HGST/Hitachi 0F12470 Ultrastar 7K3000, 2TB, 64MB, 7200RPM, SATA III, 6.0GB/B, 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: fast, inexpensive, capacity

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: Ordered 7; put 6 into a RAID Z2 array, and transfer speeds have been over 100MB/s, which is the ballpark of Gb/s LAN. So unless you have faster than Gb LAN adapters on both your storage server and your client(s), these are terrific for a NAS.

HGST Ultrastar A7K2000 HUA722020ALA331 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Partitioned two of these into two 931GB volumes each, and constructed a Linux software RAID5 array out of the four 931GB volumes. File transfer speeds while copying my Steam library from previous location to this new RAID5 partition seem to hover either around 30MB/s or 180MB/s. I assume the difference corresponds to small vs large files, but I won't check. The performance is adequate for my use.

Cons: 2 out of 5 did not work.

Other Thoughts: At full retail price, 2/5 units operational would be unacceptable, but at this price, and as long as refunds for DOA items are honored, this is a great deal. A few DOAs are part of what we sign up for when we buy refurbished items, and since both the RMA and the refund were issued quickly they earned all 5 eggs.

Rosewill Xtreme Series RX950-S-B 950W Continuous @40°C ,80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.2 & EPS12V v2.91, SLI Ready CrossFire Ready,  Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 1. functioned adequately for 4 years, drawing much less than 950 Watts
2. didn't ruin any other components when it failed
3. cute puff of bluish-grey smoke when it failed

Cons: Recently, when I finally put a significant load on it from an AMD R9 270X, it died within a month of use.

Other Thoughts: Maybe you would give it more credit for lasting as long as it did, but I won't. A Thermaltake PSU rated at just 850W is currently powering the same hardware, with no problems at all. I knew better than to cheap out on the PSU. Don't repeat my mistake. Avoid this bargain brand, especially for important components like the PSU.
