HotHardware's Tablets Of The Season SweepstakesWe're back again to roll out two more lucky winners for our Tablet's of The Season Sweepstakes with NVIDIA!  We know you probably can't stand the excitement of witnessing all this Tegra 2 goodness being spread about like holiday cheer but we're going to keep the adrenalin flowing regardless.  It's fun playing Santa, especially since we don't have to climb down any chimneys but can still use the excuse to tip a little heavy on the egg nog and gingerbread cookies.  

But we digress... How about we tell you who won this? 

HotHardware's Tablets Of The Season Sweepstakes Winner No. 3: LLeCompte


LLeCompte, you win the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1!

Congrats guys! Good prizes for both of you.

HH just keeps it going, don't they?

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Actually AKnudson is new, he joined HH this month :) So you still have a shot just the same as any long time member!

Yes Ryan AKnudson is a new member and also after I joined several years ago now I thought the same thing and in fact stated it on several occasions back then as well. You have just as much chance to win a contest on here as anyone else however because you started posting later than most did for this specific contest then your post count is lower. The winning on the contests is based on two things, the first is the amount of posts and comments you make, the second is the accuracy of said comments and help given to others and or contributions to discussion on the site.

Hey Ryan,.....

I won a brand new gaming PC complete with a flat screen monitor, keyboard, and mouse when I was a ~new~ member of HotHardware.

It was truly top of the line stuff at that time too.

This was a few years ago, but I was very new here when it happened for me.  I can remember racking up an insane number of posts at the time. I was trying to be as helpful as I could, and after I won, I stayed around and continued to contribute as much as I possibly could. My posts have dropped off recently, but I have a wonderful sister that's not gonna be around much longer, and a beloved dog that's ready to go soon as well. Call me preoccupied if you want to.

I see that there are a lot of you guys working hard to catch up to my Post count, and doing a damn fine job of it too. Ryan, these are the people who are winning prize here. They deserve it too. You could do the same if you try enough.

Since I've been around, I've seen many prizes come up and I am impressed at how many times the judging is spot-on.

It's fair.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Like some of  the others have already mentioned and something that I believed shortly after joining HH. Like Neil and some of the other o'l timers that won some awesome HH rigs always said just by hanging around and participating would certainly help.But w at I discovered was that I enjoyed genuinely participating &  starting some threads, stopping in daily, even between contests to see what's up with the other folks here pretty much daily.

I also won an awesome rig in the Labor Day Giveaway, yet not all that sure about post count ,helping others, or posting with merit, because during that contest month ..I somehow found myself behind bars and locked up Surprise....I think it was Taylor that won the Asus EE Slider that came to visit, while 4hams provided the distraction that allowed for my escape .Wink

Anyhow whether this has any merit or not , it's some of  this type of inter-action within this community that for me ... makes it click !

ya know what I mean Smile

I never won anything as a new person, thought HH didn't have any contests back then. My first win was in a CSS match that they put on back in the day. I think it was a video card I won, I think it was a X1800XT by Asus.
