WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

3 out of 5 eggs stress test before you use these! 01/15/2011

This review is from: WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX

Pros: These drives are quiet. They never even got warm to the touch after 2 hours building in RAID. I am proud of my cooling system. SATA 6.0Gb is a great marketing gimmick.

Cons: Bought some of these for a cheap install on RAID 1 RACK. I try to buy drives from different retailers. One out of two from Newegg failed within 6 hours. I knew I took a chance with this drive, but what can I say, I like to save a buck (or 10). Now I'm stuck waiting for RMA to ship back. What a hassle man! WD should start paying me to test their faulty drives.

Other Thoughts: I used to be a WD guy! If Newegg didn't pack so well I'd think it was the UPS man.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I love this drive. Runs quiet for my needs and not too hot.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've always been a WD guy but I've had more success with the Seagates the past year or two. Perhaps the tables are turning.

TRENDnet TC-P24C5E 24-port Cat5/5e Unshielded Patch Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Haven't had any problems. There weren't any issues punching the cables in. Wire diagrams were helpful... its been a few years so reference was convenient.

Cons: Skip this and get something better if you have foil shielded cable.

Other Thoughts: Basic, cheap; just what i needed.
