DEEPCOOL U PAL Laptop Cooling Pad 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: does its job and well

doesn't take up a USB slot completely

Cons: at first it was perfectly quiet, but after a week there is a slight coil whine from one of the fans. Honestly I don't hear it unless it is dead quiet in my dorm room.

There's this tab on the USB plug that to me has no purpose, maybe it's to help pull it out, but it just blocks other USB ports so I cut it off.

MSI CX61 2QC-1654US Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i5 4210M (2.6 GHz) 8 GB Memory 750 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 920M 2 GB 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Blazing fast components

fast boot times with windows 10

I regularly play GTA5, CS:GO, and DotA 2 with no frame rate issues.

A couple of months ago in the summer I left it in the car, it overheated and wouldn't boot. MSI was quick to RMA and the tech support member was quick in diagnosing the issue and telling me what to do next. The whole process took 2 weeks and they returned the CD I left in the drive and updated the BIOs for me. Very professional support and would buy and recommend this brand again.

Cons: This baby gets HOT quick. I would redo the thermal paste and buy a cooling pad if you play any seriously taxing games, for me GTA5 I have to have the cooling pad on.

The build quality seems a bit on the low side ,but that was what I expected for the price and components inside.

MSI 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -i5 is a beast

-dedicated graphics card

-750GB hard drive

-Runs videogames I did not expect.

-I like how the keyboard feels myself, it is small but it has a nice push resistance.

Cons: -Not 1080 resolution, which is strange in this price range

-comes with windows 8

-Usb 3.0 drivers only sometimes work. (maybe from downgrade to win 7)

Other Thoughts: I tried to use windows 8 for about a week, but this is not a touchscreen so I switched to windows 7. Unfortunately windows 7 didn't install any drivers automatically. not even Wifi or Ethernet drivers and I had to use Linux to get them, wasn't too bad but still a pain.

Ran every game I have so far. Source engine games are a breeze. League of legends runs perfectly and so does Splinter Cell Blacklist, surprisingly.

Its a good little laptop for $700, I bought it for college and has served me very well so far. It does everything that I want it too besides a few USB 3.0 hiccups.
