GIGABYTE P34GV2-CF4 Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4710HQ (2.50 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 128 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 4 GB GDDR5 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: IPS gorgeous display, Intel I7, SSD and Hard drive, super light weight, Nvidia Maxwell 860M with 4gb of memory! Lighted keyboarrd. Very easy to upgrade the memory, pull Icover and insert memory Dim. Gaming on this and doing more serious work is better than I expected, playing games at max settings for the most part very doable and smooth with exceptions at 1080p.

Cons: Really not too many here, lack of touch screen which works well with Windows 8.1. Keyboard could be better, keys are a little flimsy or sloppy

Other Thoughts: For the money this is one good deal, thank Goodness there is not much bloat ware, in fact this is the cleanest OEM installed OS I've seen - Great job Gigabyte for this. Gigabyte did include smart manager which gives you fast access to various settings which you have access in other places in the OS.

ViewSonic VX2270Smh-LED Black 22

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: IPS, good pixel density, low cost, very thin bezel, looks good

Cons: After about 2 months the OSD randomly comes up on the screen and the buttons are not responsive or work to close and then they reopen. This makes this monitor unusable. 30 day Newegg Warranty expired so now I need to contact the manufacturer

Other Thoughts: Will re-rate after attempts/fix

PowerColor Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 AXR9 290 4GBD5-MDH/OC 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Outstanding performance! Crysis 2 Ultra high res textures, Tomb Raider and Metro 2033 all max settings I am getting 34%-39% higher performance over my HD7970 at 2560x1440 resolution.

Cons: While the blower (fan) is quieter then my 7970 at a given percent, playing games you can definitely hear the fan while not irritating it is there. The current beta drivers OverDrive does not work which will probably be fixed in the near future

Other Thoughts: I was hoping to unlock to a 290x but the GPU is locked (determined by software, no flashing done). So far the card has been rock solid and really no significant issues. I am very tempted to buy another one to CF them. Which will be my first but the number of positive comments from others is getting the best of me
