Western Digital Scorpio Black WD7500BPKT 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great hard drive. I refreshed my Mac Mini with a 250gb Samsung Evo 840 SSD and wanted to install an internal Time Machine backup drive using a 2nd HDD kit from OWC..
It's a little spendier than other 2.5" drives but if the numbers and reviews are right it's worth it.

Cons: Action Packaged is the WORST online purchase experience I have had in a very long time! I placed my order before Labor Day and lingered in processing forever. It was 3 weeks before I received the drive.
This vendor will never see another cent of my money again.
I have been a Newegg customer for 8 years and it has always been a great experience...except this purchase.

Other Thoughts: I did my homework for this purchase because the Mini is so difficult to work on. I only wanted it in the shop once so I chose the Samsung SSD and the WD Scorpio Black based on user reviews.
Research revealed that a Time Machine drive should be 2-3 times the size of the boot drive so 750gb was the choice to keep a 250gb SSD backed up.
This drive had the highest MTBF, fastest numbers and best customer reviews of any other 2.5" HDD.

4 out of 5 eggs A first for me 08/17/2014

This review is from: iolo System Mechanic - Download

Pros: Seems to work as advertized. Great deal as a paid download.

Cons: Didn't notice a big improvement

Other Thoughts: I use my computer for internet access, photo management and document management. Pretty mundane stuff. I don't really do a lot of high risk stuff and I don't game on my system.
I run Avast for security and I'm very adept at system maintenance so I wasn't expecting much. System Mechanic did report some registry errors that were fixed so for a cheap paid download I guess it was worth the price.

ARCTIC Alpine 64 GT Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets, 80mm PWM Fan at 22dBA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great cooling performance for my application... In my application.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just a follow up to my last review. I forgot to mention what proc I run and what circumstances my setup is subject to.
I am running this cooler in my server with a 95 watt quad core Athlon II CPU. Being a server, CPU (and RAM more so) resources are mostly taxed by virtual server machines. I only have 3 VMs running and they operate under light resource loads.
The guys complaining about overheating 8 core FX series procs are expecting too much from a compact cooler.
