Pros: For a C grade refurb item I was a little apprehensive about this purchase. But I needed a laptop just for use around home, not travel or office, and I needed a unit with ample processing power for my needs, so a refurb fit my needs.
The only ‘blemish’ I can find on the unit I received is that the finish on three of the corners is rough and worn, but just at the very tips of the corners. The rest of the laptop is clean and looks like new. The operation is flawless, runs like new. The OS is windows 7 and installs without ANY bloatware and has a re-install partition if ever needed.
Cons: No cons found, does not look like new but at the c grade cost, it looks very acceptable.
Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this for anyone who wants a cheap, powerful laptop to use around the house. If you're giving a laptop to your graduate son/daughter then you should shell out the extra bucks for a new unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Release mechanism is a good idea, I would like an SSD Sata to USB 3 case that didn't need screws to open, for quick swapping of SSDs.
Cons: But the implementation doesn't work. With SSD in case the levered back would not close and SSD could not be detected. When I forced the case to close it got stuck and wouldn't open.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy this case, the levering mechanism doesn't work.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, cheap and reliable, I bought one of these to use as the boot drive for my home system, and it worked great. Started to wonder if two of these in a raid 0 config would be better, so I bought a second one of these and set both up in Raid 0. Once my system was reinstalled everything launches and runs faster.
Going from HDD to one SDD was a bigger improvement, but with two 840 Pros in Raid 0 pushes the speed of my system up a noticeable amount.
Cons: not any, except wish I had waited and bought at this price, the ones I bought were purchased locally for about $40 moreREAD FULL REVIEW
