This review is from: Trident Case Black Aegis Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Sleek Armor Model AG-SAM-NOTE8-BK
Pros: The is an excellent accidental-drop protector. The inner shock absorber / outer impact resistant shell is a good idea, and a screen protector layer is included. The case probably fits a bit too tightly, but definitely isn't going to work its way off.
Cons: There are two cons. One, putting on the outer hard plastic shell is quite difficult, and seems that in some cases could bend/flex the tablet to the point of damage. It took a long time to ease the outer shell into place.
Two, the drop protection for the back of the tablet is excellent, but there isn't any front coverage; the screen protector seems great against scratching but not sharp blows.
I wonder that that the protection from the back is overkill considering that the front-side lip is so low.
Other Thoughts: This case has two layers, an inner soft rubber case and a outer hard plastic shell. It seems that the rubber inner layer could be used by itself without the outer shell if the additional thickness bothers you.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS KBN-I/5200 AMD A6-5200 Quad Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: Low power, fast booting, very small (fit with much room to spare in the SilverStone Sugo case series). Great general windows/browser performance. Good for light gaming and MMO playing.
Cons: Not overclockable. Concerned about the longevity of the tiny CPU fan.
Other Thoughts: Star Trek online (Good settings, w/o shadows) 30 FPS @ 1680x1050
World of Warcraft: (Good) 22 FPS @ 1680x1050, (Fair) 35 FPS @1680x1050
*Note, this is with very slow memory (DDR3 1066) and slow 5200 RPM HDD from another PC. These performance numbers could be much higher with better RAM.
This review is from: DELL KB212-B 469-2457 Black 104 Normal Keys USB Wired Ergonomic Keyboard
Pros: Full key travel (about 4mm), standard layout but smaller casing, 6-key rollover. Rubber feet are firmly attached and did not slide or come off after ~2 months of use. Letter printing seems to be good, no sign of rubbing off even on WASD.
Cons: Seems to be a poor overall value for a no-frills membrane keyboard. Not loud, but not quiet either; Typing at full speed makes some noise. USB cord is somewhat short.
Other Thoughts: I personally like the feel of the keyboard, the keys are low resistance, about 50% of normal travel (much more than "laptop style" keyboards), and since the keys are full size and the layout is standard my typing speed has gone up. I am somewhat concerned about reliability, but after a few months I have notices no internal/external degradation after heavy use.READ FULL REVIEW
