This review is from: 8.0" Tablet - Wi-Fi Version
Pros: Really decent little tablet with great S Pen integration. Looked like brand new out the box. Instantly upgraded to KitKat 4.4.2 once connected to WiFi. Memory card slot allows upgrading with another 64GB memory using micro SD card. Consider this over Tab 3 8 since this has a better processor and more RAM. This tablet also makes a great E-reader, as the 8 inch screen and light weight make it easy to see and yet manageable in one hand.
Cons: Auto brightness doesn't seem to adjust as well as it should for light conditions, so I control it manually. Although plastic construction, it doesn't feel cheap and you're going to put a cover on it anyway for protection and for improved versatility. Battery life decent (7 hrs), could be better.
Other Thoughts: This tablet was initially shunned due to its high retail price, but Newegg's refurb pricing makes this neat little gizmo a rockstar deal with tons of functionality. Buy one -- you won't be sorry.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 8 inch screen beats most 7 inch tablets, upgrades to Kit Kat 4.4.2 once connected to WiFi, accommodates 64GB micro SD card--great to keep the resident 16GB open as much as possible, serves as a good eReader, good battery life, a decent pack of "perks" when registering tablet with Samsung
Cons: Auto brightness not nearly as sensitive as Note 3, you may have better results setting screen to a fixed brightness
Other Thoughts: If you're considering a 7 inch tablet for an eReader, you may want to give this 8" tablet a look, too. Although not pure Android (has Samsung TouchWiz interface on top of Android), it's pretty darn close and may be a better value since this device will play fair with Google Play Store, unlike some proprietary eReaders.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Netgear C3000 N300 WiFi Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem Router 2 In 1
Pros: Super easy to install, security on by default, good throughput speeds,
Cons: Only two ethernet ports
Other Thoughts: Only two ethernet ports, perhaps as an economizing measure. Then again, maybe pushing the dependency on wireless connection--after all it is a wireless router/modem combo. Nice, simple connection instructions and broad-based compatibility with virtually all ISPs.READ FULL REVIEW
