Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked fine for two years.

Cons: Is now failing. On it's way out...

Other Thoughts: I know it's ridiculous to expect drives manufactured in the past half dozen years to last longer than your average underwear, but I have a couple of WD drives from 10-12 years ago that are doing fine. And it's sad that they don't have QC like that any more...

Crucial 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model CT12864Z40B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great deal on decent name brand RAM, my last 2 sticks are still working fine.

Rebate is a nice thing too...

Cons: Had to RMA this last stick because one of the geniuses in the shipping dept in Tennessee actually bent the RAM by taping over the bubblewrap lengthwise, tensioning it so much the RAM was curved when I got it.

Other Thoughts: I was hoping for a replacement but got a refund instead, was kind of strange but their option. I was glad to see the Crucial 2x 1GB kit on sale with rebate so I'll get one of those now, hopefully they will come as the last 2x kit I got: A small box with protective holders in another box for shipping.. Which is how Crucial described how the 1st one should have been sent to me...

COOLMAX CD-510-U2 (SILVER) Aluminum 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Everything works, it has an exhaust fan in the back, which just about every other external case I looked at DOESEN'T. Which is why I bought this.
Sits nicely on top of my tower.
Comes with everything needed.

Cons: Instructions of assembly are suitably vague, even with a pictorial accompniment - But if you are at all PC building savvy, you won't need it. The diagramme also says that the clear bump on top of the case in back holds the LED indicator, in fact these are up front in the lower R corner. The front panel is removable but unless you remove it entirely, there's really no place for an air draw.

Other Thoughts: Have to see when HD's are on sale again and buy another. This is a little more pricey than the other external enclosures BUT it's got
a fan in back.
