Corsair Neutron XT CSSD-N480GBXT 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Corsair Neutron XT 480GB SATA III 05/23/2015

This review is from: Corsair Neutron XT CSSD-N480GBXT 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This little thin light weight 480GB SSD pretty much nailed its top read and write speeds. When plugged into a SATA III slot on an Intel Z77 motherboard, according to ATTO disk benchmark suite, sustained write speeds of 540MB/s and read speeds of 560MB/S were almost instant. Basically this little drive reaches the highest possible speeds the current SSD hardware architecture can achieve. The next step up in speeds would come from the new PCIe SSDs which easily doubles the rate, not to mention pretty much doubles the price too.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Excellent drive, I could not be more happy or impressed. The life of the drive and energy efficiency is guaranteed. For those looking quick boot times, fast game loads or solid high resolution video streaming, this drive is for you.

New Nintendo 3DS XL Black
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs New Nintendo 3DS XL Black 05/14/2015

This review is from: New Nintendo 3DS XL Black

Pros: Love, love, love this handheld console. Yes, I am coming from the previous 3DS XL and this one is a big improvement. The 3D is so much better and very comfortable to look at for long periods of time. The faster processor also helps make games smoother to play. For example, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D plays choppy on the previous model. But now it plays perfectly. Same goes for all the first party games. I prefer the XL size versus the smaller 3DS. Its easier to physically handle and I like the larger screen even though the resolutions are the same.

Cons: Yes, the SD card is harder to get to, but I had no trouble replacing it. It would have been nice to have a higher resolution top screen. But higher resolutions don't necessarily make games more fun to play... I play the 3DS as much as my hardcore 4K 60Hz gaming PC. The last con I can think of is the system transfer. Nintendo does not allow the same downloads on multiple devices. It is required to do a system transfer to play downloads on a new device. I had no problem doing the lengthy transfer (but be sure to follow the instructions or you could lose everything).

Other Thoughts: I am in love with the new 3DS. I traded in my previous 3DS and have no regrets. It goes with me everywhere on my frequent travels. If you love first party Nintendo games and have never played a 3DS... don't pass this one up. It's crazy fun, especially on the road.

SAMSUNG 250GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Samsung 250GB SSD T1 04/07/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 250GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1

Pros: Small and very light. It weighs mere ounces. 250GB is plenty of extra space as media on the go. I did a couple of real world test with a 1GB file. 268MB/s write from SATA3 HDD to the USB3 SSD T1. 467MB/s Read. So basically 4 seconds to write a 1GB file and 2 seconds to read it.

Cons: It would have been nice to have a built-in USB connection. Right now its hanging out of my desktop by the supplied 2 inch cable. The cable is short and mainly made for a portable solution like a laptop. Other than the cable it came with, the only thing I could possibly complain about is the price. It's understandable why its expensive... it's top-of-the-line for sure. But there are cheaper solutions.

Other Thoughts: This little drive is pretty awesome. Ultra fast read and write. So small and light it can be carried in almost anything, even a wallet (although I would not recommend putting this type of precision device in a wallet). Perfect for video media and gaming on the go.
