Bios disables features9/21/2012 4:25:03 PM

Pros: It's fast, light, and runs longer on battery than most netbooks.

Cons: AMD C60 processor has all the features a current desktop chips would. While slower to save battery, it does have many of the features removed from the alternative Atom chips. However Acer has disabled AMD-Virtualization in the BIOS with no means to enable.

Overall Review: It would be a perfect netbook if manufactur's software was better.

Bad Software/Firmware2/13/2012 12:04:13 PM

Pros: Card is fast with many options for ports

Cons: Software is garbage, firmware clashes with onboard devices on two separate motherboards boards. There is no support for recent Linux kernels. The "Open source driver" on their page is just a wrapper for a half dozen binary files.

Pros: More than enough power for ROHS doing everything a soldering iron needs to do. Extras include a magnetic switch hidden behind the faceplate to calibrate, lock, and change C/F. So much geeky over engineering, magnets and hidden switches.

Cons: A bit pricey, iron doesn't swap with welder's other pens, requiring only the PES51. If it only was a bit cheaper I'd give it five stars.

Overall Review: Picture doesn't include the magnet on a stick. Magnets, how do the work, can't explain that.

Everything in a small package1/26/2011 2:10:52 PM

Pros: Plays an assortment of file types, works as either a mass-storage unit or media-transport so any software can load songs. I'm already found out it is also hackable and capable of running http://rockbox.org

Cons: Changing and usb plug isn't standard. Player only charges via usb->sandisk cable and places device in a non-playing state while charging. Might cause issues for others while using it in a car.
