ASUS H97M-E/CSM LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked for a while

Cons: After a year, the USB ports on the board failed. I spent a month trying to get ASUS to honor their guarantee and send me an RMA. I gave up and ordered a replacement from another manufacturer and threw the old one away.

Other Thoughts: Buy from another vendor

WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1001FYYG
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: don't know of any

Cons: To clarify my earlier review: after a lot more research, I figured out that this drive uses a 29 pin SAS connector. If you want to use it on a SATA disk controller, you need a 29 pin SAS to SATA adapter.

But their documentation should state this - 29 pin SAS connectors aren't all that common. And their tech support people should know what kind of connector they put on their drive.

WD Re 1TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD1001FYYG
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: don't know of any

Cons: I can't use this drive. They have a special 22 pin sata connector on the back that cannot use regular sata power and data cables. It also cannot use a 22 pin sata connector either. I spent over a half hour on the phone with Western Digital, and they cannot even tell me what kind of connector is on the back of the drive, let alone what sort of adapter to buy to hook it up.

Other Thoughts: If Western Digital is going to use a non-standard cable, they should tell customers ahead of time and be able to answer such a basic question when customers call.
