Over the last few weeks, I have been debating about picking up a cheap Android device as I have come to miss being able to have access to Discord and Skype much like how I did with the XDA Exec with instant messaging and while my Surface Pro does a good job as a laptop that Windows 10 kinda sucks as a tablet.
While I am still hoping to be able to find a phone with a built-in keyboard I do plan to use this device for web browsing and chatting online for a while but I will one day use it as a secondary device to monitor my servers.
Disclaimer: I was not paid to write this review. I do however have Amazon Referral Links. Secondly based on the charger connector & opening it up I found this is the Linx 1010b and NOT the Linx 1010 – I was sent the wrong device.
Around five years ago as of posting this article I did a review on my Surface Pro which was a device I loved. It was quite powerful, looked nice and pretty much did everything I wanted with a tablet excluding the fact the battery life sucked big time. Sadly my Surface Pro has now been taken out of action and repair job on it is not worth the cost so I decided to look for a new device – a new tablet that I can use while out and about but can still run a few things I want on it.
So here we are: My Review on the Linx 1010. I will be doing my review in a couple of sections and naturally your usage may vary. I am going to add that I am not doing any stress tests or benchmarks – you can find them all over the World Wide Web. My review is based on a day to day usage I would have with it. Continue reading →
As per what normally happens so often to me (See: Laptops from the past), as of writing this article I am doing some research into a replacement system for my “every day usage” and during my search I finally had the chance to try using a Microsoft Surface Pro and while there was some problems and things I would change – I found the Microsoft Surface Pro to actually be a very good device that I would replace my laptop and tablet.
Now in my reviews, I do not go into all the technical details as I am honestly sure you are intelligent enough to load up Google so I am going to talk about a few things I did on it and if it does it well. Continue reading →
This originally was going to be a video review showing me unboxing the monitor, connecting it, installing the drivers and then showing you how it works but then I thought how hard that actually would be hard and a boring video. If you are in a rush then here is the review summed up – it works very well as long as you are using the two USB cable provided.
So let’s get the technical stuff out-of-the-way first. As you have read in the title this is a 21.5″ – 1920×1080 monitor that runs purely from a USB cable (it is a Y spilt USB cable so actually uses two USB ports on your system) which is very light and allows you to easily add a second monitor to any system that use a spare USB port.
