SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD250BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Purchased two of these for a couple office computers. Tired of people complaining their systems were slow while having to hear their hard drives grind away. Installed in a new system with an AMD FM2 / A8 build and it's ridiculously fast! You can't beat the price for performance right now with the 840 series SSDs. I still won't touch a sandforce chipset SSD... no thank you!

Cons: Didn't come with latest firmware installed, very easy to update though.

Other Thoughts: VERY IMPORTANT - First thing though I hooked them up to another PC and updated the firmware! Download the Magician software and it's just a couple clicks to get it done.

5 out of 5 eggs Solid Metal 04/06/2013

This review is from: VANTEC HDA-250M 2.5" to 3.5" Mounting Kit

Pros: Unlike some of the other brackets that are cheap plastic, this one is solid metal that has been coated a black texture. Sure it's overkill for a SSD but I would prefer something that lasts rather than six months from now having to replace it because it broke.

All screws are also included (both to mount the SSD and to mount to your case).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It can be a little tight getting things to align properly because of the coating, but not a big issue.

AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W AD560KWOHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7560D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent price for performance point. Paired this CPU with an ASRock FM2A75 Pro4 motherboard and it's been running flawlessly. Included CPU fan is fine if you are not overclocking.

Cons: I only wish prices wouldn't keep dropping so fast on processors!

Other Thoughts: Built an office PC with this CPU, it's probably way overkill but at least now it will be another 5+ years before needing another upgrade.
