Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this last October to give to my son for Christmas. I thought it would perk up his old Gateway Core 2 laptop, and it did - he was ecstatic when his machine booted up in 25 seconds. Used Acronis True Image to clone his original drive. The machine was much more responsive - programs open up almost instantly.
I bought

Cons: Unfortunately, it took me 3 months (after Christmas) to get around to installing this in his laptop. He got to enjoy it for two weeks, and then POOF! Nothing. Computer reports that there is no hard drive found, BIOS sees nothing on the SATA port. Removed the drive, installed in a USB dock, drive would not recognize.
Reinstalled his old hard drive and he's back up and running again - but bmuch more slowly.

Other Thoughts: This is the fourth SSD I've owned from OCZ. The first was an Agility 3, then a Vertex 3, and finally the Vertex that I have in my custom-built desktop (great drive!). This is the first and only recert/refurb drive I've purchased, and I expected better of OCZ. I have to double-check all dates, but I think we're barely within the warranty period - hopefully OCZ will replace this drive.

XIGMATEK  Accessor Pro Extreme Speed Real USB3.0  3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Has a USB 3.0 port

Cons: Card reader NOT USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: Not sure what all the speedy-sounding words are doing in the name - this is a standard USB 2.0 card reader that adds a USB 3.0 front port. Which is fine - if that's all you're after.
But if you're looking for a card reader that operates at USB 3.0 speeds, you'll need to look elsewhere. They run about 2x this price, so if you thought this deal was too good to be true, you are correct.

Cooler Master CM Essentials 140 - Sleeve Bearing 140mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, Adequate air movement, Great to look at

Cons: Can't think of one

Other Thoughts: These are great fans, and the price is reasonable. They have a great look, and are EXTREMELY quiet. If they are not totally quiet it your case, it is because of fan location or grille design- not because of this fan. Air movement doesn't seem particularly strong, but the size of this fan means you won't feel it as much as with a smaller fan.
