Pros: Low power as all SSD have
Cost per gig is great
WARRANTY oh yes pay attention to it better than industry standards.
Does compressed and uncompressed data the same
In house controller which only 3 manufactures have.
Cons: Is hard to find a con so far in over a week of use
Other Thoughts: I have at least a dozen different SSD by different manufactures so easy for me to compare this to others. I also have 2x240 gig in a Raid0 config so I can compare speed in different scenarios.
First off Toshiba has their own controller and is getting ready to introduce a even better one called JetExpress in 2015. I am sure they will be more expensive when introduced.
This controller is surprising because it does what so few others do it handles compressed and uncompressed data close to the same. For example compressed benchmarked at
Read 498.25 and Write at 433.96
Uncompressed benched at
Read 460.76 and Write at 417.17 overall score is 1018
The difference is another brand Compressed is 448.92 Read and write is 398.15
Uncompressed Read 158.23 Write 124.95.
All SSD use ATTO as a benchmark for their score and ATTO uses compressed data to test them with. That is why with AS SSD or Crystal Diskmark you get such lower scores because they use uncompressed data.
What this mean for the normal user is that installing programs and games and transferring home movies or picture or music on this OCZ will work faster than a brand that only score high in compressed data.
I have 2x240 gig in Raid 0 and so I tested this OCZ against them. Uncompressed is read 996.02 and write is 504.18 overall score is 1359. As you see uncompressed reads a lot faster but as far as writing it doesn't add that much now watch the numbers jump as I use compressed data.
Read 1071.06 and Write 1029.68. But what user only used compressed data most of us use uncompressed data and that is where this OCZ made by Toshiba shines. My boot up time on this single drive is faster than 4 other brands I have and I think it is the way it handles data is why. Now we are only talking 6 seconds but all but 2 of my other drives cost a lot more than this OCZ.
Now for the last point in why I like this drive is the warranty, It is 3 years as all but one or two other manufactures have they have a 5 year but not one of the others pays for shipping a RMA both ways and cross ships. That is at least a 10. savings if you get one that has problems no hidden cost. Also it has 2,000,000 hours of use at 20 gigs a day. The norm is 1,000,000 to 1,500,000 with 3 years which is measured at 10 gigs a day. So even though it is 3 years they could have easily said 5 years as the others do who have that long of warranty because to them 5 years is 2,000,000 hours. Now that makes them a more honest company to me as they don't stretch out the length of warranty because of the hours of use.
Now that I have seen the difference between this and my other SSD I will change my preferred company to OCZ I love it that they do so great with uncompressed data as that is where 90% od desktop or laptop users will see a speed difference.
Pros: decent laptop
windows 7 32 bit
Cons: no disk for restore
Other Thoughts: This came without the power cord, I notified newegg and they said they would contact seller to request it and it will take 3 days to hear from them. Has been 5 business days and still no word when cord will come. Laptop is useless without it as I cant charge it.
Will wait another 3 days then rma it for one with a cord.
This review is from: A4Tech X7 F5 V-Track Laser USB Gaming Mouse - Black
Pros: can change DPI on the fly
color coded so you know what DPI you are using
macros for certain games to customize buttons.
Cons: Using the software it keeps changing the DPI to other than what I set it at.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these as I use a laser mice on all computers. After using one of these you will never go back to optical. They spoil you quickly. I bought one of these about 2 years ago and it is still working so I put one on my kids computer for them and the other I put on mine and put the 2 year old one back into the closet for a spare if one breaks. I paid about 25 for one of these and at that price it is full worth it. It fits my hand good and comes with spare feet in case you need them. The cord is plenty long and is braded so you wont have to worry about the cord breaking.READ FULL REVIEW
