Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap and fast.

Cons: Cheap and unreliable.

Other Thoughts: Well, maybe I should have done more homework with my purchase of these, but I was happy to score five 3TB Seagate Barracuda drives from here 10 months ago for the price I did at the time. Fast forward to a week ago. All 5 are in a QNAP TS-559 Pro II (love it) doing relatively light-duty work in and ESXi cluster. With NO warning (thanks, SMART) TWO drives failed at the same time. Yes, it's RAID 5. DOH! Thankfully I'm not completely hosed because of QNAP's extra parity and ability to mount this in read-only mode to save my data off to another location (it's a huge pain tho, because I've got it in multiple iSCSI block-level LUNs; not Seagate's fault there). What IS Seagate's fault is the initial implication that these were near-enterprise-class drives with a 2 year warranty, which Newegg still lists INCORRECTLY on here (please confirm and fix, guys)! These drives are 12 month throw-aways, and Seagate knows it because they've reduced the warranty to ONE YEAR. Either use them in a desktop, or plan for some pain later. I knew one day they'd fail, but thought it'd be closer to the 2+ year mark, and NOT all at once. :(

Xigmatek AOS (Aeronautical Oil System Bearing) XAF-F1255 120MM PWM Fan with Copper Bushing Axis Black Blade White LED
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: a VERY GOOD way, of course. ;-) Cool LEDs to add style, and some seriously quiet air-moving muscle.

Cons: None that I can think of -- a little pricey, but not too bad.

Other Thoughts: I'm a fan of this fan.

ADATA Supreme Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model AD3S1333C4G9-2

5 out of 5 eggs Works like a champ in late 2012 Samsung Laptop 01/19/2013

This review is from: ADATA Supreme Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model AD3S1333C4G9-2

Pros: SAMSUNG Series 3 NP305E5A-A07US Notebook. Factory RAM is ADATA. Swapped out single DIMM with these two, and laptop runs like a champ. Price is great too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This RAM and a Kingston Hyper-X 120GB SSD made this somewhat slow laptop a real screamer, actually. VERY fast now -- my daughter is THRILLED, and so am I. Thanks Newegg for super-fast shipment.
