This Tablet is Great
Pros: Tegra 4 is very fast. Screen looks great. Speakers are superb.
Cons: Can only buy it from Newegg. Good luck if you need to return or refund it as their customer support will rip you off. Lack of 3rd party support for cases and such. Newegg cheated me over on a laptop return and I'm using up a credit coupon to buy this. Will be deleting Newegg as a vendor once this is out of their RMA period.
Overall Review: I've been using this to watch movies and browse the web. It's fast and with the right video player will play anything. I recommend Dice Player or BSPlayer from Google Play Store. Even though the screen is only 720p, it looks fantastic. I've messed around with the stylus and it works well but that's not what I bought it for. Tegra 4 is very fast.
Pros: Bright and sharp screen. Colors are great. Fast response to touch. Battery life is fantastic. Accepts 32gb micro sd card. The backing is nice to hold. Not a lot of bloatware and you can uninstall most of it. Upgrades to Lollipop 5.0. Usb port is on the side of the tablet (easy to charge while holding it). It feels solid and is constructed well.
Cons: Maybe the speakers but I use headphones to watch movies. Speakers are good enough when I'm playing a game or surfing the web. It does not have HDMI, again this is not what I wanted it for, so no big deal to me.
Overall Review: This tablet gets a bad rap because of only having a 720p screen. I had tried a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1" and an Apple Ipad Air, before buying this. Honestly I don't see a difference in screen quality and I don't see any pixilation, at all. The screen is sharp and bright, a real pleasure to watch movies and play simple games. Haven't used this to play graphic intensive games, so I can't comment on that. For the price, you can't beat the quality and battery life of this unit.
Pros: Runs very cool and it's quiet. Powered by the motherboard, no additional power cable needed. Runs with a 300w power supply. Plays my games on high settings.
Overall Review: This is a fantastic graphics card for a PC without having to change your power supply. Installed it in my Dell I3847-4616BK. It's an I5-4440 unit with a 300w power supply. Added this card and I'm playing Diablo III, and GTA IV at high/max settings, without any heat build up. I'm letting the Nvidia program choose optimized settings for me. I think it could run everything at max with no problems but it looks beautiful as it is.
A solid machine
Pros: Gets all the android updates first since it is the flagship machine and is running vanilla android. Runs Netflix with no problems. Screen is clear and beautiful. Graphics look great. Has a metal cover which feels solid and protects the tablet from accidents. Has gorilla glass that is scratch resistant. Screen is very responsive. Although it’s heavier than some of the other tablets or Ipad 2, how much difference does .3 lbs really make. Has micro usb and micro hdmi. Play videos/movies, really great without any lag. Speakers and sound are also very good.
Cons: I wish the charging connection and the headphone connections where on the side instead of the top and bottom.
Overall Review: This is just a great tablet that runs well and feels solid. Gets all the updates first and runs everything that android is supposed to run. I love it. 32gb is really necessary and it’s affordable at the sale prices at Newegg. Newegg’s price, delivery and no sales tax are solid as always.
Excellent card at a bargain price
Pros: Very fast card. Easily overclocked using ATI Catalyst program on automatic setting. Only tested card with Guild Wars but runs great with everything maxed out and plays very smooth. At $70 (after rebate), this is a great deal. Runs very quiet and does not overheat.
Overall Review: Was missing a couple of cords but I contacted their customer service and they are sending the parts out today. Very pleasant company to deal with.
