Pros: Bought it for my wife. She loves it. Screen is bright and clear. Keyboard layout is good. Mouse pad is in a good location. It's light enough to sit on her lap and doesn;t generate too much heat for what she does (facebook, email, and online shopping mostly). Mouse gensture support is neat, she likes that. Out of box configuration is pretty good. Shuts dowm by itself after no activity for a few minutes.
Cons: Battery life is about 3 hours. That's what is advertised, but always would like better. Mcafee is a 60 day trial. then you have to pay or switch. Some bloatware, but not much. Hard drive is a little slow, but once things are up and running it's not a factor.
Other Thoughts: The activation of the office starter suite confused my wife. I had to take care of it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The desktop kit had everything needed to install in a desktop. Mounting rails, screws, and SATA cable. The cloning software was perfect, a bootable CD. Installed the SSD, checked that it was there in the BIOS and marked it as the boot device. Booted to the CD, cloned my Hard Drive. Rebooted. Windows 7 installed some drivers, rebooted again, and done.
The improvement in speed is great. Boot times cut in half. Applications start faster. Icons populate folder views instantly. And quiet, I didn't think I would notice, but I do. No more hard drive sounds when I click on applications.
Cons: Would have preferred a SATA cable with 90 degree fitting on the end by the SSD. Just makes a neater installation. Just a personal preference.
Other Thoughts: I'll never use a mechanical hard drive for the OS or applications again. Still need the old hard drive for media data (Music, videos, and pictures). And for system backups. But looks like the new standard is SSD for the OS+Apps and HD for data.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Sound quality and range is great. We cna use them all over the house and they sound great. The other cordless phones we have don't work near as well. The intercom feature is great; no more yelling up and down the stairs. The phones are sturdy and have good weight. Uses AA rechargables, not some special battery. Battery life is good but we do tend to keep the on the charger all the time and have had them only a week. Call ID announce is great to have.
Cons: Would be nice to be able to label the intercom stations on the menus; ie: Instead of 1, 2 ,3 etc.. have 1. Bedroom, 2. Kitchen, 3. Family room, etc... Wish they had a set with 6 phones in it. I could only find a 5 phone set and I am seriously considering buying the extra handset. Call ID announce usually comes on the 3rd ring.
Other Thoughts: An All-Call on the intercom would be nice.READ FULL REVIEW
