Most Favorable Review

Great external OR internal drives

WD Elements 10TB USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive Black WDBWLG0100HBK-NESN
WD Elements 10TB USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive Black WDBWLG0100HBK-NESN

Pros: Fast backup speeds initially - starts at 180 MB/s then eventually when filling drive drops to 110 MB/S Drives Quiet Stay Cool White Label Helium Drives USB 3

Cons: 5400 RPM drives

Overall Review: White label Helium Drives at 5400 RPM. PERFECT for backup running about 170 MB/s. I used to have Seagate External hard drives but when they went to 8TB, their reliability and speed went down. Switched over to these and never looked back. Bought several 8TB and 10TB versions for server backup which then is offsite backup. Highly Recommend!!

Most Critical Review

Started off Great - went downhill

GAMDIAS Hephaestus GHS2000 PC Gaming Headset
GAMDIAS Hephaestus GHS2000 PC Gaming Headset

Pros: Great sound initially Loved the vibrations Long cord

Cons: 2 of 3 already failed with increasing static in ears Filled out warranty requests and have NEVER heard a peep from them

Overall Review: If the quality was there and they responded to service claims, they would be 5 star. Based upon support and short duration, do NOT buy at this time.

So far, so Good

Seagate Exos X14 14TB 7200 RPM 512e/4Kn SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5-Inch Enterprise Hard Drive (ST14000NM0018)
Seagate Exos X14 14TB 7200 RPM 512e/4Kn SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5-Inch Enterprise Hard Drive (ST14000NM0018)

Pros: Works Large Capacity 5 Year Warranty Better Value than Iron Wolf/Barracuda/14TB drives 7200 RPM Fast transfer rates

Cons: Cost - this will always be a complaint with someone!

Overall Review: Works perfectly in SuperMicro 847 case. Formatted is 12.733. Before anyone starts complaining, all manufactures state their capacity in TB meaning 14 TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. So a true TB is 2^40 power. 12.733*2^40 = 14 TB. Same is for WD, Hitachi, etc. So far, humming along just fine in Raid 10 Configuration. Used for Work System Backups off laptops so very fit for purpose.

Probably THE best PCIe NVMe drive out there

Eluktronics Eluktro Pro-X G2 500GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 1.3 Internal M.2 2280 3D NAND Solid State Drive (SSD) - TRO-500GB-PRO-X
Eluktronics Eluktro Pro-X G2 500GB PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe 1.3 Internal M.2 2280 3D NAND Solid State Drive (SSD) - TRO-500GB-PRO-X

Pros: Easy to install SUPER fast Boots up machine from power on through Windows screen in 5 seconds

Cons: Larger sizes in the future would be great!

Overall Review: Thinking about buying more of these as they are such a good deal.

What a disappointment

Corsair Gaming PBT Double-shot Keycaps Full 104/105-Keyset - Black
Corsair Gaming PBT Double-shot Keycaps Full 104/105-Keyset - Black

Pros: -Keys seem like they would be very durable

Cons: -They were on back order forever on here and other sites -They reduce brightness significantly -I wish I could have seen the keys sooner as the W looked great. The font is horrible for Home key, etc. In fact, they have three letter abbreviations -Not easy to type (granted I only replace a handful of keys, but weird feel to these

Overall Review: Newegg site is having issues, but I will certainly return these (good I purchased Premier). When my Gigabyte mechanical keyboard dies, I will simply replace the keys on my Corsar K70 with those from the Osium keyboard. The ONLY complaint with the K70 is they have on dual keys the dual item on the bottom, so hard to see in the dark which is why I wanted replacement keys.
