SAMSUNG Spinpoint M9T ST2000LM003 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Great upgrade for notebook or HTPC build 10/10/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M9T ST2000LM003 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Notebook Hard Drive

Pros: I am pleased with this notebook hard drive, it gives you plenty of storage space from the boring standard 500gb hard drives that come in most laptops now days.
2 terabytes for your laptop is great means lots of space for all the music, movies, programs, and whatever else you want to keep.
I didn't get to test this on a notebook but did test it in my PC tower in one of my SSD mounting slots, tested it as a storage drive which it worked very well for and takes up very little space be perfect for a small home HTPC setup where you want the smallest footprint for space on your entertainment stand.
I also tested this as a main OS drive in my PC tower just to compare it to my 7200 rpm sata 3 drive since this is 5400 rpm sata 3, and was surprised that I didn't notice very much difference between the two in terms of boot times or operations of programs and such, so this would make a great drive to build a small mini ITX HTPC build.
I didn't compare it to my SSD drive as I know there wouldn't be much contest there.
Overall this drive works great on sata 3 for a pc or for a notebook upgrade.
It is stated that it is capable of being used to upgrade your PS4 I haven't tried that but, if so then for the price it would be a good upgrade for that too.
It reads and writes fast enough for everyday use and is quiet compared to a normal desktop hard drive.

Cons: I haven't found any cons for this drive so far, except my personal con that my wife wouldn't let me use her notebook to test it in so I had to pop it in an SSD slot in my PC tower but that has nothing to do with this drive lol.

Other Thoughts: All in all I recommend this drive for whatever use you might need it for and the price isn't bad either for a 2 terabyte notebook drive, also it is nice and slim so size is great also.

DEEPCOOL M3 Laptop Cooling Pad 15.6
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Nice cooling pad 09/03/2014

This review is from: DEEPCOOL M3 Laptop Cooling Pad 15.6" with 2.1 Speaker System 140mm Fan

Pros: This is a nice laptop cooling pad, has 2 usb ports and a micro usb port, nice 140mm size cooling fan.
Built in speakers that sound good for what they are, comes with speaker cable to connect to laptop and comes with usb cable.
built sturdy enough and looks nice too boot, cools laptops enough to keep that heat source down to a more minimal temperature.
Packaged well for shipping should mean you wont receive a damaged product when you receive it.

Cons: While I like this as designed for a 15.6 inch laptop I think it should be setup for a 17.3 inch laptop and usable for a 15.6 inch so you can have one cooling pad for either size laptop depending on what you have.

Other Thoughts: Overall I thought it to be a nice product that does the job it is designed for, and the built in speakers are a welcome bonus as most laptop cooling pads do not offer them.
It looks nice, sounds good, and cools well enough for it to be a laptop cooling pad that I would recommend to family, friends, or anyone looking for a nice laptop cooling pad.
So pick this up if you are in need of a decent colling pad for your high heat laptop.

CORSAIR Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFMINI3-32GB
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Basic usb 3.0 flash drive 07/25/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Mini 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFMINI3-32GB

Pros: This flash drive is quite small being a mini. It has brushed aluminum casing that looks nice, and a rubber piece with key ring loop attached. Seems durable enough even though I didn't put it through a rigorous test to see how long it lasts physically.
I did put it through plenty of read and write tests using it in usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports, using varying file sizes from 500mb up too 4gb.

USB 2.0 (4gb file)
read = 145 to 185 mb/s
write = 11 to 16 mb/s average time was about 3 minutes

USB 3.0 (4gb file)
read = 145 to 185 mb/s
write = 16 to 22 mb/s average time was about 2 and half minutes.

As you can see the read speeds between 2.0 and 3.0 were pretty much identical, while you do gain a little bit of write speed with usb 3.0 over 2.0, But not a whole lot.
On average the read speed of the 4gb file transfer to my SSD drive was about 10 seconds, and write speed of the 4gb file transfer from my SSD to flash drive via usb 2.0 or 3.0 was an average of 2 and a half minutes to 3 minutes.

The smaller files I used for this test were 500mb and 1gb the write speeds were the same usb 2.0 11 to 16mb/s and usb 3.0 16 to 22mb/s but with faster times, while the read speed of the transfers back to my SSD were virtually instant.

Cons: The only con I have with this 32gb mini flash drive is the inconsistent write speeds they were up and down, they would start at 44 to 60mb/s then drop down to 11 to 22mb/s depending on usb 2.0 or 3.0 and fluctuate up and down constantly. Hence the 4 egg review.

Other Thoughts: All in all if you want a usb 3.0 flash drive this will certainly do what you need it too.
It works fine for transferring files to and from PCs.
Its very small so its not an eye sore like some bigger flash drives, easy to store in pretty much any place you might need too.
As far as durability it seems to be rugged enough but as with anything only time will tell.
I recommend this mini flash drive, and its corsair so you get a great company to back your warranty to boot.
