ASUS Google Nexus 7 FHD (2013) Android Tablet -  2GB RAM Quad-Core CPU 16GB Flash (Wi-Fi Only)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I recently purchased the original Nexus 7 a day or two before this newer version was released. I promptly returned the original for this and I'm so glad I did.

It's extremely responsive. Before, when switching to the Task Manager screen it took maybe 1-2 seconds. Now, with this model, it's instant. I can play all games I want to, and have multiple things going at once with no problem, so far.

It doesn't come with any bloated apps (unless you consider google apps like Maps and Hangouts useless) and even with the 16 Gb model I feel like I have quite a lot of room to play with. Especially since with the USB cable I can connect to my PC to unload or load things!

The thing charges it's battery extremely quickly. I charged it from 50% to 96% in under 2 hours through the usb to outlet.

The screen is as wonderful as you are hearing. Very bright and responsive. I can't really see the individual pixels with my aging eyes. And the speakers are very loud; I usually keep them down to 50%.

I'm very glad to have the camera on the back, as well as the front. It's a 5MP camera that takes stills and video that are good.

All of that at this price point is a no-brainer.

Cons: It's possible my router is the culprit, but without changing any router settings this newer model Nexus 7 seems to be slower in the wireless speed department. I'm not really doing any real testing or experimenting, but it just seems a bit slower to me. It's not a Dual Band router, tho.

Really, I just want my youtube videos to load faster. Hah!

Would really, really like to see an microSD card slot in this thing.

Other Thoughts: The packaging is very nice and subtle. Everything fits nicely inside the box and came to me in perfect condition.

As an aside, when you first turn the tablet on some of the features won't work properly and may cause Android to crash. Simply make sure you connect to Wifi and update to 4.3, because it may have shipped with 4.2. After that everything works perfectly. Even my 5 year old niece was snapping 100 shots a second on the camera.

Buy an ASUS travel cover! It feels great and adds a ton of protection.

Syba OG-AUD63038-2 Oblanc Cobra200 2.0 Stereo Headphones with In-line Mic (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I was somewhat surprised by these headphones. They are very clear and deep. I don't know precisely how to explain it, but you get the full range of sound. Compared to my $30 headphones I was suddenly shocked by the difference.

Even better, I got these free for buying a new tablet!

Another good thing (though I could see it also being negative in certain situations) the headphones have a tight grip, yet are still comfy for medium to long periods of time. After a full day of using them I do tend to get a small headache near my temples.

Cons: - A little tight, can cause headache after 8 hours or so
- Mic isn't all that great

Not worth losing an egg.

Other Thoughts: All in all it's a nice headset, and it's got an inline mic, so you can use it with a tablet, etc.

Arrived on time, as usual!

COMPAQ Presario CQ60-210US NoteBook AMD Athlon X2 QL-62 (2.00GHz) 2GB Memory 250GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 8200M 15.6
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -This computer is amazing for it's price.
-It has a beautiful screen.
-Fast, Stable, Quality
-Not very loud
-Num-pad (The reason I got it)

Cons: It's made by Compaq, under HP. Also, it gets a bit hot, but that can be taken care of by cooling options.

Other Thoughts: I really like this computer. It's cheap, but it does what I Wanted exactly. I got this laptop to do what my desktop couldn't and go where it couldn't. It can even play some games, but I don't plan on using it for that unless I'm desperate ;)
