LG G Pad 8.3 Tablet -  Quad-Core 2GB RAM 16GB Flash 8.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Perfect size/weight
* Quad-core
* Full HD (1080p) screen
* 2 GB Ram
* MicroSD card slot
* Q-Pair

Cons: Wasn't cheaper...

Other Thoughts: I've owned this little tablet for a couple of months now, and I love it. My previous tablet was an Asus 10-inch Transformer (original version). While it was a fine tablet in its day, it did become quite slow and a bit unstable over time. Yes, I probably could have revived it by doing a factory wipe and reinstalling everything, or by installing a different Rom altogether, but I was also looking for something a bit smaller and lighter. The Asus is a lot of things, but *light* isn't one of them. The LG is perfect at 8.3 inches, and quite light. I wasn't sure if I'd like a tablet smaller than 10 inches, but I find that I don't really miss the difference in size.

One of my favorite features on this is the Q-Pair application. Using Bluetooth, I can have my phone (Samsung G3) on my charger in my bedroom, while still seeing (and responding to) text messages, and seeing incoming phone calls to my phone. Unfortunately, since I don't have an LG phone, I can't answer phone calls, but that's okay. At least I don't miss them completely now, and I can keep my phone on my charger in the evenings.

5 out of 5 eggs Way better than expected 10/02/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GW3DHDKIT Wireless HD Digital Kit

Pros: * Easy setup.
* Can connect receiver power via USB to TV USB without the use of the included power cable. Receiver turns on or off when the TV is turned on or off with no problems.
* Image and sound just as if TV were hooked up directly to cable box.
* No signal drop-outs even though going about 20 ft through a wall, a floor, and a metal heating duct.
* Price compared to other quality systems on the market.

Cons: * Have had double button presses when using my cable box remote, but that is probably due to the remote itself, rather than this system's IR transmitter, so I didn't take an egg off for this. I will probably change out to a universal remote to replace both the TV and cable box remotes, which will most likely resolve the problem.

Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised at how well this system works, and would recommend it to anyone.

Kensington KeyFolio Expert Folio & Keyboard for Android Tablets Model K39532US
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Keyboard has a nice tactile feel to it, in fact I'm using it to write this review. Very convenient to have the keyboard built into the folio case. I have an ASUS Transformer TF101 (the original), and the cost of this case with built-in keyboard was less than half the cost of the official ASUS keyboard that attaches directly to the tablet, so that made this a really good deal.

Cons: I gave this 4 eggs rather than a 5 because I've only had this case for about a week, but the jury is still out on how well the "unique multi-suction grip pad" will keep my ASUS held within the case. It's already come off the "grip pad" a couple of times, so I'm a bit nervous that it will fall off at a bad time and break my tablet. It's possible it has more to do with the grid-like back of the Transformer. Since it's not completely smooth, the "grip pad" might not be able to hold it as well as a tablet with a smooth back. Only time will tell about this aspect of the case. There are other cases with keyboards that looked like they would hold the tablet more securely by using tabs on each corner, but it appeared that the tabs may cover up some of the buttons, so I opted for this case instead. Crossing my finger!

Other Thoughts: Assuming the "grip pad" holds out in the long haul, this case and keyboard is a good value.
