This review is from: iomega Prestige Portable 1.5TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 35213 Black
Cons: Always back up if you've wasted your money on this drive. It will eventually fail. Mine lasted 4 months before the first failure. Good luck.
Also - bulky, spins loudly, and sometimes hangs up the USB ports somehow so no other device can connect until I disconnect the Iomega.
Forced me to research data recovery, and search for solutions.
Completely worthless, expensive, paperweight that I will never trust with data again.
This review is from: iomega Prestige Portable 1TB USB 3.0 2.5" External Hard Drive 35194 Black
Pros: Writes/reads fast with usb 3.0.
Cons: Loses file system just as fast and becomes RAW. Lost 1TB data, TWICE, to this drive. Recovery software not successful.
Other Thoughts: Always back up if you've wasted your money on this drive. It will eventually fail. Mine lasted 4 months before the first failure. Good luck...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It can play 720p HD video (WMV). Slight stuttering observed, but at full screen the stuttering goes away. Of course, not capable of 1080p. Battery life is excellent. Possibly the best in class, according to reviews and benchmarks. LED backlight is nice, although screen appears washed out (too much gamma) at times. Fair trade-off for ability to use in sunlight. RAM is extremely easy to install, although only one slot. HDD is easily accessable as well.
Cons: HIDEOUS. Had to dock 1 egg for that alone. The store here overseas only had the blue version. No time to order online before my trip. Probably the ugliest laptop I've ever seen, although well-constructed. The keys are mac-style. Not a fan. Spaced out too much and annoying to type on until you get used to it. This also makes the entire unit larger than most netbooks, also feels slightly heavier than most NB's. Pointless. Only slightly smaller than my 14" Vaio, about 1/4 less weight to carry. Gets too hot to use on your lap. battery is wobbly, but not too much. Overall design is sound, well-constructed and durable, but appears to be designed by someone with no aesthetic sense...like the SAAB of netbooks. Hideous, but well made.
In the end, exactly what I expected so I can't say I'm not satisfied. It was the only N280 model left after Black Friday...no doubt due to its looks. The slight difference in FSB between N280 and N270 is worth it to me. In something so small, every bit helps.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to use with an HD camcorder on vacation, in order to store the video and possibly edit. For that, it is sufficient. I exchanged a one-day-old DELL with Z530 processor for this. Z530 is not even capable of decent video playback let alone HD. This Toshiba is barely capable of HD video playback but it can do it, so nice to use on long plane rides for watching blu-ray (720p) or dvd rips. Coupled with long battery life, it's perfect for such use. it handles most tasks well as opposed to the Z530 which was frustrating to do even basic tasks on.READ FULL REVIEW
