high pitched capacitor whine out of box
Pros: It was less expensive than most when they had the 100$ off sale.
Cons: This was given as a Christmas gift for our early Christmas exchange on 12/15/12. Upon first charge the unit gave off a high pitched whine similar to that of a conventional hard disk drive going out, but more likely a capacitor issue/whine. The unit was flashed after first full charge w/ newest Arnova approved update and after two days, the high pitched whine has not resolved, nor has the flash been fully effective (unit now cycles when powering on, after 3 to 4 days of normal operation). This process (firmware update) was recommended on the Arnova FAQ and is therefore considered within the Product Review Guidelines.
Other Thoughts: I have no issues with Newegg. Video file to follow
