Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: no moving parts, comes in thin form factor with a spacer for normal 2.5. Even though the drive is not consistent in its read speed, my feeling is that it doesn't seem to affect boot speed of a windows 7 or 8 image.

Cons: its feels heavy for a 120Gb SSD I have not weighed it but its definitely a lot heavier than my 128Gb Sandisk. The read speed varies wildly depending on the (compressability?) of the data being read.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure whats going on here but the speed seems to vary with the image I put on it. If I zero the drive I get near advertised speeds with hd-tune. With a normal windows 7 or 8 image on it the speed drops by around 25% on average and down to half in some areas.Seeks times are not perfect either and are as high as 3ms in several reads across the drive. Overall seek time is about equal to the response of the controller (less than 1ms). On my sandisk there is none to speak of but on this one there are a few slow spikes. I almost returned them (I bought three) but extensive testing on them showed me that its just the way they are and exchanging one mediocre ssd for another would not help (no returns on this one guys)

Cooler Master Sleeve Bearing 120mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators (Value 4-Pack)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: its a fan - does what its supposed to, very quietly. Even among 120mm fans this one is quieter than most.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Use these to replace defective power supply and case fans and they are, in general, far superior to the originals.

Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD30EFRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Its quiet, red and nas aware. Passed a wipe and basic diagnostics. I ran HD tune, don't remember the numbers but I remember being impressed.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I bought two and tested both with wddiags and hdtune. Tried putting a windows 8.1 image on one and it booted and worked fine in MBR mode*. *Remember you need to use GBT partition for more than 2TB if you want it all in one partition and don't expect to boot from it. I will be booting from an SSD and using this for data.
