Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs No Rebate Coming - Forget it 02/02/2014

This review is from: Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair

Pros: Very nice speakers designed by a pro. No issues with the product - superb.

Cons: NewEgg's rebate will be rejected. There is no hope of getting your rebate fairly on these. Forget it. Biggest CON I've ever seen. NewEgg should be ashamed.

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Picked up a 2TB Seagate for $79 BF deal. These run hot. I knew that. They are fast though.

Cons: What I didn't know was that Seagate will change how many drive platters, the size of them, and the number of heads and mfg location at will on these and call them all the same part number. That is just wrong. Some are slower than others and no indication of it in advance. It is called lies, deceits, and falsehoods. If the speed is different, the drives should have different part numbers and this info should be clear up front. Also, all the 2TB and 3TB Barracuda this year need firmware updates that don't really work even then. The drives squeek like pigs. This will surely affect the life of the drive, but Seagate denies this too. I believe NOTHING Seagate says or does. Kibatchi and SingSong F3 and F4 7200 and 5xxx 2 and 3 TB drives were my favorites for longevity and speed in recent years but now are bought by Seagate and QuestionFidgetal. I hope the seagate will live, but really have no confidence in it. 1 Star for dishonesty in all aspects of their business. Drives should ship with working firmware period.

Other Thoughts: These Seagates should only be used with a fan internal or external to control the temperature. You can fry an egg on these after 1 hour running otherwise.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Picked up a 3TB Seagate7200 drive for $89 BF deal. These and other Seagates run very very hot and need fan cooling for good life. I knew this. They are fast though.

Cons: What I didn't know was that Seagate will change how many drive platters, the size of them, and the number of heads and mfg location at will on these and call them all the same part number. That is just wrong. Some are slower than others and no indication of it in advance. It is called lies, deceits, and falsehoods. If the speed is different, the drives should have different part numbers and this info should be clear up front. Also, all the 2TB and 3TB Barracuda this year need firmware updates that don't really work even then. The drives squeek like pigs.

I hope the seagate will live, but really have no confidence in it. 1 Star for dishonesty in all aspects of their business. Drives should ship with working firmware period.

Other Thoughts: I would only use Seagates with good fan cooling internal or external or they will overheat. You can fry eggs on these after running an hour. This excess heat generation is a sign of poor design. Kibatchis run hot too but are very reliable. SingSongs are always cool and fast at any speed in comparison.
