This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 1TB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE1T0BW
Pros: Large storage capacity?
Cons: The first drive came and died after a very short period of time. I had to pay to ship the product back to newegg and have it replaced. The new drive seemed to be working, but I did notice something was off. Whenever I tried writing anything larger (2+ GB) it would write EXTREMELY SLOW (we're talking ~50 kb/s). Then after trying for too long it would BSOD on me.
I recommend staying away from this product. I do not even want to RMA this again because it is not worth the wasted money spent on shipping. I'll likely steer clear of Samsung in the future barring some miracle.
Pros: The back lighting is cool, Macro keys could come in handy, and as my first mechanical keyboard it wasn't too hard of a transition.
Cons: Does not come with an adapter to give it more power, which is needed for use of the USB ports.
Space bar is squeaky and sort of gets annoying when typing.
Randomly dies. This is the worst part. Otherwise I would have gladly given it 4 eggs. It will, every so often, stop working. The 'lock' lights will light up (num, caps, scroll) but all LED background for the keys go off and the keyboard is unresponsive. Unplugging and replugging does nothing, nor does changing the USB port. None of my other USB devices (webcam/mouse) have ever had this problem, so I can pretty much rule the motherboard out. The only solution I have found is rebooting the whole computer.
Other Thoughts: I would imagine the squeaky space bar is not a common problem as nobody else has complained of it that I can see. So more of less if it came with an adapter to fully power the USB ports and it didn't randomly die it would receive 5 EggsREAD FULL REVIEW
