Pros: Fast Speeds
Cons: Persistent Connection issues
Poor signal strength on the 5.0Ghz band
Other Thoughts: I purchased this in february of 2013 from Newegg. It had connection issues from day one but I just figured it was my laptop, I have since purchased another laptop and the problems remain. This router has a lot of features but there isn't a point if its not working all the time...
Hopefully Buffalo will RMA my device as it should (3 year warranty) I contacted them when the issue first arose (over a year ago) several times but received no reply...
Pros: Fast Processor
Lots of Storage Space
Good All-Around Performance
Seems to be a new product
Cons: Windows 8
Lots of Bloat-ware
Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop as a replacement for my A6-3420M laptop. I wanted something cheap but powerful. I decided to go for the highest powered AMD chip with a 17" screen for as cheap as I could get. The performance is great once you dump the bloat-ware, it gets 7.1, 7.2 for processor and ram, and 6.7 for graphics. Like all HDDs it's limited to 5.9.
There are many faults I've found with the Laptop initially, the first is Windows 8... Still sucks, if its not a touchscreen it should be windows 7...
The biggest fault I've found with this laptop is its build quality... It doesn't feel sturdy at all, my previous Acer laptop could take a serious beating and keep going without issue, I feel like this one wouldn't stand a very small drop or bump. I don't even want to carry it with one hand because it flexes so much. I've had the laptop for a day and the keyboard has already "popped-out" in the middle. Also there is a rattling sound coming from the internals (if I tilt the laptop left and right I can hear a piece of something sliding back and forth). I'll wait to send the device in for service since if its just a lose piece that doesn't matter I don't really care...
The the final two faults are very minor, first is that it has a pretty slow/weak internet connection. I have a 600mbps wireless router and 150mbps internet and I can only pull about 40mbps in the same room as the router... My last laptop could pull 65mbps under the same conditions...
The final fault is that the keyboard is the same size as it would be on a 15" (or even smaller) laptop. This means its awkward to use on a lap because naturally your hands are spread wider to hold it but on this you have to keep them closer to the center...
The short of it is that I paid $424.00 for a laptop with an A10 5750 processor, 8 gigs of ram, and a 750gb HDD. It says refurbished but I would be willing to bet these were defective units that never made it to a customer because this laptop looks mint. It's a deal you can't find anywhere, I plan on using it on a desk and bringing my old laptop around for travel.
In case you're wondering the "wm" at the end of the name means this is a w4lm4rt (newegg wouldn't let me say the name) specific laptop. It came with a single W4lm4rt app as part of its bloat-ware, other than that I can't tell...
Hope it helps!
Pros: High Quality
Other Thoughts: This is a brilliant Citrine necklace set in Sterling Silver with chain. It comes in a nice outer box with bow and a traditional jewelry box inside.
This is a wonderful necklace.
