Pros: You get what you pay for - which is a good thing.
Cons: Yet to make set-up work. (See other thoughts.)
Other Thoughts: I need to use a cable like this so my kid's Playstation 2 (I got second-hand) can be hooked to a computer monitor I got on C's List. The monitor has a component input, DVI and VGA - that's it. Sony designed the PS2 so you need to set up component output in the menu to get a picture. Well, OK, so if I can't see the menu because I have no picture...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Toshiba Q Series 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) HDTS212XZSTA
Other Thoughts: I got this as an OEM plain white box on sale. Installation hung up, and I tried formatting using a HHD dock on an up-and-running PC. I returned the defective drive and its replacement also can't format. I've done dozens of Linux installs, and a fair number with a SSD. Only once before did I run into issues, with a Mushkin drive, and its replacement worked fine. Even a cheap SanDisk SSD has been working well (albeit for just 6 weeks to date). Toshiba seems to ship junk out their doors.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Two of these went into a HAF 912 perfectly, and run dead silent. Besides the 120mm exhaust fan the case came with, there's only these and a 14cm side fan (with a SilverStone dust filter - the HAF 912 filters all other intakes) as far as case cooling goes. A 4790K CPU (with a 912 EVO) and R9 270X GPU, etc. just don't get hot in there. It quietly does the job even when editing and converting video files. Silence and performance = having my cake and eating it too.
Cons: Like most makes, these come with chrome-colored screws. Cooler Master themselves mostly puts out black cases, and a simple but nice asthetic touch is to not draw attention to the fan's mounting screws. They should package these with black screws. What would it cost 'em? A few pennies?
Other Thoughts: The HAF 912 came with braces that fit perfectly in the front 20cm fan. You can see it's intended to receive one of these there in most assemblies. If you order a HAF 912, don't hesitate to get at least one Cooler Master 20cm fan too.READ FULL REVIEW
