OCZ Vertex 2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Great drive while it lasts... 10/31/2011

This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTX100G

Pros: Installed flawlessly and ran wonderfully for exactly 6 months. Going through RMA process now. Must admit I bought this expecting it to fail. Read the reviews. They are directly to the point. These drives seem to fail much more than other SSD manufacturers on the market. I keep rolling backup's of my system and all important data on other drives so there was no data loss.

Cons: These drives should not fail this quickly or often. There is obviously a design flaw or substandard materials used in the manufacturing process. I was considering stepping up to the REVO drive but I'm reluctant to spend that much money on a drive that will most likely fail within 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Not so sure about ever buying OCZ again. While the RMA process is easy and efficient, a week without my primary drive is just not acceptable...

ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Be wary when buying this board 08/13/2011

This review is from: ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Good implementation of features. Looks nice. Exactly what was described. Core Unlocker worked perfectly.

Cons: Died after 4 months of use. RMAed thru ASUS. After 10 days they said they could not replace the board and had shipped me a replacement. However, they could not provide tracking information or arrival date. I was told it was shipped FedEx Ground, so I called FedEx. No package is being shipped to my address at this time. I called ASUS back and got hung up on 3 times before a rep finally told me the case had been closed and I should just wait. After explaining this was not good enough, he told me he would e-mail his supervisor and I should call back Monday morning...

Other Thoughts: I will never purchase ASUS again after this dismal experience. I have 3 computers I have built myself. All three have an ASUS system board and monitor. Never again will I use this brand if this is how they treat customers.

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Large fan, good air movement, rock solid. Never had a problem with power fluctuations or any mishaps.

Cons: Semi-Modular. SATA cables are very short. Had to move devices in my system to get the drives powered.

Other Thoughts: For its purpose this is a great power supply. Read the fine print and know you will not be powering a huge RAID array with only 4 SATA power connections.
