Pros: Aluminum casing, backlit keys, stable. Works great with win7pro. Looks sleek and sturdy
Cons: Screws were not even tightened inside! makes me think of shoddy craftsmanship and worry about what other problems may unfurl. (windows 8 stinks) Hard drive stopped working. (working now, read below)
Other Thoughts: After 7 mos. the hard drive up and disappeared. After wrestling around with it, I decided to try and hook the drive up to another computer to (try to) retrieve my data. Upon pry up the keyboard (step one of actually opening it I found 4 screws no fastened at all. FOUR! After taking off the back plate, I discovered the source of the odd rattling sound (I thought it might have something to do with the fan or HDD) Another loose screw, this one rolling around. It ended up that the SATA cable had come loose from the main board; reseat the connector, Tighten the screws that were in there, fasten all the others, and walla! It's working again. Still, loose screws inside? Unacceptable craftmanship. The blue plastic on the side of the screw that holds it tight wan't even marred. I have not ever dropped this and I have a great supporting case. I am lucky with a screw rolling around inside that all that was wrong was a loose connector.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Light (T-mobile) LTE Quad-Core 1.4GHz Cell Phone
Pros: Smaller, as a phone should be. Powerful enough for most games. Pretty much everything that you would expect from a smartphone. Also a lot cheaper that other smartphones.
Cons: Despite having the same specs as a S3, it still lags a little more in some applications. Still not enough to warrant the extra $100 to get a S3. Have had it lock up a few times, requiring a restart. Never had this with my S3.
Other Thoughts: Still worth it. I can live with the quirks for the money that I saved.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, slick, pretty, great for online browsing. I would still recommend this if all you do is use the Chrome browser and apps on your PC.
Cons: Does not support CIFS net file share. Chrome OS differs significantly from Chromium OS. You cannot install programs without putting it into developers mode and then every time you reboot, it fails OS authentication and wants to go back to factory install.
Other Thoughts: I had tried Chromium OS before deciding to purchase this for my girlfriend. She mostly just surfs the web, so this would have been great. The part that failed was not being able to save to my NAS the way I had it set up, though I could install SaMBa in Chromium to do this. My NAS is pretty flexible, and I'm hoping to learn a new protocol that might be compatible with Chrome OS.READ FULL REVIEW
