Western Digital Black WD4001FAEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, seeing sustained transfer speeds of 150MB/s to other 7200RPM drives. 5 year warranty (compared to 2 years on the cheaper Seagate). Great black Friday pricing. Lots of storage space.

Cons: The first one I received was dead on arrival. BIOS/Win7 would only see it sometimes, and Disk Management gave errors when trying to initialize it. Had to spend an extra $14 to ship back the drive for RMA. A bit noisy at times, but I am not too concerned about that.

Other Thoughts: I dropped an egg for getting a dud first and having to pay to send it back for replacement. Otherwise, this is a 5 egg product.

GIGABYTE GV-N66TOC-2GD GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast! This card slices through games at 1080p and max details at 60 FPS. Gigabyte's cooling solution works amazingly well. It is nearly silent unless under heavy load. It idles as low at 30C, and I haven't seen it get any hotter than 68C. This is excellent cooling performance considering the stock overclock. I highly recommend this card!

Cons: A bit expensive, but I am not removing an egg since I am completely satisfied with the product. 192-bit is a bit weak on the bandwidth, but it doesn't seem to hamper the card too much.

Other Thoughts: This is my first time not buying an EVGA video card in close to 10 years. I was not impressed with their GTX 660 Ti offerings, and I am glad I gave Gigabyte a shot!

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works great at the advertised speeds. I didn't have to do anything but pop them in, and the system detected the settings correctly. I highly recommend this RAM.

Cons: None.
