Pros: SUPER FAST! This card took my laptop and turned it from clunk to hunk! (along with a RAM upgrade). Once the Windows 7 dots start flying across the black boot up screen, it flashes to the desktop faster than you've ever seen. Also get's a 7.9 on Windows experience scale.
Cons: SSD's of this era are still susceptible to power issues IF you disconnect power suddenly. ALWAYS shut down properly.
Other Thoughts: Newer SSD's are getting better with some features such as encryption and power resilience. But IMO, this is still a very good SSD with performance that matches higher cost discs.
Also it's worth noting, I upgraded 2 computers to SSD's and 1 of them is a Core i platform and another is an older Pentium platform. The performance of your SSD will be GREATLY effected by the age of the technology that you're plugging it into. Rule of thumb. If your computer uses DDR2 or older, you will not really notice any/much performance increase. DDR3 or later is where you will notice significant performance increases due to new technology in your mother board (IE getting rid of the FSB and utilizing QPI). Bandwidths are wide open to handle this super speed transfer rate.
Pros: Very Powerful
Cons: 1. EXTREMELY LARGE! not only does it take up two slots (as expected) but I had to unscrew two HDD"s are shove them up to the front of the case.
Other Thoughts: Main point of my review is to tell my experience with this card regarding rendering in Adobe Premiere and Production Suite. I have Production Suite CS5 (still using it). I had a super cheap "other brand" graphics card in my box. I replaced this card with this NVidia card and I have activated the "use hardware" feature so that the software would use this card's Cuda Cores to do it's live video rendering. Well I notice exactly NO better performance between my old card and "software only" rendering vs this cards "hardware" rendering. (for any adobe enthusiasts, I will tell you that I am aware that CS5 was technically created to work only with certain NVidia workstation cards and that this is not one of them. I have utilized the "adobe hack" to add this card to the supported card document and the card is being recognized by adobe since I DO have the option to select this card in my options menu.) However, I did expect a significant increase in performance. Instead I notice that rendering utilized my main CPU and causes it to spike. So, I just bought a sweet gaming card that doesn't help my productivity. I'm sure it's a great card. But it's not helping me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon imageCLASS MF4770n Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer
Pros: not dead
Other Thoughts: Ok, so here's the thing. I bought this for my older brother who thinks he's older than he really is. He has convinced himself that anything technological is the devil and he gets super physically frustrated when tech acts up. He also lives 600 miles away from me and will call me for every little tech issue that he has. I bought this for him about 1 year ago and I have YET to receive one phone call from him about this printer. So, I take that as the highest form of compliment from this guy. Buy it. the ROI vs other major brands is second to none.READ FULL REVIEW
