- Seagate 2TB Hard Drive for $60
Seagate (ST2000DM001) 2TB Hard Drive for $72, and code ESCETGJ23 applies $12 off in the cart.
According to the Newegg reviews, many of these Seagate 2TB hard drives have problems with reliability.
As one reviewer writes, many of the Seagate 2TB drives care made in completely different ways, while keeping the same model number.
Some drives are just not reliable, and we had one fail last year.
If you have a server and want RAID, check out the cheap 3Ware/AMCC 9650SE RAID Cards available through Ebay for around $20.
They use special cables called "Mini-SATA to 4 SATA Cables".
They are old cards, only support hard drives up to 2TB each, and not compatible with SSDs (because they lack "TRIM" for keeping SSDs defragmented), but are great quality for reliable RAID.
We had two in servers for the last 7 and 9 years, and about to set up a third.
If you plan to buy a bunch of computer equipment soon (building/upgrading a PC, buying computer equipment for your technology business, etc), consider Newegg Premier for free for 3 months when downloading the Newegg app.
Before building a new server last week, we signed up to Newegg Premier.
Not only did we get our orders fast, but Newegg also covers any return shipping labels and restocking fees.
In 10 orders, one hard drive was faulty and a motherboard was incompatible with our server, so Newegg sent us the a pre-paid return shipping label and processed our returns the day they received them.
So if you are placing a bunch of orders or under a time crunch, Newegg Premier can be a good deal.
And, they are selling a Samsung 950 Pro 256GB PCI-Express Card for $172 through the Newegg mobile app.
It shows up as $182, but changes to $172 when you use the Newegg app on a mobile device.
This is one of the fastest SSDs money can buy.
It installs into a PCI-Express x4 or x16 slot inside a PC, and gives up to 2,200 megabytes per second (2.2 GBps) read speed.
Facebook uses similar PCI-Express flash drives in their servers, because they are incredibly fast at reading and writing data from so many users.
