Pros: ... they weren't _all_ DOA.
Cons: I bought nine of these drives for a build for my lab. Of them, one had death clicks immediately, and another SIX of them failed their smart checks right out of the box. Two seem to be working for the moment.
Other Thoughts: Western Digital Blacks are pretty much the new Hitachi Deathstars.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel RTS2011AC LGA 2011 CPU Cooler
Pros: If you're looking for something reasonably priced and reliable this is a good option.
Cons: Louder than I'd prefer, but then again, I guess I had that coming when I went with a 2011 instead of a newer Ivy Bridge.
Other Thoughts: Glows blue... I'd have rather spent a dollar less on it and not have it glow.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These are solidly built units! I can't speak to longevity, but I can tell you that working with them has a very similar feel to working with Canon L lenses.
Cons: The packaging was a bit much, a secondary inner box that is labeled "Power Cord" in huge gray letters really isn't necessary or helpful; power cords need no introduction.
Other Thoughts: I ended up only buying 4 of these because Newegg ran out of stock :-( . Let's hope the replacements for the rest are as good as these!READ FULL REVIEW
