Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quick shipping is the only positive thing I can say about these.

Cons: I ordered two of these drives. One was DOA and I had to RMA it. The other drives has not yet been thoroughly tested.

While waiting on that RMA, I ordered two more. One has massive amounts of bad sectors. The other drives has not yet been thoroughly tested.

I'm seeing at least 50% failure rate out of the box and it may be much worse than that.

Other Thoughts: I've had a larger than usual number of bad drives from Western Digital's Green series in the past couple years (I buy nearly 100 drives a year).

I will not be ordering any more Western Digital Green drives and I've heard nothing but bad things about their Blue series.

Intel S3420GPRX ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1156 Intel 3420 DDR3 1333/1066
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: none

Cons: The board does not ship with an I/O plate. Intel will not send you one. They won't even sell you one. I had to pay $20 to get one from another online store. Secondly, Intel's site won't tell you what memory has been confirmed to work or in what configuration. As it turns out (several thousand dollars later) you can't run 6 unbuffered DIMMS on this board. It would have been nice to know that beforehand but their site won't tell you.

Other Thoughts: Intel's support is the worst I have ever experienced and I say this as a 15 year veteran sysadmin.

BELKIN WaveRest F8E262-SLV Gel Mouse Pad - Silver
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: decent mouse surface and fast shipping as always.

Cons: Like other reviewers have mentioned, this has two LARGE cons.

-horrible chemical smell that is making me physically ill
-the wrist rest is very stiff and uncomfortable.

Other Thoughts: I had a previous Belkin Waverest and the wrist rest was very comfortable. This one is not. That is the only reason I purchased it.
