wow, it's crazy fast.
Pros: 1. Windows Experience Index Score 7.9 2. Windows 7 start in 7 seconds after beep. 3. Most of applications open in no time.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: My first ssd is 128GB Kingstone V100. It is pretty fast at its spec SATA II. I bought one for my son's first rig. After I saw the drive performance, I didn't hesitate to buy another for my gaming rig. I loved to buy second one. There are lots of tweaks or tips on ssd setup out there but such information could be more formally and officially provided by manufactures, OCZ or Microsoft. Some of the crucial points to avoid BSOD is that OS should be installed after AHCI in BIO setup. For higher performance, you can turn off or disable system restore, defragmentation, write cache buffer flushing, drive idexing, PREFETCH AND SUPERFETCH, windows search in WIndows 7 Don't forget to check trim function. Optionally you can get additional several giga bytes by disabling page file and hibernation, which doesn't affect the performance, if you have more than 4GB RAM.
Wrong product information
Pros: Great design built quality
Cons: This machine doesn't brew K-Cups. Newegg posted wrong information. Be aware.
Overall Review: I had to return this but Newegg charge $12 restocking fee plus shipping cost of which exact amount was not disclosed . I had better keep it not to lose most of the cost.
Pros: One of thinnest laptops. One of RAM Banks is user accessible. Easy ssd upgrade. SSD can be installed either in SATA bay or mSATA port.
Cons: Non touch screen The other RAM bank is not accessible. The installed Windows 8 didn't work(already registered by other use) Price was dropped by 75 bucks after purchase
Overall Review: I had to buy a copy of Windows 8 for this laptop because the pre-installed OS didn't work. The product didn't have any detailed information about the OS. On the bottom of it there was Win 8 logo sticker but No authentication sticker was present.
Inexpensive, thinest gaming laptop
Pros: 1. Powerful GTX 750m SLI - almost equivalent to GTX 560TI 2. i7-4700QM boasting WEI 7.9 3. Full HD LED display in 15.6" 4. Almost half height of other gaming notebook.
Cons: 1.Despite it's thin, the overall dimension is big considering it's 15.6" model. Size is 15.2" x 10.2" x 1.4". It doesn't fit my lovely TUMI 'Alpha - Large' Expandable Organizer Computer Briefcase 2. Non-aluminum case - it's plastic 3. Keyboard backlit is red. 4. Oversized power adaptor : 6-3/4 X 3-1/8 X 1-1/4, a weapon size. 5. Terrible HDD. I had to replace it with 480GB ssd.
Overall Review: What I would recommend to this laptop, 1. Buy a sdd and forget about HDD. 2. Pull out 2X4GB ram modules and sell them on an online market - you know what it is. Feed it with 2X8GB 3. That's it.
