Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs meh... 02/27/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Good OS overall, does its job

Cons: No start menu
Slower than windows 7 after boot
Constant CPU utilization
No Start Menu

Other Thoughts: The system boot faster than win7, BUT, even if the desktop appears, for the cpu utilization do drop to near zero takes much longer than windows 7. In win 7 it takes 25 seconds and here almost 40 seconds.
Even after the CPU utilization drops to near zero, almost constantly it will keep using between 10 to 40% of CPU doing something, even when I an not running anything.
Lack of the start menu in the desktop mode is obviously a problem, thanks to 3rd part utilities, you get it back, but there should be an option to do so by default.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E500B/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast

Cons: Not fast enough to justify the cost

Other Thoughts: I have used 840 evo and MX100 in the past and I could not feel any difference in speed in day to use (including gaming). At some points it even seemed slower. Not worth the extra $$. But it is a fast SSD, no doubt about that.

ThinkPad T410 14.1” Notebook Intel Core i5 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, DVDROM, Win 7 Pro 64
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap
Fast when works
Fresh clean windows 7 64 install, no bloatware
Keyboard light

Cons: Freezes every now and then and stops responding, requires reboot.
Case not put back together properly, it crackles
Sub-par battery life

Other Thoughts: There are obvious signs of repair, while putting it back together, workmen did not do a good job, there are gaps and such.
Biggest issue is that the system will all of a sudden almost freeze up, nothing would respond properly, even task manager would be inaccessible, forcing you to do a hardboot, might be a video diver issue, have to troubleshoot... but you should not have to...
