Pros: A fantastically fast drive that performs well in my Asus UL-80VT. I installed this SSD in my aging Asus ultrabook and it performs very well. I installed Ubuntu 15.04 onto the machine as a fresh install and boot times, read/write times/etc are all fantastic and well worth the investment in the product. The drive is manufactured by OCZ and sold under the AMD brand which means that I can put my faith in the fact that it will last for quite some time.
The drive was easy to install, format, load the OS, etc. and all of the normal things that one would expect a drive to do. The thing I was not expecting was the included 2.5 -> 3.5" drive adapter so that if I wanted to I could have put the device into my desktop without having to but an aftermarket adapter. This to me was a really nice bonus and it's a simple thing that would really push me to look in this direction for hardware in the future.
The drive has made my aging laptop usable as an every day linux machine now. I would happily recommend this to anyone looking to update their PC from a traditional magnetic drive.
Cons: None yet, everything works well and I haven't experienced any registers failing or anything like that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS MX780 USB Wired RGB Laser Gaming Mouse
Pros: Fancy looking, well built, smooth operating mouse. As a mouse goes, this is a nice little unit. The bottom is aluminum so it's nice and slick and will be able to take a beating. The buttons and heel are made of a smooth plastic which doesn't have much texture to it and allows you to grip the device well. Clicks on all buttons are satisfying and fit nicely in your hand. The heel height is adjustable, the side wings are removeable and swappable into a left or right handed configuration (extra pieces included). The DPI setting is definitely a plus --especially for those moments when you really need the precision. Use of the mouse has been pleasant and I haven't had too many complaints with the hardware itself.
Cons: The software. I, for the life of me, cannot figure out how to program events and such to the device using the included software. The software is clunky and does not behave in a way that I would expect. I was able to change the colors of the lights on the mouse but it is not really intuitive as to how you would change the color. This is the main reason for a non-5 star rating.
The weighted inserts need to be heavier. My previous beast of a mouse was the original MX Revolution by Logitech. That mouse is heavy and smooth in your hand. Even with both 4.5g inserts in the MX780, the mouse is not heavy enough for me. I have large hands and having that extra counterweight would be really appreciated. I would gladly take the ability to add more weight to the device over having fancy lights any day of the week.
RGB lighting colors are not accurately represented in the software compared to what shows up on the device --this is especially apparent in the orange spectrum.
Other Thoughts: Overall, if you're looking for a high precision mouse that is going to hold up well for gaming and be comfortable for long-term use on a daily basis, this is a great little unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 850 watts is almost into microwave oven territory for most people. This unit is sleek, quiet, and powerful. The modular cabling makes setup and installation a breeze. The ability to hook directly into WOL ports on compatible NICs is an added bonus. I really liked the idea of being able to manage my power connections via the software and usb header connection. This is something that should be done with care however so you don't fry your machine!!
Not having multiple graphics cards, this PSU is more than enough for the LGA2011-v3 processor and my nvidia gtx560 gpu. This unit was a step up in terms of noise and power from the old 750ax that i bought a few years ago and I can't say enough good things about corsair's quality in terms of these units.
The unit comes with a little nylon bag to store any unused cables, a few cable ties for organization and a nice velvet pouch for the psu itself.
Cons: My only knock would be to have some type of threaded nut on the modular connectors instead of the springy clip locks. Nothing worthy of removing a star, and it would also most likely increase production cost.READ FULL REVIEW
