Adaptec Series 7 2274500-R 71605ESinglePCI-Express 3.0 x8 Low Profile SATA / SAS RAID Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: You might get decent performance for a few weeks

Cons: Absolutely terrible product, a nightmare. Intermittently, the web software, which is the worst authored product of its kind I've seen, fails to detect the card. Write performance with SSDs took a nosedive in a few months all the way down to 5mb/s random 10-20mb sequential. Array was showing degraded during POST but the MaxView software showed that it was fine. Stay away.

ASUS MB168B+ Silver / Black 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A good value. 1920x1080 in a small form factor. Single cable.

Cons: If you are sensitive to input lag, go with a HDMI interface instead. Even on 3.0, the USB driver lags mouse and keyboard input slightly. I found that it slowed me down enough to not want to use this panel for primary activities, using it more as a reference material monitor.

1 out of 5 eggs Killed my SSD and Bluray drive 04/24/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR CX-M series CX500M 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply

Pros: Came in a nice box

Cons: Bought a new case and this PSU and added a working Bluray drive and Vertex 2 SSD. Wouldn't boot with everything connected. Started removing components, got just the mainboard/ram to boot OK, determined it wouldn't boot with both the Bluray and the SSD plugged in oddly enough. Tried a different PSU and they both powered up fine. Went back to the Corsair and double checked all the connections. Next boot, smelled burning from my Bluray. Also noticed the power LED on my Vertex wasn't lit. Tested components in another machine and they are definitely dead now. Not sure what recourse I have, but this PSU is killing components and has cost me hundreds. Never had a problem like this before in over a hundred builds. Look elsewhere.
