Pros: Inexpensive, Full version of Windows 8 (upgradeable to 8.1 in the store for free) responsive and nice looking screen, a really nice tablet for the money but make sure you do the setup right the first time! (See Other Thoughts Below)
Cons: Setup and updating is a bit of a pain, make one mistake and you have a brick, not sure if its so much the tablet as it is the software and drivers but you definitely have to do things in the correct order to end up a fully updated and working tablet.
Other Thoughts: I had to setup two of these, the first one went horribly wrong but i learned from it, and hopefully you read this before doing it yourself! Plug it in for this entire process... First and foremost after you turn it on and get logged into your Microsoft Account and you can get to the desktop run Asus LiveUpdate, FIRST. It will either ask you to update the LiveUpdate program when you go to the desktop and it first loads or when you open it. Allow LiveUpdate to get its update and restart. Then run the Asus LiveUpdate and do the BIOS update FIRST!! After thats done, it will reboot in the process, then do the other update thats available in Asus LiveUpdate and restart the tablet again. Now that you have those done run Windows Update and get the updates done, around 112 of them, do them one at a time, if you try to do more then one at a time it will just fail and you will be stuck in reverting changes from a failed update for most of a day, more on that in a second. The once each update is done, and you rebooted it after each update go to the Store and the first thing you see is Windows 8.1, tap on it and get it installed it will step you through the process. After 8.1 is setup and your back to the desktop check for updates again, i had 14 more to do. Now your ready to install apps and software and actually use it, took me almost an entire day to set the second one up slowly and carefully. So what happens if you don't do it right? The first one i setup i told it to do the 112 updates, it downloaded and installed then asked to reboot, after the reboot it was stuck saying the updates failed and its reverting changes, it was there for about 16 hours and a dozen auto reboots!! I read some reviews online that said don't do the bios update so after the revert eventually suceeded i did the updates slowly one at a time but then after the update to Windows 8.1 my display was unresponsive and glitchy. I had to hook up a keyboard via an OTG cable and do a Windows Reset back to Windows 8.0, then installed the Bios and update from Asus LiveUpdate, then all the Windows Updates again, and then Windows 8.1, it now works great but took about 60 hours to complete... Ughh Thats another thing if it fails you CAN NOT recover without a USB keyboard! The bluetooth keyboard i paired was unresponsive during boot to use F9 to get to the recovery. I finally have two working tablets after about 2 1/2 days work. Don't expect it to be perfect out of the box, its a long process to update it and get it right, but its worth the effort for the cost vs features!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Affordable, Fast, Reliable... They even include a download of Acronis True Image Home for migration.
Cons: None so far...
Other Thoughts: I have bought a few of these now for boot drives and laptop upgrades. While not the biggest SSD on the market its definitely a great drive for the money. Speeds up even older systems by eliminating the HDD lag.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Universal Operator-style Wired Headset 3.5mm -black
Pros: Cheap, works ok.
Cons: I knocked one egg off because the audio from the speaker is a little low for me, compared to other wired headsets i have plugged into my phone this one seems weak. The mic audio was good from all that i have talked to, and it seems to work ok otherwise.
Other Thoughts: For the price i cant complain too much, its a cheap headset that i might only get a half year out of before it gets broken and replaced again. But if you have some hearing loss just be aware that the speaker volume isnt that loud.READ FULL REVIEW
