Ordering was a breeze and delivery was very fast. I am very satisfied with my order. There are a couple of issues I would like to point out though:
- When I opted for no operating system I was expecting no operating system to be installed. That may not be an issue for most people but it just means more formatting time for me as I always do a low level format just before a clean install. Also, it would have made more sense for the laptop to come with Windows 7 preinstalled because Windows 7 can be upgraded to Windows 8, but the other way around... not so much (unless you know how to use unofficial downgrade tools).
- I'm experiencing some screen tearing in some applications but that is a driver issue. Turning on VSync or forcing it from the Catalyst Control Center sometimes helps. I'm still glad I chose the 7970M over the 680M though.
- The Hotkey application from the manufacturer needs an update or a fix. Using the Fn+Hotkey combo has functionality issues while used inside some applications. For instance, when I use Fn+F6 to turn the volume up, some applications also execute the command assigned to the F6 key.
Even though I had some problems with my order I am gonna give 5 out of 5 stars to Gear4Music. The EQ display on my Roundback Electro-Acoustic bass was busted on delivery so I sent them an e-mail explaining the problem and asking whether they could send me a replacement Pre-Amp. Next day I received an e-mail saying that the replacement part was ready to be delivered, free of charge. Despite this incident I'm really satisfied with my order. Not only Gear4Music is a very customer oriented company, but they also make good looking, good sounding, quality instruments.
