This review is from: G.SKILL 32GB microSDHC Flash Card w/ SD Adapter Model FF-TSDG32GA-C10
Pros: Bought 2, 1 worked!
Cons: Bought 2, 1 died, FAST! Lasted for about a minute before it died. Tried it in multiple devices, readers, in both Windows and Linux, nothing recognized it.
Other Thoughts: I got 2, one for me and one for my son's new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 because it only had 8GB of space. I put it in, formatted it, and started copying files to the card. After about a minute, the copy failed...odd.
Tried again, failed instantly.
Checked the storage capacity, card was not showing up anymore. Well this would had been a huge blow for my son's first tablet for his birthday if I didn't have a second one that did work, and it is still working.
I've bought lots of G.Skill RAM and have had no problems with any of them. Because of that, despite some of the bad reviews, I decided to get the cards because I have trusted G.Skill. Now one faulty product is one thing, but look at the reviews and see how many faulty cards there are.
To G.Skill: I am very tech savy so don't respond saying that I should be sure to format it properly or that I should handle it carefully, etc. I troubleshooted the problem in different devices and OSes and all failed. Look at the number of reviews and see that there is a problem in your manufacturing of this card, acknowledge it and fix it. Don't tell people that they should have formatted it correctly over and over again. I did the exact same thing with the second card that I did with the first and that second card is still going strong.
I will more than likely continue to buy your RAM as I've never had a problem with any G.Skill RAM stick that I have owned (about 2 dozen). I might be hesitant on buying another memory card from you if my replacement also fails.
These cards will not be used in anything that I am not ok with losing data in.
This review is from: ASUS Google Nexus 7 Dark Gray Travel Cover
Pros: Fits super tight (that's a good thing).
Hard to get on (again a good thing).
Fits like a skin and not a glove (that's another good thing)
Flap covers screen very nicely
Cut to fit perfectly leaving the buttons, USB, headphone jack and speaker perfectly useable
One piece mold (no parts either glued or sewn on)
ASUS made the darn thing and the Nexus so it should be a perfect fit.
It takes a small bit of work to get it on but once it is on, its on. It feels like a glued-on outer shell making it very slim and you won't need to worry about it slipping off.
It's material has a soft rubber feel to it that makes it not slide easily yet doesn't make it 'sticky'. No, it does not have a magnetic cover but it is unnecessary because the power button is right there on the edge and the Nexus wakes up quick. The flap covers the screen perfectly flat. The small raised ridge of the flap keeps it from sliding. And the hinge does not feel weak. I have yet to have a problem with the flap from.....flapping off. I have never had the flap catch on something to pull it open. It has been opened and closed well over a hundred time from all the way shut to all the way open and there are no sings of cracking.
I highly recommend this cover!
Other Thoughts: As stated in the description, it is a case/cover. No where does it claim to be a stand or have a magnetic cover. Do not give it a con or take an egg off for it not being what you wanted it to be. It doesn't keep my coffee warm but it doesn't say it would either.
The cover fits snug enough that you could put it on a stand and still throw in a pouch or just you bag, glove compartment or jacket.
I didn't buy it here. Wish I would have because I paid $30 for mine.
I've been using ASUS since Intel's Pentium was wearing diapers. This is another great product from ASUS, let alone the Nexus 7. Google did a good job asking ASUS to make it.
Pros: Solid build, quite, modular, 80 Plus Silver certified, etc...
7 YEAR WARRANTY!!!
Cons: Bags could be of better quality...
Other Thoughts: Replaced an OCZ after dying not long after the 3 year warranty (seems common). Love the modular and part of why I spent extra on it!
Some don't seem to mention that this comes with two bags! One that the PSU was in and the other for the cables you won't need. The cable bag is square and doesn't completely seal as it is a flap closure. The velvet bag is a draw string but only velvet on the outside.
Yes DOA sucks and having it die early sucks but it does come with a 7-year warranty! Not every single electronic device comes out of the box 100%. And for some of you that have RMAd more than once, ya might want to check your electrical connections. Power strips die too.
