Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STBV5000100
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs for external use only 08/05/2014

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STBV5000100

Pros: the packaging on this drive looked nice but is not the best I've seen. the box is thin and flimsy. the inner packaging is more sturdier but in total the packaging will suffice cause it will be thrown away anyway. the drive itself is a standard black box with with the Seagate logo and a blue light its not ugly but not the prettiest either like I said standard. the drive is a massive 5 tbs and the speeds where decent I got a 189 mbps for smaller files and 109 on large ones. the biggest file I moved was 399 gb took about an hour which is not to bad for almost 400 gbs. this drive is a massive drive great to hook to a router and create a nas server or storage for multiple pc's and he price is well worth what you get so I would definetly buy for an external drive

Cons: now on to the bad news this drive is for external use only. I took mine out and hooked it in to my pc and it slowed my system to a I formatted it and it sped it up but I lost 2.6 terabytes ...the drive is internally partitioned most like the 2 partitions are raid internally and when I formatted the drive it deleted the raid driver and left only one side usuable which is about 2 tb ...I looked on seagates sight for the raid driver or some sort of reinstall packet or recovering software the give you some software but it doesn't help like I said its for external use only

Other Thoughts: I wonder why they didn't just use a 5 tb hdd inside the drive...I think its so no one would take them apart and put them inside their pc internally which may void some sort of warranty

GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-SLI LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: this is the second Z97 board I own. my first board is a gaming version, this board is somewhere between a gaming version and a performance version. So it can basically do both or in essence anything you want it for. it has some really great features its compatable with gen 4 intel chips and the newly released 5 gen intel chips...which is a first for intel that I know of. also it has sata express and on board m.2 sata connector(10 gb's) dual bios, 2 way sli/crossfire support. the board's size it kinda small it not quite full atx sized . but I put in my test and hooked it up with no problem what so ever. I used an h100i to cool and it cools around 28c . the board overclocks real good and the bios is simple I only had to refer to the manual twice..i don't currently have an m2 ssd or sata express to test out but needless to say the board is future proof for awhile . it looks sweet in my build and runs like a dream...I totally recommend this board for a budget intel build

Cons: the only cons I can think of are it could have a couple more sata ports simply because sata express hasn't taken hold just yet or m..2 as well. the board is a couple inches shorter width wise which congests the board a little. also if you look at the other boards in the Z97 line up it looks a lot different looking not as cool looking as the others...but some people won't care about that

Other Thoughts: here's my test rig

gigabyte Z97-SLI

CORSAIR Voyager Slider 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSL3-32GB/RF
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs an awesome flash drive 06/22/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Voyager Slider 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSL3-32GB/RF

Pros: this drive has solid construction and is pretty fast plenty of space and in general an awesome flash drive

Cons: the only cons I can think of really are its has a pretty big body or frame its not a small flash drive and although its fast its not a fast as their voyager drives and when sliding it out you have to your thumb and fore finger right on the top and bottom you can't just slide it out from any where or slide it back in from anywhere

Other Thoughts: the benefits hughly out way any thing negative about it for the price it can't be beat really
