Most Favorable Review

Perfect

ASUS - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700HQ (2.40GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M - 12 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (N56JR-EH71 )
ASUS - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700HQ (2.40GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M - 12 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 64-bit - Gaming Laptop (N56JR-EH71 )

Pros: *Nice design. Looks really sleek and stylish *Full HD display that is really bright and vivid! *Fully back-lit keyboard *The size is perfect. It's not even close to being bulky *Core i7 is a BEAST *760m is awesome for on the go gaming *4 USB 3.0 ports *Easy to upgrade; HDD is easily replaced with SSD. *Room for more memory *Win 8.1 upgrade with no issues *Hypervisor compatible. No issues with VMware workstation. *Asus logo is illuminated!

Cons: *Battery life can be an issue if you need this away from an outlet *Had trouble booting from USB to do a clean install. Was more of a hassle than an issue. *No display port *5400rpm HDD

Overall Review: I mainy bought this one to game while I was away from home. The CPU and GPU should be more than enough for all your games and tasks. 12gb of ram allows me to run multiple VMs with out worrying too much. I replaced the HDD with an SSD. Removed the optical drive and installed a hard drive adapter (N82E16817997055). Now I have the SSD for the OS and the HDD for other data and a USB optical drive. Overall I am completely satisfied with my purchase and would definitely recommend this laptop for power users and gamers.

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA Series Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity GV-R685OC-1GD

Pros: Awesome while it lasted. 3 year warranty Price/performance Dual fans Color

Cons: Died after 5 months

Overall Review: Card was working fine for a few months. No video signal, fans are not spinning up. RMA was approved, will be sending back. Other than that this card is awesome for the price and stays way cool with the dual fans. I love it but too bad it died. Hope this does not happen again with the replacement card. Planning to crossfire this sucker in my new build.

Awesome

KINGWIN HDM-229 Metal Mounting Kit

Pros: Nice HDD mounts that work. Not much else to say here.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Moved my hdd's into the 5.25 bays. Now my drives are hidden and my case has so much more room and ventilation near the front intake.

Nice...

XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad
XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad

Pros: *Lots of surface area for you to move around on. You won't have to worry about your mouse moving off the mouse pad. *Really smooth cloth. I use a Roccat mouse and it glides perfectly. *Price

Cons: *Weird smell when you first open it up. It will go away after using it.

Overall Review: This is my second one. I used one for over a year and it was getting dirty so I bought another one. No cons other than the smell and the price is awesome for such a nice pad.
