DELL Laptop (Dell Factory Refurbished) Latitude E6430 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3320M (2.60 GHz) 8 GB Memory 128 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4000 14.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks new. Battery lasts 3-4 hours. 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports. Unlike a E6330, provides a full-size HDMI port.

Cons: It looks like someone used a pen to draw a 1/4" line on the screen and damaged the pixels below the surface. I used the laptop for two hours before noticing it ... so the defect is subtle and minor.

Other Thoughts: According to the asset tag, the laptop was built in April 2013.

This particular computer had:
- nVidia NVS 5200M (a little stronger than the i5's 4000 HD integrated graphics)
- backlit keyboard
- no bluetooth
- no fingerprint reader. It looks like the physical reader is there. But if it's there doesn't provide a driver for it.
- Samsung SSD PM830 128 GB; here are the CrystalDiskMark results:
seq 458, 302
512k 320, 259

5 out of 5 eggs Good price for good performance 06/14/2014

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast enough. Compare its write/read performance (using CrystalDiskMark) to a couple of other models:

- Crucial M500 240 GB SSD (2.4 GHz G530 Celeron - Sandy Bridge)
seq 477, 280
512k 439, 284
4k 26, 75
4kqd32 339, 255

- Samsung SM841 128 GB SSD (2.6/3.3 GHz Core i5 - Haswell)
seq 432, 378
512k 213, 317
4k 23, 41
4kqd32 394, 299

- Kingston v300 120 GB SSD (2.4 GHz G530 Celeron - Sandy Bridge)
seq 178, 131
512k 168, 130
4k 19, 80
4kqd32 74, 127

Cons: The M550 and Samsung 840 Pro models are faster, but premium priced.

TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent range, speed, and up time. I see five bar signal strength and 45 mps data rate in a room four walls and 40 feet away from the router. It delivers 10 mbs greater speed than my ASUS RT-N16.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I tried this router because I got excellent performance from TP-Link's wireless adapters (the TL-WN822N model is especially good) and I saw great reviews for it from customers for several online stores.
