No Problems

Nippon Labs Black 1M (3.28 ft.) eSATA Cable 3.0Gbps Male to Male I Shape Cable for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model ESATA-1M-BK

Pros: plenty long works perfectly esata flies!!!

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Im using this with a thermaltake max 4 external HDD with a 500Gb western digital drive inside and it's amazing! file transfers that took nearly 20 mins by USB take a matter of only a minute or so by esata. also something that took me a minute figure out is that you have to have the external HDD turned on before you turn on your pc or it wont be detected, just a helpful hint for first time esata users like me.

Meh

Linksys WRT120N Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 150Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Looks nice When it works it works well easy set up

Cons: see other thoughts

Overall Review: After a little less than a year it stopped assigning IP addresses automatically, so I would have to reset it constantly. I updated the firmware and that helped a little, then I just went into the settings and manually assigned IP addresses to specific MAC addresses. since then it rarely requires resetting

Couldn't be happier

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750 W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Quiet Modular Efficient Lots of included goodies more than enough power for my rig

Cons: After 2 years I still dont have one bad thing to say

Overall Review: With the new push towards more efficient components, unless you have a monster rig, something like this should suit any enthusiast perfectly. ASRock P43Twins1600 Core 2 Quad Q6600 (OCd to 3.0 GHz) Thermaltake SpinQ VT 4GB GSkill 1333 MSI GTX660 Corsair HX750 Samsung 840 120GB SSD Seagate 1TB HDD WD 500 GB Green HDD WD 320 GB Blue HDD

Not bad but not great

Pros: Large capacity 64mb cache Second one seems to be ok

Cons: First one was DOA

Overall Review: I am a long time user of another major hdd manufacturer's products and this was my first experience with Seagate I decided to go with this one because I needed more space and this one was a little cheaper. As stated above, the first one arrived DOA and I have never had any of my other drives die on me. It seems to be ok now but I think I'll stick with the other guy for future purchases.

I will be buying Samsung SSD's again!

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC064D/AM 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)  Desktop Upgrade Kit

Pros: Extremely fast boot up times and long lasting reliability.

Cons: None!

Overall Review: I originally had this set up as an ssd cache but since I have an older motherboard it didnt work that well, so I did a fresh install of windows and my boot times have gone from ~1:45 (HDD alone) to ~:40 from the ssd. I should note that this is a SATA III drive and I have a SATA II motherboard so there is some performance limitation there.
