Pros: Lots of power
Lots of cables
Cons: Sitting in the bottom of my PC case the power supply draws air from the opening in the bottom of the case. However, the power supply sits updside down in order to accommodate this fit. When you look at the back of my PC, the sticker/tag/nameplate for the power supply is inverted. It's an aesthetic issue only.
The fan inside the power supply makes a loud ticking noise. VERY annoying as it happens 2 - 3 times per second and is almost continuous.
This review is from: OCZ Solid 3 SLD3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC
Resistant to changes in air pressure (unlike spinning HDD)
Resistant to changes in temperature (unlike spinning HDD)
Resistant to shock (unlike spinning HDD)
Installing software is actually fun
Uses less electricity than spinning HDD
Small (2.5" FF)
Cons: Cost per gigabyte
Limited read/write cycles
Other Thoughts: This is the second of these drives that I've purchased. I liked it so much in my desktop gaming rig that I put one in my wife's laptop when it's spinning HDD failed. So far so good. The performance and reliability boost is nice. I can't believe manufacturers are still putting fragile spinning HDD's in laptops because they suck more battery power and are prone to failure due to dropping. It's criminal!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Excellent graphics
- Doesn't take up a huge amount of space inside case
- Integrated fan cooling
Cons: - Games freeze now and then
- Built-in fan cooling probably isn't sufficient when overclocking
- Somewhat large
Other Thoughts: When the graphics are working, they are great, even at the highest resolutions, I still pull 70 frames per second. Unforunately, graphics in games I have been playing freeze up now and then. Games include League of Legends, Team Fortress 2, and Lord of the Rings Online. I verified that I have the overclocking set at the default level, so I'm not actually overclocking, but graphics still froze while sound was still working in game. Had to restart PC and I let it cool down for a bit.READ FULL REVIEW
