SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 1TB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E1T0B/AM

Pros: We have quite a few of these in our setup. We use them mostly with 3ware raid cards. I don't think I have seen one kicked out of array yet. That's in the last six to seven months of usage.

Cons: none

Most Critical Review

Unsatisfactory RMA policy

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10Q-32GZM
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C10Q-32GZM

Pros: Fast, runs at default speed 1866 on motherboards that support it. Has been generally stable and without issues on most of the systems.

Cons: Bad experience with RMA on one these kits. This kit was causing our motherboard to constantly reboot even before the POST. We were able to reproduce the behaviour on multiple motherboards. A replacement RAM kit would boot these motherboards just fine, so we were sure problem was with the particular kit. When we sent the it for RMA, it was refused because we did not have the bar code from the packaging. I would think the serial number from the DIMMs should have enough information for corsair to support this product but seems like they would use any excuse to refuse the RMA if possible. Very disappointing. Going forward we would look for RAM from a manufacturer who would stand behind their product.

Overall Review: We have built around 20 machines with these kits with two of them resulting in the above mentioned failure. Too bad we cannot get these replaced because we did not save the original packaging (clamshell).

Perfect for 2-u servers

Pros: Low profile and compact design. I have now almost 40-50 of these in production environment. Not one has failed yet.

Cons: Can't think of any.

Overall Review: I can't comment on noise as all my machines are in data center. It's too loud for me to notice anything :)

Compact but comfortable

Pros: Compact, sturdy, looks good. Has been working fine for last month or so.

Cons: And indicator for Function lock would have been handy in certain situations.

Overall Review: When I received the package, I thought they forgot to include the USB transceiver. After a bit of search I found it hidden in the battery compartment for mouse.

Non standard mounting holes

ICY DOCK 2.5" SSD / SATA Hard Drive to Desktop 3.5" SATA Drive Bay Converter Bracket Mounting Kit - EZConvert MB882SP-1S-3B
ICY DOCK 2.5" SSD / SATA Hard Drive to Desktop 3.5" SATA Drive Bay Converter Bracket Mounting Kit - EZConvert MB882SP-1S-3B

Pros: The open design gives me clear view of the drive inside. No more doubts if the drive is fully inserted or not.

Cons: There is a big one, at least for me. The mounting holes for the enclosure are not standard 6-32. This makes this enclosure unusable for me. I hope they fix this problem in next version because I really like this design. Until then I have to revert to the older version :(
