This review is from: HyperX FURY 2.5" 240GB SATA III SSD - Cloud9 Edition SHFS37A-Z/240G
Pros: Decent size. With a base OS install and "core applications" you can still fit a few high-consumption apps or programs on here.
Cons: It wasn't 250GB?
Other Thoughts: Got a great deal on this, so no worries. It's a drive, it holds data. It's SATA3.
I've seen a few reviews that go on about how it's slower read/write in XYZ benchmark. In real world use, you couldn't tell the difference between this drive and one for $50 more for the same price. Those faster benches seriously don't mean shaving 2-3 seconds off of boot time; we're talking 14ms.
TLDR; Good drive, works well, and will run anything you need for a great price.
This review is from: EVGA 100-N1-0400-L1 400W continuous power supply
Cons: No power switch.
Other Thoughts: This really puzzled me, I've never encountered a PSU that did not have a power switch directly on the box. It's a great PSU, so a pretty minor point...
But no direct cut off is bad in a few different ways.
However, it's EVGA, inexpensive, and will probably last longer than the person I built the computer for. One thing I admire about EVGA, they never cheap out on their stuff. This thing was solidly built, passed the system burn-in, and will be able to power more than what's in the system I built currently, for a fraction of the price of some others.
Pros: Very inexpensive.
Cons: Heat spreader in two pieces, seems glued to the side? I don't see any cons to cheap, workable memory.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, for the price doing a cheap build for a relative, this was perfect. Posted, booted and works fast enough for most applications. No frills, saves the bills.READ FULL REVIEW
