2 out of 5 eggsblack screen of death

Pros: lasted about 8 months

Cons: lasted about 8 months

Other Thoughts: The laptop worked great for the wife from 12/2013 until 8/2014
Then one day it acted as if it hadn't booted up, just a black screen no beeps etc.,but I hear drive noises. After a few reboots it came on and worked for almost another week. Then I started the troubleshooting. loaded new bios..worked again for maybe 4 days. then memory check. no. alternate monitor. no. so here it sits 300 and some dollars just "poof" fixing it will be ??? 2 or 3 hundred I'd bet, so that aint happening. Internet is so full of this problem. Shop around guys

1 out of 5 eggsBeing stolen from

Pros: nothing

Cons: I bought this thing about two months ago. It died two weeks after I rushed it to my home. The first two days it was already freezing with regularity. After that it just crashed completely. When I tried to get into contact with newegg they were kind enough to set up an RMA, which I should've really seen the hammer dropping from that point.

When I sent it back I wasn't aware that you needed to include everything, even things they didn't include. Repeatedly I was asked to return the retail box if I wanted my refund. But it came in a non-descript cardboard box. I kept telling them that. After spending a few hours looking for a customer service number that didn't actually work, getting stonewalled by the chat service, and having the email service repeat the same thing which I repeated told them:

I don't have a retail box, you jerks.

Which would have at least been okay, but they never sent the actual physical broken computer back either. So now I'm 400$ out of pocket with literally nothing to show for it except for an extreme amount of frustration and the feeling that I was stolen from.

Do not buy this computer, there is no way to replace it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop amazing price

Pros: Fast, amazing price, does everything I need with no issue, and you can buy memory to upgrade it to 8GB memory since it has 2 open slots

Cons: Volume out of the box isn't loud enough

Other Thoughts: To increase volume, go to control panel>sound , right click your speaker (named Realtek High Definition audio) and click "Properties" then click the Enhancements tab and UNcheck "Disable Sound effects" and "Immediate Mode". Finally find the option below called "Loudness Equalization" to get a 50% boost in sound

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb!

Pros: I ordered on Tuesday and received it on Thursday. Packaging was nice and the actual laptop box was sealed (never opened). After opening the box the laptop was packaged securely and everything Newegg stated was included. I immediately opened the hard drive and memory panel on the bottom and added an additional 4 gig stick to take the unit to 8 gigs. The first boot up was flawless. Configuration was smooth and connecting to the home network and home-group was easy. After getting to the desktop I immediately removed McAfee and replaced it with a better antivirus program. Windows update discovered close to 200 updates and installation was simple. After all updates were installed everyone installed without a single failure. 30 minutes of bloatware removal revealed 407 gigs free out of 447 gigs. At this point I began to put it thru its paces. Streaming movies from the home network was fast and smooth. I use the VLC media player and my movies are in several different formats. All files played fine (mp4, divx, mjpeg, even a few qpeg's). I tested the web cam, worked fine. The DVD multi-drive worked fine although a little slow and a little loud. I burned a DVD and a music CD. The card reader functioned properly reading a SD card and a microSD card. The wireless card worked as expected transferring files fast and efficient with no network drops or disconnections. The 15.6" widescreen has a wonderful look to it. It looses its luster as you angle your view from side to side but looking at it straight on is stunning for a sub $400 dollar unit. The other reviews concerning the feel and functionality of the keyboard are true. The keyboard definitely feels cheap and the keys don't have that snap to them to let you know you've pushed them. If this was your only PC and you needed to do a lot of data entry I would consider a USB keyboard. The hard drive is a 5400 rpm model and performs as expected. Not fast but not slow either. After extended use the drive does get hot. After researching this, the drive temps are normal and to be expected. The power block is nice and small and doesn't seem to get too warm. I do not like where it plugs into the unit nor do I like it being a 45 degree plug. But it does plug in snugly and stays secure.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: For a sub $400 dollar machine there are no complaints. I shopped around for several days and I kept coming back to this unit. This is a Christmas gift for my teenage step daughter and it will be able to do everything she wants to do (web browsing, word processing, light gaming, burning movies and music CD's). I plan on buying another one after the new year if this model is still available. I would definitely recommend this unit to all my friends and family.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product for price

Pros: This notebook delivers a nice balance of screen size and processor power for the price. After a couple days of heavy use, I'm very impressed. Add newegg's fast delivery and customer service and you have yourself a great buy. Thanks to all the other reviewers of this product.

Cons: USB ports are a little snug. Orientation of keyboard and trackpad may need some getting used to.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what we needed

Pros: The screen resolution is dynamite, it boots up rather quickly and it's Windows 7 not 8!! I hate Windows 8!!

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: While Windows 7 machines are getting a bit harder to find, for me it's worth it. Until the next version of Windows is out that fixes some of the issues with W8 this machine will do quite nicely. We got this to replace an older Acer laptop with Vista on it that just up and died. We had it fixed once but not a 2nd time.
