This review is from: Lenovo A1000 8GB 7.0" Tablet
Pros: -Very good Lenovo build quality
-Responsive touch screen
-Beautiful IPS display
-Not too much bloatware
-Inexpensive as a refurb ($44.99)
-Great battery life
Cons: -Screen isn't technically hd (by 100 pixels or so)
-Can be a bit jerky because of the dated hardware/android package
Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this purchase. I watched a number of reviews on this tablet to get a feel for what to expect, and I wasn't surprised at all with what I listed in the cons section. The display looks crisp to me, but I'm not a big HD enthusiast.
The price makes this tablet an amazing value. I showed it to a friend after it arrived and he was convinced I was lying when I told him it was a < 50 dollar purchase.
Pros: -Runs cool, even with stock cooler
-3.4 ghz quad core for less than a benjamin
-Great for gaming, paired it with 8gb of kingston hyper-x fury red series 1866 and an EVGA 650 Ti Boost
Other Thoughts: For under a hundred bucks, you can't beat it. Being able to build a gaming system for under 400 dollars is why I buy AMD. The performance per dollar is off the charts. This is my fifth amd build, never bought an intel chip in my life, these CPUs are all I need.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Price (109.99) was awesome
-Superclocked from the factory
-EVGA makes great cards
-Runs cool and quiet
-Mine was brand new, despite being marked as a refurb, there was no scratches or blemishes on the cooler, basically a brand new card for 109 bucks.
-Has run everything I throw at it, there are some slight stuttering issues when you try to play brand new games at ultra quality, murdered soul suspect comes to mind, also have some issues with wolfensteins textures, but I suspect either a driver or a game issue, the card is flawless.
Other Thoughts: For the price, its exactly what I ordered. Shipping was fast and everything I ordered from my build worked right out of the box, including this "refurb" card which I suspected would be the failure point on my first boot.
Perfect card for my extremely budget build, runs all games I play with no issues, may not be able to max out the newest titles but there is a lot of overclocking headroom if you need it of course.
Overall a great deal, EVGA rocks.
