Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I've used both Seagate and Western Digital drives in RAID systems (RAID6, RAID5, and RAID1). All the larger drives (greater than 2 Tb) seem to fail more often than HDDs did in the past?

I haven't seen any obvious benefit comparing Seagate to WD. So I tend to buy whichever is lower cost.

Not sure if this is still true, but Seagate went back to 7200 RPM for all drives. That was a slight plus over WD which was running about 5400 RPM for many of their larger drives.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: HDD failures seem to occur more often with larger drives (greater than 2 Tb in size). Keep that in mind for your backup strategy.

Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit

5 out of 5 eggs Features 12/30/2014

This review is from: Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit

Pros: I tend to upgrade OS whenever Microsoft comes out with a new version. This meant that I have used some OS that didn't fare well. Windows 8 forced a significant GUI change on Users which wasn't appreciated for those of us still using PCs.

Windows 8.1 fixed most of the issues with the GUI. There are a number of minor improvments to the OS in several areas that make Windows 8.1 a better choice in my mind than Windows 7. The OS boots faster, Secure Boot is available, task manager gives more detail, etc.

I bought the Pro version primarily for BitLocker.

Cons: The change in the Windows GUI can be annoying to some people. I don't expect Microsoft will have that completely resolved until Windows 10 is released in 2015?

Other Thoughts: Even with the potential for some annoying changes to the Windows GUI I feel that Windows 8.1 is a superior OS to Windows 7.

Ballistix Sport 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model BLS4K4G4D240FSA

Pros: My first build using DDR4 RAM. I've used Crucial modules in the past and been happy with them.

I wasn't looking for anything special in RAM. Just wanted something that was DDR4 and not too expensive from a reliable company.

Cons: None.
