Pros: It has great specs, and it mostly delivers until you have hardware problem with the system.
C and D drives are oddly split into two partition.
Well constructed. Good colling, no major faults.
Cons: Battery wouldn't charge. I really liked this product until, it would charge anymore during week 2 of usage. Previous usage times, I didn't notice. The battery always had 87% battery remaining on its tooltip text. I searched around the internet, some said this was normal, and others suggested that I take the battery down to 0% to see what happens. Well, after taking the battery down to 9%, the battery never went above 0% or 1% during recharge cycle.
So, I contacted ASUS, and they wanted me to ship the product to their tech center on my dime for the cost of shipping.
I then contacted Newegg for resolution, which the company promptly gave me a RMA and a return shipping label. Total turn around time could be about 2+ weeks. I bought this computer for developing software. Now, I am down, and having to resort to using vmware on my iMac - not portable.
I am almost thinking that, if the product you are using is some what mission critical, and require daily usage, you might consider Dell, HP, or Apple that can replace your product in a jiffy.
Other Thoughts: During last 3 years, my experience with ASUS products have been hit and miss. First Nexus 7 had to be RMA-ed. The ATX motherboard I purchased from here went dead after 2 years. Now, this.
My experience with Newegg has been mostly positive, and I will continually use its service.
About the IronEgg pricing... it doesn't quiet work as it should. You can only submit one per claim. I knew this product was $1650-ish from two sites one site that rhymes with "amazing" and another one that has its website starts with "bhp---". I submitted the price of the bhp--- that sold Macbook Pro, because at the time, I was looking for purchasing Macbook pro. I purchased the this laptop from Newegg knowing that price match can be done. Apparently, the site was not a qualifying website, which I didn't know. You have to click something below the link that sends you to the IronEgg Price claim web form. I resubmitted the price of the "amazing" website, and I got no response.
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro H70 CWCH70 120mm High Performance CPU Cooler
Pros: Easy installation. It works.
Other Thoughts: I have Intel P8P67, Corsair H70, Corsair Graphite 600T, G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB DDR3 1600, MSI R6950 Frozr II 2GB, Corsair TX750, OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB, and Intel i7-2600k.
RealTemp says 34° most of the time. I think this is very good thing.
- when I first try to install it, I was being stupid. the flat plate goes on the back of the mother board. I was so stupid to place it on the front. Once I correctly my stupid ways, the H70 was very easy to install.
This review is from: Corsair Graphite Series 600T Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Easy case to work with, nice grooves, cool chassis, plenty of space, and easy access to everything. Variable fan speed controller. Additional ports at the front. Good for nice cable management. Good air flows.
Cons: Placement of the on and reset switch - Not a biggie but it can be pressed relatively easily, which can reset computer. Other than than, this case is excellent.
Other Thoughts: I haven't built any computer for a long time due to past mix lucks. I purchased all my components from Newegg: Intel P8P67 M PRO (newegg’s sub vendor), Corsair H70, G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB DDR3 1600, MSI R6950 Frozr II 2GB, Corsair TX750, OCZ RevoDrive X2 240GB, and Intel i7-2600k for about $1900, which is very good, minimum $500 less than any retail computers.
Building this computer was breeze to build. All the parts fit nicely with all the easy openings and grooves to wire your cables all nice and tight. The computer stays very cool around 34° according to the RealTemp due to good air flows. I use this computer mostly for the MS Visual Studio, MS Expression, VM Ware, and Adobe stuffs. Case like this can be reused for the next time around.
I write this review on the very computer I built that’s equipped with the Dell U3011 in the middle and two HP w2408h on the sides. It’s a real beauty. This is how computing should be.
