Pros: High read/write speeds for the price ($60.00USD on sale :) Boots Windows nearly as fast as my Evo's and M6 with the same hardware configuration... Thin design makes it great for laptops with narrow hard drive bays.
Cons: Only real "con" I can think of, is the weight of the drive itself. It has always been my finding that the lighter the hardware, the lower the quality. Although the drive performs very well, the life expectancy could be shorter than my Evo, which is over twice the weight. Not enough of a con to deduct an egg for me though....
Other Thoughts: If you are upgrading a laptop from a spinning drive or upgrading a desktop for everyday use, this budget drive IS your best bet! SanDisk make very good products and have great customer support. Not as fast as the higher end SSD's that are geared toward gaming, but great for home and office use! So far I have owned it for a month and time will tell how long it lasts, but SSD's in general tend to last a long time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)
Pros: Can tell right out of the box this is a quality built keyboard and mouse, with a lot of features. Keyboard is heavy and keystrokes are very smooth. L.E.D's are really bright, looks almost like the keys are floating in a pool. Mouse has very good sensitivity with up to 2000 DPI, can be turned down for people like me who like low sensitivity during games. Not a ton of buttons but the extra ones are multi functional.
Cons: It didn't come in red...., about it!
Other Thoughts: Replaced my Genius K9 after spilling soda on it. Was sad at first because I liked that keyboard so much, but am now happier with this. GREAT for gaming and looks very nice too! Best deal on NewEgg right now!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Good VRM cooling, 2x Pciex16 slots, fancy looking.
Cons: I upgraded to this from a MSI G43-970A to suit my crossfire R9-270x's. The old MSI board was able to run my 4x4gb G. Skill Ripjaws X DDR3-1866 at 1866Mhz. This board however, REFUSES to run them any higher than 1600Mhz. I have tried both XMP's, setting it manually to 1866Mhz, adjusting timings, voltages....Any of these cause the board not to post. I had this same problem with my old Biostar TA970A and was happy that the MSI fixed the problem. Now I am back to the same problem, with a "higher end" board. Also, overclocking is very touchy and the board is rarely stable unless the overclock is minimal. This is odd, as the 990 chipsets are claimed to be "so much better" at overclocking.
Other Thoughts: Will try customer support, but will probably RMA this board for an Asus or another MSI. Seeing it takes two hours to remove all of my connectors, liquid cooling and motherboard, I do not want to keep doing this. If you say the native frequency is 1866mhz, it should run at that!READ FULL REVIEW
