Most Favorable Review

Worked out of the box

ADATA Ultimate SU800 512GB 3D NAND 2.5 Inch SATA-III Internal Solid State Drive (ASU800SS-512GT-C)
ADATA Ultimate SU800 512GB 3D NAND 2.5 Inch SATA-III Internal Solid State Drive (ASU800SS-512GT-C)

Pros: Quick boot up for Win10, cloning software included to ensure easy migration from HDD.

Cons: Have to register the SSD before downloading the software for migration, does not mount in standard HDD drive bay of desktop, just sort of sits there, assume that since no working parts, should be ok, I guess. The "instructions" on cloning and installation were not obvious to me. Thanks to internet searches, I completed this in a couple of hours.

Overall Review: So far so good, starts fast. Do not use an external drive adapter via USB to clone your HDD, will not work. Have to put the drive in line to clone. Helps to understand how to partition a drive in Windows, though, I am not sure it matters.

SONY STRDH540 5.2-Channel 4K AV Receiver

Pros: Works, has great sound, very versatile.

Cons: Manual not included. No warranty, as is.

Overall Review: Recently the unit 12/2015 started failing. First, the radio would not play sound through the speakers, then after a week or so, the cable would not play through the speakers, now I have to find a repair shop to see if it is repairable. Would not do this again.
