SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW

5 out of 5 eggs Great product, but it may require advanced knowledge to install. 11/23/2016

This review is from: SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V5P512BW

Pros: Speed.

Cons: -Price.
-Couldn't get Ubuntu to install to it.
-Finding a suitable PCI to M2 adapter was a chore. I got that from another site though. When I was looking on here, they were pricey.

Other Thoughts: -Couldn't boot to this device in a HP EliteDesk 705 mini, despite explicitly stating their board supports it.

-For the folks having trouble installing Windows OS to it, I downloaded an EXE someone previously mentioned in these reviews, and unpacked the EXE with 7zip. I grabbed the INF I needed and loaded that driver during Win7 Pro x64 install. After Win7 was installed, I was able to upgrade to 10.

-I'd gladly pay extra when buying a mobo if this type of drive were embedded on the board. No PCI adapter, no SATA cable running to another device. Can't wait until M2 is a standard feature. I envision stacked M2 slots where you'd populate them like laptop RAM, snap in. Just imagine the speed populating all the M2 slots on a board and setting up a hard/soft ware RAID on them.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: cost per GB is reasonable
reliability of SSD
great speeds

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: After i got my new build together and had two of these in RAID stripe mode, i bumped one off a 3.5' high table. It hit the floor on its corner and i panicked. Not only would this have destroyed the drive, but also the RAID array. I put the drive back, powered on my new machine and everything was fine. A fall from that high would have broken a spinning drive, but this drive is tough. After that fall, It's already paid for itself.

Turtle Beach Ear Force XP400 Wireless Dolby Surround Sound + Wireless Chat Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great sound quality, good range, wide array of compatible devices, bluetooth interfacing for other devices.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: When you have earbuds or other headphones and the sound is loud, other people can here it. These headphones are completely isolated. i took them off and could barely hear the sound a foot away. excellent surround emulation. I had to pause FRINGE because i thought i was hearing a hard drive clicking on my computer. turns out it was background sound in their lab on TV. it's amazing how clear the sound is.
