5 out of 5 eggs Crucial BX100 CT250BX100SSD1 08/07/2015

This review is from: Crucial BX100 2.5" 250GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT250BX100SSD1

Pros: Have standardised on Crucial SSD's and have no drama. Used to use Kingston but found they were not reliable.

Have not had any failures with Crucial SSD's and they are very economical.

Do not use the built in software, use clonezilla so we can image over network.

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: none

Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Economical, reasonable performance and once break-in period passed very reliable.
Hard to beat for the price.

Cons: I have dozens of hard drives, and I usually get about 1 out of 20 drives that fail within the first month.
But for the price I cannot complain

Other Thoughts: For the amount of drives I buy it is still cheaper to have a couple of extra drives around, than to buy more expensive drives.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I use a lot of threads with the applications I use. I find the thread switching to be much faster than the Intel CPU's.
The ability to switch threads faster swaps any speed advantage that the Intel CPU's have.
I do not play any games on this computer.
Far superior performance for running virtual machines as well.

Cons: Raw single threaded performance not as good as Intel

Other Thoughts: I do not really play any games, but for compiling, virtual machines, video editing, I really prefer the AMD processors along with AMD chipsets. I find the long term reliability of AMD based motherboards to be superior as well.
