PNY Optima 2.5

1 out of 5 eggs Another update after RMA 01/14/2015

This review is from: PNY Optima 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD7SC480GOPT-RB

Pros: At this point, none, other than the fact that it was cheap.

Cons: after 6 month of use, from july-dec, it failed so I had it RMA. One came in mail looked brand new sealed. However... this one is DOA. If I were you, I would stir clear of this one and probably any PNY SSDs all together.
- First one failed within 6 month
- Second one DOA

Other Thoughts: avoid

SYBA GamesterGear P3210 Rumble Effect PC & PS3 Wired Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I got this headset to use with PS4 and PC.

- It has pretty decent sound quality for the price. I would say comparable to most $100-ish headsets.
- All the features do work. But it requires very specific setting and lots of work and wires.

Cons: Ok where do I start...

- When using with PC
It requires both USB and AUX to be connected for the "chat" and "game" volume dials to work properly. USB will show up as a separate audio output which you will have to set as "Default communication device" and the AUX will be your PC sound. This has to be configured again every time you plug it in so if you need to use it on two devices, it is probably too much work.

- When using with PS4
This again requires USB connection to the PS4 and AUX connection with the TV. My PS4 and TV are pretty far apart so this causes a major problem.

- Also for the TV->headset connection, RCA to 3.5mm AUX cable is supplied by the manufacturer. But my TV does not have RCA out, only AUX out. This means I have to plug AUX directly into the TV, and it mutes the TV. I dont want to walk to the TV and unplug the headset whenever I stop playing PS4. That is just stupid.

In conclusion, if you just want to use it as PC headset, plug it in and never take it out, yes, this is a decent headset.
With PS4, it is just not practical to make it work. However, if you can live with just one master volume dial, not game and chat separately, it should be fine.

2 out of 5 eggs Not up to advertised performance 07/14/2014

This review is from: PNY Optima 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD7SC480GOPT-RB

Pros: - It is a SSD after all. Will out perform any mechanical.
- I got it for very cheap. $145 after $20 rebate.

Cons: Crystaldiskmark result show far below advertised performance. I guess "up to" 60,000 IOPS means you have to be lucky? Anyway, following is the results that i had.

Seq Read/Write: 511.8/343.8 MB/s
512K Read/Write: 452.4/342.9 MB/s
4K Read/Write: 26.96/19.33 MB/s
4K QD32 Read/Write: 222.8/97.38 MB/s

97.38 MB/s on 4K QD32 indicate about 24000 IOPS

Other Thoughts: Testing environment
