Pros: 2.3GB/s sustained reads, 1040MB/s writes.
If not for the fact that my motherboard is one of the worst on the planet (Asus X99-A), this thing would be amazing!
...and it still is. For large files, this thing beats the living snot out of anything I've pitted it against. ...and, unlike RAID-0'd SSDs, it supports TRIM.
Cons: It *DOES* run really, really warm for what it is. My case has enough airflow for that not to be a huge problem, but I could see where it *COULD* pose an issue for some folks.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I feel it was worth the money.
I couldn't quite justify the 1.2TB version, so I went with this. I do not regret it in the least.
Pros: The picture is stunning; it's great for multi (side-by-side) monitor mounts as there's almost no bezel or border, though it does not have VESA mount points, so you have to find (and usually tap) a specially made mounting plate. ...however...
Cons: After about 8 months of light usage, the right half of the screen started developing stripes of various colors. Didn't matter whether it was VGA or DVI, and it was system-agnostic. Dell couldn't give a [EXPLETIVE REDACTED] less about the problem, either, despite *MANY* phone calls. The warranty on this is utterly useless.
Occasionally, the stripes go away and it's lovely again. But then they come back.
Another thing it likes to do is 'lock up'. That is, no matter what you press, the monitor will not respond and will appear to be completely and totally dead. The fix for this is the same as most monitors that seem to lock: press and hold the power button, unplug the power while still holding the power button, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in while still holding the power button. Pretty much the same process to reset an HPaq laptop's power circuit when it refuses to turn on.
Other Thoughts: I had recommended this model to many, many clients. Of them, only one has had any issue other than the lockup discussed above -- and they had the stripe-banding issue that I have. I cannot, in good conscience recommend this to anyone anymore. I gave it two instead of one egg because I know they're not *ALL* bad.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've used these in server builds for clients and in a massive gaming rig for myself. The servers aren't really using it to its full potential, but the 10 year warranty was the draw for that. Plus, *ANYBODY* can swap out a modular PSU.
Now. For me? I'm pushing this thing to nearly 100% when I go insane. And it doesn't. Even. Blink. The weeping angels could not displace this PSU from its timeline and live off of the potential energy.
Cons: The one con: Some of the cables are a bit longer than I'd like, but you know what? SFW -- this thing is a beast and worth every penny.
Other Thoughts: By far one of the best PSUs I have ever owned. The only one to ever top it was the Corsair 1000W that I had in my Skulltrail dual Xeon machine. And even then I think this one could have handled that machine!READ FULL REVIEW
