4 out of 5 eggs Worth every penny of the $29.99 08/06/2015

This review is from: Sony PlayStation TV

Pros: A tiny console able to remote play the PS4! Plays Vita games on a big screen and has some Video streaming services a web browser e-mail etc.

Cons: There is a minuscule but nonetheless period of lag, probably within 50 to 200 milliseconds so remote might not be suitable for timing intense action games and shooters. You also do need to buy an extra memory card and another DS4 to get full use out of the thing.

My biggest grouch is that I can't stream videos on my PS4 to this which is minus 1 star, although I can "cross buy" the videos and store them directly on to this from the PS store.

Other Thoughts: Although I can't say this is for everyone, it was still a great purchase worth every penny of the $29.99! PS4 remote play is awesome and with a good wired connection it will stream my games without major issues to a 32' in our bed room.

The Vita system itself seems to be in need of more games and apps, however there are a few essentials such as Netflix and is good enough to keep me entertained while I can't be in the living room (where our kid sometimes falls asleep)

GIGABYTE  GV-R927OC-2GD  Radeon R9 270  2GB  256-Bit  GDDR5  PCI Express 3.0  HDCP Ready Video Card Factory Refurbished Certified Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought on sale refurbed at $114 + 1 year extended, great deal for what it is! Getting about 1.5 - 2x fps than my 2 year old HD 7790 which wasn't super bad to begin with. The thing came reconditioned out of factory and looked and felt almost new, with added power cables a cross fire X cable probably in a new box.

Cons: All obvious stuff here, but the fans run louder than the HD 7790. Also I had a couple at home, but the thing didn't come with a VGA adapter which I'm going to use for dual screen. The card was physically longer than expected which I got around by moving my HDD and had two power connectors instead of one.

Other Thoughts: For the casual and a some times Steam gamer this was a no brainer for the price! Some games were getting slower on an HD 7790 and dual screen was DOable but I feel much safer with double the memory and a higher grade GPU. It's good enough for web creation and some video editing, some gaming etc...

iView SupraPad i700QW Intel Atom 1GB Memory 16GB 7.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP! I've never seen anything cheaper! You can't beat it! The Quad Atom is as fast as some desktop CPU from 5 or 6 years ago and it runs Windows 8.1 without much trouble. Some of the included features are Realtek Wifi, Bluetooth which get's an OK signal. Also this has been able to read a 64GB micro SDXC card so I'm almost sure a 128GB would work as well.

Cons: (Although for $60 I can't complain) Most probably this was originally designed to run Android and doesn't have a Windows Start button. The screen is mediocre quality and 1024 x 600 scaled up to 1280 x 720 to meet the minimum Win 8.1 requirements, so fonts get crushed and is a bit difficult to read letters, Photos and Movies are fine. The 16GB eMMC (or SSD) is roughly 1/3 filled with a recovery partition and wish they've given me a way to use the space without seriously getting in to the EFI and stuff. Instructions or some info on how to install a different OS might've been great.

Other Thoughts: If this were more than say like $130 or something, I'm sure I'd be posting a mediocre review. But being in the PC business for 20 years, I can say with certainty that this is THE CHEAPEST New retail "PC" with a screen running full Windows that I've ever come across EVER. Sure the 1GB memory is just barely enough and the 16GB SSD (eMMC) is very tight, the screen is relatively difficult to view... but for $60? I'm not complaining. If you need a grouch free good Win 8.1 tab you should consider forking out more cash with at least 2GB of RAM a bare minimum 32GB of primary storage space.

As note: I've been able to get to the UEFI (either ESC or DEL keys on boot) but there isn't the regular drive boot order screen. It does however have a command line EFI shell and recognizes a CD/DVD USB device thus probably will be able to EFI boot this to some other OS, although I've never done this and without a way to recover it's too risky at this point.
