OCZ Trion 100 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The OCZ Tricon 100 SSD seem to be a good drive for the price. The benchmarks I ran the Trion through were rather good. I have been using this drive for over 3 weeks now, and still working great with no errors. In my opinion the Tricon for the price is rather a good deal, there is a few drives that are a bit faster but in real world conditions I doubt would ever notice.

Cons: Now as far as cons,I really can not think of now because of the nice price and the drive has been flawless and error free.

Other Thoughts: The test system I used is a X99 I7-5800k @ 4.2 Ghz with 16 Gigs @ 2400Mhz win 7 X64 and the benchmarks are,

iRULU U8 Smart Watch Bluetooth Google Android and Apple iOS Compatible Music Play Photo Function Fitness and Sleep Tracker White
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The iRULU U8 Smart Watch is a descent smartwatch for its price point. The functions of this smartwatch seemed to work just fine, although the Altitude meter only measured 260ft instead of the 2200 ft. Like many others had mentioned this is really is a toy for an older child, after playing with it for more than a few days and lost interest, so I gave it to my 12 year niece, and she did in fact love it, as I was to embarrassed to wear it out of the house.

Cons: I really can not say anything bad about the iRULU U8 Smart Watch because it was only a $25 smartwatch, others should keep that in mind, "it is what it is for the price"

Other Thoughts: The iRULU U8 Smart Watch, worked just fine with an S3 just fine and my niece say it worked with her phone, I'm not sure what see is using, but really if you are looking for a smartwatch at a $25 price point, and for a older child, this should be just fine for that purpose.

OCZ Vertex 460A 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The OCZ Vertex 460A VTX460A-25SAT3-240G is a great SSD, its case is made of nice heavy aluminum that is used as a heatsink and is bundled with a 3.5-inch desktop adapter bracket with an OCZ logo, and also it come with a copy of Acronis True Image to clone your OS from your old SSD. It uses the upgraded version of the Barefoot 3 M10 Controller that is used in their slower OCZ ARC 100 SSD's. I have been using these OCZ Barefoot 3 M10 Controller SSD's now for more than a year and I have had no problems what so ever, not even errors or bad sectors. I believe since OCZ is now a Toshiba company there is better quality control and uses the latest Toshiba A19nm flash, actually all my SSD's that uses Toshiba NAND had not failed me yet, and apparently the Barefoot 3 M10 Controller is reliable as well.

Cons: I now have more than 3 OCZ drives and had been very reliable, a few of them I have had more than a year or so and still no errors or have yet to fail.
