Hitachi GST Deskstar 5K3000 HDS5C3030ALA630 (0F12460) 3TB 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Decent in RAID config
Warranty period of 5 years is nice.

Cons: You're gonna need the warranty. I bought a pair of these in 2011 and both have failed this year.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy these if you need a drive that will last for a while. Fortunately, HGST honors their warranty and has replaced the failing drives.

5 out of 5 eggs Works for gaming 06/30/2013

This review is from: Parallels Desktop for Mac - Academic

Pros: Excellent piece of software. Works well for virtualizing Linux and Windows both.
3D acceleration works well enough on WinXp to play Halo, SupCom2, MapleStory and other games on my Macbook Pro w/ 650M GPU.

Cons: Some intermittent networking issues with Ubuntu virtual machines.
