  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Worked out of the box but... 08/11/2016

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 4G

Pros: Multiple video threads. Supports up to 4 monitors.

Cons: 3 of the outputs are a style that I don't have cables for.

Other Thoughts: There is only 1 output of the style I need. (HDMI) That port recently stopped working.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Basic Specs are nice. i7 and the graphics are good. The price was right.

Cons: Others have talked about how fast the rubber bumpers fall off the bottom. They literally fell off as I took it out of the package. I checked and there was glue but it looked like it had already fallen off and had hair and stuff stuck to it and then was put back in so when I pulled it out it fell off. That is not new condition.

The crazy thing is that there are not screws under them, so you would just expect a really good adhesive. Maybe Acer would like to send me replacements to customers with this issue or start including replacements with the laptop, the way Samsung includes new tips for the stylus with their Galaxy Note Phone series.

Bloatware! Just soooo much bloatware.

The hard drive is a platter. There is only space for one drive so, it makes sense to use a large drive but the slowness is unacceptable. As many others have, I am cloning to SSD. That isn't the largest issue and it seems that does keep the price down.

That brings me to the next issue, you literally have to take every screw out of the bottom in order to open the case. The keyboard comes up and off instead of the bottom piece coming off, which is unusual. I have not found a video that actually looks like the model I got.

Other Thoughts: Acer should totally sell the base model of laptops and then provide accessories separately. I would but a back-lit keyboard at this point because it would be easy to put on. Maybe they do. I will check this before I assemble again because I know that the companies troll these reviews. (Like a fisherman, not a bridge troll)

5 out of 5 eggs Poor Resolution Pics 07/08/2015

This review is from: Minecraft Bundle Foam Diamond Sword & Pickaxe

Pros: Apparently this is an item from a video game. Kind of cool.

Cons: The resolution on the pictures of this item are so poor I cannot tell what the quality of the product is. I still gave it 5 stars because it isn't the products fault, but the problem is that even in person the resolution is very poor. I'm not sure what is going on here but apparently, if you run into some poor resolution blocks you can smash them with this item.

I have friends who have a whole lot of these and they offered to share so I decided not to buy this.

I've heard that you need this item to ultimately train a horse. Can anyone verify that?

Other Thoughts: I hope that someone finds what I have said useful. Also, when I was a kid, I would not have been bothered by this low resolution.
