Pros: Breath's new life into an ancient, budget laptop. The 320 Series I have at work running medical pc's. No issues in 4 years. Matter-of-fact, it's the same drive I use at work.
Cons: Refurb came with 36,802 hours on and 48265 GB's written!
Other Thoughts: This was bought because it was the same price as a low end 120 drive. I know that refurbs are a gamble, but I got taken. Then again, if it fails 3 years from now, was I taken? If I can get 3 more years out of it, that would put me in at 8 years on this laptop. I think a new laptop would be in line with age.
Bought this laptop Xmas of 2010 or 2011. It's a G72 with a processor that is not an i3, but a pentium. The read/writes I got are 254 MB/s and 167 MB/s respectively.
Pros: Plenty Powerful.
Lots of cores.
8 Memory slots.
Plenty SATA slots.
High quality case.
Cons: Odd CPU heatsink placement.
Memory type very finicky.
Great HP support.
Takes ATX PSU
USB 3.0 on Front Panel
Other Thoughts: I got the cheapest Corsair PSU. It happened to not be modular. Yeah, get a modular PSU.
The drives get mounted all around the exterior of the case. If you have to get into reset CMOS or add a card, you're looking at a 20-30 min job.
Lastly, the case supports 2 80mm fans. Buy them. Trust. Me. I got these super quiet ones because this is a NAS for streaming movies around the house. Quiet is good. Quiet also means low speed. That's why you get 2.
