Pros: Was on the list of approved memory for my new mobo. Worked from the word go at rated speeds. But hey it's memory - how could it be better? The heat sinks are understated, no spikes or ridges - perfect.
Cons: None, solid product.
Other Thoughts: When I got it, the sticks were in a see-through plastic clam-shell, similar to other suppliers' packaging. But this just popped open, didn't have to get a box cutter to get the packaging open - how great is that? And there is a shiny little enthusiast sticker that comes with it - similar to CPU and GPU stickers to dress up cases. I don't really think it works on my HTPC case - going for the stereo component vibe, not pwn all noobs.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Black Plug Dual Ports USB Wall Home Charger Adapter for Samsung/iPad/iPhone
Pros: good little device
Cons: can't think of a thing
Other Thoughts: Came in a padded envelope, I think a little more quickly than the shipping notes might say. Damage free, nice trinket for charging all the USB devices.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Ematic EGS102GR 1GB Memory 4GB 10.0" Touchscreen Tablet Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)
Pros: Only 4 eggs because we've not owned it very long. Got this for my 6th grader for her birthday. She's had an iPod til now and the iPads, even the mini, were out of the price range we wanted to spend.
Screen is bright. 10" size is nice at this price range. Resolution is adequate for driving Android. External sound is decent.
This, like other Android tablets, is for Google Play and other services. My daughter very easily downloaded some games.
We also hit YouTube for some videos. They streamed just fine without lag over WiFi.
Cons: Viewing angle is a bit narrow. It is a little difficult for two people to watch something at the same time, without getting close.
Let me say I don't like touch screens. But I felt there was some lag and uncertainty in my typing on this screen. Not excessively bad, just not crisp. I've goofed around with much more expensive devices and they are definitely more defined and crisp.
Battery life. Jury is still out. I can't get a straight answer from my daughter. But her usage never takes her far from an outlet or a car charger. The idea behind a tablet instead of a PC is that she can sit in the living room in an easy chair, curled up with the tablet. What I understand is that she can go about 2 hours playing, before it need to be plugged in again. Though I'm not sure she ever got a full charge.
Other Thoughts: Even if you download a free game, the Google Play marketplace (or whatever it is called) still wants a Paypal or other payment method.
Years ago we purchased several eMatic MP3 players for the kids. They were inexpensive, but even today all still work, even after getting really beat up. Ematic is not a well known brand, but my previous positive experience was enough to take a chance.
The rest of the tablet, like the bezel and back are quality. This product seems solid and I hope it will last a long time.
