This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100
Pros: I bought two of these on sale for $119 6 months ago. I pulled the drive out of the case and made them internal drives for $60 cheaper than you could find the same drive bare. They have been working flawlessly on my HTPC since, zero issues at all. Looking to buy a few more now. 100mb/sec transfer rates are pretty standard.
Cons: Get them out of the case and you have a cheap 4tb internal drive. Leave them in the case and they seem to get hot quick, which might kill longevity
Other Thoughts: As close as you can get for a reliable, fast 4tb drive nearing the $100 range.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: With this GPU, a Samsung 840 SSD, 4670k at 4ghz, and 8gb ram at 2133, I can crank Crysis 3 all the way up without a single hickup, stutter, slowdown at 1080p. I will be getting a second one of these in the near future to futureproof myself that much more as two of these in SLi offers ridiculous performance. Best money spent for GPU any card, and adding a second makes your computer unstoppable for much less than other cards.
Cons: None for any of today's games. If there is any doubt, SLi them and destroy 780 and Titan FPS scores for much less money.
Other Thoughts: Just order one, don't think twice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: In a day and age where things seem to come DOA, this didn't, and kudos to MSI for that. OC's so easily, I have my 4670k at 4ghz and 8gb G.Skill ram at it's XMP 2133 profile without changing voltages or anything else. It just works, and works well.
Cons: Upon first booting and beginning to install Windows, it was a little bit challenging figuring out the boot order, the UEFI and choices make things a bit confusing i thought. Once I finally selected the correct dvd drive(not sure why it shows anything other than what is installed) Windows finally booted from the disk and loaded as it should without issue.
Other Thoughts: Wish it came with SLI bridge - totally stupid that it doesn't since the slot spacing is not together, and I have yet to buy a video card that includes one as well. So sick of manufacturers touting a gaming motherboard and not including the absolute basics. just one more thing I have to try and find when I get my second 760 GTXREAD FULL REVIEW
