SYBA  SI-ADA20155  IO Crest USB 3.0 to SATA 6G Cable Adapter for 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Reliable but NOT cheapest.... 08/17/2015

This review is from: SYBA SI-ADA20155 IO Crest USB 3.0 to SATA 6G Cable Adapter for 2.5" Hard Drives

Pros: Busy upgrading household pc's and needed another of these USB3 to SATA cable adapters. Spec'ing a spare I decided this time to purchase from another seller other than Newegg just to mix it up a bit. Found a identical cable at half the price on a bidding site. Downside I had to wait almost 2 weeks for this overseas shipment and delivery. My wait was rewarded with a perfectly functional cable which I will give to another family member per his want. If you can stand the wait consider using the alternative bidding site which uses paypal

Cons: Dropping $10 along with another $2 for shipping is kind of frivolous unless you have a emergency situation. For me, I could wait the 2 weeks just to pay half the price along with FREE shipping

Other Thoughts: All these imported cables Syba included are all practically made overseas in the same factory...why pay twice the price for the same quality?

Crucial BX100 CT500BX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: SSD pricing continually dropping and the occasional sale items pushed me into getting this 0.5 TB budget SSD. Sale price of $159 with FREE shipping (EggSaver shipping...ugh!) was further discounted by me using Visa checkout along with accessing Newegg via eBate.com bringing this new SSD down to $147...cheapest I could get as of this day

Cons: Spec for spec it's NOT a genuine Samsung Pro however you cannot beat paying $147 for a 0.5 TB SSD. No cloning s/w provided however at this day and age there are now many FREE cloning and backup utilities out there which will save you your hard earned money. Clonezilla or AOMEI BackUpper utilities for us presently...easy, reliable but more importantly, FREE!

Other Thoughts: Priced the latest Acronis True Image s/w however it was not going to happen since it appears having to pay for a 1-seat activation of Acronis was simply not cost effective for our household. I still looking for a 1TB SSD but refuse to pay in excess of $300...will wait patiently as SSD pricing continually dropping...maybe late this year!

Acronis True Image 2015 Unlimited - 1 Device
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs There are alternatives to this! 08/17/2015

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 Unlimited - 1 Device

Pros: If you are a filthy rich elitist then consider purchasing Acronis

Cons: I've been a faithful Acronis disciple since 2009 however there comes a time when I had to seek alternative methods to backups and especially cloning. Out family purchased Acronis 2009 at the time of it's release simply because there were not too many easy to use, cost effective but more importantly reliable methods to clone and accomplish backups. Acronis served our family well having been able to be installed on WinXP, Vista, Win7 but NOT Windows 10 Pro 64-bit upgrade. What was shocking was the fact you could now only install the newer releases of Acronis on 1 pc...3 pc's meant purchasing 3 copies of Acronis. This was not going to happen especially since our household only had a need once possibly twice per year if our pc's got infected. This one greedy selling point now pushed by Acronis pushed me finally to investigating freeware...AOMEI's backupper and Clonezilla now is our favorite backup/cloning utility....no costs whatsoever, easy to use even without reading the recommended documentation but more importantly FREE. Acronis!...do away with the 1-seat license, horrible activation schema and you might possibly get me back as a customer. I won't even talk about your terrible support...paying for asking a simple support question? ...seriously?...Shame on you Acronis

Other Thoughts: AOMEI BackUpper rocks!
