Pros: I really think this is one of my favorite products I have bought in a while. The build quality is impressive for such an affordable machine. I have read many pro reviews that say the screen isn't great. I feel like this screen is pretty nice. I stare at my desktop screen all day everyday since I am a developer and I think that this screen, full 1080, is very nice. The brightness seems just fine to me. The speakers are another upside to this laptop. They are loud and do not get fuzzy when the volume is turned up high. The keyboard is very acceptable and the track pad is easily one of the best I have ever used. I have not ever accidentally moved the cursor while typing and the whole pad clicks so there is nowhere you cannot click. I thought the absence of a right mouse button would be a 'con' but actually just clicking with two fingers instead of one for a right mouse click is very intuitive and I have adopted it without any problems. Battery life is also amazing. Simple browsing (no streaming of audio or video) will result in a 9-10 hour battery life. I use a lot of chrome 'Remote Desktop' to access my desktop and I still get about 7 hours out of the battery. Overall this laptop is way better than I expected and I am very happy.
Cons: The only con I have is that there is no 'Hardwire' option for internet. Wireless only. Which isn't a big deal but sometimes I would like to plug it in.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: netTALK DUO VOIP Telephone free USA and Canada Calling
Pros: Easy to set up. I just plugged it in and followed the included instructions and I had a working phone in less than 15 minutes. I have also never had one problem with this phone line not working. There is no drag or echo. Keep in mind I have google fiber internet so it is very fast but the line is clear and has no problems.
Other Thoughts: I am very glad I made this purchase for my 10 year old. She had been wanting a cell phone but I just don't see the need for her to have one. This was a good compromise, and she really like it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel ML04B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: Very sleek and professional looking on the outside. I like the included, magnetic, dust screen for the topside of the case.
Cons: Cable management is a bit of a nightmare. Although this is a smaller box so as size goes down cable management gets tougher.
Other Thoughts: I really love this box. If you look at the inside it is a bit ugly since everything is a tight fit, cables are everywhere lol. I ended taking out one of the hard drive mounts since I am only using one drive. This freed up some extra space for me to kind of congregate all of my wiring. Lucky for me, I am the only person that would ever look at the inside of the box. Everyone else is very impressed at the sleek appearance of it. Overall a very nice enclosure for the money. If I made another HTPC I would buy this same enclosure to put it in for sure.READ FULL REVIEW
