HGST Ultrastar A7K2000 HUA722020ALA331 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this for price, which may have been a mistake. The reviews weren't that bad, and I figured it would be a good drive for backups. On to the "Cons".

Cons: It's noisy, and runs hotter than any HD I've ever owned, and I've owned many over the years, by all manufacturers. I have it in a USB 3.0 docking station, with a fan blowing on it, and it still goes over 53c during a backup. That's far hotter than any WD or Seagate HD I have.

It's also slow. I'm averaging only 30kb sec. in a USB 3.0 dock, which is slower than other SATA II drives I use. It's not throwing errors yet, but I don't have great hopes for this drive. Would not purchase another. Glad I purchased the extended warranty, though that won't cover lost data, or having to backup the backup due to a now expected failure.

Other Thoughts: Spend more, get better, if your data is important to you.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Deal-FAST Delivery! 07/06/2015

This review is from: TDK 4.7GB 16X DVD+R 50 Packs Spindle Disc Model 48519

Pros: The disks work, which is all one can ask. They were also a great price on-sale.

Importantly, as a NewEgg customer for many years, this was the fastest free delivery yet! I placed the order on Friday 07/03, and it was delivered today, 07/06, in Oregon, even with the July 4th holiday intervening! On-Track delivery is great!

Cons: none whatsoever

MSI 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid performance. Runs like a $150+ board, for almost half the price. Overclocked, still runs cool as can be on air (with an FX6300).

Normally a Gigabyte MB user for my builds, but really happy with this MSI product! Running perfect for a almost a couple of months. Would buy again, and highly recommend.

Cons: The "OC Genie"/Control Center software would lockup (reinstalled many times, to no avail), requiring a reboot. I finally uninstalled it.

No problem though. I simply set and saved my preferred clock & voltage settings in BIOS (you can save up to six), then on boot would choose what I wanted, and then when done gaming, I would again go to BIOS, and select the basic saved setting, and be good to go for everyday operation. I actually prefer the BIOS control method, and with the Click/UEFI BIOS, it's simple.

Some Linux distros do not have the drivers for the sound and/or LAN hardware for this board, for instance, "Elementary". It does work in Linux Mint though.

Other Thoughts: I power my system with a quality 650w PSU, running an Vishera FX6300 (95w) CPU, 16gb RAM, 2-SSD's, 2-HD's, and a GT640 video card w/2gb of RAM. When gaming, I overclock from stock 3.5Ghz to 4.4Ghz, with a .25 voltage increase. Works perfect, and runs super cool on air. With those settings, the frame rates while running FSX are around 60FPS! All flying is now as smooth as can be, and graphics are greatly improved. For the money, this is a hard MB to beat if you're an FSX or FS2004 user.
