ASUS TF201-B1-GR NVIDIA Tegra 3 1GB Memory 32GB Flash 10.1
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Display is nice, battery life with keyboard is very good.

Cons: Don't buy it if you want to use GPS, it plain doesn't work. Asus has class action suit which they just lost over this. The metal case won't let the GPS function except in the strongest of signals. ASUS solution is to give you a external antenna which can't be used while charging the tablet or while connected to the keyboard.
WIFI reception is poor also due to same case.even after ASUS upgrades the internal antenna. Had to put a WIFI repeater in my living room just to get enough signal strength.

Other Thoughts: A lot of these units got returned because of above problems and now are being resold as "refurbished" even though the problems are still there. Bought my son a Galaxy Tab II and it's a much better tablet which can be bought at about this price.

ECS Z77H2-A2X DELUXE(2.0) LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price, has four Sata3 ports

Cons: Manual is kind of skimpy and has at least one error in describing the Sata ports configuration.

Other Thoughts: After working with Tech Support I now understand why the Sata3 ports don't show correctly in the Bios, I don't like it, but they seem to work ok, so I've revised my rating.

ECS Z77H2-A2X DELUXE(2.0) LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price?

Cons: Installed board but can't get Sata ports 5&6 to recognize and drives. Drives and cables all work when rotated through ports 1-4 so it's not them. Manual is confusing because on page 20 item 1 it says ports 3-6 are used to support Sata2 devices while ports 1-2 support Sata3. ECS website and Newegg details say board has 4 Sata6 ports, which is why I bought the board. ECS support website is worthless, it won't even let me submit a tech reports, keeps saying "fill in required information" but it's all filled in. Guess I'll try to call their support number (it wasn't in any of the manuals or paperwork or on the Support website) but I got it from another review of a different ECS board.
