ASUS MeMO Pad FHD 10 (ME302C-A1-BL) Intel Atom Z2560 2GB DDR2 Memory 16GB Flash 10.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I'd have to say I'm pretty impressed so far. It seems like a lot of pro reviews about the FHD 10 are lukewarm and compare it to the Nexus 10 which from what I've seen cost $100 + (33%) more street price than the memo pad but the users reviews I've seen talk pretty favorably about this tablet so I decided to roll the dice. I also own a 2012 Nexus 7 so I have something to compare it to.

Back story: 2 weeks before Christmas I went to Staples and bought a ME102 on sale for $229 and I used it for about a week and it wasn't bad but then I saw the FHD 10 on sale at Newegg for $249 only $20 more than the ME102 so I ordered it and returned the ME102 and I'm glad I did because the FHD smokes it in every way.

I'm pretty technical so I did my homework on what was out there in this price range and what attracted me was the screen resolution, 2 gb of ram, the microSD slot, and the HDMI output. I was a little concerned about the processor causing app compatibility problems after reading some of the reviews but so far I haven't run across one app that doesn't install and work. I don't play games on this so I can't really comment on extreme gaming performance but I use this tablet pretty heavy for day to day tasks and for what I do it's very responsive and so far much better than my 2012 Nexus 7 which cost me more than the FHD,

Some people complained about the build quality seeming flimsy and while the shell doesn't feel as industrial as my Nexus 7 time will tell. Do yourself a favor and buy a nice fitting case for it, they're not easy to find for this specific tablet but they're available online.

Sound is very good for small speakers

Installed a 32 gb micro sd card no problem

Hooked up the hdmi to a tv and it worked great. I don`t normally plug a tablet into my tv but I could see this being handy if the need arises.

The graphics are very very nice, crisp and clear. The bigger pictures in the Facebook app take a couple of seconds to appear but my Nexus 7 takes longer.

As far as performance its peppy and responsive, quicker than my Nexus and the ME102.

As far as apps it has a nice assortment of basic Android apps but I wish I could uninstall what I don't want but Asus has them locked in.

Cons: Can't uninstall Asus software, camera seems mediocre but I prefer my digital camera over a phone or tablet for important pictures anyway.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a 10" tablet for less than $300 (if you look around you can buy it on sale for around $240) this tablet offers a great value without compromise.

Seagate Central STCG2000100 2TB Cloud Storage System

5 out of 5 eggs So far so good 12/23/2013

This review is from: Seagate Central STCG2000100 2TB Cloud Storage System

Pros: I was going to wait a week and give my review but I'm putting the Central through it's paces and it's working so great I'm excited. I read the setup guide before I got this and it took a matter of minutes to set up.

Right now as I type I'm streaming a movie wirelesly to a Roku 3 and 2 movies are streaming to two wired computers all while transferring 25gb to the Central and there's not a hiccup. Transfer rate is 11mb on a 10/100 network through a Comcast/Arris modem and my old faithful Linksys WrtG54.

I've been using chaneru for the Roku and it picked up the Central right away as did my window computers.

I don't normally go on but I read the reviews and was a little leery about what to expect. Although I am pretty good with computers and all things technical geeking around with network and server settings is not my idea of a good time.

I'm not going to access the drive from outside the network so I didn't even try those features. I also don't use itunes or care about the Facebook backup so i didn't try those either

Cons: That I didn't buy a 4 gig.

LaCie 2TB USB 2.0 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs Works fine 02/11/2012

This review is from: LaCie 2TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 301871U

Pros: Price, Software worked without a glitch and I was up an running in 5 minutes. I've transferred over a TB of data non stop and it didn't even hiccup

Cons: Not super fast but I knew this going into it. I use this for backup set and forget and I'm not that concerned about speed. If drive prices were lower I would have bought a faster drive and external case but this is good bang for the buck considering the WD black 2tb is somewhere around $220

Other Thoughts: I needed a reasonable priced large drive and was leary because some of the drives in other brands seem to have a high failure rate from what the reviews say and I don't feel like going through the transfer process again 6 months down the line because I saved $20. This model had some good reviews across the net and I figured I'd give it a try.
