This review is from: Sennheiser HD 201 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Around-Ear Hi-fi Headphone
Pros: They feel good on your head.
Cons: Mine sounded terrible connected to any audio devices I chose. If you're an audiophile then pass on these!!
Other Thoughts: With all the positive reviews that I read I had semi high hopes that this would be a decent replacement. Plugging them into my HTC Thunderbolt, HTC One, Hisense Sero 7, HP G7 Laptop, Home & Work PC's and even my RCA 5.1 Surround Sound setup (which would have more clean power to send).. it just didn't make any difference. The sound quality was just bad. Almost like the speakers weren't getting enough juice. Very disappointed... matter of fact I tried to give these away to my coworkers at work and they still sit in the common area! That's how bad these are!! No one even wants these for free!! Save your money and look for the Rosewill RHTS-12005. For the same price..those rock!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: *Solid little SSD so far - no performance or reliability issues
*Based of SandForce controller
Cons: *Wish it was faster..... otherwise it's been solid.
Other Thoughts: Purchased on sale for 57.99 a few weeks ago. I dropped this into a work laptop, Dell Inspiron 14z with an i5 & 4GB of ram running Windows 7. Absolute improvement over the stock WD Blue 640GB drive it came with. Boot time went from 1 Minute 27 seconds down to just 25 seconds.

So, not a speed demon by any stretch. But at under 60 bucks it def worth a look.
This review is from: ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+ AMD 880G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Other Thoughts: Recently my uncle was unfortunate enough to have his house struck by lightning. Not only killing his 55in Samsung Smart TV, AC Unit, Refrig... but zapping his computer as well. Powersupply & motherboard were shot. I tested his CPU, an AMD Athlon II X4 640 in one of my test boards and it worked just fine. So we decided it was time for some performance upgrades as well.
We picked up an Antec Earthwatts 380w PSU, this AsRock board & decided to retire his old 320GB Samsung hard drive and swap in a Samsung 840 Evo 120GB SSD. We then relegated the Samsung drive to storage duties.
Once we put it all together and reloaded Windows he's been on cloud 9 ever since. The X4 640 can now truly shine with the SSD and he doesn't have to wait 2+ minutes for his PC to boot. More like 17 seconds! He's amazed.
So far, we've been running for a little over 1 week with no problems. Install went smoothly, the price was right and all said for 150 bucks we were able to get my uncle back in the computer race. Absolutely Recommended.
