Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Tons of space, surprisingly fast, very quiet 01/30/2014

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Was able to consolidate multiple drives.

This drive is very quiet.

The spin-up time is far less noticeable (and far less noisy) than the Western Digital Green drives I've used for mass storage in the past (which also died on me...twice).

All of my Steam games are now stored on this drive and even though it is 5400RPMs, the load time hasn't suffered much at all versus having been stored on a 7200RPM Western Digital Black drive previously.

I would highly recommend this drive to anyone who has a serious need for space or for consolidating multiple drives (saves energy, less heat generated, most hard drive space per drive if you have a small case that may only have room for one or two drives, etc).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive for two months so far. It works flawlessly. It replaced a 2TB and 1.5TB drive. It stores all my pictures, music, movies, games, and documents accumulated over many years and I still have over 600GB free.

I have a lot of faith in this drive based on my years of using Seagate drives and my experience with this one thus far. Of course, putting all your eggs in one basket can lead to sadness. Sadness can not get your data back. Back up your most precious data!

nMEDIAPC Silver Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 5000S Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Use a regular ATX power supply - very important for cheap/easy replacement if needed. Required for high performance GPUs if used in build.

Quality construction. Lightwieght, durable, polished finish. No sharp edges. Plenty of working room for a HTPC case.

Great price for the quality and enough room for most GPUs (Sapphire 4860 fits just nice).

Stays cool even during extended gaming sessions.

Cons: Front panel a little difficult to open and close - the catch takes more pressure to operate than I'd have expected. Still, it works smoothly.

The front panel hook ups are a terrific feature but all of the wires do add to clutter inside the case. Careful cable management is a must. Case comes with cable ties and stick-on cable holders to help with that.

Very large GPUs will probably not fit in this case. The Sapphire 4860 fit PERFECTLY as would cards with the same dimensions but the 58xx series ATI cards and the Nvidia 460 and up may not.

Other Thoughts: The front panel does sit flush and looks great when closed - saw some reviews indicating that was not the case but the one I got does not have that issue at all.

The case does not include the LCD screen. It is sold separately Item#:N82E16811996003. LCD looks great and really finishes off case but admittedly not all that useful.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Exceptional performance. Have tried many different thermal pastes and Arctic Silver consistantly outperforms any other thermal transfer solutions.

Cons: Never once have I personally experienced an issue, however I have seen speculation that it *may* cause an issue because it is mildly electrically conductive. Used properly (and use is far from rocket science), this would never be an issue.

Other Thoughts: This is the only thermal paste I would use or recommend to others. Sure, others work. Arctic Silver works best.
