4 out of 5 eggsBOOM!

Pros: Many.

Cons: Few. Drivers don't come installed. Doesn't take long to remedy this if you know what you're doing so not a very big con, but why I gave 4 of 5 eggs.

3 out of 5 eggsMixed feelings

Pros: -Runs most games at top settings, never really see a drop in frames.
-Extremely fast boot time
-All the hardware is top notch, and (for me) properly installed.

Cons: -Battery life is extremely short, it only lasts 3 hours with their power saving features on and the brightness very low. This is even without playing any media or games.
-If you want a spare battery it's 159.99 before tax and shipping and you have to buy it through ibuypower.
-When you turn it on the fans blast for a couple of seconds which can make turning it on in a quiet public area kind of awkward.

Other Thoughts: I must say I am very happy with the performance of this laptop, however, I am so very dissappointed with the battery life and the cost of a second battery,

Seriously, if you play a game on the battery it will drain within 2 hours.

1 out of 5 eggsdon't buy

Pros: It's a paper weight.

Cons: The sound card doesn't come installed. The internet doesn't work without a malware program. Movies and cinematics play with lines through the screen and hesitation. My five year old desktop works better. Don't buy this computer.

4 out of 5 eggslove it now.

Pros: 1-fast, at everything it does(file transfer,boot up,frame rate,etc...)
2-price, for what you get(memory,ssd drive, etc...)
3-quality of hardware is very good, but not great

Cons: 1-had to download new drivers for sound to work-sounds very good now.
2-had to uninstall nvidia graphics drivers, disable the 770m video card in device manager, reboot, reinstall intel video drivers from factory disk, reboot, then enable the 770m video card, reboot, then reinstall the nvidia drivers from the factory disk, reboot
-graphics work very good now, and no blue tint to the screen like it was before. must be a conflict of drivers from factory installation.

Other Thoughts: activation code for windows is on the tag stuck to the bottom of the computer, can't miss it.
I really like this computer, you get alot for the money.
if it wasn't for the driver issues, and having to fix it out of box it would be a solid 5 stars

4 out of 5 eggsFollow up on "Audio hardware doesn't work"

Pros: Audio hardware wasn't actually bad.
Great laptop, really nice, really powerful. Even faster than my watercooled desktop PC due to its SSD C: drive.
When casually browsing the web, it barely gets warm even when on a soft surface such as a bed or carpet.
Battery life is sufficient.
The secondary 1 TB hard drive is nice. For a laptop, I don't think I'll ever run out of storage space.

Cons: The keyboard is a little weird. The Home & End keys are accessible by either turning off num lock or using Fn-PgUp/Fn-PgDn. The arrow keys don't have space around them so it is too easy to accidentally press other keys even though the laptop is big enough for a bigger keyboard to alleviate this issue. Some keys squeak slightly. There is no key/switch to disable the touchpad so it is difficult to type because my palm often mouseclicks interrupting my typing.
Wifi temporarily drops out frequently intermittently briefly. It has done this with the 5 different wifi networks I've tried. I think it is more reliable on the 5 GHz networks.
drivers not properly installed on the OS preinstalled on the hard drive. Most of them you have to reinstall to get everything working right.

Other Thoughts: Audio hardware wasn't actually bad.
I had called ibuypower tech support and explained that I reinstalled the audio driver, but I had mistaken the Sound Blaster Cinema software for the audio driver. It isn't. The sound blaster install is in addition to the Realtek driver.
After messing with those drivers, it had seemingly begun to work on its own after having completed submitting an RMA, so then it was no longer necessary to send it in.
With at 17.3" screen, I couldn't fit it in most of the bags/laptop cases I had; had to buy one designed for such a huge laptop. The Case Logic VNB-217 is pretty nice.

4 out of 5 eggsIbuypowerCZ-27

Pros: Great looks, screaming fast. Like a desktop in a laptop. Very happy with the construction. It just needed to work and I only had it for three days before I became tired working with iBuypower's inability to provide technical support. I figured it just as simple to return to Newegg for replacement.

Cons: Well, the first one sent to me the sound card was non-functional. I had to pay $30 to send it back and with free shipping from New Egg this was unfortunate customer service. I wrote NEWEGG regarding this and have yet to hear back from them why I had to pay to ship it back when I was sent a defective unit. So, the item is taking longer to ship it back than I had the thing.

4 out of 5 eggsBSOD

Pros: This is a very powerful laptop, very good value for the power you get.

Cons: 1) Yes, needed to reinstall drivers (Sound for sure, and touchpad added functionality) from iBuyPower website as soon as I got it.
2) Getting Blue Screen of Death and computer always restarting itself. This seems to be after laptop resumes from sleep. Can anyone provide feedback for this? Also happening to "N/A" owner below, so I assume it is an issue where I need to update another driver or something. SUGGESTIONS?

Manufacturer Response:

DLP,

I would suggest calling our technical support line at 888-618-6040 to have this issue addressed. They will be able to help you out over the phone.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY IT!

Pros: 1. There is no sound at beginning, so I install a new sound driver, problem solved.2. ALWAYS blue sceern, I tried everyting I could but it just a little bit better, I don't know why. 3. No activation code for win 7, you have to buy one. 4. Cursor moves suddenly with no reason, which makes me really hard to type. 5. Camera cannot be detected today! 6. It is really difficult to return this big boy to Newegg!

Cons: DO NOT BY IT!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: The specs are great and as some of the others mentioned, it does come slightly upgraded than to what some of the descriptions detailed. Starts windows 7 amazingly quickly and so far it is great. The keys lighting and the lighting on the back make it look much better than the pictures showed.

Cons: If anyone took the time when buying this product like any smart buyer would, then they should have known about the sound driver and how sometimes it needs to be reinstalled (yes I am talking about David H. down there). It is something that would take just a few minutes and it has been posted on their forum and answered already with a link to the download. My only negative is that this happens so much with their product that they don't seem to fix it, therefore a -1 Egg.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Laptop is highly underrated in the spec sheet, it doesn't state that it has a Killer Network Card, 720p webcam, airplane mode settings, programmable P1 and P2 buttons to open any application you want, and a shortcut button on the keyboard to instantly increase your CPU fan speed. The laptop plays CS:GO fine and Infestation Survivor Stories great. I am currently installing BF4, so I do not know on the status of that game yet.

Cons: When turning on the laptop, Sound Blaster Cinema said that it did not detect the sound card I had NOR did the sound card "work". I found out that after re-installing the audio drivers on iBUYPOWER's website, after a system restart the audio works fine.

Other Thoughts: Laptop is really great, I just think that the backspace key and right shift are a tad bit too short and causes you to miss-type. I mainly use my laptop connected to my BenQ monitor with a external gaming keyboard and mouse.

iBUYPOWER needs to hire a better marketing team, because this laptop has great potential just a lack of advertisement. I am glad I saw this on sale during cyber Monday if not I would have probably bought a MSI laptop for the same price but with less quality specifications.
