Pros: Easy to install. OS installed without issue. Boot Up & Shut Down are noticeably quicker
Cons: Gave up the ghost after 1 year and 3 months. Unlike traditional Hard Drives there's virtually nothing that can be done to recover contents.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you perform regular backups of EVERYTHING you don't want to lose! Not only family pictures etc. but User Profiles, My Documents, Favorites, Desktop, EMail Address Book, etc. etc.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bad reviews on the after market side lead me to order this OEM from NewEgg ( slightly less $$$ then direct from Lenovo ). Perfect replacement for the dead factory original and the 9cell gives the extended life I'd hoped for.
Cons: High Price but Buy With Confidence
Other Thoughts: This is for a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 that's been collecting dust for a few years now. Factory battery was dead and would not charge. So far it holds it's charge well and charges up in less than the time expected.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plug-N-Play with Windows 7 Pro x64 on GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA motherboard ( N82E16813128594 ). Raised my Windows Experiance Index from 4.3 to 7.3
Solid card with flawless vider rendering at full-screen HD. NVIDIA Control Center exposes many features and aspects for manipulation & tuning. BTW: Default settings work fine for now.
Cons: None: see "Other thoughts"
Other Thoughts: I purchased this board in order to improve video performance on my latest build ( GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-OC LGA motherboard, i5-4570S 2.9G CPU, 8GB G.SKILL DDR3 1600 memory, Kingston V300 Seried SSD boot drive ). Video was the lowest score in Windows Experiance Index with a 4.3 Video now scores 7.3
On first startup with this card Windows loaded Standard VGA single screen and took longer than expected to load drivers for the card. After reboot dual screens were auto detected and driven at proper resolutions. Oddley enough this card takes longer to load the dual screens than the 1/2GB NVIDIA Card it replaces.
This card takes a lot of room in the case as the trailing edge of the fan housing extends past the end of the card by almost an inch. and the height of the fan housing comes close to blocking the next slot on my MB. No problem as the GIGABYTE mb has plenty of slots and I'm running just a couple of add-on cards.
