Paranormal

Ben C., Newegg
2 March 2013
  • Pros: Easiest installation over any other drive. Hands down... plug it in and boom it worked. After I had installed the 3TB IBM drive, the next morning I found that my computer grew legs, even arms(!) and installed a disco ball in the rec room and had the stereo blaring!!
  • Cons: I'm confused why the computer hadn't decided to use it's own Windows media player over the home stereo system.

Great price for a great product

  • Pros: I see that IBM hasn't lost their sense of humor. If you're not spending $1k for a HDD, yer just simply missing out on the greater things in life.
  • Cons: Cons? Not so much for this drive, but for other similarly sized drives, for not properly taking advantage of the consumer like IBM does. Seagate, Hitatchi, and the likes are just making it WAY too easy for people to build computer systems by not effectively gouging the consumers. SAD!

  • Pros: - Runs faster then Zeus's Lightning Bolt - Was able to store my entire collection of Blueray 1080p 3D Seasons 1 and 2 of My Little Pony friendship is magic with excellent transfer speeds. - Cat spilled milk on it while I was installing and it instantly dried up leaving no wet mess
  • Cons: - The vast beyondness of this hard-drive may lead to slow search times on Windows 7, But don't attempt to index the entire drive or you'll create a time paradox. - Your PC may gain sentience from having this hard drive installed, and may attempt to take over the world.

  • Pros: Really great drive a quite the great value!
  • Cons: Had a little difficulty finding room in my case to fit this 3.5' monster, but went over to home depot and got a hack saw and proceeded to make some more room by cutting out the upper section of my case.
