This review is from: LG 42" Class 1080p 60Hz LED TV - 42LN5200
Pros: great picture and great price
Cons: I'd like for the remote to be lighted, but for the bargain price, can't complain. It'd be glad to pay an and extra 5 or 10 bucks for lighted remote.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: i like the overall look and design.
Relatively easy to by-pass Windows 8 start screen with Pokki or other start app of your choice.
Runs cool, whisper quiet, i've not done any significant gaming as yet; however in comparison to my HP dv7t which would quite often be hot as .., the ASUS has not even become warm and have had no audible fan noise. Comes with 2nd disk drive cage in the HD bay, had to buy as extra accessory for HP dv7t.
Cons: Annoying screen flicker, which ASUS suggested to update the Nvidia drivers, which i did to no avail. Later i adjusted the refresh rate down from 60hz to 40hz which seems to have done the trick. The touch pad is larger than I'm accustomed, coming from an hp dv7t, I occasionally catch it with my palm which typically causes it to switch to another running app/window (windows 8 "feature" i suppose). Comes with windows 8. Appears Microsoft is attempting to turn my laptop/desktop into a tablet, which i don't appreciate. Received Windows BAD_POOL_HEADER error / crash just earlier today (maybe memory / maybe windows). date/time continued to change to previous day, which was resolved by changing internet time sync from time.windows.com to time.nist.gov.
Other Thoughts: maybe 1/2 WINDOWS 8 and 1/2 ASUS issues. Almost too soon to rate, but thus far have been somewhat un-pleased.READ FULL REVIEW
