This review is from: ARRIS SURFboard SB6141 8x4 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
Pros: Got it on sale for $30 cheaper on cyber Monday. It's not Comcast. Upload speed increased.
Cons: White and bright blue light. Download speed did not increase.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to get rid of Comcast modem/router that they actually gave to us for free. No monthly fee.
As for cons I really don't like the white casing, even though I knew it was white when I
ordered it. the white casing actually adds to the activity light on the front of the modem making them shine like crazy. It illuminates my entire hallway upstairs in my house.
I have this paired with an ASUS router and d-link 8-port gigabyte switch. No lag or performance drops. Although I read some reviews that some owners got more download speed, as i did not, but i do notice that i do have smoother performance. I did gain upload speed. 4.2mb to 5.26..
Pros: Faster boot times, faster read/write speeds. Performance definitely increased for me. Running Win 10 x64 Pro.
Cons: I must say price, but not docking an egg. Shipping took a week.
Other Thoughts: I said price as a con only because there was a SD Ultra II 480GB for $160 on A*zon. But I heard wonders about the Samsung ssd's and have wanted this ssd for a long time. But like I said, didn't dock an egg, because it was pure choice.
I do recommend this ssd. My performance has increased a tad, my steam games like skyrim load quite a bit faster and when I run Malwarebytes or windows defender, the scan times dropped in half.
This review is from: TOSHIBA Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive HDWC240XK3J1 Black
Pros: 4TB, 7200rpm, usb 3.0
Cons: That hdd sound when its accessing.
Other Thoughts: Bought this external for my xbox one since I ran out of space and transferred all my games to it. 3.6GB usable and with all my games transferred, I still have 3.2GB free.
The 7200rpm definitely shows its stuff when loading games especially GTA 5 because on the xbox one internal it takes forever to load this game.
The hdd is a bit on the loud side when loading games, but not super loud like how others make it seem. It's a hdd, not ssd, its going to make sounds.
Also the blue light on the front that lets you know the drive is accessing is actually pretty bright. I was a bit surprised. Kind of lights up my entire game room. Lol
Overall I do recommend this. I love WD drives and this is the only drive I've ever bought for myself that isn't WD. Anyone who wants their games to load faster on the XB1, get this drive!
