Apotop MASS3C256GBR 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 2 for 2 with this model 05/06/2015

This review is from: Apotop MASS3C256GBR 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: No issues during install
Very fast
Comes with 3.5” adapter
Good looks

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I’ve bought 2 of these Apotop 256 drives now and they both are near the top of the list of more than 30 SSD’s I’ve tested over the past year or so. One is paired with a Pentium G3258 and the other one with an i3-4360. There are other factors that can have effect on speed, especially software configurations, but both of these are almost identical as far as software. Win7 Pro is OS in both cases which tends to be a little slower than Win 8.1 but these two are quicker than most of the Win 8.1 PC’s I’ve tested.

More recently I’ve been testing only cold boot and reboot times (with a stop watch) rather than fool around with synthetic bench marks like I used to. Most of the systems I build will be going to somebody else and I know that fast boot times are what impress people the most. They are what impress me the most. If they boot fast then applications will load fast is what I’ve found in real life use. That said, I won’t knock anyone who prefers to do more thorough testing. I still use benchmarking software for other components.

So far, so good with this brand. I also bought 8GB memory from them several months ago that has been doing great.

Mushkin Enhanced Stealth 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069S
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Stable from original boot up until now

Highest Passmark score of 38 PC's I've tested in past year

Low profile

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Used i7-4790 with Asus H97-E/CSM LGA 1150 board.

To some degree the high Passmark score can be attributed to i7 vs i5 and lower for the other 37 systems I tested. That being said its hard not to be impressed with this memory.

I only buy Mushkin occasionally due to pricing and availability vs some of the other big names but when I have it has been rock solid.

Can't remember if I had to change to XMP to get it to run at 1600 MHz, but if so it was painless like it always has been when I've needed to do that. I built this machine a couple months ago.

Silicon Power 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) CL9,UDIMM,(512Mx8 SR),w/HS Model SP008GXLYU16ANDA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Stable--board recognized it as 1600 MHz with no adjustments

Rated a close up 4th out of 23 machines I've bench marked memory on in past year with Passmark, most of which contained the top rated name brands

Scored 7.8 of a possible 7.9 on Win 7 Experience (for what that's worth)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: First time I've bought this brand and it's not likely to be the last. Before putting these sticks in I tried a pair of top rated 1866 MHz and couldn't boot into the BIOS. So I pulled them out and popped these in and was off to the races. The lower speed probably had something to do with it but the fact that the SP's worked and tested so well didn't hurt.
