SanDisk Extreme 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This drive is fast.

Cons: Wouldn't work in Intel SATA ports on my Asrock Extreme 4 Z77 Mobo. I kept getting BSOD with 0x000000F4 error. After lots of unsuccessful attempts to fix this, I finally installed the Asmedia SATA 3 drivers and the drive worked in there, but slower - Which is why people prefer to use the Intel slots. Then I started getting program crashes followed by windows crashes. Tried to reformat and couldn't install Windows 7!

Nothing worked. Secure erase didn't help. Clean all command in cmd prompt finally helped. Still couldn't use Intel ports, not even SATA 2 ports! Got windows installed but had corrupt files so I finally gave up after DAYS of trying. I tested everything... RAM, removed hardware, updated BIOS and all latest drivers. Finally I bought a mechanical hard-drive. Popped that in and everything worked completely normally just as you would expect. Slower... but in a way a 1 minute boot-up is better than a 20 second boot-up that crashes and corrupts everything it touches.

Other Thoughts: Weird part: I put this drive in a cheap Asus AMD build and it works fine (though the board only supports SATA 2). That's why I gave 2 stars...

Like another reviewer on here, this was an upgrade from a perfectly functional, smaller SSD. Ugh.

Oh and I bought this from Newegg on an auction site sale and a week after I got it they said they couldn't RMA but I could try going through Sandisk... I won't forget that one Newegg.

Pros: The cable works great.

Cons: Id rather it was just a black cable.

MSI Z77A-G41 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I really enjoyed working with this board. Very easy bios to navigate and all, everything worked fine with updated drivers. I believe one PCI-E x16 slot didn't work, I think the 3.0 one but when I updated the motherboard it was fine!

Cons: None to speak of. You get what you pay for and this is not a high-end board. It all depends what you are using it for.
