Rosewill RX-C200P 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Simply works perfectly; comes with more than enough mounting screws.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: So easy a caveman could do it! Well, he might have trouble with the screws and finding a screw driver... lol

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, of course; fast at boot ups; fast application and Internet page loads - amazing, actually, compared to the hard drive it replaced! 5 year warranty (important to me).

Cons: None, really, just don't defrag your SSD - it doesn't need it and defragging can shorted its life cycle. Some utility programs know about SSDs, that they are very different from mechanical hard drives. TuneUp Utilities, a program I use all the time is aware, and so, will not defrag the SSD, but everyone should check their specific utility programs for SSD awareness.

Other Thoughts: My first SSD. I rarely used more than about 180GB of space on my old (failed) 750 GB hard drive, so I decided to go with the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD. I did some research and play mostly games on my computer. The Samsung 840 Pro is very good for this and with it's 5 year warranty, I shouldn't have to worry about it for some time. This SSD went into my old 2009 model Dell XPS 435T Core i7 940 (1st Gen i7) computer running Win 8 Pro 64-bit. This SSD is by far the best upgrade I've made to this computer!

Additional info: Because my hard drive would not boot to Windows, after I received my SSD from Newegg, I installed Win 8 Pro on the SSD from my Win 8 Pro 64-bit boot copy disc, the one I created from my original installation. Then I had to call Microsoft to get it activated, since my original installation was an upgrade from Win Vista to Win 8 Pro. Microsoft now has a system where you can leave your phone number and they will call you. I got a call almost immediately and explained my situation to the tech. He got me activated in a few minutes. Very positive experience for me.

ZOTAC Synergy Edition ZT-61106-10M GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very quiet and great graphics performance.

Cons: No cons whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Great frame rate in the game I play (War Thunder - get 60 to 130fps, depending on game map I'm flying in online; only got 30 to 60fps with the old GTX 550 Ti).

Additional info: The monitor connected via HDMI cable to the Zotac GTX 650 Ti is my 23" ASUS Widescreen HD 1080p with a display resolution of 1920x1080. The computer the Zotac GTX 650 Ti went into is a 2009 model Dell XPS 435T Core i7 940 (1st Gen i7) running Win 8 Pro 64-bit, 6GB RAM and a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD.
