Plextor M3 Series 128GB SSD Unboxing and Review

Posted

Pros: Fast, reliable, not SandForce

So there you go. I just got this in the mail today. This is a fast drive, similar to the Corsair Performance Pro, Crucial M4, and the Samsung 830. It should be reliable in the long run. I am currently using it as a storage drive for my photos and hopefully it will speed up some of my editing time.

Good Fan Controller

Posted

Pros: Cheap and reliable

Cons: LED lights are vey bright

Got this b/c I was too cheap to get a more expensive fan controller. I was very surprised at how well it works, I can even turn the fans off completely. The lights change from RED to BLUE depending on the adjustment of power added to the fan. Now I can adjust my fans to the sound level I want and this purchase was well worth it.

Reliable, low budget PSU

Posted

Pros: 520 watts, cheap

Cons: No Power cable

Great 80 plus certified psu. Runs cool and quiet. The cable are long. 40 amps on the 12v rail is nice. Great length for bottom mounted supplies. Plenty of power connectors for sata and molex devices. I got this running in my dad's build/Server. I have it powering a i3 2100 and 6 HDDs 24/7 and it give no issue, it has worked flawlessly.

Loud

Posted

Pros: Move a lot of air, blue

Cons: Loud!

These fans are loud especially at full speed, I can't concentrate when they are maxed. They are definitely not 19dBA as marketed that's for sure. Other than that they cool great and move a good amount of air. I have 5 in my case and am considering replacing them for something quieter.

Awesome wireless mouse

Posted

Pros: Wireless, responsive

Cons: None

I have used this mouse over the past year and it has worked great for me. I can easily lay down on my bed and control my PC from a few feet away. It is the first wireless mouse that has lasted me over 6 months too. I really like the ability to have the USB adapter hidden away in the mouse too. Recommended

Great TV/Monitor

Posted

Pros: TV Tuner, picture, inputs

Cons: None

Like I said this has been a great TV/Monitor. I constantly use it for photo editing and watching movies and it has never given me an issue so far. I love the tons of inputs on the back and the picture quality is great! The remote is easy to use and the navigation menus are easy to follow. If you are in look of a TV/ monitor I would definitely recommend this!

Good home user keyboard

Posted

Pros: Cheap, nice keys

Cons: None

Ok, so this is a pretty decent keyboard for $10. I haven't used anything else this cheap that performs as well. the keys are responsive and click nicely. I would definitely buy again.

Good secondary monitor

Posted

Pros: Cheap, good picture

Cons: Hard time setting colors and brightness

I have two of these, one for me and one for my father. They have been great as secondary monitors to watch movies on and view the web. They look sleek and are nice and thin. One thing though is setting up the colors and brightness properly, it is a pain tot do so. I have it close on mine, but my other monitors do much better in color representation for photoediting.
