TOSHIBA PH3400U-1I72 4TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought two and put them in RAID 0 for a video editing rig.
My crystal disk scores....

Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 391.518 MB/s
Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 317.572 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 3.668 MB/s [ 895.5 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 4.391 MB/s [ 1072.0 IOPS]
Sequential Read (T= 1) : 373.903 MB/s
Sequential Write (T= 1) : 299.292 MB/s
Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 0.967 MB/s [ 236.1 IOPS]
Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 4.365 MB/s [ 1065.7 IOPS]

Not bad eh? Rivals my 120gb Sandisk Extreme SSD in everything but random writes. Beats the ssd in sequential writes.

Cons: Wish they would increase platter density. We have been at 1tb platters for a long time now. More platters = less longevity.

Other Thoughts: Will hopefully make videos with these for a long time.
Nice soft foam packing.
I have used Toshiba HDDs exclusively for 3 years now and have never had one fail or even a single issue. They are quiet, cool and quick. I highly recommend them.

Sennheiser HD439 Over-Ear Headphones
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good sound, so-so build quality 08/25/2015

This review is from: Sennheiser HD439 Over-Ear Headphones

Pros: good looks
good sound
detachable/extra cable
comfy, flexible

Cons: small ear cups
no bag
not the best constuction

Other Thoughts: not worth $100... got mines free in a combo deal
would have paid maybe $40 - certainly not worth much more than that.

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Built to Cardassian standards, not Federation 08/25/2015

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDCR480GB-7-A

Pros: Bought two and both worked fine.
Cheap and Big
550mb/s read - 350mb/s write
500gb is still a lot of space - should not need another boot drive upgrade for the lifetime of the computer
works fine in an HP Envy 15z

Cons: Slow write speeds
Not great looking
no software add-ons
no stickers
no bracket

Other Thoughts: I have a workstation with a 2tb programs drive, an 8tb Raid 0 video editing array and a 120gb ssd for page file. I also have an 8tb Raid 1 FREENAS 8-core Xeon server. This upgrade completed my journey to building the ultimate home storage network. BLISS
No more data loss.
