Pros: Fast like a SSD should be.
Cons: Failed like a HDD never would. After just five months of use in my HTPC the computer freezes. On restart I'm told that there are no bootable devices. In the BIOS the drive doesn't even show up. I'm going to call OCZ but even if they replace my drive they can't give me back all of the time I've put into installing and setting up my computer.
Other Thoughts: I heard about all of the negative reviews of OCZ's SSDs, but I chose to ignore them. I guess they're cheaper than their competitors for a reason.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this card as an upgrade in my HTPC. I found that once I had the machine setup in my living room that I wanted to play more demanding games in full HD and my GTS 450 just wasn't cutting it. The 560 Ti 448 core performs even better than I had imagined. I max out the settings in every game and it does fantastically. In my experience this special edition card acts more like a 570 than a 560 Ti, much like TomsHardware promised.
The alternative to this card would have been a 6950 2GB, which usually don't come any shorter than 10"-10.5". At 9" this card provides great gaming power in a tight space.
Cons: The single cooling fan may potentially limit overclocking potential, although that's pure speculation because I haven't tried overclocking yet. (But with the performance this card delivers at stock speeds I suspect it will be some time before I feel the need to overclock)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High capacity and excellent value. OEM package included screws.
Cons: It's louder than my 1.5TB WD Green drive, and slower to respond when I go to access a video (once it's going it seems to perform fine).READ FULL REVIEW
