The review is perhaps the most thorough I’ve seen to date, and well documented in photos and video as well. If you’ve been thinking about the Thrive, Brad’s review really covers all of the high, and low, points of the tablet. It is generally favorable, but as we’ve seen with other reviews, whether or not the Thrive is right for you really comes down to size & weight vs. expansion. If the full size ports are useful to you – easy connection to external displays via full size HDMI, the ability to use full size SD cards up to 128GB, connecting USB drives, and USB HID devices (keyboards & mice). With a USB hub you can connect a keyboard, mouse, and external drive, and practically turn it into a PC. The trade off is, of course, a tablet that is physically larger and heavier than its peers. So you have to weigh the options – maybe literally.
