Most Favorable Review

Great Value

Acer Laptop Aspire E 17 Intel Core i5 6th Gen 6200U (2.30GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 940M 17.3" Windows 10 Home E5-773G-5464
Acer Laptop Aspire E 17 Intel Core i5 6th Gen 6200U (2.30GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 940M 17.3" Windows 10 Home E5-773G-5464

Pros: Latest Skylake Processor Good specs

Cons: Bad viewing angles on screen Finicky touchpad Slow HDD

Overall Review: As others have said great value for the money and also as others have said a true pain in the rear to upgrade. Replacing the slow HDD or upgrading the memory is not an operation for the faint of heart. That being said it you move slowly and use the resources of youtube it can be done and the results will lift this slow HDD machine to a peppy SDD machine. I'm not crazy about the dual video setup that seems to default to the Intel graphics (great for battery life but performance sucks). Overall a value purchase with a strong upside through a couple of upgrades.

Most Critical Review

Was great while it worked.

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver, 32GB Storage 3GB RAM, US Warranty
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver, 32GB Storage 3GB RAM, US Warranty

Pros: Large crisp screen Love the double tap to wake phone Good WIFI reception Strong signal when used as an hotspot

Cons: Quit charging after 2 months also quit being recognized by the computer going with the RMA replacement because I like the phone but I have concerns.

Overall Review: I have a suspicious mind when a company offers cross shipping RMA/replacement for only 1 device on their support site. It is admirable that they are looking to make the replacing of a failed device easy. Will the replacement suffer from the same issues? That makes getting a replacement vs return for refund a 50/50 gamble.

Works for me

Micron M500 480GB SATA 6Gbps 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD). Micron MLC NAND Flash memory MFR PART# MTFDDAK480MAV-1AE12ABYY (OEM) | Certified Refurbished.

Pros: SSD for under $100 Cert Refurb I figure recert testing is better than OEM QC Brand name, reasonably fast or lightning compared to the 5400rpm drive it replaced.

Cons: None at this time.

Overall Review: Shipped in static free bag in bubble sleeve. Cloned it using the Corsair kit (Item#: N82E16812304002) and was picked up with no issues by the laptop. much faster than the 5400 spinning drive it replaced.

Nice Caddy!

BYTECC BRACKET-CD950BK 4 Channels Laptop Caddy Tray for SATA III HDD/SSD
BYTECC BRACKET-CD950BK 4 Channels Laptop Caddy Tray for SATA III HDD/SSD

Pros: All metal Perfect fit Holes for retaining bracket perfectly

Cons: Nothing for me. Not sure if the rubber/plastic instruction sheet in the tray was supposed to be removed but I pulled it out as best as I could.

Overall Review: Priced fairly, all metal construction (except the tool less HD tabs and retaining block). Fits perfectly make sure you get the correct height 9.5mm vs 12.whatever mm.
