OCZ Trion 100 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

2 out of 5 eggs MEDIOCRE performance, half the advertised speeds 12/20/2015

This review is from: OCZ Trion 100 2.5" 120GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) TRN100-25SAT3-120G

Pros: *nice looks
*good packaging
*nice sata connector working with locking cables
*OCZ Guru reported factory firmware 11.2 and up to date
*good customer service

Cons: -very poor performance!!! pretty much at half the advertised speeds
-bad reviews regarding lifespan of this drive (untested here)
-all in all it is not worth the money it costs, go with ARC100 model if you like OCZ, that one was closer on advertised performance numbers

Other Thoughts: Test station was Windows 10 Pro x64 running on Gigabyte Z97X-UD5H board with i7-4790K @ 4.7GHz, 16GB RAM @ 2400MHz
OCZ Trion 100 120GB connected to SATA III 6G interface, running in AHCI mode

iRULU eXpro X1 7
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: *it works
*Not bad CPU, quad core it is, but scores lower than my 3 years old Samsung Galaxy S3 dual-core phone
*16GB storage
*comes with 2 USB charging cables, micro-USB to USB and DC to USB
*not a bad price if you need a cheap 7’’ kitkat tablet with Google apps, e.g. something that often gets dirty or has a chance of breaking into pieces
*came with screen protector (actually 2 of them, one on top of other) attached
*TF slot for micro SD memory cards

Cons: -specs mistakenly state it supports 3G (it doesn’t as far as I know)
-wifi adapter supports only 2.4GHz networks
-despite manual stating the wall adapter is included it was not in the box
-only 512MB RAM, not much can be done with that in late 2015
-horrible 1024x600 (far from HD!!!) screen with ancient low-res, stretched font, washed out colors and terrible angle of view that makes you sick even when looking straight at it, only 160dpi (might be OK as first ever tablet for elderly people)
-latest stock firmware update from July 2015 is android 4.4.2 which is a really bad joke in late 2015 when we have android 6.0 already released
-likely can’t be upgraded to newer family of custom ROM (if there was one for this device) because of the RAM size limitation, maybe Kitkat 4.4.4 will run on it if anybody ever releases such an update
-stock screen protector attached to device slightly off screen itself and had so many air bubbles that I just removed it because a monkey would apply it better…
-battery seems to drain fast when in use, I'd give it a few hours at most of constant use

Other Thoughts: When device boots up the model is advertised as Irulu ExPro X1, but the model name on the back of device is marked as Irulu X7, not X1S or X1

Antutu Benchmark score ranked 16056 for me
Antutu hw specs:
Processor: QuadCore ARMv7 (4 cores) min 120 MHz, max 1344 MHz
GPU renderer: Mali-400 MP
Display density: 160 dpi
Front Camera: 0.3 MP 640x480
Rear Camera: 1.9 MP 1600x1200
RAM available/max: 150/399

3DMark IceStorm Extreme benchmark installed, but cannot run (device unrecognized).

From SystemUI Settings:
Model Number: X7
Processor type: QuadCore-A33
Android version: 4.4.2
Firmware version: v2.0
Kernel version: 3.4.39 adc@adc #32 Mon Jun 29 17:47:11 CST 2015

G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome near silent mechanical gaming keyboard 09/13/2015

This review is from: G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Brown Switches

Pros: *marvelous gaming keyboard with excellent quality mechanical Cherry MX Brown switches! Switches are nearly silent themselves, but with gentle typing only, because fast typing likely bottoms out keycaps and the keycaps (not switches!) make sort of a click sound that way anyways.
*RGB add-on to all switches makes the illumination options nearly infinite as each key can be lit separately or all together with some fancy functions
*nice software coming with 4 lighting presets (you can create own ones) and module for macro recording
*USB and analog audio pass-through ports (read below)
*media and volume control right on keyboard with nice visual red LEDs bar for volume strength
*nice box that can get attached at rear of keyboard for storage of regular or profiled gaming keycaps (WASDQERCFG) and keycap puller tool
*device can store up to 3 profiles (each with 6 macro keys and separate lighting profile)
*long cable
*illumination strength (3 steps or off) controlled by key on device itself

Cons: Cable is pretty stiff, but that's likely because it consists of 4 cables actually, 1 USB cable for device operation (marked with keyboard pictograph), another USB cable for pass-through capability and 2 audio cables for analog headphones pass-through.
Now, this analog pass-through takes your rear audio ports, so if you already have some speakers connected over there, mind that you won't be able to use it with your analog headphones this way, you will have to unplug something or plug devices alternately straight to your keyboard.
Keyboard media keys, volume bar and profile keys cannot get custom lighting mode, they always stay red.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my old gaming keyboard (Logitech G510) with horrible switches (not mechanical ones), space-bar always acting up from day 1 and poor lighting options (all or nothing), this G.Skill keyboard made my day and I simply fell in love with it from the first sight :)
