Seagate 600 Series ST240HM000 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I used this drive to replace my HDD in my MacBook Pro. It fit perfectly and was an easy install. Purchased it on Black Friday for a discounted price too. Plus my OS is extremely quick now.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews mention that the size they see is not actually 240 GB. That's to be expected, as you lose some space due to the filesystem formatting. On my MacBook, I'm getting 238.86 GB capacity. Windows 7 / 8 may get a little less. Linux - either way.

Also, don't boot this thing from a USB port. Why would you even bother to get an SSD if you boot it through USB? That immediately bottlenecks the connection. Even USB 3.0 will drop it from its SATA 6.0 GB/ps to 5 GB/ps (optimistically). It will probably drop it down to 4 or 3 GB/ps just for connecting it to a SATA -> USB connector. Plug it into the motherboard and use it as an internal drive. Sheesh.

Rosewill RX81U-AT-25A Rigid aluminum 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's a sturdy external enclosure that can take a few drops. And yes, it fits a 2.5" drive snugly. If a review says "AAAHHH it doesn't fit!!!" they probably ordered the wrong size. Or forgot to take the anchor screws out of the sides of the HDD.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For some reason it has 2 USB ports. I'm not sure if they're strictly necessary for added power consumption... it works fine with only one port plugged in...

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's pretty hard to get RAM wrong. This is fast and works flawlessly in my 2011 MacBook Pro 13". If other reviews say "its the wrong size! blalalalalaa!" they probably forgot to look at the instruction manual for their computer before ordering it.
I have been using it for over a year and have had no problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I guess the price tag on this is 80.00? I purchased it at 35.00, and that wasn't a black Friday deal. Wait for it to go on sale by some Newegg Promotion or something before spending more than you have to.
