Pros: Great basic package. This is my 3rd of the same set up from Newegg. Very happy with all of them. I made same upgrades to all of them... new graphics card for DVI monitors, ieee1394 video capture card (host controller card), and Blu-Ray burner. All dropped is very easily... virtually 'plug & play'. Plenty of USP ports, 2 on front make it easy access. I use these units for editing at work with Pinnacle studio 10, 12 & 15 along with AVID studio. Very reliable. P.S. Regular VGA monitor out looks great, really.... No new graphic card is necessary. Two push buttons on sides release the lid and everything is easy to get to. Wireless mouse installed instantly.
Cons: Comes with Windows 7 (I downloaded 10, but uninstalled it because it would not recognize AVID software). You will have to 'check for updates' which will take 3 - 4 hours. Downloading and installing takes about 90 min. Not really a 'con'.... it's just life.(Understand that you are getting the original Windows 7 from years ago, therefore more than150 updates have been made since then. Start the update search right before you go to bed and it will be ready for download/install in the morning.
Overall Review: When investigating add on cards, etc just remember to look for SFF "Small Form Factor". These units are really compacted inside to use every square inch of space. As with all new computers, response is instant! Sweet!
There are better & cheaper
Pros: Compact, Plays DVD-R
Cons: I needed it to repeat a 5 min promo in my store window. It has the repeat feature, however, it displays the REPEAT ICON on the screen the whole time. Who programmed THAT? Nor does it have a counter display on the front of the unit. EVERYTHING is 'on screen display' Total dissapointment. It sits on my shelf doing nothing. My $22 unit does more for less $$$.
Overall Review: Shop around.
Pros: Mouse is comfortable and has no 'delay'. Keyboard is also comfortable and responsive. Doesn't feel 'cheap'. I bought 2 and swapped them out with other 'wired' setup.
Cons: No con's from me.
Overall Review: Very happy with the purchase. Better quality and feel than expected.
Handy device to run my SATA hard drive on an older IDE motherboard
Pros: Adapts easily to both SATA and IDE, also has 'peel and stick' adhesive attached if desired. I'm using mine as a temporary adapter and to reuse later if needed. Relatively quick shipping, coming from a 3rd party shipper. Great price. I'm considering getting another in case these become unavailable.
Cons: no con's from me!
Overall Review: If you need to run a newer hard drive on an older machine, for whatever reason, this is the ticket.
Great Deal.... fast shipping, arrived earlier that promised.
Pros: Surprise... it came with keyboard and mouse. I didn't see that in the ad. Great little unit, I needed to replace a 32bit desktop on it's way out. All my labeling programs and hundreds and hundreds of templates were designed with 32bit programs. What a lifesaver. Very fast and responsive! I also dropped a new 'sff' card in for my DVI monitor. Easy-Peezie! Plenty of USP ports tool
Cons: As with any windows 7, starting from scratch means 90min to 2hrs while it is 'searching for updates' and another 2 hours downloading and installing. Deal with it.
Overall Review: This is really a compact unit, smaller than my 3 referbished Lenovo 'Small Form Factor' units. (all from Newegg) This one can stand on it's side, and the DVD/CD drawer had a feature that the disc will 'snap' into place and won't fall out! Here's a hint for those tired of Microsoft nagging you to get windows 10. Remove update KB3035583. That's the culprit causing that annoying pop up. Enjoy!
Item showed up early, well packed w/power supply. Laptop fired up quickly and works just fine.
Minimal wear on space bar from use, good screen, accepted wireless mouse no problem. Does the job I needed it to do. CD / DVD burner works just fine also... which is why I bought this particular unit.
Laptop in great shape!
Laptop arrived early, in almost pristine condition. slight shinny spot on space bar from previous user. New windows 10 ready for my initial setup. Works great, optical drive seems reliable. Good packaging and arrived safely from across the U.S. Very happy with purchase.
