Pros: -Fast (even compared to some other SSDs)
-Free cloning software key is included.
-Includes 2.5" to 3.5" adapter
-4 year warranty
-Nice build quality
For my main desktop I noticed a speed increase when I swapped out my 180 GB SSD for this one. Boot up was a couple seconds faster and loading screens go by a second or 2 faster in games that I store on the drive.
The cloning software works perfectly and is easy to use.
I always like when an SSD includes all the hardware needed to install it into a desktop, having the 2.5" to 3.5" adapter is nice for people without a 2.5" slot in their case.
4 years is a very nice warranty length, that makes me happy to see. I have heard good things about OCZ's warrantys being upheld easily.
The build quality of the drive itself is very nice. It has some weight to it and doesn't feel like I could crust in my hand like some other SSDs that I have owned.
Cons: -There are no real cons come to mind
2 things I can think of that may be worth mentioning: The Acronis software that is included for free is a the 2013 edition, which is obviously a bit outdated now, but it still works perfectly and it is free software anyways.
Also, past reviews make me wonder about the reliability - however, I have not had a single issue in the almost 2 weeks that I have used this, plus a 4 year warranty makes me feel safer about that as well.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very impressed with this drive. I highly recommend it for someone looking to get a nice sized SSD with good speeds at a decent price.
The speeds seem good. Averaging all my tests I got:
Sequential Reads: 461 MB/s
Sequential Writes: 452 MB/s
Random Reads: 402 MB/s
Random Writes: 447 MB/s
I have had a few OCZ drives in the past and they have all been very reliable so far. One is even in a PC that belongs to someone who has somehow managed to ruin countless HDDs and a few SSDs and is still running strong after almost a year now.
For once my cat has no input to share. The product speaks for itself. It has been a nice upgrade for me and I highly recommend it!
Pros: -It just looks amazing
-Colors are the best I have ever seen on a monitor
-Settings are nearly perfect out of the box
-FreeSync is very nice
Let me just start this off by saying this is by far the best monitor I have ever used. The Ultra-Wide resolution just looks great. It is very immersive when gaming and really makes a big difference. The large size also helps with productivity, I can have so many things on the screen at once and see everything that is going on.
The colors on this monitor are so good that I had to spend hours trying to correct the colors on my OTHER monitors instead of messing with this one out of the box… and they still couldn’t match the quality of this display. Part of the reason for this is this monitor has a good amount of brightness, it helps show off the colors much better.
Freesync is nice and does make a noticeable difference – games look so much smoother with it on. It seems to remove any small input lag as well as remove any screen tearing that occur without it.
The software for splitting the monitor into multiple screens actually works very easily and pretty well. It was actually helpful to have it split into 4 sections when researching for a project.
The stand is nice, easy to tilt, and has 2 heights that can be used. The monitor also easily wall-mounts, even with a small wall-mount it doesn’t have any issues.
Cons: -The stand does not swivel side to side.
I had a lot of trouble thinking of a con at all. But, on its stand it cannot swivel from side to side, so that is something to keep in mind. I personally wall-mount my monitors so this is not an issue for me at all.
Other Thoughts: -Speakers
While the built in speakers don’t compare with an actual speaker system, they do seem much higher quality than the average speakers you can find in monitors. It is a nice added bonus for people who use the monitor speakers.
I have always used middle-of-the-line monitors, but after getting this one I don’t think I will be able to do that anymore. This monitor’s display looks considerably better than any of the other monitors I have ever owned. The display is just looks great, colors cannot be beat, and it being IPS is just amazing for letting other people watch or having a video on while doing things away from my PC.
I highly recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a high-end monitor. Its color accuracy is just spectacular – combined with all the space it provides, makes this monitor a great choice for someone who does design work. The 21:9 is my new preferred aspect ratio for gaming after using this monitor. FreeSync is a nice feature. Even my cat seems reasonably impressed with the monitor as I write this review.
Pros: -Still working great after 3 months
-Feel sturdy (not cheap)
These are the ONLY extremely low priced cords I have found that have actually held together for more than a month or two. I am very happy with the quality, especially for the great price.
Cons: -None come to mind
Other Thoughts: These were shipped from outside of the US, so shipping time was quite a bit longer than I would have liked. Work great on my ipad mini 2 and iphone 5S.READ FULL REVIEW
