Pros: Fast, good keyboard, not overly loaded with bloatware, runs fairly cool while gaming.
Cons: Poorly constructed for a 1000.00 laptop. The LCD cover feels solid, but the rest of the machine feels fragile. Nvidia geforce experience does not seem to want to work on this machine. Also, I have noticed there is quite a bit of lag with the network card and wifi adapter. Overall, it's an ok machine, but my expectations were higher for the coin I dropped on it. I'm knocking off 2 eggs for the construction of the machine and 1 egg for the configuration issues right out of the box.
Other Thoughts: I think Asus could have put a bit more effort into the construction of this laptop. I have had 2 other Asus laptops in the past and they always had a sold feel to them. The other laptops I had were not gaming laptops and were sub 1000.00. Dropping a grand on a laptop, I feel that one should expect a solid feel and should have a flawless configuration right out of the box. I have been screwing around with the Nvidia geforce experience program for over a month now and it just freezes. There have been 2 updates to that program and it just refuses to work properly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Decent price at Newegg, A lot faster than a standard WD cloud. Very easy to set up and use. I use this NAS for a small home office and amateur photography. I purchased this drive to replace a 2 year old WD mycloud 2tb NAS. I didn't really need extra space, but as I have been moving a lot more larger files, I needed speed. The EX2100 is a lot faster than a standard WD cloud. As far as space goes, this unit is easy to upgrade simply by paring up two larger drives.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: LOVE IT!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, lots of options and support for future proofing. Excellet Asus quality system board.
Cons: The only con I can point out is the intel lan they decided to use. I find it to be a bit sluggish at times. Very minor, if at all. Other than that, this board rocks! I have used Asus boards for years now and I am still a big fan.READ FULL REVIEW
