Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs The PCIe 750 is coming - very soon 02/22/2015

This review is from: Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is a great SATA III SSD, from a first line manufacturer. If you are looking for a solid SATA III SSD, the sale on these drives right now is fantastic.

Cons: A much better performing Intel SSD (Model 750) is just about to be released, but it requires a PCIe connection to deliver it's stellar performance. If you have a PCIe interface, then it would be wise to wait for the 750.

Other Thoughts: None

DELL UP3214Q Black 31.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Wonderful Image - Terrible Firmware!! 12/21/2014

This review is from: DELL UP3214Q Black 31.5" 8ms HDMI LCD Monitor IPS 4K 3840 x 2160 50 ~ 300 cd/m2 2,000,000:1

Pros: This is an otherwise very capable 4K monitor. If Dell fixes the firmware (rev. A00) it will be a very good bargain for such a large screen 4K monitor

Cons: In order to obtain 4K resolution at 60Hz, it is absolutely necessary to activate this monitor's DisplayPort 1.2 capability. You cannot get 60Hz capability without using the DisplayPort 1.2 protocol. And that's the problem.

The firmware being presently shipped with these Dell UP3214Q monitors is, for the most part, revision A00. That firmware has a known serious bug which prevents the monitor from arising from sleep mode and displaying an image. Indeed, the monitor will NOT WAKE UP when DisplayPort 1.2 protocol is activated and in use. It becomes necessary to force a cold shutdown of your computer with its blank screen and a subsequent restart in order to gain an image in the screen. This problem has been extensively written about on various web sites, including AnandTech.com.

Other Thoughts: When I personally encountered this problem with this monitor, I called Dell Tech Support. Of course I had to speak to an individual who was obviously located halfway around the other side of the world from the USA, and whose English language skills left something to be desired, but I was finally able to inform him of the problem. The Dell Tech Support Rep kept insisting that there were no known problems with the UP3214Q monitor (it was quite obvious that he was reading from a scripted response on the matter), and kept up that nonsense until I forced him to enter the words "UP3214Q Firmware" into his Google Search Engine, and then directed him to the hundreds of user comments about this problem (including the extensive AnandTech article). Only then did the Dell Rep begin to back away from his obvious untruths about the UP3214Q monitor and its firmware problems. Unfortunately, although the Internet articles are replete with comments about a firmware update that can resolve this problem, the Dell Rep kept indicating that no firmware fix was available. Shame, Shame on you Dell for this misleading and inaccurate information. For almost $1600 USD, a buyer has the right to expect at least some honesty!!

Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e PCI-E 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

1 out of 5 eggs Total Failure After 2 Days! 08/16/2014

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e PCI-E 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It's very fast - when it works.

Cons: It only last 2 days, then crapped out and could not be revived. In fact, the SSD stick became so corrupted that I lost control over the boot process of the PC, and it wasn't until I removed the Plextor PX-AG256M6e from the PCIe slot that I could regain operation of the PC. This was VERY disappointing since I spent 2 days installing the operating system, utilities, printer drivers, applications, etc., and then it just totally failed.

Other Thoughts: I had purchased this from Newegg at the end of May, but never got to install it until yesterday. Of course that means that I'm stuck trying to get the failed SSD replaced by RMA through Plextor, since Newegg appears not to stand behind a failed SSD after 30 days. The SSD installed just fine, loaded a full operating system and all utilities and apps, and then it just quit. I'm going to give another one a try, and RMA the original one back to Plextor. I sure wish Newegg would offer some assistance on this item, since it only lasted 2 days. Bummer!
