Most Critical Review

Randomly reboots

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer (TF101-A1) NVIDIA Tegra 2 1.00GHz 1GB DDR2 Memory 10.1" 1280 x 800 Tablet Android 3.0 (Honeycomb)

Pros: Specs, keyboard dock, battery life.

Cons: Any time it is not in use for a while it reboots and freezes on the Asus screen, it is very annoying every time I want to use the tablet quickly and then I have to wait to reboot it again, Asus has not release a software fix and when I try email them all they can tell me is to take it to a store that is an hour away. Doing a factory reset/wipe does not fix the issue.

Overall Review: I would expect more from Asus and they have really disappointed me, before this I could buy their products with confidence but now that has changed.

Avoid Sparkle

SPARKLE Calibre Series GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card X580

Pros: None

Cons: The first card I got died 2 months after I got it. Sparkle made it really hard to get a warranty claim, but eventually I got a new card. The card worked most of the time, but would crash occasionally. To avoid having to deal with sparkle I just under clocked the card and it worked fine. Until a couple months ago, so while still under warranty I contacted Sparkle and at first told me they couldn't find me in the records and I didn't have a receipt for this new card since it was a warranty replacement. After 2 months of back and forth emails with them taking 2-3 weeks to answer my emails they finally told me the warranty had expired. Kind of convenient for them to not find me in the records until after the warranty expired.

Overall Review: I will never purchase anything else from Sparkle and I recommend that if you read this you do the same.
