MSI 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Build quality seems quite nice. Screen is fantastic, good color, bright, and glare free. (I prefer matted screens). It's plenty fast and powerful enough for what I do, mostly using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, with some light gaming thrown in at times. (Borderlands 2 Mostly) The on board speakers sound just fine and are plenty loud. Wireless performance is quite good. The Steel Series keyboard is quite good and the textured trackpad doesn't bother me at all despite other's reviews to the contrary. Overall finish is excellent and does not show fingerprints much at all. Removal of bottom panel to access memory and hard drive couldn't be easier, though you may want to see the other thoughts below.

Cons: Thus far, I can honestly say I have no real cons.

Other Thoughts: Some have noted that there is a "Warranty void if tampered with" decal covering one of the holes on the HDD and Memory access panel. I've contacted MSI and was promptly greeted with an actual human. He assured me that "This will not void your warranty, provided you don't break anything while you're in there". I asked that he email that statement to me to serve as a written record. He complied. I've upgraded the hard drive to a Samsung Evo SSD, and added one more 8gb stick of RAM. The laptop now preforms even better.

GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z97X-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This board is laid out quite nicely. Audio hardware is fantastic, AKG sound amazing driven by the high quality on board op amp. It looks stunning. Plenty of 4 pin fan headers. Included Creative software is actually quite good. Installation a breeze, no hiccups.

Cons: My only con comes from the board being a small bit more narrow than most other ATX boards. This means the front 2' of board fall short of risers and mounts in most cases, just hanging out there. Not enough for me to deduct any eggs, just a little disconcerting to me.

Other Thoughts: Purchased from Am****n, not Newegg. Running i7-4770k, G.Skill Sniper 1866 RAM, Gigabyte 660 Ti's in SLI, Crucial SSDs,

[Verico Grip] Micro USB sync & charge cable-Data transfer/power charging cable for most smartphones in the market.<Red and Black>
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cable looks fantastic, both ends fit snugly, data transfer works as it should, high current charging takes place without issue.

Cons: None, thus far.

Other Thoughts: I use these cables primarily to charge my Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone and Nexus 10 tablet. I like their length for use on the go with my Anker Astro charger which charges at 2.1 amps. these cables allow my Nexus 10 to charge at a much faster rate the most of my other micro usb cables.
