Pros: Price & quality
Cons: non so far
Overall Review: Buy this laptop.
Pros: Not a one
Cons: -Only 16 pci-e lanes = bad
-No quad channel ram support = bad
-No 16x sli support = bad
Intel totally messed this one up big time. This CPU is nothing more than a high end i5. You cannot due quad channel memory config. You cannot do 16x sli. Which is why anyone would even consider moving to this socket. This CPU is a total waste of money. To get a 2066 socket CPU that can do what my i7-3820 (which had 40 pci-e lanes) and was cheaper than this crummy processor, you have to spend over $1000. Once again, "GOOD JOB INTEL". The fact that they even created this CPU knowing all of its limitations was obviously on purpose and very greedy. I really hope they read this review and all the other reviews about this entire line of CPUs.
Overall Review: If you were considering buying this processor, "DON'T". If you read my cons you will understand. If you are considering building/upgrading your gaming system, give AMD a shot. Their Ryzen 7 line is pretty sweet for gaming.
Pros: -3x m.2
-quad channel memory
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Just a word of advice. If you want to build a 2066 socket PC and do quad channel ram and true 16x sli = you need to have a 44 lane cpu. Unfortunately, Intel is gouging the prices on these CPUs. The cheapest 44 lane cpu is over $1000. Shame on you Intel. All the i7s in this family are only 16 & 28 lane cpus. Once again, "SHAME ON YOU INTEL". "YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!"
Pros: PRICE IS NICE. CAMS ARE DECENT QUALITY. COMES WITH 1TB HARD DRIVE.
Cons: NO HDMI - THEY GIVE YOU HD CAMERAS, BUT AN ANALOG MONITOR OUT.
Overall Review: IF YOU DON'T CARE THAT YOUR LOOKING AT HD CAMS IN NON-HD THEN GET IT.
Cons: Where are the specs??? How do these people expect some one to buy this without any specifications at all? I know you can go look it up elsewhere, but thats besides the point.
Overall Review: Don't buy until information on this ssd is updates.
Pros: Price, features & what it claims it will do & support.
Cons: After building 2 of these units, they do not post. We have some crucial ddr3 1600 ram & an intel i5-4690k processor. Very frustrated. It is all compatible hardware, but does not work for some reason. I will return my whole order to newegg for a refund I am so mad.
Overall Review: I am extremely upset over this whole thing.
Pros: I guess price, but you will throw your money away on this one.
Cons: This unit is complete and utter trash!. Asus, you really fouled up this time. You cannot change your battery, hdd, ram, or keyboard without completely dis-assembling the unit. The system is slow. Like previous reviewer, full screen HD video is a chore for this guy. Last 3 models similar to this one I have worked on are all garbage and motherboards failed right after warranty.
Overall Review: I am a computer tech and a customer bought in one of these units last week. It was dead. No power, nothing. After completely dis-assembling this stupid thing 5 times, I finally got it to power, but no post. Appears to be a bad mobo, which is Asus' track record lately for allot of notebooks that come in here not posting. My shop has had to send back several Asus laptops that were either with in the first year or just over a year dead. The Asus engineer who thought this was a good idea and the people who agreed should all be looking for another job. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
Pros: None that I can see other than being able to say its an LED bulb.
Cons: I am tired of seeing companies who make LED light bulbs charge so much for them. LEDs are extremely cheap, yet companies that use them for bulbs and such over price the heck out of them.
Overall Review: Don't buy this overpriced bulb. It should only cost $2 not $17 plus $5 shipping for a light bulb. Really?
Pros: PRICE IS REALLY GOOD FOR THE SPECS.
Cons: NO ETHERNET. THAT IS WHY I TOOK OFF ONE EGG. THAT WOULD HAVE REALLY SEALED THE DEAL FOR ME.
Overall Review: ITS CHEAP AND HAS DECENT SPECS. IF ALL YOU NEED IS A PRINTER FOR ONE COMPUTER THEN THIS IS FOR YOU. IF YOU WANT TO CONNECT TO ROUTER TO SHARE ON NETWORK, LOOK FOR SOMETHING ELSE.
Pros: Price was good for a small LCD panel, if it would have been complete.
Cons: -No speakers!!! = didn't know that till after I bought it. I would not have got it otherwise.
-No Book/instructions. = Good luck figuring out how to hook it up.
-No a/c power. = have to splice something to power it.
Overall Review: If you are looking for a small lcd for any application, get one that has sound and the proper power connectors.
Pros: Price was good. $20 the day I bought mine. Sound is pretty loud.
Cons: Its very hard to put it in the different modes it can do. The most aggravating thing about it all which is why I took an egg away is the loud and very annoying Chinese lady with the British accent.
Cons: 1. No remote control - must be controlled via mouse only.
2. Can only view not control anything from smart phone.
3. No hard drive, but that's OK.
3. No audio. Will not record sound/voices.
Overall Review: This unit is a great price for the features you get. For someone who just needs to watch a shop or even around the 4 corners of your house, this is a decent unit. If you don't care about controlling it with a remote control or if you don't need to record voices or audio then this is OK for you. For a little more you can get a unit that is complete.
Cons: I ordered one, only to find 6 days later that newegg or wherever they get these pcs from didn't ship my computer after I bought it. I had to get newegg to cancel my order. Then I had to buy another one. Tie up even more money. Then when I finally got the computer it sounded like a helicopter taking off. The power supply fan bearings were bad. Really, why didn't anyone hear that loud noisy fan? And if they did, why did they ever think that sound was acceptable? So not to delay the computer to my customer any longer I had to tear up my shop looking for a compatible fan to change the really noisy one they left in there. Total fail. 5 hours later I found a fan and changed the one in the power supply. NO QUALITY CONTROL.
Overall Review: They price is OK, but if you buy one hopefully you get it in less than 7 days and hopefully they techs who fix it up are not idi@ts and let it go out with problems because you may not have what you need or even know how to fix it and you will have to send it back.
Pros: NOTHING is good about this CPU cooler.
Cons: Overpriced Piece of TRASH!
Overall Review: Do not buy. You will waste your money. Fins touch top of my video card. All the screws stripped very easily. Because the screws stripped, I cannot tighten the cooler down very well. CPU is running over 50c. I hope Zalman reads this, because get ready, I will be calling them Monday morning for a refund!!!!!!!!
Cons: not made well, unit fell apart after first use....
Pros: Cheap as heck. Works as advertised.
Cons: Very cheaply made. Cheap plastic. No lanyard or key chain included. NO LED.
Overall Review: So if you are booting something or running a linux distro from this stick and something seems to be hanging, you have no way of knowing whats going on, because PNY thought it would be a good idea to not put a LED anywhere on this stick. NO LED ACTIVITY. Companies like PNY and many others need to stop being so cheap. What does a led for a usb drive really cost these companies, pennies. They should advertise that it has no led so people like me who want one wont waste our money on junk.
Pros: Price for 2011 socket. Takes 64gb ram.
Cons: NO SOUND! The onboard sound does not work! It does not detect speakers. Had to put a sound card because I did not feel like rma-ing it due to the fact that it took me 2 days to build and I didn't want to do it all over again.
Overall Review: Shame on you ASUS. Because Asus employees decided to skip the step where they check the sound before shipping, alot of these from the basic to the deluxe are having the same problem.
Pros: Kudos to Logitech for successfully ripping off alot of customers!
Cons: Price. Needs a/c power. LCD does not stay lit after pc wakes from sleep mode. Did I mention it was extremely overpriced!
Overall Review: Stop letting companies like this take advantage of you all.
Pros: Just thought I'd mention it cause I was under impression when I purchased from New egg that this card would have a 3 year warranty. I just went to Galaxy website and in warranty terms it states on two years from original purchase date.
Cons: ONLY TWO YEAR WARRANTY
Pros: Cheap. For everyone with teens in school this is a decent deal.
Cons: Very low end. Only 2gb ram, when ram right now is dirt cheap. No HDMI. The video chip on the motherboard supports HDMI, they just are too cheap to put a $5 or less connector on it. Too bad.
Overall Review: This unit is good for small children and teens. Not good for adults. Buy an ASUS they come with allot more bells and whistles for around the same price.
Pros: This mouse is one of my favorite mice of all. Uni-handed, 5 buttons, smooth movement, long lasting.
Cons: This mouse has been out for over 10 yrs and the price is still $30. Really??
Overall Review: If this mouse was $9.99 I would buy 10 of them. Somebody needs to come off the price a little!
Pros: Price. $$$ Its so cheap, there is no excuse why somebody still dont own a computer with the deals newegg has all the time.
Cons: No HDMI and No SD card reader. Really guys, how much more would it have costed Lenovo to put those 2 things on this model.
Overall Review: Buy and Asus. Usually same price or close and has all the bells and whistles.
Pros: Cheap! Did I mention cheap? One year accidental warranty.
Cons: No HDMI. Did I mention no HDMI?
Overall Review: How much more expensive would it have been to put a HDMI plug on the mobo? Really? Secondly who in the heck is still using pentium D cpus. Come on MAN!
