Pros: They work at the rated speed, and the system is stable during stress tests.
Other Thoughts: They are shorter than normal DIMMs; about the same height as the clips that hold them in. This is useful in some small cases or if your big CPU cooler is getting in the way.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a nice compact size and except for the power supply, the design is good. You can remove the drive cage to make mounting drives easier. For a small case you can get to everything easily. I found no sharp edges on the inside.
Cons: Cheap materials, but that is to be expected at this price. The power supply fan is loud. Don't bother getting a quiet CPU cooler; the PS fan drowns a out stock CPU HS/fan. If you want something quiet, buy a better case. I deducted an egg, because even at this cheap price I expect the PS to be quieter at least at low loads.
Other Thoughts: You may be wondering, like I was, what the specs meant about the internal 3.5" (short) drive bay. The cords from the PS are in the way of one of the internal drive bays. I was able to put a SSD in the short drive bay and a full size HD in the other internal bay. But I don't think two normal size 3.5" drives would fit.
Some reviews for similar sized cases would need low profile memory or they would be in the way of the optical drive. I did get the low profile memory, but now I don't think that was neccessary. Normal height memory would fit, but not with tall heat spreaders.
This review is from: Intel X25-V SSDSA2MP040G2R5 2.5" 40GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Great way to speed up a slow system.
Cons: At 40G only you OS and perhaps a small program or two will fit.
Other Thoughts: I have this on my media computer. Win 7 64-bit on the X 25 and all the movies on a 1TB HD.READ FULL REVIEW
