Western Digital Scorpio Black WD7500BPKT 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast - up to 90MB/s on my 2009 MBP

Cons: Windows 7 and XP require some sort of patch to use this thing - links are on the actual drive.

my 2009 MBP required a 1.6 boot room downgrade to work properly. before that, I got a ton of beachballs - very slow

seens a bit power hungry. huh, oh well.

Other Thoughts: My experience with Apple support left much to be desired. If you have a 2009 pro, skip them and download the EFI update yourself. It's fairly painless and quick. I went to an apple store, described the problem and the preferred solution, and they spent 40 minutes verifying that I wasn't a muppet, then said that they officially couldn't do anything.

4 out of 5 eggs good features, ify driver support 01/28/2011

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-770T-USB3 AM3 AMD 770 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Features, 16G ram capacity with cheap dimms

Cons: driver support for network sucks on win7 64. I solved my problems by getting an intel pic-e card and disabling the onboard card.

Antec SONATA IV Black 0.8 mm SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 620W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs nice, but not perfect 01/18/2011

This review is from: Antec SONATA IV Black 0.8 mm SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 620W Power Supply

Pros: It's quiet and well made; the build quality is on par with the Sonata 3, which I also own. I really like it, but this review will mostly be nitpicks - don't get the wrong idea.

It does fit a GTX 570, but space is somewhat tight - careful where you route the cables!

Cons: The 2.5" HDD mount doesn't leave enough space for connectors. I solved this problem with a crescent wrench (bend the folder metal in front of the HDD so it comes out straight).

The power connectors aren't modular, and there isn't a sata power adapter for the top bay - there should be, or at least a converter included so I can use the new SATA DVD drives.

The mounting screws are hard to get to for the 2.5" drive - be careful with that. Not a complaint, just a warning.

Other Thoughts: I miss the side panels from the Sonata 3 - not a fan of thumbscrews.

using a full length card creates a dead air space under (lower than) the card, so don't put anything there that needs ventilation; not an issue for me, but maybe for others. This has the effect of focusing airflow across the CPU and mobo components, so net win, I guess. Still, not sure if the lower drive cage will be happy.
