Seagate Hybrid Drive  ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs greatest secret in the pc industry imo 02/18/2015

This review is from: Seagate Hybrid Drive ST2000DX001 2TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Pros: These SSHD's are nice! You can configure a SSD and HD to preform like a SSHD but I love the simple form factor and not having to configure anything. It is great for builds you are doing for other people. Lots of space and fast times, whats not to love! In theory a SSHD should out last a SSD and HD so that is a + too.

Cons: More people don't know what a SSHD is so when you show them a build their minds melt going why no SSD and you have to explain you used a SSHD and they go " Oh ... whats that?"

Other Thoughts: These are great for any build , especially older computers that can't combine a ssd + hd for the same effect. 1 drive is all you need.
Elitest jerks may gawk but serious system builders love these things and i have purchased many many ssd's , hd's and now have been pushing SSHD's For the avg person this is the way to go hands down!

Logitech MK710 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black

5 out of 5 eggs BUY THIS! Best product in a computer build. 07/31/2014

This review is from: Logitech MK710 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black

Pros: 10/10 A++ This is the best wireless mouse keyboard combo there is IMO. I have purchessed well over 15 of these sets for my clients and it is hands down the combo I try and push if they can afford it. It is Super classy , super comfortable and works SO well. Their is no product in a computer build I can recommend as strongly as this keyboard and mouse. I have tried and used 100's of keyboards and mouse's and if you are going for Class. This is the ultimate. It's range is super far , battery life is forever and just the most solid thing I have every bought for PC's consistently. I am so super serious when I say NO other part even comes close to having my recommendation like this. The mouse honestly beats my Razers , the keyboard just feels right and if you're doing a HTPC look no further. All I can say is when I build a machine and put My name on it for someone else , this is what I want them to have and I can recommend ANYTHING! Thing is you are going to use your keyboard and mouse the most , it is the thing you are going to see the most. So next to being happy with the look of your case this is a place you need to pay attention to detail and not be cheap and get the right product. Over the last 4 or so years NO product has won me over like this.

Cons: Not 1. They have great range, can survive a spill , everything fits just right and it is classy. I am a very hard reviewer. Their is NOTHING wrong with this keyboard. If you get a DOA get another one.

Other Thoughts: Seriously best keyboard and mouse especially when setting up HTPC's

Fractal Design Core 3300 (FD-CA-CORE-3300-BL) Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Very Nice case Only few design flaw 07/31/2014

This review is from: Fractal Design Core 3300 (FD-CA-CORE-3300-BL) Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a very sleek case. Once you're past the flashy lights stage of PC building and looking for something classy for your self or a client this is a very solid choice! It has a brushed metal front finish and the air ports are off to the side of it. Over all the classy look of this case is what supports it's weight. It is rather sturdy feeling and has what most system builders will look for.

Cons: I am a tough reviewer. Here are the faults on the case as a Professional System builder. 1st there is no hard drive cage but they rather want you to mount your HD's and SSD's sidewise off a mounting bracket. This looks tacky but also doesn't seem that stable to me. I don't like my 3.5's just hanging there. 2nd the front panel Audio cable is very short along with the other header connects so you can't use the cases own cable management for most ATX boards and have to route them around the front of the mobo. A few extra inches would of been nice but alas they are a very tight fit. 3rd the CD rom bay doesn't match up perfectly with the rest of the plate perfectly when you install a cd rom , this is very minor 1 MM or less but still the devil is in the details. It also was missing 1 mounting hole for a Gigabyte 970 atx mobo but many cases are.

Other Thoughts: Over all I would rate this case a solid 85-90 and it will be a consideration for all my future projects. I feel as if the over all class and elegance of this case makes up for it's flaws and it's price point for what you get is very good. I would be interested in a more refined product for sure and they would get all my bis. I rank this in my top 10 cases for clients and in my top 3 for less than 50 bucks.
