Reviews

from completed build Kaveri Box - Cheap Gaming Rig

Also scrapped a 500GB Caviar Blue from my old rig. Eh, fast enough and gets the job done.

The old 60GB HDD really needed to go, and more capacity is needed.

College assignments only..! 500GB should be enough although the 1TB's price is not that far from the 500GB..needed to keep to my budget as much as possible ;_;

from completed build Budget Processing Powerhouse

Pulled this guy out of an older computer I was given. A little bit older, but I'm planning on getting a second identical one during Black Friday and RAID them. But so far, so good.

Changed Windows %temp% and my user profile directories over to this drive so the SDD wouldn't see as many read/writes hopefully.
