Western Digital WD Green WD20EZRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Solid drive, decent access times. Probably best used for media storage.
-Runs very quiet AND cool - I have this thing docked pretty much 24/7 in a Thermaltake BlacX dock, and it stays cooler to the touch - with no fans or outside cooling influence whatsoever - better than just about any other drive in my fleet here.
-Still running strong after almost a year. No weird noises or hiccups, data still intact. Sounds silly to have to point out, but this drive actually meets all of the minimum prerequisites for a decent drive - stores stuff, doesn't randomly decide to be inaccessible, doesn't fail after a month and send all of your data into oblivion, won't bring the internal temp of your chassis up more than your PSU or your vid card.

Cons: -If it fails within the next couple of years, that'd be a con. It hasn't yet after nearly a year, so none.

Other Thoughts: Does what you should expect a decent hdd to do, and does it well. Maybe isn't the fastest drive out there, but it's totally not designed or priced to be, and I therefore consider it an excellent value product.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GZH
  • Verified Owner

Pros: -Install as easy as any other RAM install. Pop in chips. Go into BIOS and tweak your timings, if that's your thing.
-Speaking of which, these guys handle a pretty decent overclocking, too. I run them at stock, but have briefly cranked them up to 2400 just for the curiosity of it, and they still ran stable under stress test. See other reviews for more details on this, as most seem to have had similar success and ease getting them up there.

Cons: -None that I have encountered so far. G.Skill RAM tends to be great value. These chips were no exception.
-Can't somehow magically make Unity engine use more than 4 gigs of it(OK, OK.. I just didn't want to use the ol' 'doesn't do my laundry' line again.)

Other Thoughts: Been running 4 x 4GB of these for a few months now, and was running 2 x 4GB for a year or so before that. No problems whatsoever adding the additional 2 x 4GB, and no RAM-related issues since. Running W7x64.
