OCZ ARC 100 ARC100-25SAT3-240G 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 3 year warranty - Excellent!
Speeds - Excellent!
Ease of transition - Some issues but nothing to do with the drive.
Price – The progressive fall of the prices of SSDs over the years is very gratifying. I paid $120 for a Kingston SSD Now 64GB drive 6 years ago

Cons: None that I have found, which is a good thing!

Other Thoughts: The drive itself is flawless and I’m very satisfied with the Read Write performance it is giving. Not quite up to the quoted spec but the discrepancy is probably down to the age of the installed system. I used it to replace a Toshiba 128GB SSD and the OCZ more than matches that for speed getting around 410 MB/s Read and 425 MB/s write, according to Crystalmark. My only problem with the transition was the inability of any cloning software to actually do what it said on the box. Eventually had to do some jiggery pokery and mess about with Easy BCD to get it to transfer my system in a bootable fashion. However, as I said this is more to do with Windows and UEFI than anything that can be laid at the drive’s door. Over all, excellent little drive, great performance and a 3 year warranty to boot!

Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (H2G2-42)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 3rd one 12/04/2014

This review is from: Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (H2G2-42)

Pros: Simple effective tech, does what it should and does it well.

Cons: Local media streaming apps would be the clincher, there are a few that will do it (Plex and Avia IIRC), but it's not as idiot proof as it needs to be.

Other Thoughts: I love these things, I have 3 dumb TVs in my house each with a googlecast plugged into it. The grandkids love the fact they can cast their minecraft (groan) videos onto the big screen. I like the fact I have another doohickey to play with

Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Very Comfy Cans 12/01/2014

This review is from: Corsair H1500 USB Connector Circumaural Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Robust, meaty sound, very good bass for a pair of headphones, excellent for gaming and a huge improvement over the built in options on my laptop for general sound applications (Skype etc.).

Cons: Only con I found, apart from the size of the headset making you look like a sound engineer from a sixties recording studio, but then I'm an old fuddy duddy, was the placement and design of the controls on the cord. No matter what I did I was constantly leaning on it and alternately blasting my eardrums and killing the sound.

Other Thoughts: Messing about with these in a PC environment I found that they were a pleasure to use and to wear. I’m not a big fan of earbuds, they tend to hurt my ears and also for some reason give me a headache with prolonged use. This headset did neither, I wore them for an extended period of time listening to music, Skypeing with friends and also attempting to survive more than a few minutes in a few online games. I did not at any time feel any discomfort from wearing them, although the first time a few of my Skype contacts saw them they were wondering if my hearing had gone completely, they did remark, however, on a marked improvement on the sound quality they were getting at their end of the call. I loaned the H1500s to one of my Grandsons to see what a younger generation thought of them. Within an hour or so he was sold and was quite persuasive in his arguments about what should be pride of place in his stocking come the Christmas season, namely a pair of Corsair H1500s. His reasons were 1) they looked cool, 2) they are very comfortable to wear, 3) explosions sounded a whole lot better, 4) he could actually make out a lot more cussing/conversation than he could normally (not sure what his mom will make of that) and 5) they were way cooler/better than what he was used to. So a product that pleases two users with vastly different computer experience and ages. 5 eggs… no quibbles!
