Pros: Great product - seems to be the official Riccar part (all metal parts and such), great shipping, great customer suppport. Unfortunately on a hunch, I replaced the bearings on my current Riccar roller assembly and it fixed the issues I was having so I returned this item.
Cons: Unfortunately I did not get a chance to use it, I replaced the bearings on my original Riccar Roller Brush assembly and that resolved my issues. I had the issues resolved before this part even got here.
Pros: Sound is good, and I consider myself to be an audio snob. Very clear microphone as well.
Cons: Clear sound, cord management is nice since only one wire goes to the earcups.
Overall Review: Bass is weak, mids are okay.....Use an equalizer and you can compensate for it.
Pros: Great monitor - Does what it says, great colors, very sharp picture, nice blacks, vibrant whites. Would recommend.
Cons: None that I can see so far
Pros: Well built, easy to punch down to.
Cons: Does not punch down the cables itself...lol
Overall Review: Simple easy to use, good quality patch panel. Was able to knock out all 48 terminations on this with no issues.
Pros: Drive is very fast, easy to install, added about forty minutes to my laptop battery life.
Cons: Small. Hard to transition from huge mechanical drive to smaller SSD.
Overall Review: Overall, great buy, has added about forty minutes to my Lenovo ideaPad y560 battery life. Would do it again, perhaps should have gone for the 250 GB drive.
Pros: Cheap, solidly built cable
Pros: Great battery life.
Tiny USB adapter can be left in all the time.
Really like the uber fast scrolling with the middle mouse button, but then can make it "clicky"
Cons: The bottom thumb button....man....In theory, great idea, but I tend to rest my thumb on it, and it wants to switch applications for me. I just need to disable it in the software.
Overall Review: Great mouse, great deal. Newegg rocks, got me the mouse, my laptop and a cable a day before I was expecting it.
Pros: - Laptop seems to feel lighter than the 5.9 pounds that they claim
- Video card and processor are amazing
- Lots of bang for the buck
- Great sound
- DVI connection is nice for external monitor
- Solid build quality, does not feel flimsy anywhere
- Nicely styled laptop
Cons: - HOT HOT HOT! When I was reading the reviews about the heat I thought people were overreacting...It gets plenty warm after a gaming session.
- LOTS of bloatware - Not really a con for me as I almost always reformat and reinstall as soon as I get a new computer.
- Powerbrick is huge.....which is really ironic considering how sleek the laptop is. Not really a con if you are using this laptop as a desktop replacement and will be immobile, but the power brick is huge.
Overall Review: I love this laptop, it plays SCII, BFBC2, WoW and TF2 with very very little hesitation, the size, shape, build quality is great. I was very happy with the sound quality, the keyboard has great response and the trackpad (which I use rarely) has a great texture to it. I can easily be streaming Pandora, gaming, and working on a paper with no issues. Right after I got mine, I found out we are replacing our Dells with Lenovo's at work and I am honestly happy about that after buying this one.
A couple of extra accessories to think about; DVI to HDMI cable if you are going to connect it to another monitor, and really a nice mouse that has a tiny RF USB connector.
Overall, a great laptop, Newegg rocked it again, getting it to me a day earlier than I expected. Will probably end up buying another one for the wife.
