Seagate 1TB Backup Plus Ultra Slim Portable External Hard Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 Model STEH1000101 Gold
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: -1tb 2.5” 7mm HDD storage
-white led in corner
-Ultra thin!! 9.6mm thickness
-gold color textured metal top casing with circular dimples
-120MB/s write, 120MB/s read transfer speeds
-931GB after windows NTFS Format
-USB powered
-Micro USB 3.0 to USB 3.0 cable ~18”
-Quiet Design
-200gb OneDrive Cloud Storage included (2yr service)
-NTFS Driver available for MAC

Cons: 2yr warranty vs. 3yr warranty from competitor Western Digital My Passport
price as of review ~$69.99
No soft pouch or case included
No password protection in software

Other Thoughts: Aesthetically this external drive looks beautiful and has a very thin design. But what you are getting out of this product is merely visual. Yes its thin at 9.6mm, but 2.5” drives are already thin and lightweight to begin with. Once you get past the looks there is one disappointing feature: only a 2-yr warranty. Compared to Western Digitals My Passport Drives (3yr) this is not acceptable. Yes, a 1 year difference in warranty makes a huge difference given this is a portable drive and will be subjected to much more handling. Performance wise it is a typical 2.5” HDD read/write speeds at about 120MB/s. For the money, 1TB/$69 is very expensive and the 2TB model offers a better value at $99. Overall it works and looks good but warranty and longevity is a major concern. There are alternatives out there with software that offer password protection, better warranty, and a travel pouch for the same price.

Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Works Great but Not much improvement over standard HDD 06/05/2016

This review is from: Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -Newegg shipped in very protective plastic air wrap
-4TB is ~3.6TB after NTFS Format
-8GB MLC SSD Cache
-5 year warranty
-Competitively priced among standard HDD
-Slightly faster/load access times
-MB/s read/write speeds are about 33% faster than standard HDD

Cons: -Reliability a concern
-Speeds of 167MB/s read/write is not that much faster than typical HDD
-Read write latency similar to HDD

Other Thoughts: This is an interesting drive because of it’s hybrid feature. It’s faster than your normal Hard disc drive but not quite as fast as a SSD. For example a Caviar Black read and writes are about 120 MB/s read/write and a Samsung 850 Evo is about 500MB/s read/write, this drive is about 167MB/s read/write which is not that much faster than a standard 3.5” 7200rpm drive in terms of transfer rates. The only use I have for this is using it as a secondary drive for storage of files movies/music/photos files that are in abundance. I would still put your OS/programs on a SSD and Games on an SSD simply because of it’s superior access and read rates. This drive does come with a 5yr warranty but no one can say for sure how reliable it is because it is a fairly new type of drive. So far I have not encountered any issues. It works as advertised and is plenty of fast for my needs. I would definately routinely back this drive up, again you just don’t know the long term reliability. Based on my ownership it works great but just don't a huge performance improvement over your normal HDD.

Acer G257HU smidpx 25
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -picture quality is outstanding
-very bright
-117 ppi
-no blur noticed
-ips colors are accurate
-minimal bezel (nearly edge to edge)
-25" 2560x1440 is denser than 27"or28" at same resolution

Cons: -shaky stand
-no VESA mount
-plastic silver bottom bezel is not flush with panel
-a few dead pixels
-osd buttons on the bottom (a pain to use)
-ugly bottom bezel

Other Thoughts: This is a great panel with some engineering flaws. The stand is shaky, that means if there are any slight movements on the table whether typing or using the mouse quickly the vibration will get sent to the monitor and shake. The other cons are self explanatory. Apparently the Dell u2515h ($349) uses the same panel but better stand, VESA mounts, USB hub, and out of box color calibration. I would go that route and pay the extra $90.
