WD Black 500GB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5003AZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast hard drive when it works

Cons: After only running my brand new build for less then a month, my computer start to act weird and games would not run correctly. After doing some troubleshooting, I found nothing but errors in my event viewer pointing to the Western Digital hard drive. I have tried all I could but was not able to repair the drive. Time to see if they are willing to replace this fail of a hard drive.....not that I'm even sure I want one of their drives again.

Rosewill SATA 1.5 / 3.0 / 6.0 Gb/s Internal 2.5

Pros: This is a cheap, fast, and awesome setup for retrieving data from hard drives. I have been using this a lot to backup user info on machines that have completely died and clone images to new hard drives. This has saved my company time and money!

Cons: As explained in previous reviews, the adapter will not quite line up evenly with the hard drive. The kit does provide you with a rubber case for the drive to lift it up for even line up.

My solution to this has been to either flip the hard drive up side (usually for quick jobs) or let the adapter just hang off the table while connected to the drive.

SteelSeries Merc Stealth Black USB Wired Ergonomic Gaming Keyboard

1 out of 5 eggs Awesome keyboard but died 07/11/2012

This review is from: SteelSeries Merc Stealth Black USB Wired Ergonomic Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Great keyboard with wonderful extra key layout for gaming sessions. Back lit keys are great for late night gaming.

Cons: The software for modding the key layout is not the best I have seen but it is doable. The reason for the 1 egg review is due to the keyboard falling apart on me after 10 months. I bought it at Quakecon 2011 after replacing the original ZBoard Merc I used to own. About 2 weeks ago, my keyboard started flashing during gaming sessions and would not respond to the point I would have to reboot in order for it to work. After verifying that it is not my motherboard going bad or PSU, I called Steelseries to see about a possible RMA. They would not help me cause "I did not have a receipt". I bought it at a freakin convention!! Their tech support would not even help me. This was the worst purchase I have ever made!
