HGST H3IK40003272SW (0S03363) 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -> Large Size
-> Hitachi Brand
-> mostly good reviews...

Cons: -> Direct experience on High death rate
-> This will be my 3rd drive in less than 9 months!!
-> Last replacement lasted barely 6 months!
-> People are not exaggerating about these drives.
-> I have purchased Hitachi drives for 15+ years and I have NEVER NEVER had a drive with this sort of reliability issue. The drive works for a while, then refuses to spin up. This 2nd drive is now presenting the SAME symptom as the first time it was replaced.
-> Googling around show this to be a common and widespread issue.
-> In my case, this drive is barely being used, just a few files here and there and it's staying cool and not overheating... so I'm not sure what the problem is. I have another 2TB Hitachi right beside this one and it's been running like a champ for several years with no so much as a whimper...
-> If Hitachi ships me another bum drive that fails again before it should, then this will be my last 4 TB Hitachi drive and possibly last Hitachi drive ever.
-> With all the problems being reported, Hitachi should offer its customers an option of refund or or ship a newer model or something which works.

Other Thoughts: -> Anyone considering this drive, should think twice if they value their data, their time, costs and the hassles with shipping these back to Hitachi for replacement again and again.

5 out of 5 eggs Works fine for our use... 03/29/2010

This review is from: SABRENT Model SBT-USC6M 6 ft. USB to Serial (9-pin) DB-9 RS-232 Adapter Cable

Pros: This unit seems to be reliable, well built and it works great for Windows XP and setting up out computer hardware which requires a serial port for initial IP setup.

Cons: non

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 996619
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: > The two of four DIMMs I was able to install did stay really cool - no heat issues observed.
> Mushkin's return policy will to allow me to exchange the EVC modules for their thinner modules - so I'm not out the $ for DIMMs.
> Mushkin support was very responsive and issued a RMA # promptly --> earning them the high rating

Cons: > These Mushkin EVC DIMMS are "thicker" than DIMMs with standard heat-spreaders. If your MB sockets are side by side, with no spacing between them, these will likely not fit in such an arrangement. If you are only using a couple across banks, you may be OK - check your MB carefully.

Other Thoughts: > Newegg site should list the EVC "thickness" as a flag / concern / warning for buyers and then allow for returns / exchanges under those conditions.
