Excellent Value

MSI GP Series - 17.3" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4720HQ (2.60GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M - 8 GB DDR3L - 1TB HDD - Windows 8.1 64-Bit - Gaming Laptop (GP70 Leopard Pro-486 )
MSI GP Series - 17.3" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4720HQ (2.60GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M - 8 GB DDR3L - 1TB HDD - Windows 8.1 64-Bit - Gaming Laptop (GP70 Leopard Pro-486 )

Pros: Excellent unit! This is a gaming unit, but I don't game, I wanted it because I do some amateur photography that is CPU intensive. It handles this just fine. Good monitor for what I use it for. Opposed to others the keyboard seems solid to me. Flip up screen seems solid. Not sure what else to say!

Cons: Battery life is a bit on the short side. Varies for me from about 2 hrs to 4 hrs. (even after calibration) Not a big deal to me. I find it annoying that when I disable the touchpad with the disable button, itz "forgets" that after restarting or even coming out of sleep mode.

Overall Review: Not a big fan of Windows 8.x, but warmed up to it enough to use it. Wish this had the option of Windows 7 without paying for a downgrade. Good value for the money. Equal to other systems that costs half again as much!

Excellent Mouse

Pros: Connected instantly with my system! With X-Mouse I could take advantage of the extra buttons. Still going strong on the original manufacturers batteries after 3 months (Used daily). Comes out of sleep mode instantly! Nice contour fit! No driver problems at all so far! I love this mouse!

Cons: None that I can think of!

Overall Review: Maybe would be nice if Logitech provided their own easy to use button assignment software (They have software but its not intuitive nor does it work right).

Works well

Pros: Works simply as expected. Amazed at how small this unit is! LOL!

Cons: I would not install the included software, but that depends on what you want. Would not work for me. I use Backup Maker that has the features I am looking for.

Overall Review: I use this the backup the 1 TB internal HD on my Windows 8 system.

Good Buy

Bluetooth 3.0 4D 4 Buttons 1 Wheel Wireless PC Notebook Mouse 800/1200/1600 adjustable DPI Black
Bluetooth 3.0 4D 4 Buttons 1 Wheel Wireless PC Notebook Mouse 800/1200/1600 adjustable DPI Black

Pros: Works well, connected with my Bluetooth no problems. I like the DPI button, I use the middle setting. Simple mouse, nothing fancy, but works exactly like what I was looking for.

Cons: I only have two things 2 say here, first it takes it a second to come out of "sleep" & reconnect with computer (not sure if this is the computer or the mouse causing it). Second I have had one instance so far where the computer said the mouse reported an error & the computer began ignoring the mouse. I disabled then re-enabled the driver & everything worked again.

Overall Review: Running this on a Windows 8.1 system. Excellent value, but a little slow getting here from Hong Kong. Would have given it 5 stars had it not reported error to the computer and locked up on me.

Great so far

Pros: My Blu-Ray burner burned these discs at 8X even though they are only 4X discs. Data was verified afterwards. Good price for the discs.

Cons: None I can think of.

Overall Review: I burned 10 discs this past weekend. All where verified, all were 85 to 98% full and past verification. They all burned with no errors.

Great
