I've had 3 dead Seagates in the last year, not a good record. My most reliable drives have been the Samsungs, and they happen to be the fastest of all the drives in their class so I am very happy with them, not even one problem in almost 3 years in Raid 0.
For those people who are proud of...
I'm waiting for Best Buy to dry up, they have these "psuedo" sales and their sale prices have been
found to be higher than internet regular prices. Most of the smaller players can go away also,
they have bad cust service and bad prices. I like most of the bigger guys because the service
You gotta be kidding, the Samsungs are known to be reliable, I have a couple in Raid and they perform FLAWLESSLY, these are probably the fastest, quietest drives out in this size. Now Seagate, that's a different story as their current FAILURES are the stuff
LEGENDS are made of, every major site...
Actually, the Best Buy "Geek Squad" UPS is very good, (got mine brand new off Ebay) and
Office Depot has some on clearance right now, $50.00 for a decent size UPS.
Personally, I would not waste too much money on getting an overkill UPS system, most of
them all operate the same way and...
Amazingly, the 260 benches very close to the 285. My overclocked 260 can beat a normal clocked
285 in most all benches, but the overclocks on the 285 don't seem as impressive. The 285 really
is not worth the extra money, the sweet spot appears to be the 260 at this point. If the 285
Well, I've always overclocked AMD stuff, because they would let you! What also changed for
Intel was the ability to start overclocking their chips properly. (Remember how much Intel HATED
people overclocking their chips?) Now that Intel has pretty much embraced overclocking, they
These are pretty old, should be about $50.00 each, even then I would have to think about
it. Most of the newer drives meet or exceed the speed of these, so I really don't know
what the benefit of getting these would be? I am quickly filling up my 2TB Raid 0
storage, so I don't think these are...
Quite honestly, all these Seagate drives are major FAIL just waiting to happen. (Look up all the
problems with these, if you don't know by now) But, if you must invest in your data's demise,
at least FAIL with the Seagate 1.5TB which is always on sale for 109.00 or so.
The Samsung and...
I thinks these cards will be $250.00 in no time, Amazon.com has a BFG 280 for
$299.00 all day, free shipping.
I want to bite, but I think the 295 is my next step. My
highly overclocked 260 Benches beyond the 280, so I don't
know if moving to a 280 is going to be a major step up.
