Pros: Laptop is pretty fast with the 6th Gen CPU and M.2 SSD. Very thin but deceivingly heavy. System feels solid without a lot of flex. Screen is anti-glare.. Battery life is pretty good too. 5 1/2 hours or so normal use per charge. Probably get closer to 8 with power saving settings. The rubberized coating on the palm rest is also nice.
Cons: First was the drivers. Had a couple failures when i ran the Lenovo system check program. Some drivers were out of date and there were no updates on Lenovo's site. Had to go into device info and right click on the devices and click update. Seemed to work fine. Second is the lack of cable and tray for the HDD. Didn't read the reviews before buying so I wasn't expecting that. Did some searching online and found a place that does sell the cable and tray parts. The site is Encompass.com and the part numbers are: Cable: 5C10K25544 Tray: 5B40K25518 Total cost for both with shipping is around $20 so it's not a lot to get the system where I want it. Placed my order so will update when I get them installed. Last is the 12GB's of RAM. Not sure why they would put in a 4 & 8GB stick when it's only a few bucks more to make it 16. The web site says max RAM is 16 however Crucial site says it will handle 32. Not sure if I want to spend the money for 32 though.
Overall Review: Got this as a Christmas present. Replacing a Asus N550JV with a 4th Gen i7 that has had a few issues with keyboard. I'm not a gamer. Like the performance so I can run multiple VM's and the IPS/HD screens (less wear on the eyes). Overall the Lenovo is a solid upgrade. Only issue is not coming with the parts to add a regular HDD and not having them available from Lenovo to purchase. A bit disappointed with the driver updates too but overall very happy with the system.
Pros: This one is clear on the sides too which is a plus for me. Overall it's very thin and doesn't add a lot of thickness to the phone. The sides are rubberized making it easier to hold on to and the buttons are covered but slightly raised so easy to feel. The back is hard plastic. It seems like it's very scratch resistant. So far, not a single scratch on it
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Overall this is a very good case. The iPhone 6 is extremely thin so this adds just enough gel grip to make it easier to hang on to.
Impressive little board
Pros: Compact, fast, quite, cheap, USB3, full HD built in.
Cons: The only issue I had was the memory. Used a single PNY 8GB stick and it was glitch. Tried it in both slots and no difference. Changed it out for 2 4GB sticks and it's smooth as butter.
Overall Review: Replaced an old Atom 330 board in my mini home server. Got this to replace it. With the price being so low I expected an improvement in performance, but not like this. With Windows 7, the CPU pulls a 6.2, as does the direct x. This APU is no joke.
Great deal for those on a budget
Pros: Really good range for the price. Most cheaper subs bottom out at 30HZ, leaving the deep thumping base sounds unprocessed. With 500 Watts, the neighbors get to enjoy watching movies with me.
Cons: The only con is the lack of LFE input. It has left right speaker in and speaker out, or you can use the filtered RCA left right. Not a deal breaker, but it would have been nice to have. It takes a bit to adjust the volume and crossover, but once you have it dialed in, it's definitely fills up the room.
Overall Review: It doesn't compare to high end subs like Definitive Technology, but it doesn't cost like them either. I have cranked this thing up and it definitely delivers so if you are not an audiophile and are working with a limited budget, this is one you should consider.
Strong signal, easy to set up
Overall the product is very good. Signal strength for 2.4 and 5G is great. Provides overlap in coverage for just about everywhere in the house. Being a repeater i expected to lose 1/2 the network speed, but I'm getting about 20%. I got it for some home automation devices that had low signal strength and they don't require much so it's fine for what I needed it for. For the price it was a great deal.
