This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD500KW 2.5" 500GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: High density and no longer needing to use platter RAID-0 drives for scratch disc for the size and performance I needed.
Cons: Price but since I bought this on sale it's really a null and void issue!
Other Thoughts: I have this unit married up with an Apricorn adapter and it's excellent! I have traditionally used Intel drives over the last four years and I'll tell you first hand buy Samsung drives and you'll not be disappointed!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I upgraded to this from a GTX 480 and this upgrade is very noticeable, the card idles low around 27c and I usually don't see anything above 55c but I do have a custom fan profile set. Price is not that steep but mid-range users may be hesitant. However you are getting a real value for what this card can deliver and not to forget a back plate, 3D-Mark and Primal Rage for Steam!
Other Thoughts: Running this on a X58 platform with no problems!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APRICORN VEL-SOLO Velocity Solo - SSD Upgrade Kit for Desktop Computers
Pros: Allows you to avoid cable clutter in your case and have a standalone drive on your PCI-E lane.
Cons: None everyone who complained about this product has no idea about what they bought. You are basically making a Reo Drive for much cheaper and you get to pick the capacity. Older boards may not take advantage of the bandwidth available; however, I tested this out on PCI-E 1X slot and it still pulled over 200MB's!
Other Thoughts: Case and point this adapter works perfectly long as you know what configuration you want to run. It can do mechanical and solid state drives. If you want a standalone media drive then buy a 2.5 hard drive and done, if you want a fast standalone boot up drive then go SSD!READ FULL REVIEW
