Pros: So I was misinformed by the best buy staff.. This item is a SATA2 and not a SATA3 drive. That changes my last review to mean moot about the speed issue. Considering it's a SATA2 drive, I don't really have any complaints about the drive it's self. It's operating just as it should, works great for what it is.
Other Thoughts: Gotta love fools who are the product salesmen.. I was told this was a SATA3 drive and was expecting it to compare to my last one, so I thought the speed difference was fault of the drive. Take that out and I don't really have any complaints about the drive that come to mind. The factory packaging is deceiving as it is not specified what connection type it uses, other than a SATA connector.. Idk if that's fault of Seagate or if it's fault of Best Buy, but that's something to take note if you are buying it elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Seems about on par quality wise with equally priced drives. It wasn't DOA and hasn't given me any problems in the 3 months I've run it. It was $60 for 1tb to emergency replace my previous drive that died.
Cons: SLOWWWWWWW!!!!! This thing is EXTREMELY slow. Load times are ridiculously high, to the point I'm wondering if this drive is defective or if this style is just ridiculously slow for it's ratings.
Other Thoughts: I picked this up to replace my dead WD Blue(bad sectors after a yr) and this thing is maybe half the speed of the WD Blue. Same specs all around, SATA3, same cache, same 1tb size, same connector, same programs, same everything except I have about 350 gb LESS stuff on this drive, as compared to where my old drive was when it died. As long as this one doesn't die in a yr as well, it could be a good secondary drive, but this thing is just painfully slow. Opening windows notepad(win 7 64 bit) is taking around 15 seconds to load, opening google chrome can take up to 20 seconds to open and load. It is seriously ridiculous how slow this thing is, it's like SATA1 kind of speeds. I honestly think my old 256gb floppy connector hard drive in a USB external enclosure is about the same speed as this drive.
Little rant aside, it's stable. No glitching so far(aside from typical windows 7 glitching that is), everything seems pretty solid. Everything works good. It's not up to par for it to be spec'd so high imo, especially since a drive known for being slower was nearly double the speed of this one.
Side thought, I lost all of my Crysis 3 save data >_< Why isn't the stuff saved in the cloud like it is with Bioshock Infinite and the like?
This review is from: AZiO BTD-V400 USB Micro Bluetooth Adapter
Pros: bought for the inland 87093 Supra-aural ProHT Bluetooth Headset to be used and it works flawlessly. recognized from phones as well, could be usefull as another transfer method if your phone allows it
Cons: software is a bit buggy at times but for the most part, problem free.
Other Thoughts: it wasn't wanting to connect to the headset a few times but i'm not sure if it was the headset or the dongle that was being picky.
it has good range. it could be better, but it still works(though choppy) about 40 ft away, through a plasterboard wall.
