WD My Passport X 2TB USB 3.0 External Portable Gaming Hard Drive for Xbox One WDBCRM0020BBK-NESN
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This drive works great as an external storage unit on the XBOX One. Installation on the XB1 is extremely easy - you plug the USB 3.0 cable into the drive, and plug the other end into the USB port on the back of the console. Done! The XB1 formats the drive and you can now use it to store your large game library.

The drive's external black plastic finish is designed to match the cross-hatched design of the top of the XB1, so it looks nice sitting on top of the console. The cord is short, but long enough to connect to the back of the XB1.

Speeds are fine, but do not seem like an improvement over the stock internal XB1 drive. This is a 5400 RPM drive (not 7200), which is the same rotational speed as the stock XB1 drive.

The drive comes pre-formatted as NTFS, so it also connects to a Windows PC natively. Due to Windows formatting, the drive shows up with 1.81 TB of usable storage. You can use this drive as a normal external USB 3.0 drive on a PC. Speeds seem on par with other external 5400 RPM USB 3.0 drives. Real world file copies moved at speeds between 60 MB/sec - 85 MB/sec.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This drive is marketed by WD as being "tweaked for gaming performance," but I do not notice any speed improvements over the internal XB1 drive, or any other external 5400 RPM USB 3.0 drive.

Crucial 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4-17000) Desktop Memory Model CT4K8G4DFD8213
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I purchased these on another website, but I wanted to share my review of these memory modules here on Newegg.

I purchased the 32GB (4x8GB) kit and installed it in my ASRock x99 WS motherboard. I had to flash the bios on the motherboard to the newest version in order for all four of the RAM sticks to be recognized. To get the motherboard to boot initially, I pulled all of the sticks out except for the first one in the first memory slot. I was then able to flash the BIOS to the most recent version.

After doing this, the RAM loaded up fine and is running stable. I plan to buy another 32GB kit down the road when the prices drop a bit.

Cons: None.

OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-480G 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The Arc 100 is working great in my new high-end LGA 2011-3 workstation.

The drive has been reliable and fast. Using Crystal Disk Mark, I benchmarked the read and write speeds of the drive at 450 MB/sec, which is on-par with other Sata III (6GB/sec) SSDs I have owned in the past.

480GB is a perfect amount of space for lots of apps and games. I run a ton of editing, motion graphics, and 3D content creation programs and I still have plenty of room to spare on this drive.

Cons: None.
