This review is from: PNY XLR8 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD9SC240GMDA-RB
Pros: Upgrading a system drive to a SSD brings hugs improvements to boot up and all round system speed. This drive is no exception and is a great drive to have as a system drive. Excellent speed and transfer rates combined with a good amount of space.
Cons: Only wish it had a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter but other than that it's been perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this card as a replacement/upgrade for an older HD4850. Phenomenal performance for the price of the card and runs cooler than the older 4850 ever did. Loving the ability to use 3 monitors to play games and have an excellent view of the battle around me.

Pros: First to start, this card is probably the fastest card you can buy for the AGP bus and it is remarkably quick in games and on synthetic tests. The card doesn't get too hot with the cooler that it came with however...
Cons: The card is listed as a -P model which Powercolor has listed on thier webpage with a COPPER cooler. This card is also listed as being clocked higher than the card that was sent to me. The pictures shown on Newegg.com's webpage show the actual card they ship however if you compare it to Powercolor's -P model they are clearly different.
Also at issue is the driver problems. ATI/AMD does not support the AGP bus for this card with thier latest drivers. I had to hack the latest drivers to make them work with this card. While they do improve performance over the drivers that shipped with the card it's an extreme hassle to do this with each driver release.
Other Thoughts: Newegg.com needs to re-label thier page on this item and remove the -P from it.READ FULL REVIEW
