Most Favorable Review

Very good budget upgrade

Team Group GX1 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) T253X1120G0C101
Team Group GX1 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) T253X1120G0C101

Pros: I bought two of these and really couldn't be happier after several days of use. Of course it'll take years rather than days to be sure of reliability but so far so good. The three year warranty is reassuring.

Cons: SMART data displays temp as 100 C all the time. My older SSD's display no temp which is preferable to a false temp.

Overall Review: Price point considered I can't find any real fault with these drives and I'll likely buy more.

Most Critical Review

Not so great

Nippon Labs FLM-3078R 9 LED Flashlight 3.25" in Red Color

Pros: Small and should be bright

Cons: Only 6 of the 9 LEDs work but it's not worth returning

Actually pretty great

Pros: I've been pleasantly surprised. After changing from cool temp to warm, and changing the co mode to movie things look pretty great. Oh, I also bumped the brightness down from 90 to 80. Otherwise I have no major complaints.

Cons: Wobbly stand/base. This worries me enough I'm planing on using the vesa mount either with a steel desktop stand or possibly a wall mount. The speakers! Why do they even bother putting speakers in monitors? It would be much better to just have a 3.5 jack out instead.

Overall Review: I still have my fingers crossed after about 1 week of use. The negative reviews and the inability to contact the manufacture almost scared me away but I bought the additional 4 year Square Trade warranty so we'll see how it goes.

Good cables

Pros: Just good cables.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Sometimes "latching" cables are just a pain in the nether regions so these are badly needed.

Fast, quiet, and reasonably priced!

Pros: I had none of the problems others have mentioned. The drive is quiet, fast, and you just can't beat the price.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I've used dozens of the ASUS 24B1ST drives so I tried this when it was on sale. This seems just as good so far.

Works great
