Pros: Quiet, powerful, tons of cables to a point it seems almost excessive and reasonably priced. Also really easy to install.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I was really reluctant to buy this PSU at first after looking at quite a few of the other reviews for the PSU arriving DOA or being really noisy. I did however see plenty of other good reviews for it, but still there were enough bad ones that it almost dissuaded me from buying.
I'm really glad I decided to make the purchase because this PSU is way better than my old 550 watt unrated PSU.
I haven't ever bothered with doing SLI, but with this PSU I definitely have the option and will likely be doing it when I can buy my current gfx card for really cheap or when I upgrade my gfx card again.
I got this when it was on sale for $90 with a MIR. Totally worth the price.
This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V573BL 7.1-Channel Network AV Receiver
Pros: 7.1 capable
Decent amount of HDMI ports and some component/avi ports as well for older gen consoles or dvd/vhs players
Not too bulky
YPAO speaker configuration mic (makes configuring the sound super easy!)
Cons: Not sure if it is my speakers or the receiver, but every once in a while I get an audible snapping sound from the speakers almost like the snap of static shock.
There seems to be a buffer for when sound is actually played through the speakers (small but noticeable). When I first turn on my PC, part of the startup sound is chopped off because of it. I also notice it for facebook notifications as well.. shorter sounds tend to get chopped off when there is no signal going to the speakers before it happens.
Network aspect of the receiver doesn't appear to add any value to the receive in my case.
Other Thoughts: Completely happy with the purchase and would recommend Yamaha brand products to anyone looking for motorcycles, audio equipment, etc.
I hear they make pianos too! (haha)
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Speedy read/write speed
Super fast boot if OS is installed on it
Decent capacity for the price
Cons: Price is a lot higher than traditional HDDs but you honestly get what you pay for. Traditional HDDs are not nearly as fast in read/write speeds.
If you're looking for quick boot up, get this SSD or a 32/64gb SSD and install your OS and get a large HDD (if you don't already have one) for storage.
Other Thoughts: Samsung is easily becoming one of my favorite brands whether it be TVs, cell phones, computer hardware, etc.
I trust the Samsung brand a lot as they have quality products.
