Western Digital WD RE4-GP WD2002FYPS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: High capacity, 64Mb. Warranty.
advertised "Enterprise Storage"

Cons: Reliability. I dunno what newegg has going on here, but this shows as 4 starts, but more than 25% of the reviews are 1 star. WE have a bunch of these in a home-made SAN. Initially they wouldn't work due to firmware issues. We upgraded the firmware on more than 25 of them. Since then, which is over two years ago, we've had a failure rate of 75%. Literally we've replaced 3 out of 4 of them within that period.

Eventually, this got to be a big enough headache that we retired this system - it was deemed too maintenance intensive and unreliable.

Other Thoughts: Anyone want some of these drives?

Seagate BarraCuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: cheap

Cons: failure... about 1.5-2 years in. It's now overheating and there are areas of the drive that cause total system failure if accessed.
I've been trying to RMA, but the Seagate process does not recognize the serial number on the drive....

2 out of 5 eggs Dead just outside of warranty 09/10/2010

This review is from: Sunbeam Hush PSU-HUSH580-US 580W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: It's cheap. Buy more than one and have a spare

Cons: Purchased 6/2009. Installed 7/2009. Died while on vacation 8/2010, had to pay someone to come by the house, pull it, install a new PSU, and put it back in the rack... I've since ordered a new PS from newegg at about 5x the cost, I need reliable.

Other Thoughts: Basic PS in a machine that's going to be around <1 year, sure.. Reliable, no. Easily warrantied per other reviews, no.
