Other Thoughts: I installed this into my Acer Aspire V5-552P-X617. I could not be more happy. It plugged right in to replace my existing 2GB stick.
In case you do not know, this laptop has 4GB Soldered into the motherboard. Non-upgradeable. It has 1 Slot that can handle up to 8GB of DDR3. This RAM is the fastest that it will accept.
Pros: Great paint job inside and out
Awesome blue-saphire LEDs
4 USBs on the front (2)2.0 + (2)3.0
Cons: Front fan is a little loud
Now here is the real problem. I have a PNY GTX 650 (GPU). This card only has DVI and Mini-HDMI ports so I use the supplied DVI -> VGA converter. When I put this computer together the first time, I got no screen out of my GPU. I tried a million different things; reseating my RAM and CPU; Unplugging every piece of hardware and testing seperately; Even trying other hardware.
Turns out that the back slot that the GPU connectory (DVI + HDMI) poke through is curved in just a way to keep the adapter from completely coming in contact with the GPU port. OK so I figured it out, nbd right? Nope.
From unplugging and replugging all my hardware soo many times, I believe the static fried my HDD. This is deffinitely a direct result of the bad case design.
I would recommend this case if it is the only one on Newegg that fits all your needs as in my case. But when you plug anything into the ports, get a flat or philips head and secure it down. Tight.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that I am a cup half full kind of guy and I wouldn't exargerate pros or cons. This is the first product I have not given 5 stars to on newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
