Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Noticeable speed improvement from the stock PS4 HDD

Cons: - Speed improvements aren't "as" impressive as this drive is advertised. Access times are pretty average compared to 2.5" HDDs, and R/W speeds are also average.

Other Thoughts: - In real-world usage, this drive doesn't perform much better than other high-end 2.5" drives, but it does do nicely regardless.
- The HDD part of this drive is 5400RPM. This isn't plainly made clear in the product description.
- Supports ENHANCED SECURITY ERASE UNIT and reports the run time of 332min
- Queue depth of 32
- Supports "Software settings preservation". For better performance, I recommend using hdparm from a Linux machine, disabling AAM (Automatic Acoustic Management) and APM (Advanced Power Management), and setting the preservation flag.

Seagate BarraCuda ST1000DM010 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Arrived with no read/write issues
- Noticeable performance improvement compared to old drive
- No problems under GNU/Linux

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: - Under Fedora Workstation 25, the drive benchmarks the following averages with a sample size of 10 MB: 155 MB/s read, 91.2 MB/s write, 14.36 msec access time
- Testing done on a BIOSTAR A880G+ motherboard and Phenom II X4
- Drive ran continuously for 21 days with no signs of problem

LINKSYS SE2500-NP Smart 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Works nicely 11/01/2016

This review is from: LINKSYS SE2500-NP Smart 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch

Pros: - Small
- Temperatures are cool
- Maintains gigabit transfer rates without issue
- Doesn't easily tip backwards with ethernet cables inserted (a common issue with most small/lightweight switches)

Cons: - No wall-mounting option available

Other Thoughts: It works nicely for a small switch and looks nice to have out in the open. If you don't care for appearance though or plan to have it in a rough environment, an alternative metal switch is a better option (8-port metal options are common in the price range this switch goes for).
