Accell Model B119B-007J 6.6 ft. Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs working well after 2 months hard use 06/22/2014

This review is from: Accell Model B119B-007J 6.6 ft. Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Cable

Pros: The cable is working flawlessly with a 24" (1920x1200) IPS monitor. It's only been two months, but this monitor swivels several times a day and pivots (portrait/landscape - major cable flex) several times a week.

It was also much easier (compared to the old DVI cable) to thread through the conduit it shares with a bunch of other cables.

Cons: None so far.

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Installed 8 of these 18 months ago, and just had my first failure. The drives have been under heavy 24/7 usage in RAID enclosures, in a hot and stuffy equipment room. Because of the conditions here, the drives are usually 25-30% above the max recommended temperature.
Given how cheap these were, I'm impressed -- I expected more failures, and sooner.

Cons: They do fail, obviously, and though these 5900rpm drives do run significantly cooler than their 7200rpm counterparts, you still need decent airflow if you want them to last.

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Used 2 of these to create a virtual RAID1 array (Windows drive-mirroring) in a Dell Inspiron 660 "server" running Windows 8. So far so good, under heavy 24/7 use for almost 2 months. The drives stay much cooler than the 2GB drives they replaced, and perform better -- 150-160 MBps sustained transfer rates WITH antivirus and lots of apps running.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Do a FULL (not "quick" format before you use the drive -- yes it takes hours, but it can save you a lot of trouble down the road! I don't know whether its poor quality control or shipping damage, but brand new drives (of all brands) occasionally show up here with a few bad sectors; a full format marks the sectors as unusable, after which the drives work reliably.
