OCZ Vertex Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast drive. I had heard they had some initial problems. When I first purchased it I immediately flashed to a firmware that added Trim support. Reliably worked fine for just about 3 years. (still somewhat functional, but explorer started crashing often in windows using this drive as C:)

Cons: Initially had to do a firmware update that was in dos mode at the time (not terribly hard, or disconcerting to me but I could see it being off putting to others.) the failure of the drive was at least intermittent, I believe I can still salvage data off of it.

Other Thoughts: My First SSD, was a good ride while it lasted

5 out of 5 eggs The positive reviews I read were right! 12/31/2010

This review is from: ASUS P7P55D-E LX LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Post on first boot, only requires 6 screws for mounting, CPU fan mounts very nicely, and didn't have any problems with components in the way.

Cons: None; I've had problems with ASUS generations before and was a little wary of purchasing another ASUS motherboard after my last experience, but this motherboard is rock solid.

Other Thoughts: Kind of unrelated: I swapped out motherboard, CPU & RAM with this motherboard new CPU and RAM, and win7 loaded and installed all the drivers necessary without the bluescreen I expected; (I Switched from AMD to Intel; and from a VIA chipset to an Intel one) I'm pleasantly surprised at the stability and speed of this motherboard.

Pros: Works great, going from 1GB to 2GB ram really make things smoother in OSX.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Make sure to find a good set of screwdrivers for the memory panel, Philips-0 screwdriver is the only one that should work, I have a couple kinds of philips 0 screwdrivers and only one worked.
