Pros: Quiet and reasonably fast.
Cons: Of the 2 I ordered, one of them is great and the other was DOA.
NewEgg handles this superbly as always but, I wanted to try WD after having an almost 50% DOA rate with Seagate Constellations. Unfortunately, no better but no worse.
Other Thoughts: Don't know what is up with HDD manufacturers these days. Maybe my luck is bad. When I was buying Seagate, I just started ordering half-again as many as I needed because there were always some bad ones. Looks like switching to WD didn't help. I suppose our S.O.P. must always be to order 50% more drives than you need because half of them are going to be bad right out of the box.
But, I sincerely appreciate how quickly and completely NewEgg handles the RMAs.
This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive
Pros: I love these Seagate NAS drives for their reliability and performance.
Cons: I've bought many of these drives over the years in different sizes and there is one thing consistent with all the Seagate drives I've ever bought - about 1 out of ever 4 is DOA. If you plug them in and they work, they will work forever. But, at least 25% of them are DOA - never even recognized as a valid drive. If you need 4, order at least 5.
Other Thoughts: NewEgg is the ONLY place to buy these drives because their return policies are GREAT!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance K65 Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches
Pros: love the compact design - I never mastered the number pad anyway so, it's nice to have that real estate back on my desk
very solid build and the feel is just excellent; after only one day, I can feel my typing speed and accuracy coming back.
I'm not a gamer but this is a great keyboard for just pounding code and other typing intensive operations
Cons: the documentation that comes with this keyboard is somewhat limited to "plug it in";
the corsair website had a bit more info about the switch settings but after reading it, I discovered that I won't need to move the switch from the default settings anyway.
Other Thoughts: after one afternoon with this keyboard, I ordered another one.
the only weird thing about this order was that it took much longer to receive it than most Newegg orders I've placed. Maybe Newegg has spoiled me but, 8 days seemed like quite a long time.
