Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Don't plan to have them work at all beyond the 2 year warranty 04/28/2015

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Does the job, installation & usage indistinguishable from any other drive.

Cons: They don't last long. Bought a pair with a two year warranty. One failed at 22 months (got a refurbished replacement). The second failed at 24 1/2 months, and the refurbished one failed after 4 months. And it took 4 weeks to get the refurbished unit because they were 'out of stock'. So the average life was 25 months, starting to feel disposable. And they always fail suddenly, without warning.

Other Thoughts: Seagate seems to have perfected the life of their drives to be almost exactly 2 years. They used to last 5 years+, now barely make it through the warranty.

I am going to pay a bit more and go with a brand that tests have shown to last longer. Seagate is the cheapest, but there is a reason for that.

Logitech M500 Gray Tilt Wheel USB Corded Laser 1000 dpi Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Worse tracking than my previous logitech mouse 02/27/2013

This review is from: Logitech M500 Gray Tilt Wheel USB Corded Laser 1000 dpi Mouse

Pros: Well, it was a nice looking box

Cons: Harder to position accurately than my previous mouse (also a corded Logitech mouse)

Support is just awful, starting with a "No documentation available" on the web site support page, to the typical know-nothing tech support reps.

And if you use the mouse left handed, the backward/forward buttons are a liability because they get pushed inadvertently with your left hand and you will end up disabling them.

Vantec NexStar 3 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works like its supposed to, inserted drive, plugged drive in, and that was it.

Cons: None that I have noted

Other Thoughts: This replaced an earlier Vantec drive enclosure that I had for 3 years, worked flawlessly the entire time. Only reason to replace it was that it only went up to 1TB drives, and I now needed to go beyond that.
