Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable so far

Cons: Pity the warranty isn't five years as all Seagate drives used to have

Other Thoughts: These drives are what will be found in the STBD2000101 "retail" packages, and that is the form in which I got all but one of my ten drives of this model (so it is strange that the "retail-packaged" ones are getting better feedback scores here).The remaining one was received from Seagate as a warranty replacement for a failed ST32000641AS and had (still has) the remainder of the original drive's 5-year warranty.

5 out of 5 eggs Six out of six still going strong after six months 12/20/2015

This review is from: Seagate STBD6000100 6TB 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit

Pros: Huge capacity. No problems in my FreeNAS machine: not a single SMART error.

Cons: The only con I can think of is the "missing" center screw hole, but that is inevitable given the number of platters packed into this small space. I can drill extra holes in my drive trays to match the new arrangement of screw holes in the drives.

I wish I'd bought more at the time.

Other Thoughts: The drives themselves are labeled as ST6000DX000, whereas the 6TB "bare" drives are ST6000DM001. Are they actually different? I have no idea: I haven't found any information for the ST6000DX000 on the Seagate Web site.

I bought these when they were ridiculously cheap for four hours on the Web site of one of the big B&M store chains. Keep a lookout, and maybe they'll repeat it.

SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD10B Aluminum HTPC for ATX / Micro-ATX / SSI-CEB Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks good among my other sound/video equipment. Plenty of room to work in. Fans are quiet.

Cons: Even if not locked, it's not so easy to open the front: when I read that it had a magnetic catch, I assumed that it was one of those push-to-close, push-again-to-open catches, but it isn't: I either have to use the key as a handle or get a finger nail between the edge of the cover and the body of the case.

The LEDs are a little too bright

Other Thoughts: I wonder why they chose to have the mounted-vertically-on-edge drive oriented so that the electronics are facing inward rather than the cover.
