This review is from: MSI Model Turbo U.2 Host Card Accessory - Motherboard
Pros: Easy installation. Motherboard recognized it, plugged my NVMe drive into it, and it worked..!! It's a must have for using 2.5 form factor NVMe drives without a native SFF 8639 plug. Forget SSD's if you have the extra money, NVMe drives are sick fast..!!!
Cons: None, just plain worked like it was supposed to..!!
Other Thoughts: The last bottleneck of speed in a monster rig is the hard drive. With NVMe you're complete, i.e., load times of large graphics/CAD projects or scene switching in gaming, say like, Fallout 4 in HD, (2560 X 1440), goes away. Boot times are insane fast, program installations, ridiculous fast..!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Mega fast read/write speeds. Low heat output and power consumption. 2.5 compact form factor.
Cons: Cable a bit short, but not "Too" short, (I have a full ATX case however). Pricey..!!
Other Thoughts: Newer games and large video editing and photo editing benefit from NVMe drives. Boot times too..!! Fallout 4 for instance with it's long switching times from one area to another, especially hi-res HD settings, is due to the long read/write speeds of a mechanical drive. SSD's help but are still hampered by SATA throughput. With a modern rig, SATA is the last bottleneck to unfettered performance. NVMe is the answer..!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pioneer SE-CX8 In-Ear Headphones-Black
Pros: GREAT BASS, nice highs, solid construction, phone mic with call button, flat rubber cord..!!
Cons: Kind of bulky/heavy felling in the ear..!!
Other Thoughts: I guess you can't have it both ways so I suppose Pioneer made them as small as possible while keeping them big enough to have the sound they do, and at the end of the day, you don't buy $200 earphones for a fashion statement..!! These things perform..!!READ FULL REVIEW
