EVGA TEGRA NOTE 7 Tablet - 16GB Flash, 1GB RAM Quad Core NVIDIA Tegra 4
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Lots of potential, but unreliable... 02/11/2014

This review is from: EVGA TEGRA NOTE 7 Tablet - 16GB Flash, 1GB RAM Quad Core NVIDIA Tegra 4

Pros: -Tegra 4 is FAST
-Built in stylus is awesome (when it works)

Cons: -Unreliable
-Needs more RAM
-Stylus does not always work! Draw a line in an app, and it started coming up dotted...
-Neither does the screen for that matter... Started to be completely unresponsive at times, to stylus or touch
-Started shutting itself off, becoming unresponsive, etc
-I uninstalled everything but the base apps to make sure it wasn't something I put on it (after I wiped it), and it still had the same problems

Other Thoughts: Owning this thing for a few weeks felt like a beta test; I'm excited for what it will be someday, but it's not reliable enough now... I sent this back after 1.5 months and spent the extra money for a nexus... I like the CONCEPT of the Tegra Note more, but the nexus is much more reliable... Spend the extra cash on the nexus, or wait for Tegra Note 2.0. I'll be excited to see what it will (hopefully) look like...

Western Digital WD Green WD15EARX 1.5TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: High capacity

Cons: This thing is incredibly slow for accessing data. I put a 5400rpm back in to speed my system back up... Yeah, it's that slow

Other Thoughts: Works fine if it's being used to hold pics or vids... Just don't install anything on it...

Rosewill RCW-618 USB to IDE / SATA Adapter - Supports Windows 7

5 out of 5 eggs Does exactly what it's made for 10/29/2008

This review is from: Rosewill RCW-618 USB to IDE / SATA Adapter - Supports Windows 7

Pros: Love it. Keeps me from having to open my case or shut down my machine when I want to diagnose ANY kind of hard drive.

Cons: For HDD's with bad sectors, or wierd formatting issues, it will still detect the usb device, but not show the drive. So really, just for pulling off info after fixing a drive.

Other Thoughts: Still love it. 'Can you get my music off before you wipe my hard drive?' no longer makes me cringe... :D
