This review is from: Acer DA220HQL (UM.WD0AA.A01) All in One Multi Touch Android Computer ARM Cortex-A9 Dual Core 1.0Ghz 1GB RAM 8GB Internal Storage 21.5” HD 2-Point Multi Touch Display Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
Pros: Fast shipping
Touch screen never worked. Well.. it works every once in a while, but so intermittently and randomly that it registers touches even when it's not being touched. Thus moving the pointer completely away from whatever it's over at the time. So, I can't even use it with the mouse and keyboard.
Can't use it as a monitor only. I can't access any of the monitor settings without the touch screen functionality. Also, putting it next to *any* other monitor shows how dull and lifeless the LCD is.
I was unable to return the item as I bought it as a gift, and by the time it was opened, the limited warranty had run out already.
Other Thoughts: This was for my fiancee who loves to cook, and we were going to mount it in the kitchen so she could have something to use for recipes, with a touchscreen that would wipe clean after cooking or baking. I'm extraordinarily disappointed in the quality and find it hard to believe that any company these days would sell something "factory" refurbished that doesn't work.
Great idea. Awful company. I will never buy anything Acer again and I highly recommend nobody else does either. I buy a ton of hardware for myself, friends and my software development company. Acer fails.
Pros: - Extraordinarily quick, like a tablet should be.
- Fantastic price and came with a keyboard dock, that contains a second battery.
- I don't think it was mentioned, but the one I received was the ATT LTE model, so I can put it on my data plan... if I wanted to be bled dry for data rates.
Cons: - Asus software wasn't installed for the touchpad or Supernote. It only took a second to go to the store and download them..
- Non-existent manual. I had to look up online to figure out what it actually has on it for hardware. Even the PDF manual you get from ASUS is garbage.
Other Thoughts: It's exactly what I thought I would get, and I was able to buy a few for my development team, since it looks like RT won't be disappearing. All of the *apps* that are available for Windows 8.1 Desktop are available due to them all using WinRT. If you're complaining there aren't any apps at this point, you're not looking. They may not all be great, but the ecosystem is coming along.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech M600 910-002666 Black Touch Scroll USB RF Wireless Optical Mouse
Pros: - Cheap as dirt.
- Windows 8 feature integration.
- Customizable gestures
Cons: Only a minor problem... You have to get used to not resting your fingers on the mouse most of the time. Not a big deal though. It took me maybe a day to get used to this mouse.
Other Thoughts: I bought two initially. I, in fact, liked it so much and is so convenient for me to use, I bought 2 more. Only problem I had then was which one goes to which machine. Easily solved with a dot of nail polish on the mouse and wireless fob.READ FULL REVIEW
