OCZ Vector 150 Series VTR150-25SAT3-480G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Performance
5 Year Warranty
3.5" adapter included
Acronis included

Cons: No SATA cable included.
Toolbox Software very basic

Other Thoughts: This SSD is good performer. Even with the drive well over half full and installed as the OS drive I consistently get the following very respectable performance: Windows 8.1 BIOS Boot time is 9.6 seconds. 540MB Sequential Read 522MB Sequential Write 96423 IOPS Random Read 90407 IOPS Random Write The drive comes bundled with the 3.5 inch adapter bracket and screws as well as branded tier-1 cloning software you can download directly from the vendor website. It does not come with a SATA cable, though. Overall a very good value and hopefully I don't have to test out the 5 year warranty. You can download utility software 'toolbox' from the vendor website, which provides basic drive info and stats, but some competitor's software is much nicer, but not required to run the drive. With the bracket, Acronis 2013 cloning software and warranty, it's definitely and great value of features, size, speed, and cost... if you get it for a good price. Would buy again.

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Orange/Blue Light) Model BLT4G3D1608DT2TXOB

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: These are excellent! The 8-8-8-24 fast timings allow them perform at the same level as the 1866Mhz version that has the slower 9-9-9-27 timings. Windows 8 WEI measures 8.2 for this RAM. 1.5 volts is nice, too.

The LED lighting is very nice, but I like the MOD utility that lets you monitor temperature and settings, as well as configure a thermal shutdown if desired. These are fairly low-profile, too. I'm running in (4x4GB) configuration, and the temperature is a consistent 34 degrees C.

Cons: Little bit snug getting them into the memory slots... be very careful to make sure to fully seat them.

Other Thoughts: Outperformed expectations. I thought these would be average and they turned out to be excellent (and fast)

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet, solid build, rubber isolation mounts, fan airflow direction arrows on side of housing, adapter for non-speed controlled use.

Cons: Makes you want to buy more of them.

Other Thoughts: Great little fan, strong airflow. Quiet.
