SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Sequential Read: 540 MB/s, Sequential Write: 449 MB/s.
Random Read 93K IOPS, Random Write: 80K IOPS.

The Samsung Magician software included seemed goofy to install, but I wanted to be sure the firmware was the latest. It was. But it also told me that I plugged the drive into the old 3GB ports instead of the 6GB ones. Very nice.

Cons: Price, I suppose.

Other Thoughts: Proof that the Korean War was worthwhile. Samsung can do no wrong. I love this drive almost as much as my S3 phone.

BTW: My old Kingston died and I never even thought to check for warranty. They did send me a replacement to my almost 3-year old drive. Try to remember these babies have warranties.

Kingston SSDNow V Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It was nice in its day.

Cons: I hoped it would last longer. 3 years is rather short.

Other Thoughts: I installed only the OS (Win7 or Win8) and kept other files on a second disk so this disk didn't have lots of writing to do. I'm trying Samsung for its replacement.

ZALMAN ZM360B-APS 360W Continuous @ 45°C ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready  Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The internal fan has never had to run yet so it's been 100% quiet. All it has to power so far is my ASUS motherboard and cool i3 CPU. And occasionally, the Blu-ray player. Ceton tuner is on order.

Cons: Modular cables would have been nice since I'm not using 1/2 of them.
