Pros: Easy install. I have decided Samsung is worth the extra money alone due tot he great software that allows boot drive migration and continual monitoring. And it's way super-fast too! I trust Samsung to my terabytes of data.
Cons: None really. I mean sure, it's among the priciest 2.5" SSD's. But this generation is lower in price than the last. And really, it now seems comparable in price to many of what were considered 'budget' SSD's.
Overall Review: yep, get it. You'll not be sorry. It's fast and reliable. And ten years from now, you'll likely still be using and relying on it.
Super-easy to install. No drivers to add, worked from the very first plug in it.
Pros: Plugged right in. The SATA cables were to short to reach all my drives so I added my own. I had to mod my VIOS to have 16 lanes to the device. But that's an issue about bandwidth, not the unit.
Cons: None..... it does its work and does it well.
Overall Review: ayah, I would.
Great product, fast and safe delivery.
Pros: New item, still in a sealed box. Bow well-packed into another box for shipping with cushioning inside to reduce movement. RYZEN 5950x CPU. 16 cores that run nice and cool. Super easy to tweak and make it faster. It runs cooler than my 3900x did on the same motherboard. It's about 40% faster. Scored 22,011 on CinebenchR23 stock, ten minutes after installation.
Cons: Make sure your AM4 motherboard can take the 5,000 series. I'd go with B550 or X570 series. You may have to update the BIOS to get it to POST.
Overall Review: Yes, yes, yes!
THIS WILL BE A LEGENDARY COMPUTER CASE!
Pros: Loads of airflow.. huge and astounding amount of air pushed out even without an exhaust fan! Lots of room for a tall cooler, my Dark Rock Pro4 fits with plenty to spare. Lots of room for a big GPU. VERY high build quality. Everything fits snug but not locked hopelessly. Easy tugs open the panels. I got the RGB model, I like it. It's a rendering workstation machine, but I still like it to look like art. Especially since that's what it processes. The PSU at the top is interesting. And the diversion of airflow to the MoBO makes for a velocity by the VRM's that I am sur helps wick heat away.
Cons: Another few mm on the cable management side might be ok. But I don't even keep storage in it! It runs on two NVME in the board and sends all renderings to the server. So I just need lots and lots of carefree filtered airflow to keep the machine cool as it runs 24/7. The components I transferred from another case dropped the MoBo temps down by ten or 15C. And the CPU is staying VERYT stable and has not moved into the 80C territory except rarely on a super intensive project (s) on hot days. Be aware that reaching the GPU from the top might be tough depending on your cable length. I routed mine under the CPU cables to get another few mm's.... then straight down, and lifted and pulled, more than a person ought to so I could get them under the GPU. I'd suggest using the pretty adapter cables to get more length. or just run them from above the GPU.
Overall Review: If you're not looking for huge amounts of storage, this is a good case. And it has enough storage for a regular person. 4 SSD's and two hard drives out to be more than enough for most folks. How many boards have more than 6 SATA ports anyhow? Cable management is easy enough, store all you can at the top of the case behind the PSU. This is an extraordinary case and will be the standard by which we judge airflow for a few years.
