5 out of 5 eggs Best IDE hard drives ever created (not the Blue as referenced incorrectly, but the "Special Edition") 06/02/2016

This review is from: Western Digital Blue WD800JB 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: If you need to replace a hard drive in a system that requires an IDE, this the choice. It is relatively fast, quiet, and ultra reliable.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: In the day, I installed probably 100-150 of these drives into client's computers, with only 2 coming back (and both due to power-spikes). I have a HTPC computer in which I run four of these currently. Even in today's environment, for that application, they are plenty fast.

1 out of 5 eggs Nothing but junk, unfortunately 05/30/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 2.0) AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: There are none - NONE at all.

Cons: Item did not work, post, or do anything. It was bought as a replacement for a client's computer. The board fried the CPU on initial boot-up. I don't know what is happening with Gigabyte, but their quality control seems to have severely slipped.

Other Thoughts: I have been building microcomputers since 1988, and in these 28 years, this has been the worst board (worst than PC-chips boards that never worked, but also never ruined the CPU) I have ever had the misfortune of using.
