WL 2 Terabyte (2TB) 64MB Cache 7200RPM SATA2 (3.0Gb/s) 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: There was no mystery when I got my drive. Mine was a new Western Digital Enterprise class (Black) built in late 2010.

Cons: Nothing to speak of.

Other Thoughts: It came shipped in bubble wrap inside a box which was inside a bubble wrapped soft package. Very nice.

Don't hesitate to purchase due to the "white Label". I know I will be buying more of these old enterprise class drives at fire sale prices. Everyone seems to be getting Western Digital or Seagates in this crapshoot. At this price, it's hard to beat.

5 out of 5 eggs The 9 series GTX is fantastic! 10/10/2014

This review is from: EVGA 04G-2972-KR GeForce GTX 970 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 ACX 2.0 PCI Express 3.0

Pros: Runs games at or near the same level as a GTX 780Ti for less than half the recent price of that Ti. This CPU coupled with a stock i7 4790K runs the newest games at their max settings at a consistent 80-120 FPS @1080p (lows never dip below 60) This includes Shadow of Mordor, Thief, Tomb Raider, Arkham games, Battlefield 4, Alien Isolation and more. It rips through everything with ease.

Power usage (or lack there of) is amazing for such a powerful card. Tempuratures are better than my old GTX 760. The 970 literally doubled my framerates in nearly everything and the 760 wasn't bad at all.

The card is nice looking. It's fairly understated. It's also nice and slim so running 2,3 or 4 of these would be a breeze.

Cons: Coil Whine. During certain benches (basically at extreme high framerates), I get significant coil whine. The ancient graphics card testing "ATI Tool" exposes it best. It happens in real world gaming but it's quiet enough that I'm not gonna sweat it much.

Other Thoughts: My card isn't the greatest over-clocker (of 970s ,that is) . I'm running mine at a modest +202 (1352) and +100 on the memory. Fantastic in terms of GPUs but nothing special for these 970s.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series SV300S37A/120G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Really fast. Not the fastest, but great speed for this price range. I have 3 of these. 2 120GB and 1 240GB. Each system I installed them to saw dramatic speed increases. All load into windows in under 10 seconds (my main rig is 7-8 seconds). Programs run much snappier. Any games you choose to install on it will load fast too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: An SSD upgrade at these prices is a no brainer.
