Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything I've come to expect from Seagate. Reliable, fast, and affordable.

Cons: None! But see below for troubleshooting.

Other Thoughts: NOTE: If you are using Windows 7, Windows will only recognize up to 2TB. This can be frustrating at first because all 3TB appear in Disk Management (right click on My Computer and click "Manage") but you can only partition up to 2TB.

There IS a simple solution, however. Go to Seagate's website and download their Disc Tools software. Once installed, it will give you an option to extend the unallocated space. once completed (within a few seconds) you can go back into Disk Management and create another File System. The Whole process took me less than 3 minutes and I am running at full capacity.

Other Notes: The drive does power/go into a low power state down, like most drives, when not in use. If it is your primary drive then this doesn't matter because it will be constantly running. If it is used for storage (like mine) it may take a brief 2 seconds to boot up (like an external) and then it's good to go. I'll take 2 seconds over $2,000 for an equivalent SSD any day!

Asus ML228H 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Not only is the picture quality great, but the color as well! The touch screen buttons are a nice feature as well, not to mention the nice slim profile.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you run your speakers through the monitor, be aware that turning the monitor off will turn the sound off as well.

SAPPHIRE 100328L Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Once I configured it, it's been ok. Good resolution and Crysis 2 plays well on it.

Cons: Took WAY too much tweaking. I spent weeks getting it to work right. The card would crash and I would have to restart before it would work again.

Other Thoughts: Go into override settings and increase the fan speed a bit. I don't know why it's defaulted that low, but i keep mine at a minimum of 75% and it stays at a comfortable temperature.
