This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 55GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G
Pros: Owned it for nearly 7 months now, haven't had a single problem with it. Write speeds were among the best I could ask for for a SATA II SSD as I had a DB to write to. Read speeds were of course amazing, windows booting up in a couple of seconds is always nice to see. Would definitely recommend vertex series to anyone.
Cons: This is a general con and not specific to OCZ or this model, buyer beware on SSDs. The technology is not nearly as reliable yet as HDDs and as a result you may find yourself RMAing it once or multiple times before you get a working one. Obviously doesn't warrant removing an egg because there's nothing OCZ can do about that yet.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the market for an SSD I definitely recommend OCZ IMO, people complain that OCZ's SSDs are unstable and fail too much but I honestly think that's an overstatement and really just a by product of the technology.
No real point in getting a Vertex 2 anymore unless you get a really nice deal on it or you don't have SATA III, Vertex 3 is out already and not too much more expensive than Vertex 2 and double the speeds thanks t SATA III.
This review is from: Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV 40E200U
Pros: Got this TV when they had the CNET deal for $399. For that price it's a great TV, surprised at the amount of HDMI ports you get with it. Picture quality is great, easy to set up and didn't come with any dead pixels as far as I can see. Newegg shipping as always is amazing.
Cons: Sound quality isn't really that great, Current price on Newegg ($629 at the time of writing) is not that good for this TV, can get a better deal elsewhere. If you find this TV under $500 though it's certainly a solid deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported
Pros: Pretty solid price point
First time using screw less for the 5.25 drives and I really like it, simple and easy to use.
Not too hard to fit in a big (ATI 6950) graphics card.
2.5in adapter for the SSD was a nice bonus.
Runs nice and quiet, and weight wise it's nice.
Cons: It seems to be pretty common to see hard drives fit in backwards, makes for some awkward wiring.
Had some trouble aligning my DVD drive with the case, initially wouldn't fit in before I ended up nudging it a bit till it did.
The instruction manual is pretty lacking. Even though you don't need much if you have experience building, if you don't, it might be a bit confusing to some.
Other Thoughts: If you're not too worried about the drawbacks, then it's a pretty solid case and I would certainly recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
