Pros: Very fast drive for cost per gigabyte. I have this as both a backup to my SSD and run all my steam games from it. Its faster than a 7200 rpm 1tb and has tons of storage. I have 3 of these in my personal machines and built one for a friend as a secondary to his SSD
Cons: So far so good. Bought my first drive 2+ years ago.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP LA2205WG 1680 x 1050 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor-Pivot, Swivel & Height Adjustable
Pros: I bought 2 of these monitors. Got one with some reservation but after using it I was surprised at how good it looked and how well it performed. Paid $75 and it was well worth that price. They come with a power cable and a VGA to VGA cable.
Cons: The first one had some lines running down the screen and it was very annoying and I almost sent it back. Then I tried a DVI to VGA cable I had lying around and it fixed the problem. I'm not sure if its the cable or my GPU but it was fixed by changing the cable. The second I used the same type of cable from the get go so not sure if it has the same problem.
Other Thoughts: For $75 shipped I have no complaints. Its only 1680x1050 but its a 22" wide screen monitor that displays great and all buttons work and no apparent damage to the bezel like some users have stated.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The laptop is very thin and pleasant to look at. It has potential to perform well in games due to the A10 7300 APU. Performs snappy in windows 8.1
Cons: The A10 never hits its rated specs (1.9ghz base and 3.2 ghz turbo). During a game of League of Legends it runs at 1400 mhz. Temps per hwmonitor are 95 cel at idle on windows 8.1 desktop so this is most likely why it does not turbo to the speeds advertised. Newegg wants $68 to RMA a product that does not remotely meet the advertised specs.
Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this laptop. The A10 7300 is a nice APU that should be very desirable in a mobile platform. I'm not sure why this Lenovo performs so poorly but it runs 95 cel in windows. I could probably open it up and reapply thermal paste and drop temps so it will turbo. But i'm not opening it to risk voiding the warranty when I can send it back and get a pc that performs closer to its rated spec.READ FULL REVIEW
