Showing Results: Most Recent
Pros: Big Screen
Clear and Crispy display
Good battery life
Dual SIM (one is MicroSIM, the other is full size SIM)
Cons: Wi-Fi is not 802.11ac, the specification is wrong, I only saw my router 2.4Ghz AP, no 5Ghz AP.
VLC cannot handle 1080p movie. 720p is OK
Only 4GB Internal storage (1.8GB available)
Other Thoughts: For $59.99. Cons I mentioned can be ignored. So I give 5 stars.
I put 32GB MicroSD inside, formatted as FAT32.
Pros: USB3.0 is working perfectly.
Good design idea.
Metal case looks good
Cons: SATA port does not work at all, I prepare 2 hard drives to test this little device, One is 500GB regular mechanical drive (NTFS formatted already) The other is 240 SSD (NFTS formatted already) Neither can be recognized in Windows OS. (Fatal hardware initialization error) They should be both recognized immediately, because I formatted them already. through USB3.0, both are working well.
Other Thoughts: Half buyers complains the same issue, so I want to take the 2nd chance to replace it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage
Pros: Very small.
Use very little electricity.
cost nothing on the bill.
Run Windows 8.1(64bit) and Windows 10(64bit).
No issue to playback 1080p and BlueRay (5.1) movie.
Using a 2.5 inch 1TB Toshiba regular drive on USB3.0 port without additional power supply.
Cons: 5V/3A DC Adapter is special. I tried all other 5V (2A-4A) adapter. None of them can make it stable running. 5V battery bank, the same story.
So I guess the 5V/3A DC adapter from the box might be ~6V. not 5V. because when I use iPAD 5.2V/2.1A DC adapter, it seems better than others.
Heat sink is too small, it feels hot with my hand on it. LIVA X has larger and better heat sink.
LIVA X BOX is also designed much better than LIVA.
WIFI and Bluetooth is weak. not sure it is card itself or antenna issue.
Other Thoughts: I still gave it 5 stars, because it is really unique, as running Windows 10 modern OS and device size, it is hardly to find the similar product on the market.
Especially ECS tried 5V DC driven design. the same as raspberry pi but with Intel Processor. that is something really worth more than 5 stars.
