Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Newegg shipping is fast! As usual.

Cons: The initial unit received was not detected by my mobo's BIOS (MSI A78m-E35) and was accompanied by a repetitive clicking sound (the actuator arm flailing about). This situation was made more to my disliking by the fact that I had to pull my CPUs heatsink/fan assembly in order to extract the drive. OK, that's cool. It happens. Newegg RMA to the rescue. Received the replacement drive and...DOA. The first HDDs behavior is replicated with stunning similarity. Come on now! Two in a row!? Fine. Newegg RMA for a refund and I'm going with another manufacturer. Ordered a Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 on Monday (4/7) and it was delivered Tuesday morning (Go Newegg!). I mounted the unit in the top portion of the chassis drive cage this time so it could clear the heatsink/fan if it needed to be extracted at some point. Alright, system power on, slow BIOS POST... hmm, drive not detected. I try a different SATA cable... nope. I try another SATA port that detects my DVD burner... nope. While the machine is on I lean in closer and I can hear the drive emitting a repetitive buzzing sound. You have got to be s*itting me! Third time...unlucky!!? Newegg RMA for a replacement. I'm a masochist that way. Others may have had better luck with WD, but I have become ever more worrisome with them. In the past, I've had two WDs experience sudden death on two separate occasions and I lost some data during one of the events due to my lack of diligence in maintaining a backup. I gotta tell ya, though... Seagate ain't exactly warming the cockles of my heart, just yet. Cross your fingers and say a prayer for me 'cause if drive #4 don't work... I think I'll be making for the deep end... in a hand-basket... on the red-eye... express ticket... one way.

Other Thoughts: Can I just have a drive that works?

SAMSUNG ML-D2850B, D2850B High Yield Toner Cartridge Black

5 out of 5 eggs IT'S TONER 04/11/2012

This review is from: SAMSUNG ML-D2850B, D2850B High Yield Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: Perfectly matched for a Samsung ML-2851ND. Don't need to replace cartridge but ever few months.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried any of the "compatible" cartridges. Gave it a shot once for an decrepit GCC printer and the cartridge leaked all over. A bit skittish on them.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint M7E HM251HI 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This unit was purchased to replace a failing Fujitsu HDD. The faulty drive was a factory component from a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Same general specs, 2.5", 250GB, 5400RPM, 8MB Buffer, SATA 3.0Gb. Replacement Samsung unit installed, Windows 7 restored from DVD, system operation normal, user back up and running. It's a great day in IT when plans work as planned.

Cons: n/a
