Pros: Running just one 256 GB Plextor in standard config as the root drive and it is 3x faster in reads/sec than a Samsung 850 Pro conventional SSD
Cons: Temperature of the Plextor is never below 45-49 degrees Celsius, even at idle. Since the module is on the underside of the board, close to the PS, I'm still searching for cooling solutions. I've been told by Plextor that there's nothing to worry about but I'm already reading about throttling on other vendor M.2 brands with the same configuration. I didn't skimp on fans for my mini-ITX case and none of the components, not even the 6700K processor, ever produced such temperatures as this module. I continue my quest for a cooling solution regardless.
A tip to "Anonymous" you get the driver for Windows 7 here:
I too was not impressed with Plextor support. Samsung definitely tries to help more in the form of updates and utilities, but this Plextor module is cheaper and quite fast. Make sure you picked the right M8Pe for your motherboard. There are different flavors. Hopefully you didn't pick the wrong one. See your motherboard manufacturer. Mine was Gigabyte and their support has gone downhill as well recently.
This review is from: ESET Smart Security 2015 - 3 PCs
Pros: I've been buying Eset Smart Security for over a decade. Never a single problem and I've bought numerous 3-PC suites for personal and client use. No, I am not a shill for them but go out of my way to defend them when a problem arises that is obviously "user error". One shouldn't give 1 star to a product until they've contacted the vendor directly. The inability to follow directions should not be the fault of the vendor. After all these years, ESet still supplies an American whose primary language is English on the tech support staff. Try to get that on the other 90 or so percent of the vendors that claim they are an American company. Try to complain to the other vendors about a problem in miscommunication similar to the problem of not getting the vendor to help consumers resolve a simple issue of licensing and see how fast they react. You'll be lucky if you even get an e-mail after a week or a tech that speaks English you can understand.
Cons: If I am from another part of the world, why don't Eset techs speak my language? After all, I'm buying the software and Eset refuses to sell their company to us so we can hire people for ten dollars a week.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Newegg service and price
Quality through and through
Sturdy and Awesome Styling
Cons: Duh! I guess the reset button is microscopic but it works so......?
Other Thoughts: Excellent value. Tried a Bitfenix Colossus mini-ITX case for my first mini-ITX build. I might have to do a post review on it. Beautiful styling but quality of parts lacking after only a year. This case by Corsair is extraordinary in every way and made my build much easier than the Bit Fenix. The appointments are well laid out and it was a pleasure putting the machine together. Going to try the value-priced Cooler Master Elite 130 next but, for a little more cash, I still appreciate and enjoy the looks and quality of this case.READ FULL REVIEW
