Transcend 8GB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Works well but... 07/22/2010

This review is from: Transcend 8GB 2.5" PATA SLC Industrial Solid State Disk TS8GSSD25-S

Pros: SLC
Reputable manufacturer
High quality
Web support--not that I needed any
Makes XP fly and do tricks, no configuration required

Cons: Small
Expensive for only 8 gigs
Newegg Shipping

Other Thoughts: I could have bought another brand and wait for it to come from China but I thought--pay a little more and Newegg will deliver in days. Err try weeks! Ground shipping from Los Angeles? Are you kidding? It took 5 whole days to get to Seattle. Then the border. Then Vancouver to Toronto on some truck took another 5 days. Then local delivery with stops in between for donuts. I will be receiving another SSD from a supplier here in the Canadian wilderness and its out for delivery here after only two days. Paid way less too! C'mon Newegg, you make China look good!

ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs An oldie but a goodie 08/06/2009

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: All copper, looks awesome, cools like nobody's business. Temps in celsius went down 12 degrees over stock cooler from 60 under 100% load to 48 and now my phenom 940 idles in the mid 30's.

Cons: Took the mobo out to install when really am2+ installs of this thing are not nearly as hard as Intel. I wish I had known that. Never did cut myself, but my son did. Sharp fins, though young son was a little too quick to do things. I have heard that Asus am2+ motherboards make you want to install the thing so that it blows straight up in your case. I have an Antic 300 case so this was not a problem because there is a case fan on top as well as at the rear and the power supply is at the bottom of the case. The instructions for how you get it to blow to the back of your case when the am2+ socket is seated vertically are silly. (so glad I didn't do what they suggested) So it blows straight up instead of to the rear--hot air rises right? But maybe you might not like this if there is no fan at the top of your case and an Asus am2+ install is what you are doing.

Other Thoughts: The price is a little high but if you like the look of it and you always wanted a Zalman this will not disappoint.

OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P8004GK
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great price even without a rebate--even better with one. Drop it in and it goes and goes. Prime95 torture test no errors after hours. Great warranty. OCZ ram is often your best bang for the buck. Oh, looks great too.

Cons: The rebate thing is a pain. I get feeling guilty when I don't send it in and yet when I do decide to do it--it takes so much time to apply for one...

Other Thoughts: OCZ is a brand that I look at first for everything they sell. Tends to compete well in the "best bang for the buck category." Oh and one more thing--I sent an email about a problem I was having with applying for a rebate and I got a reply THE SAME DAY! And it was not a computer generated reply either--way to go OCZ!!
