Chances are you know a bit about computers if youve made your way through all of the laptop options to this guy. If you are new to buying computers, I will break down some of the specs, what they mean, and what I feel their value is. If not, scroll to the end for my final thoughts.For the new guys, heres the breakdown:SCREEN: 144hz IPS 1080p display. 144hz means you get 144 frames per second. Most laptop screens are going to get 60hz or nicer ones get 120hz. 144hz is fast. IPS displays are good for wide viewing angles and color production. I am surprised to see a 144hz IPS display on a gaming laptop because in the past, IPS were only used for graphic design. 1080p is Full HD, and is more than adequate for gaming on a 15 inch screen. 4k is kind of overkill especially for a budget. A 27inch 144hz IPS 1080p display goes for up to $300. I would estimate the value of this laptops display at ~$150GRAPHICS: Nvidia gtx1060. I wouldnt buy a laptop without a graphics card, and it has to be NVidia. The 1060 is a great value and is perfectly capable of handling games at 1080p. The 1070 and 1080 are more for 4k gaming and make them kind of overkill and not as budget friendly. The 1060 should be able to connect to a 4k tv and play games in 4k, but they would probably look better in higher settings in 1080p on that same 4k tv. A desktop gtx 1060 still goes for about $300.CPU: Intel i7-8750h. This is a beast. 6 cores with hyperthreading. It supports ultra HD resolutions without a graphics card. I wont bore you with all of the details about how beastly this is. Bottom line, it is a top of the line CPU. the desktops i7-8700 goes for just over $300.aRAM: 16GB of ddr4 should suffice for just about anything. Leave a hundred screens open on your browser and play games while using photoshop. Who cares right?? You could get more but it would be overkill for a budget gaming machine. This much ram for a laptop sells for around $150Storage: 256gb M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. A lot of letters right? This is probably the fastest type of drive in the consumer market. Rather than a giant block in your laptop, this is a small card that goes in the motherboard. It is fast!!! No more PTSD every time you restart your computer. 256GB is enough for windows and several large programs like photoshop. I dont recommend this as a storage drive, only as an operating system/large program drive. Thats where the problem lies. This is the only drive in the laptop. You can easily install a second drive in the bay on the bottom of the laptop. It takes 3 minutes. I would recommend a hard drive from western digital.The installed 256gb m.2 drive goes for $120.However, adding another drive adds $100, upping the price of the laptop to $1300 (its currently at $1200)Bells and whistles:1 USB 3.1(type c), 1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, 1 HDMI 2.0, SD Card reader. (no thundercat port)HIgher end laptops have more bells and whistles like extra ports and fun other things. This comes with the basics, and most people wont need more than that.Keyboard: red backlight, side numpad. Cant change the colors. Kind of basic keyboard. This saves on overall cost of the laptop and its a bell or whistle I can live without.FINAL THOUGHTS:Adding up the assumed monetary value of the Display ($150), GPU($300), CPU($300), RAM($150), and Storage($120), We have a base value of $1020. I cant easily estimate the motherboard, battery, laptop shell, power cord, and other small parts, but assuming all those other parts add up to ~$300, that makes the value of this laptop around $1300. It sells for $1200 so it is a good value.Biggest selling point in price range: Other similarly priced laptops offer similar specs, but not many can boast of having that 144hz IPS display. Some competitors are at 120hz which isnt anything to scoff at. The M.2 NVMe is a must if you are considering other competitors. Other than that, most laptops in this pool offer the same general specs (CPU, GPU, RAM)CONCERNS:Audio: Audio kind of sucks. If you hold the speakers towards you, they sound fine, but they arent even close to ear level so all the sound is getting muffled by your lap. I usually use my headphones, but there are also a lot of bluetooth speaker options nowadays.Materials: The case is solid. Parts of it are metal and other parts are plastic. Oils from your fingers show up very well all over the laptop. Wear vinyl gloves when playing games (jk dont). You may have to clean it often.Overheating: All gaming laptops will get hot. In fact most other laptops I considered buying were criticized heavily for getting too darn hot. The ones that werent criticized for that were criticized for breaking at the hinges. I purchased this one because it was reviewed as being sturdy and cooler than other gaming laptops. I havent had any specific problems with this laptop, but others have suggested boosting the fan if in a hardcore gaming session. Invest in a cooling pad. It should be very hard to overheat this laptop to the point of failure. Im not going to post a super long review, just what I cared about, what this laptop is, and what it isnt.Pro: Insane performance per dollar. Maxing out stuff like Diablo 3, WoW, Overwatch, DOOM, Various Source engine games (TF2, Halflife 2, black mesa, etc) will be butter smooth. This is a near-desktop replacement device.Pro: One of the best non mechanical keyboards. Great travel distance and key responsivenessPro: Lighter than I expected. Its not an ultra-thin notebook, but very travel friendly.Pro: Premium FeelPro: Gorgeous Display. Its a 144 Hz IPS display. Its gorgeous. There is some lightbleed when displaying almost all black screens, but thats expected. Not going to count that as a con.Con: It can get warm, to the point of discomfort near the WSAD keys, which I assume the GPU is located internally. I turned on the coolboost feature or whatever its called and this helped.Con: Bloatware. Took about 5 minutes to remove, but nobody likes bloatware.Con: Drivers out of box are a joke. My network performance was horrible until several driver installs and windows updates completed. Drivers are extremely out of date (8+ months old) out of box.Neutral: Design language is typical angsty 14 year old, red and black, stark angles, and angry looking PREDATOR logos. I personally dont care, some people might not like the loud looks.Neutral: PredatorSense software: It lets you slightly OC the 1060, which I did. It also lets you set fan curves. Theres plenty of third party software that does all this already but its nice of them to try.Neutral : 2 year limited warranty: I hope I dont need it.Neutral: NO Mechanical storage hard disk: It only has a 256gig NVME. Not a big deal because I use this exclusively for a handful of games to play while at work, but this might be a turn off for some.Overall, I am happy with this having spent $1200. I would not pay a cent more, but most laptops in this tier DO cost 1400+. If you want something to play games on the go, are cheap, but demand decent quality, there is your go-to laptop. Not sure whether the thermal paste is badly applied, or this laptop just sucks. But it has serious issues with overheating. I was consistently hitting temps of 90C+ and hit spikes of 98C quite a few times. The laptop shut down twice because it maxed at 100C. This is happening with the fan on MAX and the GPU set to NORMAL, not even overclocking.However, based on reading other reviews, I believe this issue is not consistent with this item, it is a manufacturing flaw, not a design problem. This will happen to you SOMETIMES if you buy this laptop. This is not a risk Im willing to take, Im returning it for a different laptop which will not have cooling issues.This laptop, other than its (serious) cooling issues, was a great laptop and ran games well (for the first hour or so).*EDIT: I forgot to add, the left control key worked about half the time, since day 1 of buying the laptop. I had to press it really hard to get it to work right. **

UpdateGreat customer service from the company. Quick responses and they are willing to do whatever is necessary to fix production. Thats enough for me.Got this charger because it was sleek and looked cool. Unfortunately only one of the two charging ports working. Ive tried swapping the controllers around and swapped power cables, but still no luck. The lights both work, but the second charging port doesnt charge, and the light just stays green. Would still recommend this product. I assume not all of them are like this. My young kids jacked up the micro USB charging ports on the front of the controllers. This charging station was a life saver. The charging ports are much more durable, easier for them to seat to charge, and has the red/green indicator for charging. This was an excellent investment from keeping me having to go buy new PS4 controllers due to the micro USB ports breaking. I highly recommend this above using the standard charging ports. Not only does this dock work awesome, its looks pretty cool next to my PS4! It is very convenient and it is an accessory that I have been missing out on. I really love that it charges using the bottom headphone ext port, rather than struggling to use the micro USB port at the top. I highly recommend this dual charging dock for those looking for a sleek looking space saver! Got this as a present from my gf and let me just tell u she hit a nail on the head. Its sleek, looks very well made, the indicator is awesome, installing the controller to charge is easy and dont have to fight it like other chargers. also very compact, saves space on my small desk. very glad she got me this because i would of went with something more expensive, stupid me because this little guy handles its job extremely well. do recommend it I purchased this 4 months ago and it works great to charge my controllers. It charges from the front of the controller and doesnt use the micro USB on the back. The main problem I run into with these types of chargers is it tends to break the micro USB but because youre using the port on the front it works allot better-putting the controllers into the base station. So much better than a cable. And it looks cool. Apparently dimming the lights on your controller will make the battery last alot longer. But I dont have that problem Because Im to busy with life to play that long. Life aint about video games. Go out and do something Brilliant little gadget for a great price and does the job! Before my kids were hooking their remote control up to the actual PS4 which meant they were really close to the TV but now having this little gadget life is so much easier. It didnt come with the actual plug but it did come with the cable so I used a plug I already had and have it plugged into the wall so the remotes can charge 24/7. I would highly recommend this as its small and takes up no space. I bought this for my DualShock 4 controllers that are connected via Bluetooth to my Steam PC rig. For some reason, I have inconsistent results when attempting to charge them via microUSB cable, so I found I was having to keep them connected to a cable in order to use them. That is, until I found this handy charging station! Controllers can now charge in a reasonable amount of time (Im usually never in a hurry and tend to rotate controllers). No more empty batteries!

My knee pain has decreased by 75%. The location is the medial collateral ligament and meniscus. I do have arthritis in the left knee. I cannot tolerate NSAIDS. I dont take any prescribed/ controlled meds. Sharp pain chronically occurred while simply changing position when sitting in a chair, crossing my legs at the ankles and shifting that position. Or occurring while moving my leg position in bed at night. Stairs were the original challenge with sharp sudden pain causing me to catch my breath not to cry out and hiking down hill was excruciating. The day time pain is almost forgotten, and the evening is mild, even stairs! I only use one scoop every AM in my coffee. WOW, great product and will continue to buy it. I have advised a trial to a few of my adult patients. I have tried a lot of different collagens and the results of this particular brand are far above what I have seen from other collagens brands Ive tried. I will say it doesnt mix as well in cold water as some brands I have tried, but on the other hand, when I switched to putting it in coffee or a smoothie from trying it in my cold lemon water it was totally fine no issues whatsoever.The difference I have seen using this brand has been nothing short of amazing.Ive noticed a huge improvement in my hair and nails.I bought this collagen looking for results and that is what I got. Love these collagen peptides! They have added enzymes which make them 5X more absorbable in the body..which means your not throwing money down the drain. There is also no flavor. Ive tried quite a few different collagen peptides and some (even though say unflavored) have a slight flavor. Ive also been learning more about collagen and its health benefits like how it helps with muscle growth and my husband has even mentioned that it has been helping his digestive issues. I add it daily to my pre-workout drink and I also love adding it to my overnight oats, chocolate avocado protein pudding and my BCAAs. Its so easy to use and the older we get the more we need it. This product is amazing. I use it every morning in my coffee. I cant taste any difference nor in texture. I can tell that after I run my joints arent as achey as they have been so this is a plus. I recommend this for anyone. Ive been using various collagen peptides for a long time now, this one stands at as the best collagen peptide product I have used.Dont expect overnight results and you wont be disappointed. It took about 2 weeks of daily use for me to notice the below benefits.Hair is less coarse, brittle and dry. Finding that my hair is growing thicker, faster and appears fuller. Made a huge difference with my leaky gut, I know sounds gross, but its a real problem and this has absolutely helped. Im having much less gas, bloating and overall abdominal pain. I find myself staying hungry and not needing to eat constantly (This was a problem with my leaky guy, loss of nutrients. I take this collagen in the morning with some ghee butter and MCT Oil and Ihave noticed Im feeling more clear-headed, full for several hours and dont get the afternoon headache crash I have suffered for years.I always heard collagen helped with leaky gut, but until trying this brand had never really experienced the true benefits.Acne and skin is clearing up and looking like my younger self again!HANDS DOWN THE BEST COLLAGEN ON THE MARKET! I will be a customer for life! I have tried many different companies collagen products. Not seeing or noticing much of a difference till now. I believe the search is over. Physicians choice has a product that seems to be working for me. My skin feels softer and smoother than it has been for many years now. Id never go without foundation make up, now I only use mascara. This is big for me. Im in my late forties so to notice such a big difference just in my skin alone and so quick, this is great. My stomach issues has finally taken the back burner. Havent had any issue for the first time in 4 years. Wish I knew that this was what my body was screaming for.Collagen peptides has no taste and not noticing any chaulkyness. I mix it with grapejuice, can not tell at all. I will be telling my family and friends about this product! I can already see a difference in my hair and nails. I absolutely love this product. Strengthened my nails, my skin cleared and my hair got stronger within two weeks of using this collagen. Mixed with vitamin C produces faster absorption, hence faster results. I take this collagen mixed with water and vitamin c powder in the morning or evening.
