Which product lines?

The modules are fair.  They're cheap and /mostly/ reliable.  As reliable as
the underlying technologies are.  The wall switches stink.  They work but
their switch action is really cheesy.  The wireless IR transmitters work but
are a pain to babysit and reprogram when their batteries die.  The range on
the RF receivers is heavily impacted by old construction.  Old plaster and
lathe seems to severely reduce the distances at which the remote
transmitters will function.  BE WARNED here, for adding more receivers often
makes things worse.

Their software has, in the past, sucked.  No better way to put it.  Dunno if
the current version of Active Home sucks any less but I'm not going to shell
out ANY money to get burned on it.  And given the adventures they're putting
people through with trying it with the new USB interface I'm not seeing much
that makes me interested.

The video stuff likewise stinks.  Even in the best of conditions the signal
quality is terrible.  Given that it uses 2.4gHz it can negatively impact a
WiFi network.

All that said, it may be that the low price point of X10 stuff attracts a
lot of people.  Unfortuantely a lot of them may end up turned off by home
automation because of how poorly many X10 devices perform.  Granted a little
blame could be shouldered by higher-than-realistic expections but not very
much.  This may well be a significant reason why more people aren't trying
home automation.  Thus without customers there's not the usual economy of
scale factors that would drive down the prices.

So does X10 stuff stink?  Yes but it's been only game in town at that price
point.

Is there a point to this, or are you just a shill for a competitor?

It's telling that you believe a poll of people's opinions in response to a
neutral question will largely benefit a competitor.  That suggests you
believe much user opinion about X-10 is bad.  I suggest we accept your
post as being your vote of Poor :-)

This is a forged message, probably from the same Anonymous Coward
running the "poll".

Does anyone know how to report such forgeries to the author's ISP? I
know that it's possible, but it's not something I have done.

The illiterate Anonymous Coward forging these messages has been reported
to her ISP (twice, now). Maybe nothing will come of it, but we can hope.

In the old days, I used to sign my UseNet articles with PGP, to prevent
this sort of nonsense. It's sad that I may need to start doing that
again. Ah, well.

contacting your ISP will do nothing since I dont own the handle but if
you dont stop this at once I will cry to my mother. Now stop it, its
not funny anymore, it hurts me to know that I cant control the handle.

Re: Vote on X10 product from x10.com? Do you like them
Thank you for showing your bias.  You are a troll.
You won't tally anything above "poor".
You can now go away and take your useless polling with you.

X10 PRODUCTS don't WORK FROM X10.com, they work by themselves.
