Black & Decker SSL20SB 20V MAX Lithium Drill/Driver with SmartSelect Technology
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: lots of power, good runtime, and easy clutch selection. light for the power it has too. outperforms cheap W@lm@rt corded drills while being quieter, and much more convenient.

Cons: only comes with 1 battery, get another at least.

Other Thoughts: way too powerful for delicate work, but can be used for such jobs on the lowest clutch setting. first time using it I was fastening inch and a quarter plywood to 2x4's for a desk, and expecting this to be like other cordless drills of yesteryear I had the clutch on the highest screw picture setting. long story short, twisted the heads off of three screws and deeply countersank four others before I got smart and backed the clutch down. never even so much as bogged the motor down in the process though. no indication it was overtorquing the screws until it happened but that was my fault for having the clutch set incorrectly. this isn't a toy like those old ni-cad drills, this is a professional power-tool. get it you wont be disappointed.

Factory-Reconditioned SSL20SBR 20V MAX Cordless Lithium-Ion Drill Driver with Smart Select
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Powerful
holds charge a long time
stands up to demanding jobs

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this is not a 'toy' it is fully capable of serving as a replacement for plug-in a powered drills. two stage gearbox and fully variable speed make it versatile too.

HP Laptop Pavilion 17-e049wm AMD A-Series A10-5750M (2.50GHz) 8GB Memory 750GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8650G 17.3
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: AMD
large screen
large ammount of hdd space
good battery life.

Cons: windoes 8/8.1 instead of win7.

Other Thoughts: only con is win8 but easily fixed by using linux dvd to kill all hdd partitions then booting win7 dvd and installing.
get drivers from AMD not from HP and you're good.
this also gets rid of the bloatware problem hp, dell, and other manufacturers are notorious for as well.

win 8/8.1 is a lot better than vista was, but it has a long way to go before its a good os. "upgrade" to 7 and you'll be glad you took the time.

to those having fan issues, this is a high end laptop, get a good laptop cooler and you're good.
