Really Great Drive!
Pros: This drive comes right out of the box ready to go. Being a retail version this drive comes with everything. The 300 mb speed is nice but wasn't a big factor. The drive is very quiet. It has good seek times and loads things pretty quickly for a 7200 RPM drive. BUY THIS DRIVE! IF IT'S BIG ENOUGH FOR YOU, YOU CAN'T BEAT THE PRICE! Newegg once again got it here quick and with free shipping!
Cons: I wasn't big on the enclosed WD SATA cable. Not a big deal though.
Overall Review: I purchased this HD for my father for x-mas and it is a big improvement. He had me build him a new system a while back but kept his old drive. It helps a great deal. As long as you have your SATA drivers ready and a floppy drive or integrated XP CD you will have no problems.
4 Months Old
Pros: Good Sturdy case. Nice layout with fans. Up to five which I have! Looks cool too!!
Cons: Well the first review I wrote 4 months ago when the case was brand new had no cons. Well 4 months later the LCD on the front for case temp has crapped out! It still vagily lights up but you can only see the temp at an almost 90 degree angle and it reads 00.7f. So if the temp display in this case is the deciding factor for this case reconsider! It was not for me as I am going to see if it can be fixed and if not Oh Well I'll put something better there!
Overall Review: It is a very sturdy case for the money.
Good Solid Case
Pros: Good Looking Finish, nice LCD, strudy, and you can fit 5 fans!
Cons: Well the expansion slot covers are very difficult to remove. DO SO BEFORE INSTALLING MOBO!!! other than that its a great case.
Overall Review: I did not use this cases PSU. It got horrible reviews and I had a nice one so I can't rate that. Also didn't use the CD-Rom drive covers I have black drive and they look fine.
Pros: Fast and has great overclockability. I have pushed it to 3.7 on the stock cooler and it runs at around 50 c and 122 f (under load) not to shabby! Runs alittle cooler at stock speeds (45-47 c) but not that much! I keep it @ 3.5 amd it is stable as anything and will play or do anything I throw at it!
Overall Review: Uhhhhh.........Grasshoppers
