In this post, we picked the top 5 best DSLR cameras on the market this year. So regardless of whether you’re looking for a camera to start filmmaking or photography or if you just want the best of the best, they’ll make the professionals jealous. We’ll have an option for you so if you’re interested in finding out which DSLR will be best for you continue reading.

Coming up with this list we heavily factored in price because DSLR cameras range from anywhere between $400 to $4,000 and we wanted to make sure we include the best products based on price versus performance, will a $4,000 camera outperform a $500 camera, probably, but we’re asking is the extra money really worth the difference in quality and we intend to find out. All the links to all the products mentioned in this posts will be in the marked in text down below or images.

Nikon D3300

First up, we have the Nikon D3300 our best budget DSLR the D3300 may have been replaced of the D3400 but that’s no reason to discount this entry-level DSLR in fact as D3400 cost a little bit more the prices are continuing to fall the D3300 is the better buy right now the D3300 features a high resolution 24.2 mph C sensor pretty impressive when you consider the enthusiast focus D7200 shares the same resolution and costs quite a bit more. Like the rest of the range, the D3300 sensor does away with a low-pass filter. Which means even more details captured resulting in even sharper images. There are a host of special effects on tap allowing you to jazz up JPEG files and videos with a collection of styles.

Left on his boost to the list of effects – 13 for the D3300 and it now includes pop which increases color saturation toy camera which creates a retro effect and easy panorama these effects can be previewed in real time on the LCD screen so you can see exactly what you’ll get once you trigger the shutter. The D3300 is the second DSLR from Nikon choose a Monaco key construction this means that the chase is made from a single piece of material making it both lighter and stronger compared to the D3200. There is a huge number of buttons on the D3300 which is to be expected of an entry-level camera on the top plate you’ll find the mode dial for switching between exposure modes such as fully automatic aperture priority and the newly incorporated effects mode also on the top plate.

You’ll find the exposure compensation button for using automatic and semi-automatic modes and an info button which helpfully turns off the video display preventing it from being a distraction while using the viewfinder autofocusing speeds are pretty high especially in daylight or well at conditions. As expected the D3300 has excellent resolving power zooming in images to 100% reels that very fine details can be seen happily we’ve not come across any examples of more patterning when shooting stills overall this is a quality entry-level DSLR coming in at the lowest price range for reasonable camera good for photos and passable for filmmaking camera.

Canon Rebel T5i

Next up is the Canon Rebel T5i, our best entry-level DSLR or the best DSLR for beginners. The T5i uses an APS-C sensor that’s similar in size to its competitors. It is however a little older and therefore lags behind a dynamic range color depth and low-light performance. The T5i is capable of producing great-looking photographs, but it’s not going to perform quite as well in adverse lighting conditions. When you just expose your settings the image preview is updated in real time. This makes it easy to understand the effects of changing aperture, shutter speed and ISO. It may seem insignificant to some, these helpful features facilitate learning, they make this camera one of the best DSLRs for beginners.

The T5i is well designed for shooting video and feels more natural in this roll than some of its competitors. Switching in video mode is quick and once there, the T5i is articulating screen makes it easy to shoot and adjust settings from any angle, in fact this is very commonly the entry-level of the most popular YouTubers today. Perhaps its greatest strengths in video mode is its high quality kit lens unlike competitor’s lenses canons lenses are smooth and silent auto focusing. This means you can continuously autofocus in video mode without your onboard microphone picking up distracting sounds from the lens.

The T5i is a very good camera it offers a well-designed video mode and silent lens for filming, as well as unique beginner-friendly features, like intuitive touch screen controls to facilitate learning. These features make the Rebel T5i an excellent choice for budding videographers and photographers.

Canon 80D

Next up is the Canon EOS 80D, our best value for the money. For the advanced to amateur photographer Canons double digit series of DSLRs has always been appealing. Typically blending and comprehensive specs with the body only price that falls just below $1,000. However with competition in the high-end enthusiast DSLR segment intensifying, new models have needed to offer something new or unique to stay one step ahead. Photographers who like to track moving subjects will appreciate having the option to select AI servo in Live View mode. It’s also good as he can and adding extra control of the dual pixel CMOS autofocus sensitivity from the custom function menu. This allows users to adapt the focus to the shooting situation and create slow natural or fast focusing transitions when shooting using the viewfinder the 80D features a newly developed autofocus module that is a big upgrade on the 70D. There are now 45 autofocus points compared to the 19 on the 70d and all of these are cross types. The autofocus system isn’t too dissimilar from the Canon EOS 80D mark 4 and out of the 45 points, 27 remain active when using a teleconverter and lens combination with a maximum aperture of f/8.

The 80D doesn’t feature 4k video but it does provide videographers with the option to shoot full HD or 1920 by 1080 movies up to 60 P and the mp4 or the MOV file format. Full control of audio levels can be taken directly from the touch screen this is also tougher camera for filming video. It’s the camera of choice for many famous YouTube filmmakers. Videographers will be pleased to know that Canon has carefully considered the placement of the microphone and headphone inputs. To ensure the screen can be fully articulated when audio components are plugged in. One of my criticisms regarding the design of the abd is Canons decision not to include a dual card slot an extremely useful storage feature for both backup as well as overflow should you reach your cards capacity. For amateurs and enthusiasts the 80D is a well rounded and highly capable aps-c DSLR that’s worth a close look. In our opinion it is the best value for the money, with an ability to make high-quality pictures and capture terrific video at a price below some of their high quality cameras.

Nikon D810

As a runner-up we have the Nikon D810 which is nearly $1,000 less than our top pick the. D810 is the camera that replaces the classic D800 and the 800E it’s a full-frame 36,3 megapixel camera that offers some of the best images you can get from any DSLR. Nikon claims it produces the finest photos of any of its cameras ever for serious and professional photographers 2700 asking price won’t seem as intimidating as it does to most people. Nikon has not rocked the boat with the D810 design but there are a few little changes here and there. The hand grip has changed a bit offering greater contouring for index finger on the front grip and more pronounced thumb grip on the rear, the weatherproofing has been altered to.

Like the D800 the Nikon D810 is fully weather proofed but now the rubber flaps to keep the water out or split up a bit more instead of using one flap to cover the HDMI, USB and headphone jack there are now separate ones. the Nikon D810 uses an RGB W screen rather than a standard RGB one the final white sub pixel is used to increase maximum brightness without consuming too much power. The Nikon D810 also misses out on a few connectivity features that are now all but assumed in much cheaper cameras. Wi-Fi and GPS are not built-in instead you need to feature separate adapters to have those features this is disappointing and quite odd.

Given how far these features have spread down the price range among more mainstream cameras as you’d hope from a DSLR of this pedigree autofocus speed is excellent. Especially for not using Live View mode, which limits the Nikon d810 a contrast detection autofocus this is a 51 point focusing system and we found it to be extremely fast even in poor lighting conditions. Nikon has rather dramatically expanded the ISO range of the D810 over the D800 giving the new camera a huge native ISO range of 64 12800. Naturally the noise reduction engine cuts into the fine detail a little bit more substantially as you work further up the ISO range but the results remain impressive even the extreme high ends of the range ISO 25 600 to 51 200 the results are just about usable in an emergency such as the power of a great full-frame sensor. Overall a nearly $1,000 less than a topic this is a solid professional level camera that would make great for a cheaper substitute for someone looking to produce high-quality images.

Canon EOS 5D Mark 4

Our last pick and our best overall DSLR camera is the Canon EOS 5D Mark 4. If you’ve picked up a 5D Mark 3 before you are know the quality produces its a moderately sized full frame body measuring 4.6 by 5.9 by 3 inches and weighing in at 1 point 8 pounds. Their grip allows you to use two batteries to power the camera and CIP rates a fully charged battery to net nine hundred shots via the viewfinder and three hundred using the rear LCD. The optical viewfinder is bright and clear and it covers 100% of the frame so what you see is what you shoot, and it is quite bright due to its glass pentaprism design. It’s not so large delivering a point 71 magnification rating just about standard for this class the 5D Mark 4 fits comfortably in your hands thanks to a deep accommodating grip that provides comfortable access to the depth of field preview button. Next to the lens mount and shutter release top the grip even for those with short stubby fingers. Rear controls include menu and info which sit just below the on-off switch a column of buttons run below them to the left of the LCD picture style split view great zoom playing delete GPS and Wi-Fi are both built in. You’ll need to enable GPS if you want location metadata added to all of your images though it is a useful tool for landscape photographers is it lets you know exactly where you were when you captured an image. When working in professional or studio environments the 5D Mark 4 also supports image transfer to an FTP server via Wi-Fi you can set the camera to large or small jpg or RAW images and choose between automatic or manual image transfer.

The 5D Mark 4 is a fine tool for capturing quick candid moments, it starts focuses and captures an image in about 0.5 seconds. The autofocus is likewise speedy, the 5D locks on the targets in less than 0.1 seconds in bright light when framing shots with optical viewfinder the 5D shoots and tracked subjects at 7 fps and continuous drive mode. When paired with the UDM a 760 Mpbs sandjas compact flash memory card it can keep that pace for 16 raw N jpg or 23 ball shots. When shooting JP G’s you don’t have to worry about a shot limit the 61 point autofocus system is very similar to the one in the 1D X mark 2 the 5D mark 4 focuses almost as quickly as Live View as it does when using the optical viewfinder. One of the ballyhooed new features is the dual pixel overall shooting format since each pixel is split into two halves the support phase detection focus each captures a slightly different view of the scene.

Dual pixel Raw lets you leverage that offset view to perform minor adjustments to the focus changing the way out of focus areas and reducing ghosting. The 5D mark 4 has a new 30mph sensor it’s the first time we’ve seen as particularly at a full-frame camera and if the livers on the promise to bounce resolution and high iso performance. Overall if you’re looking for a very highly quality professional level camera in which you can produce the highest quality video and photos then look no further than the canon EOS 5D mark 4.

Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse review https://www.ratinghardware.com/logitech-g602-wireless-gaming-mouse-review https://www.ratinghardware.com/logitech-g602-wireless-gaming-mouse-review#respond Thu, 12 Dec 2013 15:28:58 +0000 https://www.ratinghardware.com/?p=2580

Is it time to cut the cord?
A LOT OF GAMERS STILL have the idea that a true gaming mouse can’t be wireless-that wireless mice lag and are unreliable and will totally wreck your K/D in Call of Duty. Fortunately, that idea has been proven wrong repeatedly recently, as multiple companies have released high-quality wireless gaming mice. With the G602, Logitech has pounded another nail in that myth’s coffin.

Logitech G602 image 3

Logitech G602 pic 1The Logitech G602 is a wireless mouse with a solid, all-purpose set of features. It has plenty of buttons, including a bank of six bindable keys accessible to your thumb, which allows it to work fairly well for MMO or FPS gameplay.

It’s long, with a high-arched design that will work best for those who prefer a full-palm grip, and the construction is topnotch. A rubber pad on the palm makes the mouse easy to hold on to, and the textured plastic around the sides of the mouse feels very durable.

 

Logitech G602 pic 2The Logitech G602 isn’t rechargeable, but it is designed for extreme longevity. Logitech claims that in gaming mode, a single set of two AA batteries will last for 250 hours. During our testing, we weren’t able to make a dent in the battery meter, so we’re not inclined to disagree.

 

Logitech G602 pic 3In order to provide longer battery life, Logitech went with an optical sensor. We found the tracking to be quite good, though th ma 1mu”1 2 500 dpi nd SOOH2 po ltng rat might be too low for some gamers. Logitech’s software is usually solid, and the G602 is no exception.

If you’re looking for a wireless-only mouse with plenty of features for any type of gaming, you won’t be  disappointed by the G602.

Key Features

– Up to 250 hours of battery life1
– Power-saving, high-accuracy Delta Zero sensor technology
– Lag-free gaming-grade wireless
– Performance and Endurance modes maximize battery life
– Long-life buttons rated to 20 million clicks
– 11 programmable buttons for customized game control2
– On-the-fly adjustable DPI
– For Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X 10.6.8 or higher

ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6

Hi all, this is review of ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6, this obviously is the ASUS attempt to attract attention in a so-called tablet class devices, with their bigger usually more than 5-inch display and phone capabilities they are supposed to make this smart phone experience much more useful in terms of productivity and why not in your entertainment experience.

The name on this phone gives you a clue about the screen size 6 inch capacitive touchscreen with averagely think profile of the tablet and pretty white bezel around the edges especially on top and bottom side due to the sound speakers place on front.

ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 review 7Our test unit had white shiny surface it might be a fingerprint magnet but this is not easily visible thanks to the bright color, you can choose the black version of course where the fingerprints might be a problem.

The back panel is not removable therefore the batteries is not accessible. Small-cap gives you access to the micro SIM and micro SD card slots. The devices all made of plastic but it is a bit heavy even for its size. This is probably because it have the larger battery capacity and the sound speakers, however the size and weight is the only thing you’ll need to get used to, apart from that everything else looks and feels great to build quality is nice and solid and the screen looks fantastic.

ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 review 6We have a full HD resolution here providing excellent pixel density. When it is about colors and viewing angles for me it’s about IPS or not. The Phone Pad Note 6 is equipped with super IPS display which means nothing but a great visual experience.

The device is powered by the latest intel mobile platform which impressed me with the fast in smart Android experience. No doubt this device is made for productivity and so its hardware is, capable of playing even some heavier android games. ASUS are very proud of the graphics provided by the Intel Clover Trail Plus platform inside. But in addition to the power phone pad note 6 brings everyday productivity as well.

ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 review 8We used to see stylus attached to such devices in Phone Pad Note 6 is not an exception. Accompanied by the necessary software it allows you to get the most up the large screen in hardware inside taking notes or editing pictures taken by the camera or just print-screen is not the problem. One very nice idea I found was the small software tool notifying you when the stylus is detached and inactive for too long, it gives you an idea of its latest active location.

The sound was more than convenient for the size and the tablet. As I already mentioned it is a dual speaker equiped much like the most of the new ASUS tablets. The headset in the box was another nice surprise with its deep and clear sound. The battery life, also great, the capacity of 3200 mili amper hours should be enough to take you long after the working day is over. Above all the price of ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 is a promising one, it is expected to be way cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which might be a device of premium class but it almost doubles the price on the ASUS Fonepad Note FHD 6 if purchased unlocked.

Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina Haswell Review 6
Review

Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013

Today we look at what’s going to be one of the hotter notebooks probably for the year this is the late 2013 addition Mac Book Pro 13 inch, now that means retina because they’re doing away with a non retina displays.
Apple’s latest generation MacBook Pro 13-inch they’ve dropped that word retina that from the product title but this is indeed a Retina Display.

Just this week they announced the new Macbook Pro 13-inch and 15-inch models ,and you’ll notice that all the non retina miles are gone except for the base model 13 Inch. You can still get non retina 13-inch for now, but it’s only a hundred dollars cheaper so honestly why would you do, it has last generation CPU uses spinning hard drive all that kind of things.

This one heare is all the goodness in the retina but a lower price than it used to be and we always had issued the price on the thirty nation we got inside now it’s not such a bad value at all. Actually when you get here you get a 13-inch Retina Display 2560 by 1600 pixels very very sharp, intel haswell inside and here’s an important point and this really will make a difference for those you do very computing intensive tasks.

Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina Haswell Review 5Instead of the ultrabook ULV or now called ULT CPU using here we have full mobile CPU as other ones are usualy used on bigger laptops. I mean that your average 15 inch laptops in the 17 inch laptop a rather than a little skinny ultrabooks. So more computing power inside your relative to ultrabooks with ULV an ULT haswell CPU’s inside now includes the MacBook Air. Thats what you’re paying some more money for this one is $1299 the Mac Book Air has a lower resolution display an ULV and ULV use again and that one is cheaper.
Obviously couple hundred dollars more gets you a good bit. Now speaking about the Mac Book Air this is not a very heavy machine either 3.46 pounds, I’ll call it three and a half pounds it is a half pound heavier than the MacBook Air half pound heavier than most ultrabooks on the market, they are tending to be about three punds. So it’s not much more, to be honest I do noticed the weight difference when I pick it up though it had been carrying a MacBook Air or whatever other windows Ultrabooks, you do notice to have pounds not quite as “oh my god it’s so feather light I can’t believe it”. But still it is only three and half pounds and it’s not really heavy.

Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina Haswell Review 3So for those of you who really wanna an ultrabook to you do massive Excel spreadsheets with 10,000 rows, view and edit HD video that’s our thing this becomes more tempting becasuse it has more processing horsepower. We also have Intel iris graphics inside it HD 5100 so it’s not the fastest of the Intel HD Graphics but it is noticeably faster than the Intel HD 4400 used on ultrabooks with ULT CPU inside and even faster than the 5000 graphics.
It’s about comparable to a lower-end dedicated GPU maybe like nVidia GT 630 or 640 to give you an idea the mobile and versions of those. So it is enough to give you a little kick to play something like Diablo or World of Warcraft 3.

Typical other Mac Book Pro design is pretty much the same thickness all the way around beautiful attention to detail we don’t have to tell you about that. I mean the fit and finish on this is perfect beautiful aluminum unibody design.
Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina Haswell Review 2Bottom with the usual rubber feet, honestly folks there is no point in taking the bottom of this machine, because it’s pretty much not repairable if you open it up, you gonna have to send it to Apple, if the batteries are glued inside for example. You could get to the SSD Drive you want to replace it now thats uses of the new PCIe with the gumstick form factor SSD those are pretty hard to find right now. RAM is soldered on board. The airport wireless card 802.11ac Broadcom chips inside, that is socket and that is upgradeable to. So typical again of ultrabooks there is not allowed to get to the battery in fact a little bit more obnoxious. I have noticed that it actually have some air vents, that’s niceee Apple finally make concessions to design and realize that these machines do need to breed, so not just the vents right where the display meets the body of the laptop anymore, little extra.

Generaly speaking it’s pretty quiet it’s metal in the bottom you can feel some heat if you doing something like I was playing Diablo 3 at it’s not gonna fry your skin of if you are wearing shorts but you probably wouldn’t want it against your legs if you are doing something computing intensive. If you just using web browser and email no it’s gone not gonna get warm. Fan is typically hardly on and that’s normal for Apple these days they really don’t like to run the fans unless they have to. Again if you doing something like Diablo 3 or some massive computing kind of endeavor and then the fans will kick on particularly if you are doing 3d gaming you’ll hear the fan blowing just like you will on any laptop.

Key specifications:
Mac safe two pair of conectors, we have two Thunderbolt 2 ports now, even faster, USB 3.0 port, combo mic headphone jack, on the other side we have another USB 3.0 port, full-size HDMI port and a micro SDXC SD card slot. So kind of typical ports for apple.

Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina Haswell Review 6When you lift up the display you’ll got a little place to grab on it and you will see inside the usual apple great trackpad nice large glass trackpad does multi-touch gestures very smoothly you know they make the best as long as you’re running Mac OS. So this is the important part to get because I know a lot of you gonna say what about this compared to the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus the Acer Aspire S7 Windows machines. What operating system do you wanna run Mac’s are awesome when you are running Mac OS 10 by the way the ships at Maverick’s the latest greatest operating system 10.9 from apple.
Great machine to buy if you wanna run Mac OS 10 or if you can use parallels in just occasionally visit the world the Windows arent maybe more than occasionally but for those people who just want to permanently boot camp into Windows on these I would said just go get Windows machines to start with.

Usual awesome keyboard, backlighting, ambient light sensor works well, but you can adjust the backlighting levels. Always Apple makes really nice responsive keyboards. And the crown jewel of this machine is off course this stunning Retina display right here, ever lovely, we are still looking to see is there any screen burning issue like I have with my first-generation retina 15-inch so far haven’t seen any and it does take some time to get images that temporarily burn and again this is a temporary problem that does happen. This is a lovely display, now the retina displays have always been quite good but in terms of a color accuracy 100% of sRGB.

Apple MacBook Pro Late 2013 Retina Haswell Review 4As I mentioned this comes at OS 10 Maverick’s which is the latest and greatest and as you know apple is now made OS updates free so never have to worry about that again. And we have the baseball here to $1299 model with 2.4 gigahertz Intel Core i5 CPU with turbo boost 4GB of ddr3 RAM on board at 120GB PCIe SSD and that memory is DDR3L memory which haswell requires. Specifically the CPU’s the i5-4258U and again it has Intel iris 5100 graphics. At a 28W CPU is opposed to lower wattage ultarabooks CPU and that’s where you’re getting your power from.

There is no internal optical drive Apple doesn’t put that on their retina Mac’s and it seems to be disappearing from laptops right and left unless they’re fairly large, but you can use an external Thunderbolt, USB you name it optical drive at this if you need to install software from CD’s or access anything that’s on the CD. Mac OS does not natively support blue ray. The battery that is sealed inside this unit is 71.8W/h lithium ion polymer battery,  and apples is good for 9h thanks to haswell they’ve actually increased the battery runtime up from the old 13-inch retina machines.
And that’s the late 2013 13-inch Mac Book Pro with Retina display and Intel Haswell inside and certainly it’s quite a lineup for the money now.

Acer Chromebook C720 Review

Today we’re going to take a look at the newest from Chromebook from Acer “Acer Chromebook C720”. “Intel Haswell” inside makes it more powerful than the average Chromebook but it is still very affordable $249 based on prices at “Best Buy Amazon” and places like that.

Acer C720 is latest Chromebook but pretty much Samsung and Acer have been the two big players in Chromebook of course Google had their own branded “Google Chromebook Pixel” which is a much much much more expensive item. Most products are affordable things and at that this is one of the most affordable at $249 at this moment, this is a new generation Chromebook this is this C720 while there are places in the C710 its bit thinner and so they lighter, about a quarter pound lighter. So it’s always nice to see improvements in portability 11,6″ design right here, genuine plastic everywhere (what do you expect, these are the new netbooks so it’ll be doing a lot of plastic here, but it’s rugged enough you’d probably survive being used by your child, your more responsible child anyway).

Take a look on the side here we can see we have USB 3.0 port, our combo audio jack, full-size HDMI port, power connector. The nice thing about the full-size HDMI here isn’t just that you have that tort which is conveniant but this actually has a more powerful CPU inside this is intel haswell generation and don’t get too excited this is still a Celeron model CPU those who follow intel on all know thats are always a “low man on the totem poles” as 1.4 gigahertz dual-core, no turbo boost here, but still up from last generation non haswell that we had in the previous model and that one was collected 1 gigahertz so you definietly geting improvements here.

Acer Chromebook C720 Review image 1Intel HD integrated graphics on this, again don’t expect too much for the money this is not about high inspect, this is about easy functionality for basic stuff that you gonna do, like web-based things, email all that sort of thing, at a minimal price but the reasonably sturdy design. USB 2.0 port right here lock slot right there and a full-size SD card slot. we do have fanned holes here and on the bottom says this is not a mobile kinda CPU like the Samsung Exynos used in some other Chromebook models regular old PC style CPU so fate is gonna come on occasion is not going to be referring the latter anything like that still a pretty low-power mobile CPU in there and these are our stereo speakers here with the grills on the bottom.

When we open it up and take a look inside we have instant on resume from sleep here and boots very quickly if you ever really fully shut it down which is not too much even need to do. Mate display inside, that’s a good news, 1366 by 768 resolution which is kind a standard resolution among smaller netbooks these as and we’re not going to complain it is a TN panel that means that you do have to do some angling back and forth to get the best viewing angle, but it is improve from first-generation Chromebooks which had absolute visual displays also they were pretty neat idea but the display is really held them back. So well this may not be fighting the IPS panel & HP is in their Chromebook 11 it’s not a bad idea. I’m seen actually worse on 500 dolar notebooks viewing angles will diminish not as much from the side that you can see how quickly they go now the displacer on obviously is glossy you can see reflections on black shiny plastic but that really shouldn’t bother you folks very much.
Acer Chromebook C720 Review image 2Keyboard  is nice large keyboard given the fact that this is a very small device. Trackpad as chromebook trackpads works fine it supports two finger scrolling things like that it’s so far behaved pretty well for me. You can use USB mice and keyboards with this, if you wanna do that, that’s pretty easy most supported even those wireless ones that come with RF transmitter generally will work with this.

Printing with chromebooks is another thing to get into Google’s cloud printing service you can just plug in your printer install drivers like you a for Windows are mac/pc. So what makes c720 a cool chromebook its more powerful than most now granted you don’t need a super duper lot of horsepower for operating system Chrome OS it basically is just cool web browser now this is a bit more going on than just a web browser pretty much everything they do is based on the Chrome web browser that’s included.

That how I do noticed some performance improvements in the working on long documents using Google Docs something like that we’re compatible document and we have a 1.4 ghz, as I mentioned, fourth-generation intel haswell Celeron CPU inside dual-core 4 GB ddr3 RAM most chromebooks had 2 GB RAM so that means you can get more apps running at once or more well tabs shall we say in this case running at once. So you got the image editor running in one you’ve got Word or Excel document open in on another while the music player going to get you to play you will have enoug RAM to do that without worrying about slowing it down.

Acer Chromebook C720 Review image 316 GB SSD Drive inside, you don’t get much storage generally speaking though there have been a few chromebooks they’ve had 320 GB spinning hard drives by Acer made one of those. but the operating system doesn’t really require much space there’s i you supose to be working primarily on the cloud reading stored up in the Coud. You can use the SD card slot augment storage, off course you can use USB flash drives to.

It has dual band wifi 11 BGN this small does not have 3G or 4G, chromebooks used to really emphasize using 4G, 3G that kinda thing or even the wifi and now more more we seeing offline access you can do offline Google Docs work right now, you can use a whole bunch if they call them chrome apps.

Despite the relatively fast CPU and you can see here that on the bottom the battery is sealed inside. Battery life on this has been pretty good Acer claims eight-and-a-half hours usually manufactured are optimistic, and we’ve been saying about eight with mixed use on this so that’s actually pretty good for whatsone of most powerful Chromebooks their 39-50 miliamp per hour 3-cell lithium-ion battery inside.

Weight is 2.76 pounds so is pretty light pretty portable easy to carry not to think. For the price it’s not that bad looking, granted again it’s not as stylish as HP’s new Chromebook 11 but its it’s perfectly fine for the  price and for those who want the performance over the looks and the prettiness that kinda thing, well certainly makes the case for the C720.

And for those who are new to Chrome OS the idea again is basic Chrome OS is the chrome web browser, it’s not like at Windows PC or Mac where we have a full operating system and you can install programs EXE kinda programs on this. Everything you can do is gonna be based on things that can run inside the Chrome Web browser they have short cuts down here did things that were just a web browser itself to Gmail basically Google Docs, Google sheet, Google spreadsheet Google Play Music, YouTube player app’s right here and presented in a sort of android like way.

Acer Chromebook C720 Review image 4So lets say you want to add more stuff to this how do you do that you go to the Google Chrome store the we can take a look at the selections like communications, news, weather so we have Gmail offline, Twitter temblor Facebook all the usual stuff.

Because this is one big web browser obviously anything you can do in a web browser you can do with this device you can go to Facebook’s web page you can even go trough the office 365 site and run office 365 how are we not gonna get quite all the features here via the Chrome Web browser that included on this device.
And here in the offline at section for those who worry about not always having an internet connection you can see what’s available there then we very easily download again Google Gmail, offline Google Drive, pocket, Kindle Cloud Reader which will thats sort of online sort offline more games, you get the idea.
So once again the pointer this is if you blog a lot if you Facebook a lot if is Google services particularly Gmail Google for doing your MS Office compatible kinda work this is the device for you. If you need to install Photoshop this is not the device for you, you can’t do that here anything you can do in a web browser you can do with this device there’s also a basic found manager.
If we want to look at an image we better image preview and say I wanna go ahead ended I just choose the edit button and basic things cropping brightness rotation that certain stuff. So we’re not talking about a Photoshop substitute right here and you may have some online counterparts image adding that you prefer, but you can work with your own documents are a flash either SD cards like anything and you can pick these things up on your own Google drive too. and you can share them pretty easily with an email as a gmail address.
And since this is Google, we have YouTube as well, again you have also accessed here Google play movie. Any website that you go to that supplies html5 video also play just fine too. So that is the Acer Chromebook C720, for $249 if you need something that can get web browsing on social networking email some like office talking to work even a little bit if I do everything he can do the job. So and the new netbook from the world isn’t it. Honestly it’s very powerful as as these things go other than a Chromebook pixel course which is a much more expensive device getting more “horsepower” here than you do with them in a HP Chromebook 11 so it’s worth a look if you’re interested in Chromebooks.
