Pros: It fits in the laptop.
Cons: Replaced an S3-391 bad drive. Eventually, the computer would only boot sometimes. The drive showed up on my SATA dock after a couple drives and I ran a scan and it checked out.
I proceeded to replace other parts, only to find out the drive was causing the problem. Popped in another drive temporarily and it booted up and works fine. Doing an exchange but wasted a lot of time on this =/
Other Thoughts: Wish the laptop didn't only fit thin drives lolREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acer Aspire S3-391-6899 13.3" Ultrabook
Pros: Very light weight. Great for school if you have to carry a bunch of things with you all the time.
Cons: Everything else.
- Sent it in shortly before warranty was up because wireless was working off and on. They repaired that.
- Shortly after the warranty was over, we had to replace the hard drive.
- You're paying a definite premium for weight. The laptop isn't that fast.
Other Thoughts: I got this for my sister who has some back problems and needed something very light. Otherwise, I'd put that money towards something a lot more powerful. Just too much trouble, even though I am in computer repair, to have to fix the thing each time something went wrong.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SteelSeries Merc Stealth Black USB Wired Ergonomic Gaming Keyboard
Pros: Potentially can be very useful for mmo/fps type gaming with nearby skill keys, etc. Cool that it lights up and has connectors for headphone/mic.
Cons: - Difficult to get used to: They put the end/home, etc keys with the numpad, as well as the arrow keys.
Very annoying for someone who often takes advantage of scrolling documents with page down/page up, end, home, etc. Also takes a lot of getting used to on the numpad. I'm a lot slower on it than a regular size numpad.
I'm used to completing web addresses in Chrome by hitting the arrow keys and typing the next letter. Having the arrow keys as part of the numpad throws me off big time.
- Keyboard is very large. I have it sitting down with a mouse on a large gaming mouse pad and if I wanna use the "gamepad", I have to scoot it in taking up precious mouse real estate, and then if i wanna type I have to scoot it back to the left.
- Gamepad is neat but I still feel a bit more effective with the keyboard. I've forced myself to use it for a while but still not used to it. Has potential, especially for games with number keys as skills (as they are on top of each other instead of one long row).
I am now trying to sell mine. Just don't have the patience to get used to it =/
Other Thoughts: If you don't care about numpads, arrow keys, home/end/etc keys, then you might be ok.READ FULL REVIEW
