Most Favorable Review

Great working drive

Pros: Affordable, quiet, and trouble free drive.

Cons: The promised Nero software is rubbish. It's the trial version or limited version of Nero and doesn't do much. I'd rather they included an older Nero full version or don't promise me Nero at all. They lost an egg for the poor Nero version.

Overall Review: Several people have complained about noise with this drive. Maybe I got lucky, but this drive is by far the most quiet drive I've ever used. It works great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Disappointed

Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1
Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1

Pros: Super Fast, Quiet, Small, Low Power Consumption and No Heat. WEI 7.3 on SATA 3.0

Cons: Super Buggy! Poor Crucial customer support. Not compatible with Marvel Controllers and other drivers/controllers.

Overall Review: I spent two weeks of serious headache trying to get this thing to load W7-64 HP. Several emails/calls/forum posts to Crucial support did not help me. I ended up connecting to SATA 3.0 not using AHCI. I can't believe more people here haven't had these problems. If you are serious about purchasing this SSD, I'd highly recommend reading through the Crucial Forums first to see what kind of conflicts and problems people are having. RMA'd once, would have preferred a refund. I guess there is a reason that a refund isn't available.

Great Power Supply for the Money

Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Affordable. Good connectors and length of wires. This thing is build very solid. Quiet fan and seems to handle pet hair and dust well in comparison to some of the other PSUs I've ran in a 24/7/365 machine.

Cons: A lot of wire. That's probably more of a Pro than a Con but I used this on an ITX build and it's like a jungle gym in there even with a lot of cable management.

Overall Review: I'm about 3 months in on this power supply and everything is running smoothly. I was impressed with how sturdy this thing felt when I got it. I had one 12v connector come apart(easily repairable), but otherwise like the feel of the connectors and wires. Power consumption seems right where it should be. I highly recommend this PSU.

Pros: Very good printing quality. Easy network setup. Nice browser status check.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I've really been liking this printer. It does what I expect and it does it well. It is somewhat noisy and a little slow, but that isn't an issue for me. I don't print photos, mostly documents. The wireless network is easy to set up and HP gave it a webpage so you can quickly see the printer status, properties and make changes as needed. I recommend this printer.
