Pros: Jelly bean and high resolution screen are nice, battery life pretty long (4 hours almost), intuitive, able to uninstall factory bloats (FB, pandora, netflix) for my most used Google related aps. 1 GB ram is nice, waiting for 32GB SD card so i can load it with files (eBooks). Camera works. Got through newegg promotion for $68. Avatar claims to provide life time tech support.
Cons: unit drops wifi when shut down and restarted, recalls passcode at least. Also odd that you can select auto brightness for display setting but it doesn't hold. Hangs up on some youtube videos, seems to do better perhaps if closer to the router... so some shows are majority buffering vs. playing. Big Dog channels seem to play better (BBC, etc.). Screen senstivity is pretty low -- have to repeat taps on some buttons some of the time
Other Thoughts: build quality is pretty good for the priceREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Coboc 10 ft. High Speed HDMI® Cable
Pros: worked fine to stream YouTube show (55 minutes) to my Sony widescreen tv. nice to have 10 ft of cord..so laptop can be close to me instead of on ottoman, has gold tipped connectors too, purchased here for $3.
Cons: why did a I buy that $60 armored HDMI cable from the store? watch the traffic of dogs and pets that can get tangled up in the 10 foot cord.. don't let cord get crimped..READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Concept Green Energy Solar Charger 3600 mAh Silver
Pros: all adapters were included (mini USB, micro USB, iPhone/iPod etc). Nice fuzzy bag to store unit. Charges find from house AC and indicates source of power. used it once to recharge my 3400Mah cell battery (was half depleated) and it worked as intended in about 2 hours or less. I had it in bright light in widowsill to allow solar recharge at same time.
Cons: solar charge would likely take over 4 hours as only one panel on unit (some have 3 panels like a propeller design)
Other Thoughts: will try to post back here if a hurricane comes and it becomes the main source of power for my Verizon phone, their towers stay up in storms for the most part.READ FULL REVIEW
