Pros: Fast enough. 110-180 MB/s
Runs as cool as my single platter drives even when under load
Construction feels good
Passes smart extended test

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When I installed this drive I immediately subjected it to a smart extended test and over 3 hours of writes (coming from (2) raid0 1TB drives). The drive held 140 MB/s for a while and then tapered down to about 115 MB/s. Early writes were around 180-220 MB/s and they didnt taper off as fast as I thought they would. Burst transfers should be very fast. I require this drive to saturate my gigabit network which peaks at about 110MB/s. My HGST drives are faster but I dont require that kind of speed (they are also louder, hotter, and more expensive).

I am not using this drive for surveillance. The price was right so I bought it. WD has had a good track record lately.

SeaSonic SSR-360GP 360W ATX12V v2.31 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Been using this PSU in a home server build for several years. It reduced my servers idle power consumption from 65 to 40 watts without ANY other hardware changes (lower wattage + gold rating).

Cables plenty long for any system that only needs less than 400 watts.

Quiet fan and its a standard size making replacing it (if you feel like it) very easy.

Cons: No modular option for the 360 watt version.

Other Thoughts: This was my first seasonic purchase. I have been using their power supplies ever sense. Their reputation is so top notch that other top of the line brands use seasonic as an oem.

If you want a solid unit, go with a seasonic.

Phanteks PH-F140XP_BK 140mm PWM Case Fan

5 out of 5 eggs $17 is too much 11/10/2015

This review is from: Phanteks PH-F140XP_BK 140mm PWM Case Fan

Pros: I use these fans, not as good as noctua but not nearly bad enough to warrant paying extra for noctua/

I bought 3 of these for $10 each on sale. Thats is the price they should sell for. At $17 you should just pay a little more for noctua.

They blow a good amount of air without making a lot of noise. You can actually feel the air moving without hearing the noise. Most fans cant do that.

Cons: Sometimes makes a little bearing noise if mounted funny. No big deal.

Other Thoughts: Phanteks makes good stuff, just think that $17+ is too much for these fans. $15 would be fair, but they do go on sale for $10 at times.
