Antec NeoECO C NeoECO 520C 520W ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great power supply, works like a charm 4 years later 01/05/2015

This review is from: Antec NeoECO C NeoECO 520C 520W ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Great power supply, got it four years ago for $49. Its affordable, from a quality brand. The cables are nicely sleeved and the construction is solid. Its very quiet and the 80+ Bronze rating is a plus. For the price, I could not have asked for a better PSU at the time. Four years later, its still running perfectly.

Cons: The price went up to around $64 at the time of writing this review. At that price point, it ceases to be competitive priced IMO. There are better options for over $60 from other reputable brands.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would recommend this power supply, as long as you get it for a good price.

SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3D/US
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Its super low profile, sleek matte black PCB, very low voltage and extremely overclockable. I've been able to push these modules to 2800 MHz for fun (stable, but I didn't keep it at those speeds because it's unnecessary with Sandy Bridge).

Cons: No longer in production :(

Other Thoughts: No idea why Samsung stopped making these amazing modules. Not they go for $100-150 USED on auctioning sites and other online retailers, and for an unopened box, nearly $200 in some sites. Ridiculous prices but people know the value of these modules!

SanDisk Extreme SDSSDX-240G-G25 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs 7 months later, highly disappointed 06/08/2013

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme SDSSDX-240G-G25 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good sequential speeds for a good price out of the box, provides ample storage for OS, apps and tons of family pictures, videos, music, etc.

Cons: Low IOPS, which is bad because, arguably, IOPS' are more import than sequential. Drives of similar price are available with much higher IOPS.
See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: When I first bought the video, I honestly loved it. It was cheap, pretty fast, and just worked. And then a few months later, things fell apart. Sequential speeds started going down faster than BP's credibility after the gulf of mexico oil spill. And no, its not because of the fulness of the drive. I tested the speeds after I first got it and filled it up with my personal files and a few applications and compared to the speeds I get now, its horrendous. From 500mb/s reads down to 300 mb/s reads. Write speeds down from 490mb/s to 250mb/s. I haven't changed the contents of this drive as I use an external SSD for my work files or files I manipulate often. The only use of this drive was to be my main boot up disk, store photoshop, my web browser and family pictures. SanDisk's tech support is mediocre to say the least and they refused to acknowledge that speeds going down by anywhere from 200 to 300 mb/s is a bad thing. My bootup time went from 10 seconds to 25. I've been building computers my whole life, first as a hobby, then as a job, and now that I work as an engineer with little free time, it has gone back to being a hobby. No I didn't install it "wrong", no I haven't subjected it to any abuse, no this isnt my first SSD, no Im not running it in IDE mode in the bios. SanDisk finally agreed to send me a replacement and it was fine for again, another six months before the speeds started tanking and my computer felt as slow as something running off of a 5,900RPM HDD. Its funny how the samsung 840 I bought from around the same time for my wifes PC is still doing just fine, despite the fact she uses that as a scratch disk for video editing, thus putting that drive through much more rigorous use.
