This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D401TDB Black
Pros: price, size,
3yrs warranty (better than 2 from WD)
power adapter w/ loads of plugs in case you're traveling a lot...
Cons: usb cable could be longer but no big deal,
wanted a fully auto back up solution like I had w/ my old 2TB WD. This one has it too but not as good as wd's smartware
ppl at samsung need to check that wd software because it is ahead of this old win 95 looking thingy.. and what's with the miniature window? You supposed to pick the folders but the window size cannot be maximized so you kinda picking and moving around in a tiny window when you set it up..
Other Thoughts: obviously it's too early to say anything about the hdd itself.. hopefully it will keep up. unfortunately I only started to research hdd failure rates after I already ordered this... not cool Seagate... not cool...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 for Windows & Mac - Full Version
Pros: I use it to import (rename+backup @ the same time) then develop and export as full jpg.
LR4 is the best RAW developing/file handling software I ever used.
Its file management is priceless. Easy to use and quick.
You can easily rate, keyword, organize your photos.
If you don't want to invest into CS you can do most of the editing in LR.
Cons: It's better but not a life altering jump from LR3, so I was hesitant till i got a deal.. If that's where you are I'd wait for LR5 which should be out soon.
Blurb was a mistake do deal with. I made several books with them and their QC is practically nonexistent. Some books -in the very same order - were ok some total cr... Why would a good company risk their name to partner up with such a low quality business I'll never know..
Other Thoughts: Adobe needs to put their pricing policy in order!READ FULL REVIEW
