Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB High-Performance Portable External Drive with 200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 - STDA4000100
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 3X speed of regular USB 3.0 drive on reads & writes. 3.6 TB (after formatting) is wonderful amount of storage!

Cons: none (unless you count the cost, but it is not pricey for the features & benefits that it provides)

Other Thoughts: You won't be disappointed with this drive. I now have 2, they are so good!
Note that this is actually 2 x 2 TB drives configured as RAID 0, which is how it gets to be so fast.

ASUS Mini PC CHROMEBIT-B013C RockChip 3288-C 2 GB LPDDR3L 16 GB eMMC Quad-core ARM Mali-T624 Graphics Google Chrome OS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The Chromebit works exactly as advertised, & with a Rockchip 3288 CPU, it performs quite nicely. It linked effortlessly to a Bluetooth keyboard/touchpad, & supported a USB hub, flash drives, & memory card readers without a hitch. Given that Google adds 100 GB of Cloud storage free for 2 years to the basic 15 GB you have free on a Google account, & after that, it is $2/mth for 100 GB addon, storage space for files is no problem. Internal storage for files is about 9 GB free, & of course you can plug in a flash drive if you wish.

Cons: None. Faster CPU on anything is always appreciated, but this is good enough for web browsing, email, word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, looking at photos & videos, listening to music, watching Netflix, YouTube, etc.

Other Thoughts: The big question is should you buy a Chromebook, Chromebox, or Chromebit!

The Chromebox is probably dead, killed by the Chromebit, which costs less than 1/2 as much, & is much smaller, yet is essentially the same product. R.I.P. Chromebox.

That leaves the Chromebook, which includes a display, keyboard, & touchpad all in one unit, yet costs about the same as a Chromebit (once you add in the external keyboard/touchpad for the Chromebit).

If you want Ultra-portability, it is hard to beat the Chromebit, especially if you pair it with a compact Bluetooth keyboard/touchpad (I have one that is about 2" x 5" x 3/8"). Couple the Chromebit with a large display & you have a wonderful display ad platform too.

One the other hand, it is nice to have it all in one integrated unit, like the Chromebook -- which can also be connected to a large external display or TV via HDMI cable.

In the end, I have a Chromebit, plus 2 Chromebooks (12" display & 15" display) -- My wife loves her 15" Chromebook, & finds it much simpler than Windows.

Buy one of these & you'll have a ton of fun with it!
