StarTech HSB220SAT25B 2 Drive 2.5in Trayless Hot Swap SATA Mobile Rack Backplane
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs works perfectly and is a solid quality 06/30/2015

This review is from: StarTech HSB220SAT25B 2 Drive 2.5in Trayless Hot Swap SATA Mobile Rack Backplane

Pros: Purchase this not knowing what I'll get as there have been some manufacturers that looked good but did not pass the test of time. This unit makes swapping out HD or SSD (with a 2.5" size) very easy to swap or replace. Good construction, compared to many other units out there.

Cons: The con is not on the unit itself but the lack of choices with hot swap tray like this. For instance have one for the larger HD (3" forma factor) would be very useful, whether it be 3" only or a combination of 3" and 2.5"

Other Thoughts: Over all this unit works perfectly and it really is easy to install and use.

OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs works very well and is fast 06/30/2015

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This SSD does what it says it does, so long as you make sure you use the higher bandwidth 6 Gig SATA cables, it really does make the deference. Also runs much cooler then a standard HD.

Cons: Most people do not use a hot swap rack on there desktops and so will not run into what I did with this SSD. Turns out that this drives ports (SATA and Power) are slightly higher then normal and would not fit in any of my hot swap trays so I had to mount it in a normal HD space in the Desktop. This is not a problem to most but can be a pain if your prefer to use the hot swap features to make changing drive faster and easier.

Other Thoughts: Other then the minor but irritating port issue this drive does work fast and cool and has not caused any issues with Windows 10 preview.

MSI Radeon R9 270X R9 270X HAWK 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Have to admit that I was not too sure about this MSI card, but it turns out to be one of the best I have seen and used in some time. The quality and attention to detail as well as the seamless operation of this card speak for itself. I'm using it to test Win. 10 and run games, make large graphics, watch videos in High Def. this thing just chugs along without once skipping, slowing down or having a moment when the screen blanks out. It works prefectly.

Cons: The only down side is not with the drivers but the software that comes with it, while they work it just does not compare with what you would get with Asus. Never the less the software works, if you need or want to pull out all the stops and turn your system into a foot warmer.

Other Thoughts: This card presently is resides in an AMD system with an Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0, 8 Gigs of G. Skill memory Sound Blaster sound card. If your looking for a perfectly balanced and well behaved vedio card this one does the trick.
