Pros: Performs as advertised
Running 5.05 firmware, not the 506/521 version
Quiet, cool like a ssd should
Cons: None for this specific drive.
- 1 egg for needing to worry if I got a high quality or dumpster quality drive.
Other Thoughts: No costumer should ever have to guess what product they will receive when they order something. If you bought this drive and received the 506/521 version (you can check the product code), return it and say this is not the product you purchased. Demand a full refund. There's this technical support going around answering people's reviews telling you that it runs fine on ATTO benchmark. Well, that doesn't mean anything and shouldn't be used as a standard. ATTO isn't a good indicator of real life applications - think of it as a marketing ploy to advertise "full" speeds.
Bottom line is the 506/521 models are lower quality drives. Don't be fooled by Kingston's costumer service feeding you an unrealistic nonsensical indicator of actual real life drive performance. Get 100% bang for your buck.
-1 egg for company dishonesty and causing extra worry about drive quality.
Pros: When I buy bought this card, I was a bit skeptical. The card's price dropped from $269.99 or $259.99 to $239.99 and had another $40 MIR. Why would they sell a Geforce GTX 760 for $200? This card must have something wrong with it for it to drop that much!
Fast forward a month and I'm loving this thing. It might not have dedicated on card cooling like the MSI Hawk or MSI Gaming, Gigabyte or EVGA variants, but when I'm saving $30 - $60 on your graphic card, I can spend $10 for another fan if I wanted to (I don't need to).
Doesn't run too hot (I own the Antec 900 so airflow is really good) ~55-60C under load for a few day. Idles around 27C, probably can knock it down more if I install another fan.
Just loving this thing especially with the deal I got for it!

This review is from: MSI Z87M-G43 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Provides everything an entry level board should have. Is definitely military class toughness (hey it didn't break when I touched it right :D).
Love the MSI software with this board, and probably one of the reasons why I got it.
Cons: Wished they designed the USB 3.0 facing upward, it would have made plugging the USB 3.0 plug into my case a little less tricky. Bent the connectors the first time around and had to straighten it out with a plier (lol).
Other Thoughts: It's a great board. If it goes on sale again, definitely buy it!READ FULL REVIEW
