OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Still running. I paid 219.99 January 2013.

Cons: The price has more than doubled. Why?

Other Thoughts: It's a good drive but $400? No way!

Roku 3 Digital HD Streaming Media Player w/ Headphones Game Remote and HDMI Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Refurbished. I think I paid 64.99. Remote didn't work. Most likely the reason it was returned. I googled "roku 3 remote doesn't work" found the easy fix. Push button under battery cover and pair remote. Worked on the first try and it's been flawless ever since. Headphone jack and earbud headphones that plug into remote. It is awesome for nighttime viewing. Plex app makes the Roku into a multi media center for all of your digital media. The free HDMI cable doesn't come with roku 3. Best device for TV since the DVR. Network remote (don't have to aim at device. Device is about 5"x5" and 1" tall. Only buy the Roku 3, due to better hardware to prevent lag. Unless, you only have RCA connections on your TV. Then get the Roku 2 (roku 2 does not have earphone jack on remote). I spent $65 for a $99 device.

Cons: You have to have a cable subscription for the apps like espn, foxnow, etc to watch most of the content from those channels/ apps.
No local channels and very little live TV, but nothing a simple antennae won't take of. Espn and Cspn are the only live apps that I can think of, I am sure there are a few more but not many if so.
No DVR. BUt isn't really need because most content can be played at anytime.

Other Thoughts: The cons are not enough to deduct an egg.

Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Western Digital. I have had lees trouble with all Western Digital Drives than any other. Some pros for greens as far as power efficiency and price.

Cons: Green. I prefer black I have 4 of those and one other green. Greens are not that much slower when it comes to R/W speed, but you can definitely feel it.

Other Thoughts: It's already full! Looking forward to the days when 4TB ssd drives are this price.
I wanted to deduct an egg because it is green but I simply could not fault the drive for that since I knew that going in.
