This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Board worked out of the box with i5 3750k. No bent pins. I am very happy.
Cons: The included software is pretty disgusting. X Fast Lan is a box that is always displayed and when you click on it it will take you to some webpage. Norton trial is included with the default "install drivers" box from the included CD. Some program that pins a big red box named something like "Zulu" to the start menu is also part of the "drivers" and imbeds imbeds itself into IE. The audio software is called "THX studio settings" and it screws up any equalizer settings you have by only emphasizing the highs and the lows...if you like to listen to foot steps and always imagine you are in a wind tunnel it is useful, it isn't customizable...there is an "upgrade" option that might help. I closed the super fast usb optimizing software but i am sure it is useful too.
Other Thoughts: Very nice! It works! CPU detected! RAM detected(pc 1600 1.5v 126.96.36.199)!
TBH if it wasn't a generation old and on the cheap side i'm not sure i would have bought it from the egg with all their dissatisfied customers.
Pros: fast on old laptop, garbage collection
Cons: This is advertised as a laptop ssd, and includes the enclosure to recycle your old laptop hd. ****************** This drive is not suitable for a laptop****** 1W idle, and 6.4W active **** The most favorable comparison you can make is that it has the same idle power usage as a spinning ***gate ***entus, and double the power use when active ******* The least favorable comparison you can make is with some power sipping ssd's, 5 x the Idle power use, 5 x the activeREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ36-016G-P36
Pros: It slides in and out of the housing.
Cons: I tested it with 50MB to 1GB writes and only got about 4.5MBs. The fact that it took 1 hour to fill up is burned in my memory.
Other Thoughts: The read speed was good. Only the extremely patient are going to get that far, am I right?? So, wait and be rewarded with this cute little stick.READ FULL REVIEW
