Lenovo Laptop G50-80 (80E501U3US) Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 5500 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This laptop is replacing my old laptop that was pretty slow.
First impressions:
Fast, once you get rid of the bloatware
500GB is plenty of storage for me (even with all the steam games I put on it)
6GB of ram should be plenty for me.
The Core i5 CPU is pretty fast.
Haven't tried any games yet on this laptop, but the Intel HD 5500 should be better than on my old laptop
Speakers are awesome. They are loud and they sound clear.
The keyboard is pretty good.
The display is bright and clear as well.
Even though it's plastic, it feels solid. No flexing at all.

Cons: Bloatware galore. This thing is full of bloatware, including the SuperFish adware. Luckily, there are seveal utilities for removing bloatware and Superfish.
The mousepad is junk like on most laptops except for the MacBooks. It has too much friction, which is why I have a wireless mouse.
The HDD is 5400 RPM. 5400RPM drives are slower compared to 7200RPM HDDs and SSDs.
The display isn't the highest resolution, but that doesn't matter as much to me.
Another con is there is only 1 USB 3.0 port if you have USB 3 devices.
The Wireless N built in adapter should have at least included 5GHz.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this laptop is a great deal for the price. I never expected to find a laptop with a Core i5 Broadwell for the price I did.
Newegg is awesome!!!

TRENDnet TC-CT68 Ethernet Crimper
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome crimper 11/15/2014

This review is from: TRENDnet TC-CT68 Ethernet Crimper

Pros: I bought this Ethernet crimper because it looked like it had a solid build quality. It does. The first time I used it, I knew right away that this ethernet crimper is a solid tool. It's not cheaply made, and it does the job perfectly.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I got this crimp tool so I can crimp ethernet cords when I need to make cables.
