OCZ TRION 150 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Noticeable speed increase (subjectively, see below) from the OCZ Vertex 3 it replaced
- Great price per GB, at least at the time when I purchased it
- Going on 6 months with no issues

Cons: - None!

Other Thoughts: I had a 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 in my primary desktop for years, but over time, I was running out of space and running out of programs I was willing to uninstall. I had heard mixed reviews about OCZ in the past, but since they are now Toshiba drives, I was a little less hesitant (although, I never had a single issue with my Vertex 3, which is now living out the rest of it's life in an Acer netbook). After installing this Trion, I noticed my boot time was almost halved, however, I did a clean install of Windows and re-installed my applications, so it could have just been the fresh start that made my whole system snappier.

EVGA GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 01G-P3-2711-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Low profile to fit in tight cases
- Half height bracket included
- Doesn't require external power
- 4K!

Cons: - Probably not great for gaming, but I'm never going to use it for anything more taxing than streaming video.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card to put in an older Dell Studio XPS desktop that I'm currently using for streaming video on my TV. While I don't have a 4K TV, I was looking for something that was capable of 4K should I choose to upgrade. I never thought I would find something this cheap that was so capable. Streaming 1080p HD video is flawless (as expected). The fan is next to silent, at least more silent than the hard drive in my XPS, which makes it great for an HTPC. Don't expect to be doing 3D rendering or graphic-intensive gaming with only 1GB of memory and 64-bit, but that was never my intention. I was looking for a cheap card to breathe new life into an older system, and this card did that at an unexpectedly low price.

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10D-16GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - It worked out of the box for a year. Pretty quick.

Cons: - System was faulting frequently, failed MemTest86 (tons of errors), working fine now with replacement RAM.

Other Thoughts: I typically hope to get more than a year out of something like RAM, which is usually just get and forget.
