Hitachi (0F10942) 2TB 32MB Cache 7200RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I replaced six 1TB drives with these in my FreeNAS file server, and.... these have worked fantastically.

Rock solid for the two weeks they've been installed / running.

Cons: Not SATAIII? Rotating Hard Drives can't saturate the SATAII bus, so that is hardly an issue.

Other Thoughts: I forgot to get around to benchmarking individual drives before installing them all into my file server.

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Motherboards 02/10/2015

This review is from: ASRock H61MV-ITX LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I've used four of these for assorted XenServer / ESXi / Hyper-V servers (1U / mini-towers) with quad gigabit intel NICs, and these things blow me away. (built a home lab with these)

VT-D works wonderfully, all of the visualization software works out of the box.
I've used a few different CPU's with these boards, to include: 2600k, G1610, 3330s, and G540. Each has worked fantastically.

The Network BIOS updating feature is a favorite.
To get Windows Deployment Services running properly, I had to add the Ethernet Drivers to my image, but that's to be expected.

Cons: I wish that the integrated NIC was Intel, and higher performing, but.... at this price point? I love everything.

Other Thoughts: If you're building a home lab, this board, a $40 celeron, 2*8GB sticks of memory, and a nice NIC goes a LONG way.

Rosewill RCX-SC1U - 70mm Twin Ball Bearing CPU Cooler Fans

5 out of 5 eggs Works very well 01/24/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-SC1U - 70mm Twin Ball Bearing CPU Cooler Fans

Pros: I have this installed in my Untangle box, a short 1U case with a Celeron G1610. Even with the fan turned down to 1 (out of 10) in my BIOS, it keeps the CPU almost at room temperature.

Cons: It gets a bit loud when on full, but that was completely expected.
