This review is from: HooToo® HT-CR002 External USB 3.0 Multi-in-One Card Reader (4 Memory Slots, Genesys GL3220 Chipset) & SuperSpeed USB 3.0 3-Port Hub (VIA VL810 Chipset, 5V/2A Power Adapter, 3 feet USB 3.0 Cable)
Pros: This thing is super fast. I bought it because I only have a laptop and USB slots are limited. I run a Ducky keyboard, Wacom tablet and a mouse off this thing without plugging it in.
I also use it to pull gigs and gigs of photos from my camera's compact flash MUCH faster than simply plugging in the camera directly.
Cons: The LED is brighter than ten thousand suns. Electrical tape is a must, so add $2.99 to the price or raid your friends' garages and find some?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Super fast, no driver issues.
Cons: It stopped working properly after about a year. Crashes every thirty minutes or so.
Other Thoughts: I should have waited for SSD to become more reliable, but I had to have one when it was new and happening. Next time I'll buy from a brand that I know makes reliable hard drives or stick to regular drives that last a lifetime.
It's like the rabbit and the hare: it will bound ahead of your HDD but crash before the finish line...
This review is from: Noctua NH-C14 140mm x 2 SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: It's all about the little things, and Noctua considers them all. They include two sets of adapters for 'quiet' and 'ultra-quiet' fan speeds--not that either makes a lick of difference, but it's still nice that they included them! The quality of the parts, the precision in every aspect of the design is astounding. They make it SO EASY to configure it exactly the way you want it, you can put the whole thing in any way you want, so that it fits the best way it can. They include tons of extras (like rubber screws just in case you want to use one of the 140mm fans on your case instead). Overall, you just can't give this product less than a 5 star. It actually made my cpu temp lower, and because it's so big it even made my VReg and ram cooler too!
Cons: None, not even a typo in the instructions!
Other Thoughts: I'd recommend this heatsink to anybody. I built a 4U rackmounted studio machine whose height is only 7 inches, with a quarter inch of sound dampening foam and a quarter inch of mobo standoff and this thing FIT like a dream still! If you are considering the same type of machine, you'll be pleasantly surprised even after reading all these reviews.READ FULL REVIEW
