Pros: Nine of these replaced ten 1TB drives that had been running since the 1TG Greens came out. The Greens needed a total of three replacements in that time, all three for SMART pre-fails. None have needed replacement after the first year and a half, as expected. They were replaced to increase capacity. None of the nine failed their 72-hour initial load test.
Cons: The sale I purchased these on had quantity limits or I would have bought more. They do not have a substantially higher transfer rate than the 1TB drives they replaced, so with 3x the capacity it will take longer to do RAID recoveries when one fails.
Other Thoughts: Everyone has a favorite brand; I've had drives fail with Western Digital but thanks to backups and RAID never experienced data loss. Their RMA process is top notch and replacement drives have been as reliable as new drives.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The screen was cheap. It has worked perfectly, with a nice bright picture and reliable mechanicals.
Cons: I can tell it's flimsy. Maybe I will get a couple more years out of it? So far it has worked fine, but it is obviously loosening up with time. There are minor sparkles.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P5K-VM LGA 775 Intel G33 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Supported 45nm processors after a flash to BIOS 0703, lots of onboard features, good layout, great overclocker.
Cons: Sometimes resets the CMOS or refuses to boot due to a Chassis Intrusion error. Do some forum searches, this problem is common. It's more a light annoyance than anything.
Other Thoughts: Seriously, this board is a great overclocker.READ FULL REVIEW
