HP Pavilion g7-2273ca Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good solid feeling machine, and one screw access to upgrades of ram, hard drive, and one more for optical drive bay.

Cons: No expansion card slot (pci-e), and windows 8 preinstalled

Other Thoughts: First thing I did was order a copy of windows 7 pro to go with this and trash the windows 8 install. Had to use winzip's driver searcher utility since there are no HP supported drivers for windows 7 on this machine, but well worth it. Note that since this was meant for the Canadian market it has US keys as well as some french markings, but you don't really notice them nless you want too. Keyboard layout is a little odd as is key spacing, but you get used to it pretty quick.

SilverStone Sugo Series SG09B Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of drive options if you plan ahead, great cooling, small size packs a full sized system.

Cons: Power adapter wrong angle, slot load optical drive, front filter keeps falling off.

Other Thoughts: As lots of others have mentioned the angle of the power cord is backwards. They should have used a left hand angle connector instead of a right angle one. Poor design by Silverstone in this area. Minus 2 egg for having to splice in a proper connector.

SYBA SY-PEX40052 PCI-Express x1 Low Profile Ready SATA III (6.0Gb/s) HyperDuo SSD and SATA 6G HDD Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Does what it says. Will turn an SSD and a HHD into a hybrid drive

Cons: WILL NOT go up to 6gbps even in a 4x 2.0 slot as was recomended. Maxes out at 5gbps, and windows profiler is no better than running the drive strait to the motherboard (5.9)on a lower 3gb connection

Other Thoughts: I bought a board that had the higher slot available than 1x just to use this card, and come to find out the performance of the card is identical to that of plugging it into a 1x slot when it was plugged into a 2.0 4x slot.
