This review is from: Acronis Disk Director 11 Home
Pros: Acronis is at least reliably functional, in my experience.
Cons: Support will be inadequate and expensive. Probably doesn't support the latest tech, unless you're lucky, and they'll charge you for the "update" that does.
Other Thoughts: Acronis used to be a great company, but now they are out to chisel every penny from you they can. I bought an earlier version of DD, because they had a good history, and I like to reward companies. This also offered them two additional sales of the True Home Backup product, too.
Came the time when I really needed to use DD, I discovered it did not support GPT disks -- despite the fact that I'd purchased it more than 2 years AFTER the release of Windows 7, which **requires** GPT functionality -- and I would have to pay a $25 fee to upgrade to a version that did support GPT.
I don't expect miracles -- but failing to support it TWO YEARS after release, then demanding a huge upgrade fee to get access to functionality that should have come with it on the day of purchase is ridiculous.
Instead I discovered an alternative, which supported GPT in its FREE edition, and who has since gotten my PAID purchase. And will continue to do so for the indefinite future.
I don't recommend or purchase Acronis products any longer. They are out to cheat you of every penny they can.
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 - White
Pros: Solid, good battery performance, attractive. Sharp screen. Good size for the price (MNSHO: 100 bucks more for 1 extra additional inch? Naw.)
Cons: No phone/data connectivity. Didn't think about that when I bought it. Might have seen how much the price difference would have been. Can still use my phone as a hotspot connection, but be conscious of this.
Other Thoughts: It's notably smaller than the Galaxy Tab 2, so finding a cover/case for it is tricky -- better to buy it, take it to a store like Office Depot, and see if you can find a case that fits -- there weren't any GTab3 specific cases available when I bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Clean, Sharp looking, It's Samsung, so you expect a lot, and seems (so far) to deliver
Cons: Highest price of the 7", but that's not surprising. Samsung has so far seemed worth it.
Other Thoughts: This one is distinctly smaller than the SGT 2, so none of the existing GT2 covers will fit it even closely. Until you see one that says "for GT3", buy any cover locally to see that it's close enough to work. I did find one that was close enough, but as I write this (Aug, 2013) there are no GT3-specific covers.
I like the one I found by Speck... though it's not for the GT3, it's close enough, and features a latching cover, which I definitely like.
