Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 (59359560) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI 2GB 15.6

  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Keypad, screen backlighting, sound and 3 usb ports. graphics capabilities.

Cons: Touchpad jumps around all over the place, so not recommended for any uses requiring precision. Updates by synaptics or lenovo did anything to improve it. Windows 8 is a definite 2nd choice, and unfortunately a "downgrade" to windows 7 was not available. Battery life is around an hour using office applications & max power savings

Other Thoughts: I upgraded the memory to the max 16GB and added a 500GB Samsung EVO PCI Express SSD which I use as my C drive (fits in vacant PCI Express slot - easy insertion). Previously I had tried using readyboost with a 64GB UHS Class 1 SD Card, but the performance increase was negligible, so with the SSD C drive the readyboost SD card became redundant

Acer B286HK ymjdpprz Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: reasonable color representation and brightness appears good. Excellent base and height/swivel adjustment parameters. The 28" screen is not too small to utilize the full pixel density.

Cons: I had to knock 2 eggs off for receiving a monitor with diagonal connected series of 6 black pixels. 1 or 2 together I could handle, but SIX!?

There also appears to be a small crack or possibly a deep scratch about 18mm long in the screen. The shipping box was undamaged, so I can only assume the defects were present when it came off the production line.

There should be some documentation about the excellent stand or how it works. The weight of the monitor is offset by a spring loaded base.

Other Thoughts: I don't have time to return the monitor for replacement as I need it for work every day. My solution is just to not buy Acer products again as this arrived looking like a refurb. I prefer that Acer offer me a discount for shipping a damaged product. Still... I would not buy Acer again.
