This review is from: DELL Inspiron i7559-5012GRY Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.60 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 8 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4 GB GDDR5 15.6" 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 Touchscreen Windows 10 Home 64-Bit
Pros: Speakers sound good when working
Good specs / $
Cons: Many, many cons.
Display - I bought 4k display. This 4k display is uglier than many 1080p screens.
Colors are way off and not in a fixable way.
Graphics - I immediately got 'display driver' bugs and flashing black screens.
Construction - Feels very cheap for what looked like a high end laptop. Stick with something metal.
Speakers - Sound was making an explosion sound every 30 seconds or so after little use. Bugged up.
HHD - Very slow harddrive. Entire computer has slowed to a crawl while doing little more than online browsing + a system scan.
Memory - Does not come with DDR 4 as most other new Skylake Laptops
Weight - This laptop is a dinosaur in the era of XPS / Apple. Which is fine - but not for $1000.00
Network - Wireless adapter randomly turned off?
One or two of these problems I would try to fix myself.
But if a brand new laptop comes with 8 problems, better RMA it.
I want to RMA. I will give it one more day since it is Saturday anyway.
Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this laptop because XPS 15 by DELL isn't shipping anytime soon.
I will change my review if my opinion changes.
But my first thought is that this is a $500.00 laptop. DO NOT upgrade the internals because it will still feel like a $500.00 laptop.
If you're stuck at $500.00 it's a reasonable choice. At $1,000.00 get a XPS.
This review is from: ASUS MG279Q Black 27" IPS 144Hz 4ms Adaptive-Sync (Free Sync) WQHD LED Gaming Monitor, 2560X1440(2K),W/ Asus Excusive GamePlus and Flicker free Technology, Pivot&Height Adjustment, Built-in speakers
Pros: IPS, Freesync, 144hz, 1440p
Cons: 35hz-90hz for Freesync
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from 1080p 120hz. Worth it.
NO dead pixels.
Pros: Solid boards. Bought with two older APU's (Trinity)
No problems what so ever.
Easy and Solid.
Cons: None - these are micro. Make sure you do not need more than 2 ram slots.
Other Thoughts: I did not try to over clock processor and ram I ran at rated speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
