Seagate 750GB Expansion Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STBX750100 Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 750gb
USB 3, doesn't require external power
I've had transfer speeds up to 120 MB/s with a normal hard drive
It's lasted a year so far.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I like to open up external drives to see what brand of hard drive is actually in the drive... This one has a Samsung drive in it.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p (59390909) Intel Core i5 4200M(2.5GHz) 6 GB Memory 1 TB + 8 GB SSHD Hybrid Drive 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good processor
1080p Screen
Dual 750m's capable of running games very well
Full Backlit Keyboard, including numpad, which has two levels of brightness
Speakers are pretty good for a laptop
2 USB 3.0 ports, and an always on USB 2
SD Card slot
Gigabit Ethernet

Cons: GPU underclocks a LOT LOT when you are running on battery power, which saves some battery power.
Weird issues with Explorer randomly freezing and restarting
Battery isn't too great, but that was expected
No media keys, just volume keys with the Fn modifier.

For some reason, my main graphics card is underclocking itself even while the charger is plugged in, randomly going up and down from 940mhz to 135mhz, which is pretty annoying while I'm trying to play games.

Other Thoughts: This is a very good gaming laptop for the price, I generally use it for World of Warcraft, or Skyrim/Oblivion and now Battlefield 4, all of which it runs pretty nicely at reasonably high settings. I haven't tried the Geforce Experience recommended settings because I'm overly paranoid about heating, since it's a laptop it doesn't have as much cooling power as my desktop did.
Running skyrim will get the cpu and gpu's running up to around 150F, with settings on high at 1080p.
The screen looks pretty nice, and is reasonably bright.
Ethernet is gigabit, but I'm usually just using Wi-Fi.
Windows 8 isn't a huge deal for me, since I have already gotten used to it on my old pc, it has it's pro's and cons but using Start8 I can ignore a couple of those cons.
I would definitely buy again.

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had this for around 2 years, and just bought a second for my brother's computer. It has been running reliably for all the time I've had it, and everything i had in my pc worked properly with no power issues.
Modular is a huge bonus, except I lost a couple of cables that I didn't really need.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: For my brother's computer, it is powering an Intel i5 2500, and a Radeon R9 270x.
In my computer, it powered an Intel i5 3570k and a Radeon HD 6850, able to overclock the cpu pretty easily.
