Pros: I have several Samsung SSDs. They are all fantastic. This one is no exception. About longevity can't tell as I have only had it for a month. Speed wise, it performs as advertised.
Bought 500GB for $225 for laptop - Macbook pro late 2011.
When a second one came up for $200, I could not pass it up and bought for the desktop as well to upgrade from 840 Pro 128 GB to this 500GB drive.
Cons: One minor squibble is that I was unable to get the first drive to work on any USB 3 adaptor. I will have to wait for the second one to see if it has the same issues or not. I had to use a USB 2.0 adaptor to get the drive rcognized. Samsung said they will send an adaptor but they never got back.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent Memory. CL-9 and 1.35V. GSkill memories are always the lowest priced and so far have always performed flawlessly. I always buy these because I have never had to struggle with getting them to run at their advertised timings.
I bought tow individual 8Gb sticks for my MacBook Pro late 2011 and they work perfectly in dual channel at 1600MHz CL-9.

Pros: I bought a corsair K70 (read swithes) as my first mechanical keyboard. The second week I bought CoolerMaster ultimate with brown switches for my office use.
This is elegant, solid, sturdy and the keys feel superb! I haven't had a typing experience ever like the one you get from this keyboard.
The keys are just the right size.
Cons: None really. Except that it would be even better if the keys were raised like Corsair's.
Also; would have been nice to get a USB port.
Other Thoughts: In mechanical keyboards, the choices I narrowed down were:
(note, pro was crippled, only few keys lighted; how dumb; ultimate fixes that).
This is the only model in CoolerMaster lineup that I considered. All others seems half baked; with illogical key placement or half-hearted lighting.
This is the only one that gets all the aspects just right.
Aesthetics wise it is a notch below corsair K70.
I have compared these two in detail in corsair K70 review. But the short summary is that, either model is good. It seems a bit more solid than corsair, but corsair is more 'better' looking.
As far as switches are concerned, both red and brown feel excellent. Brown switches have that slight tactile feedback which makes it a better choice for typing. I would go personally chose brown for office and go with aesthetics (hence corsair K70 + read switches) for a home setting.
