    curious if anyone mods iPad cases around here.

    I recently got a "hand-me-down" an iPad2 and I remember seeing the Otterbox Defender for iPad1 @ Target for $24 Clearance price (Retails around . So most of outside features for iPad2 is not readily accessible for the OTDef iPad1 case understandably, but with a little drilling and filing this could be resolved. Plus according to most reviews on Amazon of the OTDef iPad2 case, doesn't have the same ruggedness and heavy plastic coverage as of the iPad1 case.

    It fits snuggly inside the iPad1 case. And it does gives you the feel that this case can take the beating.

    Just curious if anyone else have modded their iPad cases around here.

    earphone jack is not lined up
    need to create more holes for the speaker
    rubber handles for grip

    some accent around the logo
    going to drill a bigger hole, so far the bottom edge is blocking

    volume toggle cannot be reached because of the bevel, so making the hole bigger wider, a finger should fit --- gonna be trial and error here

    Thanks, it's an awesome keyboard. Keys are just the right weight, my only tiff with it is the crappy drum pads they're not the best for inputing rhythms. I used to have an awesome Alesis SR-16 unfortunately that went the way of the dodo.

    I ditched the optical drive in my 17" MBP, and dropped two 120GB Sandisk Ultra II's in.







    It does fairly well. Speeds might be higher on the compressible benchmarks if it was SATA III, but its an ancient Mid-2010 model.

    The sandisk is sata2 ssd so a sata3 mobo wont run it any faster and to be honest the Sandisk ultra ssd is rather slow and expesive there are better alternatives...

    The drives were purchased knowing they would be used on a SATA II controller, so I didn't swing for SATA III drives. I would have went with another drive if I had SATA III on both slots. These happened to be the lowest cost option, and reportedly reliable with its 32nm NAND flash that is rated for more writes than 25nm counterparts.

    I don't really care about synthetic benchmark numbers, and the newer SATA III SSD's aren't much faster at writing uncompressed video. The 'peak' numbers sure are higher, but they don't perform much better at writing uncompressed video.

    Reliability, performance, and cost were all concerns. The Sandisk Ultra II's happened to most adequately fit my needs.

    What does your system get on the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test?

    My RAID0 setup with SATA II Sandisk Ultra II 120GB SSD's on a SATA II controller, is over 200% of what a single Chronos Enhanced 120GB SSD on SATA III will do.



    It's all in the snazzy Sandforce compression.

    I havent tested my software raid but am using 3 ocz agility 3 of 60 gb each which each hard drive is half the price as the sanddisk and i would say at least twice the speeds I will test them and let ya know...

    The Sandisk Ultra II is rated at 30,000 IOPS 4KB random read, which is 50% higher than the Agility 3. The read/write speeds are similar, at 195 MB/s read 130 MB/s write, in AS-SSD. This would indicate a maximum throughput of 390MB/s and 260MB/s respectively on the Agility 3, of which my real life setup achieves around 85% of, on a SATA II controller.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227726

    The 120GB version is $30 more than I paid for my drives for identical capacity.

    I did a bit of research, and these drives appear to be the best bang for the buck, along with being one of the higher performing SATA II SSD's on the market. I'd love to see what your 3 SSD RAID0 setup will do in Lion on the same benchmark. All the evidence I can find suggests the Sandisk drives are fairly good.

    Fair enough on the MBP unfortunately my macbook wont run aja benchmark neither does my Hackintosh for some reason and lets not forget we are using Software raid and one of the mean reason I bought it was cos of sata 3 and my motherboard limits the speed of my sata 3 ports so am running it on the sata2.... Ill use Disk speed test and let you know... and in the UK HW seems to be cheaper?... I paid £60 around 100 dollars... the reading on the sata2 raid of 2 ssds is around 450 reading (windows mind you) and the random write @4kbs is 50.000 iops...

    I figured out why I couldnt run the HDD benchmarks, it turns out I got to allow it, by changing the hard drive to full access, anyway I got a nvidia controller on my MacBook so most of the time my Sata 2 controller will run the SSD at 1.5 instead so the benchmarks arent great, till it uses the full 3Gb full speed, by the way the hackintosh flies thanks to my 4 SSDs on raid (still only software raid) cant find a decent raid card for both win and mac.

    OK so finally here are my tests with my MacBook 8.2 with 2 SSDs Agility 3 in RAID 0, I think is good enough for the crappy Nvidia sata2 controller
