EVGA TEGRA NOTE 7 Tablet - 16GB Flash, 1GB RAM Quad Core NVIDIA Tegra 4
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Product broke shortly after 1 year of use 12/14/2016

This review is from: EVGA TEGRA NOTE 7 Tablet - 16GB Flash, 1GB RAM Quad Core NVIDIA Tegra 4

Pros: It was a great tablet while it lasted,

Cons: You can't repair it, you can't find any parts for it.

Other Thoughts: Even if you take care of this it will still break. Terrible product, I went back to a different brand that is mainstream. Last time I choose EVGA for tablets. Just terrible waste of $200 for a 14 months of use. My advice is choose a mainsteam tablet that you can source parts for if it breaks instead of getting the run around from the manufacturer.

Bottom line is no excuse is good enough after a tablet breaks shortly after the warranty. I ended up giving this broken thing away. Support was useless. Here's you improve EVGA, source parts. Provide out of warranty support for the item if you know it breaks after a year.

BUFFALO LS210D0201 2TB LinkStation 210 NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server

4 out of 5 eggs Great buffalo product, poor quality seagate hard drive 11/25/2016

This review is from: BUFFALO LS210D0201 2TB LinkStation 210 NAS Personal Cloud Storage and Media Server

Pros: I love Buffalo's easy to setup tools and menu. You can create folders and gain web access.

Cons: You are getting deducted 1 egg because you are using a poor drive called seagate. These drives are not reliable. Stop selling junk to customers it makes your company look bad. When a drive fails 4 months after the warranty ends that is a good hint not to sell them. Solution below incase you want to fix your drive.

Other Thoughts: How to fix this device if it gives you the 7 red blinking lights of death which means the hard drive has died, you have 2 options one option is to buy an identical one, pop it open, clone the hard drive and then put in the new drive back in the unit. The other option is to take a LS421DE (diskless nas) backup the data before you do this and make sure its in a raid one configuration and make sure its factory default new. Pull one of the disks out and put in a new one, rebuild the array, then pull that drive out and stick it in this unit. The unit will actually boot, then you can download the ls firmware update tool from buffalo's site and flash it to the latest firmware and then you reset it back to factory settings. I had to do this for a customer recently and used a 1TB WD Black drive (5 year warranty) to get him working again.

I really hope this helps anyone affected incase their hard drive fails, because the unit itself is still good. The problem is buffalo doesn't develop tools to fix this on the consumer side. The operating system is literally stored on the drive so once it fails and you pop in a new drive unformatted with no data it will just blink red lights all day saying it either does not detect a drive or it does not see any operating system.

5 out of 5 eggs Premier = Great Shipping 10/03/2016

This review is from: Newegg Premier 12 Month Membership

Pros: If you spend more than 1k a year on newegg, this is perfect for you. On average I spend around $8k-9k and I really get the value on the shipping discounts and super fast shipping times.

Cons: I think they should give premier members more discounts when it comes to certain products. For example I purchased memory for $53 and that same memory is $71 6 months later. Give premier member better pricing and specials. You give everyone daily specials who don't pay for the premier service. Allow the member to get pricing for the same item 6 months later.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this for the shipping discounts and times. Please understand not to have any expectations outside of the shipping value
