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

Pros: It was stupid cheap. Got it on sale for 60 bucks. It has decent 4K read and write speeds which is essential for fast file access which deals with booting, shutting down and other operations.

Cons: COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE PERFORMANCE. I CANNOT explain how furious I am with this. Kingston has ALWAYS had above excellent quality and performance. I was always reaching for their flash memory, storage and the such. They were the first to come out of my mouth when I worked retail at sellers. However, this... This is outrageous. I am beyond infuriated with how shady and low cut this was.

I'm not going to rant, but this doesn't even deserve one egg. Stay away from this product. It is no longer worth the price you pay.

3 out of 5 eggs Weak 12v rails lead to it's death 03/14/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB 500W ATX12V v2.2 Power Supply

Pros: I got it on a sale and it looked pretty. Powered my system for as long as it was alive.

Cons: Worked for a few months then died a smoky death. The 12v rails are rated at a low amperage. I didn't know what rails were when I bought this. Had I known, I would have stayed away. Also, if you're gonna overclock, expect to not have this PSU for very long. However, it's fine to make a basic PC looks pretty.

Other Thoughts: A combined 31 amperage isn't much especially considering most CPU's also draw from the 12v rail now and can go up to nearly 200 watts if I understand correctly. Along with a GPU that's already drawing nearly 250 from a single v rail, it can quickly overdraw what it takes leading to a short life span.

BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G + SB850 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Little Package Big Surprise 11/12/2012

This review is from: BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G + SB850 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This little guy is a devil driver. It's small and compact, but still sports the 6gb/s SATA3 we've all come to love.

It runs cool (around 35 idle, 40 under load with everything else around it putting out heat) and it's AM3+ port is simply awesome. I have it set up in my old Emachine case (planning to get a Z11 soon) and it really can pack a punch.

The Bios also allows for easy overclocking. :D

Cons: It only comes with one PCIe port and because it's so close to the other PCI slots, my graphics card ended up eating my SATA slot and PCI next to it. Not a big deal because I knew that there was going to be fitting issues, so I didn't take an egg from it.

Other Thoughts: I got this about a two months ago. No problems at all other than the things listed.
