Most Favorable Review

Fantastic bargain

G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans
G.SKILL FTB-3500C5-D Fans

Pros: Runs silent and smooth, and it is very light weight. And it has pretty blue lights

Cons: The only downside was not the fault of the product. my motherboard only has clips on one side of the ram. So the fan only clips onto one side, but the clip is strong enough to hold it steady/

Overall Review: Well worth the price

Most Critical Review

Windows partition too small and annoying fan.

Pros: Not very expensive Not a lot of bloat (that you can see).

Cons: The fan emits a loud, high-pitched whine that makes it sound like the bearing is already shot. The Windows partition on the SSD is about 15GB too small to update Windows properly, so it hangs when trying to install update 1903. Normally, this would mean you would have to re-partition the drive, but the laptop was supplied without a Windows key, so that option is not available to me. Lastly, I believe that I am not the first owner of this laptop, as right after I started Windows for the first time, there were 3 other user accounts created on the machine already: sds, dsd, and feedme.

Overall Review: I cannot recommend this at all. Something as simple as making sure there is enough storage in the partition to hold the updates for Windows should be basic, and with the 3 other mysterious admin users in the system at creation, this whole thing leaves an awful taste in my mouth. A few weeks back, I tried ordering a different laptop from this company, but they cancelled my order after a few days. I think that this speaks more about Kuu than it does about the general quality of the product.

Good mouse, no durability.

ADESSO Mini Retractable IMOUSES1 Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1000 dpi Mouse

Pros: -Good precision -Small size -Easily retractable cord

Cons: -Buttons very stiff -Absolutely no durability!

Overall Review: I purchased this about 6 or 7 months ago to use on my laptop; travel with it, game with it, etc. Up til about a month ago, I have not really had the need to use it. for its size, it does fit comfortably into the hand and the buttons did start to loosen up (though not much). If I were to add up all of my time actually doing something on the computer using the mouse, I would estimate the usage to be about 100 hours total. Most of that is going to be surfing the web and watching youtube (not very mouse intense). A little after that 100-hour mark, my mouse no longer works. I can get the laser to light up if I align it up just right. It is my belief that the wire has a break in it from repeated winding and unwinding.

Got exactly what was listed.

Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I got exactly what was advertised. It plugged in and the drivers installed with no issues. I transferred all of my data onto it in just under 5 hours.

Cons: It is a little slower than what the math says it should be, but not by much. I am not sure if this is due to the IntelliPower or if it is being limited by the motherboard.

Overall Review: The speed difference is negligible, and has no weight towards the overall rating. I have only had it for a several days at this point, and I will update this review later if i have any issues.
