SAMSUNG 250GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1

5 out of 5 eggs TINY!!!!! 03/23/2015

This review is from: SAMSUNG 250GB USB 3.0 Portable SSD T1

Pros: Cutest little drive I ever layed my eyes on (and I'm a guy).

Very fast, Puts all my flash drives to shame, even on USB 2.0 It hits and holds 34MB/s when my fastest flash drive does 28MB/s.

On USB 3.0 it's a true champion, hitting even its rated speed a few times.

Case seems flexible enough to avoid breakage, yet Rigid enough to protect it's internals from a pretty descent impact.

Cable supplied is tiny, but so is the drive, who wants a 4 foot cable for a 2 1/4" by 1 1/2" by 3/16" drive????

Cons: Drivers supplied right on the drive, but it must be formatted before using correctly on windoze, so save the files on your PC and copy them back. THESE FILES ARE NOT CURRENTLY FROM SAMSUNG. So if you want the software on other PC's you'd be out of luck if you don't.

It's so small I feel like I might loose it out of my pocket when I sit down, not really a con, but still.

Device got VERY warm when transferring 220GB of Video files over USB 3.0.

Other Thoughts: With it's flexible but rigid design it seems to be able to stand the test of time.

It's speed is un-equaled by anything I have tested before.

FREMO P100 10400mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad Air, mini, Galaxy S5, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: With a 2 amp charger it charges very quickly.

Very handy to have to charge any device that can do so over a USB.

Simple design, not to flashy, but cost effective.

Nice dim LED indicators (see cons)

See other thoughts for my experience with the device

Cons: One port for charging devices, one for charging itself.

Very short supplied cable (who doesn't have cables lying around??)

Other Thoughts: This came on the day my Grandmother died, I charged it that night and left for a 540 mile drive to Ohio to help my family, and for her funeral services.

My phone was in constant use for the 8 hour drive, and this thing only lost 2 LEDs of power while doing it, phone still at 100% charge.

I also have a Bluetooth Audio speaker in my car since I just bought it and haven't had a chance to replace the radio as of yet (broken), the battery in that speaker lasted the entire drive (couldn't believe it) and this also fully charged that as well, and it had enough left to charge my phone one more time!!

Recharged it after I got there, and used it all week, recharged it again and did the same for my trip back home.

I live in an area were Ice storms and power outages can be very frequent, I will definitely be keeping this around for that.

Charge it and stow it away for when you need it, at it's current price it is a no brainer!!!

TP-LINK Archer T8E AC1750 Wireless Dual Band PCI Express Adapter IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11b PCI Express Up to 1.3Gbps Wireless Data Rates
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sleek and fan-less with a powerful CPU.

With my TPlink AC 1200 dual band router it connects and performs flawlessly with a steady 650Mb/s data rate.

Perfect for streaming games and Blu-Ray

Easy install on Vista and 7

Cons: Install on Windows 8.1 required me to disconnect my LAN cable before wireless picked up. PITA and many might not figure it out, no egg loss as I would only take away half an egg.

Could not find Driver downloads or updates on-line. This is worrisome as this has it's own CPU so windows has no generic drivers for it....... I'm sure C/S could help if needed.

Other Thoughts: I usually test the range of all wireless devices they send me, but this one is in my gaming rig and lugging this sucker around is no easy task. I'm 80 feet from the router, one wooden and one cinder-block wall between it.
