Seagate Momentus ST9750420AS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Decent price for the format.

Cons: I have had two of these fair completely. The first one was still under warranty and was RMA'd without issues. The replacement RMA drive failed just 29 days later!!!

Other Thoughts: I used to praise Seagate for quality and low failure rates. Unfortunately the trend over the last year has been bad. I've had to RMA 6 drives this year alone.

3 out of 5 eggs Great Brewing Hardware, Terrible Pot Design 06/04/2013

This review is from: DeLonghi 14-Cup Drip Coffee Maker DCF6214T

Pros: The design of this unit is excellent. I love the front-loading tray for water and grounds. Everything just works, couldn't be better, as far as the unit goes.

Cons: The spout design on the coffee pot is terrible. Every single cup of coffee poured wastes about another 3rd of a cup on the floor. Absolutely terrible design flaw. This clearly wasn't tested in an office environment.

Other Thoughts: I would get this unit again, IF the pot spout is redesigned to avoid dripping and drooling all over the place. It is so bad, that I have considered replacing this perfectly good unit.

Acer Laptop Aspire V3-731-4649 Intel Pentium B960 (2.2 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very cost-effective, good laptop for average use (office, surfing, etc.).

Cons: UEFI / BIOS boot options are horrible. Comes with Windows 8 by default, and is set in UEFI mode. This precludes any booting from anything other than the Windows Boot Manager. Switching over to BIOS mode (legacy mode) will let you boot from any device you like, however, the windows partition is now unavailable. I suppose this is done for security reasons, but it prevents any kind of maintenance should there be problems with Windows. As a computer service provider, my customers come to me to get these things fixed in a cost-effective manner. With this laptop I will now have to tell them that the only resort is a more expensive Windows reinstall. Not good.

Other Thoughts: I like the minimalistic simplicity of the acer laptops. Aside from Macbooks, they are my preferred Windows laptop -- no extra doohickies and buttons all over the place. Bare necessities. Nice.
