Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB USB 3.0 High-Performance Portable Hard Drive STDA4000100 Black
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB is an absolutely terrific external portable Hard Drive. Having 2 2TB Hard Drives in Raid-0 has to be the best idea ever for an external portable Hard drive, I was so excited upon receiving The Seagate Backup Plus Fast, this is a truly innovative product. I am going to keep this review somewhat short, The Seagate Backup Plus Fast is very solid and is well constructed and feels of great quality. It contains 2, SAMSUNG Spinpoint M9T ST2000LM003 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" with an "Average Seek Time of 12ms" and an "Average Latency of 5.6ms", and all the Reviews I have read regarding these Drives have been terrific, I do not think I seen one bad review.

Cons: I can honestly not think of one bad thing to say about The Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB, I think it is a terrific , innovative design and I truly love this product.

Other Thoughts: I did a few tests with The Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB, 1st with ATTO Disk Benchmark I received a steady 200 MB/s both Read and Write, and with AIDA64 Disk Benchmark Read Test Suite I received a max transfer speed of 210.9 MB/s and an Average Read Access of 0.00ms! and I was completely enthralled with these results. The price point of The Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB is awesome, it is actually cheaper to buy the Backup Plus Fast than to buy the Drives themselves and I think you would have trouble finding a Raid-0 to USB3 adapter, and if so, how much would that cost you. Like I mentioned before this is a terrific and innovative product at a great price point, and you will be very satisfied with The Seagate Backup Plus Fast 4TB.

GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs The Gigabyte GA-X99-UD4 10/27/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD4 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The Gigabyte GA-X99-UD4 motherboard was an effortless install process, I used my i7-5820k and my G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 2800Mhz 16GB and did a very simple overclock up to 4.4Ghz because that's all my 5820 will seem to do. I was really impress with the quality of the UD4 , I have always been impressed with Gigabyte's products. The bios is the same Gigabyte bios that we all know, its is very easy to navigate and has the new UEFI version and classic mode which is my personal favorite. My overclock has been solid since day one. The features are just way to many to list, but I did noticed that the PCB is very ridged, and another thing that needs to be mentioned is the "6x Gold Plating" on the CPU socket and on the Dimm slots, and the Q-Flash feature, which might be needed for the future 2011v3 cpu's in Q1 2016, the board shipped with the F8 bios ver. but I quickly updated the the F9c as I always do, just habit, although I did not encounter any problems with my installation. Their is also many great software utility like, Easytune, APP Center, and V-Tuner that I almost use daily. The onboard audio is traffic in my opinion, it is the Realtek ALC1150, very common but sounds just great to me, their is no real audible difference between this and my $100+ sound card. The Ambient LED is a nice touch but it can be easily turned off in the bios or with the included software utility.

Cons: I can not honestly think of any cons as it was such an effortless build and I will be enjoying this build for many years to come.

Other Thoughts: For the last few years I have been satisfied with the quality of Gigabyte's products form their video cards and their motherboards in the past i have had about 5 Gigabyte motherboards and all are still alive and well, and really never had any major problems with them and by now I am so use to their bios's that It only takes me just a few hours to get a great a very nice stable overclock. I am always so happy to play with these boards, and my customers are also happy as well.

Pros: The G.Skill F3-2400C10D-16GTX is some great memory, I just set it, and forget it,it worked great on my MSI Z87 MPower Max and my Asus Z87 Maximus VI Hero when it presently resides.

Cons: Their is no cons when it comes to G.Skill memory.

Other Thoughts: I love G.Skill I have been buying G.Skill for more than 4 years and have always been more than satisfied, really its basically its the only memory I buy anymore because it always been stable and reliable.
