Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, prices are competitive compared to other brands

Cons: I own 3 of these hard drives, 2x 256s and a 128, they have serious firmware problems. They will do fine for a while but as time goes on there are increasing chances of them having problems.

There's a bug in some drives that sometime after 5,000 hours of operation the drives will eventually shut down every hour. That one can be fixed with a firmware update.

There is another bug however that can not be fixed with firmware updates so far. It causes the drive to become undetectible and potentially destroys the data on the SSD

Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 6-Core 3.33GHz LGA 1366 130W Desktop Processor BX80613I7980X
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Insainly fast

Cons: This chip set is being phased out

Other Thoughts: I got this processor as an option in a $5,000 laptop I bought. When I got home from Iraq I put it in my desktop. I barely overclock this sucker at all, up to around 3.8Ghz if that. The only time I've ever maxed this thing out is when running video converters.

3 out of 5 eggs Nice, but don't break them! 07/08/2011

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: These headphones are cheap and sound great to a non-audiophile

Cons: Cord is way too long, I stood up and somehow got tangled up in the cord and it just snapped where the cord splits between the mic/headphones jack. I stripped the wires a little to see if I could fix it, but there was just no way. The wires are insanely small, and there's 3 stranded colored wires, there was just no way I could fix it so in my disgust I enjoyed jumping up and down on them in my garage, and YES IT DID MAKE ME FEEL BETTER!

Other Thoughts: This is the second pair, the first had a problem with the cord as well, a loose connection where the cord plugs into the headset, but only after 6 months or so.

Don't break the cord or you're out of luck!
