This review is from: MAGIX Audio Cleaning Lab 2013
Pros: SUPER EASY! PRICE IS RIGHT! FAST! Basically, everything about this is great. So here's the scoop. you open the program, you click and drag your audio into the timeline (or import/capture). Capturing recognizes ALL of my capture devices unlike my previous software. You have super simple cleanup tools. (just the right tools, not a million effects and other hogwash). Then you have auto track detect, or you simply add your own. Then export is easier than snot. Click here, click there and WHAM! you're done. Also, capturing has EXCELLENT usable features. It has time limits so that if you walk away, it will stop after XXminutes so that you don't record 9 hours worth of nothing. Multiple file type recordings ect...
Cons: Just a couple of cons, but not worth deductions since what you're getting is understood in the price. There is only one track to edit. So if you're interested in scoring several tracks together, you can do it, but you don't have the benefit of multiple track compilations in your interface. Also, one thing that I noticed was that there was no EQ. Just looking to adjust a couple of band widths, but I had to make my edit from Magix, export to other audio editor, then export back to Magix. (But this is worth it because Magix is so easy to use that it would have taken me a LONG time to accomplish the same thing with those other programs that cost a LOT more.
Other Thoughts: It's kinda like a rescuer program. It's only meant to import, clean, and export. That's it. If you're wanting something to master music with, or apply effects, then this is NOT for you. I bought this for the purpose of dubbing my old cassette recordings and vinyl records, and take away tape noise, & clicks and pops. People ask me to clean up their old stuff, and this is PERFECT for that. So, 5 eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to set up! Comes with it's own mounting bracket. Looks great! Comes with a sticker. Works well. Reliable brand. PRICE!!!
Cons: Disappointed about the speed. It got a 5.9 on Windows speed index. Same as my laptop 5.4K drive. Eh.
Other Thoughts: I got this because my NLE was importing high bitrate video too slowly and frames were getting dropped left and right (not to mention it was XP). So I upgraded with a vista license I had lying around and slapped this Hyper X in the box and upgraded my video card... (Vista prem 32, 3GB 800MHz RAM, 1GB NVidea GeForce 210 PCIE 16X) it definitely runs smooth, but SSD's compared to platters? I expected more from my first SSD purchase. Especially being a small capacity drive. Figured it would blow me away. But I guess I have no complaints, because it technically has not lagged yet. Also... data transfer rates between this SSD and a pair of WD 10K RPM velociraptor drives RAID0 striped over GigE LAN was getting about 80MB/s. Again... eh.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD My Book 2TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDBFJK0020HBK-NESN
Pros: Nice looking drive. Price. Easy to setup. USB 3.0. WD. Faster than USB 2.0. NEWEGG super saver shipping put it here in 2 days! WOW NEWEGG!
Cons: I bought a USB 3.0 so that I can transfer at super fast. What a disappointment.
First, let me start by saying that I'm running twin WD Blue's RAID0 striped. I transfer between a standard HDD and my twin Blue's over GB Ethernet and get 100MB/s. I had previously purchased an external 5400RPM eSATA drive and got !!200MB/s!!! WOW. So I hear all this hype about USB 3.0 and I'm getting a disappointing 50MB/s - 64MB/s. I have a video production studio... so all my files are HUGE. That's where speed is nice.
Other Thoughts: All the drivers on my Gigabyte h55-USB3 are up to date. I bought this board 3 1/2 years ago because it was a good brand and had USB 3. Now I'm using the USB3 feature and I'm not so sure I'm excited about it. If I find out something that fixes my issue, I will follow up and repost.READ FULL REVIEW
