This review is from: hec HP585DB 585W ATX12V Power Supply - Power Cord Included
Pros: Great paperweight.
Cons: DOA. Should have known better than to go cheap on a PSU. Just buy a quality PSU and be done with it.
Other Thoughts: Don't be cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast...when it's not being RMA'd. I previously gave this laptop a 5 star rating, which I am reducing to 1 star to even out. Read my horror story to find out why.
Cons: This laptop worked great for a few weeks. Other than the aforementioned trackpad issues, I really had no qualms. That is, until my screen mysteriously vanished and went completely white. I called MSI and they immediately requested that I RMA it. Okay, that sucks, but whatever. I need this for work and I need it working.
They recommend you insure your package, and seeing this is an expensive laptop, I put insurance on it for that amount. Great, I'm out $64 to ship a 5 week old laptop back to the manufacturer.
They give me an estimated time frame of 15-25 business days, which I am NOT happy about. Again, I use this for work. However, to their credit, they repaired and dropped it back in the mail within 4 business days of receiving it, which I was happy about.
Fast forward to a week after receiving my laptop back from MSI, I get a SSD failure. GREAT. I have to RMA it AGAIN to MSI.
To be honest, I got so fed up with this that I put it on a shelf and didn't look at it for 2 months. Who has the time for this bologne? Certainly not me.
I finally get a moment to send an online request for assistance. After 2 weeks of no response, I finally just called, and they requested that I RMA it again. Greeeeat. This time I didn't ship my charger to them (they request that you send EVERYTHING back with it), which saved me $10 on the shipping cost, but still ran me $54. So $118 in shipping later, I've been able to use this laptop for about 6 weeks total since I purchased on release day.
What. A. Joke.
Other Thoughts: It's unfortunate, because I really enjoy using this laptop when it works. But I don't have the time to constantly RMA this thing. It's been dead longer than its been working, and thats pathetic.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: See my post below. This is an excellent, excellent product for the money.
Cons: -My girlfriends hair gets caught on the bottom grip thingies. It's annoying, so I got rid of my girlfriend.
-I fixed the disappearing mouse issue by going into windows mouse properties, and somehow, it found it again. Hopefully an updated driver comes out that will resolve this issue for good.
Other Thoughts: I had to update my previous review of 4 eggs and give it 5 eggs. The only reason why I subtracted an egg was for the disappearing mouse when using the track pad, which I have resolved myself temporarily. I'm positive windows or MSI will release a new driver soon, so it wasn't a fair deduction. I wish I could edit my previous review.READ FULL REVIEW
