This review is from: Patriot Pyro 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PP120GS25SSDR
Pros: I read a few reviews, switched sata controller to ahci, pc installed win7 and ran great. I had to do a search on how to activate the trim feature in win7. Got trim working, have had no problems I did not do a firmware update, have it downloaded but since it seemed to work just fine I figured id wait and see if I had a problem. crysis 2 games load a whole lot quicker. In general like the drive, only 2 1/2 weeks ago it cost me 174$ now $120 after rebates considering buying a 2nd to restore and back up to.
Cons: I noticed it didnt come with a mounting plate after my order was placed so improvised a little mounting it. SSD 's just seem a little high in price for the capacity, but figured Id try one.
Other Thoughts: asus m4a87td usb3

8 gig g skill ripjaws 1333 mhz ddr3 memory
amd phenom 2 970 quad core
thermaltake toughpower 750 psu
win7 64 bit home premium
1tb seagate barracuda
this system was a fairly budget build considering how it performs. I would buy this drive again.
This review is from: NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit High Performance Desktop Switch (GS608)
Pros: very fast, I had been running 10-100 and it took me about 8 minutes to copy a 4.5 gig movie iso from my multimedia server box to my main pc now it takes about a minute and a half. I will admit though the machine im copying to Is very fast (9850 quad) and copying from main machine to multimedia box is roughly half as fastas it is a slower pc (socket 939 x2 4200) so I know the hardware is what is making the difference but I still consider 2 and a half minutes to transfer a dvd Image blazing fast compared to what im used to with 10-100
Cons: none yet
Other Thoughts: basically this switch will be as fast as the hardware in your pc can run , yes the bottleneck will be hardware not your networkREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have had this drive a little over a week now and its doing great. I wish all the bad reviews said if it failed in a raid array or as a single drive. Of all the hard drives Ive had all seagate or western digital I had my first failure and it was a western digital drive that failed.
Cons: I havent found any cons yet, but I will say that I was very nervous about ordering this drive after reading alot of bad reviews on here.
Other Thoughts: I wish people leaving bad reviews would give more information about their configuration of the system the drive failed in. Im running mine as a single drive storing a bunch of dvd iso's and my mp3s etc about 375 gig right now with great results, but I do have the data on this drive on my other machine also so im not really risking losing all my data.READ FULL REVIEW
