Overall Review: I have had this drive for less than a month and it has disappeared twice. Only way to fix it I can find is pull the drive out, start up the computer, shut it off, and reinstall the drive.
I have another Adata SSD that came with a graphics card I bought. It has been rock solid with zero issues so I decided to try this one. I guess next time I'm sticking to Crucial or Samsung.
EDIT* Also wanted to add that going through Adata or XPGs site for support. Apparently this model doesn't exist as you can't select it and you can't use the serial number on it because the field on the site only allows numbers. . . . .
Pros: Nice build quality and paint. Handle on top and cable lock if you go to LANs. Plenty of places to put fans. Plenty of possibilities for cable management. Looks very sexy with an ASUS Crosshair V in it.
Cons: Only comes with one fan. I would rather it at least come with another and make the case $10 more expensive. The hardware box is just that. A cardboard box the fits in a 3.5" bay. I'm surprised they didn't include a black box for this. Also the lower mounting points for AMD CPU Heatsink bracket are blocked off. Although that may very depending on the MB but for the ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z they are blocked.
Overall Review: Overall very nice case if you are going to buy some extra fans. I'm changing to green fans so only replacing one fan was kind of a bonus for me. I give it 4 out of 5 for the 3 things I found wrong with it.
Pros: Does everything advertised and the shortcuts are nice in Windows 8, Specially the start screen, desktop, and charms gestures. They also allow you to customize the gestures a bit if you don't like the default ones.
Also if you scroll with a fast flick it works like free scroll on my G500 which is nice.
Cons: Take a bit to get used to and shortcuts can be a little touchy.
For instance, it only has one button to click and the touch surface senses which side it is on. For a primary click no problem but for a secondary click you have to raise your primary finger off. Not a huge deal but I'm used to resting both fingers on the mouse and it takes a bit to get used to.
The touch surface seems to work like a single touch laptop touchpad so if you rest both fingers on it, it will sense between them which can do some random things like bring up the Win8 charms depending on how you rest your fingers.
Overall Review: The switch application gesture doesn't work like alt+tab. It only switches between Win8 apps, the desktop itself is included in that. I didn't list this as a con cause its more of an issue with Win8 than the mouse.
I gave it a 4 out of 5 because I won't rate anything a 5 unless it's absolutely perfect and I didn't want to give it a 3 because the funky parts that I mentioned in the Cons are more the user getting used to it than issues with the mouse itself.
A mouse should be very intuitive and easy to use and with the quirks in Windows 8 I think Logitech did a pretty good job.
