Hitachi (0F10942) 2TB 32MB Cache 7200RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: These are good quality drives, perfect for a system that employs even SATA3 for an interface (as in most cases you can't hope to satisfy a 3 Gib/s SATA2 bus with mere spinning rust much less a 6 Gib/s). I ordered three. They are in service now, and running like champions.

Cons: These ARE refurbished drives. Of course they are, they're SATA2. However, they have obviously been checked for any physical problems based on what little SMART data I see on them. I also notice that the majority their SMART data has been wiped. I don't really like this, as it obfuscates the history of the drive. It's obvious that the drives have ~21000 running hours based on the last time a long test was run (a value which was not cleared, thankfully) but I find it to be a bit sneaky, as this is something one would do to make it seem like a new purchase rather than a refurb. This hypothesis would seem to be backed by the total lack of anything stating these drives are refurbs with some significant hours on them. (More than two YEARS)

If they were sold at a new price, I would be mad about that. Since it's a refurb price (though admittedly a high one), I don't really care. Just don't go thinking these are new and expect five years out of them. Bank on more like a year (which is when the warranty runs out anyways), or maybe two.

Other Thoughts: A one year warranty on refurbished drives is pretty swell.

MSI 760GM-P34 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Really good motherboard. Solid. 02/03/2014

This review is from: MSI 760GM-P34 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The thing is rock solid. An armada of PCIeX16, x1 slots and SATA3 connections. Support for huge memory (I'm using 16gb now, a paltry sum for this board). Support for massive interconnect bandwidth. It is the backbone of my primary Xen server. The thing is SUPER reliable.

Cons: None so far.

Canon CanoScan LiDE110 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Works great once configured. Lightweight lid. 02/03/2014

This review is from: Canon CanoScan LiDE110 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner

Pros: Takes good scans, even for photos and artwork. Reasonable speed. Great quality for the money.

Cons: Lid doesn't want to close all the way. It's very light, and does not apply any pressure to the object being scanned, so it sometimes makes gradients if you don't do something about it. Mine is weiged down by a bible. First time I've found one of those useful.

Other Thoughts: If using Linux, you'll have to play with the brightness and contrast in something other than Simple Scan (SS won't change those settings). Scans will come out muddy and dark. Use xsane or something more powerful like that to compensate for this. Just save your settings for that device and you're done. I guess it's not really that different in work required than dodging Windows junk software in the install. Pick your poison.
