This review is from: ASUS ROG G751JY-DB72 G-Sync Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60 GHz) 24 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 4 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit
Pros: Fast, high resolution 1920x1080, screen lighting doesn't distort at extreme angles, exceptional speed on the SSD.
Cons: Irritating bloatware, Secondary drive has a power efficiency mode where it takes 5 seconds to load it up even though it's already on. Audio makes a cracking noise whenever audio is turned on due to power management. Bought an ASUS machine in 2010 and this 2016 model is hardly much an upgrade due to all the downgrades it actually brings with it. Gsync doesn't work when using HDMI for dual monitor support and in fact causes more screen tearing than my 2010 model. Solid state drive is in 2 partitions with windows on one making it nearly impossible to merge them safely. Power cable still doesn't have anything holding it in place and will fall out with just a slight touch. Battery is integrated with machine and requires to be sent to the factory for any kind of repair. There is nothing special about laptop batteries except they're meant to be able to be recharged a lot. This is just ASUS trying to rip off their consumers by integrating it into the machine.
Other Thoughts: ASUS is clearly out of touch with their user base. Will be my last asus purchase unless they fix this by the time I want a new machine. I will probably just go for a stationary PC next time. Too much emphasis on efficiency when it's a gaming laptop.
Most of us just want a light weight gaming PC for easy mobility for moving around a lot not power efficiency, buy a Dell if you want efficiency.
Pros: Good memory size for price
Cons: Dead on arrival, issued 3 RMA's so far and all 3 have been dead on arrival. These are either extremely sensitive drives and shouldn't be shipped without fragile stickers, or Hitachi 'dropped the ball' during manufacturing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SABRENT SATA-C35U Serial ATA (SATA) to USB 2.0 Cable Converter Adapter
Pros: Worked flawlessly for about 2 weeks, then something inside the wires became loose or something of that nature.
Cons: Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Have to jiggle the wires for it to work.READ FULL REVIEW
