Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pretty fast drive, tons of storage space (3.63TB of actual space to be exact). Comes well packed in a thick air bubble/mailer. In transferring large data files, I get around 93-150MB/s.

Cons: This is my 2nd drive after RMA, as the first one I received took a crash. The first drive I had received, it was recognized immediately in Windows Disk Management and setup was a breeze. The 2nd drive however, another story; I had to use GParted (third-party software) to set the drive up. See below.

Other Thoughts: I had to use third-party software to get this drive going. Just like everyone else is saying in the comments, yes, had to use GParted, Once you get GParted going, you must "Create Partition Table." If you haven't used the program before, research it before or have someone else who knows what they're doing, do it. I had to setup the drive as "GPT." Once I did this, I booted into Windows and loaded up Disk Management. From there, I did a Quick Format and all 3.63TBs of space. It was kind of a pain, but not too bad.

Pros: Works quite well, thick, great build quality, includes protective end caps, and packaged well. Connectors are solid, not flimsy at all. I would definitely buy one of these again if ever needed. Great for the price!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Using with an Onkyo TX-NR609 A/V Receiver and Creative Fatal1ty Pro 7.1 Sound Card

G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10Q-16GTX

Pros: Memory runs at specified speeds using the XMP profile. Had no problems whatsoever. I could definitely notice the difference in the overall performance of my PC after installing these babies. They also look great in my red themed PC.

Cons: It's not really a con, but the edges of the RAM sticks are VERY sharp. Just be careful if installing. They can give you a nice knuckle scratch or two.

Other Thoughts: Using with ASUS Sabertooth X79 mobo, i7 3970X CPU, and using 2 sets of 16GB. Fires up like a charm, without a flinch at 2400MHz!
