5 out of 5 eggs The speed! THE SCREEN! 08/04/2013

This review is from: NVIDIA SHIELD Portable

Pros: Tegra 4... the performance is amazing! Very fluid with zero lag.
Battery lasts a long, LONG time!
Sound quality from the speakers is borderline unbelievable.. they sound like big speakers but they aren't!
The controller feels a LOT like an XBox controller. Very tactile.
It doesn't feel cheap. It feels like it would last even under abusive conditions.
SD card slot (YAY!)
Very glad to see it has the Play Store. So tired of Android devices with generic app stores!

Cons: It's a TINY bit on the heavy side, but the battery life is worth the extra weight.
No other cons.

Other Thoughts: If you want it and have the money, get it! You won't be unhappy. Many people like to complain about the price, but in theory, it's worth it. People don't seem to complain about paying over $500 for certain "i" tablet devices, and they don't have a built in controller or the Tegra 4!

5 out of 5 eggs WOW! Fastest SSD I've ever used! 07/15/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD128BW

Pros: Easy to setup
Samsung Quality & Reliability
VERY fast, boots Windows 7 Ultimate x64 in under 10 seconds!
5 year Warranty!

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Very fast drive. I can't believe how fluid Windows 7 runs with it. The boot times are crazy fast, and of course.... it's a Samsung!

This SSD replaced a 500GB 5400rpm SATA II drive that was an OEM drive in an SATA III laptop (really?). The 500GB drive is now in an external enclosure as a storage drive.

Lenovo Essential G580 (59359084) Intel Core i5 3230M(2.60GHz) 15.6

Pros: -Attractive

-Solid with minimal flex, although it's not a ThinkPad, it's solid.

-Nice, tactile keyboard

-Powerful i5 3230m

-Stays fairly cool for a laptop

-Nice 720p webcam

-Lenovo quality

Cons: -Windows 8 is odd. It takes getting used to. I ended up buying a start menu program to get the start menu back. It's not too bad once you get the start menu program installed.

-Not sure why Lenovo installed an SATA II drive in a computer with SATA III capability. I assume it's based on keeping the cost of assembly low.

-WAY too many gestures setup on the trackpad from the factory. I disabled all of them to use the simple point and click methods. Not a big fan of all the gestures.
