Pros: Great speeds, great bargain, easy install, writes and loads pretty quick, only takes 20 seconds to boot up Windows 7 Home 64 bit.
Cons: Now the cons. Random freezes, motherboard has a hard time detecting the drive sometime. Cables are all solidly connected but still experiencing random freezes.
No 3.5" - 2.5" tray adapter.
Other Thoughts: This is the first SSD I came across that is starting to show random behavior, such as not being detected by the motherboard and freezing at random moments.
This is installed in a office computer with basic Microsoft Office, and Adobe Acrobat Pro. Little to none video watching or editing for that matter. It just freezes and Windows automatically reboots. One word sums it up = Weird.
I thought it was the SATA cable being funky, but that's not the case. At this moment, I don't know if it's the SSD directly or the SATA cable. I will be changing the SATA cable to a better one soon and see if that will solve this unfortunate problem.
A shame really. Crucial has always treated me well. Guess my luck ran out on this one.
I will provide an update soon.
This review is from: G.SKILL 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model FF-TSDG32GN-C10
Pros: Reads quick, loads quick, and writes quick. Does what I expect it to do. Reliable and does when used in harsh conditions.
Cons: None so far other than being so small, it can be lost easily.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade the storage capacity for my dashcam. Needed a bigger card so that it will save a full day's worth of video recording in my daily drive. Worse thing that can happen is when crucial recordings gets recorded over due to lack of space in the card. This is a great bargain for its performance and space capacity.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great BIOS menu. Very straight-forward where even a beginner will start to feel like a superstar builder. Easy to work with and has decent amount of features that a higher end board will have. USB 3.0 / SATA 6 is a big plus.
Cons: Not enough 3-pin connectors for fans. Only has two. One for the CPU and one case fan. Everything else is A-OK.
Other Thoughts: Got this board for an another build since I was pleased with the first. Very straight forward and easy to work with. The BIOS menu is easy to navigate around and can overclock your CPUs easily. Just know what you're doing or your motherboard will lock and you will just have a blank screen. Which means, you will have to reset it and the location of the CMOS battery and jumpers helps you over come that mistake you made when you were feeling a bit adventurous.READ FULL REVIEW
