Reburbished: Dell Latitude E6430 - 3rd Gen i5 2.6 GHz - 8gb - 160GB SSD - 14
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast thanks to the high frequency 3rd gen core I5 cpu, 8 GB of memory and SSD. Boots very fast and nothing I throw at it slows it down.

Back-lit keyboard.

Very solid feeling without being too heavy but then you Mac Boys would probably find it too heavy.

Love the clean and strong industrial look.

Cons: No Web camera or Bluetooth on mine but not a big deal. I was mostly looking for durable mostly metal construction and fast performance.

Other Thoughts: I had to finish the refurbishing as Service Pack 1 was not yet installed and then after it was installed there were hours worth of additional updates to install. There were also still 2 unknown hardware devices but I had no real issues finding the appropriate drivers on the Dell support site. Working in the IT field these are not bothersome to me, but these issues may not be easy for the casual user to address.

For the same price I could have bought a new laptop but it would have been MUCH slower and frail compared to this beast.

The laptop itself is in almost mint condition and works beautifully! I consider this a great purchase and solid value.

Intel EXPI9301CTBLK Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45

5 out of 5 eggs Works Perfectly as expected 09/08/2014

This review is from: Intel EXPI9301CTBLK Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45

Pros: Does what a NIC is supposed to do...provide fast and reliable wired data transmission.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had to install this as the built-in NIC was fried by a lightning strike and this filled the need.

Thought about trying a cheaper brand but decided I needed to ensure that connectivity was rock solid so I went with the best - Intel.

Cyber Acoustics CA3550RB 68 watts 2.1 Black Speakers
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad for PC Speakers 09/08/2014

This review is from: Cyber Acoustics CA3550RB 68 watts 2.1 Black Speakers

Pros: Not Expensive
Adjustable bass level
Overall Good sound quality
Will produce some serious volume given the price

Cons: Like too many speakers these days the bass can get very boomy and out of balance with the rest of the music frequencies, necessitating lowering either the bass level or Volume level. Bass quality is not as clean and tight as my 12 year old set of Labtec 2.1's that gave out due to a bad cable.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for audiophile quality sound you need to look elsewhere and expect to pay at least 3 times as much. But if you're looking for better than average overall sound quality at a good price then these should fill your need.
