Pros: Looks nice.
Cons: It is 1.5A max from a single USB port, and 750mA per USB port with 2 devices connected. Those numbers are plastered all over the product packaging. The Newegg product page is incorrect at the moment (shows 2.1A in numerous places). Even Thermaltake's website lists this as 1.5A max.
Other Thoughts: I'm sure it's a fine product if you are okay with a 1.5A output. That isn't enough to quick charge a tablet, and the 750mA x2 isn't enough to quick charge two smartphones concurrently either. Just FYI in case anyone who needed 2.1A output is considering this model.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive
Pros: Fast drive, nice clean looking enclosure. 2 year warranty is great so you can replace it under RMA after it dies of a self inflicted heat death.
Cons: I have no idea how this product ever made it to market. I can't fathom that Seagate wouldn't have done some basic temperature testing. If you set up SMART monitoring on this drive you'll get regular warnings about the temperature exceeding the max threshold. These drives basically cook themselves to death.
Other Thoughts: The enclosure needs to be completely redesigned for better airflow. There's a fast 7200rpm drive inside which the enclosure can't come close to cooling properly. If you don't monitor the SMART status everything will seem fine for a while. Do yourself a favor and set up monitoring, and run Seatools before your warranty expires.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: * Cheap
* Works perfectly
* Received quickly considering it was shipped from China
Cons: * None
Other Thoughts: This is a great OTG y-cable. It works perfectly for powered USB OTG with my Nexus 7 (e.g. watching movies off a usb thumb drive or external USB 2.5" hdd while simultaneously charging your device). Even though it was shipped from China I received the cable quickly.READ FULL REVIEW
