SanDisk Ultra II 2.5

1 out of 5 eggs Unreliable Product - Horrible Customer Service 12/21/2015

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra II 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDHII-480G-G25

Pros: - Makes a great drink coaster when it inevitably fails on you

Cons: - Cheap unreliable garbage
- Terrible customer service / satisfaction

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive in late 2014 excited to be stepping up to an SSD for my OS. All was well until August this year when the drive mysteriously crashed overnight. I contacted Sandisk and they approved the RMA. 2 1/2 weeks and 3 windows installs later, I was back to a functioning computer. Fast forward 90 days and the replacement garbage crashes! Pretty upset, I contacted Sandisk again, only this time I was treated poorly by customer service... After providing copious amounts of data and proof the drive had actually broken AGAIN, they approved the RMA and decided to upgrade me to the PRO edition of their drives. This tells me that they are aware of their defective product and were upgrading me to keep me happy. I immediately sent out my drive. They received shipment on NOV. 23rd. After 3 weeks and hearing nothing, I contacted them to inquire what the hell was going on. Their website states to allow 2-3 days after they received the shipment to acknowledge the product. 3 weeks and they hadn't changed the status until I contacted them and lit them up. They FINALLY issued shipping information on 12/14/15... as of today (12/21/15) I still have no drive and have been 5 weeks without my main computer. I contacted them again just before I wrote this review and they had nothing to say to me except that I needed to wait for my drive. They gave me the shipping number which IS NOT FOUND on the USPS website. I asked why they didn't ship my package priority given this was an escalated case... I was met with "you just need to wait for your package to be delivered". I will NEVER buy another Sandisk product, and I urge you to steer clear of them. Their cheap products will let you down.

Antec SpotCool Blue LED System Cooler

4 out of 5 eggs What a great specialty fan 04/22/2014

This review is from: Antec SpotCool Blue LED System Cooler

Pros: A great versatile cooling element!
- Great build quality
- Rotating head
- Great accent lighting
- Pretty darn quiet even on HI.

Cons: - The neck doesn't support its on weight when mounted level or above fan head. (see comments below for fix!)

Other Thoughts: I don't understand a comment left on this product.
1. The light is WAY to bright.
- I hope you have your fan facing the appropriate way, the "exhaust" side of the fan is where the LED lights are. They cascade a pleasing glow on my MOBO, not in my face.

Fix:
While it would have been nice to see the build quality of the neck a little higher, its nothing a little extra MOD can't fix. All I did was snip a piece of wire clothes hanger and sheath it in electrical tape around the neck. This added the extra rigidity it needed to mount my fan diagonally down. Takes 5 extra minutes. But because I had to do this, I deducted 1 egg.

Use:
I use this fan to spray cooler air on my memory chips, north bridge, and south bridge. It is a bonus that is also breezes across my Corsair H60 heat sink and socket. I attribute this fan to lowering my bridge temps at least 10%.

Rosewill RFX-120 - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan - Black Frame with Red Fan Blades, 2-Ball Bearing, Silent, 2-Speed with PWM Control
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Amazing value!
- Not crazy loud on full blast. But im not overly sensitive to this.
- NIce construction
- Moves plenty of air
- Multiple connections for power

Cons: These units come with A LOT of wires. (see comments)

Other Thoughts: I received these fans and went right to work using them in for a push/pull configuration on my Corsair H60 closed loop cooler. These fans come with lots of extra wires. I setup my case and started to lay out wire management. Basically, I tied the wires together that were going to be routed inside the case. I then "sheathed" the tied wire in electrical tape to give them a more pleasing look and manageable use. With a little extra work, my case still looks great and I am using the speed dials.
