Hitachi GST Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3020ALA632 (0F12117) 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Faster than other "green" drives
512b sectors make it compatible with WHS/XP/2003 and cause less problems with other situations.
Very quiet and cool in comparison to my WD Black 1TBs

Cons: None, yet.

Other Thoughts: After ordering 10 of these in seperate shipments (to avoid same batches), I finally ordered the last 4 at the same time. The packaging was horrendous (Newegg's fault) and 2 drives were DOA.

Drives come DOA, it happens. These are the only drives I've ever had DOA. Better to have the drives DOA than to die 1 month into operation.

10 of these in RAIDZ2 under OpenIndiana. Very nice.
Plan to add more in the future...

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Most Antec PSUs are very high quality, this one is no different.
Solid, plenty of cables/connectors

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Powering AMD quad core server.
Didn't even need 380w, but was a good deal.

5 out of 5 eggs Good price 03/25/2011

This review is from: NORCO RPC-250 Black 2U Rackmount Server Chassis

Pros: Quality is not that of a Supermicro, but you get a heck of a price for what this is.
Surprisingly quiet.
Good airflow.

Cons: Sharp edges

Other Thoughts: Bought this to house an AMD quad and 8GB of RAM for my community game server.

Very sturdy and solid. Sharp edges, but I can deal with that.

Never once cut myself putting anything in. Power supply went in easy.
