ASUS GT630-SL-1GD3-L GeForce GT 630 1GB 64-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works great both in Win7 and Win8 02/10/2014

This review is from: ASUS GT630-SL-1GD3-L GeForce GT 630 1GB 64-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Works great both in Win7 and Win8 at 4k resolution over HDMI port. I love it that it is fanless-silent and using relatively little power

Cons: I am using it now in a new desktop. It worked somewhat on an 8 year old destkop that only had PCI Express v1, but on that desktop it bluescreened a couple times. It probably was not realistic to use it on an 8 year old desktop, but I thought I would give it a shot.

Sceptre 32
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Very good value for a budget TV 12/04/2010

This review is from: Sceptre 32" 720p LCD HDTV X322BV-HD

Pros: - downscales 1080 line channels nicely (to 720 lines)
- closed captioning's font, size, and color can be customized, which is a very good thing for people with imperfect vision
- built-in media player, can do photo slide show while playing mp3 files in the background off a USB drive; it also allows zoom and pan with the photos

Cons: - media player can get confused in folders with 1000 files, got the TV to reboot, and even lose its settings (reverts to factory settings)
- only has 720 lines, so from upclose you can see the lines, but from 5 feet or more away it looks very good, so not an issue
- remote control has small buttons (but they have enough space between them, so one doesn't accidentally press two buttons at once).

Other Thoughts: None of the cons are biggies, and it is still worth it even at the regular price (I got it during the black Friday sale)

SAMSUNG 470 Series MZ-5PA064/US 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, quiet, cool. Adds almost 1 hour to my laptop's batery life. Very good price.

Cons: As others have noted, write speed is only 13k IOPS. Still much better than traditional hard disk.

Firmware update requires wiping the disk. Should have thought about it before installing OS and apps. I will just avoid updating the firmware....

Other Thoughts: As others wrote, best to install Windows 7 or another OS with built-in TRIM support. Have only tested it on Win7, and it flies (boot time 11 seconds; installing VS 2010, 8 minutes).

64 GB should be enough for most people, except those working with large videos. For those (and who don't have room for 2 drives) consider instead the Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM SSD Hybrid Drive
