eForCity Black Leather Pouch Case With Stand Skin Cover+Stylus Pen For B&N Nook Color
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Not perfect, But I Bought a Replacement 05/12/2014

This review is from: eForCity Black Leather Pouch Case With Stand Skin Cover+Stylus Pen For B&N Nook Color

Pros: Fits very snug because it is specifically designed for a Nook Color or Tablet. The price is no more expensive than generic 7" covers/cases that don't fit well. It looks very smart when closed.

Cons: This is actually the 2nd one of these I have purchased. In the comment I made when I purchased the 1st one, I noted the possibility that the stitching may not last, but that did not turn out to be a problem. What happened is the material that formed the hinges wore and cracked, revealing the woven material that reinforces the joint material. I expected this reinforcing would tear shortly, so I decided to buy an exact replacement.
The prop works only in a portrait orientation so things get awkward if you are watching video in landscape orientation.

Other Thoughts: The problem with the hinge material caused me to take 1 egg off the rating. Good fit, good price. A few colors other than black are offered but did not interest me.

WD BLACK SERIES WD3003FZEX 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works - after a struggle.

Cons: I notice most of the reviews here are for smaller WD 1T and 2T drives. To access the full volume of 293G of a 3T, you need a motherboard with a UEFI BIOS. Not all MBs currently sold even have this feature. Then you need to figure how to get the MB to install Windows 7 or 8 from your install media which is a trick in itself. I found UEFI Bootable Flash Drive - Create in Windows at WindowsEightForums the most helpful of more than 7 articles I looked at because their procedure worked and the rest were missing key details. My brother asked me to replace a Seagate 2T drive in his computer with this and he really got unhappy when I revealed he needed a new motherboard to access the full volume.

Other Thoughts: Windows XP64, Windows 7 & 8 with motherboards that use MBR instead of UEFI are happy with drives up to 2T. Why not just buy a 2T if you can't access the upper 30%?

PROSCAN PLT7044K 7 Inch Android Tablet, Capacitive Touch Screen, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, With Case and Keyboard Bundle
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs The Keyboard/Case is the biggest attraction here 02/22/2014

This review is from: PROSCAN PLT7044K 7 Inch Android Tablet, Capacitive Touch Screen, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, With Case and Keyboard Bundle

Pros: It comes with a detachable keyboard/case combo so you won't be frustrated with a virtual keyboard or trying to poke items items that are too close on the screen. Thus you can use your finger & the touch screen like a mouse with the rest of the input from the keyboard. The case itself (even if you aren't interested in the keyboard) is better than most. Instruction manual is somewhat better than other cheap tablets.

Cons: It is slow and on mine the speaker is not very loud. There is a higher learning curve on this. It isn't the "unpack, turn on, go direct to an app store" process that many buyers expect. You have to find several key apps on the Net, download them to a PC and then sideload them to the unit and then install them. Google Play and other apps such as Adobe Reader, ScummVM, Opera can be found and installed manually this way. Once this done, the unit acts more friendly. Manual specifically states that the unit can not be charged through the USB micro port (keyboard uses that). Charging unit uses a needle like plug instead of a Mini RCA or Micro USB.

Other Thoughts: You will need a USB Male A to USB Micro Male cable to connect to a PC which is included with other tablets as part of the charging unit. When plugged into a PC, the tablet is IDed as a single media device rather than removable media (internal & external flash drives). The apps included do not refer to the internal flash memory and external micro SD card uniformly so novice users may be confused where their data is being stored. The keyboard/case can be used on other 7in tablets like a Polaroid PMID705. and it can be found for sale separately
