This review is from: MSI 760GM-P34 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: none so far it was DOA when I got it
Cons: DOA on arrival
Other Thoughts: Very disappointed that newegg will let dead boards be sold on their site. Mine def had been used before and was a repackaged return or something similar. Have built over 500 rigs and know what to look for and mine had the signs along with the fact that someone re-sealed the anti static bag.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AeroCool V12XT Controller, Panel
Pros: Looks amazing after I cut out and put it in a section of the clear display window. Very bright & colorful
Cons: Actual fan controller is a piece and worse than Hong Kong knockoff, but display is better than knock off
Other Thoughts: Not as big as you think when looking at ad, basically a small fan controller plus pretty colors. Not worth the price at all. I've got a different one I paid $20 on the bay from Hong Kong that looks as cool and does all the sameREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: The pros are simple-
1) Boots up laptop in 11 seconds compared to 36 seconds with 7200rpm HDD,
2) truly reads at almost 550mb and writes at 500mb. This was after running 4 tests with 4 different types of software.
3) 240GB for $100? ($10 coupon special on TDIRECT) I had to do a double take. Drives with this size and these specs usually are twice as much.
4) compared to the other person who left a review above me, I am having no problems at all and my drives all read 99%. Hopefully he knew to turn off SuperFetch, Windows Search, Hibernation, make sure his TRIM is on, turn your power settings to high and do all the other OS tweaks needed to run your SSD correctly. All it would take it to run or have your OS run disk defragmenter or defraggler once to make you lose a bunch of life on the drive.
Cons: The only cons I can give are similar to what another person wrote. Sandisk SSD's don't come with a 3.5" desktop slot caddy which means no SATA or power adapters to easily hook up to your desktop. But I can't lower the rating for that because out of the 12 different solid state drive manufacturers I've bought drives from, only about 4 include ALL that stuff. I mean Samsung includes the best DATA MIGRATION program with there SSD's so cloning your old hard drive to that Samsung is the easiest SSD to set up. None of the other companies drives come with anything like that for normal price except maybe Intel. But even Intel's software for that doesn't work as easy.
Other Thoughts: Basically I would tell everyone you know who complains about there slow computer to buy one of these and change their life! Dropping one of these into any desktop running a regular mechanical hard drive will increase the speed 10 fold instantly! Even if you have a desktop or laptop with only like 2GB of ram, adding this drive will make you forget about needing anymore ram. I mean I'm not a salesperson for Sandisk or anything. My Samsung 840 Evo's are better SSD's because they came with the data migration software which was basically click and send and your entire old hard drive is now ready to use on your new Samsung ssd and they have a way better warranty. I am just surprised at the price drop and thought for sure when I checked the speeds of the Sandisk it was going to give me 250mb's read and write speeds but that wasn't the case. It actually lived up to spec which I think is cool for a cheaper ssd.READ FULL REVIEW
