look for? This will be used with TWC(EarthLink) broadband internet. The link below lists their approved modem/router combo units...

    Looking for an external hard drive for a Mac laptop

    Thanks. The Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2 TB is highly rated. Does anyone have any personal knowledge of that one?

    a reciever for my garage? durability? temp concerns?

    I don't know about the current receivers, but I have had a cheap Marantz stereo receiver in my unheated garage for about 20 years with no problems. And I'm sure the winters here are even colder than by you.
