Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 - Sleeve Bearing 200mm Silent Fan for Computer Cases (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet as advertised.
Basic, functional, No-Bling fan. That means no lights or other gaudy features.
Great airflow. Use it as my inlet fan on a Corsair 650D and you can feel the air move at the inlet. I may get another for the outlet as I don't like the blue light on the one there.

Cons: I'll let you know after a year or too- if any. This replaces a stock fan that had the blades separate from the housing. I don't think this will do the same, but ....

Other Thoughts: The case I have has 200mm in and out. It has a 200mm outlet on top (heat rises- whodda thunk?). It supports a 5820K system that has no heat struggles at all. You can feel the airflow move quietly with good volume with this system. Makes for a great overclocking environment that doesn't sound like your house AC unit.

WD Red Pro 2 TB NAS Hard Drive WD2001FFSX up to 16 bay: 3.5-inch SATA 6, 64MB Cache
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Surprisingly quick. 5 yr warranty. Zero operational issues. Cooler and cheaper than the black drive.

Cons: Price. This size at this price means you might do as well or better with another product at a better price. With SSDs so prevalent any more and increasing in size cheaper, it's getting difficult for HDDs to compete. Drive still was pretty warm in operation.

Other Thoughts: My wife's Windows XP was failing and she wanted to go to 8.1. I recommended a separate drive for this and I took a chance on this drive. This drive takes to booting like a duck to water and is pretty snappy about it. I would NOT hesitate to slap an OS on this. This is an interim drive for her so WD better hustle into the SSD-type market before that day comes. :)

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 10 Year Warranty. Design makes sense- I think it will likely make 10 years and more.

Cons: Price- but I'm not going to let that knock an egg off. Moreover, as competition continues to grow, I think this unit has plenty of headroom to compete in price. But don't hurt yourself waiting for that.

Other Thoughts: Bottom line: I can't afford to lose my data. I upgraded my 256GB 830 with this 512GB 850 Pro because I wanted more space quality. While I'll never care about the difference in speed, I like the idea of having my data there 10 years from now. Regardless- don't forget to back-up anyhow.
