Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Incredible Device - When Modded 01/14/2014

This review is from: Seagate Wireless Plus STCK1000100 1TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In Wi-Fi Streaming

Pros: Worked as advertised out of box. I purchased it because of it's ability to receive modded firmware which adds numerous features.

Cons: Seagate could easily implement numerous features, but doesn't invest in doing so for some reason

Other Thoughts: Worked well out of box. Flashed to modded firmware from HackSeagateSatellite.com (which adds tons of features) and can't be more happy with it.

Mod's Added Features Include:
- New Interface
- Dropbox Sync
- iTunes Server
- WiFi Passthrough
- Eye-Fi / RAW Image Server
- IIS / Web Server
- plus many more

Kensington K33497US PowerBolt Duo USB Car Charger
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs If you own an iPhone & iPad, You Need This! 07/30/2013

This review is from: Kensington K33497US PowerBolt Duo USB Car Charger

Pros: - Charges iPhone & iPad at the same time
- Charges most other (if not all) 5v / USB products

I own an iPhone and iPad which I use all day long. Besides my nightstand, I can only charge them in the car. This is the only adapter I've ever used which could charge each of them at the same time. Great for trips, too!

It's physically possible to connect an iPad to most other adapters, but most do not have the additional amps to work with an iPad. When on a trip and someone is using the iPad while charged in, It delivers enough current to keep the iPad battery from draining (keeps it at the charge it was at) when the brightness is all the way up, bluetooth and wifi are on, and games / apps are being used. When not in use, it charges. The charge isn't as fast as an electrical outlet, but not terribly slow, either.

I have a Mophie Air Case for my iPhone 4S which contains an extra battery. It allows the phone to sync & charge both batteries (iPhone and case) when plugged up to this adapter via a micro USB cable.

Cons: - USB Ports are brittle
- Not very sturdy

The first adapter I had lasted about 8 months. One day I unplugged a cable from it and a small piece of white plastic came out. I found out this was from inside the USB port. Working in IT, I've never had this happen before. I've had the second one for 2-3 months now and so far so good. I try to keep the cables dedicated to my car now therefore usually not having to unplug them from the adapter as often

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you own and use an iPhone and iPad (this works with all models of each), then get this adapter. It may not be perfect, but after extensive research, it's the best one out there which will charge both simultaneously.

Zalman ZM-VE300-B Aluminum Alloy, Acryl, Poly Carbonate 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Works as advertised - able Mount & Boot numerous ISOs as virtual disc drives via enclosure's interface and install OS's, boot to Linux Live distros, boot to PC repair tools, etc

- Supports virtual disc drive, standard hard drive, & both together

- Glad it is sold as enclosure only. Rather buy this and add drive I want instead of forced to buy bundled / integrated 320gb drive

Being a multiboot fanatic and big geek (surprise), I've always wondered why enclosures haven't ever offered a method to virtualize ISOs to boot directly to them. Finally, this enclose came out.

I've had it almost a year now and currently have a 750gb Hybrid drive installed (easy process.) I use it to install OSs (Windows, Linux, etc) about 20% of the time it's used and 80% for general storage.

The case comes with a pleather sleeve which so far has protected it better than most. I also like the light, but strong aluminum body. The display is bright and easy to read.

It copies files over USB 3.0 / 2.0 just as fast as other drives (much of that depends on drive you have inside, too) I like it and would purchase another.

Cons: - No internal battery - Power is received from USB port and must be on to select / mount ISO. Computers POST too fast for anyone to do this and rebooting cuts off power on most

- Sometimes difficult to show on boot menu

- Limited # of ISOs you can select from (40?)

- Do not expect to boot & install OS over USB 3.0 speeds as most PCs do not support this. 2.0 works (Mostly PC / OS fault on this one)

Other Thoughts: Suggestions for next model. Most important are at the top:

1. Internal rechargable battery for mounting ISO before turning on PC or plugging in (Would fix most my grief)

2. OLED or display with more resolution

3. Ability to add more than ~40 ISOs to ./iso folder (ISOs you may choose to mount via enclosure's LCD)

4. Built in Wi-Fi... Not that I feel it's a missing feature -but - I also own a Seagate Wireless Drive (1tb) which I have swapped the firmware out with to provide more features. If I could combine the two drives, it would be incredible. Wasn't going to add this, but why not?
