It does not have a on-off button. Instead it has a rubber type switch which is very difficult to use. I have gifted this hand blender to my mum but she is not at all happy with it.
No one can use it consistently in ON position. It needs very firm finger pressure on the rubber to switch it on. I wish if philips would not have experimented the new switch with this blender, consumers would have been happier :(
I bought dv4 3016tx 2 months ago. It give nice performance on windows (5.9 on windows experience index)
Usb 3.0 is gives good data transfer speed with supported devices.
But when it comes to linux, this laptop is hell. Its too difficult to find linux drivers for its hardware components.
Touchpad does not work, neither does 2 ports of USB 3.0
Battery drains quickly and screen brightness can not be adjusted. Graphics card can not be configured. 3016tx becomes a dumbo box with linux (I tested it with ubuntu 11.04, Mint 11 Katya, and BackTrack 5)
Although one can overcome some of short comings of this machine on linux while using linux as virtual machine.
So concluding my review, I would recommend it for windows user. I faced no issues whatsoever.
But I would strictly not recommend this notebook for linux users.
I bought after finding its rating 4+ on flipkart. But ratings are sometimes misleading and unfortunately, this time, I became the victim of misleading reviews and ratings.
I used this product for 3 months. Its dead now.
When I purchased, its scrolling wheel was not working properly. I ignored that and continued using it. Its size is really small. So it was bit hard to use. On the first day itself, I realized that its not the best buy..
But I did not knew that I have to rush to service center just after a month. I got it repaired when it first got dead. Received the repaired mouse after 1 week.
It became dead again after 1 month from repair. It was very frustrating. Service center is at considerable distance from my home. And its costs me 100 bucks to and fro fair from service center.
But considering that I will never buy zebronics product again, I went to service center last time. This time, the pathetic service took 20 days. I had to fight with the service center employee on phone to get back the mouse.
And thanks to awesome quality of zebronics, mouse went dead again in 20 days. Still 8-9 months warranty is remaining. But I don't have patience to go again to service center.
It the most awful purchase of my life..
