Cool test box.
Pros: - Great as a low-power or portable linux test box. - Plenty of online support with a huge community. - Can be powered by micro-usb
Cons: - Don't expect too much computing power out of it, that's not really the point - Initial setup requires a keyboard and a monitor unless you get a usb serial/tty cable to hook up to some of the GPIO pins.
Overall Review: - The picture with a ribbon cable is just showing that there's a slot in the case to allow a 40-wire ribbon cable to be plugged in while the case is closed. You can actually use an old IDE cable as long as it isn't one of the 80-conductor ones with all the ground wires tied together. Not a necessary component, just fun for using the I/O stuff while still using then ice case it comes with.
Are these stolen?
Pros: - Runs Chrome OS
Cons: - Still provisioned to someone's domain - No way to deprovision at current version of Chrome OS without access to where it came from - Cannot use dev mode or install other OS - Permanently locked down like what you would get on lease from a school
Overall Review: - A little scratched, but I knew the physical condition would be less than new, not an issue for me If you continue selling these without deprovisioning them, they will appear to be something someone stole from a school. Please consider having these deprovisioned before reselling them. This is unprofessional.
Probably Skip this One.
Pros: - Displays picture - Looks nice on the wall - very thin and light -up-scaling on lower res content looks fine and works well
Cons: - the 240Hz cannot be turned off or scaled down effectively. There are menu options to do so, but it still looks a bit fast to my friends that complain about it even with the motion stuff turned off in the settings. - horrible input lag/delay. please DO NOT BUY THIS TV FOR GAMING. If you just want to watch things on it, it's fine, but if you connect a mouse/keyboard/controller to something hooked up to this TV, it's like hearing an echo of yourself on the other end of a phone call. It's completely unbearable, and makes this TV completely unusable for me.
Overall Review: - can only display 4k at 30Hz (which I knew when buying it, so not a con)
Pros: the corkscrew bit actually opens a wine bottle, so i dont have to look up youtube videos on doing it with a shoe or something similarly silly. the thermometer works as a thermometer, in celsius.
Cons: i used the stopped once, when i went to pull it out the top came out, the rest was still stuck in the bottle, i had to use a pliers to get it out, and then it wouldn't stay together so i just had to jam the original cork back in the wine. The corkscrew is slowly warping every time i used it, and I'm afraid it's going to snap apart and leave the screw part in a cork, and the handle in my hand. Also, there were no instructions and i'm not even completely sure what the other pieces are for.
Overall Review: I think the one thing goes over the neck so you can hold it without putting pressure on the bottle neck, and the other thing might be to cut the foil around the cork? legitmately not sure though.
Pros: Best pixel depth i've seen on a monitor... ever. i know some people prefer size, and physical viewing space, but i go for pixel depth, and this beats everything there. i don't have a dead pixel yet, and i've had these for awhile.
Cons: i own two, set up on one computer side by side. they're different colors. idk the proper term, but the gamut or something is off. one is really cool and the other is really warm. i only notice because they're next to each other though.
Overall Review: i'll probably buy a third one soon, if my desk has room, i love these things. i know for awhile they had a 2ms version on here instead of this 5ms one, but other than that, you can't beat these
