This review is from: Acer TimelineU M5-581TG-6666 15.6" Ultrabook
Pros: Thin and light. Not quite the thin ultrabook its marketed as but certainly better than the standard laptops by a long shot. Love the geforce gpu, and yes it is the full gt640m not the gimped LE version. Battery life is great and the build quality is surprisingly good. The feature thats really welcome is the backlit keyboard which is really great for typing in low light situations or while surfing on the couch in a dim lit livingroom.
Cons: Blue screen when first booting up which was most likely caused by the optimus graphic switching drivers. Only happened during the initial startup but certainly not something someone wants in a brand new laptop right out the box. Its not happened since. Also the rubber foot pads are off level so it makes the laptop seem off balance. This is a very minor annoyance.
Other Thoughts: Really well rounded laptop that is amazing for the price. The screen resolution was positioned as a weak point in the reviews but its more than adequate. The I5 while not an I7 is paired well with the other components. Gaming is very good and I would recommend this to college students who are looking for the most bang for the buck. Also the keyboard is very good and the off center touchpad doesn't get in the way like I thought it would.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vantec Stealth 92 mm Double Ball Bearing Silent Case Fan - Model SF9225L
Pros: These have a lifetime warranty but their known to be just about bulletproof reliable. Plus they run cool and near silent(even more silent if you slow them down). If only more products could be this way.
Cons: Not a con but for some reason people these days think these fans are outdated. Last time I checked alot of aftermarket coolers use 92mm fans and alot of off the shelf computers do as well.
Other Thoughts: Honestly I saw these fans about 100 times before but for some reason I figured I would give them a try after building my newest build and finding the cpu coolers fan was the loudest thing in the case. A quick and easy swap and boy was I surprised. Runs cooler at almost half the speed of the previous fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Was recovered from a house that was vaporized by a EF4. The unit was pulled by the wall socket as it was lifted and thrown with the home about 50 yards. The metal housing only started to come apart. I plugged the unit in to the pc and to my shock it works perfectly. Tested with no issue whatsoever.
Cons: Doesnt predict the weather.
Other Thoughts: You may be thinking this was a fluke but if you saw the damage and I told you the psu was still in one piece let alone in great working order you wouldnt believe me. The tornado that hit the house was 190mph.READ FULL REVIEW
