Pantum M6552NW 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi USB / Ethernet / Wireless mono Laser MFP Printer
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great bang for the price 09/22/2016

This review is from: Pantum M6552NW 1200 dpi x 1200 dpi USB / Ethernet / Wireless mono Laser MFP Printer

Pros: Set up is easy. Remove all the tape and the doc feeder things. Put in the disc pick the correct printer and how you want to connect. Follow on screen instructions. Good print quality. Scans in color if you choose. Really nice for the price. Small foot print.

Cons: Scanning is a bit slow. Using the paper instructions can be confusing. Limited file type. This is not for a business, this is for personal use.

Other Thoughts: If you don't need color prints and you aren't printing thousands of pages. This printer is for you. Laser vs inkjet, laser wins hands down as far as cost per print.
My qualifications on this subject is I am in the large office, production printers/copier business for over 25 years.
I would recommend this printer/scanner to anyone that just needs black prints etc.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: 480GB SSD for $100.00.
Way faster than a regular HDD.
3 year warranty.
Low power consumption.
Shock resistant.

Cons: There was no read/write test I performed on this Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive that came close the the advertised speeds. I recorded 270-295 MBps both read and write.
Does not come with any migration software.
Not a con for most people, but TLC will wear out sooner. For most people probably not a problem.
Kinda like there are only so many barks in a dog. A SSD only has X amount of read/write til it will begin to fail. MLC will have more read/write than TLC. That's just the way it is.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this drive for anyone that is not a power user.
Don't let my cons scare you off. This is a very good SSD for the price.
As another reviewer mentioned a SSD is only as good as the controller it uses.
This drive uses a Phison controller, as do others that cost more.
There really isn't a reason to not use a SSD in a new computer build or bring some new life to an older computer.
If you do not have SATA III your gain in performance will be much less. Many older laptop/PC might not be able to get full benefit of what an SSD can do because they don't have the capability to handle the data speed.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The price point. Speed. 3 year warranty. (newegg site says 1 year Silicon Power site says 3 years) Easy install. Low power consumption. Ability to put new life into an older PC/laptop. Tests show the read and write speeds are a little lower than the specs say, but they all are, that I have used. I put 2 of these together in a striped array, killer fast.

Cons: I don't have any cons. The real test is longevity,and reliability. Just be sure to at least back up your important files. As all people should do. No cloning software. There are several good ones around for free. I use a paid for version. There is no adapter bracket or hardware. You may need to purchase one depending on your application. These aren't really cons to me.

Other Thoughts: When SSD's first hit the market I was all over them. They were expensive and reliability was not so good. Also they were not as fast as they are today. Actually for me failure rate was so high I stepped away for a couple years. Now I always have multiple backups just in case. But a lot of people don't for reasons unknown. I'm not going to bore you with all the numbers but for most people the Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC will work great. Keep in mind if you install this in a computer that does not support SATA III speeds your benefit will be limited but still faster than the traditional spinning HDD.
