WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Unfortunately none, maybe the 5 year replacement warranty from WD with a refurbished drive?

Cons: WD1003FZEX seem to have a high failure rate right out of the box. This is the second WD black drive 1Tb that I have received in 2014 that was dead on arrival. This one did not pass WD WinDlg_v1_27 drive test "drive not ready" error and crashed my Windows 7 system when a format was attempted. WD will replace with a refurbished unit which I am not sure of the quality there either.

Other Thoughts: I hope these manufacturing quality issues would be resolved or at least test the drive before shipment from WD. I would not even think of purchasing anything larger than 1 Tb for fear of data loss.

Actiontec GEU003AD3B-01 Ethernet DSL Modem with Routing Capabilities 24 Mbps 1 x RJ-45 10/100Base-TX LAN
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It is a very nice DSL modem/router with a great GUI interface and does everything it is supposed to do well. If only it lasted longer.

Cons: lasted about 11 months. unit no longer senses ethernet link from computer or switch. Can't access GUI interface or manually reset the device.

Other Thoughts: It appears to still work and boot up as all the LED's flash and come on as they should but the ethernet port will not work. Suspect poor soldering on the BGA chip inside. Replaced with TP-Link 8616 modem only, will see how that goes.
