This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT4000100
Pros: small, light and quiet.
Cons: seems to run a little warm. but its got a lot of vent holes..
Other Thoughts: been using the drive for months now and its fast and snappy. works right out of the box in USB 3.0 how I plugged it in.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have built a lot of systems and used a lot of PSU's over the course of the last 10-15 years. This is a brand I have always wanted to get but they usually have quite a high price premium to comparable other units. Unit is extremely quiet, feels solid and has plenty of connections. Lots of people on forums around the web say these PSUs are rated conservative and that this unit is actually closer to a Gold rated if not already so.
Cons: Non Modular but I did know this before buying. I have had modular for the last 3 or 4 build cycles and I assumed I could easily cope with the mass of cables. There is a lot of cables here... just be aware, I was able to hide most of what I didn't use behind my motherboard but if you don't have a good case that will let you do this they are going to have to go somewhere. Not worth taking away an egg.
Other Thoughts: This review is for an open box unit I was lucky enough to snag. 80+ Silver(or better), Single Rail, PC P&C, Potential better performance than rated. Unit will remain on for a moment after shutdown to cool. This baby is going with me to my next PC build, but for now it is calling home;
AMD FX 8150 4.6Ghz
20 GB RAM
ASUS ROG Crosshair V
Two Radeon 280x Crossfire
Three Seagate 750GB RAID 0
Seagate 4TB USB3.0
250GB Samsung EVO
Antec 1200 Case(numerous case fans with LEDs)
22"-29"-22" Eyefinity at 6400x1080
Pros: Good quality. 2 fans to keep it quieter. solid metal backplate. Long crossfire cable included instead of short one.
Cons: accessories. Included items seem a little plain. A VGA - DVI adapter which I don't think anyone buying this card needs, a 6pin to 8pin adapter(again, if your buying this card you probably have a good PSU in the first place)
Other Thoughts: I always try to go with the Asus or Sapphire brands over the years and I have learned more time than not they are always the best quality and have the best overclocking ability. towards the bottom I have learned you have visiontek and XFX(as far as overclocking ability and cooling solution,from expereinces) I am surprised to find that everytime I end up getting a Powercolor GPU I am always pleasantly surprised and very happy owner. Overclocking ability is great on both cards I have. Thanks , will buy again!READ FULL REVIEW
