5 out of 5 eggs Great Computer, but dag gummit Newegg, really? 08/07/2014

This review is from: HP 17-E189NR Notebook AMD A-Series A10-5750M (2.50GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8650G 17.3" Windows 8.1

Pros: I will get to the pros in a minute. I just got this in the mail today. Anyway, I bought this for 469.99 and it was on sale. THE DAY AFTER I FUDGING BOUGHT IT THE PRICE GOES TO 419!!!!! What the heck!!!!!

I am a college student and a PC gamer. I was looking for a deal. If I had known that this was going to drop I would have waited for it to drop. I'm a college student and I'm struggling to save every penny. I've been with newegg for 7 years and they've never done something like this. I am outraged!

1. I am a PC gamer that was looking for something that could play league, smite, and a few other not so demanding games at 60 fps on medium settings and this is no let down!

I'm running smite on high with 60fps no problems and it doesn't even get hot.

I'll be testing Metro Last Light for giggles later, ill post about that later though.

-Fast even with the slow HDD, I'm replacing it with a Solid State Drive. Just bought a cloning device so I can start where I left off.

-Webcam is fine, nothing fancy.


Cons: -All I have to say bad about this is the bloatware....
Mcaffaggot, 50+ games from Wildtangent come pre-installed, some other popups.

I removed them first thing and im using Security Essentials haha.

Other Thoughts: Like I raged above, If I wanted to spend 469 on a laptop like I did I would have bought something else knowing that the price was to drop.

I wish it had another HDD Bay so I could still have the 1TB drive that it comes with :'( Was going to RAID SSD's, but oh well.

Great gaming/school computer.

You can trust my judgement because I'm coming from a desktop that has 3 SSD's in Raid 0 for boot and 4TB of storage, an i5 4670k at 4.0GHZ, GTX 760. I'm someone who NEEDS 60 fps when I game.

Newegg really let me down on this purchase because of the price drop, I'm truly upset about it. If anyone wants to know anything else about this laptop send me a message at halofannatic at g mail

and yes halofannatic is my email, halofanatic was taken hahahaha.

HP Pavilion 6450B Notebook Intel Core i5 2.40GHz 4GB Memory 128GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 14.0

Pros: Fast even though it didn't come with the SSD it said it would. Read below I have nothing else to comment well on this.

Cons: DID NOT come with a 128GB SSD. instead came with a 250GB HDD. It is still fast, but it is NOT a SSD. I bought this for a client to now i need to return it.

Canon EOS M (6609B074) Black 18 MP 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: First off I must say that i'm just a normal consumer and I picked this up here for 300 bucks!
This is the first camera I've ever bought.
Now to the pros:
-Excellent pictures of course! I'll try and post links to some pics taken with this.
-Many features!
-Has a manual focus which is simply amazing!
-Great battery life (im not sure what is standard) but ive taken over 500 photos already today and I just got this out of the box 5 hours ago and i still have full bars! I even too 7 videos! Read below about the vids though

Cons: Now onto the cons - KEEP IN MIND I'm just a stupid consumer, I'm a computer guy and I'm interested in photography so I got this to start me out. These are the things that I noticed. I just got this camera today and have shot about 500 pics already.

-First off i didnt take any eggs off. i was about to because of this, but then i thought HEY this is a camera meant for still pictures, videos are just a bonus! But this is what my issue is. Maybe its because of my SD card, but when i try to take videos they only record for 17 seconds flat.

-when doing AF+MF(auto focus and manual focus) and this is both at the same time, its a feature! :D you need to lightly press the button that you press to take pictures and hold it at the point when the box turns green and then you can rotate the precision focus cylinder on your lens to focus. It's very difficult while holding the camera. :(

- decent speed on AF, again im new to cameras so i dont know what slow is, but its certainly not SSD fast ;)

-it doesn't like to autofocus on things that are REALLY close, you need to manually focus on them for that.

Other Thoughts: Demonstration of picture quality! 1:

ENJOY! I really am glad i finally bought a camera and im glad it was this one!
