GIGABYTE P35Gv2-CF1 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Specs
Removable DVD drive. Comes with spare HDD caddy.
No Bloatware

Cons: Noise. Fans are loud all the time.
Flimsy keyboard.
Pretty shoddy trackpad. It's not even in flush...
Gigantic screen bezel
Weak battery: 4 hours idle. ~2 hours of basic wifi
huge power brick. At least it's thin...

Other Thoughts: I don't think I'm going to keep this laptop. I wanted to love it, and bought it despite the negative comments I've read elsewhere.

I wanted to give gigabyte a chance, but these cons outweight the pros. From what I've read they haven't made many improvements in any of these regards with the newer 3rd generation, either.
Guess I'll be buying a different brand laptop after all.

Antec P280 Black Aluminum / Steel Super Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great price for such a spacious tower. Definitely does not lack the airflow capability.

Cons: cheap fans.
I bought two of these, and out of 6 total fans, three of them have started making loose bearing style noises and I replaced them with cheapo cooler master fans that have yet to ever fail me.

Other Thoughts: If I didn't need these amount of PCI slots for the machines I built, I would of went with a Fractal Design Define R4 for a similar price. They are quieter too.

MSI R9 280X GAMING 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cards were cheap when I originally bought them (310CAD)

Cons: I have 3 of these cards and 2 GTX 760 with the same heatsink TWIN FRZR design and literally every single card sprays oil from the fans or something all over the place. Out of the total of 10 fans from the 5 video cards literally 4 of them stopped working within a month...

I used to praise MSI for their twin frozr heatsink back 2-3 years ago but this latest revision is by far the worst. I'm almost tempted to RMA the cards I have, sell the ones I get back, and buy different brand cards but that seems like a pain to do.
