This review is from: BELLA BLA14082 Toast and Brew Breakfast Station, Purple
Pros: Does a nice and quick job at single-cup brewing. Makes good toast too. Nothing fancy. Just functional.
Oddly a surprisingly popular conversation piece too.
Cons: Seems a bit lightweight in terms of apparent durability.
Awkward to clean if coffee grounds spill or overflow inside the water reservoir housing (won't happen if you use it right).
Other Thoughts: Bought one a month ago with promo code for $12. Quite a bargain! Daughter came home from college for Xmas, liked it so much, took it back with her. So we bought another. This time $20. Still a good deal. Just hope it lasts.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: OK... I admit that I have not had this very long, but I wanted to share my delight with it, and usually I judge products with little forgiveness. The tablet is very light and has a beautiful screen. I have found no problems with speed (some reviewers have criticized this). For example, I use a couple of free PDF readers that are plenty fast. The stock android browser on the unit is quite snappy, noticeably faster than Chrome but Chrome runs fine too. Regarding bloatware....Yes, there are a lot of apps preloaded by Asus but I would not call them burdensome. For a first time tablet owner, I think they are more of an asset than a liability. For an experienced user, no doubt you will want to remove and/or disable several of them. I've tested these features and they work well: Video streaming (netflix, awesome video quality), sound quality, headphones, wifi, and Bluetooth. Configured a gmail account and an exchange account with email and calendar, no problems. Have installed the Swype/nuance keyboard, and its speech recog works very well. Google play store works fine. Have encountered no system instability.
Cons: Basically none substantial.
Other Thoughts: For anybody who has used an Android device, this tablet will be immediate out of the box enjoyment (assuming that you don't get unlucky with a defective unit which can happen with any product). I feel differently from those who report that the tablet is too slow. Admittedly, you won't get the latest quadcore 2.4 ghz snapdragon performance, but I think that the tablet is plenty fast enough to delight.READ FULL REVIEW
