Crucial MX100 2.5

3 out of 5 eggs Not Truthful Advertising? 03/07/2015

This review is from: Crucial MX100 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT256MX100SSD1

Pros: The drive runs mostly without error. The read speed on larger file sizes does hit 500+MB/s. Drive was picked up by my bios without having to do any driver installs or bios updates. Installed on a new x99 Extreme4.

Cons: When I ordered the drive, the page for the MX100 stated write speeds of 550 and read speeds of 550. I would not have ordered it otherwise. Now the write speed on the page shows 300MB/s. After running a few benchmarks, the drive could not write faster than 346MB/s.. Read drops below write by about 30-50% when reading smaller files.
I suppose it's decent, but it's not what I paid for.

I could have easily coughed up another $70 and just gone with the 850 evo 500gb, as it was on sale as well; also haas a 5 year wrranty, and a reported max sequential write of 520MB/s.

Other Thoughts: I should have just gone with the 850 evo, if only I had known that the page had the wrong write speed information posted before purchasing. I've already installed it and transferred Windows to the drive and set my old drive as backup. Otherwise I would return the drive right now. Currently not worth the effort. Hopefully this drive will outlive its warranty and prove worthy; I'll probably replace it long before hand with a Samsung.

AVG AntiVirus 2015 3 User 2 Year - Download

1 out of 5 eggs Not Good 10/01/2014

This review is from: AVG AntiVirus 2015 3 User 2 Year - Download

Pros: None

Cons: After installation on my Windows 7 computer I got blue screened and one of my kernels was corrupted. I didn't have a backup disc and I had a work document that I needed for the next day, so I ended up buying Windows 8 directly from microsoft rather than on here. Went through hell getting that to work. I thought what the hell. I installed it on Windows 8, blue screened and It messed up some updates and drivers and blah. I had to reinstall a few times. Didn't install AVG until after I updated everything and went over to 8.1. It finally worked. My expiration date? This is for 2 years, yet after all the trouble I went through just to use it, it is saying I have a 1 year license. That is complete horse manure.

Other Thoughts: Don't ever install AVG Safeguard Toolbar. It will only cause you pain. AVG, where is my 2 year license I paid for?
