Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Well rounded and affordable 512GB SSD. Price/Performance winner...

Cloning process from 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 was fast and painless thanks to the Acronis 2014 software included.

The MX100 feels much smoother in Windows being random read/write iops are much better vs the Sandforce 2281 based OCZ drive.

Previously with the Vertex 3 @ 40% full it scored 710 in AS SSD vs the 1036 of the MX100. Much of the difference is 4K. People need to ignore sequential R/W's and pay more attention to 4K incompressible scores... this is what makes the Windows environment much smoother and responsive.

Cons: Crucial still has yet to release software for their drives esp. for reading their proprietary SMART attributes.

Other Thoughts: Software isn't that big of a deal as long as TRIM is enabled and hibernation is off in Windows. Good idea to disable Superfetch in Services as well. Pagefile, Indexing and Search are all preference and I opt to keep them running...

Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 (59359560) Gaming Laptop Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD Dual NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M SLI 2GB 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very capable gamer/multimedia laptop. I added a 120GB Intel 525 mSATA and was gonna add in some ADATA XPG Gaming Series 8GB 1.35v 1600MHz RAM AXDS1600GC4G9-2 but never got around to it being I traded it away.

The speakers put out the sound!

The GT 650m's had an ASIC of 84/86%. This is good = faster speeds, lower voltage = cooler and quieter.

Cons: Touchpad had tracking issues sometimes.

Other Thoughts: Note to adding RAM to laptops. Most laptops come with proprietary bios so there are no settings for DRAM, just note if you want to run 1600MHz + speeds be sure to get memory that is tested at stated speeds @ 1.35v. Or the bios will default to 1333MHz.

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011048-WW) Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Cube Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent for cable management. I really like the way the PSU is hidden...

Cons: Plasticky... (is that even a word?)

Other Thoughts: Needs more 3.5" bays. Seriously...
