Pros: -Seems to charge just as quickly as the official Nexus-branded charger off of which this one is modeled
-Seems just as "grippy" as the official model too.
-The LEDs are visible, but not distractingly bright
-While my phone (Nexus 5) does get slightly warmer, I would be surprised if anyone considers it hot at all.
As far as comparisons with the official Nexus Orb, the materials look the same. If anything, I think this one is *slightly* lighter. Both orbs are identical in terms of the sticky materials. My N5 has never slipped a millimeter on either orb.
Cons: -Deducting a star because of the the power adapter block. It is one of those stupid, massive bricks that takes up like two and a half outlet spots on a power strip. It drives me crazy. I brought my Nexus 5 adapter into the office so I can have those other one and a half outlets back. That's probably my only big gripe with this charger.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small form factor, fitting in a reasonably beefy CPU, GPU, RAM.
Cons: Notebook internals, not desktop hardware (but you already knew that from reading the spec sheet). Blu-Ray drive is kind of noisy when running at full speed.
Also, the support/driver CD install will load up a little bit of crapware if you allow it to automatically install everything (Zynga Mobile Games portal, upgrade-prompting Norton Antivirus, etc. Nothing too egregious, but annoying nonetheless).
If you select what you want to install yourself (which I did on another clean OS install), you can avoid the crapware completely.
Other Thoughts: 1 week or so into owning this computer. After reading the reviews for the Vision HT, I was pretty terrified that I would plug in the computer and get a faceful of fried powersupply smoke. Thankfully, nothing of the sort has happened!
Pretty impressed with the performance. I was looking for a (preferably upper) mid-range gaming machine that would also fit in as my primary, day-to-day computer.This fits the bill perfectly.
NOTE: I just today installed a Samsung 2.5'' SSD as my primary boot drive (the stock HDD is now relegated for file storage).
Pros: Quiet, reliable, and high capacity
Cons: Honestly, none come to mind. Perhaps my use case is a little more limited than most, though?
Other Thoughts: Been running two of these in RAID on my NAS drive. Beautifully stable. The only read/write bottlenecks I've encountered are network-related. Solid HDDs.READ FULL REVIEW
