Plextor M3 Series 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: FAST!!! High IOPS...higher than Crucial M4. Faster write speed than Crucial M4. 5-year warranty. True Speed technology + TRIM = MUCH longer speed degradation.
512 mb DDR3 Buffer cache!
Has Marvel 9174 controller, which is better than SandForce.

Cons: Expensive! Other than that, None!

Other Thoughts: Plextor M3S, Crucial M4, and intel 510 are pretty much the best right now.

SilverStone HDDBOOST HDD Accessory
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Horrible 10/09/2010

This review is from: SilverStone HDDBOOST HDD Accessory

Pros: It makes application loading fast. I admit it.
But I can't get any SSD speed in ANY benchmarks applications (HD Tune, HD Tune Pro, CrystalDiskMark, ATTO Benchmark)
Windows 7 loading time is fast.

Cons: My 1st HDDBOOST failed. My PC couldn't detect it whatsoever.
And sometimes upon turning on the system, system checkdisk will run automatically and detect some problems and correct them.
I think whenever system can't detect HDDBOOST, it'll break some parts of your regular HDD.

I requested a replacement, and now my 2nd HDDBOOST is also acting the same thing. System cannot detect it.

Updating the firmware is also a headache. I can't update the firmware AT ALL. It always fails. It'll say something like "writing error" or "SPI erase fails." and always like that.

I'm returning this back and never use it again. Not good for your HDD!!!

Other Thoughts: NONE

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) DirectX 11 015-P3-1480-AR 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's FAST. Faster than 5870 and so close to 5970 or sometimes even faster than 5970 if u OC this beast to around 850 core. I can run Crysis DX10 VERY HIGH settings and get more fps than GTX 285 SLI.

Cons: It's expensive and hot.

Other Thoughts: Corsair Obsidian 800d
Core i7 930
Asus P6X58D Premium
GTX 480 (main)
GTX 260 SP216 (Physx)
OCZ 6 GB DDR3 1600
Xonar DX
