This review is from: Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fairly good write speeds, fast read speeds. Good for an OS drive.
Cons: Has a bug in earlier versions of the firmware that causes BSODs every hour after you hit 5184 hours with it powered on.
Other Thoughts: For everyone having crash issues with this, update your drive's firmware from Crucial's site. It seems the old firmware versions write the powered-on hours to a single cell or something so when it hits 5184 hours and tries to update it again (once an hour) it fails and you get a BSOD if it is your OS drive, or you drop the drive if it isn't. After this update you'll be fine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Massive DPI range that has on the fly controls which can be configured via the drivers. Extra weights lets me make the mouse heavier and helps with control. Fit feels good on the hand. Free-scrolling is a nice feature.
Cons: 10 buttons? I count 6. 8 if you're generous and include the DPI switching buttons, I suppose the side scroll clicks are counted as 9/10. 3rd side button (bottom middle) has issues being mapped outside of the drivers. Cord likes to snag on things due to its braided cover.
Other Thoughts: Would be nice if it had even heavier weights but as it is it's fine. 5700 DPI is overkill, unless your in-game sensitivity is in the hundredths.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 120hz. I never thought I'd really notice that much of a difference between 60 and 120, until I had this hooked up side by side with my old monitors. Even dragging a windows explorer window around the screen is smoother.
Cons: Overdrive can cause some ghosting in games so I have it turned off. HDMI is strictly for PC, had it hooked up to a cable box and if you run 720i or 1080i it turns purple. Also has an annoying habit of prioritizing the HDMI input over the DVI input. If my PC stops displaying to the monitor (the 10 minute shut off monitor) it'll switch to the HDMI input even with the cable box off and just show a black screen. No HDMI audio output volume control.
Other Thoughts: Doesn't come with the hardware needed for nVIDIA's 3D. You'll need to buy that separately if you want to use 3D. The orange parts on the stand could clash with some people's setups but causes no problems with mine.READ FULL REVIEW
