Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have a Seagate USB 3.0 1TB, 3TB, 4TB & a 2nd 4TB external drive due to arrive shortly. I have been impressed by their transfer speeds in both directions. Using TeraCopy to copy & move files to & from these drives using USB 3.0 ports, I have found that the transfer speeds are very close to the speed of my newer internal drives, and at least 10% faster than the oldest of my internal drives.
They are all easy plug & play. My oldest drive is almost a year old. None have given me any problems so far
They are much faster & easier to use than another brand external USB 3.0 drive I have..
My computer is a multi-boot setup; XP, Win7 & Win8. These drives work great with all 3 operating systems.

Cons: Possibly the backup software. See Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: The backup software that came with my 1TB drive was very basic & limited; although Seagate says there is a better version for download free from their site. I have not tried the “better” version or the versions on the later drives because I do not want multiple backup formats. All of my compressed backups use a 3rd party paid backup product.

SunSun Lighting A19 LED Light Bulb / E26 Base / 12W / 75W Replace / 1100 Lumen / Dimmable / UL / 3000K / Soft White
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this bulb to replace the bulb in a shop light that many people use to work under vehicles with. It just takes a couple of hits to the cage that holds the bulb and both incandescent & CFL bulbs burn out, usually amounting to 1 or 2 uses before bulb replacement. With the LED bulb installed, I’ve used the shop light dozens of times with ZERO burn outs.

Cons: High initial cost

Other Thoughts: I use LED bulbs elsewhere because no flickering like that of a fluorescent bulb & no waiting for the bulb to warm up to provide maximum light. I live in a hot climate. This bulb saves not only the 53W over a standard bulb, those watts=heat. Because of inefficiencies in removing heat using A/C, the A/C unit is going to use about 75 more watts to remove the 53W of heat. Basically each 75W standard bulb I replace with one of these is going to save me about 128W of electricity.
If I was in a cold climate, the extra heat produced by a standard bulb might help in lowering my heating bill.
Even a CFL that produces the same amount of light uses 20-25W & I’ve rarely had a CFL last more than 2 years. LED bulbs are supposed to last around 9 years. If one gets broken, there is no sharp glass or poisonous mercury to deal with.
