WD My Passport Ultra Metal Edition 1TB USB 3.0 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Not as fast as the Non-metal editions for my application 07/14/2015

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra Metal Edition 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" Portable Hard Drive WDBTYH0010BBA-NESN

Pros: Durable AF. You could probably throw this thing off a 30 story building and still retain your data. But don't.

Cons: I buy these 1TB usb3.0 drives to put an ISCSI disk image for offsite backups. The non-metal editions that I use, which both benchmark at the same speed, seem to run 80% faster than this model. I'm getting around 60MB/s via 1000BASE-T, where as I can pull around 100-110MB. Not sure if it's the cluster size or I/O pattern I'm choosing on my defaults (which work fine on the others), but the fact that there is nothing different, other than the models and the issue still exists, is annoying..

So, in the future, I will avoid the metal editions.

I deduct 1 star for them not using an identical drive in the non-metal edition.

2 port 2A USB USA AC Plug Wall Charger For iPhone 4S 5 / iPad 4 Mini /SAMSUNG S4 S3/ HTC One M7 M8 2 Plus
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Has a 1 plug form factor and has two USB slots, on 2.1A and 1A

Cons: The device will not reach/maintain 2A power. I purchased for the small form factor for a raspberry pi thin client and the device constantly complained about power. I was wondering how they were able to achieve 2A power safely through the 1 plug design, considering Apple doesn't even do that.

Other Thoughts: I refuse to RMA this. I would like to think eating the cost will keep this out of the hands of someone like my grandma or mother, who'd leave it plugged in all day.

AP9827 - 6' Simple Signaling UPS Cable - USB to RJ45 - 940-0127E

5 out of 5 eggs Exactly what I needed 03/04/2015

This review is from: AP9827 - 6' Simple Signaling UPS Cable - USB to RJ45 - 940-0127E

Pros: OEM apc monitor cable for USB to RJ45 serial. I bought 30 UPS for my company on newegg. My brilliant assistant decided to throw away the box that had all the monitoring cables in it. Ugh... The money I saved shopping through newegg was a push after this mistake.... We live and we learn. Love newegg. Been using them for 13 years now.

Cons: None
