Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: none

Window is scratched, power button does not work, there are no screws or hardware included

Other Thoughts: This is my last Corsair product. I do not have time for this

Rosewill RDCR-11004 - Data Hub for 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I wish I could think of one

Cons: Bad from day one, just an awful poorly designed product
Causes system instability with its use
I thought my system board was defective because of this item

Other Thoughts: USB 2.0 and SD cards would cause system freezing when used.
Other times my system would become sluggish until I finally replaced this horrible product. I had to go through Rosewill to send it back. I will never order another one. There are just too many people with these and issues. No more Rosewill bay products for me. I am done. These issues should have been caught and never made it to the consumer.

Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Horrible Drive!!!! 04/25/2015

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB5000100

Pros: None really

Cons: Severe read/write lag
This drive makes whatever machines they are connected to slow and laggy. The machine with one of these connected acts like there is an rogue CPU process run amuck consuming 100% CPU cycles on that core. There is a 2 second lag writing and reading data to these drives. I say "THESE" because I purchased a pair of them.

Other Thoughts: I have 30 years I.T. experience, own my own service and support company and I have NEVER seen a drive behave like these. I have read that these are mainly good for offline backup and not much else. They use shingled magnetic recording tech. This may in fact be the source of the lag. I have one each of the pair connected to two different Xeon E3 core Win 2012R2 servers. These drives behave the same when connected to Z97 and X99 workstations as well. They will sit on my shelf until maybe I put the bare drives in an offline Windows Server 2012r2 storage pool or something that does not need to be accessed by users. I am so very disappointed with these drives. I replaced both of these with a 5TB HGST and a 5TB WD Red NAS drive. Both of those drive perform perfectly. Seagate just cannot seem to get much right lately.
