This review is from: WD Se WD4000F9YZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Datacenter Capacity HDD
Pros: High density
Performance (Doesn't matter much for my use)
Cons: Cost vs Red
Not quite as nice as the WD RE4's that we use at work but more reasonably priced
Other Thoughts: I have 10 of these in RaidZ2 on FreeBSD 9.2 (as of writing) connected through 3x "LSI 9211-8I" in a Norco 4220.
Xeon E3-1275 v2
32GB of Crucial ECC
2x 128GB Samsung 840 Pro's for L2ARC, ZIL, root and swap
3x Noctua 120mm fans on the 10 drives and about 140~160 watts of power used at the wall at full load.
cron bi-monthly zpool scrubs with 0 errors so far.
I would not have purchased this many if ZFS was a little more flexible in upgrading without destroying pools. But oh well I have reliable storage for friends and family for the better part of the next decade.
Pros: Fast, quiet and efficient. Everything I want from a GPU.
Cons: Expensive... but ITX requires ONE fast card no multicard SLI here.
Other Thoughts: Purchased this to go in my new LAN box...
GPU-Z reports 73.5% ASIC quality and it overclocks like a dream.
I purchased this as soon as they because available on Nov 7th but it wasn't from newegg... I love newegg but it was out of stock so...
Pros: Works perfectly.
Other Thoughts: Using with Apple 30" Cinema Displays attached to Lenovo T4(1,2,3)0 docks. Using the apple mini display port to Dual link DVI adapters that we have laying around from all the Apple users that have replaced their 30" with the new Thunderbolt 27".READ FULL REVIEW
