Pros: I installed this a few years back now after getting so sick of the CPU's stock cooler fan raging away at 70+ db all the time and my processor still seeing temps up over 50c when under a little load. This installed easily albeit some difficulties with my case being less than accommodating. I immediately saw my idle temps around 30c just above room temp and even under extreme load it's peaked at less than 40c all while being incredibly quiet. It's still going strong now even a few years later.
Cons: When I first got this I believe it was a new product and the drivers for it were still basically non existent so controlling it properly initially was a bit of a struggle but Corsair came out with the proper drivers and programming I needed pretty quick so no real complaints.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is my first laptop I've ever owned as I've always built desktops, but the need for a good laptop finally overcame me. I didn't want to spend a fortune but wanted something that was still powerful enough to have fun with. This one definitely meets that. Strong processor that doesn't get too crazy hot, although it does eat at the battery pretty good when not plugged in. Screen is 1080p and looks great, and overall even being a "B grade" the whole laptop is in great condition. Very few nicks and bumps in the chassis and everything works as it should.
Cons: Only con to this laptop was the Chinese generic power adaptor it comes with, but it works and is at oem spec for voltage and amperage so hardly worth actually complaining about.
Other Thoughts: My particular laptop ended up coming with a 3740qm processor in it which is a slightly faster version of the 3720 (nice surprise bonus!) as well as a discrete amd graphics setup that well outperforms the Intel hd 4000 integrated I had read these usually come with. Good job on the bonuses newegg!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great, no fluctuations or let downs so far and It's been over 6 months. Fan is wicked quiet and is only barely audible. Has plenty of power to feed everything I've thrown at it so far. Also the blue leds match the rest of my case leds almost perfectly :) Modular cables worked great as they should as well, plenty of plug ins.
Cons: None as of yetREAD FULL REVIEW
