TOSHIBA PH3200U-1I72 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked fine when it worked.

Cons: Drive lost its partition after 7 months. I managed to recover the partition with TestDisk.

Other Thoughts: When I punched in the serial number on the Toshiba hdd rma website, it tells me that my warranty expires next year but on the box it says there is a 3-year warranty.

I'm going back with WD Blacks, 5 year warranty and none of this runaround. I've had WD Blacks that were still ticking at 6+ years of power on hours and my only reason for replacing them was that I needed more space. This Toshiba drive can't even give me 7 months and the warranty time is questionable. Is it 1 year according to the website, or 3 years as indicated on the box.

5 out of 5 eggs The MX518 Successor 03/23/2016

This review is from: Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Laser Gaming Mouse - White

Pros: 23g of weights if you want a heavier mouse. I've never found these to be useful.
Sniper button: I do not play many FPS anymore, but I decided to load up Battlefield and give it a while, it is nice. I would normally just lower my dpi on my mouse with a few clicks, now I only need one click!
5 DPI settings.
Sniper button is in a perfect spot. I don't play sniper class much, so this could also be used to toggle a very high dpi if you are in a vehicle and want some on-the-fly speed.
Corsair Utility Engine is very easy to use and set the DPI, colors, macros, and more.

Cons: The two side buttons are too thin, and the second button ends up getting pressed in much easier than the first button.
Mouse is a tad on the heavy side at 117g, and this is with all of the weights taken out. I definitely notice more strain on my pinky when I constantly re-position the mouse since the right side of the mouse is much heavier than the left side.
No container or foam for unused weights.

Other Thoughts: My MX518 is going on 10 years old (I purchased it from NewEgg back in 2006). I play a wide range of games that involve intense clicking, and the MX518 has never let me down. I tried the G500 and G602 mice with more buttons and options, but I really hate the oversized mouse wheel on the G500, and the side buttons were painful on the G602. I am letting you know this in case you disliked those mice in the past for the same reasons.

The Corsair M65 definitely seems to be well built and it feels solid. I can only hope that I would get 10 years of life out of this mouse. The oversized mouse-wheel is not as bad as the other mice I have tried with regards to the wheel scrolling when I want to middle click. I would still prefer the mouse-wheel to be receded and possibly less force required for a middle click to register. The Corsair M65 RGB does seem to be a nice upgrade from the Mx518 for the most part, if the side buttons were a lot larger and the scroll wheel was not oversized, then this very well could have been a perfect mouse.

CORSAIR RMx Series RM850X 850W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Fully modular. I never cared about the 24-pin being modular, but I suppose it is helpful to some people.

Silent operation with low and medium loads. Noise isn't an issue since I have a silent pc case to begin with, but I'm sure this is a pro for the people who don't.

7 year warranty. This right here should be really pulling you in. This is the Florine to your Potassium. You want to make this ionic bond now.

Corsair renowned support. I will say that I never personally have had an issue with any Corsair item, but I have read plenty positive feedback on Corsair's support. I always look into the support of a company before making a purchase because what is the point of a warranty or support of the company is no good in providing either.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Power supplies are the most important component of any computer build. I have learned a long time ago that not all psu watt rating are equal. High quality power supplies might seem expensive, but if you ever had one fail and take out your mainboard or gpu, then you know what expensive is. The Corsair RM850x is everything anyone would expect from a high quality, enthusiast class, power supply. Solid Japanese capacitors are the gold standard, I've had a cheap power supply with a capacitor popping and taking out my mainboard. So, I learned my lesson real early on. My go to recommendations are normally Antec and Corsair when I do custom builds for people, and I have to stress to them at how important a quality power supply really is. Your computer is not going to do anything spectacular when the power supply releases the magic smoke. The very long warranties that Corsair offers really makes it hard to justify not buying their product either way. It becomes a point where you cannot afford not to buy it. 7 years -- can you think which component in your computer right now was the same from 7 years ago?
