This review is from: Kocaso 726A Android 4.0 OS Netbook w/ Case & Mouse - 1.2Ghz, 1G DDR3
Pros: Its an android tablet, its fast, snappy! its also cute-sized and TINY! I must have spent 40 minutes gushing how super adorable this little thing is. I'd chance its child sized as everything is super close together. If you need a netbook that is so portable and with the foot print like a small paperback novel, this is you're device! its very responsive, takes SD cards well and its included mouse works rather well and the neoprene carry case is very sharp. Its something I'd take to a convention or something cause its so portable. Lid opens very stiffly which is something I personally like in a netbook. Its oodles faster then other netbooks I've used in the past and this one was a quarter of its price. It runs on a ARM chip inside so you know its going to work like a nice cellphone at least. Typing with one hand is rather comfortable. Key weight is very light and its like using an itty bitty laptop.
Cons: No touch screen, you'd know this if you noticed its not mentioned anywhere, but that's not why I gave it low eggs. The unit I got is absolutely saturated with rows of dead pixels and saturated with mini specks of dead pixels, also for some reason there is a upside down red capital M in a dot matrix like pattern PRINTED on the screen, its located in the upper right quadrant of the screen... I checked to see if it were a sticker, and it wasn't. Using light refection I can see its behind the screen when the units turned off. I am disappointed in this. So QA may seem a bit down at the Kocaso Plant, so be sure to check your unit thoroughly. Power it on and off a few times after giving it a full charge.
Other Thoughts: I was stuck between getting a tablet and a keyboard attachment or this, which felt more win as I like using keys. I wanted it for learning Andriod OS and it does include Icecream sandwhich at the time this reveiw was done. The setup is well put together and it runs everything I've thrown at it Driod app wise so its not a complete waste. I've Req'd an RMA VIA Neweggs service at the time of writing this. Funny note, there is a little sticker on the bottom of this netbook/tablet thingy labled "QC PASS". This seems rather ironic considering the faults with this unit. The unit was made December 2012 according to the other sticker.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: It works. High data rate transfer. Looks cool in my spare HDD cage. Uses less power.
Pay attention musicians this next part is for you. This handles realtime disk streaming incredibly well. Its why I got it.. I know its silly to use an SSD for disk streaming and Sample access but really it does put the Hard drive to shame in performance. I plan to get another for my boot drive install.
Cons: I've heard rumor you shouldn't defrag... It doesn't make breakfast so I think considering all the positives it provides I can overlook this.
Other Thoughts: It makes my cohorts jelly that its installed on my laptop. For musicians who need to access large stores of data quickly, this will help hurry your load times. Worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RTK-045M 45-Piece Magnetic Computer Tool Kit
Pros: What a great little kit! I added some laptop screws into its little container and now its my final solution to computer problems. There are a few odd tools I questioned why they are there but I guess some environments or situations would warrant them. Lots of handy things. Serviced my laptop with it and everything went smoothly! Everything's appropriately sized and made for working on a computer.
Cons: I for some reason didn't buy this sooner. That's the only con.... Oh and its Magnetic but you knew this from the product description, the non ferrous one is like another 10$, but its a weak magnetic, so its ideal for getting screws in case you say, spontaneously have a seizure while putting a computer together or your klutzy lover stumbles into you while you're performing open drive surgery/SSD installation... Go ahead and buy this. Stop reading and click the buy button. SRSLY! STAAAAAAAAAHP! Go buy eet!
Other Thoughts: My dry sense of humor aside, this is a great kit for some one working IT, just nab a few RJ-45's and snap your pinchy terminator and you're set for most IT tasks, plus the handsome case, as inexpensively made as it is, is still a show stopper for being pretty and keeping your tools organized. In all I used to have a few nearly rusted screwdrivers and a pair of pliers.... Yeah it was about time I bought something more nice and appropriate for what I do and a pillbox of screws, but this kit prepares me for jobs that even I never considered before owning it to do. At least it works and is practical. From picking apart HDDs to playing operation while trying to extract a ramchip next to a ominously humming knockback transformer you'll be prepared with what this kit has to offer.READ FULL REVIEW
