Pros: I bought a Crucial SSD a couple of years ago for my wife's Toshiba laptop and it's still running at Warp 10 with many thousands of trouble free hours behind it.
A friend of mine has an HP desktop which started having problems booting and asked me for help. The HDD on his machine was ok and but I was going to have to do a reformat. I told him about SSD's and he asked if I could put one on his computer. I said sure. So, I ordered the Crucial and a copy of Windows 7 Pro x64, did the installation, and now he has an SSD for his boot and a 1 TB HHD for storage and a real copy of Windows.
I waited a few months before I posted this to give those who may read this a more accurate review because you never know what will happen.
The Crucial continues to run great. My friend is not a gamer. His computer is used for general and entertainment purposes.
Cons: The SSD, none!!
The HP computer? My gosh, this was a $800 desktop. The wiring on the inside was pathetic. No cable management at all. The assemblers took no pride in their work.
Other Thoughts: Yes, I'd recommend this to others and that's the number one reason I ordered this for him. I didn't want him to be calling me and say, that SSD you ordered for me is junk.
I'm a fan and a believer in the reliability of Crucial's SSD's.
Pros: Follow the easy calibrate instructions, put it approx. 2 inches from the forehead press the trigger and voila, you have your temperature.
Cons: The batteries were dead on arrival. No biggie as we have a box of SP batteries handy.
Other Thoughts: This is what we've been wanting for years.
Also tested it on on the forehead of our dog, but evidently, their forehead isn't a spot that's accurate. If it was, our dog would be suffering from hypothermia.
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Military Green Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: I waited a few weeks before posting this to give me time to own this case so I could give those considering this case a more accurate review.
The below Newegg link - if Newegg will allow me to post it - is the case I had prior to the Corsair Vengeance Series c70
I had the side and front panels off. My wife hated it with a passion. Called it a pile of ugly junk. I told her it's akin to a street rod without the hood, showing the engine. She wouldn't bite. This case was over 10 years old and long obsolete. All I did was move the 3-year-old components I already had over to the new Corsair case.
If anyone reading this who may think the Corsair Vengeance C70 case may be cheaply made, you'd be wrong, very wrong. This case is heavy metal and solid. It won't strain your back to carry it although it does have some weight to it but it's no flyweight.
The paint - It's first class. I haven't seen a single missed spot.
Real life appearance - IMO, it looks absolutely great. Kinda reminds me of a military ammo box. The clip-on side panels are easy to get off and easy to put back in place. For me, it's the easiest of any case I've ever owned.
The carrying handles - These are for real, not just for looks or a novelty. This really adds to the overall ammo box look.
Cable management - There's nothing I can say that will do this thing justice. The Engineers who designed this case are to be commended on a spectacular job and their attention to detail.
The 3 fans - Totally silent, even to my wife who can hear grass growing.
Cons: I don't particually like the 2 perforated fan spots on the side panel window. BUT, I was fully aware of this before I made the purchased. I located a company that manufactures a solid window that's mildly tinted for $20. But I'll consider that later.
The front panel cover - It takes a bit of patience to master removing and putting it back on. All you have to do is slightly bend the 6 metal tabs that secure it to the case and it comes off and on easily. And no, these tabs are not fragile and easily broken when bent. I learned this trick from going through the Corsair and other computer case related website forums. There's even a Corsair Vengeance C70 owners club with just about anything you want to know or have issues with. Just Google it.
The reset switch - Not a con - I tested it thinking it may be a reboot. Nope, it's a reset just as it says. If your computer freezes up or becomes unresponsive, this will get you out without having to hit the power switch.
Other Thoughts: Would I recommend this case to my friends? Absolutely!
Would I buy this same product again? The answer is yes, I would!
What would I change? If I were calling the shots at Corsair I would make one of the removable front bay covers with a center pop out to accommodate a 3.5-inch add-on such as a multi-card reader, USB hub or something like that. Perhaps that would help to ensure a more professional look without buying a 5.25-inch adapter. That's it for me. This case is near perfect on everything.
Corsair, you did one heck of a great job with this case. I'm not one of those who changes to the latest and greatest type persons, so, this case will be with me for many, many years down the road.
