Pros: I don't have this specific 3TB drive but I have 2 WD20 EZRX and 2 1TB versions of these Green drives. The oldest 1TB are over 5 years old and still running fine, and the newer 2 years old WD20s are also running without any issues.
I never writes reviews and this is only a comment that you can't trust evaluation written by disgruntled customers. Every make of hard drive can have a lemon, but in my experience WD drives and in particular these variable speed Green drives are very good quality. When reading complaints by people with "high tech knowledge" reporting slow speeds you should keep in mind that ANY modern drive have higher physical transfer rates than USB 3 and even SATA III protocols. The bottle neck is always the hard drive connection protocols and not the drive itself. Only some high performance SSD drives (my Samsung 830 Pro 256GB comes close) have high enough electrical specs to fully utilize the SATA 6GB or USB 3 5GB max. transfer speeds.
Cons: I don't know of any cons.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake A2358 Dr. Power Tester
Pros: If you just need a reality check this tester can detect a badly failed P.S. But don't try to use it for anything else! In retrospect I should have purchased one of the slightly more expensive models. One that has digital displays.
Cons: Connectors are very hard to work with. I can't connect the SATA and the 4pin Molex connectors at the same time.
Other Thoughts: Oh well, live and learn.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: None yet.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: Just a comment about rockfarmer's review. Need "at least a19" depth with no vertical ledges or other obstructions between the Sata 6 connectors and the 3.5" bays"?
The board is only 9.6" wide! You recommend almost 10 inch clearance to insert SATA cables!? My whole case is is (only) 19" deep! I don't have the board yet and browsing here only to educate myself about potential issues. But how much useful information can I get from the reviews here?
