Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000BR with Cherry MX Brown Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Excellent Price, but Prone to Failure 04/15/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard RK-9000BR with Cherry MX Brown Switch

Pros: Newer versions seem to have some epoxy under the USB connector on the board, which does seem to help a lot with preventing breakage on the solder joints since the solder isn't directly handling any movement stress.
Also, the RMA process is a breeze for replacing failed units covered by warranty (and the RMA team is very helpful)

Cons: Older unit:
-USB port broke - repairs ended up requiring me to solder wires from the cord directly to the board.
-Key/Switch Broken: Asterisk key on NUM pad has stopped functioning, entirely, and looks like it will require soldering repair.

Newer Unit:
-Key/Switch Broken: Minus key on NUM pad broken. Thankfully this one is under warranty, so this is being processed as an RMA as of now.

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2 of these before I started having issues. I would not purchase these again if I could go back - save up, and go for something higher quality, even if it means spending nearly double.

Seagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Enclosure and Drive both failed 12/01/2013

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Excellent performance when functional! Was a good price at the time as well.

Cons: Enclosure failed within the first half year of use. HDD also failed in an alternate enclosure before reaching a full year of use.

Other Thoughts: Purchased the 2TB model of this exact enclosure (same drive model/revision as well, aside from capacity)

Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Failing after 8 Months of Use 11/25/2013

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV3000100

Pros: Excellent pricing at the time, drive performed well while it worked, and looked nice.

Cons: Drive failure after 8 months - no disk errors reported in Windows until the day of failure. Unfortunately not all data was covered by my backups either...
Also, this is the 3rd Seagate drive in a row to fail on me... Whilst my Samsung and WD drives are going strong all the while.
