  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Reliable.

Cons: When comparing to other power supplies any where close to the price of this one, none what so ever.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready  Video Card ( 100322L)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very inexpensive and doesn't require a fan.

Cons: None for the purposes I purchased it for.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for the purpose of freeing up resources the onboard video was taking from my system and needed slightly more video RAM for very little cost. I can't see any other reason to purchase a card this old. I gave it 5 stars because it hasn't failed and is serving it's purpose as intended.

Plextor M5P Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Noticeably faster Windows and App startup times. Cloning software was very easy to use.

Cons: Possibly already having an issue with 1 of the 2 drives. About 3 weeks after installing 1 of the drives part of my Windows Registry became corrupted and the Windows System Restore didn't resolve the issue even though I successfully restored to an earlier time. Luckily I had the old drive still intact and reckoned it on to the SSD drive so I didn't have to do a complete reinstall. It could be coincidence. Time will tell.

Other Thoughts: I've seen plenty of claims of Windows starting up in 15 seconds. Those that make that claim probably have an I7 processor. No matter how fast the drive is, the processor is still involved in the startup process and thus has an impact on startup times. My computers have a 3.6Mhz Phenom Quad processor and it takes them about 40 seconds for Windows and for the startup apps to finish loading. But it used to take about 75 to 90 seconds with a 7200 SATA drive, so big improvement none the less.
