I like this machine
Pros: -Solid Lenovo quality -Nice size -Decent Processor -Good Battery -Bright Screen -Upgradable to Windows 8.1 PRO -Hardware can be upgraded -Super Easy access to Hardware and cooling system
Cons: I am annoyed by the lack of a HDD activity light.
Overall Review: I have upgraded this laptop a bit since getting it. I put in another 4gb DDR3 1600 CAS11. This made a huge difference. I also replaced the APU with a A10-5750m. Next I will replaced the HDD with a SDD. I bought this for school, I have a video arts class that needs something with so power.
Pros: looks nice,Quite
Cons: It has been 4 months and it is dying It tends works most of the time, but every once in a while it crackles and restarts over and over every 2 seconds never reaching bios, when it does start the Usb ports sometimes don't power on.
Overall Review: The restarting just killed one of my hard drives. I am replacing it before it kills anything else.
Pros: -Big Backpack perfect for a tall person like me. -Plenty of room, for school supplies -Fits my 15.6 Lenovo E545 perfectly -Thick Fabric (Doesn't look like it will tear easily) -Sewn together tightly
Cons: -Would of liked a way to securely lock the laptop compartment
Overall Review: This backpack looks like it will last me many years for school
Nice fast laptop drive.
Pros: -500gb of storage -Average transfer rate of 88.7MB/sec -Maximum transfer rate of 112.5MB/sec -Access Time: 16.9ms -Burst Rate of 82.3 MB/sec
Cons: -Higher heat and power draw
Overall Review: This drive is a huge boost over the stock WD Blue 320gb that came in my laptop, which capped out around 35MB/sec.
Pros: -Cheap -Stock Android -Low bloatware (Facebook, Twitter, instagram are considered bloatware) -Decent hardware (not high end or any where near close, but can play some 3d games without lag) -Install the app "FlashFox" it is a web browser with flash built in and it works perfectly. -Good wifi range -Good battery lasted me through a day at school -Good sound quality -Good Build Quality -2amp charger (charges quickly) -rooted by default
Cons: -no bluetooth -yeah for its price there isn't much more.
Overall Review: I got this for school, to stay organized, didn't expect it to preform this well, though.
Pros: Rigid and thick. Great Traction Tough
Cons: You can feel the bike vibrate from the rougher tread on the street. Not really a con, but a sideffect of getting a knobby tire.
Overall Review: I got this tireto replace the ones that came with my bike. The ones on it were just too thin, and would puncture easily. These tires can handle rocks and sand easily.
