Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs As years have gone on - WD becoming more unreliable 07/22/2013

This review is from: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 50% chance works as should

Cons: I've used many of these Western Digital Blue drives over the last few years, at first I thought bad luck, but after now about 20 builds with these drives - I've had a few DOA, and most recently the problem others have mentioned which is the drive starts to become flaky showing signs of a corrupted OS. frusterating to diagnose. It began with complaints from a client of his new machine being very slow. Eventually the machine would quit booting to windows. Reformatting doesn't solve the issue.

Other Thoughts: The 'big two' WD and Seagate are becoming more unreliable, I'll be trying out some of the 'other brands' in the near future after years of loyalty.

SeaSonic SS-300ET Bronze 300W ATX12V V2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great psu for lower end build 05/24/2013

This review is from: SeaSonic SS-300ET Bronze 300W ATX12V V2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Spending a bit more for a higher end - but low wattage Seasonic PSU like this reflects someone who actually knows what they are doing.
Seasonic imo consistently has the best build quality. The metal's are heavy, the fan looks sturdy and performs well and is quiet. I've never had a seasonic psu die on me. Heavy metals = durable capacitors. (yrs exp. as corporate system builder fyi)
300watts is enough for a rig that's used for basic work and office tasks.

Cons: You can't power any gaming GPU or 6-core i7 with this. (Obviously, and you also didn't spend $100+)
Visually it 'looks' the same as $20 psu's

Other Thoughts: The benefit of a good psu is peace of mind.... even if it looks the same as a cheaper psu
