Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Works Great but Not much improvement over standard HDD 06/05/2016

This review is from: Seagate Desktop SSHD ST4000DX001 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Solid State Hybrid Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -Newegg shipped in very protective plastic air wrap
-4TB is ~3.6TB after NTFS Format
-8GB MLC SSD Cache
-5 year warranty
-Competitively priced among standard HDD
-Slightly faster/load access times
-MB/s read/write speeds are about 33% faster than standard HDD

Cons: -Reliability a concern
-Speeds of 167MB/s read/write is not that much faster than typical HDD
-Read write latency similar to HDD

Other Thoughts: This is an interesting drive because of it’s hybrid feature. It’s faster than your normal Hard disc drive but not quite as fast as a SSD. For example a Caviar Black read and writes are about 120 MB/s read/write and a Samsung 850 Evo is about 500MB/s read/write, this drive is about 167MB/s read/write which is not that much faster than a standard 3.5” 7200rpm drive in terms of transfer rates. The only use I have for this is using it as a secondary drive for storage of files movies/music/photos files that are in abundance. I would still put your OS/programs on a SSD and Games on an SSD simply because of it’s superior access and read rates. This drive does come with a 5yr warranty but no one can say for sure how reliable it is because it is a fairly new type of drive. So far I have not encountered any issues. It works as advertised and is plenty of fast for my needs. I would definately routinely back this drive up, again you just don’t know the long term reliability. Based on my ownership it works great but just don't a huge performance improvement over your normal HDD.

Acer G257HU smidpx 25
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -picture quality is outstanding
-very bright
-117 ppi
-no blur noticed
-ips colors are accurate
-minimal bezel (nearly edge to edge)
-25" 2560x1440 is denser than 27"or28" at same resolution

Cons: -shaky stand
-no VESA mount
-plastic silver bottom bezel is not flush with panel
-a few dead pixels
-osd buttons on the bottom (a pain to use)
-ugly bottom bezel

Other Thoughts: This is a great panel with some engineering flaws. The stand is shaky, that means if there are any slight movements on the table whether typing or using the mouse quickly the vibration will get sent to the monitor and shake. The other cons are self explanatory. Apparently the Dell u2515h ($349) uses the same panel but better stand, VESA mounts, USB hub, and out of box color calibration. I would go that route and pay the extra $90.

Rosewill RX307-PU3-35B - 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Nice form factor
-Auto shutoff works
-On/off switch on the back
-UASP USB 3.0 for optimum speeds
-Simple installation
-No excess vibration sounds

Cons: -power brick at the end of the cable
-plastic end caps

Other Thoughts: I have a 4TB Hybrid Seagate 3.5" HDD that I use with this enclosure and read/writes are 167MB/s over USB3.0. This enclosure is inexpensive and does the job. Haven't noticed any issues at all.
