ASUS Nexus 7 NVIDIA Tegra 3 1 GB Memory 32 GB 7.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Battery life, speed of the device, 4.3 update..

Bought 2 of these for my 7 year old twins. Plugged them in, ran through the first start wizard, punched in their gmail addresses, connected to my wifi, ran the 4.3 update, everything went smooth as silk on both.

Battery life is outstanding. Much longer than I expected. They use the internet, install stuff from the Play Store, play lots of gpu intensive games, watch videos. Battery lasts all day.

I gave one of the old Mali400 based tablets my boys had to the wife and she's highly jealous of my boys new tablets. Looks like I'm dropping another $140 on a Nexus for her too :-/

Cons: First off, I want to say that I knew all of the items below before purchase, and I'm ok with this stuff. Which is why I didn't deduct any eggs. I'm including it here just so others know.

This is a refurbed unit. Which means that it essentially comes with the tablet, the usbac power adapter, and a usb cable in a plain brown box.

There's no SD card slot on the Nexus 7.
There's no rear facing camera. There is one on the screen side though.

Other Thoughts: Unlike others reports, both of the tablets I bought updated perfectly fine to 4.3. I made sure both were connected to the power adapter and charging, both were connected to a *stable* internet connection, and once the update started I just let them do their thing. No issues whatsoever. It was literally the first thing I did after entering in the gmail address during initial setup.

CONAIR TS34F Travel Smart Flat Folding Multi-Use Cart

5 out of 5 eggs Great travel cart! 09/16/2013

This review is from: CONAIR TS34F Travel Smart Flat Folding Multi-Use Cart

Pros: Folds up virtually flat to a size of less than 3ft long. Wheels automatically fold out when you open it up. Good construction. Seems like it will hold up well long term even with it's moving parts.

This would make a great travel cart for luggage on a hard surface.

Cons: Wish the wheel base was a little wider for my needs, but not the cart's fault. I just didn't know precisely what I needed.

Other Thoughts: I actually use this as a cart to hold my fishing gear and cooler when I go fishing. I've logged 4 miles on this cart over uneven compacted dirt and gravel trails and over weeds with probably around 40 pounds strapped to it. Still rolls as smooth and folds/opens as well as the day I got it.

With that being said, it does have a little tendency to tip left or right sometimes when being rattled around on uneven ground. I don't think the designers had fishing trips in mind when they made it.

TP-LINK TL-SG1008D 10/100/1000Mbps Unmanaged 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Power-Saving
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Simply works as advertised. Plug it in, off it goes. No muss, no fuss.

This is the second one of these I've bought. The first one is still running fine after about 6mo of 24/7 use. I really hammer that one with LAN > LAN transfers to my hardware raid setup. Never a hiccup.

Cons: It doesn't have a food replicator built in to serve me chocolate covered bacon?
