Rating: 1/5high 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.
When using the factory supplied charger, on a voltage regulating UPS, the units display has interference lines (similar to someone running a hair dryer on the same plug as a CRT tube). I originally thought this could be an issue w/ my house electrical, however it has only been charged on the UPS.
Shame on me for buying too early as I'm outside of Newegg's warranty period. I'm not sure I wish to deal with the manufacturer and their one year warranty.
Not a recommended buy.
