Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast! Not a "green" drive
Still quiet after 17 months.
3TB for about $100
stays cool for a 7200 RPM drive

Cons: short warranty

Other Thoughts: I use it as a storage drive in a PC that never moves around. Windows 8 spins down the drive fairly frequently, maybe that lowers the wear and tear a bit. Again, it's a storage drive. But it's really nice to have to the speed for mass file copying and periodic consistency checking.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Going strong after 5 months
Not the fastest, but no issues either
Had good luck with Vertex 2 when they were current

Cons: Not competitive with current performance levels, but $0.50/GB is nice for machines with lower requirements.
Had to upgrade the firmware out of the box.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what makes SSDs break down or DOA but after 10 (various brands) SSDs over 4 years I have yet to experience a failure. Just the usual review bias I guess.

ORICO WRD150 High Sensitivity 802.11n 150 Mbps USB 2.0 Mini Nano Wireless Adapter Support AP Model / Windows / Linux / MAC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: nice range for its size
seems sturdy
plug and play in windows 8
excellent linux driver support (ralink)
monitor mode / promiscuous operation

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: usable connection 30 feet through 2 walls, 50 ft through 1, can't complain when it's this tiny.

If you need to share a wireless connection with a VM in bridged mode then the wireless adapter has to run in monitor mode, that's my application and it's working well.
