Pros: Cheap with nice specs for the cost.
Light but not too much so.
Google Play preinstalled and no bloatware included.
Capable of playing most video.
Cons: Battery life isn't particularly good but that's to be expected in this price range.
Not powerful enough to play some HD video, especially many 10 bit encodes. (Means I can't watch quite a few recent fansubbed anime releases.)
Randomly deletes the entire contents of my SD card sometimes, seems more likely to happen after removing it while charging. This is a pretty big con considering how slow the transfer speed is to a class 4 SD card.
It also freezes on occasion, requiring a full restart.
The instruction manual is in the expected Engrish but the only thing you really need to read (first and average charge times) is understandable.
Other Thoughts: Seems like a worthwhile buy if you're lucky enough to get a functional one, though I definitely would've went for a more powerful and reliable tablet if I had the cash at the time.
Might be a good choice for children, given that it's not too big a hit to the wallet if broken.
If you already own this tablet I highly recommend you not remove/insert an SD card while the tablet is on, even in standby to avoid data loss.
I give it 4 stars because despite having more cons than I expected of a cheap Chinese product, they still can be worked around if you're willing to compromise to save some money.
Pros: Most powerful netbook available now, actually better than my old Toshiba laptop it replaced.
Can be overclocked to a degree, depending on what RAM you're using.
Very bright, clear screen.
Decent gaming performance using low graphics settings, Definitely not replacing my desktop but nice to be able to play a bit of WoW or Mass Effect away from home.
Due to the dual core CPU, handles multitasking quite well, without the sketchy performance older/cheaper netbooks can have.
1080p playback is excellent even at stock clock speed.
Cons: Quality for the camera is quite low, but that's not something I look for in a netbook anyway.
Touchpad is terribly annoying if left on while typing. Wouldn't have been so bad if it was recessed slightly but that's not the case. I just keep it disabled.
Other Thoughts: Overclocks better than I hoped. Only program I find that works with it is OC Tuner after a compatibility workaround, which modifies the FSB speed since the multiplier is locked at 12.
Goes to around 1.85GHz with the stock 800MHz ram, and maxes around 1.97GHz stable with the 667MHz ram I upgraded to.
Quite nice, especially after switching from a laptop that I had no success with in overclocking.
This review is from: Sony Premium White Headphones with Gold Plated Connector (MDR-EX56LP/Whi)
Pros: Excellent sound quality.
Much less than I paid at Walmart for an identical black pair.
Didn't break after a couple months of abuse like cheaper kinds do. (Most don't last long from being wrapped around my mp3 player, but these handle it and still work like new.)
Cons: None so far, though I wish I bought my other pair from Newegg in the first place to save a bit of cash.
Other Thoughts: I've seen at least one comment regarding the cord lengths being 'lopsided.' This is not a design fault, it is a feature. The right earphone loops around behind your neck so you have less cord dangling in front of you.
Please don't bash this product because of your ignorance. It definitely doesn't deserve a 1 egg review just because you couldn't think to loop the cord behind your neck.
