This review is from: Hisense Sero 7 PRO M470BSA 7.0" Touchscreen Android Tablet NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU 1.30Ghz, 1GB Memory, 8GB Internal Storage, Micro SD card slot, Mini HDMI Out, NFC, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
Pros: For the features at that price point, this is an extremely good value. After rooting this device, the hardware starts to shine.
Before rooting, it was a great device for the first half year or so.
The textured back is a plus compared to the Nexus 7 it was based on.
Cons: Before rooting after the first half year, it starts to exhibit a lot of slowdown. There are no more updates from the manufacturer.
Even after rooting, there are some quirks to the machine. Lag at random points (luckily short) even when it is used to play music stored on external memory. This also occurred, but more frequently before rooting and installing custom ROM.
A little heavy, but not enough to be a dealbreaker.
Other Thoughts: Battery could be better, but no complaints there as I can get through a day on a charge.
Best to root this device after confirming that there are no issues caused during shipping.
Other Thoughts: I do not own the Rosewill model of this battery, but I have recently purchased one that is exactly like this one minus the branding. The other I got was made by Anker labeled with 15,000 mAh, but probably has about 11,000 something after voltage conversion. That one is slightly more expensive, but not by a significant amount if you get it on sale.
Overall, I haven't used that one long enough to give any solid opinion on it other than it has been great so far.
Pros: It is very easy to configure and is quite quick after the firmware is updated to the latest one from the manufacturer. I have not installed DD-WRT on it yet, but will do so in the future when the need arises. I bought it initially to replace an old WRT54G which was having trouble with the wireless.
Cons: The initial firmware is a bit tough to navigate and slow too. The lights are a tad too bright for me when I was test running it. After setting things up and putting router away, it's not a big concern anymore.
Other Thoughts: I have not utilized the USB functions of the device due to space issues at the moment. I have since disabled them to make it as efficient as possible.READ FULL REVIEW
