This review is from: Lenovo IdeaPad U510 59347424 15.6" Ultrabook
Pros: Backlit keyboard, HDMI out. that's about it
Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE. Lenovo gave me the 3rd degree when I asked about downgrading to my own purchased copy of windows 7 and threatened to void any warranty services if i switched off of windows 8. driver support is horrendous with windows 7 and even on 8 things just magically stop working whenever they want to. the beep this thing makes when the battery gets low sounds like we're still in the early 90's and it seems to drown out any other noise in a 20 foot radius of the machine. the touchpad is over sensitive and i find my cursor moving around from time to time when i attempt to type- resulting in garbled sentances with half words mixed together with whatever it chose to place the cursor by. a usb keyboard solves this, but shouldn't be needed. had this thing for 2 months now and the fan over the cpu/gpu gets LOUD now. great. the thing is already dying and havent even hit 6 months.

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra SDSSDH-120G-G25 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: installed windows 7 when I got it... yippee.
Cons: DEAD after 1.5 years. Purchased from the egg in November of 2011, as of right now this thing has been dead for a week. STILL trying to get ahold of SanDisk for a return within 3 year warranty. Rather have my money back to buy a different brand. WILL NOT BUY AGAIN EVER
Other Thoughts: three different sata ports, three different sata power cables on a modular psu, three different sata cables- ALL ended in a stall on post at whatever device port it was plugged into, and both the bios AND Windows 7 repair disc unable to detect the drive to fix it.

This review is from: Koutech IO-HDDS02 DIY Mounting Adapter for 2 x 2.5" HDD/SSD
Pros: It got here. (see below in cons)
Cons: It got here FIVE days after the order was placed- on a wednesday afternoon before the close of the business day with THREE day shipping selected. Holes for mounting drive to 3.5 interior bay DO NOT LINE UP WITH COOLER MASTER CASE (elite 430). Too expensive to ship back for an RMA as this was already an overpriced piece of plastic. Guess I'm eating this one or melting it down to make a stupid paperweight. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!
