SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Poor, poor support, lousy performance 01/02/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Reasonably priced when on sale. It has no moving parts (like all SSDs).

Cons: the support is non-existent. Never answers the phone, can't chat for SSD support and their website offers no support on this model. You select it and what is renders is NOTHING.

Performance stinks. I can't get help to see if it is a defective device. Gave up trying. Shame on Samsung. Shame on me for not being determined enough to get through somehow.

Other Thoughts: Installed in a T500 laptop, this SSD has very mediocre performance, not much better than a HD in many cases. I have a Crucial M4 in a desktop that runs CIRCLES around this product. Granted, it has a Sata 3 interface on the desktop, but it is not even close. AS SSD benchmarks show how lame it is.

Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 500W Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Loud fan, works, mediocre support 12/12/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 500W Power Supply

Pros: Works

Cons: Fan is loud and doesn't appear to have multiple speeds as claimed on the box. Seemed to run full speed all the time.

Coolermaster support kept trying to get me to return to the merchant after I contacted them. I gave up and I'm just keeping it as a hot spare to get me between power supplies.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a Thermaltake TR2-600W that died. It is a much louder fan (bought it based on the claim of multi-speed fan). When the replacement Thermaltake appeared (Thermaltake stands behind their products), I swapped it out and peace and order was restored to the family room (it was in my media PC).

NETGEAR 5 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS105)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small, metal case, gigabit

Cons: Power and cables plug in on opposite sides. Not meant be out on a desktop where you view it to check light status (like you would on a SOHO router). No big deal. Just be aware.

Other Thoughts: Receive speed was very slow. Contacted netgear. Very effective service! Called me next day and gave me an RMA. Super service. Waiting for a return unit.
