Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, cheap, easy to install.

Cons: A couple weeks ago it thought my fan was running full time. But there was no air blowing from the fan ports, so I started looking at the only other moving part in my laptop, the aux drive (main drive is SSD). Seagate won't take it back because it hasn't failed yet; noise is not sufficient for a warranty claim.

This problem seems to be well-known. So I guess I'll back it up and buy an HGST drive so I'll be prepared when this one fails. I've been using Seagate drives since the ST-251 days. They're just not as reliable as they used to be.

Other Thoughts: 4 eggs because it hasn't failed to function yet. I will reduce my rating if dies before the warranty runs out.

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of capacity, reasonably fast.

Cons: One of the two drives I bought is dead after about 7 months of light use. The other shows about 35 million errors on the SMART test.

Other Thoughts: The Samsung web site doesn't show this drive any more (actually, it doesn't show any non-SSD drive as far as I can tell), so I've found no easy way to ask them to replace the dead drive under warranty. I will have to call them and sit on hold, which sucks.

Acer S231HLbid Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bright, thin, easy to put together, packaged well (Newegg shipped it in the Acer box, no problems). Includes ALL cables!

Cons: Really bright until it burns in. The controls are not easy to figure out. Power goes to a laptop-style dongle, which means more carp to clutter my cable race. It's not as sharp as my 20" Samsung, but that wasn't 1920x1080; the larger pixels may be what I'm seeing. Height is not adjustable, and it's about 2-3" lower than my old monitor. The blue power light is a little too bright. I stuck a post-it in front of it and it's fine now.

Other Thoughts: A really good deal at $140!
