Pros: I bought this laptop for my partner to game on. It actually runs games pretty much like my Alienware desktop, and that's saying something for a device that's (generally) portable.
Cons: It's huge. It's heavy. The trackpad is terrible (ours just doesn't work anymore, but before then it only barely worked). The display gets really bright, but doesn't get very dim. Also, it's got halogen-bright status LEDs that shine regardless of the laptop's state, so you can forget about keeping it where you sleep.
Regarding portability, it's pretty unwieldy. It doesn't fit in most backpacks, and the external power adapter is about the size of an actual brick.
Overall, it just seems like it was designed in a hurry without much regard for usability or longevity.
Other Thoughts: If you want a gaming laptop that you'll actually enjoy using for more than a few months, just get a MacBook Pro and load Windows on it with Boot Camp. $1500/9mo > $3000/24mo.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DVD, DVR PC host VGA/S-video/Composite Video to PC Monitor/LCD VGA Converter Switch
Pros: Converts RCA and friends to VGA - perfect for playing Nintendo games on digital monitors.
Cons: The image sometimes (rarely) needs adjustment, but that's what the menu is there for. The image quality isn't fantastic, but that's probably not this device's problem - it is converting from analogue after all.
Other Thoughts: A must-have for retro gamers who have modern devices.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Beautiful and fast. It renders graphics amazingly well and without a hitch. It blazes through the most rigorous settings - it's truly amazing.
Cons: The card that I got does the vertical bar system crash thing, but it isn't the kind you can fix. I already tried everything - Sapphire suggested I RMA it, which I'm going to do. It's really too bad.READ FULL REVIEW
