This review is from: TomTom GO 60S 6 Inch Automotive GPS
Pros: The product was delivered rather quickly, and arrived in good shape. It is exactly what I ordered. And it seems to be working as expected. I was amazed at how quickly it found my location, even indoors!
Cons: I was surprised at the packaging. It was in a box with no top, and the GPS screen was exposed on the top, with a plastic film over it. But a solid blow on it could have very easily damaged the item. This box was enclosed in a bubble-wrap bag. The item would have been much better protected in a larger shipping box with packing material around the manufacturer's box.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: USB PS2 ADAPTER CABLE for KEYBOARD and MOUSE PS/2
Pros: Mouse port works
Cons: Keyboard port doesn't work
Other Thoughts: This item looks just like others which actually work. But this one doesn't. If you need it for a PS/2 keyboard, don't waste your money. I bought 4 of them which I cannot use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: A nice business-class laptop, fast and responsive, and quiet. Easy access to the memory and disk drive and other upgradeable parts. Sturdy, well-made magnesium case.
Cons: With all these features, a fingerprint scanner should have been included.
Other Thoughts: OK, here are the details: The packing list indicates that this computer is known as an E6430 version 469-4268. Search the internet and you will find out lots about this model.
1) The OS is indeed W7pro 64-bit.
2) The keyboard IS backlit.
3) The included 4 Gb stick of memory is Samsung M471B5273EB0--YK0, rated at 1.35V. I replaced it with Crucial CT2KIT51264BF160B. Works like a charm.
4) I still don't know if the connections are SATA III. Probably are.
5) I can't find a caddy offered by Dell. Bought one from China, which came with a cable. Now I have 3 hard disks connected, and could even connect more through the USB 3.0 ports. WOW!
6) Computer came with 3 disks: one W7pro system recovery DVD, one DVD with drivers and utilities, and one CD with webcam software. All on the last two were of course preinstalled.
One thing I missed from my old laptop was a right-angled power plug to take strain off the power cord. Adapters are available--look for "LC90. adapter". This model also comes with a small "joy-stick" pointing device nestled among the G,H,and B keyboard keys. I miss my old fingerprint scanner. One is available for this model, but not included in this version. Sometimes Nvidia graphics don't play well with Linux, but I have verified that Kubuntu 13.04 runs fine from the live CD. I think that the Linux community has found a way to provide a substitute for the Optimus graphics-switching software which is needed to take advantage of the Nvidia hardware present in this laptop.
All in all, this is a fine computer. I lost some capabilities from my previous laptop, but gained some with this one, and I would recommend this computer to anyone who could be happy with its features.
