This review is from: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens
Pros: I pair this with a 7D and this lens is the sharpest in my collection (17-55, 85 1.4). I needed something longer and this fits the bill. It produces amazing color and even up there with my wifes Nikon 85 1.4D (known as the cream machine) in terms of brokah. King of the Macro lenses. Thing thing will take the most beautiful macro shot you've ever seen! The IS is awesome for handhold and walk around event and macro photography. Very fun lens!
Cons: It will work for sports and is fast enough, however you'll almost certainly need a monopod/tripod to track since it's not a zoom obviously. For indoor sports I would recommend something fast at 1.2 - 1.8 and at least 85mm.
For video the IS is a little loud compared to my 17-55, however if your shooting video on the 7D you should be using something other than the in cam mic anyway.
Other Thoughts: If you plan on getting a UV filter - I would only recommend getting something like the Hoya HD UV filters. Their spendy but they allow in the most like up to something like 99.7 percent.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial CT64M225 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Running on newest 1916 firmware (runs Trim + GC), Smoking Fast, completely quiet, Rock solid stability, no hiccups or slowdown, .1 access time. Used a v-raptor before and was 65 seconds to boot, now looking at 29 seconds from when i turn on my computer. 5 year warranty and tech support has been superb. adv. at up to 200 get a respectable avg of 191.00 using a xfx 790i, windows 7 64 bit ult.
Cons: 64gb will fill up pretty fast. I recommend this as your main drive only and add another 128 + ssd for apps, photos, intensive files etc.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quietest power supply I have tested. Even quieter than my corsair 850hx. The corsair had a very very slight high pitched hum to it, where this power supply was pretty much dead silent and is only noticeable if you are putting your ear up to the power supply or really really listening for it with all other fans in your case turned off :-). Cables were very nicely packaged, great quality. You can't tell by the pictures, but it actually looks pretty sweet too!
Cons: Not really a con but tops at 85% efficient. The corsair hx is about 92% efficient and has a longer better 7 year warranty compared to Nexus 3 year. If you have a small micro atx case, the standard cables may be a bit long and unnecessary.
Other Thoughts: If your in the market for the most effiecient best warrenty, go with the corsair. If you want the quietest go with the Nexus. Awesome power supply!READ FULL REVIEW
