Pros: The price is right. Sure, there are better Android tablets out there, but this is a fabulous entry level Android tablet at a great price. It has a clean, stock build of Android. It has access to the full Google Play store, and every app I've tried has worked fine, though that is a very small subset of the hundreds of thousands of apps on the Play store. Music sounds fabulous through my moderately expensive Klipsch headphones, and it identifies the in-line headphones mic which works great with VoIP apps. (It also has a built-in mic.) MicroSDHC/microSDXC slot is fabulous! You can expand the storage at a fair and reasonable price instead of getting price gouged and skewered to add another 16, 32, or 64 GB of storage. Battery life varies extensively with usage and the duration the screen is on, but for my usage, I'm always getting over a day of use before recharging.
Cons: No indicator light to flash at you when you receive new email, or the battery is low, etc.
Other Thoughts: The built-in speaker is functional, but nothing to get excited about. It only does 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi; it does not support 5 GHz Wi-Fi. It fits in my pocket, but it is not the most comfortable to keep in my pocket when I'm sitting.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've had this just over 2 months, and it is still running great. Update worked without a glitch. Decent GUI. Lots of options to set. Good range on wireless, and the connections are solid within its range. Simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz operation lets my newer devices connect at 5 GHz without leaving behind my older devices that still only do 2.4 GHz.
Cons: Runs a little warm.
Other Thoughts: I hope it lasts a good long time as 802.11ac becomes more of common standard with new devices.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: If you have an older case that doesn't have USB3 ports up front, and you have a newer motherboard with the 20 pin USB3 pin header, this is a quick and easy way to make use of the USB3 ports up front.
Cons: It occupies a 3.5" bay and may not blend smoothly with how the rest of your case looks.
Other Thoughts: I haven't tried mounting any 2.5" drives in it. It looks like if you have 2 of the 20 pin USB3 pin headers on your motherboard, you could get 2 of these and consolidate all 4 ports into a single 3.5" bay.READ FULL REVIEW
