Pros: I wanted a monitor wide enough to show 2 windows side-by-side, without being too narrow for web pages. Mission accomplished!
Overall Review: With my Windows taskbar along the side, there is room for two windows @ approx 1200 pixels wide. I have not tried the 2nd HDMI port.
Wrong Graphics Card
Pros: NewEgg promptly offered me a full refund when I explained the situation.
Cons: I purchased this laptop because it was advertised to have an AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics card. This was incorrect. It actually has a much lesser graphics card (I forget exactly which one ... maybe 7520G?).
Overall Review: I had no complaints against the laptop itself, only that it was not as advertised.
Pros: I am impressed with the quality of this stand. It is big, sturdy, and a nice powder coat on the vertical pols lets you lock the clamps in place easily without over tightening them.
Cons: It took a bit over 1/2 hour to assemble and install. But now knowing how it works, it was more than worth it.
Pros: The keypad on the side is absolutely awesome for WoW. After getting used to it and configuring my action bars to leverage it, I didn't know what I would do without it. It's very comfortable - everything is great except the cons below.
Cons: My experience with the hardware is that it sucks. The first one I bought worked great for a while. Then the left click button got stuck down, with no remedy to be found. I exchanged it for a second one that worked great for a while. Then it would occasionally only move the mouse straight up or down until I unplugged it and plugged it back in. I exchanged THAT one for a third that worked great for a while, except that I would have to unplug it and plug it back in after the computer resumed from sleep mode. Then after a while it started randomly un-clicking and re-clicking while trying to drag the mouse. At this point I gave up and went back to my old 5 button mouse.
Overall Review: I wouldn't use any other mouse if the hardware was good quality.
