AMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 100W AD660KWOHLBOX Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Quad Core CPU @ 3.9GHz
-Fairly decent internal Graphics
-At the right price point for anybody

Cons: -The stock Heatsink and Fan is by far the worse I've seen yet. The temp of the CPU is idling at around 65C - 70C even in a room that is cooled by an AC on max speed (56F Temp in the room). I am not impressed at all by this abysmal CPU Cooler. You need an aftermarket cooler to really use it. I played Minecraft for 30 mins before it crashed giving me a Driver error on Windows 7. Checked the Temp and it peaked at 102C and was running at 95C+ the entire time. Limiting the FPS to 60 or even 30 does nothing.

It seems other people are getting mixed results with this cooler but I can assure you that this thing runs a lot hotter than it needs to be. So depending on your situation. Prepare for the worse cause this is NOT good AMD.

Other Thoughts: Buy an Aftermarket cooler even if you are getting little to no issues with that stock cooler. Because it doesn't even look like it'll last very long.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T-B1-GR NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.60GHz 10.1
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Light weight
-Good battery life
-Vibrant, beautiful screen
-Powerful CPU
-Great ASUS support
-Keyboard dock-able to be used as a netbook
-Amazing camera (Both front and back)

My first Tablet. What a choice....This thing is beyond superb in every manner. Looks nice, feels nice, performance is great. And it's by far one of the greatest tablets I've ever used.

Micro-HDMI Port. While it doesn't come with the cable, it means you could easily connect this to your HDTV and use it sorta as a Media center if you want. Or simply watch movies or even game on the device through a big screen TV.

Expandable memory with MircoSD. Smart choice to keep this, some tablets seem to miss this. I find this convenient as you could add more storage with MircoSD cards.

For the power it's boasting, this guy is very thin and lightweight. About the same as an actual 300 page notebook almost (In terms of weight). The design seems simply from the front. But the rear shows other wise. This nice metallic style finish gives it a nice touch and beats those glossy finger-printed infested ones. Although, this one does attract finger prints but not as much.

The Terga 3 Chip is a monster. Graphics in games (Supported by Terga 3) looks beyond amazing. Perhaps, near Xbox 360 quality in certain aspects. All games run butter smooth on this and with a 1920 x 1200 HD screen. Everything pops out and it gives a perfect balance of colors and pixels. Also, the view angle is great as you could see the screen clearly even from a 50 degree angle.

Cons: -1GB of RAM shows it's limitations to some extent
-Limited Android flexibility
-A little longer than usual start-up time from power on
-4.0.4 bugs
-Mono speaker

This guy does has it's share of problems. When I got it, It had Android 4.0.4. Not sure if I got a somewhat bugged version but:

Performance got spotty under power saver mode. The Device screen wouldn't turn on when the brightness was lower than around 10 or so. Keyboard lagged the device sometimes.

However, after one update. all of the problems were gone. It's now more rock solid than ever. Wish ASUS did more to the Android O/S. This one comes with a pretty much stock Android Ice cream sandwich. Unlike the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for example, you can't do certain useful features like delete an empty home page (Or I just can't seem to get it to do it or whatever).

The 1GB of RAM. While fast, does show it's limits to some extent. Multitasking can cause the device to slow down a little bit. Unlike the Galaxy Tab 10.1, sometimes it can't seem to properly handle multitasking. But it's not bad enough to knock any Eggs for this.

The speaker has good quality to it and is loud enough to hear it. However, there's only one, and it's placed on the right hand side where you would place your fingers over when holding it. The sound can get a bit muffled because of this. Somewhat of a bad design on ASUS part.

Other Thoughts: One monster android tablet by ASUS. Some minor design flaws and some starter software issues. But no where near is it bad enough to ruin the experience. If ASUS added an extra GB of memory, solved some design issues. And added a more flexible edition of Android. Then it would've been king easily. Either it be gaming, multimedia, social media, music, school work, or all of that and more. The ASUS transformer Pad Infinity is a solid choice.

Nippon Labs AD-SATA-IDE-B IDE to SATA Adapter or SATA to IDE Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -It works.

Cons: -The instructions I received barely made sense on how to work it.
-It's a tad too long, so make sure you got a little extra room.

Other Thoughts: Should be smaller.
