This review is from: Crucial BX100 500GB SATA 2.5 inch Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT500BX100SSD1
Pros: Price for performance and space; comes with spacer/dampener for laptop install.
Cons: still pricier than conventional drives but that's just the way things are for now; No software for cloning
Other Thoughts: replaced a 256gb SSD I bought last year and this works flawless. I have a copy of arconis and was able to clone my original drive to this in about 6 minutes moving 200gb over use 3.0READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, well built, on and off switch, USB 3.0
Cons: The led light is a tad bright.
Other Thoughts: works great out of the box. Cloned my OS SSD drive to a new one I purchased here and it took less than 6 minutes to move about 200gb. Also helped me clean up a drawer of drives I've collected over the years. Overall very happy and thinking of ordering a few for work.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 960 2GB Mini ITX OC EDITION
Pros: Solid midrange card for the price and it sips power to boot. Small form factor doesn't clutter up case. Very quiet!
Cons: None so far or that I can think of!
Other Thoughts: I replaced an AMD 270X card which wasn't having any issues and is a decent card in it's own right. This card is just a smidgen higher in tier as far as performance between the two. So why did I replace it? I have a minitower PC and I felt that the AMD card I had was just a bit big and power hungry for my taste and this card is just the opposite while still delivering better performance.
Before installation, I ran the AMD driver uninstall utility, powered down my PC, swapped cards, booted up, headed to NVIDIAs website to download the latest drivers, install them and up and running again, all in about 15 minutes or so.
Couldn't be more pleased and just to my naked eye World of Warcraft looks a little better and seems to run a bit smoother to me on the Ultra settings with some minor tweaks (turning sunshaft off and reducing shadows).
