Pros: Bad reviews on the after market side lead me to order this OEM from NewEgg ( slightly less $$$ then direct from Lenovo ). Perfect replacement for the dead factory original and the 9cell gives the extended life I'd hoped for.
Cons: High Price but Buy With Confidence
Other Thoughts: This is for a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 that's been collecting dust for a few years now. Factory battery was dead and would not charge. So far it holds it's charge well and charges up in less than the time expected.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plug-N-Play with Windows 7 Pro x64 on GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA motherboard ( N82E16813128594 ). Raised my Windows Experiance Index from 4.3 to 7.3
Solid card with flawless vider rendering at full-screen HD. NVIDIA Control Center exposes many features and aspects for manipulation & tuning. BTW: Default settings work fine for now.
Cons: None: see "Other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: I purchased this board in order to improve video performance on my latest build ( GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA motherboard, i5-4570S 2.9G CPU, 8GB G.SKILL DDR3 1600 memory, Kingston V300 Seried SSD boot drive ). Video was the lowest score in Windows Experiance Index with a 4.3 Video now scores 7.3
On first startup with this card Windows loaded Standard VGA single screen and took longer than expected to load drivers for the card. After reboot dual screens were auto detected and driven at proper resolutions. Oddley enough this card takes longer to load the dual screens than the 1/2GB NVIDIA Card it replaces.
This card takes a lot of room in the case as the trailing edge of the fan housing extends past the end of the card by almost an inch. and the height of the fan housing comes close to blocking the next slot on my MB. No problem as the GIGABYTE mb has plenty of slots and I'm running just a couple of add-on cards.
Pros: Excelent Customer Service from GIGABYTE My original MB sent unstable after 31 days with intermit boot failures, hangs etc. and it seemed to be a deteriorating situation: I lost confidence in the board. I called GIGABYTE Cust. Support and they willingly sent me a replacement once I explained the symptoms and my concerns. I pre-paid for the replacement in order to have it shipped prior to returning the suspect MB and was promptly refunded once they received the original MB. The replacement has been a solid performed ( see my original review 9/11/2013 ) for some 6 months now: GREAT Customer Service and a GREAT Product.
Cons: MB went "unstable" after 31days NewEgg would not take as return / replace so I turned to GIGABYTE
Other Thoughts: I'll be reccomending GIGABYTE to anyone who asks.READ FULL REVIEW
