SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab S SM-T800NTSAXAR 10.5 - Exynos 5 Octa Core 3GB Memory 16GB 10.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Beautiful screen, thin and fairly light.

Cons: I tried streaming over a good Wi-Fi connection and the picture kept breaking up and going blotchy. My Nexus 5 phone alongside on the same stream was perfect so I brought the router from the bed room into the family room to be close (I know walking to the router is easier) but the result was no better and no matter how I configured the wi-fi there was no improvement. I have about 16 MB/s internet service and a quality router but the picture on my Nexus 5 put the Samsung to shame. Swiching off the Nexus in case it was hogging bandwidth didn't help.

Other Thoughts: Samsung has previously not done well with under-powered tablets except the Nexus 10 they made for Google. This one seemed to be the answer with a big beautiful screen but Samsung seems to have shot themselves in the foot again with a flaky wi-fi system.

DIYPC MA08-BK Black USB 3.0 Micro-ATX Mini Tower Gaming Computer Case with Dual Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very light, small, nicely painted inside, all screws and standoffs plus a few spare. Has USB3 header and motherboard plug.

Cons: It's light because the steel is the thinnest I have ever used and the barest tightening loosens the hold of the self tapping screws supplied to fit the power supply support bracket. Though large enough to fit a 100 mm fan, the perforated rear holes don't align and metal folds will not allow it to lie flat and you are thus stuck with an 80 mm. It was such a mass/mess of cable that I had to pull out a 500 W power supply with braided cables, a video card and a 3.5" drive. I put in a cheap unbraided power supply (Rosewill) and two 2.5" drives. Set up as a basic PC with a low power Haswell chip and laptop drives it works and looks neat BUT be sure to fit every SATA cable, power, USB, front panel and audio before you try and fit into case.

Other Thoughts: The space reserved for a floppy or card reader would be better closed in front and redesigned as a bay for 2.5" drives.

Seagate Constellation ES ST2000NM0011 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fine while it lasted.

Cons: I bought and paid extra for this drive because of the supposed reliability and the five year warranty. Unfortunately the drive died and could not be recovered under Windows or Linux partitioning software. I filled in Seagate's on line form and got the message that as this was a component I had to go to the seller for warranty. As every drive I have ever bought (probably about 100 starting with a tiny 10 meg) has been OEM, including Seagate drives, this seemed strange so I called customer service who were pleasant but said there was nothing they could do; the computer states no warranty for OEM drives. Caveat Emptor BEWARE OF SEAGATE OEM.
