Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Extremely fast - noticed no issues. 01/15/2014

This review is from: Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SV300S37A/120G

Pros: I can't seem to reproduce the read/write speed issues others are mentioning. Windows is up and running in about 8 seconds - realistically, too, not from a fresh install. Very snappy performance.

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: Good luck opening the packaging.

Used on a SATA III motherboard. Ensure that the SATA mode in the BIOS isn't set to IDE.

COUGAR Spike Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower Gaming Case with USB 3.0 and 12CM Cougar Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks fantastic.
USB 3.0 support on front.
Feels firm and high quality.
Included fan is silent and pushes a lot of air.
Clean black interior.

Cons: Nit-picky things. Doesn't really matter when everything is assembled.

1. It's difficult to distinguish the reset button from the power button until you LEARN it's on the right side of the front bezel. You'll probably have a few accidental hard-resets.

2. Tool-less drive mounts were a little irritating. You'll feel like you're going to break them, but you (probably) won't.

3. Install hard drives before installing a heatsink, even stock ones. It will be difficult if not impossible to slide them into place with a heatsink on the CPU.

Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell Dual-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 1150 54W BX80646G3220 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very fast for a dual-core. Great for budget gaming builds (with a dedicated graphics card) and general desktop applications.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Stock heatsink fan is a little weird. It tries to spin up twice when the PC is turned on, and on the third try it spins up full blast for a few seconds before slowly dying down to normal RPMs.
