HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401n Workgroup Up to 35 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works, it prints fast, as expected for an HP laser printer.

Cons: The drivers are horrible. I've sold three of these printers, two purchased at the same time, another recently purchased, at least 6 months apart and all have had the same issue. It starts out fine until it loses connectivity. This issue has occurred on Windows XP (32-bit), Vista(32-bit) and 7 (64-bit) locally connected via USB and on completely different networks in different geographic locations. Jobs get stuck in the queue and the machines have to be forcibly rebooted (spool service won't close, manual machine reset required) in order for the jobs to print. I tried updating the firmware, which states it is addressing these issues with only short-term success. I ended up having to uninstall the drivers and download the HP Universal drivers from the website in order for the issues to go away.

Other Thoughts: HP's corporate laser printers are still the best, but their "workgroup" and home-line printers have gone down hill over the past 10 years. These issues should not be present with any printer, especially one labeled "Pro". If HP can't produce a small printer without issues right out of the box at what they feel to be a "competitive price", then produce one without issues at a price that makes it profitable. People will buy what works; ruining a manufacturer's reputation over a price point will cause consumers and resellers to look elsewhere for their needs.

Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST3000NM0033 3 TB 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Consistently fantastic drives. 01/23/2014

This review is from: Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST3000NM0033 3 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Seagate Constellation drives deliver consistently reliable performance that lasts for years. They're also quiet, even after years of use. 5 year warranty! - Best in the business.

Cons: I can't think of any cons.

Other Thoughts: These are all I'll sell to my clients when building machines, all I would ever consider buying for my personal machines. I love Seagate's Constellation series and I hope they only improve and force competitors to increase their own quality and durability because there is nothing else out there right now, nor has there been since Seagate bought out Maxtor.

Antec NSK 4482B Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 380W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Quiet, light, but stout, strong case, decent power supply (better than entry-level) for most builds, lots of room in the case for air-flow and drives. No frills, but easy to work on. Rounded edges on everything (no sliced fingers). Nice large case fan to help reduce noise with variable speed adjustment.

Cons: Terrible power switch design. I've built nearly 100 machines with this case and in the past year several of them have had this failed power button issue. I only got warranty satisfaction out of Antec once and even that was like pulling teeth and took weeks. I ended up repairing the buttons myself by filling the conical cosmetic button back with the head of a large screw and hot glue and then hot gluing the switch arm back in place to the rear of the bezel, all the while eating the labor costs, of course.

Other Thoughts: This debacle made my company look less reputable. It's hard enough competing with the mass manufacturers, touting quality and longevity without having customers calling up saying they think their machine is dead. As such, and with the higher quality of other power supply manufacturers, my company is no longer dealing in Antec products. After nearly 15 years of doing business almost exclusively with Antec for cases and power supplies their lack of expedient warranty support turned me off. And while sourcing separate cases and power supplies is more expensive, the quality and design is better and warranties are hopefully better serviced.
