Another dead drive

ADATA Premier Pro SP900 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP900S3-256GM-C

Pros: Fast and the price was right.

Cons: Died after nine months.

Overall Review: When mine died, I checked the reviews and discovered that I am not the only one in this situation. Mine lasted longer than others did, but nine months is a bit disappointing.

Claims to need a 450W power supply

Pros: Cheap, low profile.

Cons: Claims to require a 450W power supply.

Overall Review: I purchased this to upgrade one of my HP Slimlines. Before doing so, I looked for the minimum requirements to find out what sort of power supply was expected because I didn't want to blow out mine as it's a custom size. I never did find that spec here.... But given the number of reviews of that claimed that this card was merely adequate for gaming PLUS a couple of reviews that specifically mentioned that it was purchased for -- and successfully used in -- a Slimline, I figured it would be safe to try. It arrived today. The packaging says "450W minimum". My Slimline (actually, both of my Slimlines) have 160W power supplies. Given that two Slimline power supplies COMBINED lack the wattage supposedly needed to use this card, I think I'll pass on installing this. ;-)
