Minix NEO-X5-116A ARM Cortext A9 Dual Core Quad Core Mali 400 Graphics 1 x HDMI Nano Size Media Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Fast. Plenty of ports and options. It can play games like dead trigger just fine. PS3 controller support through usb. Comes with all the cables you need. Minix is actively updating this device and they have good support. Android 4.1 jelly bean. Strong wifi and even has Ethernet port.

Cons: None so far exactly what I was hoping it would be.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on the other android PC sticks they'll end up costing you more than this thing and won't be able to offer everything you're getting with this! Excellent product!

Apple iPad mini (16 GB) with Wi-Fi – Black/Slate – Model #MD528LL/A

5 out of 5 eggs Simply Brilliant! 01/30/2013

This review is from: Apple iPad mini (16 GB) with Wi-Fi – Black/Slate – Model #MD528LL/A

Pros: This is an absolutely brilliant tablet. If you're wanting the absolute best tablet experience out there, this is it. I had several other tablets and I quickly realized that I hated the 10 inch size, they are not tablets in my opinion. They are big clunky LCD screens that you seriously have to think about weather you even want to bother picking them up. Some tablets I've had and returned or sold: Asus tf300, Toshiba thrive 305, Nexus 7, iPad 4th gen (9.7) and finally the iPad mini and I'm happy. My second favorite was the Nexus 7. It got it right size wise, but the screen was just to awkward in landscape orientation. The almighty iPad 4 with retina display and A6x cpu was blazing fast but just a chore to use. I quickly started hating it. If its too heavy to comfortably hold for a long time, its simply useless to me. The iPad mini only loses 2 inches of its screen at half the weight. It's simply so light that it feels like its not even there, I never think to myself about the weight because its just not an issue. Only downside is there's not the latest a6 CPU inside which was noticeably faster on the iPad 4 I had web browsing and no retina display, but obviously that will come in the 2nd generation of iPad mini.

Cons: No retina display occasional fuzzy text.
No cutting edge A6 CPU but still a speedy tablet.
Almost too thin, I recommend a rubber case for it.
16gb isn't enough if you plan on playing the hd gameloft games.

Other Thoughts: If you're trying to decide between this and a Nexus 7 just depends on what you're wanting to do. This has brilliant performance in every game, Nexus 7 had noticeable lag in a lot of games like asphalt 7 and nova 3.

ASUS Transformer Pad 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast affordable tablet. Love Tegra 3. Jellybean update was nice. Touchscreen was very accurate until a problem arose (see Con's)

Cons: I had to RMA 2 of these back to Newegg, and after 2 I didn't want to take another chance and got a refund. Newegg was GREAT by the way. The first one had dead pixels in the center of the screen which is unacceptable on Asus' part.
The second one I received had a perfect screen, and I thought it was a definite keeper, but then the right side of the touchscreen had a bad glitch where it would totally skip my touches. It made games like Dead Trigger unplayable. It almost seemed to be an overheating issue, but I know it wasn't normal as the display models in the stores did not have this issue. I am looking elsewhere for a tablet as this whole ordeal has taken a month and I've been without a tablet majority of the time. I really think Asus might need to hire some more quality control employees.

Other Thoughts: I'm just glad was so absolutely brillant in their RMA process. I really feel bad that I had to RMA two of these back to them. Hopefully it didn't cost them any money, and they will get reimbursed from Asus. Buy with confidence from! :)
