Pros: Finally works as it should. Good support. Came with faster CPU and NVidia graphics chip. Quite clean. Fresh W7 load.
Cons: Took weeks to get a good battery and power pack. Support is thorough, but not fast. W7 took several hours to get updated and add virus protection.
Other Thoughts: A good refurbished laptop. This one came with a faster CPU and a real NVidia graphics chip. They load up a fresh Windows 7 with a new keycode sticker, and add a few odd pieces of software, which I removed. The support from the refurbisher is thorough, and slow. I had to remind them a few times to send replacement parts. They are very cooperative and realistic in dealing with support. In the end, it was satisfied, though along the way, it was a little frustrating as they will do stuff and say nothing, and then a box shows up at your front door with what you need and there's a pre-paid return label inside. Very nice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Operates smoothly. Very clean recordings. Can record six HD channels with ease. Fairly easy to set up and get the CableCard activated. Diagnostic software seems mature and runs well.
Cons: First unit received was defective. Ceton tech support is uncooperative and basically useless. Runs a little warm - I added a small USB fan that dropped the internal temp from 68 C to 47 C. The supplied USB cable for a tuning adapter is wrong - Ceton had to mail me right one!
Other Thoughts: Newegg was excellent at handling a replacement unit quickly. Ceton had a lot of nerve shipping these units with the wrong USB cable for a tuning adapter, especially since it's not standard. I would have given 5 stars if it had worked the first time and the USB cable had been right.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Really very fast. I'm not sure there is anything much faster. Windows 7 boots up in seconds. I put this as the boot drive in an Intel NUC box HTPC and it works very well.
Cons: This one is the replacement for the one I RMAed because it died after two hours - stone dead. I knocked the rating down one egg because of that.
Other Thoughts: This kind of SSD in a mSATA package may be the future for mass storage in a PC. Total silence and blinding speed - can't beat that.READ FULL REVIEW
