Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Worthwhile External Hard Drive 05/31/2015

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB2000100

Pros: Plug and play simple setup
Internal drive: Seagate ST2000DM001 which uses 1 TB platters
The activity light is a dull blue that isn’t bothersome or overly bright while in use
The setup.exe file on the drive loads a page to register your drive with Seagate very easily and quickly.

Performance results:

Crystal Disk Mark:
• Sequential: Read = 190.0 MB/s, Write = 146.9 MB/s
• 512k: Read = 64.21 MB/s, Write = 95.23 MB/s
• 4k: Read = 0.752 MB/s, Write = 6.547 MB/s
• 4k QD32: Read = 0.638 MB/s, Write = 7.896 MB/s

ATTO Disk Benchmark:
• Read: 190.88 MB/sec
• Write: 155.32 MB/sec

HD Tune
• Minimum: 88.0 MB/s
• Maximum: 153.26 MB/s
• Average: 109.9 MB/s
• Access Time: 14.7 ms
• Burst Rate: 122.2 MB/s

Power Consumption
• Idle – 5.2 Watts
• Load – 8.6 Watts

Maximum Temperature while testing: 107.6 °F

Cons: The drive makes a noticeable and possibly annoying humming sound when powered on.
No rubber feet on either side for horizontal placement only vertical.
One year warranty isn’t very good considering if you bought the internal drive this unit utilizes it would have a 2 year warranty.

Wish they used a regular USB type B instead of a micro type B as the micro version is very weak, flimsy and easily broken compared to the non-micro version.

As others have stated a power button would be a nice change to this device as it just powers on once you plug in the USB cable. So if it stays at one computer it’s always going to be on with your computer which may or may not be desirable.

Other Thoughts: Overall this external drive offers very good performance for reads and writes in a pleasant looking and small package. I would definitely recommend this drive if you have a USB 3.0 connection as it gets the job done well at an affordable price.

*All tests were conducted three times to ensure accuracy and repeatability of results.

Linksys WRT1200AC Wireless AC1200 Dual-Band and Wi-Fi Wireless Router with Gigabit and USB 3.0 Ports and eSATA, Works with Linksys WRT1900AC Wi-Fi Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Features external antennae which can be replaced if so desired.
Beamforming Technology – more reliable signal once connected.
The packaging was exceptional and like none I have ever seen for a router.
Very good build quality, better than some previsions generation routers form Linksys.
Features a network map of all of your connected devices and even has an internet usage section that shows the bandwidth that each devise is currently using.

The UI was very fast and fluid when running on a wired or 5 GHz connection, it’s the most responsive UI performance I’ve ever seen in a router.

Has a very powerful SoC for a router. A dual core 1.33 GHz Marvell Armada 38X with 512 MB of DDR3 memory is very impressive for a router, it’s basically a low end smartphone.

Cons: Weird performance issue with the Wireless-AC speeds when I was far away from the router as shown in my benchmarks that the 5 GHz Wireless-N connection was faster.
Wish the internet usage page showed the statistics a little more in real time, the manual refresh takes away from that cool feature.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a fantastic router hardware wise as it’s the fastest, most powerful and best coverage from any router I’ve ever used. Along with the updated features Linksys has thrown in to their UI and a fantastic SoC that provides exceptional USB 3.0 speeds, this is a great buy.
