Windows 10 takes about 10 seconds to get to the login screen. Applications take a few seconds to open and games take a while aswell.
The laptop its in is an i7-2630Qm and it boots slower than a AMD A6-1450 w/ a Sandisk Ultra Plus 120GB...
Programs open at about the same speed.

Other Thoughts: My Windows 10 machine here that I am typing on is using a Transcend SSD340 120GB, which benches with lower peaks but higher 4k-64thd reads and better mixed aswell as better 4k (but not by much).
It boots in 2-3 seconds and everything opens instantly... Its using an i7 that is a bit faster than the laptop i7..
Either the BX100 I got is bad or the drive is just really poorly done.
After comparing reviews it looked like the best bang for the buck by far. But didn't live up to the benchmarks and I benched about 27% lower than others with the same drive...

Gateway KX2153 Abd Black 21.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great colors, great view angles, simple, tilt. Works for simple games too.

Cons: Not the most attractive monitor ever, but its fine.

Other Thoughts: This monitor actually uses a VA panel. Usually these are made by LG. It produces solid colors and is somewhere in between a TN & IPS.
The refresh rate is a bit slow, but I didn't have any problems with league of legends or warframe in the after hours.

Transcend SSD340 TS128GSSD340 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works great after almost 9 months of daily usage.

Windows 10 boots in about 3sec. Everything is almost instant. I can write to USB drives @ 50MB/sec even with batches of smaller files.

Runs cool even under load. Sips power, the power usage of my machine went down by 5W under load when I moved to this SSD.
Idle wattage down by 2W.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It has Cache memory (RAM) which not all SSD's have. its extremely fast especially on commonly used files (or if you keep opening the same thing again and again).
