Seagate Pipeline HD ST2000VM002 2TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased two drives for HTPCs. Both drives failed 166 days after purchase date. Diagnostic software did not run because of bad sectors. Data may or may not be lost. Seagate used to be good. I would rate, if possible, zero eggs.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Solution for HTPC and Business Applications 08/13/2015

This review is from: Zotac GeForce GTX 750 Graphic Card - 1 GB GDDR5 SDRAM - PCI Express 3.0

Pros: Cost, fanless cooling solution, DisplayPort, no separate PSU plug-in cable required

Cons: Driver update required two download attempts before installation. A pregnant yak is faster than download from Nvidia website. No rebate :)

Other Thoughts: Purchased card to daisy-chain dual Acer K272HUL monitors for desktop. Software updated driver within minutes after installation. Card is more than adequate for HTPC and business (non-gaming) applications.

OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
CPU: Intel i3-4130
M/B: Supermicro X10SLM+-F
RAM: 16 GB
OS SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
Data HDD: Seagate 4TB
PSU: Seasonic SS-520GM

Intel EXPI9301CT Desktop Adapter Gigabit CT 10/100/1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Intel, PnP, simple

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I didn't realize how much a performance drag in-board NIC and poorly written drivers until purchasing server-class motherboard and reading several internet forums including Newegg reviews. Item was designated for HTPC. Download speed was almost six-fold improvement. Best investment in recent memory. No more using onboard NIC on consumer motherboards.
