HyperX Savage SHSS37A/240G 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This SSD is a wonder! This SSD is inexpensive yet performs very well and can nearly saturate the entire bandwidth of SATA III. This SSD is not only fast and very competitively priced but also has a very premium aesthetic and is very visually appealing (as you can pretty clearly see in the pictures). This device has a metal inlay which is a beautiful metallic red that really pops. This drives comes with a lot of useful/considerate accessories such as a 7mm to 9mm adapter, a 2.5” to 3.5” adapter, a stylish case badge and a copy of acronis in order to migrate an existing drive (but I would suggest doing a fresh install if moving from an HDD). Another nice part about this SSD is that it is 7mm so it should fit into pretty much anything.

Cons: I couldn’t really find any serious issues with this product and it met all of the advertised specifications/features but I did think of a couple nitpicking things I noticed. One thing that could be an inconvenience is that it only comes in red so it won’t match every build. Another small issue I had when benchmarking on one of my test benches is that it kept falling short of the advertised speeds but that was only on one older system so it may have been the systems fault so I did not deduct any eggs. The final thing I noticed when compared this SSD to other SSDs spec sheets was that the active power consumption was a touch higher than other premium SSDs but in real world it should make a difference.

Other Thoughts: My final thoughts on this SSD is that it is a very competitive value to many of the other SSDs and performs as well as (or pretty close to as well) in most tests. I would highly recommend this SSD unless you have a very specific work load that will benefit from a different controller type.

Logitech C920 USB 2.0 certified (USB 3.0 ready) HD Pro Webcam
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good Webcam 07/23/2015

This review is from: Logitech C920 USB 2.0 certified (USB 3.0 ready) HD Pro Webcam

Pros: Inexpensive for an all-in-one solution and a great starting point for anyone interested in basic video chatting/recording. The video is surprisingly nice for such a small unified package. The webcam comes with an integrated usable microphone and the software suite that logitech provides is decent enough for basic usability. Has a standard camera mount on the bottom that can be used with aftermarket stands/camera gear or the integrated stand is pretty decent.

Cons: The mic quality has room for improvement but for the price you get a pretty good starting point and a good all-in-one solution. The integrated stand is a little flimsy but I didn't remove any eggs because you can use the integrated mount for a normal stand,

Other Thoughts: This product is quite a good comprehensive solution if you need something quick and simple to setup. I would probably upgrade to a dedicated mic such as the yeti soon to do any streaming but otherwise this is a very competitively priced solution.

CORSAIR RM1000i 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Even with its minor flaws the RM1000i is a solid choice of a power supply and at a competitive price. The RM1000i is sold by a reputable brand that has had many successful power supplies and comes with an impressive 7 year warranty. The RM1000i is a very visually appealing product with its nice black and white accent design which should match most, if not all, builds. Coming with the pleasant aesthetic design is the premium feel from the blacked out cables (most of them) down to the unboxing experience. The RM1000I is also 80 plus gold certified which means that most of the time it will be operating at 90+ efficiency and it is a 1000W power supply so it should be able to power pretty much any build (excluding a few fringe cases). The RM1000i is also dead silent below 50% load due to its fan being set to automatically stay off when below 50% load and even above 50% load the fan stays very quiet and it exhibits no coil whine (with the configurations I tested it). The RM1000i is also very competitively priced for what it brings to the table.

Cons: The RM1000i is a competitively priced 1000W power supply but it retains most of its premium nature thanks to Corsairs clever engineers/sales teams. The only noticeable areas that they “skimped” on were the cables where I wish that they were all the blacked out style of cables or the sleeving was of higher quality. Another annoyance is that the power supply is very large! These are the only easily apparent cost savings measures they used and are more than reasonable considering what you get at this priced point.

Other Thoughts: Great power supply for the performance, if I needed a 1000W PSU this would be my number one choice as of posting this review. The unit I received was extremely quiet, had very few major flaws that I would worry about. If you are doing a show build you may want to switch the cables but that is the only noticeable area that they needed to do a little cost savings. The rest of the cost saving methods they used on this PSU seem to be very well hidden/compensated for because the only thing that stood out to be was not-the-best cable sleeving quality (I would rather they had just been blacked out like the rest of the cables). One feature that I don’t really care about is the fact that you can switch between multi or single rail operation. I guess some people would be happy about it but for 99.9% of us would have no issues just using a multi rail power supply, even though some marketing has convinced people they need single rail PSU’s.
