This review is from: PROSCAN PLT8223G 8.0" Google Certified Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Pros: Screen is pretty good, although there are a couple of "smudges" in this one. Reasonably responsive for a single core CPU. Light weight and thin. You can probably use it to play games, but don't count on it too much if what you want to do involves much data usage. See cons.
Cons: Like the PLT7223G, I'm afraid these things have horrid WiFi. If you get too far from your router, it will say it has signal but it really doesn't at all. Then if you get right up on the router, a speed test will improve but doing things with Chrome or the Play Store are still quite slow... really too bad. Same issue with one PLT8223G and two PLT7223G's.
Other Thoughts: I'm kind of bummed that newegg sold me these when there's a design issue, but there's no returns on refurb units. They offered to RMA the 7" ones I got, but I'm 90% sure the replacements will all be flawed as well. I'll give it a shot and report back. Live and learn I guess - no more buying anything refurb unless there's a bunch of reviews to read.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PROSCAN PLT7223G 7.0" Google Certified Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
Pros: Affordable tablet. Screen looks pretty good and the tablet seems responsive and has the real play store. Angry Birds, Chess, Candy Crush, and Frozen Front ran acceptably. Viewing angle is okay if you turn the tablet all but one direction. Touch screen responsiveness is pretty good. For the resolution, the image appears sharp. Tablet is pretty thin for one so inexpensive.
Cons: The WiFi is pretty horrible. I mean really horrible. If you get right up on the router it improves but still seems to take a weirdly long time for anything to download from the play store. It also affects web browsing.
The camera is really also quite bad. Not too surprising - 0.3MP. Just remarking that it's so bad I'd probably never really use it.
Other Thoughts: I have two 7" versions that just arrived with an 8" still on the way. If the 8" has the WiFi problem then it's definitely a serious design flaw and you should avoid this tablet if you need frequent internet access and won't be sitting really close to your router. If you just want to (patiently) install some games and use the tablet more in that capacity, then go for it. I need a mix and kind of wish I could exchange them for something different now...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Allows you to convert your mini DisplayPort to either
Cons: Cannot send to more than one of the 3 outputs at a time.
Other Thoughts: I didn't expect that it would really drive 2 or 3 of the outputs. But, I did try it. Just be aware that it's to let you switch the miniDP to ONE of the other connections without carrying around 3 separate adapters or 3 larger cables.READ FULL REVIEW
