EVGA GeForce GT 730 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 01G-P3-2730-RX 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -DirectX 12
-Decent performance

Cons: -none yet

Other Thoughts: -Got with the GDDR5 version if you can. It is more powerful and consumes LESS power according the Nvidia specs page
-I'll be using this for my Windows Server lab needs

Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K1000.C 0A39264 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: *Compared with a competitively priced SSD, has large 320GB storage
*Compared with SSD, no 3.5" to 2.5" adapter required
*This DOA drive I got was the shining light to never buy an HDD again

Cons: *Mine was DOA from NewEgg
*Compared with an SSD will not last nearly as long
*Inferior performance
*Inferior reliablity

Other Thoughts: this was the last straw, no more HDDs for me! After 12 years of HDDs breaking down, RMAs, and wasting time and money, I've thrown in the towel with HDDs.

Unless I need an HDD for a RAID array, I'll never again buy an HDD for a single disk drive system (desktop or laptop).

SSDs are a great solution with just a slightly higher price. They are far more reliable, have superior performance, and have sufficient storage space.

Getting those systems ready for Windows 10? Take it from me, GET AN SSD!

Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 2.5

3 out of 5 eggs No 5.25" Drive Bay Adapter... Again? 05/27/2015

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDEC120GB

Pros: * wonderful speed
* super reliable
* made in America

Cons: * no 5.25" drive bay adapter

Other Thoughts: I'm getting sick of the manufacturers (in this case Mushkin) pretending that people only use these for laptops and don't include the adapter. The fact is most people use these for desktops.

Some bottom line exec there wanted to save a dollar or two by not including screws and the adapter. Well, the bottom line exec here (me) will not buy from you people who cut corners. I don't care if you're the last one left making these in America.

I have to now go out and buy an expensive after-market 5.25" adapter from a third-party when they could have sent me one with the SSD.
