Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3160318AS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Speed and performance up to par. Price is very nice even for a refurb.
If this is anything like the old refurb 7200.10's I got way back when, I'm counting on them to last a while too.

Cons: You may get drives with bad sectors or leftover data on them. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these. One tested perfect, had good SMART status and was completely wiped. Same for the second but it still had a full windows installation on it from an HP machine, and a third has good performance and was cleanly wiped but is still showing 3 bad sectors.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX90G 3.5

4 out of 5 eggs Don't be too scared of the word "refurbished." 12/04/2013

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX90G 3.5" 90GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Performance is like new as it should be.
It is well out of warranty now (running 10 months at the time of this review) and no signs of degradation or slow-down.
I like the 3.5" form factor because no adapters or mods of any kind are needed for typical desktop installation.
Newegg had this priced nicely when I got it in Feb '13. 64.99 list price and a -$15.00 email promo code made for a hella $50 deal.

Cons: I suspect that in this particular drive there may be some rare moments of instability while booting Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1. I can't officially prove the SSD guilty here, but every now and then Windows will freeze while at the "starting windows" bootscreen. I never experience this with my previous configuration on this same system with 2 Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 HDDs in RAID0. Only after I installed Windows on this SSD. I only knocked off one egg since it's a rare incident and no other performance problems have ever occurred.

XIGMATEK PTI-G4512 thermal grease with gold grade thermal matrix filler particles
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Performs as well as other name brand compounds with no curing time. No oily texture, easy to apply and spread. A little thinner than Arctic Silver 5, which is a good thing.

Cons: That dang air pocket in the syringe!

Other Thoughts: Although the tube isn't completely filled by volume, it still ends up being an alright value. These things are sold by weight, don't forget that.
Don't waste your time with the spreader. You'll be wasting product and it will spread well on its own if you apply and seat you cooler correctly.
Oh, and to the person who said there's only enough for a couple applications in the tube, you are using wayyyyy too much!
