Pros: Lightweight but sturdy enough. The black "leather" with the wood has a nice contrast. The ottoman is a great addition and it can also be used to sit on, handy for putting on socks and shoes. Pretty comfortable out-of-the-box a bit firm, which is really a good thing but it will break in with use. Reclines pretty far, not quite flat but flat enough to fall asleep watchin' the pixels late at night. Can also double as an office chair. Not hard to put together, especially if you have put things together before and have the proper tools. Good tools will make for a quicker assembly then frustration and damage potential is greatly reduced.
Cons: Lightweight [but still sturdy enough ;) ], pricing is a bit high; but what isn't these days. I'm 6 foot and wish the chair back was at least 4 inches taller. Top of the chair comes only to upper neck height, so comfort level is decreased and fatigue is increased a bit, especially when reclining, no support for the noggin and gives me a neck pain and headache if I sit too long. But it is still not a deal-breaker.
Other Thoughts: I purchased from a big nationwide furniture store so I could try it before buying it. Even with the cons, I considered it not bad at all and fit what I was looking for. The chair has good feel and comfort. I knew the deltas before purchasing so I decided I can live with itREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H
Pros: Moves CFM like crazy, keeps sensitive and heat generating component temps under control. Don't need a water cooler with these turbines!
Cons: None. They are loud as 'ell, but that is the byproduct of super speed fans with massive air cooling capabilities. Why anyone would buy these and put them on a fan controller is beyond me. These are definitely for Target State performance.
Other Thoughts: I love these. I have two in particular in an overclocked server running only on air, just two is almost deafening, but these have been non-stop operational at full-speed since December 2003 and still going very strong and maintain original RPM specs, no bearing noise and no signs of them about to give up the magic smoke. Fantastic!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast, everything works, great display/graphics, decent battery life, love the keyboard lighting, nice looks (even the camo motif), superb deal for the performance to cost ratio. Burned it in with various stress testing apps and it passed very well. Runs games smoothly.
Cons: The screen is not matte and is fairly glossy making it a mirror. Any back-light that you may prefer causes reflections that are distracting. The "chroming" of the plastic at the top of the display around the camera also reflects any back-lighting and the glossy black plastic around the display reflect into your eyes. Nit pick's is all...still a great deal.
Other Thoughts: The problem with mine is a very thin snaky scratch @7" long across the display, almost like a tiny needle scratch. I'm sure this was why mine was returned. But when the laptop is turned on it is not noticeable, only in dark screen situations can you see it. All these refurbs will have different issues, of course. I was very apprehensive about buying a recondition/refurb, but this is an outstanding buy. I am VERY happy with this purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
