This review is from: SAMSUNG 250GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1
Pros: - It doesnt weight hardly anything
- And works as expected...almost (Read Cons)
-Safe if dropped (I wouldnt test it) due to no moving parts
Cons: If you have a Samsung Internal SSD set as the OS Disk, then stay away from this one.
Because I have just that, I cannot use this in USB 3.0 and if I keep it plugged in to the USB 2.0 after shutting it off, when I turn on my computer back on, it mistakes the T1 External SSD as my OS Disk and refuses to boot until I unplug it and try again.
The Speed and safety of an SSD External HDD are what led me to pay a little extra for this drive. It sucks that I cant use it as advertised because of a mistake on Samsung's end.
Other Thoughts: The hard drive is solid, and its small and light weight. It has the potential to be a great external hard drive, they just need to weed out the severe problems (like this) before its too late.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -The keyboard is solid. Its not made of steel but for plastic, it can take a beating.
-I see people worrying about the feet of keyboards alot, so ill put this oen to rest. The feet on this keyboard are exactly identical to those on the back of School keyboards (Dell/Gateway Based Computers),
Which means they are solid too, but i wouldnt be slamming the keyboard down hard any time soon.
-LED options are great, Blue is better for low to med light operation, while red is great for dark lighting (my opinion)
Cons: -Will say that you cannot see the keys even in a well lit room very easily if you have the LEDs shut off, but i don't plan on turning them off anyhow.
Other Thoughts: I love the keyboard so far, considering what i paid for it ($38) BUT IF you have the money for a better and more reknowned keyboard, i'd buy that instead.
Overall, not a bad keyboard but its not perfect. So far i live it!
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming Case
Pros: I've had this case for about 7 months now and it has served me very well. Despite what others say, this case is NOT small, whatsoever. Its not Huge but there about a foot of Video Card space, more than large enough for the largest video cards like the GTX 680 and HD 7950 (Like mine) haha
Great Air flow!
I have a push pull system comprised of the fans that come with the case and 1 extra (in one of the 2 fan mounts on the top) and everything stays below 33C, except the cpu which rarely hits above 45C (i7+Hyper 212)
Dust is a synch to clean out thanks to the dual hand-screw removable panels, and the push-click top fan mount grate.
Also there's fan mount screw holes in the main side panel that can allow 2x 120MM fans or the 1x 200mm that comes with it which is nice
Cons: 2 of the 4 hand-screws (one on each side panel) seems to be slightly stripped but isnt a problem for me unless i tighten them too much, but every computer part is different, so goes life. Not worth a removal of an egg though.
Other Thoughts: I paid $130 for the case and now its $95!!! Don't miss out on the great Corsair quality.READ FULL REVIEW
