Seagate Hybrid Drives ST500LM000 500GB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When I first installed this on my wifes laptop neither of us were impressed with the abilities of this "sshd" the boot times seemed about the same and there was no real change in the overall speed of the windows or its apps launched. Then after my wife used it for a few weeks I borrowed it to do the bills and I was ASTONISHED to find that it woke up in only a few seconds and when my web browser launched it came up almost instantly! My wife didn't notice the change as much but for me (who didn't use it for a few weeks) the difference was like night and day!!

Cons: If I wanted to complain about something (the reason it's just below 5 eggs) is that it takes a few weeks for the drive to copy the most used data to the ssd portion and begin working faster. other than that this is a fine drive and well worth the cost.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that if you get this drive it will take some time and when you first start using it there's a good chance programs and boot times my be extended as it's copying that information over to the ssd. give it time and it WILL speed up on you.

TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: There are plenty of reviews that show the "hard data" (30mb transfer on a gig network and many simultaneous connections hardly slow it down) of these switches so I will focus on the more physical aspects of the switch. The switch is sturdy and a sold metal not cheap and plasticy like some of the competition. I had cat6a cable connected to the switch (similar in size and stiffness to coax cable) and they were only SLIGHTLY too stiff and heavy for it to sit flat on the edge of a table. Most cat5e cables will never be able to move this little rock.

Cons: none really. you COULD gripe about the price but you tend to pay more for higher quality materials so...

TP-LINK TL-SG108 Unmanaged 10/100/1000Mbps 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch, Metal Case, Power-Saving
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is an excellent desktop switch for any home use and all but high level corporate use. I saw no changes in speed from the netgear switch I was using previously and it only had 5 ports to use. I am also a big fan of the metal shell for this because alot of the cheaper switches *cough netgear cough*
don't like to stay in place when using a good cat5e much less a cat6a cable. this switch was heavy enough to stay exactly where I put it even when loaded with 6a cable on 6 of the 8 ports.
I love the fact that is supports QoS (quality of service) which means it pairs perfectly with any newer router as most support QoS now.

Cons: absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't too concerned with the power saving aspect of this switch so I didn't spend much time testing that. I did notice though that the dc adapter pulled less amps (.7 as opposed to 1.0 if memory serves) than most of the other switch power adapters i've seen.
