Lenovo Y50 4K (59425943) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 16GB Memory 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB 15.6
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solid Build with an Apple Computer kind of feel. Metal bottom and Top with a sculpted finish was a real shock when I took it out of the box.
Extremely Fast in every category.
Dual Video Cards...(Intel for HD4600 For low power and nVidia for high power)

Cons: MUSTARD YELLOWS everyone has said it and it is true!!! This screen has a tough time reproducing colors. It does not look bad but it could be better.

Other Thoughts: The only issue I have with this laptop is the color reproduction of the screen.

WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low Power
Big Storage.

Cons: Runs HOT!
Premature Failure.

Other Thoughts: I purchased a one of these a year ago. I purchased this one to add to my NAS system for RAID 1 and would you believe that when moving from chassis to the new one, my older drive failed and is no longer in warranty!!!

WD drives are extremely reliable they are the only thing we use at work but my luck in my personal system I have not been able to experience this. Seagate has had a much more reliable track record for me.

My 2TB Green WDC Drive died 3 months after purchase and the 1TB Green died 1 week after install. Fortunately my other drives were covered under warranty and they do have good warranty service.

I just have really bad luck with my drives from WDC. At work we have nearly 200 various drives Blue, Black, and Red and we have only had one go bad in the past 2 years...

ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 990FX at a good price

Cons: Unreliable. USB locks up system or causes it to reboot.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these boards in my possession at this time. All of them developed USB issues. If you plug in a USB flash drive, the system would reboot. We spent months trying to figure out the issue.... New Ram, new CPU, etc. Countless driver reinstalls... Nothing worked. We finally swapped out these boards with a competitor's 990fx board and have not had a lick of trouble with them since. Same Ram, CPU and video cards. I have purchased a few ASROCK boards in the past and have had good luck with them but the EXTREME 3 board has something fundamentally wrong with it.
