This review is from: Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro 13.3" Multimode Laptop with Intel Core i5-4200U 1.6Ghz (2.6Ghz Turbo), 4GB DDR3L RAM, 128GB SSD, WQXGA+ QHD+ 3200x1800 IPS 10 Point Multi Touch Display, 360 Degrees Hinge
Pros: - Thin and Light chassis
- Touch screen
- Fast processor
- Foldable to fit any need
- Amazing resolution!
Cons: - Keyboard layout
- Screen and trackpad can delay on inputs
Other Thoughts: This ultrabook is hard to beat. It comes with a 4th gen Intel processor, QHD screen, updated integrated graphics, a small, lightweight form factor, very sturdy build quality, all in package that prices for 30% less than the competition. My two cons are the keyboard, which has a slightly different layout from my previous laptop, so that will take some getting used to. Second, sometimes gestures on the touch screen and track pad can take 2-3 tries before the proper action is performed. Minimal bloatware makes for a fast and enjoyable experience right out of the box. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good drive fit, fast transfer speeds (usually 30-35MB/s for large files).
Cons: Needs 2 USB ports for power and transfer (included cable has two attached about 6in apart, so may be inconvenient for those who don't have two side-by-side USB ports).
Other Thoughts: Gave second life to an old laptop platter drive and saved me a bunch compared to buying a new USB external HDD.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LG 42" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV 42LV5500
Pros: The TV is in a stand-alone setup (no receiver, cable box, gaming console) right now and it works quite well. I thought I would need a sound-bar, but I've been happy with the audio so far.
This TV has a very thin profile. The swivel stand allows for easy viewing from the kitchen. It streams Hulu Plus with no problems. It was even able to pick up local HD channels from the basic cable input we put in it.
Cons: Wand tends to be more difficult to use than standard remote in most instances, but it is a nice concept. Also, Hulu tends to play at very low volumes. Watching TV is sufficient in the 30s, but Hulu requires the volume to be set at 80 or above.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very impressed.READ FULL REVIEW
