Pros: This thing is fast..crazy fast. And they lie about the speed ratings, I was able to hit over 2GB read and almost 1.8GB write. Better to under rate your product than over promise though.
Windows 8.1 boots insanely fast and works perfect with this drive. Infact, due to the drivers, I had to upgrade to Windows 8 because windows 7 drivers don't really take full advantage of its capabilities.
Photoshop CC doesn't boot instantly as I had hoped, it hangs for a second when scanning for presets, which could be the seek speed decrease of the RAID 0, or perhaps a limitation of my CPU. It is still twice as fast as my old SSD when starting so I am happy.
Cons: Okay, so the bad part is here that the drive died after 1 week of running. My computer runs 24/7 but has great airflow, so it was a full week of always on.
And by "Die" I mean it stopped booting. And the "Insert Boot Media" error I googled seemed to be common with OCZ SSD's. I have had an OCZ SSD fail on me before, but I had hoped the Toshiba purchase improved the quality, mainly because I have had good luck with them.
The drive was technically still readable...and would even preform well in speed tests. But, it refused to boot, even with a fresh windows install. Without any system changes or BIOS changes, it just randomly decided to stop booting. Luckly my distrust in old OCZ drives had me doing nightly clones to my old SSD, so not too much harm was done...but still for 850, I'd hoped for some reliability.
it is being sent back to NewEgg for an RMA as we speak. I fear from the previous reviews, and from what I have see in my live CD cloning software, that I may not be able to clone back to the drive once it comes in, but we shall see.
I still give this unit 4 stars because of what it can do. For the week, I was flying through projects with little to no wait time on image processing and some light video rendering. Now back on my old SSD, I really miss this thing...
Other Thoughts: Honestly, this has put a bad taste in my mouth. I am half temped to just return it and wait for the INTEL PCI express 3.0 SSD that is coming out soon. It will only be $100 more and made by Intel...
I understand though that these things happen. Being an enthusiast PC builder, I know things can go wrong. Still, it is frustrating when it goes wrong with me, lol.
This review is from: New 4ft 3.5mm Audio Stereo Headphone Male to Female Extension Cable
Pros: So I plugged it in, and audio passed from one end to the other.
Cons: Don't try to use it as a jump rope, It's much too short.
Other Thoughts: I love pie.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worth the cost, has a decent LED brightness on it and moves a lot of air. Fit right in to my Cosmos II case.
Cons: The only reason I dropped an Egg was for the fact that when these get turned down, they have an annoying sound. It is not too loud by itself, but when you have 5 of them, they can get bad. It almost adds a ticking sound.
Other Thoughts: Still a good buy, and if I need to replace one, I would get another. The sound only bugs me because my computers stays cool with all the fans I have, so I dont have a need for full speed very often.READ FULL REVIEW
