Pros: I like these drives because they are up to 5 times faster than a regular Hard Drive. Also have two other 2 TB Seagate Drives for which I am very happy with. Pricewise much better than shelling out $150-$250 for a 250 Gig SSD with limited capacity. These drives are almost as fast as ssd, and give you ssd like performance, without the significant loss of Hard Drive Capacity.
Cons: None I can think of...
Other Thoughts: I think that SSD drives are way too expensive for the capacity that they offer. I would like to see the cost of SSD drives come down significantly so that they are more affordable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Superb Choice® 12-cell TOSHIBA Satellite L755D-S5204 Laptop Battery
Pros: This Laptop Battery fit my Toshiba Laptop according to the Satellite Model I requested. Compared to my old Laptop I get 5 1/2 hours on Full Charge with this 12 Cell Battery.
Cons: Only con if you want to call it that is the Battery is really BIG, and extends an inch or more down from the standard battery that comes with my laptop. Would be great someday if they could invent 12 cell batteries that fit the profile of the regular battery without having to extend out from the original profile.
Other Thoughts: Good Value, Great Price, and Gives you a much better charge on the 12 cell, 5 /12 complete charge, versus the Stock battery that only lasts 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours minimum!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APC BR1300G 1300 VA 780 Watts 10 Outlets Power Saving Back-UPS Pro 1300
Pros: This was a SUPER awesome deal I got from Newegg on Black Friday. I bought this for $99!! Wow what a deal. And it seems to work pretty well so far, just had to make sure the battery was installed though a bit confusing on the directions.
Cons: For some unknown reason I ran the Powerchute Personal Edition software with the USB cable that comes with the UPC, and ran a self test with the Energy Efficient Setting turned on, and the self test failed. Also when I powered off my equipment with the Energy Efficient setting on, it would BEEP 4 beeps every 4 seconds.
I finally turned off the Energy Efficient Setting, and ran a self test on the unit again. It passed with the Energy Efficient Setting Off.
With 210-256 Watts of Power this Unit estimates the Battery Power to run approximately 20-23 minutes in the event of a Power Outage, which should be sufficient enough time for me to be able to safely shut down after the power goes out.
Other Thoughts: I have a Computer with a 880 Watt rated Thermaltake Black Widow connected to this APC, a 42' Vizio TV as my primary monitor, a 20 inch HP Monitor, and a USB Hub. All using 210-256 Watts of power according to the software. The software says I can add more to my Battery Backup.
Only time will tell when I will need to replace the battery, one thing is for sure that the Energy Efficient setting when turned on is making this battery fail a self test when turned on.
