AMD A6-6420K Richland Dual-Core 4.0GHz Socket FM2 65W AD642KOKHLBOX Desktop Processor (Black Edition) AMD Radeon HD8000 Series
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The best thing about this CPU is the low voltage (65W) and the price.
Also high speed 4.0 Ghz. Low voltage + 4Ghz + price.
I installed on MSI A88XI AC FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard.
Very responsive to multitasking on day to day computing.

Cons: Stock fan a little noisy but is not big deal.

Other Thoughts: It is only a 2 core CPU but it gets the job done, it is way faster than the previous CPU I had on this system AMD E-350 APU (1.6GHz, Dual-Core).
System is very responsive.

PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

5 out of 5 eggs PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE 12/13/2014

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: One pro is that you can't lose the top/cap, nice design.

Tested this device using good 'ol dd in Linux.
When drive is not formatted (raw) you get about 150MB/s writes, with a file system on it you get the following:

$dd if=/dev/zero of=/run/media/axel/USB30FD/delet-file count=1024 blocksize=2M oflag=direct
1024+0 records in
1024+0 records out
2147483648 bytes (2.1 GB) copied, 22.3992 s, 95.9 MB/s

Note the option oflag, this option makes you bi-pass the kernel caching thus writing directly to the device.

95MB/s to 97MB/s consistently. A large ISO about 3.5GB on size achieved speeds of 117MB using rsync, keep in mind a copy or sync utilizes kernel caching mechanisms that include putting the file on memory before writing to disk giving the impression that is done at better speeds.

Cons: None I can think of.
By the way newegg posting 'proof', can abrevitate block size, it thinks you are saying b and s (stands for BLOCK SIZE).

Other Thoughts: I got it under $34, not bad for a USB 3.0 128GB thumb drive. Good drive for the price!

5 out of 5 eggs Stable, great drive! 07/23/2014

This review is from: Seagate Central STCG4000100 4TB Cloud Storage System

Pros: I have this drive hooked up to my private network, I can ssh over to the static ip as root no password. This drive has been working non-stop for a year now.
I use Seagate Dashboard to manage my backups, drive seems fast for reads and writes.
I can access it over Linux and windows.
4TB share over the network it's no bad it all from such a small device.
Price tag for a 4TB NAS device it's really nice!

Cons: It has been very stable for over a year, no problems.

Other Thoughts: I recomend this drive, it works and it works good! it's work horse!
I can access it from my Fedora Linux, CentOS server and windows machines.
Seagate Dashboard is a plus for this drive, besides creating backup plans from weekly, daily, constant backups you can backup your online social media from facebook.
