Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs the good ones are very good 05/16/2014

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!

Corsair Vengeance K65 Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Cherry MX Red Switches
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

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.

Seagate Constellation ES ST1000NM0011 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: fast, quiet, easy to install and configure; good value (when you get a good one)

NewEgg's super customer service and RMA system (which I have had to use way too much lately)

Cons: Quality control - Seagate and WD have both been having some serious quality control issues lately. I have purchased 10 Seagate drives lately and had 3 failures within a few days. Another is acting very suspicious and may fail before the end of the week.
Newegg takes care of these with as little hassle as possible but, there is always a hassle when you have to keep replacing dead drives; packing them up; shipping them back. No fault of Newegg at all.
My colleagues report similar issues with both Seagate and WD and maybe they are related to problems both factories have had. Still this is the worst "batting average" I've ever had with Seagate drives.
