Crucial M4 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs A good drive but it went missing. 05/06/2012

This review is from: Crucial M4 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT064M4SSD2

Pros: It's a good drive but what Mike in NC said seems to be the key. Read his comments about updating the firmware.

Cons: This 'going missing thing' would be hard to figure out on a system with just one drive. Luckily I had two and was able to boot off the other and see in 'MyComputer' that the SSD suddenly wasn't showing up after awhile.

Other Thoughts: Doing the firmware update I ran the firmware program under Win7 (right click and run as Admin) it said it failed. Then on the reboot windows said it had to reboot again for the changes to take effect. Checking the hardware ID after that it was at the correct level. It had worked.

SAMSUNG S23A350H ToC Rose Black 23
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It tilts unlike a lot of reviews I've read! I was a bit disappointed until I found some others who 'cracked the code'. You have to plant it firmly at the base and then push it up at the top. I did not crack the screen in the process.

Cons: Brightness seems to vary to me as you look from high to low. To see this easier, use a photo program to copy an image of someone's face. Move the copy down the screen and you'll see there's a difference.

Other Thoughts: I have two systems hooked up to it using both inputs. It would not recognize the HDMI port if the Analog was also hooked up. What you have to do - in the Menu section go to 'Setup&Reset' and pick 'Auto Source' and set that to 'Manual'. Now it will obey you when you go to switch the source.

CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Corsair is a top brand. I just picked up this 8GB kit because it says it works for both AMD and Intel and was a great buy. I also ordered an MSI 890 GXM-G65 and AMD 955.

Cons: My fault for not checking first, so no eggs lost, but on the Corsair site they don't show the motherboard I ordered.

Other Thoughts: Someone had commented - "Runs 9-9-9-24 on 890FX @1600" so that's what I went with an MSI mb. - But am I out of luck with my mine? Any help, I'll appreciate otherwise I'll update when I get all the parts and try to install the system.
