This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D501TDB Black
Pros: At the time of purchase it was one of the cheapest options to get 5 tb of storage. I ordered two because it was on sale and such a great deal. It was setup and was showing all the 5 TB of space on each of the drives.
Cons: I had the drives for about 3 months when one of them started to have disk read errors and All the data I loaded on that disk is now gone. :( I usually don't trust new disks till they have been used for a week. Right after I started using it It went out.
Other Thoughts: It seems that right after I ordered it, lots of negative reviews started appearing. I had been using it for several weeks so I figured that the two I got were the exception but I was just being hopeful. Now that I have had the drives for 3 months they have passes their newegg warranty. I now have to see what Samsung can do to help.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks good
Cons: It either was dead on arrival or is a sandforce SSD. I could not find any information on if it does or does not support the Flush Cache (E7h) command. I will try to return it because it will not work for me.
Other Thoughts: I wish newegg would provide more information about the product we are buying. For example what type of msata drive would be very useful to their customers.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit (Full Version)
Pros: Love the new tiles, and the faster bootup. The new bootup time is now on par with Linux options. Another great improvement is if you have a large file transfer the option to pause it has been added. Great feature!!. Plus Windows 8 is like having a table and PC in one.
They also redid the code for the dual screens and it works better with some older games. For example. The older game C&C Generals with Zero Hour did not work in windows 7 but works fine in windows 8.
Cons: The cons are its another OS, so not all software are ready for it and some old software has problems. I had issues with Pcap network drivers that work with wireshark, and a few other apps I cant think of. But it will just take time to get the software updated to the new version.
Other Thoughts: Pleased with the purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
