ASUS DirectCU II Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Strong 1080p performance.
- 4GB Memory is more than enough for most games and more.
- A propor 256 bit bus. Come on, Nvidia...
- Easily overclockable to <5% on memory and core clock. I've seem temps above 60c and it's stable.
- Runs cool with no alterations, including thermal paste, at a 26c idle (OC).
- Doesn't seem noisy.
- 2 big fans + large heatsink.

Cons: - Whine: AMD CCC (catalyst control center) is a little underwhelming. Also, I've experienced low fan speeds (~20%) that were letting the temps get a little high. I manually control the fan speed now (~50%). This might have been from using CCC to overclock; it seemed to have poor control over the fans on auto. Catalyst 14.12 doesn't seem to report power info.

- only 1 HDMI port.

- It's a big card, you know the drill. Check that case.

Other Thoughts: Price to performance ratio is hard to beat. Dual Slot, large, and fairly heavy. I would recommend to any budget minded enthusiast. Crossfire is probably great.

3-in-1 Stylus for HTC/EVO Tablet and iPad and all Capacitive Touch Screen Devices with Laser Pointer and LED Light (2 pieces)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Good design. Sleek and black <3
- Works great with 10' tablet
- Built in cat toy
- Clip for my pocket protector (deal with it.)
- Batteries are still going strong

Cons: - Buttons for light and laser are loose and rattle when you move the pen. Kinda lame, but doesn't break the deal and isn't too loud.
- Uses small watch style batteries. Could use AAAs...
- Not a super wide angle to touch the pen to the screen, be careful not too hit the screen with the part of the pen before the rubber part. Hasn't done any damage to my tablet.

Other Thoughts: Great for the money. If you want a touch pen for casual use (esp. tablet) then this is for you. Product overall feels well made (except buttons) and long lasting.

Both fit nicely in my tablet case. Great for multiplayer games and people who get tired hands/fingers easily.

Le Pan TC 970 Tablet TI OMAP3630 1.00GHz 9.7

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent tablet after Android 2.3 update 03/27/2012

This review is from: Le Pan TC 970 Tablet TI OMAP3630 1.00GHz 9.7" XVGA 512MB Memory 2GB NAND Flash PowerVR SGX530

Pros: - Excellent tablet for around $200. For the specs (which are comparable to the iPad 2) you cannot go wrong.
- High resolution screen is really gorgeous (1024 x 768). I am very picky, and extremely pleased with the screen size and look.
- 512MB DDR2 RAM is plenty enough to make a (quite) gracious Android experience.
- Built in GPS seems just fine. Cool feature. Some of the more lower end tablets include them externally; eww.
- Can play pretty much every 3D game at excellent FPS (2.3 update).
- Pretty sexy looking. Loving the nice black bezel and backing.
- Capacitive touchscreen :D I've tested it, and it recognizes up to 5 points of touch at one time.

Cons: - Stock Android 2.2 is not super great.
- It's heavy. You start to feel it if you hold it in awkward positions for too long.
- It picks up fingerprints. Deal with it.
- A little unstable depending on settings/apps. There is a reset button on the back to solve those problems quick (i.e. occasional lock up, usually app related).
- Only 2GB built in storage. SD cards are under $1 per GB though!
- Proprietary 30 pin charging/USB connector (if you're crafty you can modify an apple 30 pin connector to work fine).

Other Thoughts: Stock- especially to a non-technical user- this tablet is a 3.5/5 stars. After going over to XDA and getting 2.3 (Gingerbread) on it, it runs like a champ (much better battery life) and gets 5/5. There is active (but young) development over at XDA and it's looking very promising. Enjoy! I recommend to all Android/gadget geeks out there from one brother to another.
