Pros: Very fast. Second 840 EVO I've bought. The first 120gb drive was used in my main tower about 8 months ago, this 250gb one went in my laptop and completely sped it up. Samsung data migration was easy as usual, installation was relatively easy as well, and Magician software is great with the RAPID mode.
Cons: Maybe a little expensive at $180 compared to other 250gb drives but well worth the money.
Other Thoughts: Great drive for a laptop or desktop. Very satisfied with boot times on bothREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: -I7 4770k is INSANELY fast. My laptop had an i7 2670QM and my last computer had a i7 870. This thing mops the floor with those last 2 chips.
-Graphics card is one of the best cards FOR THE PRICE. It isnt a great video card overall, but for $100, it runs most games on high-ultra setting quite well.
-2TB hard drive is more than enough space for anything you would need.
-8GB ram is the sweetspot for gaming and everyday use. Will probably upgrade to 16GB later on
-Case lighting is cool
-Windows 8.1 isnt as bad as it may seem to be at the start. Takes a while to get used to, not a con.
Cons: not sure if audio ports on front weren't working or it was just because i hadnt set up realtek audio manager yet but the back ones definitely worked. Wouldnt even say its that much of a con.
As other people have said, the HDMI out on the video card is too tight to the case, had to use DVI, but im sure if you upgrade to a different card it will be fine. If not, just shave off some of the HDMI cord or get a slim HDMI.
Other Thoughts: Great computer from what i can tell so far. Will be upgrading to gtx 770, 780, or radeon r9 290 sometime soon, also adding in SSD soon when it gets shipped. Keyboard that came with the computer isnt bad, the mouse however isnt very good. Feels cheep, but i just use my razer deathadder mouse anywayREAD FULL REVIEW
