This review is from: Kingston 60GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SMS200S3/60G
Pros: Good speed at a good price. I have been using this in my laptop for some time now. I am loving the speed and it just works. Great little product
Cons: Not a con I wish SSDs and MSATA devices would continue to fall in price so everyone can afford them.
Other Thoughts: Buy the correct product. Yes there are different slots out there that look very similar. Check your specs sheet to make sure these are compatible with your machine(laptop/desktop)
If you have zero understanding of the equipment you are buying the hardware for, please don't put you have the highest tech knowledge and rate the product low. It is misrepresenting the product by scoring it low because you purchased the wrong product. It is not Kingston's nor Newegg's fault that you just looked at the slot and thought it was the same. You need to check the complete specs before you purchase something. If it doesn't work then offer a review explaining why you gave it such low eggs but not because you don't know the different between a PATA slot and a SATA slot on your motherboard.
Pros: It sits in a nice price point and is a very reliable drive. The company (I'm in the IT Dept.)I work for just upgraded their computers from 80GB drives to these for more storage on the workstation computers. Now most of the employees use these just for email and internet so even if they aren't the fastest around it works great.
I bought this drive to replace an OEM drive from Dell. The Dell drive was a 250GB 5400rpm drive so this was a huge step up in performance and stability. Never had a problem with any of these drives.
Cons: 16MB of cache. I know it is a lower end drive but the extra 16MB to 48MB would be nice. Not a big deal at all though since the drive is so reliable.
Other Thoughts: If you need a great reliable drive for under $60 and don't need more than 250GB of storage then you really can't go wrong on this drive. Sure you may have the occasional DOA drive but that is to be expected. You have that with every single brand out there no matter what part you are buying. What it comes down to is how the company treats you if it happens. WD treats people right. I have had to RMA RE3 and RE4 drives and they usually do a cross ship or ship it to me first. I had an RE3 drive that was just beyond the warranty date and they replaced it anyway. WD is my choice of HD MFG and with the customer service I don't think you can go wrong with them. I have had experience with multiple drive companies personally and professionally and WD has always treated me with respect and never have they treated me as if I had no clue what I was doing. To me, that means a lot and tells a lot about a company. I am not the most knowledgeable person but I do have a bit of experience in computers to know when a company is no worth the time of day.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech MDP2DVIS Mini DisplayPort to DVI Active Adapter
Pros: It just works. Plugged it in for my triple monitor setup and it just works. I have all three monitors running at 1080p and have setup eyefinity for gaming and what can I say, it just works.
Cons: None that I can see
Other Thoughts: I was told not to buy these because they were supplied power by a usb port but I haven't had any troubles. I probably wouldn't recommend if you are using anything higher than 1080P but if you are running 1080P setup this is very niceREAD FULL REVIEW
