Silicon Power 128GB up to 75MB/s MicroSDXC UHS-1 Class10, Elite Flash Memory Card with Adaptor

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Not fast, but great for the price! 10/19/2015

This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB up to 75MB/s MicroSDXC UHS-1 Class10, Elite Flash Memory Card with Adaptor

Pros: Large capacity for low price. Sequential reads are very fast.

Cons: Sequential writes are pretty slow, between 20-30MB/s depending on method of transfer. Even if you're working with mostly large files, it can take well over an hour to fill.

Other Thoughts: This would be a great option if you're looking to simply fill a phone's micro sd card slot with your music collection. As long as your collection isn't over 128GB... write once (about two hours) and then you're set! Read speeds are very fast.

The card is exFAT formatted by default, like most 64GB+ cards. Use a free tool like GUIFormat for a high-capacity FAT32 format to ensure compatibility in an Android device. This will however restrict your filesizes to 4GB each, or less.

Roku 3 Digital HD Streaming Media player w/ Headphones Game Remote
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: No functional problems discovered yet. Seems like a quality product.

Cons: These came with purple colored earbuds which are meant to come with the Roku 2, not the in-ear headphones pictured, which are rightly meant to come with the Roku 3.

Other Thoughts: Gotta love a product that comes with a sticker on the bottom with a hand-written note which reads "B-STOCK."

Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet PC – Intel Atom Z3740D (Quad Core) 2GB RAM 32GB SSD, Windows 8.1

4 out of 5 eggs Windows Updates cripple a wonderful device. 12/13/2013

This review is from: Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablet PC – Intel Atom Z3740D (Quad Core) 2GB RAM 32GB SSD, Windows 8.1

Pros: Baytrail Z3740D x86/x64 processor gives the battery life of ARM, but with full Windows legacy compatibility.

Cons: -Default setting of "Download and install Windows Updates automatically" will cripple this device upon first reboot.
-Windows 8.1 version is 32-bit, despite Baytrail processor supporting 64-bit.

Other Thoughts: Everyone who reviews that this tablet stopped working within a week is the unfortunate victim of three Windows Updates negatively impact this device.

KB2887595 and KB2903939 are two monthly rollup updates which disable your WiFi. There is no way to re-enable your WiFi without uninstalling these updates.

KB2883200 affects standby, wake, power on.

It seems that some people are not reporting this issue, so it may be an early-revision hardware flaw affecting some units only. I've done extensive testing on this, and mine is definitely affected, and there's currently no driver or firmware update that fixes it.

The good news is that desktop Control Panel version of Windows Update will allow you to uninstall these updates (click Installed Updates in lower left corner,) hide them (tap and hold each selection when viewing them as an update available to be installed,) and restore them if need be (Restore hidden updates.)

This is obviously not an ideal solution, since these monthly rollup updates contain additional fixes for Windows 8.1. Until Microsoft patches the patch, this device isn't ready for prime time, although it's still manageable to the tech set.
