  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome 05/11/2015

This review is from: Nike Premier 6.0 R EV0791 Men's Sports Sunglasses

Pros: Better than I expected. Very comfortable, snug fit. Lightweight. UV protection. Retail price is too high, but sale price makes these worth it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Stylin'. Attractive sun glasses. Need these living in So CA. Shipping was reasonably fast and FREE. First class USPS. I submitted an email question to the seller and got an immediate response. Recommend and would buy again.

HP DVD Burner SATA Model 447310-001 LightScribe Support
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs This is a Samsung Drive 01/06/2015

This review is from: HP DVD Burner SATA Model 447310-001 LightScribe Support

Pros: Works. Windows System Information identifies this drive as a Samsung model TSSTcorp TS-H653Z. Unsure where Newegg came up with the HP model 447310-001.

The specs for the drive I received look like this:

Samsung TS-H653 16x DVD RW DL Drive General Features: Black bezel
•20x DVD+R write speed 20x DVD-R write speed 12x DVD-RAM write speed 48x CD-R write speed
•8x DVD+RW rewrite speed 6x DVD-RW rewrite speed 32x CD-RW rewrite speed 16x DVD read speed
•48x CD read speed

I needed a Lightscribe drive. This drive works fine. Just hope it last a while.

Cons: Some confusion about the model. Newegg listed no performance specs.

Other Thoughts: The shipping carton was excellent with a lot of foam padding to protect the unit during shipment. Ship time was slow. Took about ten days to receive it.

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

Pros: I wanted to use the OCZ ARC 240GB SSD as my boot drive. I have found the Apricorn ASW-USB 3.0 hard drive cloning device and included one step software I own to be exceptionally easy to use when I need to make a fast clone of my operating system drive. I have listed the Newegg link and would recommend this Apricorn device and included software to anyone wishing for a painless method to clone their hard drive(s). I cloned my existing 120GB Samsung EVO operating system drive to the 240GBGB OCZ ARC in virtually one step using this device. The entire procedure took less than 18 minutes.

APRICORN ASW-USB3-25 USB3.0 to SATA Adapter

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812161005

My system specs:

4770K
Gigabyte Z97 MB, Sata 6 onboard controller
16GB 1600Mhz. 7-8-8-24 RAM
Windows 7 64

I Ran ATTO Disk Benchmark Ver. 2.47 on the existing 120GB Samsung Evo.

Write: 417566 MB/sec.
Read: 551579 MB/sec.

Then the ATTO results on the OCZ ARC 240GB.

Write: 431965
Read: 499414

I ran the test several times. The OCZ ARC consistently performed at a higher rate of data transfer speeds where 'writing' to the drive was concerned. The smaller capacity Samsung EVO benched higher when 'reading' data. Pretty impressive performance by the 240GB OCZ ARC when compared to one of the more popular enthusiasts SSD's out there.

I downloaded the free OCZ toolbox. That download link is here:

http://ocz.com/consumer/download/firmware

The toolbox software is pretty basic. Other SSD toolbox software like Intel and Samsung are more comprehensive and offer user data software regarding health, benchmarking capabilities, etc. where the free OCZ toolbox does not.

Cons: No mounting bracket or screws are included. If you do not happen to have a mounting bracket handy when you open the package and find there is none, you can always use a zip tie to install the drive inside the case. Would be great if OCZ would consider including the mounting bracket and set screws with such a nice drive.

Other Thoughts: As far as performance, I felt the OCZ ARC stayed right there as far as the performance numbers when compared to my Samsung EVO. I was surprised and impressed by the excellent data transfer rates the drive provides and would recommend this drive to anyone seeking stellar performance out of their SSD. Especially at the sale price. I plan to eventually install the OCZ ARC 240GB in a new Core i5 touchscreen notebook I recently purchased. This drive would be a huge upgrade from the 500 GB 5400 rpm mechanical drive the unit came with.
