Good for the price and then a little more
Pros: -Low Price -Lightweight -size -Good video for price -Battery life -file sizes are small -TV out allows it to record tv :) -Screen size is nice for the price as well -zoom isnt that bad -alot of extra settings to play with
Cons: -still pictures are pretty ehhh -when flash is on, you can tell its what took the picture -as the others pointed sound is not the greatest, i wouldnt venture to say it was horrible. -videos output to .mov, which is cool. but you're gonna have fun trying to upload those anywhere. -but then again, zoom isnt that great -it is by far, Not HD
Overall Review: Try to avoid taking stills,use a true digital or not digital camera. Im using this one as a play around cam, while ill save the more awesome stuff for the HF100 im getting in :) Final verdict. i am happy with this purchase. its 125 bux that i know ill put to good use, when out and about
Pros: Its an Enclosure. i got it with another item for the bundle price, so i cost me next to nothing
Cons: Nothing internal to protect it from moving around. Works when it wants to, and i mean that literally. If you have to pay more than lets say 5 bux for this thing. then forget it. i have to unplug and replug it several times just for it to be recognized
Overall Review: I would never buy this item by itself.
Buyer Beware!! Great laptop If you get the right AC adapter
Pros: - i7 Quad-core with hyper threading - Includes Docking station and 18 month warranty Download the Lenovo update tool and getting drivers becomes a simple process. Feels robust - Opening the laptop was simple, remove a handful screws and slide the keyboard. - Has plenty of power options for most scenarios - Has 2 USB 3.0 ports - flashing bios was very easy - Docking station was easy to use and has plenty of display ports, adds an additional 6 USB ports in the back.
Cons: - ***Received item with 90W adapter, requires 135W adapter to run properly. Newegg on Facebook made it right though*** - Laptop has a network adapter white-list so I can't use the Wireless AC network adapter I had purchased. - Heavy - Battery protrudes out the back - Matte LCD - can run hot - Has dual-channel memory slots. However to run dual-channel. you cant just open the back memory panel as they alternate. each spot has a memory slot from a different channel. Consult the hardware tech manual. - Glad that the Trackpoint button cap comes off, was getting in the way( i think mine just wasn't secure to begin with)
Overall Review: Overall great laptop at a good price. Purchased after previous laptop started to smoke. Installed a SSD and the laptop screams ***Make sure to check your power manager to confirm what size adapter you get. The 135W is a very large brick compared to the smaller 90W. The power manager will tell you under the battery menu.*** The cons are minor things that dont take away from the power. Removed 1 egg because of AC adapter confusion
Great Laptop, great Price
Pros: -Turbo mode -webcam -4gb of ram (3.5 for us 32-bit users) -9800M GS Laptop works great, can play most games on the highest res supported by the monitor.
Cons: -rubber feet on my cam off -Visat 32-bit -little heavier than most laptops(to be expected) -flex keyboard
Overall Review: I would have given this a 4.5 but cant. the user before me complaining about price because he's young..thats ridiculous. this is the same price if you were 10 or 100. just wished it had a bigger HDD.
Very Powerful card
Pros: -Very powerful -played Crysis with 1.2 patch at 1280x1024 on very high settings, with i believe 4xAA and 4xAF (could be higher,see cons) had a constant 20-30 frames -had to use 32-bit Crysis, Win7 didn't like 64-bit version -can be used with tmpeg express and CUDA,which was a big selling point for me.haven't actually tried it for myself
Cons: -Long card -fan size compared to overall length of card sparks my curiosity. -Requires 2 PCI-e power connectors,making SLI very hard to do unelss you have Molex to PCI-E adapters -takes up 2 slots.
Overall Review: 2 days after i first put this in my rig, fan stopped working. have already sent card back to newegg to get replacement. Seems as if v3 cooler should have been used. I like MSI, i have nothing bad to say about there products that i wouldn't say about other companies. there are always defective or products that fail. i have purchased MSI Motherboards and have a GT627-us laptop by MSI. they continue to prove that there products are very good
