What's there to say really? I enjoy it.

Pros: Picture quality is clean and crisp, the controller and UI for navigating the settings is smooth as butter and easy to use. Lots of quality of life settings to fiddle around with. Despite not being OLED or anything of that nature, doesn't matter to me in the end. its great and i love playing my games on it.

Cons: Every now and again, when I go to turn it off, it turns itself back on somehow. I don't know why or how but it's always weird turning off the TV to get ready for bed, only for it to boot back up again a couple seconds later to surprise me.

Overall Review: I only docked off an egg because of the small con, otherwise, im genuinely satisfied with this TV. It has actively made my mom jealous. I intend to buy another one for her sometime in the future.

Great Laptop, No problems over the past 2 weeks since receiving... But...

Pros: Keyboard is very satisfying to type on. The machine feels very sturdy and the vents on the sides and back look very good. The zone lighting is fun to mess with and change the color combinations. When under intensive gaming, the there's virtually no heat on the top nor bottom of the machine. Fans do a great job of keeping the machine cool.

Cons: There is no instruction booklet on how to manage the Control Center. The machine does not come with Optimus and it seems impossible to change from the GPU to iGPU when not gaming or doing anything intensive.

Overall Review: When the product arrived, the seal tape was not placed properly over the lid which means my machine could have been tampered during shipment. Not only that but the cover cloth that was around the machine was scratched and dirty. Luckily the machine itself was spotless, but this leaves a lot of concerns that has me keeping a careful eye on my laptop incase something is wrong with it and I don't like this level of unease. Purchase with caution.

Tedious settup but worth the effort. Missing a cable though...

Pros: As long as you follow the instructions, its pretty much plug and play. Barely noticed the wire running down my back, very immersive. Though the quality and pixels are noticeable, once you start playing a game, you completely forget they're there.

Cons: Face can get pretty sweaty very fast. Lens can get fogged up and you will find yourself needing to wipe them clean. make sure to use microfiber cloth. The headset itself is very weighty on the face, but if you get the deluxe strap, it holds the headset so nice and snug its easy to forget you're wearing one to begin with.

Overall Review: I would have given this 5 stars, but upon arrival, the package did not come with the sync cable. In the product it clearly states this was supposed to come with a sync cable for the stations which it did not. I haven't bothered to contact support since it's such a minor issue, but this was very annoying even though I didn't need it. But there's no telling when I WILL need it. Please make sure to include everything that is described next time. I was told Newegg was very trustworthy, not a great start in my opinion.
