This review is from: Kocaso M1061 10.1"Android 4.0 Capacitive Tablet PC - 8GB, 1.2 Ghz, 1080P, WiFi
Pros: looks ok. decent build quality. cheep price.
Cons: Very slow CPU, supposedly 1.2 GHz, but not a modern CPU. Wireless constantly drops signal, even with good bars and good known location. Many basic apps like netflix will crash instantly. Any app that uses location services will lock up the device, this includes the builtin apps.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Aluratek BUMP Portable MP3 and FM Radio Boombox AMS01F
Pros: Cute and sounds pretty good with MP3s considering its diminutive size
built in battery and charging mechanism works well and lasts for several hours at least.
Cons: FM radio reception is poor
Fm station manual programing is impossible
Fm station automatic programing is atrocious
Other Thoughts: I bought this mostly for the radio feature and the clock.
The clock turns off the display after a few seconds, even when plugged in making it not so useful.
The radio has no way to program stations manually, instead it relies on an autoscan feature to load all of your local stations. unfortunately it does not scan the entire spectrum and load the 20 strongest but instead just loads the first 20 it finds, further the vast majority of the "stations" it finds are pure static.
It does have a manual tuning feature so if you want to listen to one radio station and one radio station only, and that radio station has a very strong clear signal it may suit your radio needs.
Pros: Runs Windows very fast, CPU side of things seems very stable. Runs very cool and quiet. Compact package should theoretically make a great media computer.
Cons: This is my first APU, but something is seriously wrong with this setup. Video flickers and flashes constantly and Windows and IE have video corruption of text and little triangles getting drawn all over.
In addition the onboard sound gives me little high-pitched squeals every few secconds with some media (specifically netflix). Doesn't matter if I use analog optical or hdmi, same annoying noise.
Been trying for three days to contact ASUS support. Received disconnects; garbled automated messages I am unable to understand, then disconnected; and on two occasions real live people who were too busy to talk but promised to call back, I have yet to hear from them.
Other Thoughts: A4-3400 APU
8 GB gskill 10666
WD 2TB HD
Updated bios to latest, and reset all settings.
Used drivers on disk and latest catylist from AMD
Tested on Windows 7 32, and did fresh install of Windows 7 64.
disabled all overclocking options
set the memory to run at the slowest speed
set the memory to run at the next highest speed
nothing made any difference.
Probably would run great with an external video and audio card, but that defeats the purpose.
