Pros: I've owned this for over a year now and still no problems. I installed the full version of Windows 8.1 onto it without a problem. Out of all 705 ranked SSDs on User Benchmark my Team Dark L3 in particular ranked 167th. That's actually pretty dang quick. Got it on Flash Sale.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: There have only been several of these SSDs tested on User Benchmark so far giving this SSD a current overall rank of 340th which is right in the middle. That's still not bad at all for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This board accepted my cheap RAM from my previous HP desktop even though it wasn't listed as acceptable RAM in the manual. Later, I upped the RAM to ADATA 16GB after 6 months of ownership and the motherboard runs great still. When I built this PC I installed the full version of Windows 8.1 without a problem. This motherboard has gotten a lot of use since I've had it and no hiccups yet.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: I like the colors. I also like the BIOS layout, the EZ Update, and the AI Suite 3 for managing everything.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: First card that I've purchased so I was extremely, and I mean extremely, hesitant. I would read reviews for hours upon hours about graphics in this similar range.
Went from a stock ATI Radeon HD 5450 to this.
As quiet as old stock gpu. More quiet than stock gpu under stress.
5x or greater more powerful.
Fits in my stock midsize tower.
Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT:
I was looking around for this entire 3 or 4 weeks of ownership for a clue/fix to a sporadic horizontal line issue I was having. It would happen during movement in videos (Netflix, YouTube, etc.) and in games although less noticeable. And literally before typing this review I found the ridiculous simple fix. It is nothing to do with this card, any brand GTX 660 card, or any other gpu that you've upgraded to. It is WINDOW'S AERO MODE. Like most people before upgrading gpu, if you're picky you probably have turned on windows 7 basic or some minimal mode to maximize performance. Well, you need to turn that off and Aero on after installing the new graphics card! Window's for whatever reason doesn't like the compatibility of certain gpu's and its basic modes. Right click anywhere on your desktop background, select Personalize, and select any Aero theme you want. You can tweak the theme however you want (background change, sound fx, etc.) as long as it stays in Aero mode. This works for Window's Vista and 7 as far as I know. Spread the word!
