Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Really cool little drive 06/24/2013

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 Blue Portable Hard Drive

Pros: Very attractive little drive, and transfers very quickly when plugged into a USB3 port. Form factor is nice: compact and sleek.

Cons: None so far.

Pros: Cheap, sturdy, well-constructed, simple assembly.

Cons: The low-profile design makes it very difficult to get to the ports at the back of the TV, or the knobs to adjust the angle. I recommend plugging in cables prior to mounting the TV to the rack.

Also, the drywall anchors provided were sub-par. When I went to mount the TV, the plate began to pry loose and didn't look like it was going to hold. Recommend either using a stud finder to mount in studs, or going to home depot to get some sturdier anchors.

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again, I would probably spend a little more and get a more adjustable model, but this will suit my needs enough so that there's no reason to replace it.

Acer Laptop Aspire V5-171-9661 Intel Core i7 3517U (1.90 GHz) 8 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 11.6

Pros: This has the power of a workstation in the package of a netbook. With a Core i7 processor and 8 GB of memory, it's very fast and very powerful, but also very small, light, and portable.

Cons: Obviously, you should make sure you're OK with having such a small screen (11.6") on your laptop before you consider this. Also, I'm not crazy about the new UI on Windows 8, but I can't fault the hardware for that. The battery life could be better, but it's completely adequate for my needs.

Other Thoughts: I stuck with a 5-star rating here, because the only drawbacks I see are limitations directly related to its size (which is something you should be conscious of if you're considering a specialty laptop like this), and its OS, which is Microsoft's fault and not Acer's.
