4Tb drive is working.4/30/2020 2:00:59 AM

Pros: Seems fast. It is quiet.

Cons: Manufacture date of 2014, almost 6 years old to the day. Packaging was terrible; bare drive wrapped in sheet of bubble wrap in what should shipping box which in in turn was inside an envelop. All the corners were rounded and the envelop folded over it. So I am sure USPS was very gentle with it. Not even marked handle with care. I have no faith in this drive surviving a full life in my system. I saw comments about 5 yr warranty, only thing listed is a 1 yr limited warranty. Took one egg off for packaging.

Overall Review: I have always preferred WD drive but this "Re" drive is making me re-think the Seagate drives. After fighting the drive to get it formatted to the full 4Tb (finally cloned a low data 4Tb drive that was functional win my Win 10 systems) did I find a single instruction sheet telling me to go GPT. (I'll take the blame for this one my self.

Over 4 years of service1/12/2016 1:33:32 PM

Pros: Never an issue, constant running...literally 24/7 for the whole time.

Cons: None...wish drive drive would let you know when it's time is near.

Overall Review: Only hint of a problem was after a re-boot, drive was not there. Wasn't hot, is not detected in anything, will not spin just died a quiet death. Wish I had backed up sooner, lost 5 months of pictures & video and what not. Also the time to get up and running again. C'est la vie....ordering another.

I love it!11/22/2014 11:14:31 AM

Pros: I've had 1 or 2 drives running in it for 11 months now. Main use is for movies and music on my home network. But it does get the occasional move to different computer for backup and/or clean-up. I forget its not a system drive until I get a new, bigger drive.

Cons: None. Been working 24/7 for 11 months as a central movie and music library for a home network. No issues with installing on other computers. Never disconnects.

Overall Review: All my systems are WIn 7. Currently have a 2Tb and 1Tb 3.5" drives (WD). Currently shopping for a 4Tb drive maybe two during this BLACK Month Sales...and YES it /they will go right in this wonderful unit.

Looks GREAT!1/10/2014 6:26:17 PM

Pros: Well laid out. Easy access to everything...left and right side! The fans are silent. ALL cabling reached easily enough. Really like the GREEN GLOW.

Cons: Not really cons...read another review to watch the length of your video card, yes it was close but I had already checked out the measurements. Lastly, to install the AMD FX-9370 Vishera with LIQUID COOLING not only did the rear fan have to be removed but one of the top fans also had to be removed. The side panel fit exactly so it was able to close.

Overall Review: Really silent!! Yes I did use liquid cooling but the case fans are quiet. As for temperatures, NOT an issue even with the 220W processor. The GREEN GLOW is wicked.

Working out perfectly1/10/2014 6:15:15 PM

Pros: This is DDR2 and had an OLDER computer that would bog down whenever I switched from one task to another (only 2 Gb ). Once I replaced it with 4 Gb everything is running SMOOTHLY.

Cons: The PRICE for DDR2...this is old stuff!

Overall Review: This was a DUAL CORE system running WIN XP originally. I switched it over to WIN 7. And now running so smooth with 4 Gb that it is quickly becoming our main MPC. AWESOME!

Great Tablet!!!1/17/2013 10:33:07 PM

Pros: A disclaimer first-it is our first Wifi device (Andriod device). INCREDIBLE device! Bought it for wife (Mac bookpro broke, was old, etc) and wasn't sure how well it would be received. I want one now! Up and running in seconds! Screen display is gorgeous, seems faster than I would have thought possible. She "HAD" a bit of a learning curve but there was no stopping her. She was installing apps. I lost my wife to this tablet! OH!!! Just read in other comments about a memory card slot, so I have to look for it if my wife puts it down long enough:)

Cons: Cameras; I thought since it was for wife the camera would not be an issue. It probably isn't to her but I have already thought of the uses if the camera were of higher quality. Lack of documentation; would have been nice as a newbie Android user to get some direction but the web is full of info.

Overall Review: Rave reviews for the first TABLET in our household. I want one, teenagers already smoozing us up for one. Price was spectacular!!! Even got the 2 yr warranty! Found accessories online at some jungl-zon place and working out great.

BEAUTIFUL!1/17/2013 10:10:55 PM

Pros: From the moment we unboxed, it has been an great picture. Movies look great. Games are awesome! Even surfing the net looks better

Cons: Wish it had an adjustable stand or the ability to mount it on a separate stand. Can't get my son off his computer now.

Overall Review: Incredible price right before Christmas. Received it next day!

Working geat!12/26/2012 1:42:00 AM

Pros: Upgraded house to N protocol. Great signal strength on 2.4GHz. Nothing to test the 5GHz yet. Neighbors across street noticed the the new connection strength and say its better than their own router.

Cons: MIR - hate them but I still get suckered into them. But does make the price outrageous!

Overall Review: I never mess with my network unless I upgrade or move. SO, just throw the "mini" disc in your drive and go! Teens noticed the jump in speed immediately, wife just learning her tablet. Hardest part has been waiting a week for Christmas to come so we could pull from under the tree. Then I had to wait for everyone to go to bed so I could change the NETWORK!

No hardware let down!12/15/2012 12:18:00 AM

Pros: Been considering this for a LONG time now. Caught it per Thanksgiving Day for $50. I have noticed a reduced time for boot up. Still loading up my software so I can't really see a big difference in speed during usage.

Cons: SOFTWARE let down. Not taking any eggs off the hardware. I read how you are able to clone your original drive onto this drive using DISC WIZARD by Seagate. The software would not install on any of my computers which are all Win 7. Do not have any on Win xp anymore. Even tried freeware software, several programs, drive would not boot then. These are my experiences, yours may vary.

Overall Review: So to look at the bright side of things... I decided to do a fresh install. Long term this is really the best way to go. My WEI went from 5.6 to 5.9 (HDD is usually the lowest). I had a 2T Hitachi Deskstar that is SATA 6Gb. (Just realized this is SATA 3Gb...hmmm)

Perfect Fit12/15/2012 12:01:34 AM

Pros: Does the job. Included both sets of screws for the HDD and the case!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Dropped my new MOMENTUS XT Hybrid drive in then placed the whole unit into a 3.5" slot in my tower case. No Problems!

Perfect!7/18/2012 11:56:04 AM

Pros: Construction seems fine, cord is rugged and thick. No distortion in picture nor sound.

Cons: Been fighting cord memory, still coils up from packaging/shipping shape. Will be behind furniture soon so I can't see it. Not really a CON, just a testament of its ruggedness.

Overall Review: Extending my bedroom HTPC further away from the TV. Preferred to move the computer behind a nightstand than to buy new furniture to hold LCD & hide the computer. So computer will be above and behind my nightstand. Gear... Win 7 Ultimate IO Gear keyboard with trackball/mouse Athlon II X2 240 REGOR Asus GT 220 video (don't laugh, its doing a great job!) >4 Tb HDD storage

Works perfectly!7/18/2012 11:40:17 AM

Pros: Does not feel flimsy, cord is thick too. Its invisible to the system...no drivers, etc.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Bought this so I can extend the keyboard dongle up and out from behind the computer. Wife is extremely happy, no more holding the keyboard out for better reception. Win 7 Ultimate IO Gear keyboard with track/mouse

Loving everything.12/28/2011 9:08:06 AM

Pros: Everything is wonderful about this keyboard. The scroll-bar is the best control of volume I've seen. Audio jacks work perfectly, Keys are very sensitive for lite tying. The color choices are a great way to set the ambiance for KILL or web-surfing. G-Keys make life so much easier no matter if its game or software.

Cons: Not really a con; you do have to install the software to get the color change. But you would need the software for the G-Keys anyway.

Overall Review: I have an original G11 with 18 G-Keys but 12 is still more than enough.

Power-FILLED Board but DEACTIVATED???4/7/2011 2:04:21 AM

Pros: First of all this is my first "From-Scratch" build in 10 years...and well worth the wait! AMD 2600 is still running strong. No problems or issues with installation. Everything I needed was including (but knew that before ordering this board). Didn't like the "grinding' sound when locking down the CPU, checked 6-7 times to make sure pins weren't being bent, but apparently its the sliding tabs that press down the CPU (metal on metal). The Corsair H5O (original version) worked perfectly using the LGA 1156 configuration. So much room left around this block, I'm sure it helps with cooling of SFC chokes and Dram sticks. The 1600 memory had to be setup in BIOS (Overclocking Menu) but knew this ahead of time. Again no problems..nada..zilch. Haven't tried to Overclock yet, still bug-eyed at the smooth operation of my system. Really surprised at the ease it all went together!!!! INCREDIBLE!

Cons: No CONS on the board. Only my first NEWEGG CONS in 12 years. 1. Ordered Board Tuesday Night - received Monday Night (yes it was coast to coast) 3 day? 2. WHY IS STILL BOARD DEACTIVATED??? I would like to upgrade this board (to the GD65) if possible but its running so well I'd hate to tempt fate. Enough venting.

Overall Review: Had one scare, after assembling everything and powering on for the first time, I had NO power anywhere..not even LEDs. Press the Power button on the board! 4 SATA cables! Nice BLACK faceplate. Bios takes some getting use to. Last note; I was going AMD x6 up to the last second when I was double checking what options I had for SLI. Thats when I found this board with both SLI or CROSSFIRE. Which led to my discovery of the I5 2500k then the Hyper Thread I7 2600k. My System; Intel I7 2600K MSI P67A-GD55 B3 ATX SLI or Crossfire G.Skill 8Gb 1600 F3-12800CLD9D-8GBRL MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5 Corsair H50 CPU Cooler (with one fan) OCZ MOD X Stream-Pro 700W HITACHI 2Tb 7200 SATA 6Gb LITEON 24x DVD/CD Writer SATA Retail Windows 7 Home Premium OEM ROSEWILL Wind Knight ATX Mid Tower Case

GREAT3/29/2011 12:12:54 PM

Pros: Love the MODULAR concept! I only have one HDD and one DVD writer so I attached one SATA cable for those. And attached the PCI Express cable for my video card. Everything is clean and neat. The mesh encasing the cables is a great little luxury. I was able to get this PSU and a LiteOn DVD writter (retail) for $101 which included a free 4Gb OCZ USB Flash Drive...Can't beat that. This deal was almost a year ago. The case is so neat and tidy.

Cons: Only negative is that the EPS12V 8 Pin cable was not long enough to route behind my motherboard back plate. Yes I have this PSU mounted at the bottom of my case. Figured this might be a problem so I had ordered an EPS12V extension for $4.99 from Newegg.

Overall Review: It has been almost 10 years since my last "from scratch" build, I forgot to press the power button on my motherboard to turn it on. I was getting so upset because it wasn't working after turning on the PSU (no lights, no clicks, NOTHING AT ALL!!!!), all had been going so well, then my son asked if I had pressed the power button...that's my boy! My System; Intel I7 2600K MSI P67A-GD55 B3 ATX SLI or Crossfire G.Skill 8Gb 1600 F3-12800CLD9D-8GBRL MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5 Corsair H50 CPU Cooler (with one fan) OCZ MOD X Stream-Pro 700W HITACHI 2Tb 7200 SATA 6Gb LITEON 24x DVD/CD Writer SATA Retail Windows 7 Home Premium OEM ROSEWILL Wind Knight

WORKS FINE3/29/2011 11:55:55 AM

Pros: Retail package...comes with everything you need; SATA Cable, Nero 9 Essentials, Software drivers/apps. Seems faster than my older LITEON DVD drives. Win 7 acknowledged the drive right from the start and have not even installed the enclosed software/apps.

Cons: The only noticeable noise in my case comes from this drive when you load in certain discs. It's always the same discs, not a random issue. And I wish the exterior (not just the face plate) was all black...the gray and beige are really screwing the aesthetics inside my case....NO EGGS off

Overall Review: Interior colors...maybe some electrical tape...hmmm My System; Intel I7 2600K MSI P67A-GD55 B3 ATX SLI or Crossfire G.Skill 8Gb 1600 F3-12800CLD9D-8GBRL MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5 Corsair H50 CPU Cooler (with one fan) OCZ MOD X Stream-Pro 700W HITACHI 2Tb 7200 SATA 6Gb LITEON 24x DVD/CD Writer SATA Retail Windows 7 Home Premium OEM ROSEWILL Wind Knight

Incredible Case!3/29/2011 11:42:39 AM

Pros: This case is so COOL...and mean that in relation to temperature. Routed all my cables either behind the motherboard plate, so you only see them when they plug into their place. Was laughing at the quick connectors but using them for my drives, I removed the entire "quick lock down" for the add-on cards because I felt comfortable screwing down the video card. Deep enough to fit my MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II video card and have a fan on the side panel right over it. Silent and cool are the main thoughts when pondering the beauty of this case.

Cons: DEACTIVATED????? Well it took me a year to actually put mine to use, but would order it again at $49.99.

Overall Review: I do not even have the side fan on, only using the two fans that came with and the on on the Corsair H50 cpu radiator cooler. My System; Intel I7 2600K MSI P67A-GD55 B3 ATX SLI or Crossfire G.Skill 8Gb 1600 F3-12800CLD9D-8GBRL MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5 Corsair H50 CPU Cooler (with one fan) OCZ MOD X Stream-Pro 700W HITACHI 2Tb 7200 SATA 6Gb LITEON 24x DVD/CD Writer SATA Retail Windows 7 Home Premium OEM ROSEWILL Wind Knight

AWESOME!3/6/2011 2:37:40 PM

Pros: Incredible keyboard. Plugged in dongle, installed batteries (by this point Win XP said it was ready to use) and RESET both dongle and keyboard. Up and running in just moments. Feels great, trackball and keys are very responsive, no drivers/software to install. My techie wife is very impressed. Works from 20 feet away easily. We're not trackball fans but we are both so pleased with it. Exactly what I (we) wanted in an HTPC keyboard.

Cons: None really just some wishes like illuminated keys and a way charge batteries while not in use.

Overall Review: I was leaning towards one of several other keyboards/brands. Came across all the reviews for this keyboard and couldn't believe how well it was liked. Thanks to all the reviewers. Using this keyboard on a AMD 2500 (Barton),WIN XP Pro sp3,WMP 11,MPC-HC and VLC (Using WMP 11 because of this keyboard...WOW still surprised at the response) in a large bedroom with a study. And a 20+ year old SHARP "TUBE" TV (26")!
