House of Marley Smile Jamaica EM-JE003-RA 3.5mm Connector In-Ear Headphones with Mic and 3-Button Controller - Rasta
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice bass response
Nice cord cover
Wood housing is cool

Cons: Volume controls don't work with Android

Other Thoughts: Quality earbuds...I couldn't tell the difference in sound between these and my brother's "K" brand that cost 3 times as much. The volume controls won't work with Android like most 3 button earbud sets, but I knew that going in and don't care about that. Headset controller apps usually don't work...depends on the phone manufacturer. Usually you have to have buds that are made for the phone for 3 button controls to work.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DL004 / HD105SI 1TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked for 3 months

Cons: Died after 3 months

Other Thoughts: This is a relabeled Seagate Barracuda Green...made in China. Samsung doesn't make mechanical drives any more. Seagate bought them out. Should have known better.

APRICORN VEL-SOLO Velocity Solo - SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop Computers
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs High on Velocity 11/25/2012

This review is from: APRICORN VEL-SOLO Velocity Solo - SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop Computers

Pros: 40% performance boost in my setup

Cons: None for me

Other Thoughts: Was getting 220 MB/sec transfer rate, now it's 365 MB/sec. For those who understand such things there's a caveat: With most motherboards, if you have only one PCI-E 2.0 slot populated with a graphics card, the bandwidth will be x16. If you populate the 2nd slot, both slots will have bandwidth of x8. That is how I'm running. If I had a chip with onboard graphics and had only Velocity solo populating a PCI-E 2.0 slot, it would be running at x16 and I would no doubt get a transfer rate better than my current 365MB/sec. Since I'm no gamer and my graphics card is fine running x8, it was worth the small investment. I did not need to clone my drive since I already had an SSD boot drive (Samsung 830 128GB). Just unplugged the storage drive, booted up and Windows 7 recognized it immediately.
