Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fairly low cost.

Cons: Purchased 4 drives in spring of 2014. By fall of 2015, 3 had failed. All showing bad SMART data, failing to recognize, failing to write date.

Other Thoughts: The Seagate RMA process is easy......ask me how I know!

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Purchased two of the 3 TB drives for a WHS server. Formats to 2.7 TB using MBR. Best price per TB I found. Drives were well packaged for shipping, looks like Newegg has figured this out.

Cons: None yet.

SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) RAID Controller Card

4 out of 5 eggs Works...if you put in some effort 03/01/2014

This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40010 PCI SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) RAID Controller Card

Pros: Using this card in a older P4 Mobo running WHS (the older version, not 2011). I had no PCIe slots, only PCI. Mobo recognized the card right away, WHS not so much.

Cons: Requires a BIOS update to either the NON-RAID BIOS, if you do not want to run an array. OR the RAID BIOS to run one of the many RAID version that the card supports.

Other Thoughts: Go the the Silicon Image website and download the 6.6 bios update. As others have said, flash either the "r" version for RAID or the non-"r" version for no RAID. Reboot and update your drivers according to the setup you intend to run.
I am having issues with the 2TB file limit in WHS, but that is a problem with the OS, not the card.
