This review is from: IOGEAR - Composite AV Cable w/ Charge & Sync for iPod / iPhone (GIPODAVC6)
Pros: Running 5.1.1 iOS on my phone still and Netflix, Youtube and Pandora both work like a champ, that's what I picked it up for.... a cheap way to get my iPhone hooked up to speakers loud enough to hear in my shop when I'm there... big ole analog TVs are awesome for this!
Cons: I hate the push buttom iPhone plugs... just a pet peeve
No video on Pandora or most programs, but YouTube and Netflix work fine.
Other Thoughts: Cheaper than a iDock!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120KW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Wanted to upgrade from Vista Ultimate to Win7 and waited for a good drive to put it on for over a year now.... got this puppy at under $100 from the egg. My board is only SATA2 so I'm not going to get the awesome speeds I could but it will perform killer when I upgrade in the future...
The kit comes with a snazy USB adapter, simple bracket and SATA cable... along with a CD with the utilities.
I replaced a Hitachi 7200rpm drive and with the Win7 switch this thing is amazingly fast and seemless. Booting back up from a sleep state is as fast as it takes my 46" LED TV to warm up... I'm super happy with the speed of it compared to the old 7200rpm HDD.
Yes it runs at default of TRIM enabled in Win7, just checked to make sure in for this.
Cons: I had to update the firmware before I did the install, no big deal took some time to get the utility to find the downloaded file which sucked but once unziped it to my desktop I found it and easily upgraded it.
Other Thoughts: Based on the reputation of the 840 Pro and the only downfall to this is the lower write speed from it... this drive is a no brainer. I looked at some deals on a 2nd Gen X-25 Intel and the newer 330 Intel drives and the Samsung was the best drive for the money and performance.... not to mention their durability. I'm pretty sure that this drive will outlast the OS, and that's really all I care!
Also make sure you watch the SSD drive videos by newegg on here... they really helped with me learning about AHCI and learning where that was in my BIOS to make sure my drive ran properly.
Pros: I've had this up to 1520 speeds (760Mhz) pretty easily on my setup at 9-9-9-24-33 timings. I started out last year with 8gb in my machine and just doubled up to 16gb with the same speeds and no problems. This stuff is nice and cheap, 16gb and I think i've spent under $80 total on it.... sure beats the old days of 2-3gb of gaming RAM that died and performed worse!
Other Thoughts: No issues and performs better than advertised... I'd love to run it higher because I know it will do DDR3-1600 speeds but with my 280mhz bus speed I would be at 1865 which would be 932mhz.... don't think that's possible, but I haven't tried either.READ FULL REVIEW
