ezDISK EZ520 USB3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure - 2.5inch Couple Edition, Screwless Design (Tool Free) - Support SATA I/II/III Hard Drive
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: HDD enclosures are red
HDD enclosures are blue
They come in convenient packaging
And represent a great value!

Cons: They require a cord
To connect to its host
If dropped they might crack
Cuz, of plastic, it's made most

Other Thoughts: If multicolor suits you
Cuz black breaks the deal
Or you'd like to get two
Then this is a steal!

LG Black Optimus F6 T-Mobile No Contract 4G Smart Phone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs For smartphone hackers, the deal of the century 07/23/2014

This review is from: LG Black Optimus F6 T-Mobile No Contract 4G Smart Phone

Pros: Insanely Inexpensive
Highly Capable hardware
LTE-enabled on all North American GSM networks (A, T)
Right-Sized and Lightweight
Powerful enough for all daily tasks

Cons: A unicorn - hard to find on sale
Only a limited variety of custom ROMs (no CM AFAICT)
Gimmicky manufacturer-supplied add-on apps
ROM updates currently being teased, but no sure delivery date
Still wish it came with more internal memory, just in case

Other Thoughts: Got this on sale here, though I recently saw this elsewhere on sale at a big-box store for a Hamilton less than the post-rebate price here (which already got this phone into sub-Franklin range).

If you are well-versed in the ways of rooting Android, managing ClockworkMod, and have a spare 8Gb-or-better MicroSD card at your disposal, then don't walk - instead, RUN - to NewEgg and get this device.

I bought this as a backup device, daily driver, ace-in-the-hole insurance policy in the event something bad ever were to happen to my Nexus 5. Guess what? This thing, properly configured with a properly-partitioned MicroSD card and the Link2SD app, provides 99.5% of the functionality of my N5 at a quarter of the cost. Battery life is better than the N5. LTE is spot-on on the "A" and "T" networks (10 and 18Mbps, respectively, witnessed here). The replaceable battery is a wonderful touch. The lower-res screen is not an issue for me. CPU? I can't really tell a difference in daily operation.

Honestly, the only thing I'm missing with the F6 is the KitKat niceties like swipe-up-for-Google Now, updated lockscreen widgets, and the pano photo capabilities.

I've heard rumors that LG plans to release an updated KitKat 4.4.4 ROM. We'll see about that. Until then, I'm happy as a clam.

What an incredible value!

Corsair Force Series GT 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great at first, even better a year later... 04/25/2013

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GT 2.5" 180GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F180GBGT-BK

Pros: Fast!
Corsair supports their product!

Cons: Likely firmware bug caused random 60-second-long lockups on 2012. But a recent firmware update appears to have solved this.
Corsair support Web site is a little hard to navigate and not as forthcoming as I would have hoped.

Other Thoughts: Ran this on a Thinkpad T60 with Windows 7 64 bit through 2012 into April 2013. It would randomly lock up for 60 seconds at a time a couple times a day. I would take a bio break, and the machine would be just fine.

This month, I wiped the drive, upgraded the firmware to 5.x, and put it in a Thinkpad T530 with Windows 7. It has been flawless. The system moves faster than I can think!
