Pros: The display is top notch.
The performance of the hardware is good.
It feels like a solid product.
It runs cooler than expected.
Cons: The red keyboard letters are difficult to see if you have glasses and are looking at a bright screen, due to the glare from the screen.
Windows 8.1 (why only two eggs)
Other Thoughts: We tried to get used to Windows 8.1 and just find it too cumbersome and difficult to use. Seems like you have to click twice as many times to get something done, as opposed to Windows 7.
It is just frustrating to use. No matter how nice the hardware is, the operating system makes it difficult, frustrating, and simply kills the user experience.
I contacted ASUS, asking them about Windows 7 support and they kindly told me to get use to using Windows 8.1 that Windows 7 support is not available.
We will be looking to get rid of this laptop so we can get a Windows 7 based one before they are all gone. I wish it would have worked out. Great hardware and specs.
I made a mistake and learned from it.
This review is from: Seagate Expansion 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STBX500100 Black
Pros: Nice form factor. Like the removeable USB plug to expose the SATA connector. Decent performance.
Cons: Bought one a while back and it came in as a 250GB model, even though it was/is clearly marked as a 500GB model. Noticed it too late to return it.
Bought another one, from a different store, and same problem. 232GB of free space. Clearly marked as a 500GB model.
Other Thoughts: Did Seagate have a batch come out marked incorrectly?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 500GB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive STBU500100 Black
Pros: Really nice package and design. Works well.
Cons: We bought the 500GB. It is labeled as a 500GB, but it really is a 250GB. We did not notice it until it was too late to return it, and have since discovered others having the same problem.
Be sure to check the free space as soon as you get it to make sure you got 500GB,
Other Thoughts: Even though it is a 250GB it still fills the requirements we had. Just wanted to alert others.READ FULL REVIEW
