Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD6400BPVT 640GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cheap, good capacity.

Cons: Dies after only 2 years, just past the warranty period.

Other Thoughts: Hey WD, here's some free, but really good, advice: If you can't sell a drive with a 5 year warranty, do NOT sell one at all. It will cause potential buyers to wonder what other bad management and manufacturing decisions might be affecting your other product lines. Remember: Quality, quality, quality!!

Foxconn SFF R50-D4 Intel Atom D525 (1.8GHz, Dual-core) Intel NM10 Intel GMA 3150 Barebone

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Small footprint. Low power consumption.

Cons: Fan is a little loud. For a few extra dollars, Intel could have installed a quieter fan.

Other Thoughts: Used this in a home-made SAN. Implemented RAID1 in software (via Linux) and enabled SMB networking for a common file server solution in my home. The board has been up 24x7 for about 6 months. No issues.

acomdata Samurai PRO 500GB USB 2.0 / Firewire400 / Firewire800 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Nice price. Firewire and USB support for my mixed environment workplace and household (OSX, Linux, Windows). Quiet. Includes 3 cables. A rubber bumper guards the sides and corners. Nice blue LED. Four eggs the the reasons listed below. Otherwise a definite good deal. I do love shopping here.

Cons: I wish, wish, wish the manufacturer had enclosed this in aluminum, instead of plastic. The unit seems to stay cool, but a nice metal case ensures heat transfer.

The unit was shipped by Newegg in a shipping envelope, and not wrapped in bubble wrap in a cardboard box.

Other Thoughts: The drive arrived in a shipping envelope - with MINIMAL shock packing. It's package was ripped and a corner looked collapsed. Fortunately the drive housing sustained no scratches or other indication of direct impact/shock. I'm currently performing a full format to check for bad sectors and giving the unit a full workout. FYI - I'd pay a little more to have it shipped in a cardboard box.
