This review is from: DELL Alienware AW17R3-7092SLV Gaming Laptop 6th Generation Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 4 GB GDDR5 17.3" 1920 x 1080 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
Pros: Newegg got me the laptop after 2 days using the free shipping :)
Cons: The boot time is incredibly sloe for an NVMe SSD, I am averaging 3 minutes per boot. Some people have recommended upgrading the BIOS which I did to the latest A05 build but that did not resolve the issue. Additionally I tried disabling the free fall sensor but that didn't resolve the issue either.
The bigger problem I have is that the system is intermittently recognizing the 1TB hdd in the Bios but never in Windows. THis appears to be a bad hard drive from the factory.
Other Thoughts: I will follow up with more information as I troubleshoot this further, but so far I have to say it is a big disappointment.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Replaced the original 500GB drive that cam in my Lenovo W530 with this drive. Super fast (for a spindle drive) and lots of storage.
Other Thoughts: The original drive in my W530 was a 7mm drive, co the rubber rails would not work with this drive. seems ok without the rails but ordered the Lenovo FRU 41V9756 (9.5mm rubber rails) to be safe.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed this in my Lenovo W530 in only a few minutes and this drive works flawlessly. Playback is very smooth with quick load times using PowerDVD 13 Ultra.
Other Thoughts: Came as a bare drive wrapped in bubble wrap, but works perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
