Pros: I was amazed when the migration software allowed me to move my entire Windows 7 boot drive to my new SSD. It was as easy as a few mouse clicks. I attached the 840EVO as an external USB drive using the SATA-to-USB converter included with my drive. Then I loaded the migration software. I ran the software, choosing my boot drive as the source and the SSD as the destination. Finally, I replaced my boot drive with the new SSD AND IT BOOTED UP IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT ANY ISSUE WHATSOEVER! Amazing.
The 840EVO is fast, even for an SSD. Mine was the 250 GByte model, and it is, indeed, lightening fast.
I highly recommend this drive and the use of the included software.
Cons: I have no complaints.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a very small KB. it takes up much less desk space than the ones with keypads, cursor control keys, and rows of programmable functions that I never get around to programming. It's quieter than the MicroSquash keyboard it replaces.
There are fewer parts to break.
Cons: I am greatly irritated by the design flaw which defaults to a double set of numbers while some characters (e.g. u and j) cannot be typed at all.
I am less than thrilled with the flatness of the keyboard as well. However, permanently propping up the top on a wrist rest is a good workaround.
Other Thoughts: I can't get over the design flaw which maps some of the keys to other characters. The "u" key, for example, registers as a "4." It's deliberate. The designers decided that the existing row of number keys should not be used, so they converted part of the KB to a numeric keypad. Thus, there are two ways to type a 4, but no way to type a u. It's infuriating. pressing "Function-Numlock" corrects, this, but more often than not I forget to change it until after I have messed up my password. Did they think that professional accountants were the major market for this particular keyboard?READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ENERMAX UC-12EB 120mm Case Fan
Pros: This fan is as quiet as any I have ever used. In fact, it's quieter. It's a real marvel. Even on minimum power it moves more than enough air for my computer. My CPU and motherboard temps both run in the 30's. I don't overclock.
Cons: It doesn't move as much air as some fans do. Primarily, I think, because it doesn't spin particularly fast even at full power. If you're pushing your components to the limit of heat dissipation, you'll no doubt need something else. But I can't hear this fan to tell if it's working. If I did OC, I'd consider using a case with several of these.
Other Thoughts: The magnetic, no contact, bearing is a real and actual thing. The shaft of the fan floats on an electromagnetic field, similar to the way a magnet can be suspended in the air above another magnet.READ FULL REVIEW
