ADATA Premier SP600 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Good to use it as main OS host **Updated January 14, 2016 ***Unreliable*** 01/15/2016

This review is from: ADATA Premier SP600 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ASP600S3-128GM-C

Pros: * Price
* It worked just fine out of the box
* Makes a difference in OS loading times even in a SATA II system

Cons: **** Unreliable. After 8 months of very light use (I use the drive as main OS disk in a HTPC, I use the PC just once or twice a week) it crashed and i wasn't able to recover the drive, I just submitted a RMA request to AData since it has 3 years of warranty. Unfortunately it will be very hard to rely in the brand again. It's a pain restoring the data to a new disk and the downtime waiting for the replacement. Not good.

* I had some issues with the cloning process
* Weird 9mm adapter, has sticky tape to glue it to the SS disk

Other Thoughts: I had some issues cloning my old drive to the new SSD with the Acronis Full Version Software, for unknown reason during the restarting the system didn't return to the Acronis app but to the main OS and the cloning stalled. I ended doing a backup and restarting the system with the recovery (rescue) disk and then retrieving the backup to the new SSD. It took more time but worked pretty well. The SSD is being used as the OS disk in an AMD htpc, despite my system being Sata II the loading/starting time is noticeable faster than my previous normal 3.5" 7200 RPM hard drive. Let's see how it behaves in the long run... 4 eggs because the cloning process issue could be a big issue for someone not very experienced.

ZOTAC GeForce GT 720 DirectX 12 ZT-71202-20L 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x 8 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Installed in an 8 year old HP pavilion (Core Duo to Xeon converted with Windows 8.1) desktop become silent, processor load was reduced. It's a very good option for mobos with PCI Express 2.0. Absolutely ZERO issues with installation, OS found it right away.

Cons: It takes 2 ports, despite the compact design of the card; the port that is close to the PCI Express 2.0(16) is now unusable because the passive cooler is blocking it , consider this if you are planning to add expansion cards to your system.

Other Thoughts: It's 4.5 eggs, the fan-less design ends with the passive cooler being large but is understandable and not enough to discount a full egg of the qualification.

Sewell Xpand 4-port USB 3 PCI Express Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Just better than expected and cheap... 05/24/2014

This review is from: Sewell Xpand 4-port USB 3 PCI Express Card

Pros: Cheap, i did put it in my old HP system running Win 8.1, no drivers needed it's working I hope that lasts for a while...

Cons: NO low profile adapter.

Other Thoughts: Be advise that you will need a SATA power connector NOT the normal 4 pin for IDE devices, so you probably want to be sure that you system has one available or buy one.
Mine came without disk but drivers are available in their site, however Win 8.1 just found it and installed the OS stocked drivers.
