Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I went to Dairy Queen when I returned it to *Burp* Buy.

Cons: The first WD drive I ever used that refused to format. Low level, drive manager, two machines internally, one eSATA external, one USB external.

Other Thoughts: I've been building since the mid-90's, using predominately WD. These new "Green" drives are a mystery. They're marketed as Advanced Format Drives (AFD) on the WD site, but they're not AFD per the WD Acronis Align tool. Juuusst a bit of a misrep there, 'eh? But I wouldn't care if the dam thing formatted. WD support page says "try a quick format." Heh..sure. It "quick formats" and actually writes data, but who wants to trust it when it doesn't complete a full format?

Especially with that generous 2 year warranty giving
'ya buckets of confidence. (Bought mine in April '12, it was manufactured in October '12) I'll pass on this one.

Cirago USB 3.0/SATA II Dual Hard Drive Docking Station with One Touch Cloning CDD3000

4 out of 5 eggs Cirago HDD Docking Station 04/01/2013

This review is from: Cirago USB 3.0/SATA II Dual Hard Drive Docking Station with One Touch Cloning CDD3000

Pros: Stays connected.
R/W Quickly.
One-touch button works.
Decent fit & finish, not tacky.

Cons: Runs HDD constantly, no spindown, therefore runs HDD at 135 F in room at 65 F ambient. Use a small fan across discs.

Other Thoughts: The marketplace vendor that sells/ships these isn't in a hurry to get it to you. Upwards of 2 weeks.

Price was right at $35.00 on NewEgg eBlast.

SATA only, no IDE provision - meh.

HEC 6K28BBX585 Black 0.8mm SECC Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case 585W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: A fair deal when it was $20.00.

Cons: Cheaper the the average cheap. Power button sticks, reset button fails. No where to put a 80MM case fan in the inside front - relegated to using multiple small, noisy fans. Air intake is poor - dust not easily cleaned without taking off the front... oh, and about that... once your bays are mounted, you can't.

Other Thoughts: I've been building and servicing since the mid-90's, and one thing I've learned is that airflow is critical. If your case can't breath, the innards fry. If you want a desktop case, just get an Antec 300 and do it right.
