This review is from: Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound
Pros: None that I could benefit from.
Cons: I got this to fix my PS3 with, and the tube was only good for ONE APPLICATION to both CPU's in it. I had to take it apart again because it didn't work the first time, and there wasn't enough left to do it. The big tube it comes in is extremely misleading. Don't be fooled! Went with Arctic Silver this time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've had this drive about 8 months now, installed it new into my then-new Lenovo X220. It is lightning fast and makes for a fantastic system drive that I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate edition on. Many applications including Office 2010 load almost instantly. Highly recommended. Extremely stable and I haven't had a single crash that was related to this drive. It is a great compliment to the included 320GB Seagate standard HD that I use for storage. The system will shut that drive down when it is not in use, resulting in complete system silence.
Cons: None that I can think of! Price, perhaps?
Other Thoughts: As common with Windows, you don't want to do too many sleep cycles between reboots, or funny things will start to happen and crash. For the most part, I can get a good 10 cycles (sleep-wake-sleep-wake, etc) before I need to reboot. When the computer wakes from sleep, it does so almost instantly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a good little box for setting up a homebuilt router. Dual gigabit NICs are a great feature although that speed won't be needed for most internet connections. I got this to install Untangle home router software and it runs great and I've had zero crashes or downtime since it runs 24/7.
Cons: The CPU fan is a little noisier than I had hoped and it does run a bit warm. Also, and this seems to be common with most computer cases..the power LED is obnoxiously bright. A little electrical tape over the button fixed that.
Other Thoughts: I put 2GB RAM in this box. The Untangle software typically uses about ~700mb at any given time, under a small load.READ FULL REVIEW
