This review is from: ADATA DashDrive Series UV128 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Black/Blue (AUV128-32G-RBE)
Pros: Works fine, reasonably priced. Put it in a Raspberry Pi so I could back up files to it with BitTorrent Sync. It's been sitting in there for the last 6 months without any problems.
Cons: None at this point.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great CPU/GPU combination, good storage space, not too heavy considering its size, not too much bloatware and its fairly easy to remove, good build quality, upgradeable components (HDD, RAM) are pretty easy to get at.
As you'd expect of a laptop marketed for gaming, the screen on this looks great - very sharp with great viewing angles. I put it side to side with my ASUS N80Vm and the difference is absolutely night and day.
Cons: Doesn't support 5GHz Wireless-N networking. The BIOS that it shipped with has VT-x disabled and no option to re-enable it (had to flash a custom BIOS). Optimus is expectedly disappointing, but seems to be a necessary evil at this point if you want Nvidia.
Other Thoughts: Compared to many of the other offerings with similar specs (such as ASUS), this is a great price point for what you get.
Another consideration that's neither a "Pro" nor "Con" for me is that Nvidia's driver support for the GTX 660M is *just* appearing (it was in the 6/18/2012 driver update). As of writing, you need to manually modify the driver's INF files to get it to install, but it's worked fine since doing that. Nvidia has said that it was an oversight that some specific models are not recognized by the installer, so in theory it won't be an issue in another few weeks or so.
Pros: Relatively quiet, good price for good capacity (during sales, anyway), speeds are where they should be.
Cons: Nothing offhand.READ FULL REVIEW
