TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It worked for 2 years and 3 months

Cons: The warranty is 2 years

Other Thoughts: I have heard of cutting the bin sorting and MTBF down to the limit but this one came in on a razor. Controller started reporting block errors even thought SMART showed OK. Got just under a weeks warning before it finally crashed the controller driver even though it wasn't the boot drive. Oddest hard drive experience.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 8 core processing with apps that can do it. Stable and durable. Other than stock cooling, no issues. High value CPU.

Cons: Not all cores are active at all times. OEM heat sink doesn't cut it. You will have to replace it asap. AMD assumed you wouldn't use all the cores at the same time. The high cores will go to sleep very quickly to save power & heat.

Other Thoughts: The first app I ran that could use all 8 cores caused the CPU to overheat and do a thermal reboot. After replacing the stock cooler, temps dropped and using all 8 cores is no longer an issue. Since then, no issues after a couple of years.

Plextor M6M Mini-SATA(mSATA) 64GB SATA 6Gb/s Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-64M6M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No issues. Fit like a champ. I wasn't looking for ultimate speed with this, just that it worked with a PCIe 1X mSATA adapter I used.

Cons: None of consequence.

Other Thoughts: Used on a PCIe 1x Asmedia based mSATA adapter. Bus limited the performance, but I didn't care as it was faster than a hard drive.
