Pros: Great SSD for price to performance ratio. Good read/write speeds for the price.
Cons: Mine died after 6 months, it happens sometimes with electronics. However I was very upset with Crucial Customer Service. I emailed them 3 times with no response, so after about a week and a half I finally called customer service. The customer service agent was very nice and courteous, but she explained she did not see any email inquiries from me in their system (I am sure the emails I sent went through because I received email confirmation stating that someone would be back with me soon). That isn't the reason I am upset, that was just a little frustrating, but no big deal. What I am really upset about is Crucial's Warranty replacement. WHen I sent my defective drive in (only about 6 months old when it died), they sent me a Manufacturer Refurbished SSD. I was very upset about this. To Crucial's credit though, it does state in their Warranty terms that they can repair or replace at their option or provide a refurbished replacement something to that extent. Well that's what I received, I warranty replacement refurbished model. Now I could understand if my warranty was almost up, or it was user neglect or misuse, however I have never had a company replace a defective unit with a refurbished one, especially at only 6 months old. Very upsetting. I contacted customer service to ask them about this, and the agent said that is stated in their warranty replacement that they could replace a defective unit with a refurbished one and wasn't willing to work with me at all, even though I explained it was only 6 months old and that the SSD wasn't abused or had any user interference to cause the SSD to malfunction. Needless to say, I am very unhappy with their replacement policy when the unit is under warranty.
Other Thoughts: This is a great SSD for the price/performance, however be cautious of their warranty terms, chances are if you have a defective Crucial SSD as I have, they will replace it with a manufacturer refurbished SSD. Maybe this might not bother some people, however it really upset me. After only 6 months my brand new drive failed and they replace it with a Manufacturer refurbished SSD. Not happy. Still I give it 4 Eggs as it is a good SSD for the price, but minus an egg for their Warranty replacement.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This CPU is amazing for the price. Running at 4.0GHz it stays extremely cool, even when using Intel's Turbo technology and running it at 4.4GHz it still remains cool, even cooler with a good heatsink solution. I have not tried to overclock this CPU yet, however I am sure you can achieve good overclocking with this CPU.
Other Thoughts: Excellent CPU for the Price, very happy with it!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow Edition (VN10006W2N) White and Black SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans - 1 x 200mm Colorshift side fan, 1 x 200mm Colorshift top fan
Pros: Plenty of space for GPU's, large heatsinks, as well as other hardware. Hot-swappable drives, 3 different LED'sm plenty of USB ports, an eSATA port, 4 5.25' drive bays as well as one 3.5' drive bay. Locking mechanism with keys, great airflow.
Cons: Mostly Plastic, as an owner of the Original Thermaltake Level 10, this is quite a step down, but it's also about $700 cheaper.
A couple things I am disappointed with is the blue strip on the bottom and top of the case does not light up, also when you use different LED colors, you still have the unlighted Blue strip on the case and the power button is always blue, which I believe when you change led fan colors, the power button's color should change as well (Colors are red, blue, green, and different configurations of colors and patters). The disk drive trays are very thin and feel cheap as they are only thin plastic. Also I wish that each drive bay would have a small LED as the original Thermaltake Level 10 has so you can visually see which drive bays have HDD's or SSD's in them.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a tremendous case for the price. If you cannot afford a $900 Thermaltake Level 10, but want a case with a unique design and plenty of drive bays, HDD bays, plenty of room for hardware and excellent airflow, then the Thermaltake Level 10 GT may be the case for you.READ FULL REVIEW
