WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

3 out of 5 eggs Decent drive, not worth the price 03/26/2014

This review is from: WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: I had another 2TB black edition back in 2010 or 2011. I knew their performance was good, and this also performs on par. It does have some speed once it wakes and kicks into high gear.

Cons: It has some noise when it comes out of standby mode and is reading and messing with stuff in the iTunes folder (not sure what it is, but it gets really loud while using iTunes). The speeds are good, although I am not sure they justify the price compared to its Seagate 2TB competitor. It also is slow on wake. Sometimes if I have not accessed a folder in a while on the secondary drive, it can take a while to load files in that folder (sometimes it will even hang on loading folders… sometimes though). I have a 2TB Seagate in my other tower, and well… I am torn, I like the slight speed enhancement, but I do not think it is worth the extra 40 dollars when you deal with the slow lag, higher noise, and higher price. I would have rather picked up the Seagate 2TB HDD and saved the extra 50 bucks, but if you prefer the fastest and have money to burn (speeds are pretty close though), then this might be a good by. I am knocking a star because of the noise, and a star for the price. It is still a good drive, just not worth the price.

Other Thoughts: Just my two cents, but I would go ahead and pick up the Seagate 2TB 64MB, 7200 RPM drive instead. I regret purchasing this one and wish I could have saved my other 40 bucks since you can get the Seagate competitor for only 90-99 dollars at most places.

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646I74770K

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I recently built a new system and replaced an older i7-2600K with this one. It does take up less wattage, and is more powerful than the i7-2600K. I mainly purchased it to keep the same performance as my 2600K, but also for future proofing my rig since I believe games will take advantage of more cores and CPU power in the next few years because of the new gaming consoles. It does get hotter than the older ones though, so be warned, however, they will give you more of a performance boost. I already expected this from reading reviews before I bought it, but just in case, it does get hotter than the 2600K.

Cons: The only con would be the higher temps than the 2600K. I would have liked to see lower temps and more power out of it, but we are still not there yet technology wise I guess.

CyberPower CP1350PFCLCD UPS  1350VA / 810W  PFC compatible  Pure sine wave
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I use these UPS because metropolitan areas have horrible power issues. After going through 2 PSUs within 6 months I decided to cave in and pick up an UPS. Boy I am glad I did! I also have CyberPowers 900W model for my gaming PC and it is also rock solid. I love these things for my PSUs and computers are now protected and do not receive the crazy power outs and brown outs and surges they used to get. My computer parts and PSUs are lasting longer than ever now! I highly recommend a nice UPS system (APCs I hear are good too, but been using CyberPower since my first one which is still kicking solid!) to anyone who has a nice computer they want to protect and last a long time.

Cons: None at all. It is a nice UPS and I have 2 other CyberPower UPS units which are also great units.

Other Thoughts: I am using this system on a Linux Mint build and I have not installed the software for Linux Mint actually has power controls for loss of power. I do use the CyberPower software on my windows system and I like how the interface is simple, easy to use, and can configure what you need on it.
