HTC One X+ Plus Black 4G Quad-Core 1.7 GHz GSM 64 GB Unlocked Cell Phone
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast processor, decent amount of ram, lots of storage capacity, decent battery life, lte.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is a great phone, but it's one of those where you should know what you're getting first. The tegra cpu, etc means there isn't a lot of 3rd party dev support so you can pretty much forget about custom roms like CM10/11 so you better like sense 4/5. Also, android version only goes as high as 4.2.2. And that's likely the highest it will ever get. Some of the early versions also had overheat issues, and in general, this phone runs hot anyway. Mine has never once overheated though. It is fully lte capable with at&t and straight talk as well. Mine has the lte data icon up top and everything. Those are the only real things to note. I like mine a lot and don't plan on upgrading it anytime soon.

SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works, it's fairly fast, it ups your windows performance rating, decreases boot times, etc. Basically all the things an SSD is supposed to do. Although, I do not notice the drastic difference everyone always raves about. It's faster, but not "wow" faster than my last sata drive it replaced.

Cons: Not as mind blowing a difference as people like to say. The price to storage capacity ratio is still pretty bad.
I know from previous experiences that Samsung tech support is a joke so hopefully nothing goes wrong.

Other Thoughts: No one really describes the headache of restoring an image of an UEFI GPT SATA drive to an SSD going in, so let me tell you...it's a pain. This is not a fault with the drive per se, but more a problem with the backup programs catching up with the technology. Basically it can't be done directly. You have to clean install windows first, then restore the OS partition only from your backup image. Knowing that going in will save you loads of time, so you're welcome. I'm still worried about long term reliability although I have been told by several people it's gotten better.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Lasted a long time and did it's job well.

Cons: I guess if I had to pick something, the fan(the part that finally failed) was a little cheap, but that's true of a lot of items like this, and it's a tradeoff we make in exchange for a slightly lower price than the competitors with higher price tags.

Other Thoughts: I'm on my second one of these. The first one lasted so long I can barely recall when I first got it, and I never had any overheat issues with it or anything. It was a good buy for the price, and still is, which is why I bought another to replace the old one. I only withhold 1 egg because, let's face it, this is not top of the line quality here, and thus doesn't earn that 5th egg. But again, for what it is, it is good and reliable and I recommend it.
