-Easy enough mounting (stock intel clips)
Cons: -Cheap construction (see other thoughts)
-Only slight improvement over stock cooler
Other Thoughts: Very cheap construction, the heatpipes along the base actually separated from the base a smidge on one side. Very little performance gains over stock cooling, however gains none the less (hence the 3 stars). Still, in my opinion I don't think the gains are worth the few bills...look elsewhere, there's better for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very pleased with the numbers on this drive. Speeds measured with HD Tune (Stock settings).
Minimum: 86.0 MB/Sec
Maximum 196.0 MB/Sec
Average: 157.8 MB/Sec
Access Time: 12.0 ms
Burst Rate: 152.6 MB/Sec
I'm using this as a stand alone drive in a new build, so the numbers would be even better as a secondary storage drive. As far as acoustics go, these drives are extremely silent. I'm using this in a Carbide 200r and I can't hear the drive accessing at all. Temps rarely rise above 30c, with no direct airflow over the drive itself.
Other Thoughts: For a platter drive these numbers are impressive. The SSD acting as a "hybrid cache" makes your common tasks quite fast, and boot times are only slightly slower (maybe 10 seconds) than a stand alone SSD.
Awesome speed for a platter, silent, stays cool and a massive storage space. This drive is a win in my book, well worth the extra few bones over a non-hybrid version.
Pros: I'm impressed so far. For being a budget processor this thing performs amazingly. I haven't really put it through the paces yet, but from what I've seen so far...this is one of the better options for a low cost machine. Video playback, email, music, student work, office work, handles everything with ease.
Cons: None, for the price.
Other Thoughts: Look elsewhere for mid-high gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
