Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9500420AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I hesitated buying this drive given previous experiences with Seagate. But - this drive has made a believer out of me. Boot time and performance now almost as fast as my Intel SSD. W7 on Dell XPS boots in less than 20 seconds - and, after using it for a while, it runs much faster than using a platter-only drive.

Cons: The Egg dropped the price after I bought mine!!

Other Thoughts: The W7 install appeared to hang at first - it took quite a while before the clean install kicked off. BIOS is set to AHCI - but I'm not sure if thats the best setting.

HTC 7 Mozart 8 GB storage, 512 MB ROM, 576 MB RAM Black Unlocked GSM Smart Phone w/ Windows Phone 7 / 3.7
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great display, very smooth OS and tranisitions between menus, good battery life, excellent build quality, relatively easy to update to Mango/7.5

Cons: Few apps and games, limited customization options, no cellular data counter, serious SMS flaw discovered recently, latest HTC Update breaks MAC address - see below. Mine was from Tesla / Australia and included a worthless Australian-pronged charger. The box had been opened and resealed - but the phone did appear new and untouched.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to like this phone - HTC's build quality, and the display, is excellent. But, latest HTC update causes it to have a new MAC address each time the phone is rebooted - a definite no-go if you use MAC address filtering on your network. Hopefully the SMS flaw will be patched quickly by Microsoft. Right now - there are too many negatives for me to recommend this phone.

HTC 7 Mozart 8 GB storage, 512 MB ROM, 576 MB RAM Black Unlocked GSM Smart Phone w/ Windows Phone 7 / 3.7
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very high build quality, bright and clear display, great battery life, Bluetooth comms, compact and solidly built, Mango/7.5 is a big improvement over 7.0, and WP7 is excellent with MS Office apps.

Cons: I highly recommend the Mozart itself - but Windows Phone OS still needs a bunch of work. The Windows app store has a limited selection and many decent apps cost too much. I can't find an app to track cellular data usage which is important to me. Images in email messages (like from stationary in Apple Mail) still don't display correctly. Last but not least - the maps are still truly terrible!

Other Thoughts: This is the second Mozart 7 I have owned - I sold the first one due to frustrations with Windows Phone 7. I use this phone with my work SIM, which severely restricts data usage, and the Mozart/WP7 is great for calling only.
