Raspberry Pi B+ With 8GB microSD Card w/ SD Adapter / NOOBS Software (83-16318)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Can't beat it for the price 02/25/2015

This review is from: Raspberry Pi B+ With 8GB microSD Card w/ SD Adapter / NOOBS Software (83-16318)

Pros: Put XBMC on it and it is the best little media player. Also use it for control stepper motors and other projects.

Cons: You have to purchase a license to enable mpeg2 and windows media codecs. It's only about $5 UDS, but still an additional cost. The Raspberry PI 2 was just released. It has twice the ram and is a quad core as opposed to the single core. Having said that, most places have them on back order, and the shipping costs are generally $9-11, and it doesn't include the micro sd card.

Other Thoughts: So to sum it up it's a great little device. The RPI 2 has better specs and the same MSRP, but if you can get the RPI B+ on sale or close out, pick one up. You won't be sorry.

RAVPower Dynamo-On-the-Go RP-PB09 Super High Capacity Power Bank (7800mAh Capacity / 1A & 2A Dual USB Output) for iPod, iPhone, Smartphones, Digital Cameras, Tablets and E-Books
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Large capacity. Two charging ports.

Cons: Included cables did not work with my Droid Razr. Had to use the cable that came with the phone.

Other Thoughts: I bought this from another big online retailer. I've had it for 6 months now. I bought it because my Razr has horrible battery life. This will charge it my Razr from 20% to full 3 times with a little juice left over.

Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet PC – Intel Atom Z3740D (Quad Core) 2GB RAM 32GB SSD, Windows 8.1
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice screen with good viewing angles.

Cons: No GPS, Can't even use a Bluetooth GPS with metro apps. I realize that is an MS issue not Dell, but something that needs to be said. Stylus is flakey, sometimes it works, some times it doesn't, can't really tell if it is the fault of the tab or the stylus. Arrived with a faulty battery.

Other Thoughts: I bought this tab directly from Dell. But they have nowhere in their site to leave a review. As soon as I opened the box I put the tab on the charger. after a day and a half, the battery status was "90% not charging". So I immediately called Dell support. After running diagnostics and verifying a bad battery, the support rep told me that he would issue a shipping label to ship it back to have the battery replaced. And that the total turn around time would be a couple of weeks. I promptly told him that I purchased a new working unit, not a refurbished on. After talking to his supervisor he agreed to ship a new unit. That was two weeks ago. I still do not have a working tablet. One was shipped, and then recalled before it got to my door step. Dell blamed the shipping company, the shipping company blamed Dell. I don't care who screw it up, I just want what I paid for. I still do not have a tablet, but they have my money. I have no idea what the status of the replacement is. When I call all they can tell me is that it being processed. I've already contested it with my credit card. I used to be a big fan of Dell and their service. After this I will never recommend Dell again.
