Most Favorable Review

Great for gaming/emulation

Pros: Fast CPU/GPU. Using a custom ROM can unlock more power — at the sacrifice of higher battery consumption Decent amount of RAM Large, bright, clear, responsive screen Game center for noobs For the most part controls work great Easy access to the microSD slot Despite what the specs say, you can use up to a 128GB microSD (possibly more when 256GB+ cards come out) Combined with Kainy, you can stream nearly any game from your PC (locally and remotely) Great for watching videos HDMI out without delayed video USB OTG cable for external storage or controller Good weight and a sturdy feel for comfortable play

Cons: Somewhat poor battery life Left analog stick rotates causing occasional loss of control Default ROM provides limited App storage but this can be solved by moving some to a microSD or with a custom ROM Light can be saturated in the corners but can be fixed by unscrewing the screen a bit Had wifi connection problems until I found out DHCP was getting the same IP as another device on my network. It has worked great after I manually set a static IP Charging via a special power port (with a questionable power supply — no humming or overheating on mine though), though you can buy a 2.5mm barrel connector to USB cable or hack the power supply to have a USB connector to use with most cell chargers, etc. (5V 2A recommended)

Overall Review: I bought two of these after I researched them a while and they exceeded my expectations. The default ROM is decent but current versions aren't rooted. I played a little bit before I backed up some apps and installed lujji's KitKat Custom Firmware. Everything runs great. Despite some hardware issues, I would definitely buy it again.

Most Critical Review

Large storage at a great price, but slower than grandma

Pros: large storage space price size no corruption

Cons: The transfer rate is horrible. I was getting fluctuations between 10-25MB/s for large file transfers. It is USB 3, but it can't even transfer at USB 2 speeds. This is definitely not a drive for short-term storage since it takes so long to transfer to/from.

Overall Review: If you want a lot of space at a good price and speed doesn't matter much then get this drive.
