Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked well while it lasted. Good value for what I paid for it in May, 2012.

Cons: Warranty ended May, 2012. Drive died July 2012.

Other Thoughts: Used it for my TV drive for Windows Media Center. 2TB was a nice size for recording a lot of TV shows through my Cable Card.
In June, shows stopped recording to the drive and had a hard time in playback. The drive died completely in July.

5 out of 5 eggs Great controller - hold off if you have Windows 8 10/30/2012

This review is from: Logitech F710 (940-000117) Wireless Gamepad

Pros: If you love the feel of the Playstation style controller and need to play with an Microsoft/X-Box control system, this is the controller to have.

Cons: No Windows 8 support.

Other Thoughts: I've had this controller for a while and I am very disappointed presently that Logitech has no created a driver for this controller to work on Windows 8. If you have Windows 8 and want this controller, hold off on it until Logitech resolves the situation.

Kingston SSDNow V+100 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Incredible speed increase from my normal 7200 RPM drive.

Cons: No cons so far (knock on wood).

Other Thoughts: It's pricey, I understand that, but if you want the speed increase, especially for Windows, do it.

I had initially bought the drive because someone asked me to build a computer for them and one of the requests was to have very fast boot. I told the person about SSDs but explained I had never used one personally. When I saw this one on sale and a nice rebate, I figured I'd give it a try.

One thing of note, if you plan to use this with 'regular' hard drive for data storage (as I do), you'll find that the initial loading of Windows will not speed up. I've read someplace that this is because of the Prefetch/Superfetch/ReadyBoost functions in Windows designed to speed up booting and application loading. Because these functions will also look to the other hard drive(s), loading Windows slows down to 'normal' speed. But once it reaches the login portion, this move very quickly.
