1Byone Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range, 10-Foot Coaxial Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Nothing; no reception 04/04/2016

This review is from: 1Byone Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range, 10-Foot Coaxial Cable

Pros: It was cheap. (Eight bucks)

Cons: Over the air stations are about 25 miles from my home (as the crow flies). I received not even a hint of a signal on the three network channels not the two PBS channels. Put the antenna in a window facing the transmitters so house materials wouldn't come into play.

Other Thoughts: Rolled the dice on this one and lost. It would cost more to send it back than I paid. It might work if you're closer, but the claim of up to 25 miles reception is exaggerated.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Replaced spinning drive in new laptop and install went pretty much flawlessly. (See Other thoughts.) Samsung software CD included migration tool and Magician but downloading same from Samsung's website yielded newer versions.

Cons: Prices on this particular model jump around daily (sometimes as much as 20%) so watch for awhile or you'll pay too much.

Other Thoughts: This drive was purchased to make a new cheapy HP laptop with only 4 gigs of RAM run faster, and run faster it did! I may not bump the memory to 8 gigs as it'll just be too fast. <grin>

But... note that Samsung's data migration software will not copy your recovery partition so you'll have to make other arrangements in order to be able to reload Windows from scratch in the future. And if your upgrading from W7 to W10 as I did, you'll need to do the upgrade before migration because W10 balked at the upgrade when it saw the Evo didn't contain the recovery partition. Went back and did the upgrade to W10 on the spinning drive which retained the recovery partition and then migrated everything to the Evo and it all worked. But only the boot partition migrates.

Rosewill RX301-PU3-35B - 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: In three months of ownership I've used it about five times with both 2.5 and 3.5 inch drives and no problems or failures whatsoever. At nineteen bucks with free shipping on a Shell Shocker deal you can't ask for much more.

Cons: Cords a little short, LED a little bright but that's picking nits.

But... when plugging in a 2.5 inch drive be careful as the perimeter surrounding the slot is slightly larger than the drive all the way around so there's no lateral support for the drive. It just sticks up through the slot and you want to make sure when plugging it in and out that it's aligned perfectly vertical since the connecting tabs on 2.5 inch drives are notoriously fragile. Just saying.
