Not a WD Black
Other Thoughts: Bought to upgrade my PS4's HDD. I didn't get the 2TB one that everyone is using because it's Seagate and I don't want my drive failing in 2 months. I really wanted a WD Black drive but the biggest 2.5" Black drive is 750GB, and I couldn't justify only 750GB. I got one for my PS3 but that was coming from 80GB. I recommend this drive over the others for the PS4. 32MB Cache + 7200RPM = AWESOME. I DO NOT recommend a SSD for the PS4 because the motherboard is only SATA II so you won't benefit from the full speed. The PS4 slim coming out early next year will have a SATA III board and SSD already in it but for now get a spindle drive. This one is PERFECT.
You also need to download the PS4 OS onto a flash drive because the new HDD will be blank so you need to install the operating system for PS4. The file you want is the 758MB one not the 207MB one.
Newegg REALLY needs to stop sending stuff ground when customers pay for 3-day. I know they do it when they assume things will get there in the same amount of time to save money but that's technically stealing. I worked for UPS for 5 years and 3-day select and ground are TWO DIFFERENT service levels. If we pay for 3-day, I want the tracking and label to say 3-day, not ground.
Other than that, I have no issues with Newegg but I do feel that's VERY SHADY. Ammazon's warehouse is about 2 and a half hours from my house, and if I buy something with 2-day shipping, they ship 2-day NOT GROUND. Newegg really needs to stop doing that before they get reported to the BBB.
Pros: On Sale for $139.99 down from $199.99
Cons: Doesn't ride bih on the back of my 2014 ZX6R
Other Thoughts: I've been using a 24" LG HDTV for a while with a max resolution of 1366 X 768....yeah...brutal. Well, the TV's power port started giving me trouble, and unless the plug was plugged in-in a certain position, the TV wouldn't turn on, and if the cord was tapped by a hair, or a slight gust of wind from a fan, the wire would move a hair, and the TV would turn off,
I contacted LG, and I sent out the TV today for repair under warranty because this TV was really purchased for my little cousin's room. She's 3, but since when we got it she was still so little, I started using it for my PC, and PS3.
Well, since I knew I had to send it in, and I would be without a screen for AT LEAST 2 weeks, I decided to jump on NE, and check out what they have. Right away, I saw this TV listed as one of the sales, and after reading the specs, I gathered this was a awesome choice for the money, and the best part is, I won't even need to pay the bill when it comes.
The new monitor is AWESOME. I'm now running 1920 X 1080 via HDMI, and it's amazing. I love computers, and any form of electronics. I just got back into WoW, and this monitor provides a beautiful picture. At first I thought the colors looked washed out, but after some slight adjustments, it looks great.
I also have to mention shipping. I purchased the 3-day shipping but since I live on Long Island, and this happened to ship from the NJ warehouse yesterday, I received it TODAY. That's right, I ordered around 2pm yesterday, and got it around 1pm TODAY. That's why I LOVE living here because all Newegg, and Am_azon orders that ship from NJ, I get in 1 day.
Anyway, I recommend this monitor to ANYONE, but ONLY at the sale price of $139.99. I wouldn't of bought this for $200. Not that it isn't good but I can't justify spending $200 on a monitor but $139.99 for a 24" with the specs this thing has is a str8 up STEAL.
I hope this helps!
Have a great weekend!
