Crucial M4 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast & reliable, what else do you need? Will make any computer with mechanical storage instantly faster and it will cut your boot times at least in half.

Cons: Not as fast sequentially as some of the newest SSDs but you will never tell in day to day performance.

Other Thoughts: Put this in my girlfriends Toshiba laptop, decided on the 7mm version in case she upgrades to a thinner laptop in the future. Also have a 128GB M4 as the boot drive in my desktop and will never bother with mechanical storage again. If you got this for a laptop and need more storage just get a optical bay caddy and replace your optical drive.

Crucial M4 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great real world performance and ultra reliable. Easily one of the best SSDs on the market.

Cons: Not as fast sequentially as some of the newer products even though it won't be noticed in day to day desktop performance.

Other Thoughts: Got one of these for my girlfriend's laptop, decided on the 7mm version in case she gets a newer (ie thinner) laptop in the near future. Kicks the snot out of any mechanical laptop drive. If you need more storage just take your old drive and put it into a caddy and replace the optical drive with it. Then you have storage and speed. Also have a 128GB M4 as the boot drive in my desktop, would never bother with a mechanical hard drive ever again.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 670 DirectX 11 GV-N670OC-2GD 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Windforce Cooler, GTX 680 PCB, Cool, Quiet, Good Overclock out of the box.

Cons: Length, had to mod my drive cage to make room for the fan shroud as it extends past the PCB. Widened the notch I had already cut for the 8800GTXs PCB I had many years ago though :-P

Other Thoughts: Matches well with my i5-2500K @ 4.8GHz. Didn't add any extra noise to my PC, still only hear the slight whir of my case fans. Haven't tried OCing further yet but it crushes everything I've tried with it so far @ 1920x1200. Runs very cool under load.
