Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Flawless install on an Alienware M17x laptop 08/10/2016

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

Pros: No surprises! Just plug in the Sata cable and install windows 7 ,then a quick upgrade to Windows 10.
Alienware already has Sata 3 support and Sata 3 cable.
So i was hoping to bench this Silicon Power Slim S55 480 at it finest.
And I was not disappointed!
Since i had the Windows 7 Alienware DVD ,i only had to swap out my old 500gb 5400 rpm drive.
And restart to Dvd as first boot and that was it.
Under Windows 7 WEI it get the top score , a 7.9
Under Windows 10 ,command prompt, WEI score Silicon Power Slim S55 get a crazy 8.05 on WEI !!
Never seen a half point before .
Absolutely no problems during install and that in itself is worth 5 stars.

Cons: No cons ,this Silicon Power Slim runs perfect.
Windows 10 thinks its a scsi drive tho.

Other Thoughts: Crystal Mark benches this drive at 560 read and 530 write.AWESOME!
A 3 year warranty and an excellent bang for the buck.
480gb is more than enough, Wow ,I wish i had 2 to raid them.
Reviewers of the Silicon Power Slim S55 that give less than 4 star ratings , please check your laptop/desktop sata connection make sure you have a rated sata 3 cable, for full performance, and your motherboard supports sata 3. Also be wary of firmware updates on any ssd ,unless this is a last resort and only after you exhausted all other options

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs 5 star ssd very fast and no issues after 6 weeks 08/07/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP240GBSS3S55S25FR

Pros: Bang for the Buck is unequal!
Very fast SSD ,I am not using this to load Windows but i use this to load games and they load in an instant.
Silicon SSD Benchmarks a bit faster than Silicon claims and thats a nice easter egg
Read is 542MB/s
Write is 515MB/s
I really want to raid this with my other 240 ssd from Newegg.
But this is a project for another day.

Cons: Hate that hard plastic shell it comes in lol
I guess to keep cost down this does not come with a sata cord.

I will address this point in other.

Other Thoughts: Any barebones SSD that is Sata 3 should include a Sata 3 cord.
To many negative reviewers may be using a 10 year old Sata 1 cord ,also people need to know if their notebook/laptops motherboard has a Sata 3 connector.
If you want the rated speed use the right cord and a Sata 3 connector on your motherboard.

I am also wary of updating any firmware on ANY SSD ,I bricked one doing this and had to toss it.
If you are not getting the speed Silicon claims ,make sure of the cable and the motherboard is rated Sata 3
this will take care of all your speed concerns.

I couldnt be happier with this low cost ,high speed ssd and this is why it is 5 stars on Newegg.

SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs The BEST Headset i will ever own! 07/05/2016

This review is from: SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset

Pros: The SteelSeries Siberia 800 wireless gaming headset is a top of the line headset.
It offers great sound and versatility.

To start off with, the gaming headset provides a clear and crisp sound thanks to its Dolby 7.1 virtual surround sound which will absorb the gamer in the game he or she is playing.
The headsets microphone makes a Skype call sound like a Landline call, voice recording is crystal clear,and when playing online with friends , they can actually understand you!.
Versatility and compatibility ultimate comfort is why you would choose SteelSeries Siberia 800 headset.

It's compatible with a variety of system such as PC, Mac , Xbox one , PS4 and Ps3 just to name a few.
To top it off , the battery life in this headset is the best I've seen in any headset I've owned.
Each battery gives 8-10 hours of battery life. The docking station that hooks up to the wall or computer will change the second battery. So, If you every run out of battery you can then replace it so you won't miss a second in action. Finally the headset is very comfortable thanks to its padding around the ears.

Cons: I've had a hit or miss experience with the 2nd battery ,charging sometimes and sometimes not .SteelSeries support offered to just send another battery out. But, really,why ,as the batteries are so long lasting only one battery makes me happy!

Other Thoughts: All in all,SteelSeries Siberia 800 Wireless Gaming Headset I highly recommended to purchase.
And i can not think of another feature that i might want , miss or need.
Even with the 2nd battery charging sometimes and sometime not. These headphones are a gamers dream. I can game all night long in High def surround sound and not disturb anyone!
