Pros: *CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP
*Solid build quality - doesn't feel like if you stepped on it, it'd be toast.
*Entry level SSD performance still runs rings around HDDs
*Boots my test rig in less than 22 seconds. Down from 1 minute with the 1TB HDD it replaced. Good stuff.
Cons: *None so far. Reads & Writes are kinda low but for the cost it's still worth it.
Other Thoughts: Crystal Disk Mark 219.6MB/s Read 67.92MB/s Write
AS SSD 201MB/s Read 51.78MB/s Write
Transferred a 2.6GB file in just 6 seconds. So not bad. Get It!!
This review is from: Boxed Intel Compute Stick STCK1A32WFCR, Single Pack(Win 8.1)
Pros: *It's small size obviously.
*Full Windows 8.1 OS installed & PC Bios
*Super quick setup, even shorter up and running time than usual
*It's a full OS.. so the sky is the limit for what we want to use it for
Cons: *USB Power on an LCD TV is not enough to power the ICS. We plugged it into the USB port on our Vizio 42inch LCD TV in our hallway and encountered boot failures. Basically you'll see the start up circle and Windows icon then blue screen of death. Reboot and the system will then take you to the Repair / Recovery screen where things are never repaired. So after 30 minutes of thinking we got a defective device, we decided to find dedicated power and hooked it to a smaller ViewSonic 24in monitor. System booted right up! So if you encounter boot problems find more power first, don't assume you got a bum device.
Other Thoughts: Performance is snappy as well. You'll be pleasantly surprised. This is great alternative for users who just need a basic desktop and nothing more. Works great, very very impressed and would consider purchasing another for home use. This one will be at work as our support / status kiosk. Just get it... it's great!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Aluratek Black ABH04FB Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headphones
Pros: *Lightweight Yet Well Constructed
*Sharp / Elegant design. It looks like you paid more!
*Battery life is very impressive. Est. 24 Hrs of continuous use
*Very easy pairing with Android Tablets & Phones
*Sound Quality is overall very good. Gives great bass, good mids & decent highs. If you are not an audio snob you'll really like these
*Using a Rocket Fish Bluetooth Adapter I get every bit of 30 ft range while at work.
Cons: *You'll put in some work getting these to initially pair with a Windows 7 or 8 based PC. Where as on an Android device I'd be paired and using in under 30 seconds. You'll spend at least 10 to 15 min finding drivers, waiting on Windows Update to get things working. But once drivers installed and configured everything works great.
Other Thoughts: For some reason, sound doesn't sound that great on my HTC One M7 phone. Over my 2012 & 2013 Nexus 7 tablets, sound is much better. My Windows 7 PC along with my Windows 8.1 Tablet / PC also sounds great.
*Note - when pairing with your Windows PC the utility may say that it is still trying to connect. Ignore that and close because it more than likely already is. If your volume icon shows you have speakers it's working. I don't think the built in Windows utility can properly read these headphones. Several times while trying to re-establish a connection I sat for several minutes not realizing that the headphones were already connected.
Overall, for my first pair of headphones I'm very very pleased and would recommend these to anyone who wants a cost effective pair of bluetooth headphones.
