WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Died a little more quickly than other WD products I've owned 07/02/2016

This review is from: WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: -Good size for someone who has plenty installed and large media libraries
-Not particularly loud

Cons: -Died after one year and some change
-So, I guess you get what you pay for?

Other Thoughts: Purchased this drive in March 2014, and it failed in May 2015. It was a slow failure, though, and I was able to recover my data before it completely died 2 days later. This is the first time I've ever had a hard drive fail, so I wasn't even sure what it was at first. I'd still recommend WD products as a whole (my WD 1tb EX HDD from 2008 still works!)

I was either unlucky and received a bad apple, or this specific line of HDDs by them isn't so great. Proceed with caution.

MSI N660 Gaming 2GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The two big quiet fans keep the card nice and cool, haven't risen about 36c under heavy load. Card has handled everything I've thrown at it at max settings.

Cons: I'm running 1280x1024, so I'm not sure how this single card will handle 1920x1080. But I guess I'll find out when my new monitor gets here!

Other Thoughts: This is my first NVIDIA build, and I'm never going back to the messy hell that was AMD video drivers. NVIDIA's drivers are flexible, easy to use, and even come with built-in recording and streaming software. Very impressed.

Pros: They plug into the motherboard and work as advertised. Nothing to write home about here, folks.

Cons: No cons. I've used these in multiple builds and have never had any issues.

Other Thoughts: If you are building a computer and need RAM, buy this. If you need more later, buy more.
