This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100 Black
Pros: USB 3 speeds are decent. Quiet.
Cons: I purchased two of these as backup drives around 8 months ago. They've both been running as a backup device on two separate servers at two separate locations. The server backs up around 1.2GB of data once a week, and deletes backups older than 90 days. Both have died this month. One of them just doesnt spin up at all any more. Unplug the power, plug it back in, and it just has a vibration (more than normal) and the server doesnt even detect the drive any more. The second one started the infamous "clicking" noise whenever something is being read or written to the drive. Also took 5 hours to back up 1.2GB of data on it's last run when it usually takes less than 1 hour. I do expect these drives to go bad eventually, but not less than 1 year. The 1TB these drives replaced, which were over 2 years old, were still working 100%. Doubt we will be purchasing any Seagate drives again in the near future.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill FB-02 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with 1x 80mm Fan
Pros: Nice little case. Fits my older ASUS ATX motherboard fine. Not sure about the tech skill of the other comments. Wires are long enough (you have to take the twist tie off first). Motherboard fit just fine without "hammering" the case. Hard drives went in OK, though due to the small size, I had to install the memory after installing the hard drives due to them being in the way. Antec 650W power supply fits just fine. Enough room for the nVidia PCIe video card with room to plug the power in the back.
Cons: They discontinued this case. I came back to buy a couple more.READ FULL REVIEW
