2 out of 5 eggs Below Average Drive for Below Average Prices 02/01/2016

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -Price
-Good sequential read/write
-Good customer service

Cons: -One drive of two purchased failed
-Random write speeds are horrible (ie ~30MBps on anything besides large video files, such as transferring mp3s)
-Random read not great either
-Constantly loses integrity in a Windows software RAID1 when matched with multiple other drives. I know software RAID isn't great, but it was rebuilding the whole mirror twice a week.

Other Thoughts: Customer service very quickly gave me a credit for well above the cost of the failed drive. I got the credit because they don't make the drive any more, but I prefer buying a guaranteed new item using store credit 100% of the time anyways. For my first time buying a budget hard drive I'm not too unhappy but I definitely wouldn't do it again.

4 out of 5 eggs Phenomenal value for a TV 12/14/2015

This review is from: Changhong 42" Class Ultra HD LED TV - UD42YC5500UA

Pros: -4k resolution is crisp and really cool
-Colors are decent, certainly not high end but well above low end
-Speakers have good amount of volume and enough bass response to keep any casual listener happy
-Plenty of inputs including vga which is helpful for backwards compatibility
-Stand is solid and tv isn't heavy. It is a wide central mount stand but at least it isn't one of the stupid TVs that have the mounting feet on the very edge of the tv so you can't use a smaller tv stand.
-Easy to configure audio delay if your audio is off from video (sadly it probably will be to start)

Cons: -Video delay is very noticeable. Once you have the audio configured to line up you won't notice it while watching media, but any gaming is mildly frustrating at best. Don't get this if you want to game on it or do finer pc productivity work
-Speakers will probably blow themselves out if set to above 30/100, the volume curve is way too steep. But they're pretty loud below that so just don't get overeager and turn them up too high

Other Thoughts: Do you just need something to watch tv and movies on in glorious 4k? You can't beat the value of this device. Do you want to do other things like game or use it as a pc monitor? Then move right along. This isn't the tv you're looking for.
