Pros: Good capacity for price (at least when I bought it).
Cons: EaseUS would NOT shrink my Windows partition down to this drive, it would get to 16% and fail every time.
I used Clonezilla to swap this SSD with a different SSD in another computer and this OCZ SSD now works just fine. EaseUS was able to shrink the Windows partition down to the replacement SSD, so I don't really know what the problem is. Perhaps its that Firmware "valet" they talk about on the product description page?
Other Thoughts: I bought the 240GB version in 2014. By the time my wife shrunk her C: drive down enough to fit, I could have bought the 480GB version instead. SSDs are progressing way too fast.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small and thin enough. Boots fairly fast (I assume thanks to Win 8 hibernation settings). I assume the Office 365 will be good, but I'm waiting to activate it until near the end (since it's only a year anyways).
Worked decently well with steam "remote screen" (or whatever it's called), so I could play games on my desktop essentially using the tablet as a remote screen/interface.
Since it's an x86 tablet, it operates just like a desktop or laptop. Very nice with windows (sometimes I miss desktop-like features with Android). For instance, I could install applications to the SD card which shows up as a second hard drive. File management in general is just better.
Cons: USB plug is deep, it doesn't actually charge with some USB plugs, but the one it came with seems to work ok.
Screen resolution is below Win 8 minumum, so desktop is shrunk down to fit.
Internal storage space is barely enough for windows. I have <2GB free, and all I installed was Opera web browser and the Flixster app. I was able to install apps to a memory card (like Steam).
Don't know if it's Windows 8 or the tablet, but no on-screen keyboard for full-screen apps. Tried to play a game that wouldn't start without me entering a name first. Luckily I had a bluetooth keyboard laying around.
Couldn't attach Windows 8 to my Windows 7 homegroup, no matter which computer I set it up from. Not sure what the problem is there.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a sub $100 way to try-out Windows 8. Can't believe how unfriendly the interface is. Is there a "metro" web browser? Even IE opens up in desktop mode. The tablet itself is fine (especially considering the price).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake CL-P002-AL14RE-A 140mm NiC L32 Aluminum CPU Cooler
Pros: Quality Cooling
Clears Everything in my case and on my motherboard.
Quiet Operation even at full speed.
Relatively easy install on AM3+ mobo.
Cons: Almost blocked the CPU fan header on my motherboard, almost.
I can't find anywhere to buy a second fan (no link from Thermaltake's website), and it's not a standard 140mm (different mounting holes, no extra hardware anyway). If you plan on getting a second fan, try to see if anyone is selling it first. Personally, a second fan would bump into my side-intake, so it's not really bugging me.
Other Thoughts: Installed on my ASRock 990FX mobo with a stock-setting FX 8350. Running all cores 100% with Fold-At-Home, keeps the CPU under 50C, under 30C above ambient. The stock cooler that came with the CPU let it reach almost 50C above ambient (70C total), so this is a great improvement.
Only thing I really didn't like was that fact that there's no indication on WHEN to stop with screws for the backplate. It has a foam front to provide isolation from the back of the board, so I just kept turning the screws until I felt it was secure (too far, and I probably would have pushed electrical contacts through the foam).
Nothing worth deducting an egg over.
