Pros: This is a great price with a rebate. It works excellent for me. currently using as a tv remote and streamer with chromecast. and some light internet use ect.
very nice screen, with nice colors. dual core processor keeps it snappy. can add up to 32GB SD card to expand storage for more video's, pictures ect...
Cons: short 4hr battery life is used continuously.
very small 4gb storage / with only like 1.5gb avail.
you, can add 32gb sd card but cannot put apps on it unless you root the device.
low megapixel camera.
came with a incorrect upc code that wouldn't work with the rebate, however neweggs excellent customer service solved my issue to my satisfaction as usual.
despite these drawbacks I really can't subtract a star at this discounted price.
Other Thoughts: very suprised at how nice this is for the price. I was expecting it to be just barely get by. but mine looked brand new and so far has had zero issues. is fast, fun to use. Im certainly very satisfied with this purchase. still can't believe how inexpensive it was. sweet deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was free after rebate. Works on win 8.1. Has multimedia features.
Cons: My device has somehow lost the ability to use most of the characters above the numbers like the @ sign for instance...which is kinda important in this day and age. They just stopped working after a few uses.
Also it's just not a very comfortable keyboard. I find myself continuously hitting additional keys and having to backspace them out. Which I never have to do on other keyboards. Maybe the keys are too sensitive so if you just brush them it types. Where others require a full keypress. Would be a pain for everyday use.
Other Thoughts: I gave it two stars because despite the problems.. If you can get it on sale and with a rebate for next to nothing it works as a backup keyboard in a pinch.
And maybe my bad keyboard was just bad luck on my part.
I wouldn't recommend as a main keyboard though as I found it tedious. Others may not be as demanding.
Didn't bother burdening newegg with the return given the price.
Pros: it connects.. finally
Cons: I have to go with only 1 star due to a few shady things about this company and the packaging / condition of the devices.
1) First item I received was used and had scratches on the back chips in the plastic near the lcd and fingerprint smudges on the top.. the packaging was crumbled up, all the twisty ties were undone and just tossed in the box.. This was definatly a USED item repackaged and sold as NEW. very shady. so, I sent it back.
2) The "new" one came. although not as bad the packaging on the first, it also did not look new. nothing was shrinkwrapped, there was no plastic protective tape/sheet over the item like unboxing video's show. it had a lot of room to bounce around. it was missing at least one piece of accompanying literature that was shown in the other videos.
also the password would not work and i could not log in to the router and join the network (i tried from several devices).
I noticed the ssid was slightly different then what was listed on the back.
so i did a restore.. the SSID changed to same as on the back and the password then worked.
which tells me someone else already owned this and had changed the password and SSID. so again, this one was NOT NEW either. I have not decided if this one is going back as well. just on principle. I got it for really cheap though so I may just keep it.
lastly, keep in mind this uses WiMax. not sprint 4g LTE.. The Wimax network is scheduled to shut down in late 2014/2015 so when that happens.. this item will be a door stop. so expect maybe a year out of it.
Ill let the other posters cover the companies shady billing practices. needless to say Id use an old prepaid card lying around that has like a dollar on it when you setup your account so you don't get phantom charges or charges from items they pre selected for you.
Other Thoughts: mind you I don't fault newegg. I think they are told the items are new... I blame freedompop.
so i closing...
The item you receive may not be new but may be refurbished or even just a used return they threw in a box when the person figured out they didn't get a signal. prob manufactured over a year ago.
The network will be shut down in a year or so. and it will become a brick unless freedompop offers you an upgrade path.
You may get charges for your free service.so don't use your no limit amex to link to the account.
read up on this company first and any complaints.
ONLY buy at a deep discount price if you really want it for a year or so.
