Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/240G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Reasonable priced when on sale for around $130, but you can (and should) get a better drive for slightly more if you are looking for higher speeds.

Performs as advertised in ATTO benchmark. Note: I am using a SATA III board (Asus Sabertooth 990FX) with all the BIOS settings properly configured, so there is no bottlenecking with the board.

A sizable upgrade from a standard HDD, but any SSD should be.

Cons: In any benchmark other than ATTO, this drive fails to meet the stated speeds.

Jewel has been copy-pasting her same spiel every time someone makes this comment, but it is invalid if OTHER drives in the past OF THE SAME MAKE with different firmware have been able to achieve advertised speeds in any benchmark utility.

Other Thoughts: I would honestly like to know why the older drives sport such improved performance over the newer ones when dealing with compressed data.

If handling compressed data was never the intent of the drive, then why were the older drives able to handle it without any issues?

I would like to see this issue addressed and offer customers a chance to exchange their drive for an older one, and for Kingston to post some sort of obvious disclaimer that the advertised speeds can only be reached with certain data types in certain situations.

CFI Diablo LT CFI-B1010 Black SECC / Mesh & Plastic Front Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Got the case on sale for $39.99 and it's great for the price. Solid construction, especially for the price, and the fans are as quiet as a whisper. Cooling is great and I noticed a 20c drop in temps on my GPU under load.

I noticed several reviews pointing to a flimsy motherboard tray, but mine seems as sturdy as the rest of the case.

Cons: The red/black/blue colour scheme is a bit odd, but I can't complain for the price.

Only reason I'm knocking off an egg is the case I received was slightly damaged. Upon arrival, there were several sizable tears on the box itself, some of which it looks like had been patched with tape.

The case itself was only slightly damaged, but still an annoyance. As another reviewer had stated, my transparent side panel also came with a bottom thumb screw that was heavily bent, making it difficult to close the case. However, it was able to be largely fixed by carefully bending the case and panel with some pliers, but it still doesn't slide in like it should.

TL,DR: Knocking off an egg for damage to the case when received.

Other Thoughts: Not really worth the hassle of RMAing for the price, but it seems that many customers are receiving damaged cases, and I hope this issue is addressed.

VANTEC HDA-525P 3.5
  • Verified Owner

4 out of 5 eggs Cheap... 01/02/2014

This review is from: VANTEC HDA-525P 3.5" to 5.25" Front Bay Converter Kit

Pros: Cheap, does the job

Cons: Came broken in the box, a small crack in the top front rail of the tray causes it to buckle inward and look slightly off. Still holds my card reader though, so I'm only knocking off one egg.

Other Thoughts: Pretty cheap construction, but that's to be expected for the price. Not really worth the RMA if yours arrives broken like mine did; neat product nonetheless.
