Manufacturer Recertified OCZ RevoDrive X2 OCZSSDPX-1RVDX0240.RF PCI-E 240GB PCI-Express x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Configurable BIOS for the RAID config on the card (it ships w/ RAID 0). Blinky blue lights to show power/activity

Cons: Its old tech, and you absolutely need a dedicated PCI-E x4 slot (or an x16 with at least 4 lanes available) to make this worth the investment. Even then, at max throughput, this will get smoked by a pair of modern SATA III SSDs (that is, made within the last 2 year) in a RAID 0 config.

Other Thoughts: I had this in a system running a pair of OCZ Vertex 3 drives in RAID 0 - peak performance eclipsed the 1000 MBps mark which is over 20% faster than the theoretical limits the RevoDrive can attain. A low-profile design would be nice as well, but not taking any eggs for that. Do yourself a favor and just get a pair of SATA III SSDs and RAID them. If this were written 2+ years ago I probably would have given this a couple more stars...

Rosewill RMS-MT6010 Black 26
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Expandable backing plate out to about 34", which is slightly wider than normal wall stud spacing, making this easy to attach to 3 wall studs. The brackets do allow for the TV to be set at an angle up to 15 degrees. Mounting kit comes with a spirit level that also has a magnetic base for loosely securing to backing plate while mounting.

Cons: Instructions could use a lot of improvement. Whoever proofed the instructions needs to be fired from Rosewill. Ended up literally tearing the install manual apart and laying the parts of the foldout instructions back on the floor so I could follow them linearly (really wish I could post a before and after photo to show what I mean), so one egg there. The mounting angle range is limited to 0, ~7.5, and 15 degrees, so there is no full range adjustment that can be made for the TV viewing angle (loss of another egg).

Other Thoughts: Shipping could have been better. When I received the box it was pretty beat-up (not uncommon), but it was the lack of any type of tape on the box to ensure it stayed closed that concerned me. I had to count every part before getting started just to make sure nothing had gone missing.

MSI A55M-P33 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low cost, and had all the basic features I was looking for - 6 SATA II ports, PCIe for future expansion, and support for up to 16GB ram, all in a mATX form factor.

Cons: Only 2 DDR3 slots, but I knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: Using this with a dual-core FM1 and 8GB of RAM as a FreeNAS (8.3.x) box. Its been rock-solid since its been stood-up, and I did not have any issues with drivers. Was running 6x 1.5TB WD Green devices, and average CPU utilization barely spiked above 20% when transfering files.
