OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX50G.RF 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Breathes new life into older systems. Impossible to beat for the price.

Cons: 50gb is enough for an OS but not much else. You will need another hard drive for data. Took me multiple tries to get it to boot properly, had to keep trying different SATA ports (pretty sure this is my motherboard's problem)

Other Thoughts: I bought a refurb 60GB Vertex 2 a year ago for my HTPC and it has been great. Picked up 2 of these 50GB's for some other systems. One was an easy upgrade, the other I had to reinstall Windows just could not make the thing boot properly from a cloned image. Afternoon wasted, but that's ok, fresh install probably preferrable anyway.

BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Plastic but does the job 10/31/2013

This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure

Pros: Lets you mount 2 x 2.5" SSD's in a single 3.5" bay. Comes with screws. Cheaper than what I paid! (5.99 each from my local large big box electronic store)

Cons: Plastic, but should be ok. A little tricky to use with drive bays in my Antec Sonata series cases but I found a way (details below).

Other Thoughts: So I have two Antec Sonata cases... the original Sonata 1 and a new Sonata Proto. They both use the same kind of removable hard drive bays. It's a little tricky to use these adapters because the bottom screw holes are not threaded, they just give you some screws and you force them in. The screws provided are smaller than the holes on the Sonata drive bay. First, remove the rubber grommits on the drive bay, SSDs don't vibrate so no concern there. Then I used the included screws to thread the holes, then switched to a larger screw with a much larger head to mount to the bay. You could also use washers if you have some handy. Or I suppose you could use double sided tape to secure the adapter to the drive bay too, I didn't think of that until after the fact.

5 out of 5 eggs Works fine. Inexpensive. 08/31/2013

This review is from: Coboc 3 ft. High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet - HDMI Male to Male (Black)

Pros: Does the job, works fine and not too long.

Cons: 3 feet may not be enough, measure first. Not really a con if you are trying to cut down on cable clutter.
