This review is from: WD Red WD7500BFCX 750GB IntelliPower SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive -Bulk
Pros: The drive is quiet, small, had it running in my system as a multimedia drive and ran everything smoothly. I've been running this drive since January 20th 2014 in my Hackintosh running 10.9.2. This drive just stores my movies and music.
Cons: The drive Apparently isn't being recognized on either my Macos 10.9.2 system or my windows 7 computer. When I start either computer up it gives me an error message.
Other Thoughts: After Some trouble shooting I ran disk verify on osx and found the main boot region was corrupted and I repaired it and now all is recognized and running like new with no data corruption or loss.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The case was very easy to open up with a jewelers flat head screw driver. The 2.5 inch WD hdd I put in the case slid in with no hassle and didn't slide around at all.I made sure to put the plastic film on the circuit board side of the hdd. Plugged the unit in with a secondary usb cable i had from seagate and it connected with no problem and transferred files at about 110MB/s over USB 3.0.
Cons: The USB 3.0 cord that shipped with the unit is apparently bad, as it would drop the transfer speed to null for a couple seconds and then speed up. Then all of a sudden my Mac said the drive was disconnected incorrectly. Tried to plug it back in and the same thing happened. RESOLVED ISSUE by using a different usb cable.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to purchase another Usb 3.0 Male A to Male B for this unit because the shipping usb cable is so short and cheaply made.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It ran an AMD 965 phenom ii black edition, gtx 460, for 2 years without incident.
Cons: Died after 2 years of constant use. Powered the machine on one day and it didn't turn on fans or anything. The only sound comming from the PSU was that of a high pitch whistle. Looked inside the PSU cage and 2 of the capacitors were bulged and leaking.READ FULL REVIEW
