Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs So Far a great SSD for a reasonable price... 08/21/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP480GBSS3S55S25

Pros: Very light weight SSD, might shed an ounce or two of weight compared to a mechanical drive in a laptop :)
This review is specifically for the 480GB version, and single drive only.
Speed and performance have been great so far, and it comes with a 3 year warranty.

I installed this in a Desktop as a secondary drive (primary is already an SSD).
I set the pagefile, and games install directory on this drive to keep my main SSD with the OS at a little lower usage percentage and spread the read/writes between them. So far this setup is running great. Even with a game running and pagefile, I am getting a read speed of 514 and write speed of 465 using AS SSD benchmark tool. So far this is a solid performer.

Package is very simple and of course light weight. Was fairly easy to open by cutting the top off with scissors and opening the rest of the package by hand. (bonus in my opinion!)

The drive itself is simple and mounted to a desktop drive drive bay easily. Screw holes all lined up perfectly.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Just a note that this did not come with any hardware or software for making a mirror image of your current install. May be a con for some that need that (I did not) so i'm going to remove any points for that..

I can't speak to the life of the drive since it's only been about a month, however it has held up well so far and I have not seen any decrease in performance yet.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5

Pros: Drive is very lightweight, feels pretty solid.
Installed drive using Sata 3, no issues. Boots right up, and quickly. No errors up to this point.
I put this in an older i5 Laptop running windows 10 Pro.

Using AS SSD I am getting an average of about 511.17 Read and 406.22 Write. This is not the fastest you can find on the market these days, but it is about average for a Sata SSD. Definitely better than you will get with a mechanical drive!

Cons: None So far!

Other Thoughts: I will update if I have any issues, but so far it has been working great for me.

SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset

5 out of 5 eggs Great headset, if you want a good one, you can't go wrong this...!!! 06/21/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: The sound from these are awesome. The mute button is flawless. The Mic works clearly and has not had any issues
The portability is very nice and convenient. The battery life is as advertised, and it is great having the second battery that you can charge while using the other. The volume works great, they feel good when on your head. The noise cancelling works really well. All the cables and adapters that came with this work great, and it gives you the ability to connect many types of devices. Overall these are absolutely a great buy and for me worth the money.

Cons: The directions were not real clear on hooking some of it up with the various devices but it was pretty easy to figure out.
