Awful Screen is Awful
Pros: Windows 10. Small form factor. Rear and front cameras. In other words, the Pros are literally the industry standards for everyone else.
Cons: Cheaply made. Plastic EVERYTHING(even the screen) The screen is so bad, that there is literally an air bubble between the plastic and the Ultra Low Definition LCD panel. How does this pass QA? (It literally had a sticker on it that said it PASSED THEIR QA INSPECTION. Bright green. Hell to peel off.) Not to mention that the screen, when viewed from straight on, looks as if you're viewing from a 45 degree angle. This wouldn't be so noticeable if the viewing angles hadn't won the Worst in Class award for ten years running. When viewed from the front, the whole screen is warped, shimmering, and black. GG. Oh, also, the calibration is off. Typing is nigh impossible, and if you try do to anything with radio buttons(such as the option to display my name at the end of this review) you have a better chance of actually hitting an indigenous Rhino with an air rifle. From Alaska.
Overall Review: All in all? It came for free with the tower I bought. I was planning to use it to video chat with my girlfriend who is in Sweden until next year for school, since I moved over to desktop tower from laptop. Sadly, I will be doing no such thing. For her to see me, I have to point it at my face. For me to see her, I have to point it over my shoulder. I actually feel violated for receiving this. As if they GAVE it to me for a reason. Reason being they hate me and needed to get rid of it.
Horrible. Do not buy. Not even advertised product.
Cons: Everything. First of all, it's not what it claims to be. It is a wireless adapter used for connecting a PC to the internet. It doesn't say that here, nor on the packaging. The packaging being a white envelope, containing a small white blank paper box with only the adapter in it, and no drivers(I'll get to that next). Nothing. The product is impossible to install with what's given, as it comes with no drivers, and if you happened to realize it's not what's advertised, you probably are using it to connect to the internet... Which you need to do to get the drivers which are needed to do so. Do you get the problem there? Good. Worse yet... GETTING the drivers? It's a chore. There's no website, manufacturer, product number.. NOTHING on the box or the product. The only way to get the drivers is to Google the FCC ID, which then leads you on a wild goose chase for five sets of drivers, none of which work, and all come from very suspicious websites. Then, once you get it to(Continued)
Overall Review: (Continued)let you connect to the internet, it promptly stops sending or receiving data every five minutes, and requires a removal and reinsertion, which gives you another five minutes. It's disconnected twice in the time it has taken me to write this, and I'm still not sure what to do about it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. It's not what it's advertised as, and it's terrible at what it's actually meant for.
