Pros: compact, inexpensive, versatile
Other Thoughts: I've been in the market for a Windows tablet for a while. First I want to point out that I installed the 1511 update a previous reviewer said caused problems, everything on mine is still working as it should so it seems that's an isolated issue. I've been packing a 15.6" gaming laptop (heavy) around for school and this accomplishes everything I need it to while being much more compact/convenient.
I've been using this 2-in-1 exclusively at school, it has its flaws but none are deal breakers when factoring in the price. My primary complaint is the touchpad. First, it's touchy/doesn't always work right for me, second, it's placement on the keyboard is hard for me to get used to. There was a time I was using the device and there was a static/crackling that started coming out of the speakers. I was using Microsoft Word/not doing anything audio related so I'm not sure why it did that but a simple reboot and it went away. It seems GPS antennas only get installed in cellular devices, I knew this didn't have GPS going into it but I do wish I could use it for navigation when using it as a tablet.
This device has its flaws but they’re overlooked because it makes my life easier at school. I still use my primary laptop at home but anywhere else this has become the workhorse. If you’re on a budget and just need something for running Office/basic apps, you can’t go wrong with this purchase.
Pros: fast, inexpensive, Corsair reliability
Other Thoughts: I installed this in my laptop as the storage drive for my games. While this would be a great all purpose drive, I'm fortunate enough to have an m.2 slot (Samsung EVO 850 250GB) in addition to a 2.5" SATA slot. The Corsair drive is fast, I'm getting 517 MB/s writes and 540 MB/s reads. For real-world performance, a typical 7-8 GB movie takes under 15 seconds to transfer between the 2 drives regardless of which one I'm transferring to/from. The Samsung (OS drive) has slightly lower rated specs than the Corsair so I'm sure it's the bottleneck, you may be able to achieve better real world performance but I doubt it'd be anything noticeable.
The drive performs great, it's inexpensive and the Corsair products I've owned (numerous) have always been dependable. If you don't have a separate drive for your OS/apps, you should consider the 480GB version.
This is installed in an Inspiron 15 7559 w/ i7 6700HQ and 16GB (2x8GB) RAM
This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB4000100 Black
Pros: very fast, quiet, USB 3.0, small, inexpensive
Cons: no fan
Other Thoughts: I listed the size and quiet operation as pros, but that's only accomplished with its fan-less design. I haven't noticed any significant heat with my use but I'd still be hesitant to set this up as a full time external that's always on. My transfer speeds from my m.2 (sata) drive in my laptop are great, I'm getting:
176 MB/s reads
172 MB/s writes
The speeds and size of this drive are solid, it's hard to beat its value. It takes under 20 sec to copy a 3.5gb file to/from my laptop. The laptop being used to test is a Dell Inspiron 7559 w/i7-6700HQ and a 250gb Samsung Evo m.2 SSD. If you're looking for a compact/portable drive, this packs a lot of bang for your buck. It's an affordable, portable, fast/high quality drive with lots of space. There's nothing more to really say, it works as it should and the numbers speak for themselves.
