Pros: Good Laptop at Good Price, obviously not a gaming laptop.
Cons: Must install Bluetooth and Wireless drivers (as mentioned by another reviewer) before the wireless nework speeds are usable.
Other Thoughts: Helped Dad pickout this laptop because the price and specs, was very disappointed in the download speed, thought something was wrong with his wifi. Read some reviews that this can be fixed with installing windows 8, didn't want windows 8, so we took the advice and installed the Broadcom drivers, and the laptop is great now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: This is a good drive. I was able to use free tools to move my OS to it (I also moved my local profiles off of my mechanical drive before installing the SSD) Programs install fast, run quickly, and windows boots up in just a few seconds. Keep in mind that there is little difference between a fast and slow ssd.
Cons: Yes, it is not the fastest drive out there, but the current price per MB is very good for a high quality, reliable SSD.
Other Thoughts: (I use junction points liberally.)
I hear a lot of people move their games to a mechanical drive, and I understand that, but consider what you use your computer for... if you game more than you autocad, maybe you wait a minute for your computer to start up (Slow?) and use the SSD for your favorite multi-player games and then your the first one loaded on every map? Just my 2 cents. Or maybe you buy two SSDs, one for OS, one for favorite games (and one or two mechanical drives for profiles, other games, and data) and have the best of both worlds.
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: Bought these for FPS Gaming, they work well. What you really notice with the simulated 7.1 is how far someone is from you and crisp sounds. For example, in Titanfall, I heard someone hack a turret and was able to take them out. Great Price at newegg.
Cons: None I wasn't prepared for when I researching the different options. I do not hear the mic noise that many others have complained about.
Other Thoughts: Originally was going to get the wired version (1500) but found these on a shell shocker for a very good price (less than the 1500. Am very happy with them.READ FULL REVIEW
