This review is from: WD 2TB My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red
Pros: This is a compact, high-capacity drive in what appears to be a rugged case. For backing up and transferring large files, it is a convenient package.
Cons: Under Microsoft Windows, inserting this USB drive causes the operating system to request to install the Western Digital SES driver. That is, this unit is not simply an external hard drive, it offers additional features that require installation of an additional device driver.
This 'feature' is very inconvenient for one of the primary uses of the drive - moving large files between computers. Unless you want Microsoft Windows to request installation of the SES driver each time you connect the drive, every system to which you connect the drive must have the SES driver installed.
This is obviously a problem in any environment in which the computer configuration is tightly controlled.
In my experience, Seagate drives do not have this problem.
This drive operates correctly under Linux, which appears to have a built-in SES driver. The dmsg output from Ubuntu 13.10 shows the SES hardware being recognized correctly.
Other Thoughts: Buy a Seagate drive in order to transfer large files between computers.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is a phone.
Cons: As stated by another reviewer, does not have a QWERTY keypad, useless for sending text messages.
Other Thoughts: If I had read the Newegg reviews more carefully before buying, I could have saved myself the money I wasted on the phone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec DF-85 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: A wonderful large case for performance systems with excellent cooling. The system for installing and swapping SATA hard drives is excellent.
Cons: The top fans are loud (I measure 37dB at 1m above the case). If the case were under a table, this would not matter. The plastic catches for the front doors seem like a flimsy touch.
Other Thoughts: I am using this case for an engineering workstation with multiple high-end graphics cards and several disk drives. All the hardware runs cool. I wish the LEDs could be turned off.READ FULL REVIEW
