WD Re 3TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch WD3000FYYZ
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Not much at this point. Regret the purchase.

Cons: 1st Drive was drumming its heads from the moment I powered it up... Newegg quickly replaced it for me... or as quick as return ship and wait gets...
Second drive runs but makes more noise than it should and is noticeably slower in performance that it should be.

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is why the HD manufactures are doomed. They are all putting out trash products with high DOA and in-life failure rates. My firm uses SSDs for anything under 250GB now and as soon as the 500's get down to the $250 range, will make that move as well. Give it another year or two and the HD manufactures might as well bag it and sell all of their interests to China... they have nobody to blame but themselves for the crash in quality over the last couple of years.

BUFFALO TeraStation III 4-Bay 8 TB (4 X 2 TB) RAID 1U Rack Mountable Network Attached Storage (NAS) - TS-RX8.0TL/R5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good price point if you don't care about unstable services and unreliable backups and recoveries...

Cons: Have two of these as well as a couple of the like designed iSCSI units. Total junk. We bought in big last Fall and have discovered that they are very high maintenance and the support people are of no help. Twice we have had units lose a drive and not be able to rebuild a RAID 5. Backup support through local USB is flaky at best. Drops connections to Windows authentication weekly... generally just a pain. Better off putting up a simple linux server or windows 2008 storage session. At least you can debug those.

Use these for network scratch space but don't put anything you will miss on them unless you place to run a job to copy them to another device for backups. Learned my lesson and we are dumping all Buffalo products and getting something more reliable.

Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) ECC Fully Buffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Server Memory Model CT2KIT25672AF667
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It memory, what can be said... If it works great! If not...

Cons: Ordered two of these and both packages had a bad stick. Took the two good sticks to make a set and returned the others for replacement. This is where one of the weaknesses of using newegg comes in. DOA returns are at the customers expense... Suggest not buying Crucial server memory right now. Have had other DOA or quick deaths of late. They must have a QC problem...
