Pros: Quiet Operation
Decent Speed (For a HDD)
Cons: 3 Year Warranty (not 5 like WD Black)
Other Thoughts: The WD Blue (Caviar Blue) series are great little drives. I have bought several of them over the past few years and currently all my PCs have at least one in them.
The drive is cool and quiet and is decently fast although it isn't as quick as an SSD of course but for mass storage of games, files, photos and videos it is great. Especially as they can be had for around $50.
I currently use WD HDDs in all of my PCs as well as my NAS (WD Reds) and they haven't disappointed. My oldest WD HDD is pushing 5+ years and none have failed so far (knock wood).
I have only ever been disappointed with the WD Green drives (slow, higher failure rate it seems). I bought Seagate drives for a while (Barracudas in the 1, 1.5 and 2TB variety) and they, especially the 1.5TB, are garbage. Only one (a 1TB) still worked after two years. WD drives are in my experience much better.
The only thing is the warranty on the Blue is shorter than the Black. It is three years as opposed to five. This is annoying as functionally (IDC what anyone tells you. Facts are facts), the drives are the same and have the same performance. The Back just has a longer warranty and a $20 higher price tag. These drives can easily last 5 years so I think WD should through it on there but then there would be no reason to buy a black.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 16GB microSDHC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model MB-MPAGCA/AM
Pros: Fast Read and Write Speeds
Adapter is nice and works well
Cons: Umm too small for my sausage fingers?
Other Thoughts: Bought this to increase the storage capacity of my Galaxy S4. Ordered, it got here quick, I popped it in and it is working well. The read and write speeds are very fast and the camera on the phone feels more responsive. The packaging is nice and is a nice case for the card and the adapter.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WR841N Wireless N300 Home Router, 300Mbps, IP QoS, WPS Button
Easy Set Up
Cons: Speed Drops Quickly With Range
Gets a little warm
Antennas can get in the way
Other Thoughts: Bought this as a cheap replacement for an old Cisco Valet my Grandmother used for her laptop and Kindle.
The price was right and set up was very easy.
The router has good range, but the speed drops fairly quickly as you get farther away. Faster than other routers I've used. This isn't really an issue as she doesn't do much online and the link speed was still faster than what her internet connection was even at max range.
The large dual antennas on the back of the device are a little annoying and can prevent you from putting it on a shelf. It isn't as sleek as some routers out there and it gets a little warm.
Overall for the price I can't complain.
