Most Favorable Review

Every Thing i was looking for!

SAMSUNG Laptop Series 3 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3210M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7730M 15.6" Windows 8 NP350V5C-T02US
SAMSUNG Laptop Series 3 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3210M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 7730M 15.6" Windows 8 NP350V5C-T02US

Pros: -Core i5 3210M -AMD HD 7730M 2GB -Bright display -Full keyboard layout (Num pad) -Inexpensive -Durable

Cons: -No scroll up or down on the mouse pad -5400 rpm HDD -Not A LOT of bloatware but still too much Note: With Windows 8 now using bios to store your OEM key you can easily obtain Windows 8 download from Microsoft and install Windows 8 (core edition and or what ever edition your computer came with) and it will not ask you for a key, it will auto detect your key loaded in your bios and activate once you get to your desktop so say goodbye bloatware. Remember if you need drivers after a fresh install just visit your manufacturers site under support to obtain your drivers after selecting your model.

Overall Review: Perfect laptop and first purchase of a Samsung laptop, its has everything i was looking for with its i5-3210M, AMD HD 7730M 2GB Card and full keyboard layout support! Plays every game i throw at it (med to high settings with modded drivers ). Note: used Leshcat’s Catalyst 13.1 WHQL UnifL for AMD+Intel Laptops, when you buy laptops most of the time your limited to manufacturers drivers but Leshcat drivers allows for MOST AMD+Intel laptops to run up to date driver for your GPU's with no issue, use your friend Google if you wanna know more about it. Thank you Samsung! you did good!!

Most Critical Review

Good when it works......

StarTech.com MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200
StarTech.com MDP2HDS Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Active Video and Audio Adapter Converter - 1920x1200

Pros: Does what it should when it works.........

Cons: No con's that i could think off, its just a cable......

Overall Review: Worked for 2 hours then signal kept crapping in and out even after trying 3 different HDMI cables and both my mini display ports (AMD HD 7970 in crossfire). Will be receiving replacement and if i get the same problem i will stay away from StarTech.

Very fast and quiet BUT it died after 20 days............

EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC ULTRA GAMING, 11G-P4-2383-KR, 11GB GDDR6, Dual HDB Fans & RGB LED
EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti XC ULTRA GAMING, 11G-P4-2383-KR, 11GB GDDR6, Dual HDB Fans & RGB LED

Pros: - Fast, Fast oh and FAST! - very quiet

Cons: - poor over clocking via OC apps because of VERY low power limits via software side - Price but that's a giving on launch

Overall Review: - Card DIED after 20 days of use but my replacement is on the way from EVGA - Only 2 fans, would love to have had triple fan but 2 fans gets the job done, never went over 68c while gaming - Over all i'll give 5 stars because its not EVGA fault the card died, stuff happens and that's why we have warranty

Very good buy!

ASUS Vivobook S400CA-Si30305S 14" Touchscreen Ultrabook Intel Core i3 3217U 1.8Ghz 4GB DDR3 RAM 500GB HDD 24GB SSD Windows 8
ASUS Vivobook S400CA-Si30305S 14" Touchscreen Ultrabook Intel Core i3 3217U 1.8Ghz 4GB DDR3 RAM 500GB HDD 24GB SSD Windows 8

Pros: -Lower end but powerful Core i3 3217U -4GB (integrated on the board) still one slot open -500GB Seagate Slim HDD design -Touch Screen of course -Gigabit LAN (i have a 150MB down/65MB up) -Nice mostly brushed metal finish, feels very solid

Cons: -4GB (integrated on the board) still one slot open but i guess it's necessary to keep the slim design. -MSata connector designed to fit half height SSD(See other thoughts)

Overall Review: Well the Msata plug positioned to fit a half height SSD but i managed to hook in a Crucial M500 240GB to install windows 8 and use the default Seagate 500GB slim HDD for storage files. Also added a G.Skill 4GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) for 8GB total and replaced the Wifi with a Intel 7260HMW BN IEEE 802.11 N300 Mini PCI Express plus Bluetooth 4.0 - Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Combo Adapter with a 130MB connection (almost my full 150MB download). Note: In video i point out that a little plastic foot need to come off in order to fit a full sized Msata SSD, it does not effect the laptop in anyway. Also not sure if i am gonna return to ASUS for repair but my Webcam doesn't work or get recognized by the PC.

Very Good Cooler for the $$$

Cons: None

Overall Review: To the temps shown in Pro's, I have my PC in the basement so i am sure that helps a lot! Best Cooler i have owned, got it for $39.99 shipped, $30 gift card was used + the 48hr sale price of $79.99 and $10 Rebate.......what a deal.
