Kingston SSDNow UV400 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Cheap way to increase performance on an aging machine
- Not a weird off-brand that I've never heard of

Cons: - Only 120GB.

Other Thoughts: This was a great deal. I used it along with a memory upgrade to breathe new life into an aging desktop with an AMD Athlon X2 3-core CPU. Windows 10 boots in seconds instead of minutes. Overall system performance is so much better than before, as to be expected when coming from a spinning disk. It gives me slightly more peace of mind when buying a brand like Kingston since (I assume) they are a more established storage manufacturer with an equally established customer support service, but I've had zero problems with this drive over the few months it's been in use.

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model MBB4U240FFFF16GX2
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Low price for 32GB of DDR4 goodness
- Looks really sleek on my black and white MSI motherboard and with my black and white NZXT power supply
- Works!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Upgraded the motherboard in one of my home server lab ESXi hosts for the sole purpose of having the ability to use more RAM. It's crazy that a mini-ITX board with 2 memory slots can support 32GB of memory - wow! These modules have the added benefit of looking really cool in my case. I'm very satisfied given the price, so far they have been working perfectly.

Toshiba OCZ TR150 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Noticeable speed increase (subjectively, see below) from the OCZ Vertex 3 it replaced
- Great price per GB, at least at the time when I purchased it
- Going on 6 months with no issues

Cons: - None!

Other Thoughts: I had a 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 in my primary desktop for years, but over time, I was running out of space and running out of programs I was willing to uninstall. I had heard mixed reviews about OCZ in the past, but since they are now Toshiba drives, I was a little less hesitant (although, I never had a single issue with my Vertex 3, which is now living out the rest of it's life in an Acer netbook). After installing this Trion, I noticed my boot time was almost halved, however, I did a clean install of Windows and re-installed my applications, so it could have just been the fresh start that made my whole system snappier.
