This review is from: CRUCIAL CT240M500SSD1 240GB 2.5 SSD M500 CT3808330
Pros: This thing rocks. What's not to love, 240gb of solid state memory. Replaced a 7200rpm hdd in my Dell Vostro 3500, and the performance difference is staggering. This SSD gave my laptop new life.
Cons: Paid 120$ for it on sale, but you can easily find 240/256gb solid states for closer to 100$. Crucial is a good brand so I don't feel too bad for paying a little extra.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked exactly as advertised. Massive performance upgrade from the 4gb standard kit.
Other Thoughts: Purchased for use in a Dell Vostro 3500. Totally compatible.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Audio Card
Pros: Blows onboard sound out of the water. Installation was easy and drivers worked after one restart. Sound quality is absolutely tremendous for this price. Software included is powerful and allows for easy customization, great for switching between movies, games, and music.
Cons: Included documentation is pretty lousy, especially coming from Asus. Doesn't indicate if you're supposed to disable onboard sound before or after the driver installation. Figured it out with some trial-and-error restarts. Not enough to knock off an egg.
Other Thoughts: HD sound for 50 bucks. I'm using a Steelseries Siberia V2 which is working wonderfully with this card.READ FULL REVIEW
