Pros: -MLC memory cells (as opposed to TLC)
-Price (was on sale)
Cons: -When the drive gets to be about 92% full the speed dramatically slows down (to about 1/4 the write speed of an empty drive)
-MLC memory cells (as opposed to SLC)
-3 year warranty (as opposed to most drives which have 5 year)
Other Thoughts: Installing Windows 7 non-SP1 on this drive requires finding the Intel RST drivers and including them during the OS installation.
From what I've researched this drive is not substantially better than the previous generation MX100 or even BX100.
It took a lot of experimentation and testing to discover to what extent the drive can be used before substantial slowdown.
In retrospect I likely should have gotten an equivilent drive from another reputable manufacturer, but given I got this drive at a modest sale it seems good so far.
Pros: -It feels nice in the hand
Cons: -The accuracy seems questionable. Measuring a black metal pot of boiling water showed it be anywhere from 80 degrees celsius to 105 degrees celsius, and the temperature range would vary if I was close or medium or far from the pot.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller w/ Five 30 watts Channels
Pros: -The power-on indicator LED is a bit bright, but not the annoying "burns with the power of 1000 suns" which seems so popular with manufacturers recently
-Fan power cords are fairly long.
Cons: -At 100% it feels like the fan doesn't quite have as much speed as when plugged directly into the power supply.
-The LED light bleeds out to the first two sliders. (You can put some paper or something to help block this)
Other Thoughts: -I think the mesh-looking front would have looked better as flat plastic.READ FULL REVIEW
