Pros: Good capacity/price. Best SSD I've had - I've had 4 others. It's really fast - scores 7.9 on WEI in Win 7 64 bit on a SATA II MB. About 2X as fast as my SATA II 60 GB OCZ. Noticeable improvement in overall boot time and performance. No BSODs.
Cons: Not cheap enough for high capacity use, No other issues.
Other Thoughts: can't wait till these are 1 TB for this cost.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works very well without any negative issues. Very quiet, very cool running. I currently play War Thunder and get 80 - 90 fps with everything EVERYTHING maxed out to beyond movie quality. I tried it out on WoW and same thing. The WoW shadows even were maxed and I got 80-90 FPS. I underclocked it to keep it silent and still get over 60 FPS everywhere (with v-sync turned on). I get no glitches, no artifacts - no issues. It's tiny and does a fabulous job. I got this on sale here + a rebate. I couldn't say no to that deal. It replaced a Radeon 4890 that I got 4 1/2 hard years of use from and was still working. The boost in quality, coolness and quietness was impressive. It scores 172% better for me than the 4890 did and that was a hi-performance model. It only needs 1 8 pin power connector instead of 2 6 pin plugs. It comes with an adapter so you can use a 6 pin plug. I won't need another card for quite a long time. MSI is my main go-to company for MBs and vid cards. My MSI MB is still perfectly fine after about 5 hard years - I had it running in a semi truck over the road in a compact case for 3 years without issue. Performance of this card is on par with the Nvidia GTX 760. This is more card than I needed but the price was great and I would've been nuts to buy the R7 265 or R9 270 (basic model) when I got this for about the same. I do like the Nvidia products but AMD beats them currently in $/performance.
Cons: A bit on the thick side - it barely fit but it does fit. It's a tad fatter than my 4890. It didn't come with a crossfire connector but I don't need it anyhow. It makes direct contact with one of my ram locking tabs. This is as much a fault of the MB as the vid card but it still works fine.
Other Thoughts: This is a really excellent product. I love the small size. It allows for better airflow in any size case. I can see the mainstream cards going to this size just because it's better for airflow.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Diablotek RPA-A95BK Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Looks really good. Very light yet solid and tight. A near-black dark grey. Looks very elegant. It's aluminum!!!! Even the front bezel is aluminum! It's a mid tower and has enough room for full size ATX everything and whatever you could want to put in it. Nothing refurbished about this except maybe its cardboard shipping box was touched up. It looks absolutely new without a scratch and has all its parts and a nice manual. This is the cheapest aluminum case of any size I have seen anywhere. Both side panels slide off easily after the 2 thumb screws per side are removed. Ordered it the 25th. It shipped the 26th and it arrived the 29th - free shipping. I wanted the cheapest aluminum tower style case I could find and found this beauty for $34.99. I am very pleased.
Other Thoughts: I have seen $100 cases that weren't as nice as this one.READ FULL REVIEW
