Pros: Worked great for a year and a year ago, the price and speed were good, a year later. I'm on my 3rd one

Cons: The drive began to slow and eventually stopped booting after about 1 year. It got to the point where the drive couldn't even be accessed. So, after I jumped through a bunch a hoops and waited a month I got a replacement that was totally DOA. I am now waiting for my 3rd one to show up. It been 3 or 4 business days and it hasn't even shipped yet and no ETA on when it will. Samsung must be getting a lot of 1 year olds being returned lately.

Other Thoughts: I also purchased 2 HyperX for other machines over 2 years ago and they still haven't had a single problem.

Other Thoughts: If you need a really capable laptop with Win 7 Pro and an i5, grab this.

Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD20EFRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Installed 4 in a H/W RAID 5 configuration using a CineRAID CR-H458 and Windows Server 2008 R2.. CineRAID specifically lists these drives (WD20EFRX) among other as compatible. After getting past initial bad shipping and a DOA and all the aggravation that entails, they are running perfectly

Cons: Something is wrong somewhere. It is either the way they are being shipped or QC at WD. No matter, there is a problem. I'll note that the bubble sleeves look effective they may not be. HGST for example ships with two inexpensive plastic endcaps that keep the drive tight in the bog and suspended from all sides and they always arrive in good order. WD, Seagate and others use a similar system iirc.

Other Thoughts: I never EVER had a problem when Newegg used to ship UPS 3-day as their standard. Ever since the change I've had nothing but problems and slow delivery. Every box has some kind of damage now when it arrives. Newegg is penny wise and dollar foolish I think.
