Nice card for the price
Pros: Very nice card for the price. This is aimed for the general user, with some multimedia applications. It is not for the high-end gamer.
Overall Review: Some may have encountered what they thought was an issue with this cards driver taking out their sound card. That is not really the case. Just go into control panel/sound and set the input back to you sound card. This driver installs a high def audio interface that gets promoted ahead of your sound card in the sound properties. Easy to fix.
Pros: Got this one in a combo deal with a gen 2 iPod Touch. Sorry does not work with gen2, no cutout for the volume rocker. Unfortunate return policy is only for replacement of the same item. Nice features though, wish it would work. Maybe a Dremel tool could work it out.
Cons: No fit for gen 2 volume rocker.
Overall Review: Would be nice if return policy was not limited to replacing with the same item.
Incredible refurb bargain.
Pros: I have had good luck so far with a couple of refurb laptop purchases. But this one is over the top. Listed as grade B. But the keyboard is like new and no sign of wear anywhere I can see. The laptop is equipped as describe by the seller and I am using this as a portable studio for my YouTube channel, both for capturing video and rendering it. I will definitely be looking for this sellers offerings in the future. I might be in the market for a desktop soon. Thanks.
Overall Review: Great quality and value. I got so excited to use this laptop I didn't bother to look at the information card included in the package with support contact and warranty information.
VitalASC mini 704A
Pros: I have been looking for a smaller tablet for simple browsing, ebook and document reading, lite note taking, etc. For the price, I am satisfied with this purchase. Please know that to get 2 cameras, bluetooth and mini HDMI together, you will have to start at twice the price of this unit. This unit has two cameras, yes, but no bluetooth. That said, it is a good companion for when my 10 inch tablet with all the bells and whistles is too heavy to hold for extended periods or those features are not needed. The construction is solid. The back has a nice 'carbon fiber' texture. It is thin and lightweight. From my experience battery life may be 3-4 hours continuous usage. I have not encountered any performance issues for the purposes I am using it for. If you want to load it up with a bunch of games and a lot of other software, you might find the 4GB capacity to be a limitation. But for simple browsing, ebook and document reading, you should have no problem. Video playback of files I have loaded on a separate mini SD card is fine. All in all, for under $50, with the right expectations, I think you will be satisfied too. From the intensive reviewing of tablets in this class, I think this is the best price, feature and quality match, again with reasonable expectations. Personally, I think $200 is too much for a 7 inch tablet. My 10" was $140, from Chinese retail website. My wifes 8" with dual cameras, bluetooth and mini HDMI was $90 on sale with Newegg.
Cons: I think some reviewers may have expectations that would apply to tablets in the $100 plus range. If you are going to play graphic intensive games or load it up with a lot of programs, perhaps consider quad core 8GB models to start with. Again, this unit does not have bluetooth. It was never implied in any description I have read here that this was to be expected.
You haven't bought this yet?
Pros: If you just look at the ratings of every sub-$100 2TB drive, take the total of 1-2 egg reviews against the total of 4-5 egg reviews. Nothing else comes even close. Got two mirrored with my massive video collection on board. No sweat.
Overall Review: Buy it already!
What I wanted was out of stock so they charge me anyway and ship just any old thing they want to me.
Vendor (AcerRecertified) shipped an Acer Iconia Android tablet instead. No exchange offered. Can only return for refund. The item is sold out now. So I didn't get what I wanted and they don't have any way to make it right for me. Instead of just picking just any old thing off the shelf and sending it to me, send me and email saying what I want is no longer in stock. Don't charge me and ship me something I don't want leaving it up to me to have to go out ship it back and wait for a refund. Bad buiness model and I won't ever do business with this vendor again.
