Pros: Shiny, Quiet, Cheap
Cons: Post-flood GREEN drives from WD have gargage components. Buy a Black drive if you want "some" quality. Drive never did really work
Other Thoughts: I bought several of these about 3-4 years ago, and they worked fine, till my daughter accidentally sent one to the floor (after tripping on a cable I use when plugging the drive externally. So Got a post-flood replacement via warranty, and THAT ONE never did work right. Sometimes it would connect, sometimes not, well a couple of weeks ago, it started smoking from the Motherboard. I emailed WD to try to get it replaced, and here ten days later, NOTHING REPLIED, (when they claim to reply within a day or two). So needless to say this put a sour taste in my mouth for the Green drive family of western digital. My replacement drive they sent will run out of warranty soon, and I don't expect they'll contact me AT ALL at this point. BIG THUMBS DOWN TO YOU WESTERN DIGITAL!!!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: quiet, runs cool
Cons: After I returned my 1st Green drive for warranty (due to an accidental drop from my 6 yr. old). Western Digital sent me a post-flood replacement drive (after I paid for the postage ($25.00), and the replacement drive they sent me NEVER really did work properly. I used it as an external drive to store ALL my home videos (total of 125 DVD's), which I stored in a Safety deposit box to keep it safe, and using it only to update videos to it. Anyway, sometimes the drive would spin, sometimes not, and would require several attempts of plugging it to my PC to get it to work, WELL Within 3 yrs "supposed" warranty of the replacemnt drive, it started smoking and now ALL my videos are trapped in the drive and are unobtainable. This experience put a sour taste in my mouth in buying ANY future GREEN drives. The point of this review is to warn YOU...Buy anything OTHER than a WD GREEN drive! Take it for what it's worth. I will probably still buy Western Digital, but will no longer purchase any of their green drives. I read too many review warning that they're junk compared to the Black drive, and after this experience, I BELIEVE THEM NOW.
Other Thoughts: Stick to Black drive, the post-flood green drives are garbageREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer VC65 V65 VGA Cooler
Pros: NIce looking, quiet running, fit my card.
Cons: had to sand aluminum heatsink on my video card for it to fit.
Other Thoughts: This fan was not really my 1st choice for my Nvidia GeForce 7300GT, as it didn't look like much on the site, but couple of factors swayed my decision to purchase. First thing is the pin distance. I measured my card at exactly 80mm's, and wanted one that specified this. Most VGA coolers didn't say what the distance was. I preferred the Vantec Iceberg Copper VGA, but it didn't say much other than there were 2 mounting screw locations. Second thing that made me go with this one, is that my video card had only 2 pin connector, and the Vantec, had 3. I didn't want to doctor it up, so I went with my "gut" and chose the one I pretty much knew would fit. It keeps my card at 48° C, so not the best cooling. My GTX 550 Ti's are running at 35 & 40. all in all it works, and only time will tell if it was worth the money (which wasn't really top dollar).READ FULL REVIEW
