Pros: It's an SSD?
Cons: I was talking with a developer the other day who has the same laptop that I do. I was complaining about how slow my laptop was and I mentioned that I think they have 5400RPM drives in them (Dell 6430U, what we call "Developer Grade"). He said "I have an SSD in mine." I was like: "WTH, I want an SSD." Looked in Windows device manage and I do in fact have an SSD...a Samsung 830 series 256GB. I'm perplexed because I have never been impressed with the speed of this laptop. Boot time is that of a 7200 RPM mechanical drive..tops. It is an i7 with 16GB RAM and most of my software seems to take forever to load. I had a Dell i5 with a hybrid drive and it outperformed this machine easily. Don't know....just thought I'de throw in my 2 cents.

This review is from: Eagle ET-AR508LR-BK 140 Watts 2.1 Speakers - Retail
Pros: Kickin sound
Cons: Poor build quality that will cause component failure
Other Thoughts: Really poor buttons and power filtering which, in an audio system, ultimately lead to a pile of junk...in a short period of time. Spend a little more on something more permanent.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Eagle ET-AR504LR-BK 35 Watts RMS 2.1 Black Soundstage Speakers
Pros: Cheap, sounds good if it works.
Cons: Buggy, improper filtering/buffering of the power supply. When plugged into the same recepticle as other electronics it has a negative affect on their operation. Constant hum...I have moved the system to different outlets away from other electronics. Hums with a random pop (loud) that comes through the speakers.
Other Thoughts: After the unit popped REALLY loud and quit outputting audio I opened it up to have a look. The passive electronic components are VERY cheap and the build quality is fairly sloppy. I yanked the two ultra cheap 2200uF capacitors and I've ordered replacements which I will install. I will update this review if I uncover anything else.READ FULL REVIEW
