Acer Aspire V15 Nitro Black Edition VN7-592G-71ZL 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great price
Excellent build quality
Very light

Cons: prone to dust,
should've been offered with an SSD at this price

Other Thoughts: Ok, so i bought this laptop with next to no research aside from viewing and comparing its specs to other laptops in the same price range. Ultimately, even though this laptop didn't have any reviews. I decided to take the plunge and pick it up, and I have to say I'm everything but disappointed. In fact, I'm impressed.

My last notebook was a 17 inch vaio back in 2013 and that thing was a powerhouse, but weighed a ton. this little guy trumps the vaio all day.

I got the version with an HDD & 8GB of RAM, and it still performs very well. I'm an illustrator/designer by trade so i needed to get something that could put with with adobe's software demands, and ofcourse needed that extra power to get my gameage on too every now and then. I was considering a macbook, but felt like it was a waste of money just to pay my "cult entrance fee" and get Sh*fted in the end financially.

during my time of ownership, i've had only two small gripes. (and i'm just being picky) first one, the inside material that surrounds the keyboard wears dust like it's going out of fashion, i just clean it once a day. But man, really?

My second gripe is the HDD, I feel like Acer could've definitely thrown an SSD in this puppy at this price.

But hey i just got a 6th gen i7 quadcore laptop with a 4GB 960m graphics card, if i'm complaining about SSDs and dust, there's something wrong with me.

AMD 760K Richland Quad-Core 3.8 GHz Socket FM2 100W AD760KWOHLBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fastest processor owned to date.

Cons: Heatsink. 'nough said.

Other Thoughts: The original temperature reads were alarming to say the least... (70C at idle) however after doing some research i found that for some reason these processors run hot out of the box regularly. (would have been nice for AMD to include a heat-sink to compensate for this) however, not worth removing a star for. It still never over heats dangerously.. even playing Crysis 3 on High, with 16x AA. At a price of only $89.99 you can't really justify any negative emotions about a product this good. lol.

If you're going to buy this processor and plan to overclock, I would personally recommend going with an aftermarket heat-sink. I personally purchased the EVO 212 just to be safe.

But can honestly report no reading above 70C while under heavy load.

I will also add... she has barely any thermal paste on her (if any) I almost returned her originally thinking i got a lemon CPU (cleaned for reboxing/return)

If you've read this far.. just buy the thing!

UpStar M240A1 Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: SHARP. Like whoa... This thing was a surprise.. Had never heard of this brand before and was a little nervous about ordering it.. but needed a cheap, HDMI input 24 inch monitor, and quick for a design build... $140. That's all. It also has speakers too!! (if you're into that sort of thing) ofcourse these speakers aren't amazing.. but are actually also surprisingly loud, True colors as well! Have not used HDMI yet, as cable is still in mail. (am using a VGA Cable with DVI Adapter) It also arrived next day...

Cons: Honestly... not much to say here.. except.. sometimes when the screen is black I can see these faded gray lines about a third into the monitor on each side. It's not bad or consistent enough to return.. but still something to point out.

Other Thoughts: All in all quite a surprise... If you're reading this.. I suggest just buying the thing. The $140 was well worth it.
