This review is from: DELL Inspiron i7559-2512BLK Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 8 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4 GB GDDR5 15.6" 1920 x 1080 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
Pros: Light, powerful, plays most games just fine, very easy to upgrade, very good cooling, backlit keyboard, good sound for a laptop.
Excellent battery life (about 8hrs) when web surfing, watching videos or MS Office stuff. 2.5+ hrs when gaming or anything that will use the GTX960m graphics.
Cons: fans can get a little loud, wifi & Intel HD graphics were buggy at first.
Other Thoughts: Bought this from Dell back in Feb. I then added another 8Gb memory, and put in a Samsung 850 EVO 256Gb M.2 SSD as the boot drive. Also upgraded the wifi card to the Intel 7235AC.
Take this thing everywhere, great laptop for the $$.
Cons: DOA, tested before I installed it into my brother's system, wouldn't power on. EVGA used to be known for quality but have read a lot of problems with their products lately- PSUs, video cards, laptops. Now on my do not buy list.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: UPDATED 9-15-2016- have had this board for 11 months now. Zero problems.
Bought this a couple months ago to do my upgrade build. Has what I need in a motherboard. Onboard audio is very good, was able to ditch the Soundblaster Z from my old build.
Cons: Seemed a bit unstable until I flashed the BIOS to a newer version, since then no issues at all.
Other Thoughts: My build
