Cons: None yet. I upgraded from a Dell XPS1530....need I say more? Night and day as far as speed of all operations are concerned. Very pleased.
Overall Review: If you're looking for a good lappy with a good webcam, this is it.
Pros: CD key worked.
Cons: Used a burnt DVD from MS site as it was a newer win10pro version, but really the only reason for the purchase was a Key, which was fine.
Overall Review: If you're looking for a legit, up-gradable product this is it..
Pros: The CABLE was exactly what I needed to use the 6 Gig SATA cable on my board as the connection is directly below my large video card.
Cons: The only down side is that, in my opinion you're lead to believe your purchasing TWO cables not ONE.
Overall Review: Silverstone 500mm Ultra Thin 6Gb/s Lateral 90-Degree SATA "Cables" with Custom Low-Profile Connectors (CP11B-500)
Pros: Fast setup, WiFi connected without a problem.
Cons: So far I have nothing but praise to this printer.
Pros: Looks pretty
Cons: Incredibly cheap.
Overall Review: Give it to your kids to play with....
Pros: Decent motherboard, CPU, and Kybrd/mouse. The video card is acceptable for light gaming and most office functions. Looks good.
Cons: The lack of WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities are not troubling to me as I did my research ahead of time and purchased the appropriate adapters to go with the computer.
What does trouble me is the cheap and flimsy case that houses the computer. This was a last minute Christmas present or I would have built a system. Naturally a built system would have been a few hundred dollars more, but the components could have been upgraded as well. Don't get me wrong it's "decent" for the price, but the case is about a 2 on a 1-10 scale and the one I received was actually falling apart. I use duct tape to hold it together while setting it up for the grandson.
Pros: Paid 220.00 wit a back-plate in 2015.
Cons: Why is newegg charging 480.00 for the same card two years later??!!!
Pros: Great design with a crisp picture. I see people complaining about really insignificant perceived problems concerning, "oh, I have to touch the controls twice, oh, I have to think a little to set up multiple displays"...really? Probably the same type that complain about having to double click or use their turn signal.
I bought this monitor at the "shell shocker" price of $229 and think it's a steal!
Cons: None yet, if I eventually have issues I won't hesitate to post them.
Pros: Inexpensive and works as advertised, even with win8.1.
Cons: Pretty flimsy, almost delicate and as others have mentioned the usb cable is crazy short.
Pros: Small and shinny. The software GUI is pretty.. :/
Cons: As others have stated the supplied drivers don't work with win8.1 and the new, "8.1" drivers work poorly at best. Unlike some reviews I'm able to connect on the 5 gig band, but unable on 2.4...
The adapter doesn't lose connection, but it's terribly slow. Best I've managed was around 26mbps, which is pathetic.
Overall Review: I'm not sure if the adapter's poor performance is all OS related or if it's simply a poor piece of hardware.
Pros: Honestly, for the price, I can't find much wrong with this laptop.
Many reviews had warned of poor WiFi, however I've found it to be exceptional when connected wireless to my home network. I would recommend for anyone looking for a good, cheap solution.
Cons: My only con would be Windows8.1 being pre=loaded on the machine...bleck! As other have mentioned just d/ld "classic shell" or similar and the OS is tolerable.
Pros: Nothing too technical to discuss, the adapter is made out of quality materials and works as described.
Pros: Looks good and pretty much does the job. Good buy for the $$.
Cons: Wish they moved a little more air.
Pros: Intel Core i5-3450 Ivy Bridge runs at 48c on all cores under full load while running folding at home, 24/7.
Cons: As mentioned by other reviews, the printed instructions are very poor, Do yourself a huge favor and watch the you tube vids on installation..they will really save you a lot of headaches.
