MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very quiet. Comes with free Assassin's Creed 4.

Cons: The included software installer does not display correctly under Windows 8.1 x64 (fresh install). The VBIOS/firmware is not UEFI GOP compliant out-of-box.

Other Thoughts: I bought this mainly for the quietness of its heatsink/fan design, and that does not disappoint.

I couldn't install the included software from its installer, since it does not display correctly and I could not really proceed with it. It does not look like there are a whole lot to install aside from AfterBurner, which I do not care for much since I don't plan to do excessive overclock and factory settings are fine.

The original firmware/VBIOS is not UEFI GOP compliant, so Windows 8.1/motherboard UEFI cannot do ultra fast boot. I wrote a request on MSI's support forum since they seem to provide users regularly with such need.

Rosewill RHSP-13002 - Wall Mounted Surge Protector - 3 Outlets - 2-Port 2.1A USB Charger
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap (was $14.99 when order placed), USB charger.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Didn't realize it comes with green lighting on top of the unit serving more or less as a night light. Not bothersome to us.

The unit helps greatly in organizing our multiple mobile device charging mess.

Seagate Hybrid Drive  ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Included MLC flash supposedly would make it speedy for accessing frequently used data; fairly quiet.

Cons: None so far. Not 5-year warranty.

Other Thoughts: I use this as the data drive, so cannot comment on its comparison to a real SSD. From online forum/website's testing, this is probably the one of the quietest 7200rpm drive out there.

I am a bit hesitant on its 3-year warranty and also reported reliability issue with Seagate. I am not a heavy buyer/user, but I have owned Seagate and WD drives in the past few years and so far all of them are still working fine. I did a whole-drive scan and every sector seems fine; will update later with torture tests. The only consumer-grade drive that has 5-year warranty is the WD Black, which apparently is louder and not necessarily faster. Data on this will go to backup NAS anyway.
