This review is from: Toshiba Q Series HDTS225XZSTA 256GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: I only use it to store my System Image so I can only say that the Write speeds are very good cutting down the time to backup my entire OS from 1+ hours to under 10 minutes.
Cons: None after almost 1 year of ownership. Purchased in October of 2013 and working like a champ every day since installation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI Z97-Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It's an extra dark black which really makes this board stand out from the others. The lighted circuit trace around the audio amp is a nice touch. DeBug LED reads out CPU temps once system is booted. All error codes are in the manual. Enters correct XMP values automatically when selected. Overclocks easily and has my Devil's Canyon i7-4790k running stable at 4.6 GHz @ 1.260 volts with manually entered settings.
Cons: The BIOS needs one or two adjustments to get a DC to boost to 4.4 GHz. It won't detect your CPU's default clock rates and enter them automatically. The MSI logo on the South Bridge is lighted too but you won't be able to see it or the lighted audio amp if you have CrossFire or SLI video boards.
Other Thoughts: I had a MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming with a 2600k and it was a solid performing motherboard for me. I'm glad I spent the extra money this time and got the better board with the DeBug LED module. It makes things nice. I won't hesitate to recommend MSI over any other brand out there.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice blue color. Quiet. Move a decent amount of air.
Cons: Forget about any rebate. I haven't even got an acknowledgement that they received my rebate form. You thought getting a rebate from that California company was bad? This Texas company has no redeeming qualities.
Other Thoughts: Just count on paying full price. You'll never see a rebate or hear from anyone except the SPAMMERS that the rebate company is selling your email address and other personal information to. This is truly a new low for what used to be a good company to buy hardware from.
R.I.P. Cooler Master. The CM that we all knew and loved is no more. Fading into obscurity.
