Pros: Light weight
Easy to open up, maintain, and upgrade.
5th Gen Intel i5 Core processor
Cons: This laptop has an annoying white list for a finite list of acceptable wireless cards. I tried to install an Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 7260NGW wireless card, and the BIOS said it was an unauthorized wireless card. I then attempted to install a card even listed in the Lenovo G50 Maintenance Manual, which was an Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 3160NGW wireless card, but it too was blocked!
Doesn't have a higher resolution LCD screen, but what do you expect for this price.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this Lenovo G50-80 laptop a few weeks ago. I got it on sale. Overall I've been pleased with it. I have upgraded it to 16GB of RAM for only $110 more.
Things like not being to upgrade the wireless card will tend to make me want to look elsewhere for another brand next time I'm in the market for a new laptop.
It looks like I'm going to have to use a USB Dual-band wireless adapter instead. Bummer. :( I want to use the 5GHz spectrum so I don't have to deal with problems of living in a very population dense neighborhood on the 2.4GHz spectrum.
Pros: - Pretty heat spreaders.
- XMP memory settings.
- It just works, no hassles.
Cons: None found yet.
Other Thoughts: This RAM is installed in a GIGABYTE GA-Z97-HD3P Motherboard with a Intel Core i7-4790K CPU. It works well with no issues. I set the XMP mode in the BIOS along with other cookie cutter automatic RAM performance settings and was off to the races. I haven't tried playing with advanced timings since I'm not a tweaker so much anymore.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Adjustable head band and can accommodate larger heads.
- Great sound quality for the price. Much better than I had expected.
- Bluetooth 4.1
- Fairly simple to pair to a phone.
- Covers the whole ear.
- Can produce loud sound. (Be careful)
- Seems to be well constructed.
- Not too heavy. Can wear for long periods of time.
- Can use a traditional 3.5mm jack ended cable to listen to music, or use it to share music with another person with regular headphones. (I haven't tested this, but it's listed in the manual.)
Cons: - Bleeds sound outside of the headphone to where others can definitely hear it about 10-15 feet away when you turn it up loud.
Other Thoughts: The manual is OK, but I was able to set up the headphones just fine. It's pretty much like any other bluetooth device.
Overall, I'm happy with these headphones.
