Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Lacks universal SATA compatibility 08/22/2014

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT256MX100SSD1 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, excellent price point, highly reliable, works great with SATA III controllers, OS X 10.8 and 10.9.4 compatible. 4K platter format can make Chimera hiccup. Easy fix available for direct booting.

Cons: Not compatible with Gigabyte GA-EP43-UD3L SATA II controller. After making the Acronis image onto the drive, the original boot drive was replaced with this new SSD. System booted, but then began halts, freezes, write cache errors and all sorts of compatibility problems between this drive (Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit, Q9650 cpu) and the OS and motherboard. Tried all sorts or tricks with BIOS and in Windows to get it to behave, but it did not. Only choice was to remove this drive and replace with original mechanical drive. Wound up upgrading from old WD blue 1TB to WD RE4 1TB and system hums.

Other Thoughts: Drive works perfectly in GA-Z77X-UD5H SATA 3 port running OS X 10.9.4.

Three stars for lack of SATA 2 compatibility with P43 chipset.

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Red LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Lots of airflow. Suitable for use with liquid cooling next to radiator, at back of case, side of case or top exhaust.

Cons: NONE.

Other Thoughts: This is the powerful 0.37 amp model fan. It blows hard and a lot of air so it makes more noise at full speed. You can probably control speed if plugged into motherboard.
Cooler Master also makes a less powerful 0.16 amp fan which moves less air and makes less noise. I think people do not understand the difference between the 2 choices. The 0.16 amp fan usually comes pre-installed in the case while the 0.37 amp fan comes with the liquid coolers or available separately.

Know what to buy and you won't be dissapointed.

Acer UM.HG6AA.G03 G276HL Gbmid (UM.HG6AA.G03) Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Large 27" VA panel with wide viewing angles that did not distort when shifting eye positions. Sharp picture, easy to use on screen menu options and tilting base. Also has VESA mounts. Light weight and narrow bezel means easy multiple screen mounts.

Cons: Speakers are so small in size that they are virtually useless. I suspect Acer just shoved in what they could to the frame and the result is awful. What is the point of an HDMI interface when the audio output is essentially totally useless and these is no digital audio pass through? There is analog audio input also.
Very limited color adjustments, no RGB user adjustments, only some pre-packed modes like movie, game, normal, warm, cool profiles. Does not include a DVI cable.

Other Thoughts: Buy this monitor for it's size, clear matte finish screen, narrow bezel and tilting base. Do not buy it for its speakers which are poor and to be considered emergency use only.
