Zalman ZM-VE300-SE Aluminum Alloy, Acryl, Poly Carbonate 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: In theory I think that this device would be fantastic. From the first days of seeing the VE200 I have wanted one. Sadly this one hasn't been up to snuff.

Cons: Documentation is next to none. I put a drive in the enclosure and it created a _iso folder for me, but it wouldn't see any of the iso files I placed in there, even with rebooting the device. I formatted the drive and started over and I was able to see iso files. I had an older pc that wouldn't boot from the device in Dual Mode, so I set it to ODD Mode, it rebooted, and then it (the device) froze on the VE-300 screen. It's been frozen since. After a few minutes I did pull the usb cable and power cycle it, but no joy. I'll try to reload the firmware to see if I can get it going again, but I am greatly disappointed in this.

Other Thoughts: I hope I can get this going again, or Zalman will come through with an exchange, because I had great hopes for this.

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F2 HD103SI 1TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I put four of these in a budget fileserver to stream some movies to XBMC. They did what I wanted.

Cons: After a little over a year, two of them are clicking. They are under warranty though, and I hope Seagate honors the warranty on these drives as they have purchased Samsungs hard drive division. We shall see...

Scythe SCSK-1100 100mm Shuriken Rev. B  3 Heat Pipes CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It worked great while it lasted

Cons: Only lasted about eight months

Other Thoughts: I've never had a CPU fan go out on any of my own stuff before, kind of disappointing, I went for a brand I held in high regard so I wouldn't have to worry about this sort of thing.
