This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Good speeds and very reliable. It's not top of the line performance but it handles daily use like a champ
Other Thoughts: I wish Crucial would release a Toolbox like Samsung/Intel have. This drive and the M4 i had previously aren't recognized automatically by Windows 7. I had to disable Disk Defrag and a couple of other items after the install. Other drives are detected as SSD and are tweaked automatically.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good viewing angles and touchscreen is capacitive not resistive. Dual HDMI ports and USB 3.0 port multiplier
Cons: Like many others I experienced ghost touches in a couple of different areas of the screen. One spot in the lower right corner was especially annoying because it was on the show desktop section for Windows 7...
Power brick... Really...
Other Thoughts: Anyone thinking about purchasing this should be aware that Newegg sells this with a non-refund status. So if (when) it breaks all they can do is replace it if it's within the 30 day window. If you're out of the window it's up to Acer to fix.
Disappointed with Acer's Quality Control. With so many people experiencing the same issue it's obviously not an isolated issue.
Pros: 802.11AC should be future proof and the card only requires 2 antennas to work.
Bluetooth and Wifi in one card
Cons: The connection speeds vary widely. I've got a Wireless-N router that only sends signal on 2.4Ghz. Something about this card causes it to drop from 100-144Mbps down to 11-13Mbps. Its not related to distance since I'll be in the same position and it will drop.
Signal strength has fluctuated from 100% to 60% but doesn't seem to correlate to the speed drops as they can happen with 100% signal.
Other Thoughts: If you change the cards configuration it will reset and go back up to the peak transfer rate for a while.
I'm hoping Intel will fix this. I wanted to replace an Azureware card that drops signal all the time with this. It's in my wife's laptop and i'm not sure this will cut it.
I bought an Intel Wifi Link 1000 a couple of years ago and that stays connected at 100% speeds all the time. So this card is a little disappointing so far.
