SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5

4 out of 5 eggs SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive 08/16/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D401TDB Black

Pros: Picked this up here when it was on sale for 125 which is a decent price for a 4Tb drive.
DO NOT let it auto-run and install or you'll have allot of cleanup to try and het rid of it.
Formatted out to 3.63Tb NTFS running Win 8.1 Pro x64.

Software and manual come pre-installed on the drive so if you want to keep it copy it over before you format it, you can always go take a look at it later if you want to try it.

I always do a full (Long) format on all of my new drives before I use them.This is the best time to test your new drive for any problems or bad sectors before you place anything important on it. Quick format is the default option so click it off. It'll take a little time but I feel it's best.

Runs quite, can't hear it over my PC and it's pretty quite..

Cons: Hangs my system, it Freezes my system when waking up from sleep mode. I'm not sure if its the software or hardware related yet. Will update when I figure it out

Software has a very high impact on startup times!

Cable is a bit short

Won't work with my TiVo box :( I knew that, but wish it would

Other Thoughts: Good value especially when its on sale

Taking off 1 star due to the poor software

Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive 06/25/2014

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I purchased 6 of these and use 4 of them set up in a RAID 10 array (raid 10= 1 pair sripped for speed, the other pair mirrored) there set up in my closed loop water cooled gaming rig. I only have 2Tb of space due to the raid 10 setup. Where 2 are used mirroring the other 2, so it shows up as a single 2Tb drive. So I gain the benefits of stripped and mirrored, and don't really have to worry very much about backing up because if 1 drive fails you just replace it and it‘ll rebuild the array.
They perform well setup like this, I believe that the added cache really helps them perform well. Have been running this setup for around 8 months now without a hitch. 2 of the 6 drive I bought have been testeed and put away just in case I have a failure in my raid setup. While they were on sale I bought them all at once just in case they discontinue this model.

Cons: They're cheaper now.

Allthough my raid setup works well with the onboard controller, I wish I would have bought a diedicated raid controller card just for increased performance that I've heard they offer.

Other Thoughts: Good inexpensive 1Tb drives. Cheap enough to use in any sort of raid setup.
I highly recommend a raid 10 setup, but a raid 5 is also good.

My mobo is an Asus Sabertooth Z77 with all the bells and whistles with an I-7 3770k cpu, 32Gb corsair ram, yes it overclocks very well if configured properly, but I don't really need to OC it the built in turbo boost bumps it up to 4.1Ghz when needed

This review is from: Coboc CY-CAT5E-50-BL 50ft.24AWG Snagless Cat 5e Blue Color 350MHz UTP Ethernet Stranded Copper Patch cord /Molded Network lan Cable

Pros: Not much to add beyond what the description says.
It works like it should.
It's reasonably inexpensive, especially compared to a local purchase.
Good and Flexible
Good variety of of legnths, I needed 50ft

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I ordered several of the these in various legnths, the longest being 50ft. Ordering several cables at once will saves you a llittle more, especially on shipping. So you might as well pick up a spare or 2.
.
Plan to run a couple of them under the house and add Gigabyte switches in closet or out of sight. It's fairly in-expensive for cabling and switches, got the Gb switches here for <$18.00. I prefer to have easy access to connect all my network devices to.Most everything is wireless ready nowadays, but it‘s allways good to have a good hard-wired Gb connection available for the best connection possible, especially for streaming video. Hate to pay for have high speed internet and related services and end up seeing the dreaded buffering wheel or laggy video.
