Pros: Fast CPU - as always, a great AMD fast quad processor.
Cons: I have used literally THOUSDANDS of AMD processors over the years. Never have I received an OEM cooler that has sounded like a hair dryer on high or a dust buster. I double-checked all the MB settings to see if I had overlooked something. Nope. So went to the locker to pull out an older heatpipe AMD cooler that is substantially quieter. And, hey btw, where's my WRAITH COOLER?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Yellow(AUV128-32G-RBY)
Pros: I'm a lead tech and work on 8 to 10 machines a day. I carry three of these drives in my jeans pocket all the time as all my working programs and scanners are on these drives. All day long they come out of my pocket, get plugged into machines, and go back in my pocket. I am constantly updating my software so the reading and writing is constant. After months and months of this daily use they are all going strong. I have not tested the read/write speeds because, most of the time, the ports I plug into are USB 2.0. They're also light, which makes them easy to carry, and the slider is no nonsense. The case is a little light and the top portion of the rounded end tends to crack, but nothing a little superglue doesn't take care of. My Sandisks could not stand up to this kind of use; they generally fail. So I was happy to find these Adata drives at a price point I really like.
Cons: The plastic case tends to be a little light, and after long time use they can separate and the top portion on the rounded end can crack. Superglue takes care of these issues.
Other Thoughts: These probably don't have the fastest read/write specs, but they are hearty and they keep working day after day with constant use. When you have large amounts of data to move, like say a 20GB folder, they tend to warm up and slow down. But doing that sort of transfer is rare, so I can live with that too.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I replaced an older LG dual core phone with this Asus phone. I'm a longtime computer guy so have used Asus products for a long time now. I almost didn't order it because of the negative reviews on here. They talk about short battery life; I probably am not the heavy user these people are, but I have run it for a couple of days and still have three quarters battery life left - it's all about power settings. Sound is good, not tinny like some say. Network connection is excellent, 4G web browsing is excellent, Bluetooth connectivity is excellent. You know what? - I love this phone!
Cons: I have nothing bad to say about this phone so far, and am pretty confident I won't down the road.
Other Thoughts: I am surrounded by people that spend $700 to $1000 for Iphones and Samsungs and not one of them has not been impressed by my Asus at $200. For those that read these negative reviews on here - ignore them. This is a very well-built product with more capabilities than the average person will ever need. I'm a tech guy and days later I'm still learning cool features and software this phone has packed into it. If you're hesitant, add the extended warranty.READ FULL REVIEW
