ORICO AC52535-1S -BL Full Aluminum 5.25 to 3.5 or 5.25 to 2.5 SATA & IDE Hard Drive SSD Mounting Bracket Adapter Kit Bay Converter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Blue color???

Cons: The holes to mount in your case are not tapped, so none of the screws included work. I returned this terrible product for refund. Perhaps it's a quality control issue.

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice packaging, lots of connectors.

Cons: Bad power supply seemed to be functioning, but was defective after much diagnosis and time wasted.

Other Thoughts: This TX750 v2 was part of a new build, and it seemed to be working when first booting and testing. I could install windows, and then problems started; The USB ports didn't have enough power for all external Hard Drives. Even windows would occasionally crash. I suspected the motherboard, video, and case, so I spend a lot of time replacing components, one by one. I never would have guessed that this rather pricey power supply would be the culprit, but when I finally swapped it for another (much less expensive) power supply, the problems disappeared. Corsair replaced it with a new unit after returning it to the manufacturer (I had thrown away the box, thinking this expensive piece was a sure thing, so I couldn't return to Newegg). Lesson learned.....

Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641AS-RK 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good value, reasonable reliability.

Cons: Temperatures are on the high side, but operate well.

Other Thoughts: I've had six of these running in RAID 6 for 4 1/2 years, and two have finally started generating sector errors. I've already replaced one, and I'll be replacing the second one this week.

Note that you actually receive ST3500418AS, not the ST3500641AS advertised. They're the same capacity and performance, though the case is different.
