Western Digital Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - This drive is fast, I get sequential write speed of ~138 MB/s, and read speed of ~133 MB/s on both my drives. For comparison, my 2009 era WD Black has a read/write speed of ~110 MB/s.
- This drive has a 5 year warranty, which is quite long
- It runs pretty cool, at least with a fan. With a fan pointing at it, it idles at 34 C and under load it goes up to 38 C.
- Out of the two drives I got, neither was DOA. I've run them both through a torture tool as well as a couple other tools and a SMART extended test, no bad sectors, no problems so far (but I've had it for only a few weeks).

Cons: - It is still quite expensive, the comparable Seagate drive is, I believe, $100.
- In my hand, it's pretty silent but mounted in the case, it is quite loud. I have a 640 GB 2009 WD Black mounted right next to it and that hard drive is about 3 times quite than these two (they are both equally loud when mounted). I am not sure what happened but these vibrate quite a bit in comparison to those.

Other Thoughts: It's worth comparing the Seagate STBD2000101 to this WD Black drive.

5 out of 5 eggs Fine zip ties 08/22/2013

This review is from: Seismic Audio - SAPT144 - Zip Ties - 8 Inches (Pack of 50)

Pros: These are decent zip ties, I have used a bunch of them and not had an issue with a single one ripping or breaking. Fairly long as well; would buy again.

Cons: None.

NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Other reviews have covered these. I particularly choose it for the looks.

Cons: The cables connecting the front ports have no slack at all, it's just completely non-existent. This makes it annoying to put in front fans since you cannot get the panel out of the way properly.

And speaking of front fans, because they can draw air only from the cracks on the side of the panel, to me the sound from just a single (and normally quiet) fan sounds like a jet engine. I can hear it quite clearly on the other side of a medium sized room. Take the front panel off (as much as you can) and it's quiet..start putting it on and it's a jet engine. I placed an intake fan on the bottom instead (the case is raised off the floor, otherwise dust would be a problem). I would suggest getting a case that has a mesh in the front if you want a front intake fan and do not want it to sound like a jet engine.
