This review is from: SmithMicro Manga Studio EX 4 - (PC & Mac)
Pros: Free after mail in rebate. Works fine with Windows 7.
Cons: Disks are labeled backwards (Mac DVD is labeled Windows and vice versa). Interface feels very dated. The FREE EX Content Pack is not obtainable as the website to claim it only says "success" after registering (no links provided). Cannot contact SmithMicro without creating a support account first.
Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money. Version 5 may be worth it, but this version certainly isn't.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: See previous review.
Cons: Mouse wheel button will fail to register 100% of the time at the click point an about 75% of the time past the click point. Apparently this is a known issue judging by other people's reviews. DO NOT ORDER THIS MOUSE, you will regret it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I had an existing 512GB SSD which I needed to upgrade due to capacity limitations. My preferred brand is OCZ, but as they don't make a 1TB SATA drive, and Samsung is quite the the leader in SSD manufacturing, and the price per GB was nice, I decided to go with this drive. I chose the Evo over the Pro as multiple review sites have stated that non professional users will not benefit from the extra features and durability of Pro drives.
Cons: After using cloning software, not the included software, to prepare it and enabling RAPID, I ran Samsung's benchmark in Samsung Magician to compare its performance to my OCZ Vector and Vertex 460 which I use for my games and temp files/page file, respectively. Sequential read and write speed is at 938/2566MB/s, respectively, as a result of RAPID, but the 64280 IOPS read and 35926 IOPS write speed is well below Samsung's specification. It is using the latest firmware, EMT01B6Q.
Other Thoughts: It's a fast drive. I'm wondering if Samsung still needs to work a few bugs out of the firmware, but even at the current speeds it's faster than any home user needs.READ FULL REVIEW
