MSI GS Series GS70 Stealth-037 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 12GB Memory 750GB HDD 128GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It will play any 2013/2014 game you throw at it at 1080p with decent-to-excellent framerate

Cool keyboard backlights

Cool fast-charger for phones via USB

thin. thinner that most regular laptops, not just gaming ones

fast as a bullet

very pleasing aesthetics

better speakers than you'd expect from a laptop

screen looks good and is very bright

nice features

minimal bloatware

Cons: Weird CTRL key problem

not really meant for gaming on your lap
non-standard keyboard key arrangement (who do they think they are, getting rid of the left Win key?)

kills 120W power supplies (the stock one included)

Other Thoughts: Definitely the most convenient and low-profile gaming laptop I've ever seen.

It smashes through games like XCOM Enemy Within at 60fps, 1080p, high settings without breaking a sweat...
except that if I put it on my lap, I'm the one who has to break a sweat. I don't blame the laptop though, since its so thin, its hard to imagine having this much power in such a small chassis without the heat output.

After reading all the bad comments about the touchpad, and before I even tried to use it, I immediately updated its driver and turned palm-sensing down to the minimum setting. If you do this, the touchpad is actually much better than your average Windows laptop touchpad. Still, its no match for the Mackbook Pro touchpad. I just don't know why no Windows laptop-maker seems to be able to match its accuracy.

Also be very careful when handling this laptop with one hand from the left/right side. I've found this to be a problem with pretty much ANY LARGE LAPTOP, but it seems particularly bad with this one since its so thin. Just make sure you grip it from the front/back if you one-hand it, not the left/right side and you'll be fine. Always carry it two-handed if you’re grabbing left/right.

My only real complaint is that the CTRL key seems to randomly get stuck... even though I didn't press it :( This appears to be a defect, but I really can't afford to be without a laptop, so I guess I'll just live with it

Finally, this laptop burned out its stock 120W power supply; I bought a third-party 120W power supply and it killed that one too; I ended up having to get a third-party 180W psu and that works fine. Even the stock 120W ran dangerously hot before it died. This "Prudent Way" brand 180W psu keeps cool even during long 3-hour gaming sessions.

Changhong 50

3 out of 5 eggs Odd problems embarrass an otherwise good product 03/24/2014

This review is from: Changhong 50" 1080p LED HDTV - LED50YC2000UA

Pros: boots fast
good IQ
above-average built-in speakers
great input selection

Cons: included VESA mount screws are too short to be useful
fuzzy display from PC via HDMI
very limited display settings (especially over VGA)

Other Thoughts: I took one egg away because the TV won't allow native 1080p input from 3 out of 4 PCs I tried. The best I could get was 1360x768 scaned to 1080p on those three machines, which looks awful on this TV. These same PCs output 1080p beautifully to a Hannspree TV I have with no issues, so I know the PCs aren't just broken.

Oddly, it accepts 1080p input natively from the PS3 and PS4 without issue.

So I was like "fine whatever, I'll use VGA" which sucks because I can't adjust sharpness, tint, or saturation on VGA input. This results in inferior color settings as compared to my older 42" Hannspree. This resulted in another egg deduction.

Based on these problems, I would not buy another Changhong. I only kept it because it was free with my GS70 laptop (which ironically is one of the PCs that this TV won't do native 1080p for)

TP-LINK TL-WR841ND Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button, 2 detachable antennas
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: looks good
good range
good interface
works
WDS mode works great
lots of features

Cons: don't expect extremely high range like with an ASUS router

Other Thoughts: This is good for a medium sized apartment, but don't expect insane range like the $180 ASUS routers.

I use two of them in WDS mode because my XBOX 360 S has an awful wifi antenna that can't keep up with streaming recorded HD from an HDHomeRun Prime unless its right next to a wifi source. So I WDS'd two of these routers, and wired my XBOX 360 to the second one. Works great now!
