Pros: SSD control software that came with the drive was expecially good for learning how to get the most performance with your SSD.

Cons: When new this drive would register 7.8 from WEI, 7.9 is what had been expected. A year later it is 6.9. With Rapid Mode enabled, it now reads 3275 read, and 2558 Write. Nice high numbers but, the WEI was only raised up to 7.1.
Aside from the numbers, it never has been as snappy as a Mushkin SSD first felt.

Other Thoughts: The drive has been reliable all through my tinkering. I wish the Samsung software had come with the Mushkin, because then I would have learned the needed adjustments instead of an RMA false ending. . Kingston also offered starter software, but that was it. When SSD's were brand new to the market, the rest left me alone to figure it all by myself, and adjustments were not made automatically with Windows 7, my firmware would never engage with the Mushkin. This Samsung gets. 5-stars for relibility, and 3-stars for actual use speed. Unless rapid mode was in use, the Writes speeds have always registered a hundred more than read. Isn't it always supposed to be the other way around? Yesterday read was 325 only. Went back to Rapid Mode; even though it feels the same, the numbers at least have the right perspective.

Coboc EA-AUD-DIG2ANA SPDIF Digital Coax & Optical Toslink to Analog Stereo RCA L/R Audio Converter Adapter Metal Cover - 2CH-LPCM 24-bit/96KHz DAC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: My friend, who had me buy this adapter, finally gets sound out of his PC speakers.

Cons: There is no left channel sound. It is the same with the coax sound out, or from toslink out.His Samsung TV, and Blue Ray, are set correctly, but still no left channel sound on either.

Other Thoughts: The sound is set to PCM, and there is no choice for any other.

AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: The review for this product is a great, particularly the one-with WEI scores. Its gave me a general idea for cparison between this AMD, and the earlier AMD 970 in use at this end. Both arer 4-core and the CPU is clocked @ 3.9 GHz. The motherboard is a Gigabyte 880 GMA, the graphics are Asus GTX 560. It is currently stock speed> The hard drive is a 120 gig Samsung SSD.WEI: 7.5, 7.5, 7.7, 7.7, 7.9.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This was good news. Computers are trying-great fun to build. And I still have a good one! It helps me to be patient, because my new Fractal D4 yells often. It was my choice of my next build mainly for its silent design. When watching the video reviews here on Newegg, my choice was cemented. It will be a clean design with any wire hardly seen. I went back to a window case this time. The Noctua cooler up top looks good while doing a fantastic job. Current CPU temp 39 C with a 77 room temp...not bad!
