Intel 520 Series Cherryville 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast boot times, quick response opening programs while it works.

Cons: Bought this drive as part of a system from a "boutique" builder. In a little over a year, it has been replaced twice! Eventually the drive dissapears from BIOS and the system. At first reboots helped reidentify drive, but after a few weeks or months of this, it just completely dissapears forever. Better have this thing backed up!

Other Thoughts: Why can't all of theses manufacturers build drives that work? All of them have terrible failure rates, but 200% is just absurd.

ViewSonic X Series VX2739WM 27
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Big screen, bright, easily adjusted with NVidia Control Panel

Cons: Resolution, colors

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these, 1 died in a month and I exchanged. Running two of these is great! Plenty of space to run 4 docs at a time. Colors are washed out, but some of that can be adjusted out using 3rd party software like your own video card software. Too bright from store had to lower brightness, increase contrast for inside use. If you were in full sun I guess the standard setting would work! Better resolution would be nice but for $XXX you get what you pay for. Not the sharpest text, but again, you get what you pay for. Good for video viewing.

OCZ Agility 2 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None

Cons: Lots of DOAs and unreliable drives?

Other Thoughts: I am shopping for an SSD and thought maybe OCZ might like to know that because of the bad reviews here and elswhere, I will not consider buying their SSD. Get it right OCZ!
