    Since looking into this more and more since Mihael's opening post, I am surprised to find so many reports of these SSDs running so hot. At the same time, I am surprised to find so few reports from users complaining about poor and degraded SSD...

    Hmmm, those are surprising results. I wonder how the 960 would compare to that 950 - though they have the same published specs. I do note they say in reference to the throttling, "we wouldn't expect anyone to actually see this in the real...

    Powerline adapters have been a boon or bust - depending on who you talk too. If the house is older and the wiring is not up to code, performance may suffer. If the two ends are on different circuits, it may not work at all. But if your...
