Using with Inspire 1

Mizamook, B&H Photo
4 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought this for use as monitor/app controller for the DJI Inspire 1. I'm pretty happy with it, especially as I've paid more for "just a monitor" and this thing does other things, which is cool. I have not tapped into the full potential, I think. Being my first tablet, I can say I like it. The size is perfect.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Solid build
  • Cons: Shiny Screen

the tablet performs great. PDF viewing is a little unstable

David Yu, Amazon
29 March 2015
  • Summary: OK tablet. I use it primarily as a "paper replacement," i.e. note taking and reading PDF files. For note taking (I use Evernote), the tablet performs great. PDF viewing is a little unstable; the tablet tends to bog down if I open a PDF file larger than 20 pages, and sometimes crashes. The 2 stars are due to the fact that NVIDIA has some significant quality control issues.

it's great. However

Aaron Powers, Amazon
27 March 2015
  • Summary: When this tablet works, it's great. However, it's plauged by both quality and performance problems. I've had three different tablets and each one had problems worthy of an RMA. The first one got very hot and froze when bluetooth was left on (though it took a month before this problem started), the second one wouldn't stay turned on after 1 month, and the third had a semi-broken wifi straight out of the box.

Solid Controller

Tyler W., Newegg
24 March 2015
  • Summary: The track pad is not particularly useful. The issue with it is the sensitivity is too low making you have to pick up your finger over and over to get across the screen. If they fixed it I would be putting the track pad in the pros. It isn't a con because it doesn't diminish my experience with the controller.
  • Pros: First thing to notice about this controller is the build quality. The finish, weight, and buttons/triggers have a professional feel that beats out any controller that I have ever used. With the exception of the X,Y,A,B buttons, I think the xbox controllers do a better job at them but not by much. The analog sticks are smooth as silk and all the buttons have excellent tactile response. What sets this controller apart though is its functionality with Android, which turn...
  • Cons: Price? You pay a premium for this controller but it hasn't detracted from my experience. The streaming services is useless without

Solid

Joseph T., Newegg
22 March 2015
  • Summary: Solid construction. Great controller. Comfortable. Nifty if yet useless touchpad.
  • Pros: Solid construction. Xbox controller rip off with the stick relocated to more playstation/n64'ish feel. I would have preferred the xbox style but it's still very comfortable fit/grip/etc. Touch pad is mildly useless... but a nifty add on. If they gave a qwerty keypad addition similar to the 360 controller this would have been a perfect controller. Bonus that it fits into a portable case.
  • Cons: No cons. Just would have liked to have seen a *slightly* (very) different layout and maybe a qwerty pad or the option of one.

Great idea, bad workmanship

Gregory D., Newegg
19 March 2015
  • Summary: Fix the exterior design please. I, and many, have used nVidia products forever because they're great. This is not.
  • Pros: The device is really responsive on the software side, from the experience I've had playing it. It's fast to load, I love profile switching in accounts that Lollipop offers, and more.
  • Cons: The cons: This thing loves to feature crazy hairline cracks and shotty buttons. The sound button and power button feel unresponsive. The power button does actually BECOME unresponsive and you cant turn it back on. The screen has begun to sprout hairline cracks in random directions and random places, with no seeming pattern at all. It's definitely not at high usage pushing. They're so hairline you can barely see them with your eyes unless you're under bright light but ...

Fastest gaming performance, horrible performance in non-gaming tasks.

Rolando Martinez "Scifi fan", Amazon
19 March 2015
  • Summary: Horrible, I had 2 of these, either I am the unluckiest guy on earth or just got 2 of the same batch, but both were plagued with problems, from random complete freeze of the first tablet, to slowdowns, backlight problems and cracked edges of the 2nd one, YES I HAD 2. Its sad because it truly is one of the fastest gaming tablets out there but the instability of the OS is just unacceptable, yes I love the gaming performance its beyond anything out there but I alos use it to...

Newegg RMA is the best!

Viet N., Newegg
16 March 2015
  • Summary: Since I basically have a DOA tablet, it's great that Newegg gave me a RMA for it, since I really do like it when it doesn't die on me.
  • Pros: When it works, it works! Games play great, good set of stereo speakers, no complaints on my side.
  • Cons: The one I got appears to have a bad SoC, since it first just rebooted, then crashed into graphic garbage, finally just corrupted all video output on the display from boot. First it was just during heavy use, and now it crashes on start up.

Owned the Tablet for about 3 weeks thusfar.

David G., Newegg
16 March 2015
  • Summary: overall a great tablet. the cons are very much so negligable.
  • Pros: outstanding graphics with the tegra. has handled everything i've thrown at it with generous speeds. excellent sound quality from the speakers.
  • Cons: overheats sometimes if you're gaming for a duration without proper airing. the power button got stuck the other day and almost made me think my tablet broke on me already ( luckily it didnt and was just an issue with the button) . Limited to wifi only but that's not an issue if you just bluetooth it to your phone.
