Seagate Backup Plus 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Seagate Backup Plus 2TB 02/10/2014

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA2000100 Black

Pros: 2tb, capacity, price, reliability (see other thoughts)

Cons: poor ventilation, external cooling required.

Seagate's idiotic proprietary cable connector. two of the three Seagate 2gb external drives that i own have this horrible connector. i have to pick up the drive and wiggle it around a while on two of them to get the plug to go in.

Other Thoughts: these drives seem to work reliably IF YOU PUT A SMALL FAN BLOWING DIRECTLY INTO THE BACK VENTS.

look at the drive size when reading a review!
you may notice that the really bad reviews are mostly for the 3 & 4tb models. why does NewEgg put reviews for other size drives with the 2tb models? there is obviously a difference in the reliability of different size drives since they have different hdd's inside..

PYRAMID PR2500/SEA2500 Professional Home Studio Pre-Amplifier

4 out of 5 eggs a bargain 09/23/2013

This review is from: PYRAMID PR2500/SEA2500 Professional Home Studio Pre-Amplifier

Pros: it works ok, nothing special. it doesn't look as cheap as the pictures indicate.

Cons: the only thing i didn't like about it is the one-piece front panel with non-removable rack mounts. it won't fit in my stereo cabinet, i had to put it on top of the cabinet. i guess you could cut them off if you have a deft touch. oh well, i can live with the rack mounts for another two weeks.

Other Thoughts: i bought this preamp to use with my new Sherbourn power amp for one month until i can buy the Emotiva USP-1 preamp. the unit i received is different from the pictures on NewEgg. it is the model SEA-2500X. the main differences are that it has a input selector knob, instead of push buttons, and the colored panels around the front controls are much more subdued in color (dark burgandy instead of purple & very dark blue instead of the bright blue in the pics). i prefer the knob and darker colors that came on my unit. the unit looks much better. the volume knob has indents, but you can set the volume between the indents so not a problem. it would have been a perfect cheapie if it had removable rack mounts. i haven't seen ANY other preamps for any where near 65 dollars. i'll keep it for a small computer room system. well worth the price.

Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1.5TB USB 2.0 Silver External Hard Drive STAS1500500
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs case was bad, drive ok 04/17/2013

This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1.5TB USB 2.0 Silver External Hard Drive STAS1500500

Pros: drive worked fine for 6 months.

Cons: unit stopped working after 6 months.

Other Thoughts: since i had nothing to lose, i opened the case (a nightmare to open) and put the drive in a Rosewill external hdd case with a fan, and the drive has worked flawlessly for the past year.

bought the unit locally for seventy nine dollars on clearance a year and a half ago.
