SanDisk Ultra Plus SDSSDHP-256G-G25 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Not the fastest but gets the job done 11/29/2013

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Plus SDSSDHP-256G-G25 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Not the fastest SSD but the price was good and has been rock solid for over 5 months now. Big boost in perf as I was using a 1 TB Samsung HDD as my OS drive before - haven't noticed any issues at all whatsoever. Comes with a bracket, but I didn't need it. 256 GB is the sweet spot for me between price and storage.

Cons: None - buy it, I don't know why you'd pay extra for slightly faster performance as in real life I doubt it matters a whole lot for most people.

Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works fine 11/08/2013

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: Works fine.

Cons: One issue that I didn't realize till I got the reader is that inserting the SD card sideways can cause issues if you're using something else in one of the USB ports in front. The card protrudes and you'll need to rearrange devices so that you can plug both in. I prefer the rosewill card reader (more than 5 years old now!) where you insert the sd card into a slot in the back rather than the side.

Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great high quality case - Well thought out 05/05/2013

This review is from: Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply

Pros: - Very high build quality. This is not a cheap case with light parts that will bend and deform easily.
- Excellent capacity for expansion and very well thought out layout. To give some perspective, I bought the case in 2010. I recently bought an SSD to upgrade my rig and the case has a mounting slot at the bottom for a SSD. Adding the SSD was a breeze.
- Excellent set of accessories and screws. They don't skimp on anything.
- Silicon grommets for your hard-drives - these small things make a big difference to the noise level and vibration transfer to the case or other parts itself
- Comes with a good quality power supply. 500W is more than enough for my rig (Gigabyte p55-ud3, Intel Core i5, Passive cooled Radeon 4750, 4 hard drives, 16 GB RAM). The cables on the power supply are comfortable length and I've not had any issues with cable length or cable availability yet.
- Looks understated and elegant. This is a personal choice and I hate cases that try to make your rig look like an alien space ship on steroids. This is very professional looking with no random lights or holes to show the innards.
- Side mounted HDD - makes it a lot easier to add/remove HDDs esp. if you add an after-market heatsink.
- Lots of room to add big heatsinks. I added the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ and no issues at all with room.
- The 120mm fan it comes with is very quiet at the lowest setting.

Cons: - No access to back of motherboard after install. Basically you can't remove one side of the case which means once you install your motherboard you have to take it out if you add an after-market heatsink. This was a PITA.
- Comes with only one single 120mm fan. It is not PWM controllable which really annoys me. Has an attached switch that is not easily mountable without drilling the back of the case which I'm not interested in. I don't understand why it is so hard to just ship a PWM controllable fan with this thing.
