StarTech USB3SSATAIDE USB 3.0 to SATA or IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great compatibility
USB 3.0 speed

Cons: Cable from brick to HDD way too short. If you keep the HDD on a table and connect it, the brick will hang in the air pulling the HDD which can eventually fall on the floor and get damaged

Other Thoughts: Lost one star because cable length

Corsair Performance 3 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Amazingly fast! Here are loading time samples:
Win7 Ultimate 64-bit 10 sec
Firefox load time <1 sec, almost instant!
Microsoft Word 2010 1 sec
Adobe Photoshop CS5 3 sec
Sony Vegas 10 5 sec

Cons: None so far or wait... may be the size :)

Other Thoughts: You can't go wrong with this drive.
This is my first time interacting in details with a SSD drive and I can say it trow me in a different world of personal computing. I've always trusted Corsair products for their quality and reliability and so did this time. I can't be happier, hope it will last.
Make sure you setup your windows settings manually for SSD drive (search Google), it's very important for the best speed and drive's life span

AMD Phenom 9950 Agena Quad-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W HD995ZXAGHBOX Black Edition Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: AMD, Blazing fast, high performance, real quad core, unlocked multiplier

Cons: Price, 43C idle on stock speed with stock cooler and Arctic Silver 5

Other Thoughts: If you are going to use the stock cooler, wipe the stock thermal compound and use Arctic Silver 5 for lower idle/load temps. If you plan to overclock, you better get Zalman cooler
