I really want another card now!
Cons: 4 eggs because its a new card and have not owned it for more than 2 days.
Other Thoughts: Newegg's new shipping system is amazing, I received my product in less than 24 hours!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing drive, blazingly fast but see Other Thoughts
Cons: see Other Thoughts
Other Thoughts: Not sure who to contact about this one but, I had gotten an email from newegg about the promotion on this SSD being $55 off, they sold out on the first day because it was an amazing deal and didn't get a chance to buy it. Here's the upsetting part, I was watching this product like a hawk to see if it would be in stock during the promotion, so they stock them the day AFTER the sale and the promo expired. I contacted newegg and told them my story and they wouldn't honor it :(
Personally I don't think thats right.....I wouldn't complain if it was something like $15 off but when its $55 then yeah thats not fair at all....I still bought the SSD and it is very fast and I have zero complaints about it.
Pros: This drive has beaten my old WD47GB Raptor by far on speed and performance. Programs start up insanely fast, hardly any recognizable lag time. 5 year warranty through WD is also a very very good plus considering an HDD's life expectancy is weak. Somehow I get the feeling this HDD will outlast 5 years with ease. I am currently running Windows 7 Pro 64bit on this drive as well as all of my applications and don't ever have to worry about space due to it being around 591 gigs after Windows install.
Cons: The only con I have with this drive is that it is rather noisy and vibrates like its on crack. I'm going to have to invest in a silencer enclosure like the Nexus Drive-A-Way because of all the vibrations. I literally have a wood clamp on it now inside of my case to keep it from vibrating as much as it does - That is the only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 eggs
Other Thoughts: Absolutely amazing performance and speeeeeeeeeed but I wish they could have made it "go through rehab" on the vibration :/
The case I have is the CoolerMaster HAF932 fyi and am using the standard drive mounts that it came with.
