Pros: Surprisingly, both the read and write speed were the same which is really fast on USB 3.0. I don't know how they are the same but here are the results.
This drive feels solid yet not too heavy. The metal on it must be thin because it feels more like it is made out of thick plastic.
Usually I do not like the stock utilities that storage devices come with and instead install my own. However, I am quite impressed with the ones that this drive comes with. They are easy to use and even look very nice. They give quite a few cool features too like backing up your computer in real time and encrypting the drive. Also, if you do not want them on the HDD, just delete the files on the drive, no special software removal utility needed.
Alright, so I will judge this on the color too. It is a pretty nice blue color but probably more suited for a girl rather than a guy. I will say in my most manly voice though, "it's a pretty blue".
Cons: I cannot really think of any cons besides I am a guy so the color does not really suit me. Also, it does like to show its smudges on the metal and doesn't like getting rid of them easily.
Other Thoughts: What more can I say? It is an external hard drive like you would expect with fast USB 3.0 speeds. The main difference between this and other ones I have reviewed, is the impressive software suite. That and the color...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate STCT4000100 4TB NAS 2-Bay Network Storage
Pros: This thing is amazing! I did not expect much at first, but after plugging it in, I realized how great this device was. The interface is super clean and easy to manage. I would say it is the cleanest web interface I have seen on any device. The share folders, users, and user groups are very easy to manage and a lot of it is a click and drag type interface for easiness.
One feature I thought was cool is the fact that if you make an account for someone, they can log in through the web interface and access any of their shares. No requiring them to use a SFTP client or device specific software.
-Clean and easy interface
-Easy to manage access
-Easy HDD exchange
-Low price for what you get
Cons: Only a couple cons. The first one is that there are not many apps on this device yet, only things like WordPress, a surveillance manager, and a couple others. Another con is that I cannot figure out how to easily give each user a private folder.
-Not many apps yet
-No user home folder
Other Thoughts: This is so well thought out that I am thinking of replacing my current NAS (that was twice the price) with this one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Anker Astro 3E 10000mAh Portable Charger Dual USB External Battery Power Pack for most Smartphones, Tablets and other USB-charged devices (Apple adapters - 30 pin and lightning, not included)
Pros: This is now an outdated version of the Anker batteries but that just means a lower price. And really, it's a battery, do newer versions matter?
I never used this until it was dead (or even below half) and I have used it multiple times already. I have had it for about 3 months and only charged it twice. However, I have also only charged my phone (Galaxy S3) about 5 times.
This charges my phone just as fast as a normal charger and is quite handy for the most serious emergencies like updating your Facebook status if you forgot to charge your phone.
Cons: NopeREAD FULL REVIEW
