Most Favorable Review

Just what I needed

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 2 WiFi 10.1-inch Tablet PC - Titanium Silver
SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 2 WiFi 10.1-inch Tablet PC - Titanium Silver

Pros: Shiny, great screen colors, smooth OS, SD card slot, great battery life, and a processor that can keep up. Graphic heavy games like Bloons TD 4 get a little laggy on level 75 and above, but that's common on most mobile devices for this game.

Cons: SHORT, Proprietary charging cable (Really, Samsung? Why?) - Fortunately it works well with a USB extension cable with no noticeable lag in charging time. Internet gets laggy/jerky when navigating between pages. Can't watch most Flash media without jumping through the usual hoops.

Overall Review: I use this tablet for media consumption, note-taking and casual games. It does what I want, how I want, and with what I want. Thank you Android market. The only thing better than this would be if Bezos & Co. fixed the Fire to be a REAL tablet with (side-loading etc) AND made their Prime ecosystem available. A girl can dream, can't she...?

Most Critical Review

Worked well the first two times

Blue Microphones - Eyeball 2.0
Blue Microphones - Eyeball 2.0

Pros: Cool looking. Ridiculously easy plug and play. No software needed. (Using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit and Home Premium 64-bit) Fairly good sound pickup in non-sound friendly area.

Cons: Totally flaky attachment to monitors more than 3/4" thick. They provide an attachment to stabilize the camera but the camera moves and falls with every little bump. I cannot consistently get 30fps. First try was on Skype and the call went fine. Then I moved it to another computer and Skyped again. Then tried to record a vid on YouTube and there was a 5 second delay and the voice would no longer sync. Thought maybe it was a YouTube glitch but when I went back to Skype the problem repeated itself. I have no idea what's wrong, there is no software to configure. I downloaded AVS Video Recorder and it said it was set @ 30 fps but it did not display that way on cam.

Overall Review: I haven't called Blue yet, but I was frustrated enough to write this. Will update if it was something stupid on my part.

Pretty good

Overall Review: The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it... stutters?... from time to time. When coming online, when doing high intensity things, when streaming. It's not my network. I've done a side-by-side test with a SLOWER device. I also didn't realize that there was no number pad, but that was my fault.

Almost perfect...

New Rina Rich North-South Tote 971 Tan/Brown
New Rina Rich North-South Tote 971 Tan/Brown

Pros: Very cute, great details, sturdy materials inside and out. POCKETS GALORE!! perfect for my stuff and my tablet and other small devices, but not too big without them.

Cons: The handles are about 3-4 inches too short. Can be carried by hand, but when you want to sling it over your shoulder it gets stuck quite often.
