Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good price for good performance 06/14/2014

This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD1 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast enough. Compare its write/read performance (using CrystalDiskMark) to a couple of other models:

- Crucial M500 240 GB SSD (2.4 GHz G530 Celeron - Sandy Bridge)
seq 477, 280
512k 439, 284
4k 26, 75
4kqd32 339, 255

- Samsung SM841 128 GB SSD (2.6/3.3 GHz Core i5 - Haswell)
seq 432, 378
512k 213, 317
4k 23, 41
4kqd32 394, 299

- Kingston v300 120 GB SSD (2.4 GHz G530 Celeron - Sandy Bridge)
seq 178, 131
512k 168, 130
4k 19, 80
4kqd32 74, 127

Cons: The M550 and Samsung 840 Pro models are faster, but premium priced.

TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent range, speed, and up time. I see five bar signal strength and 45 mps data rate in a room four walls and 40 feet away from the router. It delivers 10 mbs greater speed than my ASUS RT-N16.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I tried this router because I got excellent performance from TP-Link's wireless adapters (the TL-WN822N model is especially good) and I saw great reviews for it from customers for several online stores.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Not fast, but it's a reasonable entry-level SSD 05/10/2014

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SV300S37A/120G

Pros: Faster than my three-year old OCZ SSD. Compare the CrystalDiskMark benchmark results to a top-line Samsung SSD in my work laptop (Dell E6540):

- Kingston v300 2.5" 120 GB SSD (2.4 GHz G530 Celeron - Sandy Bridge)
seq 178 131 (read/write)
512k 168 130
4k 19 80
4kqd32 74 127

- Samsung SM841 2.5" 128 GB SSD (2.6/3.3 GHz Core i5 - Haswell)
seq 432 378 (read/write)
512k 213 317
4k 23 41
4kqd32 394 299

Cons: At much less than one hundred dollars, none.

Other Thoughts: My old OCZ SSD finally died and I quickly needed a replacement. I bought this model despite the many sour reviews. If the older models were faster and Kingston didn't change the model number of this drive, I can understand the consumer outrage. The performance/price ratio may have decreased, but I think that it's a good entry-level SSD.
