Great Green Drive

Western Digital WD Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Western Digital WD Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This drive is fast, and dead silent. SSD + WD Green drive = quiet PC. Easy to install in Win7 x64. Plug it in, format & go. You must know how to take advantage of the drive. 1. AHCI s/b enabled in BIOS. 2. Do Not Quick format the drive. I know it's slow but your patience will be rewarded. 3. Win7 or Vista make it easiest to use. I have Win7 x64 and achieve Sustained write speed of 80mb/s with AHCI enabled over my Gbit network. Only 40mb/s write speed in IDE mode.

Cons: 1. You need to know what you're doing to take full advantage of the drive. 2. Full format these large drives folks.

Overall Review: Many people complain about the high failure rate of the 1 TB+ drives. I have 3 of the WD Green 1 TB drives. I have the 16mb & 32mb cache versions in my WHS & added the 64mb cache (this one) in my main PC. My 16mb version was having issues & was virtually unusable & I was about to RMA...I spent the time to reformat with a full format...that was over a year ago. All 3 WD Green 1 TB drives have been trouble free.

Same for all micro usb

Pros: it's a cable it works. It is essentially the same micro usb cable that all sammy phones use. We have a couple different samsung devices and it works with them all. Good price, good shipping on this item.

Cons: I ordered this and another micro usb cable, and only one was included but the order said both shipped. Others have complained about this seller. I emailed the customer and DJ replied a couple days later and my completed. I am satisfied with my purchase.

Overall Review: I feel spoiled by Newegg's top level of service, so I expect the same from the marketplace sellers!

Pros: it's a cable it works. It is essentially the same micro usb cable that all sammy phones use. We have a couple different samsung devices and it works with them all. Good price, shipping wasn't quite right the first time around, see cons...

Cons: I knocked an egg off because the original order shipping without this cable...even though the shipping details said both shipped. Others have had the same experience with this seller. I emailed the customer and DJ replied a couple days later and completed my order. Minor inconvenience, but overall satisfied with my purchase.

Easy Setup

Pros: Price was right. Replaced old Leadtek 462 board that had bulging capacitors. This board was easy to setup. Had rig setup & xp installed in 45 min. Clean install, no av, etc & boot to xp in under 30 seconds.

Cons: Old school BIOS. No auto detect for cpu, had to set manually. Not really a con, but if you're new to building it might not be obvious. Many of the other settings are history and not in newer bios.

Overall Review: I worried at first about negative reviews, but glad I purchased to resurrect the myriad socket A parts I had laying around. I would buy this mobo again. Just bought the board, so only a few nights of burn in, but so far so good.

Comments: Fast memory. Works with my Canon Powershot S2 IS. Works with my 'Generic' 7-in-1 card reader, but is slow. Works with Sandisk SD+ card reader, and is noticably faster (and smaller) than with generic 7-in-1. Corsair Rocks, & Newegg rocks.

BEWARE: only received 1 item

Ordered this and another cable on same order, this one was received and works just fine, but other cable was not in the package even though the packaging said it was included. Other reviews warn of this...should have heeded the warning. If I do not receive the second cable I will NEVER order from 'other' newegg marketplace sellers again. Will update review if 2nd item is received.
