ASUS Zenpad 8 Z380M-A2-GR Tablet MTK MT8163 (1.30 GHz) 2 GB LPDDR3 16 GB eMMC 8.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast CPU, 2 Gigs Ram, 16gb storage with MicroSDHC, no graphical errors or glitches.

Cons: No Infared port (to use as universal remote control).

WiFi connectivity is spotty, but I get the same issues using my Galaxy S4 in WiFi mode.

Other Thoughts: I have an Asus N66U router, so im confused as to why games like Clash or Clans is often giving me connectivity issues on my back porch, 30' from the router. Dont get me wrong, this tablet was well worth the money. But this old LG 7" tablet I replaced had better WiFi connectivity.

Corsair Certified Neutron Series 256GB Sata III Internal 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast and cheap for a refurb item.

Cons: Lasted a month before dying.

Other Thoughts: Used this for a Win7 HTPC so I could record shows via Windows Media Center, then almost exactly a month after I got it, it simply stopped being recognized by the BIOS. Removed and re-mounted the older 64gb SDD, booted up just fine.

Samsung OEM 32GB micro SD- SDHC Class 10 Memory card upto 80MB/S Read with Mini Case + Adapter HK042-NE1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Using a Trancend USB 2.0 Card reader, got 25 MB/s read & 22 MB/s write speeds.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This resolved video pausing problems I was having when using a Raspberry Pi running XBMC (open elec) to view live cable channels via a HD Homerun Prime, which is a network based cable tuner.

Comcast still uses MPEG2 for TV streams and 1080p can push up to 20 MB/s, so its important to have write speeds that fast.
