This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3 Black
Pros: Stays under 50c even under high load of xfering over 2TB at a time.
Windows 7 xfer speeds are consistently over 100MB/S
Western Digital 4TB green inside (model WD-WCC4E3X6RHUA)
Cons: The main Con for external drives is heat, this one somehow manages to not have that issue. I have had multiple Seagates and they would hit over 50C almost from the get go, forget about a 2TB xfer. This one stays cool without the use of any fans. I guess it is possible to make a good passive cooling design after all.
Other Thoughts: Will see how it lasts over time. Got it for $110.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cradlepoint Black Personal Wi-Fi Hotspot w/ 3G&4G Ready / WiPipe Powered (PHS300)
Pros: Worked well with Verizon 4G LTE on LG usb stick
Cons: 4 months later it won't turn on, no light when plugged into power
Other Thoughts: Not really sure how the product came to be dead, there is a small possibility I may have pluged the wrong power adapter in.
Unit heats up when plugged in but the charge light does not come on and 0 power from battery. Call to Cradlepoint was picked up within a minute and I was told once they get the item replacement will ship in 2-3 days which is fairly quick. Looking forward to using this unit once again.
Pros: 12x write speed on Memorex 25GB BD-R media (54MB/s)
Cons: Would only write same media at 4x with the firmware it sold with months ago
Other Thoughts: This is a great value burner. I read a lot of reviews stating that LG burners can burn Memorex BD-R at 8x...and now, who really cares when this thing can do it at 12x? The only concern now is to make sure your HDD can supply the data fast enough :)READ FULL REVIEW
