IRULU Walknbook 10.1
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 10.1" screen with preinstalled screen protector
Cool green color
Detachable keyboard/stand/cover
Windows 8.1 upgradeable to 10
Office 365 (free with registration)
32GB flash memory
USB 3.0 port
Micro USB port (cable included)
Mini HDMI port (cable not included)
Micro SD card slot

The tablet comes with a detachable keyboard. The detachable keyboard is a hard velvety material that includes the keyboard with a touchpad and a flap that magnetically folds behind the tablet to hold it up. The tablet attaches to the keyboard by a magnetic strip.

Upgrading to Windows 10 took longer than expected. At one point, it sat there for over an hour before it rebooted itself and finished upgrading.

In order to set up the tablet, you must have an email account. This account is also used to register a free copy of Office 365.

Battery lasted 3 days with minimal use.

Cons: The keyboard stand is not sturdy unless on a hard flat surface. Imagine a piece of paper, held vertically, and the top left and right corners folded downwards and towards the center of the paper. It makes a triangle shape with space underneath. Unless you're working on a hard surface, the magnetic triangle will fall apart. You can't really sit it on your lap.

Trying to use the tablet to perform Windows functions is a bit cumbersome, especially with Windows Explorer. It's very easy to accidentally move a file or folder using the touchscreen. Also, don't expect to be able to install all the programs you typically use on a Windows pc. The flash memory is only 32GB (28GB formatted), 12GB of which is already used up by the operating system. So you are left with only 16GB to install any programs. That's not even including any data files. Good thing there's a micro SD card slot and USB port for that.

The selection of apps at the Windows Store is very limited, much worse than a Windows cell phone in my opinion. It does come with Candy Crush preinstalled.

Other Thoughts: A note about having to use an email account. Once the tablet was upgraded to Windows 10 and several updates were installed (over a month later), an option to create a local account became available. I no longer had to sign in with an email account. However, I still have to sign into the Windows Store using the outlook account if I want to install any apps.

Nice effort on providing a pre-installed screen protector; however, I almost mistakenly peeled it off thinking it was a protective plastic sheet that electronics with screens typically have when you first take it out of the box. Besides, there are many bubbles on the screen that I know will never go away because there is lint stuck inside them. Also, one of the corners is already bent (right out of the box), so I know for sure the screen protector will come off much quicker. It may have been better to include the screen protector and allow the customer to install it themselves.

Overall, this is a nice hybrid tablet. But if you're looking to perform laptop functions, I wouldn't recommend it.

Acer G277HL bid Black 27
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: nice size screen
very thin bezel, which helps keep the overall size of the monitor as small as possible
3 inputs - hdmi, dvi, and vga
looks clean and crisp in all 3 inputs
extremely light in weight
emits minimal heat

Cons: The height of the monitor is not adjustable. And the stand is abnormally taller than other monitors I've used. You can only tilt the monitor up, not down. The input settings doesn't allow you to force it to a specific input. If it doesn't see a signal, it will automatically change to another input until it finds a signal.

My biggest gripe is the stand attachment. It doesn't snap securely into the monitor, like all other monitors I've ever purchased. The buttons are located on the underside of the monitor. In order to push a button, I must push up against the monitor. And because of the poor design of the stand attachment, every time I press a button, the monitor literally wobbles from side to side (picture a ship). I have to hold the left side up in order to keep the monitor from moving. It becomes quite annoying for someone who changes inputs quite often. Since I purchased 2 of these, I placed them right up against each other, and taped them both together from the back, so that they don't move when I tap the buttons.

Other Thoughts: Graphics wise, I didn't notice anything significant.

The fact that the monitor doesn't weigh anything may be an attributing factor to the wobbling.

The monitor doesn't use a standard power cord. It uses a power adapter.
