Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: For a mechanical drive, this baby is fast! Installing Windows 7 from scratch on a new build took no time at all. The black heat sink is very sturdy and looks great.

Cons: Don't be mislead by the reviews saying this is a quiet drive. It's not. But to put that in perspective, the sound is not what I would call loud for any kind of noise coming out of your PC, but it is noticeably louder than slower mechanical drives. When I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 with this HDD, it was audibly very noticeable that the disk was hard at work installing software.

Other Thoughts: Down the road when SSD's come down a little bit in price I'll buy one for the OS and use this for file and game storage. Overall I'm pleased with this hard drive though.

COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: These babies are quiet! I had to physically look and make sure that they were running because I couldn't hear anything from the outside of the case. The only time I could hear a tiny bit of your typical fan noise is when I forced them to speed up through my bios.

Also, they push some serious air. Well worth the money.

Cons: The rubber pins were a little odd to work with, and there were ZERO instructions with the packaging. Not a single piece of paper, pamphlet or drawing anywhere to describe how the pins work, but they weren't rocket science and seem to do the job just fine after I figured them out.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy these again.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

4 out of 5 eggs Good product, terrible packaging 04/18/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Pros: Way better than XP and 8 in my humble opinion.

Cons: I had to buy a new copy with a new PC build even though I've had it for years.

Reading the product key in the new packaging was TERRIBLE. The key was only listed on the plastic case on a tiny sticker with major watermarking / background colors. I had to pull the camera up on my phone so that I could zoom in to read the key numbers clearly. It wasn't written anywhere else on the case or the associated booklet that came with the disk.
