TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have been using 2 of these drives since May 2013 as media storage drives in windows media center for whole house steaming. They are still running great while not being in a RAID array.

Cons: ALL 7200 rpm drives HAVE TO BE ACTIVELY COOLED! If not, don't expect them to last very long.

Other Thoughts: When I first bought these, I got a Rosewill Blackhawk case with them because it came with 2 front fans preinstalled cooling fans for the HDD cages. It's been great ever since.

MSI MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 and SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When working, all is well, I'm happy.

Cons: When I first got the board, the killer nic was switching on & off, never stable, so, I flashed the bios. The board came with the latest Bios. After that it was okay for about a month & a half. Then, the pc would start slowing down & the usb3 controller started dropping out. Reflashed the bios, The PC was back at speed, but, the usb3 was gone.

Other Thoughts: Either the bios chip or it is a poorly written bios. The current file is 7693vM2. I've tried it in Windows 7 32b, win 10 tp 32b, &,win 10 64b.The most problems show up in the 32 bit windows installs.

Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Five (5) Preinstalled Fans, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good looking, plenty of room, comes with 5 installed quiet fans. Has very good cable management and not too many ODD slots.

Cons: Out of the 5 installed fans, only 1 came with a motherboard header. All the rest are molex connectors.

Other Thoughts: The fan connectors were the only fault I found with this case.
It's a great case otherwise.
