I figured some users might want a long-term review for tablets, be it to judge the reputation of a manufacturer or for buying second-hand tablets. My tablet and I are fast reaching our two-year anniversary (still about a month and a half short), but I figured this is as good a time as any to write a review. I won't be doing any benchmarking or describing its features since these can be found in any fresh review; I'm just going to describe my setup, and mention any relevant experiences with regards to its long-term performance, such as battery life and heat issues. Setup All T4210 parts are stock except for memory, which is a pair of Mushkin 1GB DDR2 667 modules. The harddrive is stock Fujitsu SATA 80GB. On a normal school semester the T4210 spends about 50/50 of its time between tablet mode and laptop mode. I take notes and study from my e-textbooks in tablet mode, and do analytical coding (in MATLAB) as well as web-browsing in laptop mode. Back at home (or in the dormitory), I use it with a laptop stand, external keyboard and mouse, and store most of my stuff on an external hard drive. This helped minimise wear on the keyboard and touchpad, and possibly on hard drive usage as well. If you use your tablet keyboard and touchpad more intensively you might experience a greater rate of wear than noted here. I'm using some cheap overhead projector transparencies cut to size to serve as screen protectors, held in place by 3M clear tape. This works well and is cost-effective, even though they need replacing every 6 months to maintain good screen visibility. I underclocked the processor to about 75% speed and voltage as low as 1.0875V (11X) on battery mode using NHC. It holds up well under such underclocking, though this setup seems to cause it to BSOD occasionally for no apparent reason (about once a month). It has enabled me to squeeze up to 6 hours battery life, using only Windows Journal, out of my main battery before (which may be part of the reason why it's dead now...) I just bought a slim remote control that plugs in via USB, when not in use it can be stored in the PC card slot (USB dongle and all). That makes it really portable (and makes me feel good knowing I found a use for the slot, heh). I haven't missed the lack of an ExpressCard at all. Usage E-book reading with the T4210 was a cinch; in portrait mode at fullscreen view a letter-size textbook fits perfectly in the 4:3 ratio screen. The button arrangement makes it easy to read with my left arm supporting the tablet and gripping it near the buttons, which keeps my right hand free. Data Analysis (in MATLAB) So far performance is good, definitely not as good as a modern home desktop but it is on par with, if not better than the 3.8GHz Pentium 4 desktop I use in my lab. Encoding/decoding (lossless audio, h264 video) The T4210 had no problems with FLAC decoding, as expected. It does have some problems with h264 video at 720p and above. Out of the 720p videos I tried, some played somewhat smoothly, while others stuttered a little. 1080p videos were downright unwatchable. The codec used was from CCCP, perhaps better performance might be expected from the CoreAVC codec instead but I have yet to test this. General usage The T4210 multitasks well with its aged but decent Core Duo T2400 processor. Heavy usage causes some lagginess, but it is very stable on XP Tablet PC SP3 and hardly dies on me. Comments on tablet condition The T4210 is generally in really good condition. It was in a minor traffic accident which caused the LCD screen to crack (the AC adapter 3-pin plug poked it through the outer chassis), and left some dents in the outer screen chassis. Repairs were costly (~820SGD), and the tablet was returned to me with an overtightened hinge, but I never reported it since it made stylus usage in laptop mode much easier. The power jack port is also slightly dented, I can't remember how it came to be that way, I think I set it down a little too hard or something. In any case, its condition has not deteriorated and it is still holding up well. With 6-monthly screen-protector changes, weekly wipedowns (with Kleenex) and monthly cleanings (with gauze swabs and 70% isopropyl alcohol) the tablet is still looking really good. However, due to the screen being flush with the bezel, the screen gets really close to the keyboard when closed in laptop mode. If enough pressure is exerted on the screen it starts to scuff the palmrests, causing some small pockmarks on the palmrest edges. From a distance they're not that noticeable, though up close they're probably unsightly to picky people. I also reformat and reinstall every 6 months, more out of habit (and maybe some degree of OCD) than necessity. The last reformat might have gone slightly awry, as my SD card reader fails to read some of my SD cards now (a Toshiba 1GB, and a SanDisk UltraII SD Plus 2GB), but reads others just fine (SanDisk ExtremeIII 2GB). In addition, the screen has an annoying habit of just switching off irrecoverably when in battery mode. No amount of keyboard/touchpad/stylus input would restore it, and the only way to bring it back is standby->wake. It might be due to my underclocking activities, but I haven't tried undoing the underclocks to see if that fixes it. New Fujitsu users should be aware that pressing the PgUp/PgDn tablet buttons too quickly will cause the tablet to lock up and BSOD. It is not recommended to click them more than twice per second. My main battery is dead and doesn't provide more than 1 hour's charge on idle, so I'm mainly living off the modular bay battery which still provides 4-5 hours battery life (when reading PDFs). I guess I should have been more careful not to overdrain it too much. Freezing the main battery didn't help restore it. Battery wear isn't covered under the warranty so I guess I'll be buying a new one from janashoes. ---------- I'll be adding more as they come to mind. If you would like certain issues or questions about the T4210 addressed feel free to PM me or add to this thread as well.
