Hisense Sero 8 - 8” Tablet with 1.4Ghz Quad Core CPU, 1GB System Memory, 16GB Storage (Up to 32GB with Micro SD Slot), Front + Rear Cameras, Wifi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, Android 4.4 Kit Kat

Pros: Pure Android Kitkat, like I'm used to on my phone. Has a quad core (which beats my phone) processor and a nice bit of RAM as well all for a real cheap price. Granted I got a refurb for a further discount, you really can't beat what this tablet can do for the price I paid. I had to manually find the other place that sells apps's apk to get that to work but other than that it's got that, my Playstore account, and Humble Bundle games all working fine, apart from a FEW apps that require GPS.
G-sensor works great but it's the only sensor you'll be getting, more in cons...

Cons: Camera is TERRIBLE, and i'm talking about the better front facing camera. The rear one shouldn't even be looked at. But if you're the type of person to take pictures with a tablet then well, newegg won't let me put what's wrong with you here in this review. Plus it's likely you've got a phone in your pocket you can whip out and get the shot with instead.

Lack of GPS may be a deal breaker for some, and also causes some apps to not work, even with its wifi location ability. It also only has a G-sensor, ATLEAST it's in all three axis but it works ok for games that need it for steering and such. No lux sesor for auto dimming or otherwise, no ANYTHING else sensor. JUST a G-sensor that works fine from what I could test it through. Like CPU-Z, games, etc. Switching from landscape to portrait and back again all seem responsive.

Other Thoughts: Like I said before, got it at a DEEP discount for being refurbished and starting to show some age. But quad-core with a GB of RAM runs most things very smoothly, Though I am an avid task-killer and never run more than an app or two at a time (two is when I'm not paying attention)

Ballistix Sport 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model BLS4K4G4D240FSA

Pros: Cheap RAM, came with a great X99 combo deal i got around the holidays. Have had good history with Ballistix.

Cons: Only got the 5820K but it still overclocks ok. However I'm slowly getting more and more boot failures and having to take off the overclock. RAM is likely the culprit. I'll probably upgrade to better RAM rather than adding more of this.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I'm right, maybe i'm wrong. I only chose an auto-overclock setting on my Gigabyte UD4 for 4GHz but occasionally things get wonky, never a blue screen or whatever windows 8.1 has, because i've never seen it. But a restart to fix this weird behavior always asks for me to default the BIOS, which I've upgraded properly.

3 out of 5 eggs Lies 02/07/2014

This review is from: Slim Magnetic DVD Burner for Barebone

Pros: might burn and read dvds

Cons: Real price is less than the inflated price i was told when given to me with a bundle of a minicomputer.

Other Thoughts: I would have bought it anyway, no need for the lies.
