Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Please Mute BIOS Error Beep Sound Overall quality is good for its price (on discount). My biggest complaint is that super loud beep error sound when I click a wrong button in BIOS drives me crazy. It is the loudest beep sound I’ve ever heard and I can’t even control the volume in BIOS page. PLEASE add a setting in BIOS to mute the error beep noise. It’s insane that there’s no option for this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dgg_Inc. from High pitched fan, touchpad sticky. Very light. Light and high pitched. Good value. So light though plugging in usb power takes two hands as it slides along table. Not quite as expected and can makes whine or whistles.. likely because so thin. Touchpad is cheap and sticky...plastic. fingerprint reader dodgy..50/50 first time. Overall, too many compromises.
