Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This SSD in Conjunction with a SYBA SI-PEX40065 PCI-Express x1 has drastically improved the over all experience of my Aging 2009 built machine.

Machine would Drag prior when doing even simple tasks doe to a Major IO bottleneck (IDE OS Drive).

With the SSD for my OS drive (Linux Mint) it flies in comparison. Operations that took Minutes prior now take a few seconds (system booting, extracting a movie from rar files and so forth).

Went with this one because of the price. It was my first SSD so I didn't want to invest to much when initially trying things out. But I would not hesitate on my next purchase, thoroughly hooked on the performance. Truly brought my Aging system back to life.

If you are debating scrapping an Older system this is something you should consider. Other than Maxing out Ram, this SSD is a HUGE performance boost.

Thank you Kingston !!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again I probably would go with a larger storage capacity. This is Plenty big for my OS, but I quickly got spoiled by the speed and would like to do other things with it as well...

5 out of 5 eggs Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan 02/22/2015

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Took my idle CPU temp from 70C down to 30C on this AMD Phenom 8750 !!

Got this on sale for $34.99 ... I would consider this a $40 - $50 Cooler

Cons: As others Stated it is Huge and Very Tall. My case is setting with the Side Panel off right now and I may very well have to break out the Dremel tool for a Mod to get it back on. My bad for not taking the recommendations of others to do the proper measurements on my case prior.

Also, the Back plate install for AM2 is very tricky to accomplish if you are doing it by yourself. I managed, but it was frustrating to say the least.
