Pros: Boots windows MUCH quicker than mechanical drive. Shortcuts open quicker than I can move my mouse. Wasn't DOA, no noise, low power and heat.
Cons: BIG HEADS UP FOR THOSE GOING TO BUY THEIR FIRST SSD
I don't know if this is true for all drives, or just this one, but using a sata III cable and the sata III port on my motherboard, I get apprx. 120mb/s transfer speed of a 20gb folder. This is "real world" speeds according to "Sean" from Mushkin support. Only using the program "Atto" do I achieve the advertised speeds. Other programs like AS SSD never reach anywhere close to that, apparently it uses "uncompressed data" or something. Anyway, I think this is very deceitful, to use the highest possible speeds under "non real world scenarios" and advertise them. Descriptions should at least say "speeds may vary in real world situations".
3/5 eggs simply for that. Otherwise it would have been 5/5.
Don't you hate that feeling you get when you get a 1tb hard drive and it's only 931gb? You'll get the same feeling with this drive.
Other Thoughts: Newegg customer service is amazing. I said I bought this drive for $118.99 a few days ago and feel cheated that it's only $99.99 now, and they refunded me the difference, no questions asked.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN ZM-CS5A CPU Cooler Clip for Intel Socket 1155/1156/775
Pros: Does what it's supposed to. Holds my zalman cnsp 9700 to my i5-2500k on my asrock z68 extreme3 gen3 motherboard.
Cons: Kind of a pain to get installed, but not enough to drop an egg.
Other Thoughts: Price was $5.99 + 2.99 shipping. Before the item even arrived, newegg dropped the price to $6.99 + free shipping. I felt cheated. I contacted them and told them this, they refunded me $2.00, no questions asked.
