Pros: - Have an 32 Gb HTC phone with Android 6. Put this SD card in, and I now have a total of 96 GB of memory (90 after format). Might be a slight operational slow down, but not enough to be annoying. Android 6 does a speed check, and it warned me against using a Sandisk Ultra card I was previously using for "portable storage". No warning on this card.
- 16 bucks for 64 GB of internal storage -- gee, I think Apple charges $200!
Cons: - Might be a slight speed decrease. Not noticeable to me, but I'm not an Android power user.
- You have to hope this thing is reliable, because bad stuff will happen if the card fails and it's configured as internal. Believe me, I'll let you know if the card fails!
Other Thoughts: Internet chatter says stay away from "internal" memory use because of speed decreases, but most of these people are beyond power users. I get tired of trying to shift apps, photos, and music over to the "portable" sd card. Some apps play the game, but a lot don't. I'm excited about this Android 6 ability, and this is a sweet price/memory point. Take movies with you! This amount of memory along with off-loads of video to cloud storage, pretty much solves any Android memory limitations.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fanless, very small, dual core, takes 8G of inexpensive laptop memory (1.35 v), hdmi and vga ports.
Cons: Took a full day and a shopping trip to get this thing working. All I wanted to do is put a light weight linux os this thing. It would load the live disk (from USB stick) then fail during install - error was something about needing to clean the install CD. Tried all the firmware setting to no avail. Went out and bought a cheap USB stick, and it worked like a charm using default settings. It hated my ADATA USB stick apparently (tried two). Now for the good part; I wanted a little headless server. Nope. No can do. You have to have hdmi or vga plugged in or it won't boot. Had to buy an hdmi dummy plug - didn't even know they made such things! After all that, it's slow, bearable, but slow. Would I purchase it again? Probably not, especially because of the headless issue.
Other Thoughts: This is the second BRIX I've bought (different models). They are priced right next to the NUCs, but they were both adventures. If tinkering is not a hobby and you value your time, look elsewhere. Updating the firmware is another test, especially with linux. Also, it's worth your time to reapply thermal paste to the heat sink; Runs pretty hot otherwise. Forget the rebate too. It appears my invoice "was not readable". Screw Gigabyte. Never again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Changhong 50" 1080p LED HDTV - LED50YC2000UA
Pros: Good picture for the money - some bleed.
Cons: No support. Tomorrow will be the one year point. Been a decent iff not exceptional TV, but now the power indicator blinks 8 times before it turns on. Probably means something bad, but emailing Chnaghong support is like emailing a black hole. Info in, none out. Oh well ehat did I expect. It was cheap.
Other Thoughts: Was it worth it for one year of life. Probably not.READ FULL REVIEW
