Pros: It is the first 7mm 1TB laptop HDD, suits well for Ultrabooks. So far working without problem in my Samsung Series 5 NP530U4E Ultrabook. I did not run speed benchmarks, but feels as fast as the 9mm 1TB 5400RPM HDDs.
Cons: -Noisy, produce twice the spinning and clicking noise as my previous Seagate Momentus Thin 500GB HDD. It turns off very often for few seconds and start spinning again. I start to hate hearing that every time.
-Expensive, had to buy in the USA, than manage here to Europe. It was still expensive.
Other Thoughts: It could be much better with 8-24GB integrated SSD cache, not sure where those HDDs are, since WD were enthusiast to release 7mm 1TB drive with SSD cache.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The best 2x4GB Memory for AMD Trinity, it run 1600MHz, CL9 near 1.35V. That also involve cool operation and extended battery time.
Cons: I do not know better Trinity memory than these modules.
Other Thoughts: Now I'd like to see better RAMs, like 1600MHz CL7 or 1866MHz CL9 modules near 1.35V.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Working perfectly and fast! Before I had lot's of trouble with Sandforce chip based SSDs, but with this Samsung all the problems are disappeared.
Cons: price, but worth to invest the extra few $$.
Other Thoughts: I had to install Samsung Magician SSD program in Windows 7 compatibility mode, otherwise won't install under Windows 8.READ FULL REVIEW
