Very happy

Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad 5 15ARE05 81YQ0009US AMD Ryzen 7 4000 Series 4700U (2.00 GHz) 8 GB Memory 512 GB PCIe SSD AMD Radeon Graphics 15.6" Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad 5 15ARE05 81YQ0009US AMD Ryzen 7 4000 Series 4700U (2.00 GHz) 8 GB Memory 512 GB PCIe SSD AMD Radeon Graphics 15.6" Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Pros: Light, quiet and good quality for cost. Under battery power the performance is still excellent and good for up to 10hrs.

Cons: There is no room for adding additional hardware. Display viewing angles are not great.

Overall Review: You get what you pay for. This little laptop will do little/medium work loads without trouble.

Sapphire Pulse AMD Radeon RX 6600 Gaming 8GB GDDR6 HDMI / DP LITE EDITION Video Card 11310-04-20G
Sapphire Pulse AMD Radeon RX 6600 Gaming 8GB GDDR6 HDMI / DP LITE EDITION Video Card 11310-04-20G

Pros: Quiet - I can't hear this card idle or at 100% load. Small - It is quite a bit smaller than the RX 590 pulse it replaced. Efficient - If you want a space heater, this is not the card for you. I run it stock and it never crosses 70º C. Gaming it is pulling 100W typically but boosting I'm guessing it does use the 140W as advertised.

Cons: Quality - This card feels mostly plastic. The i/o shield has silver tape covering the two missing ports. If you didn't know already this card only has one HDMI and one DP. Cost - Well what can I say... I paid 2022 prices for something similar to the 2060 Super.

Overall Review: This is not the card for everyone. It is a RX 6600, but I think there are enough changes that this should be called something different. Some frequencies are different and again it only has two outputs. Sapphire designed this card with existing parts and the least costly cooling solution. For being a Sapphire product, it does not have that premium feel. That being said for my needs this is excellent. I only use a single monitor and can play my games in 1440 over 100fps. This replaced my RX 590 at double the cost, but is newer, cooler, quieter and as I understand it has more features which I have yet to use. If you are on the fence because the price all I can say is the future for low end DGPU looks bad. I do not see prices improving anytime soon and if you look at the secondhand market it is grim. If you get this at a reasonable price, I'm sure you will come to the same conclusions I made.

Fine, but not perfect

KEF Porsche Design MOTION ONE In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones
KEF Porsche Design MOTION ONE In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

Pros: Decent quality sound Durable Great battery life Looks nice

Cons: Earbuds are not the most comfortable and dangle around when not in use.

Overall Review: As stated above these are acceptable and my only real gripe are the ear buds are overly large and cannot be stashed on the neck brace.
