An other reliable product from Antec

Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG650 Gold, 650W Fully Modular, Full-Bridge LLC and DC to DC Converter Design, Full Japanese Caps, Zero RPM Manager, Compacted Size 140mm, 10 Year Warranty
Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG650 Gold, 650W Fully Modular, Full-Bridge LLC and DC to DC Converter Design, Full Japanese Caps, Zero RPM Manager, Compacted Size 140mm, 10 Year Warranty

Pros: So far so good. The small size and the fully modular cables made it easier to install in a itx case. I've been using Antec power supply for years now and haven't had any issue yet. - small size - gold and fully modular - high warranty period - price

Cons: - none

Overall Review: - wished it would use the same 4 rails technology Antec used before.

So far so good (4TB)

Seagate IronWolf Pro 4TB NAS Hard Drive 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ST4000NE0025
Seagate IronWolf Pro 4TB NAS Hard Drive 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ST4000NE0025

Pros: Properly working hard drive. Ran 3 extended read test (forward, backward, butterfly) to check for bad sectors, plus ran the self extended test and all returned OK. - It's an HDD - 5 years warranty - Quieter than my 4TB HGST

Cons: - none

Overall Review: - A bit pricier than some other NAS intended drive but I think it was worth it for the reliability and extended warranty ( got a 30$ discount with masterpass though ).

Beautiful M-ITX case

RAIJINTEK METIS Aluminum M-ITX Case, USB 3.0* 2, Compatible with Standard ATX Power Supply, 170mm VGA Card Length, 160mm CPU Cooler Height, 120mm Performing Fan Pre-Installed, 7 Colors Option - Black
RAIJINTEK METIS Aluminum M-ITX Case, USB 3.0* 2, Compatible with Standard ATX Power Supply, 170mm VGA Card Length, 160mm CPU Cooler Height, 120mm Performing Fan Pre-Installed, 7 Colors Option - Black

Pros: Very good looking M-ITX case and was pretty cheap during the holidays. Power supply position can be weird but still OK. Overall installation can be a pain sometime ( especially when plugin case cables to the motherboard, such as the HDD and POWER switch ) but this is to be expected for such a small case. - Build quality - Design - Aluminum and brush finish

Cons: - Power supply position

- Good

HGST Deskstar NAS 3.5" 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Retail Packaging
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: - It works - Somewhat OK consumer support from HGST ( they wont pay for shipping )

Cons: - Never buy newegg extended warrently. First, its not even covered by newegg itself but by a third party. Even if you buy it, you wont have support until the original warrantly expires ( at staples, our extended warrantly covered the manufactuer warrantly ).

Overall Review: - My first got spin retry count issues so I returned it. At first I thought it was the HDD but found out later that it was probably due to a power supply issue instead. The one I got from RMA still works fine as I post this review

Great buy
