Monoprice is among the more interesting companies you probably haven’t heard of. Started out of an apartment around a decade ago, the company initially sold everything at a single price, hence the name. That business model may have worked when the product line was mostly cables and connectors, but the company now offers a diverse array that includes monitors (more in a moment), home theatre screens, graphics tablets, headphones, apocket-size pico projector, an action cam, even electric guitars – and, yes, cables, connectors and accessories as well. It’s a lineup with no seeming rhyme or reason, other than quality products at bargain prices.

The Gateway DX4870-UB2B ($499.99 list) is a basic tower desktop PC that checks all the boxes on what you need from a new desktop, particularly if you already have a LCD display that you’re carrying over. It’s speedy for its segment, has capacious storage, will let your family keep many documents open simultaneously, and it’s relatively inexpensive. Unlike the $300 bargain basement specials, the DX4870-UB2B$499.99 at Best Buy comes with a modern Intel Core i3 processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and lots of drive space. It’s expandable, so it can grow with your family. It’s not ground breaking, but it’s a solid choice with a great bang for the buck, so it’s our latest Editors’ Choice for budget desktop PCs.
Design and Features
The DX4870-UB2B follows other Gateway desktops, looking almost identical to the last black tower Gateway DX4870-UB17$329.99 at Newegg.com ($500). Like that model, the DX4870-UB2B comes in a tower chassis with black panels all around, including the plastic front panel and metal side panels. The system’s tray-loading DVD burner is hidden, but two of the system’s USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader, and audio jacks are exposed on the top front of the chassis. In the back, the system has four more USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, more audio jacks, and two connectors for the included WiFi antennas. It would have been nice if the front USB ports were USB 3.0 to accommodate USB hard drives instead of the slower USB 2.0.
The inside of the system is certainly expandable, with plenty of space to move around for future upgrades. The system has space for two additional drives: one optical 5.25-inch bay and one 3.5-inch hard drive bay. Theoretically, you could shoehorn another three to four 2.5-inch notebook class drives in the same space, provided you have the correct brackets to hold the drives. The motherboard has four free SATA ports to service these drives. The system also has two DIMM slots free, along with a slot for a PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics card and two additional PCIe 2.0 x1 expansion cards. One PCIe x1 slot is occupied by the included 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi card, which will serve most users well. This is an improvement over other budget systems like the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190$416.03 at antonline.com ($400) and Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus$448.99 at Amazon ($473), both of which don’t support 5Ghz WiFi, only the more common and crowded 2.4GHz channels.
The last consideration you have to make for expandability is the system’s 300W power supply. While sufficient for additional drives and minor expansion cards, 300W will be insufficient for a high-powered discrete graphics card with Nvidia’s or AMD’s highest end GPUs. You can of course swap out the included power supply, but most budget system buyers never open their chassis, even if they are tempted by the system’s expandability. Bring a screwdriver if you dare, because you’ll need it for the case door and the drive bays. At least the internal card slots are tool-less.
Like other Gateway systems, the DX4870-UB2B comes with quite a few pre-loaded applications and utilities. These include 7digital, Zinio, Kindle, eBay, Chacha, Netflix, NewsXpresso, Amazon, Tunein, Hulu Plus, Xbox Games, Cut The Rope, Stumbleupon, Skype, Merriam-Webster, Britannica, Spotify, Microsoft Office (ad), Norton Internet Security), and Wild Tangetn games. That’s a lot of pre-loaded apps, and most if not all are available for free from Microsoft Windows Store. While you may want to spend a few moments uninstalling all these programs, fret not, since the system has a capacious 1TB hard drive with plenty of free space left. The DX4870-UB2B comes with a standard one-year warranty.
The system comes with a third-generation Intel Core i3-3240 processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, Intel HD Graphics 2500 (integrated in the Core i3 processor), and a 1TB 5,400rpm SATA hard drive. All of these components mean the system is plenty fast on our benchmark tests, certainly faster than the Lenovo Q190 and the Zbox ID83 Plus. That said, there are systems in this price range that are faster, notably the Polywell Nano i3-Q7 ($595) which trades physical and storage space for SSD speed, and the Acer Aspire AT3-600-UR11$449.99 at Newegg.com($600), which has a discrete graphics card and slightly more powerful processor adding to its performance totals. Check the performance chart link to see the final numbers, but suffice to say the DX4870-UB2B has the performance to keep your family happy for the next five years or so.

Other value, the products have passed the test of military standards. According to Ricky Handrian, MDM Business Desktop PC HP Indonesia, standardization include durability, shock, and temperature.
These devices have to endure or withstand heavy overwritten with a maximum weight of 75 kg. In addition, products with military standards must withstand shock, although it has been taken away in a car in the distance.
“Devices that pass this certification should still be able to operate, though it was taken in a truck and suffered shock, for example, 1,000 miles,” said Ricky.

Meanwhile, the desktop version of this device, EliteDesk 800 G1, comes with a slightly higher specification, namely 4-generation Intel Core processor Haswell, Windows 8 Pro, 32 GB RAM, and up to 2 TB HDD.
Carrying the same concept with the EliteBook 800, ProOne 600 HP version of the G1 is the all-in-one PC from HP ProDesk 600 G1. For the problem specification, these two products have the same choice as the Elite 800 series.
So, what distinguishes the two series? According to Ricky, the two series have different processor platforms support. 800 Series uses Intel Q87 platform. While the Pro 600 series using Q85.
“ProDesk Series 600 is a downgraded version of the EliteBook 800. ProDesk device 600 is certainly cheaper than EliteBook 800. Yeah, let’s just ProDesk 600 as the sister of the EliteBook 800,” added Ricky.

Just as smartphones, tablet PCs are now available in the market with a variety of prices and specifications. Like one of these tablet PC products from following SpeedUp present for tablet PC users in the entry level segment.
Concept & Design
Speedup Phone Pad is a tablet PC with 7-inch screen. The design is quite average and quite like tablet PCs in its class with aluminum alloy and plastic body and frame design of the screen is quite thick. Indoors, the display screen itself is quite good and still comfortably viewed with a screen resolution of 1024 × 600 pixels. However, like most local screen tablet PC is rather difficult to see under a blazing lighting conditions. For the body, Speedup Pad Phone has brought unibodi design that makes users can not remove the plastic cover on the back to remove the battery. Overall, light weight, the thickness of the body is quite fit and do not look cheap.
Although it can be used in portrait position, Speedup Pad Phone seems designed to be used in a horizontal position / landscape. This is evident from the presence of a resolution 2-megapixel secondary camera on the top of the screen (in horizontal position) and two speakers are located on the left side of the screen.
For port connectivity, SIM card slot, audio jack port, SD memory card slot and a mini USB port, everything is placed in the left side of the body. All ports and slots are placed pretty well there. But unfortunately, when a memory card slot for a memory card inserted, the memory card is not fully inserted into the body and look a bit obtrusive. Although not a little disturbing but this reduces the aesthetic value of the packaging and less unsightly.

Review SpeedUp Pad Phone
Speedup Pad Phone running the Android operating system Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. The interface is relatively simple with the standard launcher without any touch or customization of the factory. This is a positive value in itself, because this performance with a simple interface feels relatively quickly because it is not burdened with a custom homescreen launcher used by tablet PCs in its class. But, if you are bored with the zoom you can still use another launcher that can be downloaded through PlayStore.

Despite reaching the benchmark value was minimal does not mean the tablet PC is lousy loh. For testing we use everyday is quite impressed with its performance fairly okay. The screen is quite responsive compared to tablet PCs in its class. Switching between pages on the menu and homescreen feels smooth and does not feel significant lag. Even so, there are enough to make us wonder at the launcher SpeedUp Pad Phone. Every time you access a menu that contains a row of application performance is noticeably slow and visible lag. Whereas when pressing the home icon to return to the homescreen all running smoothly. Hopefully edepannya k SpeedUp can provide updates to address bugs like this.
Multimedia and Gaming
For multimedia needs SpeedUp Phone has come up with music app, video player and radio. To watch a movie, we tried HD720p quality movies and 1080p. The default video player application is only able to play a video file format HD720p pretty well. And when running 1080p video file format image can not be displayed. If you want to watch movies in Full HD tablet PC, alternatfinya is using another video app that can be downloaded at Google PlayStore. But you also must be quite satisfied with the performance of the frame rate a bit slow and the battery certainly be more extravagant when playing Full HD content.
In addition to watching movies, Speedup Pad Phone can also be used for listening to music. But unfortunately, good for watching movies, listening to music, or playing games, performing voice though it is set at the maximum level still feels underpowered. Not only that, the capacity of internal storage space is only 4GB is also noticeably less if you save the video files in HD format, and music file format. FLAC or. WAV file size is generally large. But luckily still available memory card slot that can be used to increase the storage space up to a maximum capacity of 32GB.
And as an alternative to your current mobile entertainment, this tablet PC can still be relied upon to play the game. To play the games lightly with a simple display such as Angry Birds and Tiny Thief is a very capable tablet PC to play it. And what about the 3D games that require heavy graphics performance? We try to play racing game Real Racing 3. The result? Speedup Pad Phone can still be counted on to play a decent 3D game Real Racing 3 weight class pretty well.
