Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive
Decently fast
Tried-and-true SF2200 chipset

Cons: Time will tell as to firmware reliability and support

Other Thoughts: Purchased three of these a few months ago when they came out. Finally got around to installing them. I cloned three 500GB drives from Lenovo Thinkcentre M92 workstations with Acronis TrueImage 2014 booting from USB.

All three SSD's have been running solid for a month, all have around 70GB free since most files are stored on a NAS at this particular client.

Reliability is my primary concern and I normally stick to Crucial and Intel, but I ran the costs past them and even if these SSD's fail, no data is stored on them, so it's a test-case for me to see if I can trust these in the future. Hopefully I can. Mushkin is a great company and I don't think they'd put their name on junk. I've used their memory for 15 years going back to SDRAM.

Delta AFC1212D-PWM 120mm Case cooler with TAC sensor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Loud and proud 01/13/2015

This review is from: Delta AFC1212D-PWM 120mm Case cooler with TAC sensor

Pros: Moves a LOT of air
Very high quality, metal motor housing, thick power wiring.
Probably very reliable

Cons: Creates a pulsating "clicking" even at low speeds.
Minimum fan speed is around 900RPM and moves virtually no air at this speed, while still pulsing a noise.

Other Thoughts: It's important to point out this is a server chassis fan. It doesn't belong in a home or office PC. It will simply create too much mechanical noise. At full speed I can hear it from my office through two sets of doors in the server closet, it's almost as loud as a vacuum cleaner. Fortunately this fan will rarely ever hit 20% with our workload.

Buy accordingly!

PLEXTOR Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA  Burner Drive PX-891SAW - OEM
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Regarding Keith L post 01/08/2015

This review is from: PLEXTOR Duplication Grade DVD/CD SATA Burner Drive PX-891SAW - OEM

Pros: I have the Asus version of this drive, and can rate it 5 stars based on its performance:

Excellent price
Reads scratched discs well (error correction)
Classic bezel design

Cons: Is price $5 more than the Asus model, which is identical.

Other Thoughts: Keith L seems to think he knows more than he actually does. While his analysis of copying digital data is partially true, he has forgotten or simply doesn't know about two important factors when coping this type of data.

Have you ever wondered why some programs, specifically CD audio ripping programs, recommend copying at a lower speed? Error correction.

This is an inherent feature of the drives firmware and the quality\condition of the laser. A good firmware will have efficient error correction and isolation\retry arithmetic. THIS COULD BE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ASUS AND PLEXTOR MODEL. I don't know if it is, but if a reviewer wrote he believes one model produced better results than the other, this could be why.
