WD 1TB White My Passport Ultra Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBGPU0010BWT-NESN
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Good external drive, good brand 04/10/2016

This review is from: WD 1TB White My Passport Ultra Portable External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBGPU0010BWT-NESN

Pros: sleek simple design
very portable
1TB capacity
Comes with a very short 19" USB 3.0 cable
USB 2.0 compatible
LED light which indicates on, and flickers when drive is being accessed

The drive comes with a user manual in pdf, and a WD Software Installer which includes Backup (backs up your files to the drive or the cloud), Security (set a password on your drive using 256-bit AES encryption), Drive Utilites (configure and diagnose the drive), and Drive Status Tool (view the status of your drive). The drive stays pretty cool even though there is no ventilation.

Cons: The cable could be longer. It's not even 2' in length.

Other Thoughts: One reviewer mentioned the USB cable is proprietary. The cable is NOT proprietary. It is a standard USB 3.0 cable that you can buy anywhere. And any standard USB 3.0 cable will work with this drive.

The drive speed is 5400RPM. Using ATTO Benchmark and plugged into a USB 3.0 port of an Intel i5 core processor with 32GB of RAM, a 1GB file read speed averaged 113MB/s, write speed averaged 110MB/s. Plugged into a USB 2.0 port, a 1GB file read speed averaged 34MB/s, write speed averaged 27MB/s.

Western Digital has always made decent products. I would definitely recommend this drive.

LG Electronics PV150G LED Minibeam Projector with Embedded Battery and Wireless Screen Share
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: auto keystone
4 different projection positions (front, rear, ceiling-mounted front, ceiling-mounted rear)
USB input
HDMI out
internal battery
headphone jack
remote

The source is manually selected. The source is greyed out when there is no signal.

It has very nice features. It can play music, movies, view Microsoft office files (in older and newer file extensions: doc and docx, xls and xlsx) powerpoint, word, excel, pdf, and images directly from USB. It uses Picsel File Viewer to view powerpoint slides, word docs, excel spreadsheets, and pdf documents.

Cons: It's not bright enough to view well at 8 feet. The room must be dark to get a nice crisp image.

Other Thoughts: This is nice for on the go, for vacations, etc. For 100 lumens, it's a bit pricy.
