Substantially longer runtime than the standard battery that came with my laptop. Since the battery is higher capacity than the stock battery, it is physically larger than the stock battery; to accommodate the larger size, the battery extends downward and therefore lifts the back of the laptop up a bit - basically, it gives the same effect as extending the rear feet of a desktop keyboard. For me, the larger physical size of this battery is a small price to pay for the much longer runtime that I get compared to the stock battery. With the stock battery, I was constantly looking for an outlet so I could plug-in, because of its meager runtime. So far, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.
It's a battery. It adds a little tilt to the laptop since it's bigger than the OEM battery, which is nice when typing.
Update: Sep 2016 - This battery has been only charging to about 80% for a few months. At first I thought it was that I had the laptop set to not charge to more than that, but when I replaced the battery because one of my children broke the latching tabs I noticed that the new battery is charging to 100%.
I'm running a RC-520 with a SSD so I was still getting pretty good runtime even at 80%. Probably ~3-4 hours at a time. I would still recommend this since I like the tilt it adds and it lasted most of a year at full charge.
This battery worked great at first. I increased my battery life by nearly double of a new manufacturer battery. 3 hours -> 5 hours on Samsung RC512. I've had it for a few months now and I'm already down to ~2 hours battery life and my computer doesn't accurately read the charge anymore. My computer reads 80% when fully charged and dies at around 20% now. This can be annoying as my laptop doesn't hibernate before the charge gets too low so I lose everything. Overall decent deal for what you pay for. If you want better, get your expensive manufacturer battery for 2-3x the price.
