areca ARC-1264IL-16 PCI-Express 2.0 x8 Low Profile SATA III (6.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: > Low-Profile with a 16-Drive Capacity.

> Fast (I haven't found the cap "yet".)

> Management web interface is top notch and works like a charm.

> You can expand arrays without completely rebuilding them.

Cons: > The SAS ports on the back can interfere with other longer cards.

No other cons. Knock on wood.

Other Thoughts: The results of a 6 disk RAID-6 array using ST1000DM003 disks from CrystalDiskMark.

Seagate Samsung Spinpoint M9T ST2000LM003 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great speed even for a laptop hard drive. I get about 120MB/s read and 115MB/s write. I can hear them only on spin up. Low power consumption and little heat output.

Cons: None so far. Fingers crossed!

Other Thoughts: I have a total of 13 of these drives. One of them in my laptop for media and the others in a NAS with 4 Raid 5 arrays. I have been slowly adding to it so all the drives are different ages and I have yet to have a drive failure. With Raid 5 my gigabit network is the bottleneck when reading from the arrays. Read speeds to an SSD are about 220MB/s. I love these drives.

Logitech G230 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset

4 out of 5 eggs Good Headset 02/04/2015

This review is from: Logitech G230 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset

Pros: I got it when my G930 decided to die. The sound quality is good but most importantly it is very comfortable after some adjusting. The cable is long and sleeved.

Cons: After using the headset for about 4 months now one major problem I see developing is me ripping the cable out of the small controller or out of the headset because the controller gets caught when I stand up. I could remedy this by simply taking it off before I stand but old habits die hard.

The headset was very snug when I received it. Granted I have a big head. Bending the top pad loosened it to a comfortable level.
