PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Intermittent drive failure after two weeks 02/19/2015

This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Synchronous-Mode Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Drive is compact, and installation is very straightforward. Performance was quick, but I wouldn't have called the speed miraculous. Customer service responded within 24 hours of my email report of drive failure. Hopefully its replacement will go smoothly.

Cons: I began experiencing intermittent drive failures two weeks into my ownership. The drive would fail to awaken when the computer had been asleep, or the drive would not be enumerated by the BIOS at boot time (since it's my boot drive, I couldn't get into the operating system).

Other Thoughts: I worry that the replacement will fail unexpectedly, given that others have also had problems with this model.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200S Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.33GHz LGA 775 65W BX80580Q8200S Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Maximizes performance of an older socket 06/01/2014

This review is from: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200S Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.33GHz LGA 775 65W BX80580Q8200S Desktop Processor

Pros: Socket 775 is a dated platform, but even this architecture can deliver a considerable amount of punch with this quad-core low-power CPU. I replaced a Celeron E1400 with a Q8200S, and I saw better than three-fold gains in highly parallel tasks (media encoding).

Cons: If you really want to maximize performance, you would probably replace your motherboard. I worry more about replacing heatsinks and fans than the CPU itself.

ASUS M2N68-AM PLUS AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Was able to upgrade years later 02/23/2014

This review is from: ASUS M2N68-AM PLUS AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA Geforce 7025/nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: After years of operation with an Athlon X2 3800+, I was able to upgrade this in early 2014 with a used Athlon II X4 610e. The BIOS update made its recognition trouble-free.

Cons: Upgrading to a good volume of RAM was more troublesome, since it features only two DIMM slots, with a max of 8 GB. I opted for a pair of 2GB DIMMs for a total of 4 GB.

Other Thoughts: I appreciate items that just keep running. This one served as my daily PC for years but has served as a video compressor for the last two years. Now it will be a Linux box with respectable power courtesy of the new PC.
