This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC (DVD Case)
Pros: Works reliably in the background, making daily incremental backups across my home network.
Cons: Need a separate license (copy) for each machine, unlike in the earlier days of True Image.
Other Thoughts: When I read this terrible reviews, I really can't understand why people have so much difficulty with True Image. I've used it or years, upgrading regularly, and now use 3 copies of TI2014. I don't try anything exotic - backing up 3 PC's over my home network, scheduled daily, including automatic validation. Never tried the "Secure Zone", "Try & Decide", or cloud features, just image backup and restore, image mounting, and file browsing. I have rarely had a problem caused by True Image. In those rare cases, if an image fails to restore, I have several daily and weekly previous backups to fall back on.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acronis True Image 2013
Pros: Works reliably and automatically, making an incremental image backup of my Win8 desktop over the network everyday. I can restore any day's image or individual files easily. After a backup, TI e-mails a status report to me so I know if there has been a problem.
Cons: None that I've seen. New versions of True Image must be activated to a single PC, whereas in earlier versions, I could use it on any and all PC's in my home.
Other Thoughts: I've used Acronis True Image for nearly 10 years, and it has gotten better and more reliable with each new version. So far, with TI 2013, I've had no issues at all. I find that this is all I need for backups, other than offsite (I make daily backups of my data files to Skydrive.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: full HD (1920 x 1200) resolution, great screen/colors, quad core tegra 3, Android Jelly Bean 4.1, quality build and feel, big price advantage over competition
Cons: somewhat slower 3D graphics performance compared to low resolution competitors
Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with the Iconia A700, and I own a Nexus 7 for comparison. The negative reviews seem to be a result of the tablet shipping with ICS and some bugs. But mine offered an update to JB immediately after I powered it up. After the update, I have found no screen touch issues, no heat problems, and very stable operations. I ran Nenamark 2 to test 3D responsiveness, stability and heat compared to my Nexus 7. The A700's score was about 60% of that of the Nexus 7, which makes sense in that both have the Tegra 3, and the A700 is pushing more than twice as many pixels. The Nexus 7's max temp after 10 minutes was 45C, and the A700 reached 49C.READ FULL REVIEW
