This review is from: TuneUp + AVG Anti-Virus 1 User For System Builder
Pros: Good Software
Cons: If this is OEM system builder software, and from what I know about this kind of stuff, keep in mind that that is exactly what it is, System builder software, making what you are getting nothing more then trial versions of both software, not full one year or longer subscriptions. Expect 60 to 90 days.
Other Thoughts: Thinking about it, why would you pay for software you can download for free and transfer to a new build, thus not risking it in any way to unprotected contact with the internet.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Pyro PP120GS25SSDR 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: It is a solid State drive, Beyond that none
Cons: As others have stated, the read/write speeds don't even come close to what the Manufacture claims. Even after making sure I had all the proper updates for my machine and updating the firmware from Patriot website, I get at best 200/192 read/write with this drive using full SATAIII with proper cables in AHCI mode. Can’t send it back, which I would if I could.
Other Thoughts: Although it is faster than my WD Blacks, by a bit less then a quarter margin, it is very disappointing considering other SSD drives seem to almost meet the 600 mark. I could not in good conscience recommend this drive to anyoneREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler
Pros: I really like this cooler.The only thing I think that might be better is a high end water cooler. This unit keeps my i7 under load at 43c. It has a very good positive mounting system, much better then some of the zalman cooler of my past purchse. In my Antec 900-II with all fans on low, it cant even be heard.
Cons: had a bit of an issue with the supplied resister connector trying to get accurate fan speeds displyed, but that i belive was a problem with my MSI control panel rather then the fan. So I just plugged it raw and set fan speed in bios to 1000 rpm and left it at that, it cools very wellREAD FULL REVIEW
