laptop not as advertised on ebay, not a functioning laptop as shipped.
11 June 2013
Summary: The laptop came with no drivers loaded, not a functioning laptop, I then had to put $200.00 into tech support to get up and running. At that point too much invested to return. up side, now a fast laptop, just spent too much.
Cons: Display is great when it decides to turn on. Constantly getting a black screen whenever the laptop has been moved around. I have also had to fix the power jack because of its really poor design--the pin inside broke and it cost ~$160 to repair locally since my warranty had expired. And from what I have read online the pin breaks quite frequently.
Excerpt: I got the G53Sx-NH71 from Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N... for $1200. I wanted a high-power gaming machine that would also allow me to have an SSD as my primary drive with a second HDD slot to put in a spinning drive for data. To that end, this was the best...
Conclusion: When I first received the G53SX, I didn’t think too much into it before cracking open the box. But I sure didn’t expect to fall in love with it either. I’ve tested a fair number of gaming notebooks in this price-range before, and none felt completely satisfactory to me. There were always caveats and I always had to cut down the graphical detail to a point I was never stoked over.
