Seagate BarraCuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Bought two of them. After several attempts throughout the week to move content onto these drives, I gave up. Kept formatting, raiding, using each one independently and even tried content from other drives to no avail.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy. I used to have problems with Seagate drives years ago and it seems their not much better today.

Corsair Force 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I love SSD and would recommend for anyone. Super fast. Normally takes over 30 min to install OS but not with SSD. Entire OS was installed well under 10 min. Very responsive and works great. I click and things happen almost instantly. I should mention my machine has 12 gigs Ram which probably plays a factor. Either way, this drive is fast.

Cons: SSD is still moderately new so it's kind of expensive. I wish I got a larger size drive.

Other Thoughts: You should buy one. You won't be disappointed.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) DirectX 11 GV-N450OC-1GI 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good price, nice looking card, two fans and runs cool. I'm usually very satisfied with Gigabyte products so not sure what happened with this one.

Cons: Started using in early April and only had about 1.5 months before continuously getting error messages about the display driver stopped responding and has recovered. I originally installed the drivers that came on the disk (ver. 259.22) and also updated to the the most recent ones on Gigabyte's website (Ver. 265.58) and continue having the same issue. I even moved to another mother board slot resulting with still the same issue. Problem seems to be getting worse.

Other Thoughts: I contacted tech support and they did respond quickly but didn't really get much support. They told me to use the latest drivers even though I specifically told them I already was. They then immediately suggested I submit an RMA which is what I'm doing.
