DELL Notebook (B Grade: Scratch and Dent) Latitude E6400 (NBDEE64M22MECBG) Intel Core 2 Duo 2.20GHz 2GB Memory 80GB HDD 14.1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It kind of works, I guess
Comes with a Windows 7 License

Cons: Small hard drive
Low RAM
Backlight pretty severely damaged
No option to buy extended warranty for Accidental Damage from Handling, and I don't recommend you buy the "extended warranty plan" because it says specifically "does not cover damage due to accidents," which this being a scratch and dent would probably void that warranty all together.
LOTS of bloatware

In order to be productive at all on this machine, you need to uninstall all of the bloatware like VLC player, LibreOffice, etc. They slow the system down to a crawl.

Even after uninstalling the bloatware, I still had to add 2 more GB of RAM to get this system to run at a somewhat reasonable speed for the year 2015.

System runs EXTREMELY hot.

Does not come with an original A/C adapter. It is a $10 replacement adapter off of one of the bid sites or something. It fits and does charge the computer, but the power brick part of the charger gets EXTREMELY hot to the point where you almost can't touch it safely.

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra $70-$100 and get a modern, decent new ASUS or something for around $220 or $230 on sale. This machine is absolutely not worth the hassle.

ASUS Laptop K553MA-DB01TQ Intel Celeron N2930 (1.83GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6
  • Verified Owner

1 out of 5 eggs Waste of Money, Drivers for Windows 7 Not Fully Supported 04/03/2015

This review is from: ASUS Laptop K553MA-DB01TQ Intel Celeron N2930 (1.83GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Price

Cons: Cheap Carbon Fiber Construction
Shows fingerprints really prominently
Lacks key drivers for Windows 7
Does not come with items needed for reinstallation of Windows 8

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed in ASUS products across the board, but especially with this purchase. Their tech support was also unhelpful.

They could have given me some options to provide me with the reinstallation software like Dell *ALWAYS* offers me free of charge, OR they could have offered me to return it to the manufacturer and issue me a refurbished replacement. They did neither.

PNY Turbo Performance 32GB microSDHC High Speed microSD Memory Card Model P-SDU32GU190-GE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does what it's supposed to so far
Inexpensive

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The problem with MicroSD cards is that they're like flash drives. They corrupt pretty easily. Usually when your device gets dropped (even if it's not a massive drop), or comes into contact with liquid (even if it isn't submerged totally), all bets are off with MicroSD cards.

I feel that they're great when they work right, but my advice is to ALWAYS keep a backup of whatever you have on your MicroSD card on a hard copy somewhere else.
