Not solder9/13/2016 7:05:27 AM

Pros: 2lb worth of wire and size is consistent

Cons: This is welding wire for migs. I had my soldering iron up to 900F and just browned the wire never touched the melting point.

Overall Review: Seems like a good product for what it is. When the package arrived the spool that the wire is on was broken. cannot vouch for wicking of the wire since i don't have a mig welder handy.

Pros: Super easy install. Acronis True Image is packaged with drive for easy migration. Now for the fun part, This drive is absolutely amazing. Crystal Disk Mark scored this right at the advertised speeds (just a hare under by 11mbs on the read which could be anything with a 2gb test and the write was right around the 674mbs range. Well over advertising) Have to say for the price this drive is an excellent expansion to any system. Crystal Disk mark score ----------------------------------------------------------------------- CrystalDiskMark 5.1.2 x64 (C) 2007-2016 hiyohiyo Crystal Dew World : ----------------------------------------------------------------------- * MB/s = 1,000,000 bytes/s [SATA/600 = 600,000,000 bytes/s] * KB = 1000 bytes, KiB = 1024 bytes Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1389.501 MB/s Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 674.541 MB/s Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 170.145 MB/s [ 41539.3 IOPS] Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 172.600 MB/s [ 42138.7 IOPS] Sequential Read (T= 1) : 1144.192 MB/s Sequential Write (T= 1) : 672.574 MB/s Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 26.707 MB/s [ 6520.3 IOPS] Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 56.975 MB/s [ 13909.9 IOPS] Test : 2048 MiB [C: 21.0% (45.2/215.4 GiB)] (x5) [Interval=5 sec] Date : 2016/04/15 13:27:15 OS : Windows 7 Professional SP1 [6.1 Build 7601] (x64)

Cons: Cant find any yet other than my computer illiterate coworkers aren't oo'ing and aww'ing because of how awesome this thing is

Overall Review: Was a little nervous about buying the drive, but now that it has been in and running for a couple of days I have no regrets what so ever.

I take it back10/24/2013 10:02:16 AM

Pros: Was nice when it worked

Cons: This was just a heart breaker and absolute frustration. I left this PSU on over night to test it (not attached to my MOBO (that's another story)). Went in this morning and my friend told me that I might want to sit down. He told me that he was working and he herd a POP come from my tower and as he looked over the fans on my case slowed to a stop. So now I am returning it, and guess what?! It's going to cost be $20 dollars to send it to California! This PSU has LESS THAN 5 HOURS ON IT! I'm essentially stuck with a PSU I'm going to be scared of for as long as I have it. Should have known better. DO NOT BUY!

Overall Review: I wanted to be physically ill for about 5 hours this morning. Just the thought of this thing blowing in my PC (shudder) when its done dose not attract me at ALL. trading out asap for a well known psu.

Pros: Looks like a good board when it works I'm writing this in the middle of the RMA process as of now.

Cons: Oh the frustration of finding out your boards dead. There is no status light so forget that. No post message no nothing. The fans would spin and shut right back off. NOTHING to say that the board is DOA. This is the highest rated board for the 990FX chip set, and that's the bad part about it. I've been planning this build for a month and I go to turn on the system, nothing. You could have heard a pin drop in my room. I changed out the RAM, and CPU with ones that I KNOW work and it still would not spin up so I am left to the conclusion that the board is dead.

Overall Review: Hopefully the replacement works, if not if well I don't know they are all a game of roulette as to whether or not they work.
