Acer Aspire V5-573P-9899 Notebook Intel Core i7 4500U (1.80GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, quiet, long lasting battery, Windows 8.1 is not that hard to get used to, excellent screen.
Purchased for under $600.00 so my other review needs to consider this fact. I tried to update the original review, but could not find a function for it.

Cons: Touchpad is sensitive, price has increased dramatically since my original review. Fear of refurbished unit caused me to purchase a 1 year NewEgg warranty.

Other Thoughts: I've seen this model of laptop advertised on the Acer website for more than $1400.00, so the current price still seems like a good deal. However, I purchased my laptop for less than $600.00, and the price is much higher now.

Acer Aspire V5-573P-9899 Notebook Intel Core i7 4500U (1.80GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast processor, large screen, back-lit keyboard, long power cord.

Cons: Single surface touchpad (no separate buttons for right and left clicking), makes getting a right-click action a pain.

Other Thoughts: The 15.6 measurement turned out to be a lot bigger than I expected. I guess I'm old and I'm used to a 15" screen meaning 1" of the edges being unusable black space.

Completely forgot about the touchscreen ability until I shoo'd away a bug and the screen jumped (freaked me the hell out!).

I did pay for the 1 year extended warranty, just not ready to gamble with the "refurbished" stigma.

Synology DS213 Diskless System DiskStation - Simple Set-Up, Easy Efficiency

5 out of 5 eggs Fast setup, slow update, solid performance 11/04/2013

This review is from: Synology DS213 Diskless System DiskStation - Simple Set-Up, Easy Efficiency

Pros: Easy setup, dropped in a single 4TB HDD (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178338). I may add another for a RAID 1 mirror later on. But this was purchased to replace my old PC gaming rig that was running as a plex media server, so I wanted to keep things cheap.
It took about 20 minutes to setup (including unboxing)

Cons: Adding all of the files over the network took about 13 hours (migrated 816GB of data). But I didn't do it very efficently, just dragged and dropped all of the files.
Also, the Plex Server metadata download really hindered performance until it was complete (took the whole weekend).
Not really a major con worth removing an egg, I'm just impatient.

Other Thoughts: My old gaming rig running at 200-230watts was replaced by this thing running at 18-20watts. After the metadata updates it's able to stream 1080p video to my Roku XS's Plex client with no problem. Plex Video Channels (Daily Show, etc) are better left at lower video resolutions.
Now I'm sorely tempted to look into other features of this device. Which I will most likely mess up and require a reformat ;)
