Seiki SE39UY04 39” Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs An all-around good deal for a developer 07/02/2014

This review is from: Seiki SE39UY04 39” Class 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV

Pros: I am a developer and use this for telnet/ssh sessions, Developer GUIs, and web surfing mostly. The mouse lag (very little) for me is irrelevant for these tasks. The text is crisp and clear for the above tasks. I started using the Seiki to watch 1080P Netflix and saw no issue or tearing. 4K content will tear for some youtube videos and and not at all for others. I was able to adjust the backlight to a good level in the service menu - so not an issue.

Cons: The mandatory 3 hour power-off is easily shutoff in the service menu. Also, if you have multiple monitors, the Seiki disappears when it is powered off, so you need to turn off your monitors in sequence or when you power back on, your windows will have shifted to your smaller monitor, then back to the Seiki, resizing them.

Other Thoughts: The price keeps dropping. I got it at $380 three weeks ago, but now I see it somewhere at $300. At $300 you just have to buy.

LUXA2 7000 mAh Dual USB P1 Pro PO-UNP-PCP1SI-00 Ultra Capacity External Battery Pack Power Bank Charger for most Smartphones, Tablets and other USB-charged Devices
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I can charge mine and all my friends phones who have a USB charger. I highly recommend this if your phone battery dies to quickly.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: Has a cool case that you can store the cord in.

WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs 1 out of 5 drives bad, despite excellent packaging 05/24/2014

This review is from: WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive -Bulk

Pros: 4 TB for a reasonable price. Packaging was excellent. Newegg has some nice little boxes with a bubble wrap sleeve. Then my 5 drives were in a larger box with great bubble wrap. There was no damage at all to the boxes.

Cons: Put 5 of them in RAID 5. Started writing and one drive was bad. SMART reported fine. But quicktest with WD's tool failed in 30 seconds. The extended test quit after too many bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: Install your drives quickly so you can RMA to Newegg rather than get a refurb from WD. I ordered 5 enterprise-level WD drives from Newegg last year and also had 1 in 5 drives fail. I'm not going to comment, but just state the facts.
