Pros: Newegg sent me this ASUS ZenPad S8.0 to review. Turns out that this thing is very fast. It's the fastest notepad that I have ever used. It puts many laptops to shame. The Wi-Fi is the fastest I've ever had the pleasure of using. The screen is absolutely amazing. Switching to this from my iPhone makes using facebook a pleasure again. The screens are updated almost instantly when on Facebook. Downloading updates is fast and easy , most of the programs needed updating since this is a new device. Installing apps from Google Play store is also super fast , it's like it reads my mind. Tap on the button and the app is installed almost instantly. The unit has an SD slot that can take up to 128gigabyte I installed a 64 gigabyte SD card. Since I'm a mechanic I was really looking forward to using it with my obd2 doggles. I could never get them to work very well with my iPad. Is as able to pair with the Bluetooth and connect with the Wi-Fi dongle with no troubles. I downloaded some obd2 apps and they worked. I was so happy! Development is on going as many of the ASUS apps were updated the first day and a system update a few days later. The sound is also great with speakers on both ends. Watching movies on this is nice when a tv is not an option.
Unlike ios the voice recognition works very well for me on this device.
Cons: Although this is a great tablet it could be improved. The touchscreen is worthless right after you wash your hands. I think it uses the oil in your skin and it just don't like clean hands. Also I found the need to reboot in order to get the touchscreen to work correctly as spots would stop working. I think these problems will be improved with future updates as it only happened on the main screens and not with apps.
ASUS packs this with a lot of software that I think many people will never use.
The camera's have no flash? Come on ASUS, why not add a flash?
On the keypad the space bar is to close to the home button and it is very easy to end up on the home screen. I found it easier to type on my iphone 4 then this. This is probably an Android common problem. Then the power button is way too sensitive and is easy to turn off unit by mistake. I think moving the power and volume buttons higher would be great.
Other Thoughts: After owning this for 5 months now I still think its a great tablet but the battery life is getting shorter. When I originally wrote this review the battery life was great, lasting me most of the day from 9am to 10 pm now its from 9 to about 5. several updates later and it still has the touch screen problem.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought one of these a few years ago and loved it so I bought 4 more.
Cons: sorry to say that one stopped working and the replacement had 2 loose sockets. The others are also with loose sockets but not as bad.
Other Thoughts: Newegg sent a new one and paid for return shipping so save the boxes incase you need to return anyREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pantum M6552NW 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi USB / Ethernet / Wireless mono Laser MFP Printer
Pros: This is a very fast and clear printer and scanner and the price is good.unfortunately that's all I can say about it.
Cons: Sorry Newegg but I can't give this printer a good review or even consider keeping it for my self. The first thing is it showed up at my home with no toner in it. So I had to wait for Newegg to contact the manufacturer and get me a toner. After it showed up today I thought OK where am I going to put it because I was going to keep it for black and white printing . well I thought I better try it out first. My brother printer was up and running in about 5 minutes with my computer and with my other devices in another 5 minutes each. All without opening a manual.so I tried that with this and after 30 minutes gave up and tried the guide that came with it.I saw I was doing it correctly with my WiFi but it just would not connect . so I used the setup program. It uses the USB port to setup WiFi. Yeah it was connecting! I scanned one document tried to save it and guess what didn't see a proper way to save it.no button visable.so I canceled it and went to print from my computer and low and behold the printer was no longer connected. No matter what it would not print or scan anymore so I rebooted thinking maybe a software problem, no help.
Other Thoughts: Anybody needing a fast copier with paper feed or flatbed scanner will like the speed of this as long as you don't need to hook it up to a computer.READ FULL REVIEW
