This review is from: Archos - 70 Internet Tablet - 8GB Running Google ANDROID + Wi-Fi (501582)
Pros: *Flat and light - fits in my jeans back pocket
*no Objective C running on this thing
Cons: *Had to install ArcTools to get the Android market working (no rooting necessary) - Archos market was not legitimate for me
*No Hulu support as of yet, and its not really worth my time to hack it
*Its the outdated Android
*HDMI initial connection was flaky during the short time I tried it out, but it could be the Visio TV
Other Thoughts: More of a toy than a computer
I will use it like an eReader
It looks like a big cell phone
I probably won't use it that much, but time will tell
If you want a tablet computer the Acer Iconia W500 is a bargain
Cons: Caused bad indexes on my Western Digital, when I put it into my desktop chkdsk fixed it (thank goodness).
There website is under construction... still... months later. Maybe they're busy fixing buggy SATA controllers?- just don't know.
Other Thoughts: I would not use this as a backup as when I needed the backup it got hosed. Spend a couple more dollars backing up your important data! Definitely a bad experience with this company.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AZiO BTD-V201 USB 2.0 Micro Bluetooth Adapter
Pros: Well I have to say I am impressed using this at about 200+ feet through a wall! Of course I tested this with another Class 1 Bluetooth Module, a surface mount module- model number RN-41-SM configured for 20 dBm (maximum) output power.
This installs automatically in under one minute using M$ Bluetooth Drivers on Windows 7 x64.
Cons: its made in china but what isnt these days
Other Thoughts: I now have an excuse to build a Bluetooth remote control helicopter, seeing as the range on this connected to my laptop will be much better than my phone.
The long range was a good improvement over the cirago BTA-3210 Class 2 BT dongle, which also works great with good range.
In order to get the range spec of your device: use class 1 devices with other class 1 devices, like how wireless n routers should be used with wireless n adapters to get the specified range and throughput. Alternatively said don't expect 100 meter range if you're using a class 2 device at either end!
