Pros: It looks good, is slim and attractive.
Cons: This was a 2nd choice to the 3060 version we originally preordered. The one we recieved has a faulty screen or graphics card, it has graphical glitches and screen cutouts, and runs a 4 year old game (The Crew) poorly at low settings. (Even after driver reinstallation and removal of all excess software)
Overall Review: After waiting since February 2nd, this is a huge let down. To get a faulty unit after so long then need a replacement is sad. If the replacement is up to par I will reevaluate.
Pros: Fastish for the price, RGB is vibrant.
Cons: Slower than advertised random read max is around 3000, write is around 2k. Testing done on a z390 Aorus Master with a 9900k.
RGB is flaky and doesn't change colors properly.
Overall Review: It is ok for the price I got it, but I wouldn't buy direct from ADATA again, it took forever to get here and I had to pick it up from the post office. There are similar drive out there at the advertised speed for similar pricing. If you don't care about the RGB get one of those instead.
Pros: Handle, decent airflow, feels like quality ccomponents.
Cons: Some sharp edges, especially in the top compartment, bottom fan placement is impossible with a dual slot graphics card, mind you im using lian lis own brand fans. Cable management tie downs are few. Really disappointed about the fan issue. The gigabyte axial design 5700XT I used isnt even particularly thick.
Pros: Great card, while it functioned, beefy heatsink.
Cons: Got the memory artifact skull and crossbones like many others on here. I read many mainstream reviews that generally said the problem was unlikely with the 2070, unfortunately this card is afflicted. I've owned it for about 3 months and suddenly started happening.
Overall Review: Really hoping the replacement is artifact free, and quick to arrive as this is my only card currently availible. The rma form said wait 48 hours for a reply which is somewhat aggravating. 2 eggs because of the problem, if the rma goes well and I dont encounter the problem again I will adjust the score accordingly.
Pros: -Good contrast and response, decent color reproduction.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: For those who are wondering, yes this is gsync compatible. Got it hooked up to my 2070 and it works great, no stuttering whatsoever.
Pros: 3 fan headers, USB C, M.2 support.
Cons: Initially booted out of the box with a 2200g at stock settings, but was running very unstable. Thought it may have been my ram I yanked out of another box because someone stole the ones I ordered off my porch... but 2 kits later still hard crashing sporadically after re-seating and socketing everything. Last hope was to update the bios that just got dropped today, and now it locks up in a green screen with no text at launch. The new bios is conflicting with the current ryzen apu driver.
Overall Review: I'll be swapping this for a 450 board in hopes that these problems don't continue. The board seems well built, it just doesnt seem a good fit for the new apus. Also Asrock sent me some generic email telling me to contact my vendor for support, which was not helpful. This PC was supposed to be a Christmas present for my fiance, doesn't look like it will be ready at this point till next year.
Pros: -10k rpm drive
-Price is right with the promotional code
-This thing in raid0 is ridiculous, you can put these in tandem and get close to SSD speeds with more GB/$ if drive failure is not a complete scare to you.
Cons: -Price? It was worth it though, I am very happy with the results.
Overall Review: I am not a western digital fan, most of the caviar blues I have owned have failed within a year or two; I hope the trend does not continue because I am in love with these drives.
Pros: -Low price / GB at time of purchase.
Cons: -Both drives of this model I have owned have died within a year and a half of ownership.
-High level of defragmentation for a WD drive.
-VERY noisy little hard drive.
Overall Review: For the price / GB this drive is not worth replacing, I will spend the extra 15$ and buy the black devices from not on. I was really disappointed when the second of the two zonked out on me.
