Orico Hard Disk HDD Docking Station Dock 8628 US3-C Dual bay 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: See below

Cons: See below

Other Thoughts: Identical to Syba model found here:

except Syba version is white and less than half the price.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9W
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 1 stick still works

Cons: After about 8 months my computer started suffering random program crashes, reboots, and BSoDs, then came the day it wouldn't boot at all. Turns out 1 stick went bad (nothing but fails in Memtest). With bad stick removed system works fine, 'though low in memory. Problem is I cannot get warranty replacement without losing my computer for a couple weeks.

Other Thoughts: I don't have a credit card for them to hold hostage so they won't send me a replacement first and they won't replace a single stick so my only option for replacement is going to leave me without a computer for a couple weeks - time during which I'll still have to be paying for my internet service, even though I'll be unable to use it. CSR was not helpful, nor was supervisor. I think my 15+ year association with Corsair is at an end. Anyone hear good things about G.Skill or Patriot?

Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Prices are finally getting almost back to normal.

Cons: Only 2 tears ago virtually Seagate internal drives came with 3-year or 5-year warranties. Now they come with a 1-year!?! I guess Seagate got tired of replacing all those pieces of junk they made every 15-20 months.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money on Seagate. They make unreliable junk, turned Maxtor from good to so bad they ditched the brand altogether and they'll do the same to Samsung. Stick with Western Digital and their subsidiary HGST, (formerly Hitachi,) brands.
