Too Thick

WD WD VelociRaptor WD3000BLHX 300GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive
WD WD VelociRaptor WD3000BLHX 300GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Velociraptors are great drives. Fast, quiet, high MTBF.

Cons: This 2.5" drive is about 15mm thick - thicker than standard 9.5mm. Won't fit most laptop/notebook drive bays because it's too thick.

Overall Review: Wish Newegg had listed the thickness somewhere on the product page. Would have saved shipping costs the inconvenience of a return.

HIS Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Video Card H657HS2G
HIS Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 Video Card H657HS2G

Pros: Good looking heat sink, although it too tall and interferes with placement of cards above it. If the sink was moved slightly to the rear of the card, you could still fit some PCIeX1 cards above. Radeon drivers are buggy and Catalyst Control Center is sub standard.

Cons: Faulty card causes multiple working machines to fail. On the few times it actually allowed machine to boot into Win7, computers ran for less than a minute before crashing.

Overall Review: Radeon drivers are buggy and Catalyst Control Center is sub standard.

Pros: Radeon drivers are only slightly buggy.

Cons: Radeon drivers are buggy. Monitors flash and pop randomly. Card runs 65C just displaying desktop. Fan is noisy at 30%, unreasonably loud at 50%.
