This review is from: MSI GT Series GT72S Dominator ProG Dragon-070 17.3" Intel Core i7 6th Gen 6820HK (2.70 GHz) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 32 GB Memory 256 GB SSD 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Multi-language Gaming Laptop
Pros: This is a great looking laptop with screaming fast specs. MSI kept their utilities useful but unobtrusive except for a monthly small ad popup I have figured out how to squish yet. The sound system is amazing. I have never heard such great sound from a small sound bar like this before. The SteelSeries keyboard is top notch and the LED backlighting is fully configurable from gaudy to off. I prefer a subtle red sweep of lights across the board. Windows 10 is well... Windows 10. I chose to use Tron script to shut down all the data being fed back to Microsoft. All the latest games run at ultra settings and the screen makes my jaw drop now and then. It is that good. I have built PCs since the early 80s and this one is hands down my favorite.
Cons: The plastic screw down points holding the metal cover to the plastic frame are weak. Mine broke after normal usage. It split along the left side of the screen. This was about 6 months after purchase. Newegg sent me to MSI. MSI took 2 weeks total roundtrip time to repair it and I paid shipping one way. If they just replaced the plastic frame it will probably break again.
SteelSeries utility often auto updates and loses connection to this MSI version of their keyboard. I usually uninstall and clean install to get it working.
Other Thoughts: Final edit of this review after 6 months owning it:
My case split due to a bad design with plastic screw down points.
My RAID Boot volume crashed when one of the SSDs failed. I have lost an entire month of use due to RMAs.
MSI is now backpedaling saying that they will not honor their marketing that stated this laptop can have graphics card upgrades for 2 generation. Now it is NOT upgradeable! And they are offering some type of trade-in that will cost me another $1,000! That was the reason I paid extra for this laptop. Checkout the pending class action on the notebookreviews forums.
Just don't buy MSI. Learn from my experience and financial loss.
This review is from: iGo Charge Anywhere Universal Power Extender (Bulk Packaging)
Pros: It didn't catch on fire I guess.
Cons: We bought this for a 2 week European vacation with a couple 8 hour flights. I plugged it in overnight and let my iPhone 4 discharge to 5%. I unplugged it from the wall and plugged it into my iPhone. It died with the iPhone at 70% charged. So you only get a 65% charge out of this $40 device. What exactly is the point of having 2 USB ports? So you can give a 32% charge to 2 devices? Worthless and a waste of money. We also bought a Yoobao that at least gave 1 full charge and has capacity left indicators.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZIPPY BT-637 Black&Silver Bluetooth Wireless Mini Keyboard
Pros: Nice for typing emails on my Ipad. The ability to hotkey between devices is a nice feature but I often found myself having to power cycle the keyboard and/or re-pair.
Cons: I bought this to replace a non-Bluetooth GearHead keyboard. I also bought the "AZiO BTD-V201 Micro Bluetooth Adapter USB 2.0". The distance between the adapter and the keyboard is about 3 feet. We were getting frequent disconnects which often required re-pairing. I tried moving the adapter to different ports, changing batteries, different distances. Nothing helped. So now it gathers dust under the coffee table with infrequent usage for Ipad emails.
Other Thoughts: I'm more satisfied with my non Bluetooth GearHead keyboard.READ FULL REVIEW
