Pros: Dual gigabit, low power ~22 watts, UEFI bios is nice.

Cons: Would not output to my display with either VGA or HDMI until I reset the CMOS. Very weird but works great now.

Other Thoughts: Using this with Pfsense 2.1 RC1 64bit booting from a USB flash drive. Recognizes onboard NIC's flawlessly. Using the spare PCI slot for another drop in NIC for my optional interface. Paired this board with 2 gigs gskill 1333 ram, F3-10666CL9D-2GBNQ, Stock timings. Works great.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs cool <30 c most of the time with 80mm cooling fan. Quiet operation. Price. Online life critical attributes have not moved south according to crystal disk info.

Cons: Nothing Yet. Was a little hesitant buying this with the condition of the hard drive market but i rolled the dice anyways because sometimes you just have to. Mechanical storage is a fat cheap dinosaur. Solid state is the future just very expensive at the moment.

Other Thoughts: Power on hrs 618. Almost a month running non stop no problems thus far. Frequent spin up and down times between runs. Mostly down at night. Using this drive for a media server so 5900 rpm does justice. Educate yourself with GPT partition wisdom.
