Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB USB 3.0  Portable External Hard Drive STDR2000100 Black
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a 9mm tall drive. The internal drive is the M9T.
I use these to upgrade PS4's hard drives.
As of the 1.71 firmware update from SONY for the PS4 it's been working perfectly.
Earlier than that their firmware did not support the drive for some reason.
It also works great in compatible notebooks as well, I will probably make it the third drive in my Dell Precision 6600 soon.

Cons: I can only get the external drive from Newegg and not the internal only.

5 out of 5 eggs Pretty Great 06/29/2014

This review is from: Hyperkin RetroN 5 Retro Gaming System, Black

Pros: Excellent video output. The ability to toggle Scanline generation is great, most games look best with them on and it helps the scaling effects look better IMHO. The included controller is rounder than it looks and though there is little travel in the buttons THEY ARE MICROSWITCH. So, they are quality buttons. The control stick reminds me of the Neo Geo CD or the old Atari 7800 redux controller Atari released towards it's end. This is ALSO microswitch. It's better than it looks for shooters.
Controller ports work great, assigning controllers default maps is awesome, too much great things here to name, all working great.

Cons: The carts are a bit tough to pull out in the beginning. They go in fine, i recommend pulling out slow and steady without placing any back and forth force on it, you probably will break something that way, your fault. Does not have standard USB port to hook in pc devices or a pc cd/dvd rom to play SEGA CD games, that would have been a nice option.

Other Thoughts: I like this thing, i like it ALOT.

It brings all of your old home games up to the video quality of an arcade machine. If you have a large LCD/Plasma then it looks like an arcade display now!!!
No video lag, no issues i've seen and i'm a discerning jerk most of the time to behonest. I spend weeks calibrating my new TV's to the right white level and to my liking, pretty much a perfectionist jerk sometimes , i'll openly admit it.,
This box is mostly all I could ask for.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.4GHz LGA 775 BX80562Q6600 Processor
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Relentless Performanced

Cons: Legacy bus system

Other Thoughts: I bought this in Jan 2008. It's been running OC'd at 3.2GHZ since burn in day. I have a CoolerMaster 110mm fan copper flower style hsf on it and it's never gotten hot to the touch.
It's going to be a server/router going forward, but, slap in a good video card and it can still run the most demanding games.
