4.0 out of 5 stars Overall positive, but mixed feelings, July 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Positives
- Super easy to set up. Literally took a couple minutes.
- Super easy to maintain and administer. I'm tech support in my family, and this makes my job a whole lot easier. No more worrying about viruses and computer slowdowns.
- Supports camera photo uploads and external USB drives
- User interface is simple and easy to use for non-technical types
- Super fast system. Quick boot time, quick shutdown, and no lagginess.

Negatives:
- No Skype support. Google Hangouts is support, but see the second issue below.
- If you use a USB webcam for video conferencing, you're out of luck. There's no support for USB audio and no ETA for making this available. What this means is that people can see you, but not hear you. This is ridiculous considering how much Google advertises their Hangouts feature.
- The File Manager is very barebones, and it's not as user friendly or functional as Windows Explorer on PC or the Finder on Mac.

[EDIT July 23, 2012] Upgrading from 3 stars to 4 stars since Google has added USB webcam support and Google Drive file manager support in the latest beta release.

One more thing I'd like to add... A number of people have complained about a speaker hum. I haven't experienced this at all with my unit. It's super quiet and cool.

I use this case with my Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. It's a great fit. It protects the device well. And it's got a refined and professional look. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing little gadget!, January 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just got this today. I used my Mac for the setup. It was straightforward and painless. I was able to quickly get it connected with my iPhone 4 and my wife's iPod Touch 4g; and also auto upload to my Picasa web account. I noticed some people complain about the setup process -- I honestly don't understand that. I experienced no issues at all.

My wife and I absolutely love the Eye-Fi card. No more wires, and no more messing with a computer to upload and share photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's perfect at what it is, an Amazon consumption device, November 17, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're bought into the Amazon content ecosystem, i.e. books, movies, music -- then this is for you. It's simple, friendly and performs just fine. And, on top of that, there's the Amazon App Store. That's just icing on the cake. It's not about gps, cameras, video chat, tv remote controls, or anything geeky. It's simply a drop dead easy content consumption device.

Caveat: Magazines are awful on this device. I read magazines on their respective websites anyway, so it doesn't bother me much.
