SAMSUNG 850 Pro Series MZ-7KE256BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: ....that this ssd is the best in the market.

- No problems with cloning only took 15 min from a 120gb Samsung Evo

- It's fast as hell. Though it's small it's noticeable I have 5 second boot times from my last ssd which had 10 second and I wasn't even expecting that, it just happened.

- 256gb is a reason I also got it for the extra space to put in Maya, and Photoshop.

Thank you Samsung for an amazing ssd.

Cons: I am not going to put down any stars because the Pro is just to amazing I can't be a selfish jerk and bring it down because of my delivery experience. But I'll rant.

I PAID EXTRA for delivery and who did I get as a carrier? ONTRAC, freakin ONTRAC, I wait on the exact date it was supposed to come. Nope, ok maybe it was delayed it happens. Next day, Nope .... 5 days later form the original date it was supposed to come. It arrives within a small plain envelope with no Far Cry 4 code of course.

UPS made it even before the assigned date and nothing damaged , I have had two experiences with ONTRAC and it was a horrible waste of time. Next time If I can I'll cancel my order if I see ontrac delivering my stuff, no way am I letting them handle anything anymore.

Other Thoughts: I love this ssd overall I just can't get over the fact I have top performance. It just put's you at a stand still if your addicted to upgrading your computer annually. It's just that fast.

MSI R9 280X GAMING 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I guess it's just from the tweaks but I love this card even at default. I wanted to see how far I can bring up the clocks without it going 10c higher but at least enough to see results. I was actually surprised.

I got the card to 1200 core clock and 1600 memory clock. Voltage wouldn't let me keep it at +5 or less and stuck at +6. Thank you msi afterburner.

It runs, that's all I'm going to be able to describe it. It just runs.

Upgrading from a 7850 1gb and yea, there is a huge difference. Loaded up Tomb raider,Bioshock with dlc, Dead Space, Battlefield, and Goat simulator for fun and it just runs +60 fps with/without v-sync as well. Beautiful construction and A FREAKIN BACKPLATE, whatttt?

6gb push this card to construct and render anything in Maya or 3d max without small hiccups. Of course that was expected and I wasn't let down.

What else .... it runs 2 monitors at at 35c idle? Fine temps for me.

Cons: Only con would have to be .... the software I guess (afterburner)? Can't be a big negative but to unlock the voltage for the card you need msi afterburner 3.0.0 beat 19 and it doesn't update from the version the disk is in. You need to go to the MSI Afterburner site and download it from there. Or else you'll get a 404 error updating from the software in the disk. Das about it.

Other Thoughts: Specs:

-Corsair 350D

-asus gene z87

-i7 4770k

-16 gb g.skill sniper

-280X 6gb MSI Gaming

-700 watt NZXT V2

-2 corsair 140AF 2 corsair 140AF Red LED 1 corsair 120AF

-CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus

- 120gb Samsung EVO

-1tb WD Black

-A lot of time looking at my case in awe.

ICY DOCK FLEX-FIT Trio MB343SP 2 x 2.5” HDD/SSD to 5.25” Adapter/Bracket with 1 x 3.5” Device/Drive Bay
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Alright here it is, I love who ever came up with the idea to make this. It's perfect for fitting my hard rive, 3.5 (1) and ssd, 2.5 (1 or 2) in an all in one.

Simple yet surprisingly elegant in design. Now I'm getting to fancy. It's awesome that's about it.

Cons: 2 things that would count as a con would be head output for a hard rive. Ssd no problem, but a large 3.5 hard rive and you can have a bit of heat.

Then there's the middle plastic piece separating the 3.5 drive bay tot he 2, 2.5 bays. It's awkward with putting power cables for the 2.5 drive bays so if you have a Cd player forget putting it on top it'll just heat up your system or catch a wire on fire.That's just saying what the worst can happen it's really simple either way.

Other Thoughts: If you want room in your case like a 350D and improve some airflow this will help. Just make sure your fans "have a very good airflow" then the investment into this is worth it every penny.
