Pros: We own a computer repair shop.
We will no longer Seagate hard drives to our clients.
The failure rate on Seagate 1.5TB, 2TB and ESPECIALLY their 3TB drives is so bad it's amazing they can sell such a terrible product.
Not sure what's going on at Seagate, but it did not used to be this way pre-2011 from my recollection, and I've been in this business a long time.
WD = solid drives.
HGST - Extremely low fail rates, the best we believe in terms of quality at this time.
Just RMA'ed one of these exact 2TB models and guess what... the recertified drive wouldn't even spin out of the box. So many clients have lost data from failing Seagate drives and unfortunately Apple uses them in their Time Capsules.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY SEAGATE HIGH CAPACITY DRIVES
I don't write many reviews but the failure rate is so astounding I needed to warn others.
The amount of failures we see is overwhelmingly young, 1-2 year old Seagates including this model.

This review is from: Rosewill RV350 350W ATX 1.3 Power Supply
Pros: Cheap, feels solid compared to other cheap PSUs
Cons: 3 of the 5 we bought failed in basic PC builds within 6 months, including one that started smoking and melting today in a customer's PC
Other Thoughts: Quality control?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: We regularly order many cases in the $30 range for low to mid-range builds. The metal feels solid, the power button feels solid, much more so than most cases at this price point.
Cons: No USB 3.0
Other Thoughts: If you need something basic for office/client builds, here you go.READ FULL REVIEW
