Intel 730 Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast.
High durability for a non-enterprise SSD.
Small - easy to get plenty of airflow around the drive.
Quiet - you don't realize how loud hard drives really are until you get used to an SSD.

Cons: Small laptop-sized mounting screws, even though this drive isn't really for laptops. Mounting holes are positioned for a laptop as well. Had to get the drill out to get these mounted in my server.

Other Thoughts: I put 2 of these in a small workgroup server (an HP ProLiant G7 N54L). I'll let others run the benchmarks - all I know is this server maxes out Gigabit ethernet, and that's without using RAID.
I analyzed our data usage before selecting these drives. The drives have 128TB endurance, so with our typical usage of 20GB/day of writes, they should last 17.5 years.

Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows

4 out of 5 eggs Works, but can't turn it off 06/12/2014

This review is from: Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows

Pros: Exact same controller as Xbox360.
Wireless USB dongle for PC has long cord (about 5 ft).
Good range (15 ft or more).
Worked perfectly with Titanfall - no setup required.

Cons: Can't turn the controller off. Normally, I would shut a controller off from the XBox menu, but the PC driver provides no control panel or anything. To turn it off, we have to momentarily open the battery compartment.

Other Thoughts: The instructions don't mention pairing. Just like with the XBox, you have to push the pairing button on both the controller and on the USB dongle to get it to work.

macally PHR-S250U3B Aluminum 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid construction.
Good chipset - it's reliable -no errors on large transfers.
Fairly fast transfer speeds.
Aluminum body makes a good heatsink for the enclosed drive.

Cons: Very bright led light - I have to cover it up with a sticker.

Other Thoughts: I have bought a lot of these over the years - I use them as TimeMachine backup drives, and I velcro them to the back of the iMac so they're completely out of sight (except for that blue led light!). No power supply necessary - the iMac seems to be able power them no problem (the iMac can provide 7W per firewire port, which seems to be enough).
