Sony Active Style Stereo Headphones with Around the Ear Soft Loop Hangers - Engineered for Astounding Sound and Designed for Walking, Jogging, Exercising, Sports & Bike Riding - Compatible with Most M
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Most comfortable clip-on style earbuds I've ever used. Easily worn for 16+ hours a day (yes, some days I really have them in that long). I personally find the sound quality just as good as any other pair of headphones out there, but that's also something I care little about. These headphones are for comfort more than anything.

Cons: I've owned 4 pairs of these, and every time after about 9 months, the left side kinda dies. Still sound coming from it, but barely. I keep going with just the right side until that dies usually a month or two later.

Browsing other models, this seems to be common with sony.

Other Thoughts: My most recent pair has just died, and will definitely be replaced with another pair. The comfort is just unbeatable.

If you're fine with replacing them every so often, these are great. Overall: would recommend.

Pros: It's RAM. You put it in, you test it, it works/doesn't work. Nothing special. This set happened to work.

However, the low profile flashy orange heat-sink looks really cool. And I guess it comes with a tower badge... There's not really much to say here.

Cons: Apparently I have to write something here...

_MIGHT_ be problematic getting the memory profile right in the BIOS, but this wasn't any trouble for me.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Just as fast amazing as I was expecting and then some. Getting close enough to advertized read/write speeds. 128 GB is plenty for windows 7 and a few games. Windows 7 installed perfectly the second time.

Cons: Was probably my fault, but after installing windows and doing combo updates (14 at once :P ), got a blue-screen upon bootup.

...Umm... I don't get to see the windows bootup animation anymore?

Other Thoughts: After reading up, I decided on the M4 series because of longevity. Make sure to properly set up windows 7 to accommodate your SSD and reduce unnecessary writes-to's (prolonging it's life).

Even after going from an Athlon dual core @2.4 GHZ and a 8800 to an i5 2500k and AMD 7850, adding an SSD is the single most impressive upgrade I've seen.

Get one. Seriously.
