Pros: The speed, durability, and overall usefulness of this drive is amazing, especially at this incredible price point.
Cons: Nothing thus far :)
Overall Review: This upgrade drive kit comes with the following: 1) HyperX 3K 120GB SSD 2) 2.5" USB Enclosure (to make it an external drive) 3) 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket (for inside a desktop PC) 4) SATA data cable 5) Cloning Software CD 6) Multi-bit screwdriver The first "reviewer" obviously left their feedback on the wrong item, and most likely purchased the standalone drive package actually. This one most definitely DOES come with a SATA cable. There's no reason at all to knock this one down an egg, especially for it not even being the correct item needing reviewed. The only other note, is that newegg has a "was" and "now" price set, which makes no sense since that was posted at the same time the drives were released for sale. Odd, but oh well, still great drives, so pick one up today if you can!!!
1 decent game out of 2 options isn't terribad...
Pros: The game options certainly could be worse...
Cons: But they could also be much better! I'm "ok" with using the Epic Games store for this code redemption (I chose BL3, of course), but being left with no choice in the matter (I really hoped for a Steam code, as I've every other BL on there, and wanted to keep it all organized. I digress...
Overall Review: Yeah, it's an ok deal, but the way they charge you for this and discount it from the hardware's price, it's a bit deceitful and shady, given they literally tell you NO DETAILS prior to purchase. Nothing about the Epic Games store, nothing about the jumping through hoops (like the AMD verification tool, btw... YEAH!) to even USE the code, nothing about how they process payment for it all, NADA. I mean, c'mon now... really? REALLY?!
Pros: Easy to download, easy to install, easy to use, and even filing was super easy and fast. Got everything all done in one sit-down, which usually isn't the case, and this year was more complicated for me, outside of this software.
Overall Review: I definitely do recommend this software, as I have for years now. Each new offering turns out to be better than the last. Keep up the great work, Intuit!
Pros: On 5V setting, yeah, it's pretty quiet...
Cons: on 12V, however, it's actually pretty loud.
Overall Review: Fairly affordable, especially when on sale, but it's annoying that Newegg limits one to 3x quantity per purchase, within a 48 hour time frame. I could see 2x, or 4x (even better) quantity, but 3? Anyway, they do push quite a lot of air, and pull a lot as well, even on 5V. They're at their best on 12V, though, just noticeably louder. I'm also using them in push-pull, on my radiator, in the top of my PC, so I'm sort of always exposed to the sound, so I digress... I'll definitely buy more, if I can, though, but I really wish they had bulk packs, like some of their competitors do still.
Nothing to scoff at!
Pros: It's fast, fairly low temps, powerful, affordable, and does more than everything I need it to do. This is why I still love AMD. :)
Overall Review: I definitely recommend this CPU to anyone looking to get one, it's great. I'm running it in an MSI X470 Gaming Plus mobo, with 32GB (2x16) G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4 3200, a Seasonic Focus GX-750 PSU, WD Black SN750 PCI-E NVME M.2 SSD, WD Black WD4005FZBX SATA 4TB HDD, MSI Radeom RX5700 OC 8GB Evoke GPU, and cooled by a Deepcool Captain 240X AIO liquid CPU cooler (fans upgraded to 4x Rosewill RFA-120-K, in push-pull), and thus far it's been a rock star. I'm running Win10 x64 Pro, with loads of different games and rendering apps, and everything loves it so far. :)
Small, yet powerful.
Pros: It's small, but it's very efficient, and the fans are nice and quiet, too. Installation was fairly easy, as well, thankfully. I actually had more issues with my case than the cooler I had to accommodate into it, lol.
Cons: It only comes with 2x fans (really nice ones, though, but only 2 of them, unfortunately), and really works much better with 4x in push-pull. The physical design definitely wasn't created with my old Pangu case in mind, but I'm used to modding cases, so it was a fun project to work on, to adapt the case to the radiator. I did no mods to the rad, fans, etc., just the case, but thankfully I was able to do it at least. It's a con, but a minor one, and not enough to knock an egg off for, imho.
Overall Review: I ended up swapping out the fans for a 4 pack of Rosewill RFA-120-K fans, that I have running at full 12V, using other means of "control", operating in push-pull, in the top of my Deepcool Pangu V2 case. They're louder than I'd like them to be, but my temps (on an AMD Ryzen 7 2700 CPU, no OC) are really nice, so no complaints there. The RGB is a cute touch, too, and the MSI software on my mobo works really well with it (and accommodates it well with 2 different header location options, btw). I leave it on red, static, and I think it fits pretty nicely, being the pump design looks like a power symbol as well. #snazzy
Great item, but description is lacking.
Honestly, this item I bought is awesome, but there was so little in the description that I felt I was taking a gamble. Even the title had me wondering. That being said, if they add more to the titles and descriptions, they might very well sell a lot more. Regardless, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. :)
