2 out of 5 eggs Good Case Bad Powersupply 06/16/2014

This review is from: APEVIA Black SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-BK/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Great Media case for under the entertainment center

Cons: Power Supply was dead on arrival

Other Thoughts: why cant they sell just the case if they obviously cant pull off a power supply

Pros: Simple, use those 1x slots!

Cons: Port multiplier for my external storage needs!

Other Thoughts: Not bad for a 1x controller. Use it for backup drives

MSI GT Series GT70 0ND-492US Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 3630QM (2.40 GHz) 16 GB Memory 750 GB HDD 128 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 4 GB 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: More ram than ill need for now

Graphics are great, thankyou NVIDIA

Can add an aditional ssd, there is room for it

Enough drive clearance to replace the 750GB WD Black drive with a 1TB VelociRaptor that is thicker than normal 2.5" drives.

can right click on any exe and choose the default videocard the app should run with. Saves Battery.

Cons: UEFI Linux Support - I dont know if i want to open that barell of monkeys.

Virtualization support is limited, does not support x64 guest out of the box

Opening the underside of the laptop voids your msi warranty. Which is lame if you want to add an additional SSD.

Other Thoughts: Some people look at the cons and think i would have rated this lower. I have a friend that modifies bios's for fun and i am experimenting with implementing features that aren't included with the stock bios. Overall i think these are minor obstacles with this laptop.
