This review is from: Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive
Pros: Recently bought this at a local store because my SSD died and they were completely sold out of all SSD's. Brought it home not expecting much, installed Windows 8.1 and booted it. I'd say the boot time between my old SSD and this were barely noticeable. Much better then you would expect for it being what it is.
Cons: As you should expect, the read and write speeds within Windows are on par with standard HDD's. The drive claims to boot up commonly used applications faster but I have yet to notice his.
Other Thoughts: Although this is a nice drive for what it is, at the end of the day an SSD is typically going to be faster with both boot times and write speed. This is only worth the money if you are limited to the amount of drives you can put in your computer (i.e.-a laptop) and need a large amount of space on your system drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Z523 40 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
Pros: Sound quality is good for the price point, sub woofer has plenty of power.
Cons: At this price point, I'd really expect a mic jack. No mic jack to be found :-(
The left speaker died after a few days due to a faulty connecter. Logitech was very helpful and sent me an entire new speaker system without asking me to return the old one. I spliced in a new connecter and now I have two of these!
This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset
Pros: Removable mic, decent voice quality, low cost.
Cons: Looks and feels like junk.
Other Thoughts: I didn't expect much out of this headset as I picked it up on sale for $20. I thought I'd give everyone a heads up though that really the only nice feature of this headset is the ability to remove the mic. The headset itself feels like junk.READ FULL REVIEW
