Pros: Looks very nice, I like the color red. Once I made some changes ( I will spell these out below) I was playing BF3 on Auto settings which was Ultra Terrain most of the rest at medium @1600x900 res. at no less than 41 FPS, most of the time in the high 50-60 range. This was the reason I bought this laptop so I am stoked! Also played CRYSIS 3 at whatever the auto video configuration is at 25-50 FPS. which I consider very playable.
Cons: Windows 8..... I installed an app I found to make it look more like win 7 with a "start" icon in the lower left corner. That allowed me to survive the first night with it.
Other Thoughts: Out of the box my 2 games I tried crashed in game play. These actions fixed those problems.
Set your graphics to always use the GTX 670M graphics card (must be plugged in or it goes to Intel 4000HD) in the Nvidia control panel.
My unit came with BIOS 610. I upgraded to BIOS 630 from Toshiba's site.
There is a 2/9/2013 Nvidia driver you should upgrade to from Nvidia's site.
Use IE10 for games, firefox had problems.
Pros: The person I bought it for was very happy! She likes red! (ordered brushed aluminum i5, got red A6). Working very well. No issues.
Cons: I ordered i5, got A6. Kind of a conundrum, was supposed to be NV77, box said it was, got NV75S20U, amd chip A6-3400, not as good as i5 but 6GB, 1TB, and better graphics vs. 4GB and 500GB and intel HD3000. The person packing the box of refurbished laptops was a dunce. So I can't blame newegg. Since who I bought it for was happy, I did not bother talking to newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Barska 50MM Red Dot Short Tube Scope
Pros: Sorry, none.
Cons: Arrived quickly with no visible packing damage. Upon opening the box and inspecting the scope, I became concerned that the orangish lens bellow the front cover glass looked very cocked (like 5 or 6 mm on one side). Unit turned on and projected but the "dot" was a horizontal line that was 4 or 5 "dot" widths wide. I did not mount the unit. I will return it and try one last time.READ FULL REVIEW
