This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: $90 after rebate which I'm waiting on. Regular hard dives are dead! SSD's ROCK!
Cons: None so far. 3 year warranty. Should be 5 since these are supposed to be more reliable.
Other Thoughts: Waited for the prices to come down but now wonder why I waited so long! What an amazing upgrade to my old laptop with a 5400 rpm HD and WIN XP. I did this SSD and a Win 7 upgrade and everything went smooth and easy! My first SSD instal and it was easy. Just upgraded my home comp as well with the same SSD from a decent 7200 rpm drive. Difference is night and day! I googled on how to install and had no problems at all!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Gift Game - Star Trek Online Game & Borg In-Game Items
Pros: Was free with my Logitech mouse purchase.
Cons: Lame. Waste of everything that was used to produce this garbage and send.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price and name. Tried to build a nice machine for around $1k with a monitor, keyboard and mouse and succeeded. Still have room to add a decent video card if needed. So far.. the integrated graphics are working fine. Not a gaming comp but could be if I added a mid range vid card. The PC P&C modular MKIII 400 is a bit better and adds a little extra power. But this Corsair is powering this system quite well! Customer is not a gamer and just wanted a fast comp that will last.
Cons: None really for the price.
