This review is from: Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive
Pros: I was skeptical at first but the drive performs well. I replaced a WD 7200 black 750GB / 16 MB cache with this drive after cloning with Apricorn’s: Notebook Drive Upgrade Kit. I must say that loading times are much faster after 5-10 reboots and I haven’t lost any loading time on games or apps. 8 GB of NAND and 64 MB of cache does the trick with a 5400rpm drive… go figure! I will keep my WD black as is, just in case of future drive failure, only time will tell…but so far it’s been great.
Cons: None so far but only time will tell.
Other Thoughts: Good value to performance, I would purchase this over a 7200 RPM drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Crysis Max ED, Far Cry 2, Grid, etc. all perform very well with no lag (1600x900 res.) @ very high (max) settings. The value of this card is - THE BEST OUT THERE!
Other Thoughts: This card runs hot which means the Dark Knight cooling solution is working, and very efficient. I have 3 fans, one blowing directly on the card and two exhausting air. Case temps stay low with this configuration. Card pulls in excess of 300 watt @ full load. Dual 6 pin power connectors. Have fun with it!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great sticks. Perfect ram for my Asus P5QL/EPU. I love the little red eyes.
Other Thoughts: Ram installs as 800 so you will have to change it to 1066 in the BIOS. This is stated in the documentation that come with this ram.READ FULL REVIEW
