5 out of 5 eggs Google Play Store Works Perfectly, Extremely Good Value 12/08/2013

This review is from: Nextbook 7" Android Tablet - Dual Core 1.50Ghz 1GB RAM 8GB Flash, Android 4.1 GMS (M7000NBD)

Pros: * Google Play Store works fine! Chrome update fine. I don't know what a previous reviewer was complaining about, but I can install all my major apps.
* Screen is bright and clear.
* Videos play well.
* Touch is responsive (and multitouch).
* Battery life is acceptable.
* Very quick.
* SD slot.
* Every app tried so far works well.
* Nice looking

Cons: * Battery life only ok (two movies).
* If you look at the screen at too much of an angle, it loses quality.

Other Thoughts: This tablet represents extreme value. I bought it to use at the gym so I don't have to risk my Nexus 7, and was surprised at how good it is. It is fast, runs every app I've tried (Netflix, Chrome, Hulu Plus, games), and looks great. Another reviewer mentioned not Google Compatible, they are wrong, I just upgraded Chrome, and have already installed many apps from the Google Play Store. Yes, the Nexus 7 in nicer, but also four times the price. I looked around at budget tablets before getting this one, and was shocked at how good it was for the money.

Acer T232HLbmidz Black 23

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Clear, bright and responsive to touch. Love the ability to lay it nearly flat. Set up with zero fuss. Feels like the future.

Cons: Very minor: doesn't have a Start button like the Windows 8 tablets.

Other Thoughts: When I use this with the Maps app or viewing photos (with my fast computer) I feel like I'm in a Science Fiction movie, it is really frigging cool.

To address some negatives I read in other reviews before buying: the bezel is wide to allow touch gestures that drag starting off-screen, something necessary for Windows 8. If there was custom gesture software from Acer I would not install it -- the point here is to have a Windows 8 experience, and the customization must come from that. Also Windows 8 did identify the monitor correctly.

I don't write reviews much, and I don't particularly care for Acer, but they nailed the Windows 8 touchscreen experience.

Diablotek DA Series PSDA300 300W ATX12V v2.31 Power Supply

1 out of 5 eggs Damaged 2 Harddrives 02/15/2012

This review is from: Diablotek DA Series PSDA300 300W ATX12V v2.31 Power Supply

Pros: Taught me a lesson about cheap off-brand PSU's.

Cons: Bought this to make a cheap secondary computer. I had a few problems with the build, but I assumed it was the motherboard, and after a few tries got Windows installed. Several months later the system began hanging, and I received hardrive sector errors. Eventually I replaced the power supply with a decent brand. I was then able to reinstall Windows no problem, all the problems I associated with the motherboard went away. However the original harddrives I had installed had unrecoverable errors and were damaged beyond repair. This bad choice of a PSU cost me a fortune in damaged hardware. I won't make that mistake again.
