Pros: Fast and firmware upgrade was easy (used another computer prior to installing windows). On AHCI windows experience should be around 7.4 if you have less your running this SSD on IDE mode. Works great in tandem with conventional spindel drive.
Cons: BSOD after sleep still not fixed. I've had these issues with prior SSD drives from OCZ and well it's still not fixed! My fix? Well more like a bandaid approach. Turned off sleep/hibernate and just shut down the computer (or leave it on). After all reboot takes a whole 15 seconds or so on ivybridge.
Other Thoughts: Not my first and certainly not my last SSD. Overall I'm satisfied especially at $55. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for a laptop though, simply because of the sleep issues I've had with OCZ drives. If you want assured performance I'd still buy Intel, sorry ocz but fix your firmware! My older OCZ ssd runs great 24/7 for months at a time for the last 2 years now, just the sleep never works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this to replace a now dead Nvidia quadro card for my xw4400. The computer is primarily used for video trans coding and office work, so this card has never been used for gaming(par from solitaire and sudoku). Great bang for the buck card if you need a replacement for aging hardware or require a second card for a quad monitor setup.
Cons: The only nag I have about the product was the registration process for the card. Inside the box is a code and to download the newest drivers from their site it requires you to enter this giant code in order to get up to date drivers from their website. That's not what I call customer service.
Other Thoughts: Runs 2x 19" @ 1280x1024 over DVI. No screen tearing or artefact's.Quiet compared to old quadro card but not silent. Also works with many popular software titles for GPGPU.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet! The drive is more restraint than my old 1TB WD black drives. Price/GB is phenomenal bought on sale for $109, $89 with MIR. By far the cheapest 2TB 7200rpm drive around. Kudos to newegg, drive arrived the next day with standard shipping.
Cons: No sata cable included. Be sure to order one if you buy this! Should be a called a bulk drive not retail because of this (drive even arrived in a box with an installation manual and screws).
Formatting a drive this size takes hours. Complete format of this new drive took approximately 7 hours.
Other Thoughts: I wish I could take half an egg off for the missing sata cable, but since that's not possible I'll give it a 4/5. Drive itself is quiet and runs cool.READ FULL REVIEW
