WD Red 2TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD20EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Quiet
-Runs Cool
-Most importantly, it works, works well.
-Hits between 70-90 MB/s on network transfers with FREENas and ZFS.

Running 2 of these in RAID 1 with Freenas. They have been on for 9 months straight, no issues. Will buy more in the future.

Cons: -It seems like more people are inclined to leave a review if their HDDs were DOA. I suspect there's many a buyer with few if any problems with these.

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Solid as usual.

I spent a few bucks more to get these, because I trust Gskill. I've used their "Value" Ram kits for several PC Builds and have not had one issue.

Cons: -None

5 out of 5 eggs Glad Gigabyte still makes this! 11/14/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-G41MT-S2PT LGA 775 Intel G41 + ICH7 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -Socket 775, allows the use of Core 2 Duos / Quads. Which still are great cpus.
-DDR3, Can stick cheap DDR3 Memory.
-Ultra Durable, solid caps...
-Gigabyte quality.
-New, a lot better to go with a new motherboard than to search around for one on auction sites, that's used, and may fail sooner than one bought new with a warranty.

Cons: -Sata 2. Wish it had Sata 3 ports.

Other Thoughts: Use this motherboard for a cheap FreeNAS Build:

-Core 2 Duo 6400 2.13GHz
-This motherboard.
-Gskill Value Ram DDR3 2 x 4GB
-Western Digital RED 2 x 2TB in ZFS Mirror (Raid 1).
-Cooler Master Silent Pro M600
