Seagate Backup Plus 8TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT8000100 Black
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The drive is fast. I benchmarked it with Crystal Disk Mark and for Sequential, I got 188 mbps READ and 182 mbps WRITE. Faster than given credit so far. Small footprint! The drive contained is the 5900 rpm archival drive from Seagate. Does the job.

Largest single drive out there.

Cons: Not a 7200 rpm hdd. But with the size cache on the is fast!

Other Thoughts: I use the drive to primarily backup my X99 desktop (dual drive configuration with Samsung Pr840 SSD as C: and Toshiba 2 TB HDD as D:). Using a WinPE version of Acronis True Image 2016, I can backup 1.1 TB of data AND verify the data in 3 hours and 25 minutes. This drive is fast.

Purchased directly from Seagate, because was not in stock the day I wanted it at Newegg. This drive is worth the spin!

Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016 - Download - 1PC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Easy Install. New Features 09/25/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016 - Download - 1PC

Pros: Easy to install. Customized the way I want it in a flash! New versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and One Note. They made it easy to get to where you want and do what you want. Interface very clean and easy to understand

Cons: None as yet.

Other Thoughts: Wish that the Home and Business contained Publisher instead of Outlook...would have purchased that. Kept my 2010 versions of Outlook, InfoPath and Publisher intact. Two versions of office do it for me.

BUFFALO AirStation Extreme AC 1750 Gigabit Dual Band Wireless Router - WZR-1750DHP
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Internet speed maintains

Cons: Network File and Printer sharing doesn't work with this unit, for some odd reason. Talked to Buffalo tech support, tech has same issue with his and has no idea how to fix. I rely on printer and file sharing through windows.

Other Thoughts: Got the new router. Good news...wireless speed is normal. Bad news. I can't access my networked printers. I have two printers connected to two different machines. With printer sharing enabled on all machines, I can access both printers via wireless. With my old Western Digital N router, I can access two printers on all my machines. With the Buffalo router, the printers won't connect, nor work. I have tried to reinstall on a few machines, but the machines won't connect to the two desktops. If I reconnect the WD router...the printers are rediscovered and installed and work. Even the defective router that I returned for this one worked fine with the printers

Other issues with the new router. I flashed the firmware and the machine never reboots itself. The defective one rebooted after a firmware update. Even after changing settings...the defective router would reboot. This one just sits there and does nothing until I refresh the browser screen. I have tried reflashing the firmware twice. Reset and started from scratch four times and still have the same issues. Two in a row!
