TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

1 out of 5 eggs Don't know why I ignored the 2 star rating... 09/13/2013

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It probably works well.. the ones that work.

Cons: DOA. the only part that didn't work on my new build. Im not sure why I ignored the reviewers. Never again.

Other Thoughts: Just ordered another drive. About to RMA this one. I don't think I'll be doing online shopping for essential parts like this one. I hate shipping and handling times when I'm trying to get a computer working.

Acer Laptop Aspire V3-771G-6485 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3230M (2.60 GHz) 6 GB Memory 750 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M 17.3

Pros: Using the Nvidia 730m @ 1600x900 resolution this laptop plays
- TERA at high settings ~ 45fps
- Guild Wars 2 on High settings - locked 30fps
- Alan Wake maxed ~ 40fps
- Far Cry 3 Very High - 30fps

So far, its been playing every game I throw at it with decent graphical settings. The Intel HD4000 was able to play those games with decent settings as well.

Cons: 5400rpm HDD? They still make those?

The LCD screen viewing angles are kinda bad, which could be a built in privacy protector.

Other Thoughts: I added a 250gig SSD to boot windows and install all my games in. 5400rpm drive was just painfully slow.

-- Don't do it if you're not willing to lose your investment -
I overclocked the 730m from 724mhz to 922mhz and its doing good on temps. At the price, It doesnt really matter if it burns out faster than anticipated.
