Lenovo IdeaPad Z710 (59387520) Notebook Intel Core i7 4700MQ (2.40GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: No crazy hardware issues so far. Laptop is as was described with nothing unexpected or not meeting expectations. Runs cool and quiet, screen is good, keyboard is good. Had some issues with the touchpad but suspect usual Windows/driver issues, worked fine after a few updates. Overall it's a decent laptop at a decent price.

Cons: Only major con so far is the construction. There's a screw under the bottom panel of the laptop that was either not turned in all the way or was mis-threaded. Either way the bottom panel was just jammed on there with a huge bump over the screw. Will take it apart shortly to see if I can simply just screw the protruding screw back in. Terrible QC that I hope doesn't signal additional problems.

Other Thoughts: Took me a while to find the SD card reader.

Also, FREAKING WINDOWS 8.1! Worst windows since ME. Complete garbage unless you're on a tablet, phone, or something with a touchpad. I know what they're doing, trying to force developers to make apps for windows 8 but, boy does this operating system operate clunky. I'm going to stick with it for now but this is Vista all over again.

Buy a OEM copy of 7 if you have the money.

Pros: Cheap and simple.

Cons: Bought two, one has a poor connection. Corrupts images from my phone about 20% if the time. Not worth the price if you can find one of better quality.

Samsung Syncmaster 2233RZ Black 22
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Monitor works great for 3D and 2D viewing. There is a small amount of interlacing or something when using the 3D mode of Nvidia 3D vision but otherwise the picture is always perfect.

Cons: Worked great for a year then the backlight would shut off after a few minutes of use. Finally got to the point where a few seconds of use would cause it to shut off. Returned to Samsung for a repair under warranty, they paid shipping and fixed it in a reasonable time. One week after getting it back (it worked great) I got a purple line of pixels down the monitor. Great, now I have to send it back again. Not cool Samsung.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend you buy it as Samsung's warranty service is good. Otherwise, find another 3D monitor.
