Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5

5 out of 5 eggs This would be my fifth, OK now my sixth, all other 5 are still working well. 07/12/2016

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB4000100 Black

Pros: Does what it says on the can. Not only that but very speedily too. From an SSD to the Seagate on a 24GB file I'm getting 160MB/s transfer rates.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have 5 of these drives used for various purposes in various settings and no issues with any of them. The oldest is a little over 18 months old. Just added another to my collection, I pick these up whenever they appear in sales, got this one for a little under a hundred.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Breathe new life into an old machine 07/01/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5" 240GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SP240GBSS3S55S25FR

Pros: Price is extremely reasonable
Good specs

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I checked this drive out on a modern i7 4700S based machine getting very close to the specified transfer rates. Like all TLC based drives it doesn't so too well with really big files, multiple 10s of gigabytes but this is not a big deal really and is par for the course with TLC. Once I had satisfied myself that this was a well specced drive I tasked it as a replacement boot drive for an ageing Q6600 machine I have. The install process was a bit convoluted, attaching the drive to one of the SATA II ports in the old machine resulted in it being spotted by the BIOS but not by the Device manager in Windows 10. Connecting it to a different port on the second SATA II chipset allowed Windows 10 to pick it up. Cloning the boot drive with AOEMI, took a little over 20 minutes. The machine was then shut down and the HDD drive taken out and the newly cloned SSD substituted, switch on. Faultless boot and rather than the approaching 2 minutes it was taking this beast to get to the desktop it now gets there in a little under 17 seconds. Job done! I am still not used to hard drives arriving in padded envelopes though! If you are looking to upgrade an older machine then an SSD is an excellent solution, and this SSD has capacity and cost effectiveness in spades. 5 eggs!

ORICO 2 Outlets Power Strip with Surge Protector, Built-in 5 Ft. Cord, 4 USB Intelligence Charging Ports (2*5V2.4A + 2*5V1A) for iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge, Nexus and More (TPC-2A4U-WH)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Long power cord
On/Off switch
Surge Protection
2.4A and 1A USB charging outlets

Cons: None really apart from I now see the 10 outlet one is the same price as the 2 outlet ones I just got.

Other Thoughts: The On/Off switch is a biggie with this item, one of my major issues with the discrete wall warts for tablets, phones etc is that they invariably get left in the wall whether or not there's a phone/tablet attached to them. The switch means that vampirism will be minimized, one improvement would have been two switches, on on the top for the USB ports and one at the side for the outlets.
