Timbuk2 Sycamore Laptop Backpack
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs tight fit 01/30/2014

This review is from: Timbuk2 Sycamore Laptop Backpack

Pros: Lifetime Warranty, Quality Construction

Cons: I have a Dell Inspiron 15r SE (7520). Based on the laptop compartment measurements and laptop-fit-checker on the Timbuk2 website I thought my laptop would slip right in. Well, it definitely does *not* 'slip right in' it is in fact *very* snug, but it does fit. Due to the snugness, getting the laptop in and out is not something I can do one handed, or as quickly as I would like.

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR240GB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price/Capacity

Cons: Cheaper price means slower performance. I bought this to replace an aging 90 GB OCZ Vertex 3 so I could fit my entire Steam library on it and not have to manually move files between spinning disk and SSD when I decided to play a game I hadn't played in awhile.

Anyhow, CrystalDiskMark before/after the drive swap showed the OCZ was clearly faster. However this is still "fast enough" and the higher capacity has certainly made it more convenient.

Other Thoughts: If I had it all to do again, I would have probably tried a Samsung 840 EVO instead.

BIOSTAR B75MU3+ LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works
4 Memory Slots

Cons: The BIOS is... bizarre. But it works well enough.

If I had it all to do again I'd look for a Q77 chipset motherboard. At this price point there are a few of them to be had and I think they're a better option.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a mobo on the cheap to throw together a PC from some spare parts into an actually somewhat respectable moderate gaming rig for my wife, this motherboard filled the need quite well.
