WD My Passport Ultra Metal Edition 2TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a very SOLID Drive. The metal reinforcement makes it seem like it would be durable, but it will still break due to the moving platters if dropped so be aware. The lights on the HDD are very dim in my opinion so they are non intrusive but still tell you when the disk is active so that is very nice. The HDD is a thick but small form factor so it will fit in a large pocket or easily into a backpack. The USB 3.0 Interface is fast but not as fast as it could be. There is 2TB of space that I have yet to fill. The included cord is small but due to the microusb standard you can find much longer cords that will work with this HDD. The HDD formats well to the GNU/Linux system and rsync so this makes it great as a backup system for linux servers.

Cons: The WD Applications/Programs are very bloated. They took my computer awhile to install. Some of the programs are in fact useful but some features are absolutely useless and intruding to the use of the program. The software likes to crash a lot. This is in fact a massive problem considering that it is used as backup software. I have a set of movies on a FTP Server. I setup the program to take the movies and port them to the External HDD when I add a movie to the FTP Server. Sometimes this would work and sometimes it wouldn't. Software is the biggest negative.

Other Thoughts: For some reason shipping took almost 2 weeks. The packaging info according to Newegg said it showed up to my Box but it was actually, after calling around, on the other side of the state.

CORSAIR Voyager Slider 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSL3B-32GB

* Good read speeds

Total read speeds was 122 MB/s with 0's

It is a tough casing and a protector for the connector.

Rubber feel on the outside is nice.

Horrid Write speeds but good read. I used this on USB 3.0

Overall, I would only use this as a backup Flash Drive

SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Mobile 3.5mm Connector Canal Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Price to Performance 08/01/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Mobile 3.5mm Connector Canal Headset

Pros: - The flat cord makes it easy to store and wrap up on a circular object. This effectively prevents any issues while wrapping it up.

- The sound range is great for a pair of 50$ Headphones.

- I would rate it a 7/10 for price to performance. This makes the headphones a great buy.

- The in-line mic is a great feature.

- The single button play/pause is also a great feature

- Comes with a carrying case. Very nice.

- Nice comfortable tips with different sizes included.

- Right Angle connector which I consider a great positive.

Cons: - The inline mic quality is not really that great sadly.

- Whenever touching the cord: It will make a loud scratch or thump sound due to it carrying the noise to the headphones. It is quite annoying.
It seems these headphones are oversensitive to movement.

Other Thoughts: Recieved these in the mail late it seems. UPS is doing a horrid job recently.
