Vulcan EXCURSION XB VTA1005XB Intel Atom Z3735F (1.33GHz) 2GB Memory 32 GB eMMC SSD 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Screen is really crisp and clear.

Can play HD recording (~7 GB/hr) on 1080p monitor fine.

Great price and includes "Cloud Sync MS Office" subscription - 1 year.

Cons: Kinda bizarre that it jumps to the Start Screen when you close the lid laptop style. Why don't they just have it sleep? Didn't figure out how to change it, if possible.

First keyboard froze periodically and needed to be reattached often. Maybe it was damaged, cuz box corner was torn. The items don't fit inside box cuz the adapter is too big. So maybe it was crushed and it damaged keyboard? The packaging is horrible. Its "2 half- shells with inner sleeve" configuration is too small for the contents so the large adapter (which can be anywhere in the box) keeps the shells from closing flush. So what you have is a wobbly lid with 2 tiny circle tapes that "try" to hold the shells together. Worse is the fact that if you stack them in a warehouse or something, it has an adapter pressing on the keyboard and back of tablet via all the weight of the stuff on top of it!

Other Thoughts: I got this cuz my 11.5" laptop was too heavy for casual carrying with the plug which it needs if used more than 2 hrs. This fit the job perfectly and it's my favorite portable since my first netbook craze 5 years ago! I see that some negative review points don't really consider that this is supposed to be a budget device, and that it has a premium software bundle that's actually useful to many ppl, so I did some stress testing and I'll list my results for you to decide if it fits your purposes.

On 100% brightness, general surfing (20 minutes 1080p Youtube), charge lasted about 4 hours.

22 MB/s from Class 10 SDHC to internal storage.
12 MB/s from internal storage to Class 10 SDHC.

Streaming HD recording (~ 7 GB/hr) works, but sometimes has periodic stutter. Not sure if it's WiFi not being able to keep up consistently when system is bottlenecked "near maxed" or what.

Internal Speakers sound like laptop speakers. Mostly highs. Earphones sound pretty good and captures decent bass but you can still notice some high concentration. It sounds pretty good for a little gizmo, but noticeably doesn't sound as good as from my Creative headphone jack hooked up to Desktop PC for example.

Has 4.88 GB recovery partition, presumably some factory reset image. Not sure how to use, transfer, or erase it, but guessing it has to do with UEFI boot menu which can be reached via DEL on startup.

Warning for ppl with large fingers... Keyboard is small. But keys are spaced so if you get used to it, it improves accuracy. It's surprisingly responsive though for a tiny thing and given the reviews I read. Touch pad is pretty responsive too. Situational double-tap or single-tap for LM. 2-finger-tap for RM. No Wheel equivalent I found though. To drag, you have to double-tap-hold, then drag across that tiny pad, and "hand-off" the drag to another finger to go further (speed of drag affects total distance covered). You can "running man" it with one hand backwards and forwards. I'm a gamer with small hands so maybe my dexterity is a bit better than average but it's pretty easy to use.

I bought a few more for gifts so I'll post an update if anything changes my mind about this gizmo. Hope this helps! :)

EDUP 2 x 6dBi 2in1 Client / AP Mini 300M 300Mbps USB WiFi Wireless N LAN Network Adapter 802.11 n/g/b EP-MS1552
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a bit better than a 5 dbi single anttena one (Rosewill RNX-N180UBE) I replaced for going through 3 floors into the basement. I tried the homemade "WindSurfer" antenna template but it wasn't good enough so I got this 6 dbi one and used 2 WindSurfer antennas.

It didn't work great for HD video streaming that took about 15 Mbps+ steady bandwidth, but worked decent with older movies that was probably "stretched" to fit a 1080p screen. My area is filled with WiFi too so...not bad I guess. I got this after the 5 dbi one kept crapping out with neighbors getting more routers...even with SD video and regular internet. This one at least works consistently for SD video and some HD ones too. And I don't recall it ever completely loosing connection.

Works in Windows 7 with install. Windows 8 built-in in seems.

Cons: This is pretty big and sometimes requires adjusting in different angles for better reception. So you have to find a good place for it and fiddle with it. I put it in 180 degrees apart with Windsurfers pointing up and that seemed to work the best for me.

Other Thoughts: It's pretty good and I'd recommend it to try to help with long range connections. In case you're wondering, the 5GHz method doesn't reach. I tried it already and the $50 new 802.11ac adapters don't seem to work well at the ends of the range.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Black Silicone Over Black Hard Case w/ Kickstand
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Very good for price 09/23/2014

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Black Silicone Over Black Hard Case w/ Kickstand

Pros: Strong, seems durable and impact resistant. Didn't actaully test it in a real drop though. :P

Protruding rim offers some protection for screen unless droped on a rock or something. Also makes for a secure handle without pressing something near the center of screen.

Can do portrait or landscape mode, but only one angle, which is fine for what it is. Can use a book to angle it a bit more/less.

Cons: Black one seems show dust a lot and looks dirty when it gets between the cracks.

Other Thoughts: Overall very good itme for low price.
