Most Favorable Review

Same great performance, now 4x the size

WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4005FZBX
WD Black 4TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD4005FZBX

Pros: -Blazing fast for a mechanical drive -Quiet, I don't even know it's there -Lots of elbow room

Cons: -Was not free -Had to wait 4 whole days after ordering it for it to arrive -Still not infinite storage -These are all sarcasm, if you couldn't tell

Overall Review: I bought this to replace a 7 year old 1 GB model, which served me well without so much as a hiccup. After mirroring that drive to this one, I booted for the first time, and was blown away by how fast it booted. My boot time was easily cut in half, and the performance gains did not end there. *Everything* runs much faster on this drive compared to Old Faithful. If this one lasts as long, I know what I'll probably buy to replace it.

Works as expected

Pros: -Runs at rated speed with my Ryzen CPU -No RGB

Cons: -None

Overall Review: Bought to double the RAM in my system from 16 to 32GB. This set matches the set already in the system. It works as advertised, and makes working from home easier.

My review

HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5" 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Retail Packaging

Pros: Fast, cheap, reliable storage.

Cons: It doesn't make me breakfast in the morning...

Overall Review: I've owned many Hitachi drives over the years, and they are the most reliable storage drives on the market, in my opinion. I've had problems in the past with them as system drives, but this was purchased as storage, so I'm not concerned about that.

GIGABYTE Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card GV-R929WF3-4GD
GIGABYTE Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card GV-R929WF3-4GD

Pros: Fast, quiet while not doing anything demanding

Cons: This card is huge, but it fit in my case, so I'm not taking anything off for that. Just make sure your case can handle it before buying.

Overall Review: I've thrown a few games at it so far, and plan to really put it through its paces this weekend, but so far it has run everything I've thrown at it like butter.

Pros: This mouse is exactly as advertised. Smooth, comfortable, tons of features

Cons: None yet

Overall Review: I upgraded from the Logitech G500, which worked great for me for 4+ years. So far, this mouse seems like a definite step up.

Fast shipping

I ordered an electric blower, for blowing dust out of my computer. Shipment arrived 2 days ahead of the estimate. The blower works as advertised. Completely satisfied with my experience.

Great drive, great deal

I ordered an OEM HGST He8 drive from Server Part Deals. They had the best deal on that drive, and had many great reviews. Drive arrived a day earlier than the ETA, was packaged well, and works fantastic. I will definitely add them to my list of retailers to check next time I need a drive.
