SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 08/15/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: the drive itself works well and has lasted about 2 years with no problems for backup storage.

Cons: i took one look at the sealed, black plastic case and removed the drive (warranty void). it was obvious that the drive would overheat with a plastic case and no ventilation, so i put the drive in a Rosewill external case with a built-in fan. problem solved. my Seagate and WD external 3.5 drives have vents, so i keep a table top fan that blows directly on the vents.

Other Thoughts: i don't understand Samsung's thinking on this case design. i would be amazed if it didn't fail with no ventilation. worked fine once i replaced the case.

using this drive is much more expensive when you have to replace the case though.

4 out of 5 eggs JBL LOFT 50 SPEAKERS (pair) 08/02/2014

This review is from: JBL Loft 50 Three-way Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Pair)

Pros: the speakers appear to be good quality and are very narrow in width (barely wider than the 4 inch front drivers).the sound is good in my smallish master bedroom.

Cons: the packaging is terrible. both speakers are in one large box with foam padding at the top and bottom with a narrow spacer around the middle. the box arrived with 3 large holes all the way through to the speakers and numerous dents. the bottom was crushed looking, like it had been dropped off a number of trucks. except for the top and bottom, there is only the cardboard box and a 2 inch air space between the speakers and the impacts. i was suprised that the speakers themselves weren't damaged.

Other Thoughts: speaker placement is critical with these speakers largely dut to the side mounted woofers, one on each side at different heights. i moved them around while listening to different types of music until they sounded right. you can't put them too close to anything to the sides, or the bass goes away.

Seagate Backup Plus 2TB USB 3.0 3.5

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..
