1.0 out of 5 stars frustrating and buggy, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Descent hard ware but the interface is full of bugs and so much of the functionality works only part of the time. Avoid

Update: so the NAS dies less than 1 year old. the end of a disappointing and short life. Lost loads of data due to trusting the in theory safe storage option of Raid 1.

will never ever buy Seagate again.

Just as a kicker the uninstaller of the Blackarmour back up software doesn't even work so can't get it off my laptop.

Simply a terrible product from a terible company. Wish there was a 0 star rating available.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and as advertised, 11 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received my ezcast device promptly and had it working within 10 minutes in ezcast/miracast mode with my Asus android tablet (not tried the other features yet). The key is to download the app from the play store and follow the instructions in the app. Works great have been playing games and watching movies on my big screen tv all day! Will test with pc and girlfriend's iPad and update review.

4.0 out of 5 stars works well, 7 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product which delivers Gooch screen resolution to tv from htc one. One small point is that if your phone is low on charge the product struggles to charge and stream at the same time. For example watching a2 hour movie the charge went from 16℅to 14℅ however given out is using one connection to change and send large volumes of days this is maybe not surprising

4.0 out of 5 stars Best phone on the market, 18 Oct 2013
So having sworn never to buy a HTC again after my Sensation fell apart two years in, a pretty thorough research of what was out there led me to the HTC One. Having had it for a few months now, I'm convinced I bought the best phone out there currently all things considered (all be it at a very expensive price!)

Pros:

Amazing battery life - can get two days out of a charge without compromising usage
Amazing speakers - almost hi-fi quality sound! Really hard to believe from a little phone
Lovely physical design - so slim I sometimes think I've lost it because I can't feel it in my pocket
User interface - I usually hate any move away from fairly stock android, but the latest HTC sense is unique without being too invasive - definitely an improvement from previous incarnations

Cons
Can't take back off/replace battery
No SD card slot to expand memory
Only 32 GB version available in UK (64 GB would allow me to carry a lot more music and make most of those fantastic speakers)

Its not perfect, but the only draw backs are the ones published up front. Everything its meant to do it does fantastically. If it lasts well then I am converted to a long term HTC customer. Would love them to bring out a HTC one tablet with expandable memory etc just to get those speakers in a proper media machine!

5.0 out of 5 stars exceptional, 7 Sep 2013
I ordered this from an importer a few weeks ahead of the uk release so have had a few weeks to test drive. I have to say this tablet is outstanding even before the very low price is considered. Runs high end apps like the grand theft auto games and plays high def video perfectly. Super light. Great display. Expandable memory through micro sd - I've added 64gb so I can carry all my music with me. Asus has created their own floating widgets functionality which is very useful, allowing you to access widgets while using other apps, e.g. controlling media player while web browsing. The trassleeve available from the Asus website is also fantastic. I've owned or used many tablets - android, apple, Microsoft, - but have to say this isbthe best value for money and I absolutely love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Average, 9 Jan 2013

This product is pretty good but has 1 very annoying feature - whenever it is unplugged it reverts back to a horrible default tone and needs to get reset. It gets unplugged a lot because the pass through socket in the front of it doesn't really work properly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but room for improvement, 7 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well after the massive UK release delays, I finally have my Infinity.

Good points:

Extremely fast
1 Great physical construction, lightweight, sturdy and very pretty
2 Very clean Android installation, little/no annoying preloaded software
3 Quick to set up
4 The keyboard dock is brilliant
5 All tech issues from previous transformer lines (GPS, Wifi) have been fixed

Areas for improvement
1 Asus webstorage - the device comes with a free 8gb lifetime subscription, but the software is SO bad I can't for the life of me get it to work (there is no user guide and in programme instructions are in very poor English)
2 Widgets - I'm used to HTC's Sense launcher from my phone, and this is much smoother with far more useful and attractive in built widgets
3 Software - still hasn't caught up with the hardware. This tech is good enough to replace your laptop but there are no office packages etc to compare with Microsoft as yet. In built Polaris is very poor and crashes a lot. 4 Have bought a better one from the market but its still nowhere near as functional as MS products

Overall worth the money and glad I bought it, and its fortunate that all the negatives above are software related and as such should improve after time.
