Another one with occasional screen errors

Jesse W., Newegg
4 July 2011
  • Summary: I'll try to attached a video showing the screen problem I get when it locks up... which looks a little worse in person than in the video (screen unreadable).
  • Pros: Fast laptop. Especially with new 128 GB Plextor SSD (as boot/OS disk) and +4GB RAM (8GB total now; nice of them to leave an empty slot). Speakers sound way better than on my previous Acer laptop.
  • Cons: Minor: It's bigger than I imagined it would be (1st 17" laptop; not really a con, but it's less portable than my last 14" one).

Should have a much better screen

Skypilot, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: Please note that despite the HD+ claim the screen on this machine lets everything else down. It is 17.3" in size but the resolution is ONLY 1600 x 900 - not worth buying if you want a large desktop or the best HD movie experience.

Probably no SATA bug (retraction)

I. Wilcox, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: I originally said in this review that "this laptop's optical drive bay --- not the Blu-Ray drive shipped in it, but the bay --- is likely to fail (outside the warranty period) due to an Intel design flaw" (the infamous Sandy Bridge SATA problem).

  • Excerpt: Самое ужасное, что может случиться с компьютером - застучали винты.
  • Pros: Процессор Core i7 2670QM, легкий, два HDD, неплохой звук для небрендовой акустики.
  • Cons: Оперативка 4 + 2 (почему бы не 4 + 4???) отвратительное качество штатных HDD

  • Excerpt: Самое ужасное, что может случиться с компьютером - застучали винты. Не прошло и 1,5 месяца эксплуатации, застучал головками второй винт, сильно и слышно, потом и первый. На днях второй винт просто отвалился из системы - исчез и все. Появился после третьей перезагрузки.
  • Pros: Процессор Core i7 2670QM, ; легкий, два HDD, неплохой звук для небрендовой акустики.
