Pros: Fast, very fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just felt I should update that I retested drive speeds as I hadn't updated my drivers when I last tested. Now my drive is testing at 550MBps sequential read and 520MBps sequential write. I've tested both the drives I bought and they are within the same results. Also tested several times. So ignore my 490 write I mentioned earlier.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

Pros: Inexpensive, quick timings, heatspreaders, GSkill

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Been using GSKill memory for over 12 years, probably much longer, and I've only ever had to return one set way back. Using Gigabyte Z97-HD3P and the timings are automatically detected once you enable the XMP profile in the BIOS. Memtest came out clear. Guess there's a reason I always just buy GSKill and don't really bother looking around. Using for my DAW (music machine), so while I don't do high end gaming the stuff I do does indeed use a LOT of memory (large sample banks, etc).

5 out of 5 eggs Would never go back to mechanical drives 06/17/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: Noiseless, small and light, super fast, not too expensive, comes with cloning and config/testing software

Cons: Can't really think of any

Other Thoughts: First time moving to SSD drives and bought two of these for use in my DAW (music computer). My Windows is highly tweaked but I timed boot into Windows with a stop watch from the second I see the BIOS screen and my boot up time is 8.46 seconds! And that's to in Windows and working - ie. no spinning "wait" cursor. Faaaast! Used the Samsung software only to test speeds, I have no special speed tweaks to the drive whatsoever. My sequential read was 549MBps and sequential write was 490MBps. I'm very happy with these drives. Hopefully that last long too.
