Pros: Let me just say that this laptop is amazing for gaming. It boasts a 4th gen i7 cpu, a geforce gtx 860 maxwell gpu, and 8gb of ddr3 ram. If that doesn't scream performance, I dont know what does. I can run skyrim in ultra settings for at least 60 fps (I capped the fps). I never lag in any of my games, unless it's connection related.
Cons: The one thing that I would have liked the y50 to be improved on is the hard drive. The 5400 rpm harddrive is RIDICULOUSLY slow. They could've made it 7200 rpm for just a little bit more, but if you can, swap the harddrive for an ssd. Also, the ram comes it 2x4gb ram sticks which kind of sucks because there's only two ram slots. The keyboard is also a bit hard to use. For some reason, it takes a bit of force to press the keys, or it could just be me.
Other Thoughts: There's a 25gb ssd that you can put all your frequently used programs in. I guess it's to compensate for the 5400 rpm hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Steelseries Qck Gaming Mouse Pad (Black)
Pros: It is a very good mouse pad that has a good grip on any surface, and has good mouse tracking. It's a huge upgrade from those balloon shaped mouse pads with the wrist cushions at the end that I used to use, and it's wonderful for fps games, where you need a large mousepad because you need to play with low mouse sensitivity.
Cons: I wish it came with a cleaning cloth, because I've already gotten some crumbs on it (my fault for eating near it, however)
Other Thoughts: It's a mouse pad. It works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)
Pros: The keyboard was a joy to use. It's basically a no frills standard keyboard with some media keys on the top, that has the added bonus of having back-lit keys. It's also rubberized, which makes typing with it and gaming easier. The keyboard was responsive and slid, and as of the moment I have no problems with it. The mouse, when it was still functional, was also a solid product. It had a rubberized grip, which made it easy to hold. The tracking was good, and the dpi settings were also nice (although I mainly used the 800 dpi setting.)
Cons: The mouse stopped working one week later, one night , when I heard the windows sound alert of a peripheral being unplugged on my laptop. Nothing was unplugged, but my mouse stopped working. The mouse was still apparently lit up, but it was no longer responsive to movement or clicking. Also, it kind of sucked that I couldn't turn off the mouse light even when it did work.
Other Thoughts: Can't RMA it because I threw out the original packaging. It was a thirty dollar keyboard and mouse set, what was I to expect. It is what it is. At least the keyboard's still going strong.READ FULL REVIEW
