Pros: This tablet has the Android operating system and access to the Google play store. It has access to thousands of applications. You can link it to your Google account, just as you would your Android based phones. For kids and games, this MIGHT be ok. Although the battery only lasts for a few hours if you are playing games. A young child might not mind the cons.
Cons: The battery life is pretty horrible on this device. I can unplug it from the charger at 100% and it immediately will drop to 97%. Within minutes of using it, it will drop to 95% and below. Then it's just a few hours of use before it's at 0%. I left it on overnight with a 70% charge and it died by the next morning, with no apps left open.
It is horribly slow. Don't expect to switch between apps or even open apps very fast. The startup time is also extremely slow. You can barely use the Facebook app on this device. Anything that requires a lot of graphics or videos isn't going to work very well. My daughter had to keep getting out of Minecraft and back in, because it would slow down to a crawl.
The screen is not very crisp and it almost hurts my eyes to look at it. In the dark it's better, but it's almost impossible to look at under fluorescent lighting. There is so much glare that you can barely see the screen. I have to keep moving my head back and forth to see.
All-in-all, I would not purchase this tablet for myself. My 9 year old daughter doesn't even like it.
Other Thoughts: I had high expectations for this tablet, maybe because it was sent to me for a product review. I was actually shocked at how bad it is. If you want to purchase a cheap tablet for a kid, this one might be ok, but don't expect much out of it.
The only reason that I didn't give it a 1 egg is because it actually powers on and functions (just slowly).
Pros: Very nice looking motherboard, easy to install, had no problems during installation or configuring. I used an i5 processor and 16gb of RAM. I already had a video card, so I was good to go. I also used the auto-overclock, which was very simple. I went with a bigger and better CPU cooling fan, just to make sure it stays cool. I didn't bother to use the disc that came with the motherboard. I just got my drivers directly from the website to ensure that I had the newest ones. I definitely recommend this to anyone that wants a to invest in a good motherboard.
Cons: None. I had zero problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-737HRE N300 High Power Easy-N-Range Extender
Pros: I used this to extend the range of my wireless signal in my living room. The router is down the hall, in a bedroom. It seems to work well for my needs. It does indeed extend the signal, as it says. I have had a few issues with disconnect, but not a big deal. It is easy to program and is easily plugged into any wall socket.
Cons: A few random disconnects, but nothing too bad. Speed doesn't seem to be the same as direct connect to the router.READ FULL REVIEW
