Pros: I purchased one for my PS3 over a year ago and the drive has been running without any problems. The speed is great and the size has been large enough to handle all of my DLC and PS-Plus downloads with hundreds of gigs to go. I imagine that this drive would also work just as well in a laptop.
Cons: None so far!
Other Thoughts: I just purchased a second for my PS4 since this drive is compatible with both systems and I have been very happy with the performance, so I decided to write a review about it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Fully compatible with the following components:
AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR3 1600
Has USB 3 and a good layout for setting up CrossFire or SLI. I like where the SATA connectors are located. Great performance. I set my drives to AHCI and it worked right away, even though I had Win7 already installed.
Cons: The PCI port for my discreet audio card will be really close to the additional GPU card in a CrossFire or SLI set-up. It may impact the cooling of the second card, so make sure you have adequate cooling if you're not using on-board audio.
Other Thoughts: Many other reviewers have written about the technical aspects of this board. I'll end with saying that this board works great with my CPU, GPU, and memory. Highly recommended for any AMD user. Also, the price is right for what you get.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master GeminII S524 - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: Short design, perfect for the case the I have (COOLER MASTER Silencio 550 RC-550-KKN1). Compatible with the newest Intel and AMD architectures, such as AM3+. Quiet, but still cools extremely well.
Cons: It's a bit tricky installing. Being top heavy, it tipped over(!) when I was trying to install it on top of a Phenom II X4 960T which freaked me out for a moment. Be careful, if another person is around, have them help keep it in place while you install the back plate.
Other Thoughts: Highly recommended and perfect for cases with low clearance.
Originally I had used "s c r e w e d in" describing the back plate and tagged it as an inappropriate word. I think the improper word detection is too sensitive!
