WD My Book 3.0 1TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked out of the box immediately with my Asus P6X58D Premium and Win7 Pro, with no driver installs required. I'm getting transfer speeds of 40 MB/sec for lots of little files (music directories, etc), and up to 100 MB/sec for big files (video directories). I have it set up on my desktop but despite that acoustic disadvantage it runs very quiet, even during heavy transfers. The white LED access light is very small, which is great for late-night operation. Overall an awesome external!

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: The drive even comes with an add-on USB 3.0 card for your computer in case your mobo doesn't support it by default, but I didn't need to use it so I can't speak to its quality.

HIS H587F1GDG Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great card. Devours most games at the highest settings. Runs cool and relatively quiet for a gaming card imo.

Cons: This really isn't a con but I've found that it's already taxed a bit by Metro 2033 - I can't max that game out at 1680x1050 but can get a great-looking compromise at "high" settings.

Other Thoughts: Was pleasantly surprised by the pack-in free game, Dirt 2 - it shows off the DX11 features of the card nicely and is pretty fun if you like racers.

Thermaltake Toughpower XT W0230RU 850W ATX 12V 2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Rock solid power, convenient features. 04/09/2010

This review is from: Thermaltake Toughpower XT W0230RU 850W ATX 12V 2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Purchased this for my i7/5870 build that runs a four-drive RAID array and a single optical drive... this power supply delivers the goods. Delivers power quietly and steadily. Great packaging, they even include a storage bag for all the modular cables you might not use. Unlike other power supplies I've owned, this one has useful status lights on one side so you can make sure that the unit hasn't malfunctioned and is getting power correctly.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Absolutely perfect fit for my Corsair 800D case, cable length wise etc.
