Pros: None, DOB, Dead Out of The Box
Cons: Dead out of the box, was building a new rig and I preorder parts. When I went to use this drive it was dead, tried other drives and they worked. RMA the drive back to Seagate. They sent me a Re-certified drive (USED), not only that but it was not even the same interface. ST31000528AS SATA 3.0 GB. E-Mails have not been answered, if I wanted a used drive I would have bought a used drive.
Overall Review: I would not buy this drive, if you do beware that RMA from Seagate can give you an inferior drive.
Pros: Look great, good product, I have had great experience using other CORSAIR products.
Cons: Backing Plate did not fit the motherboard. Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Z590. WARNING; the backing plate will not fit the mother board, you will not be able to anchor the cooler to the CPU. When you return it you will charged a 15% restocking fee. Quote AW: "We do not guarantee the compatibility for the items you purchased."
Overall Review: I would only recommend this, if it fits your motherboard.
Problem with Card Seating
Pros: Over all the card had features that I wanted. The power cable was a nice inclusion.
Cons: The card could not be anchored on the chassis. If the card was fully seated the angle to the chassis was at about 80 degrees. So the expansion slot is taking the weight of the card and cables.
Overall Review: I would not recommend this card. I would also not buy this card again. This a manufacturer defect.
