Pros: Fast, affordable, reliable, cool blue shield.
Overall Review: I've use all the other brands, but Kingston is my new favorite! I've had Patriots that went bad and OCZ that were not stable. I've used these HyperX in 2 builds so far, and no problems at all!
Cons: Cheap plastic body was broken upon opening!
Overall Review: Terrible design and cheap plastic body. I thought DeLonghi was a good brand until now. Now I either ship it back and pay for shipping or just keep it. I am so disappointed since I didn't get what I paid for. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!
Sheep in Wolf's clothing
Pros: Cheaper than 3TB bare drive!
Cons: Waste of case. Price doesn't make any sense.
Overall Review: Confirmed as 7200 rpm 3TB bare drive I bought previously. Exact drive, but in a case. With a credit card, you can slide it under seams to release latches. Patience and you will be able to open in a few minutes. Case is plastic. Inserted into my HP micro-server and works great. No issues so far. Newegg has the fastest shipping, only 2-3 days and it's at my front door! Amazing! $30 cheaper than bare drive. Plus, since it is in a case, chances are, it's protected more than a bare drive...IMO.
Impressive transfer speed!
Pros: Small, stable footprint. 4 bays for HDD, Clean,Classy design. Price was $229 AR.
Cons: No SATA to 4-pin adapter for CDROM!!! No 3.0 USB.
Overall Review: Installed Win 8 Pro from CD, so it took a while to install CDRom from another PC. A few days later, copying big video files from Win 7 PC was way too slow (25 Mbps)! Usually copying to my other nas (less powerful) was 25 MBps. Google for days but no answer! Then decided to re-install network adapter driver....and now, I'm copy/paste from 80-100 MBps! Something must have messed up my network adapter. This is seriously fast now. So relieved and can't believe how fast it is now. I was only expecting 40-50 MBps transfer speeds. I learned a good lesson...re-install drivers!
Pros: Having almost bought a GTX 660 (non TI), I by chance read tomshardware about this new Tahiti 7870 LE. So glad I did! Newegg had the best price and I love how quick the shipping as always. This Tahiti runs BF3 on ULTRA and I can now aim due to higher FPS than my Piece of Shoot GTX 560. The 2 games included were icing! I am now competitive online (priceless)! No lag and high FPS is how you stay alive online! I new this, but could not justify a GTX 680 or even GTX 660 TI. The Tahiti has to be the best card for the money out there. Forget about the Titan! You want a product that is powerful and affordable, no more, no less. I am so thankful that I read about the Tahiti after a few years of struggling with the GTX 560!
Cons: None so far! I don't notice any loud sounds or care if the temp is a little higher than a GTX.
Overall Review: After a week of BF3 online, I am totally satisfied with the Power Color 7870 LE Myst. It actually runs quiet in my rig. I haven't been this happy since I added an SSD as a cache drive with my firstname.lastname@example.org ghz air cooled. This Tahiti will no doubt handle BF4 and anything for the next 3 years.
Almost a great mouse!
Pros: Solid aluminum chassis and overall build, accurate laser sensor
Cons: Body design is too BULKY. Not good for small hands or claw style grip-sniper button to far forward, 2 side buttons too small, wheel a bit loose, needs thicker rubber coating
Overall Review: Costing 1/2 of the Rat 7, I took a gamble...but all is not perfect! First, M60 is NOT for smaller hands or claw grips (such as myself)!!! Since I keep my fingers bent and press more with the tips of my fingers, I have less reach. Side buttons are too far forward. The rear body is too bulky compared to the Lachesis-also restricts my reach. Quality is superb,-except the wheel is NOT as "tight" and "solid" as other mice, i.e. Razer Lachesis. I struggled with the bulky size playing BF3 and not able to press the sniper button without changing my hand position. Why did Corsair make this mouse so "FAT" like a pot belly pig??? Final thoughts: Not the perfect FPS mouse for me. Due to packaging, and lack of demo mice, I could not test this mouse before buying. For now, I will stick with my Lachesis until the Rat 7 is much cheaper!
