SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-MTE250BW mSATA 250GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This thing is blazing fast. The numbers have even exceeded what Samsung stated (around 550 MB/s if I remember right). My laptop boots from nothing in about 10 seconds, windows took 10 minutes to install. Make sure to use the magician software from their website (www.samsung.com/ssd, then register your product) and it will boost your performance more than you expect.

Cons: The cloning software was a little wacky. I initially cloned my HDD to the SSD and it seemed to boot just fine, but then I would get flashes of orange and my programs would all shut down. I tried to wipe the drive and clone it again, but it kept giving me errors. Finally I decided to just do a clean install of Windows 8.1 and it actually took less time than what I wasted trying to clone the drive. Afterwards I simply transferred whatever I needed from the HDD, formatted it, and now I use it as a storage drive for documents and such.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself some time and just do a clean install on the SSD.

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Green LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks really cool. It seems to push a lot of air as well, though since I have a huge CPU cooler and a big case I haven't noticed too much of a difference. My GPU is noticably cooler though.

Cons: If this fan is running at max speed it is LOUD. I initially had it plugged in directly to the power supply, but when I moved it over to the motherboard I was able to control it and now it is no louder than any of my other fans.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a good fan, looks awesome, and I got it for $3 with a mail in rebate.

Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCI Express combo Adapter - 867 Mbps+300Mbps - Internal
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: My laptop was giving me lots of trouble with the stock card, so I bought this and it is blazing fast. Easily connects to both 2.4 and 5 ghz wifi and is very fast on both. Easy to install if you can find your laptop wifi card.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure to check with your BIOS developer to see if this card is compatible with your BIOS. Some companies (such as Lenovo, which I have) put a whitelist on their BIOS, preventing it from recognizing any foreign wifi cards. Its a really dirty trick as it forces you to buy from them and they can charge exorbitant prices. I was able to get help to modify the BIOS to allow this card, but it was a huge pain and nerve wracking, as you can brick your PC.
