DEEPCOOL N6000 Laptop Cooling Pad 17
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Not for some newer styled laptops 09/10/2014

This review is from: DEEPCOOL N6000 Laptop Cooling Pad 17" Metal Mesh Panel 200mm Fan with Blue LED

Pros: Lightweight
Large Quiet Fan
Aluminum Top/Bottom
Supports up to 17" Laptops
Props the laptop up to a nice viewing angle
Keeps your legs cool as well

I couldn't really provide much more indepth pro's on the performance because my model laptop has a hinge intake/exhaust system and not a bottom or side system that would better utilize this mat. It seems like it would do a great job for laptops with other cooling options though due to the angle/size of the fan in relation to the laptop support.

Cons: Fan system does not cool every type of laptop
The plastic parts in between the metal top/bottom are very cheap feeling and if dropped seems like it would break.
This cooling pad is very thick and cumbersome

I have a laptop model in which the intake and output are located in the hinge of the laptop but still has some vent holes in the bottom of the laptop. This hinge style vent system on the laptop is incompatible with the cooling fan style. Newer, thinner, & more powerful laptops are adopting this new design so consider that before buying this mat. Evga X & Fallout New Vegas were played on the laptop on and off the mat for an hour each and it did not make any cooling difference the entire time. Just about the same temperatures on/off (45 degrees low and 66 degrees high). The only thing it did for me was keep my legs cool when it was on my lap.

Other Thoughts: Please make sure that your laptops cooling system is compatible with this model cooling pad before purchase.

FREMO P130 13000mAh Power Bank Charger & Dual Port USB Car Charger for iPhone, iPad, Galaxy S5, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Sleek Design
-2 USB ports for Charging
- Free Car Adapter for USB
-13000 mAh & 5.1V/2.0A output
-Gives numerous charges to devices on full battery

The product itself is not cheap feeling, It uses mostly a metal casing with plastic ends. It feels pretty durable and solid due to the metal. I really do appreciate when things use real materials like this.

Off of a fully charged unit I was able to charge my Nokia Lumia 1520 smart phone from dead to full 2.5 times. An Ipad Mini w/ Retina will recharge fully twice off of this unit as well.

Because of the output of the battery it charges my devices at a fairly quick speed. I really like that.

Cons: -Takes about 7 hours to fully charge this unit from a fully depleted state (I used my Lumia 1520's wall charger unit to do this, it's a high yield charger)

-As sleek as the design is, it is clearly styled to match Apple devices. So it will not match anything else.

-The 4 LED Design can be misleading at times when trying to figure out how charged the battery is. I'd much prefer some kind of bar meter or at least more LED's to more effectively gauge the charge (6-10). Judging how much charge is left in quarters is a big window.

-The manual says the batteries only last about 500 charges which is very disappointing.

-I wish the charging cable itself was longer, it is really small (6")

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a very handy product. For those who like to live off the grid for multiple days at a time or those who just travel a lot in general this will come in handy. I really hope they change the aesthetical design to be more non-apple specific so it appeals to broader audience.

Seagate ST500LM021 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Super Fast Mechanical Hard Drive 07/01/2014

This review is from: Seagate ST500LM021 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop Thin Hard Drive

Pros: *Ultra thin form factor (7mm)
*Faster than your average hard drive
*Outperforms SSD's in large quantity small file transfers

I decided to do a real world performance test between 3 different hard drives in order to gain a speed perspective. I put this slim drive up again a Force GT 120GB SSD & 1 TB 7200 RPM Constellation Enterprise HDD. The test consists of 3 different types of files: Large Bulk Compressed Software Image, 3 Movie Files, and a Folder with 1000+ Pictures/Files of various sizes.

Results are below

1000+ Pics/Files (2.84 gb):
Seagate Thin - 430 mb/s
1 TB Constellation = 84 mb/s
Force GT SSD - 96 mb/s

Large Compressed File (10 GB):
Seagate Thin - 128mb/s
1 TB Constellation = 150 mb/s
Force GT SSD - 130 mb/s

3 Movie Files (3 GB ea.):
Seagate Thin - 120 mb/s
1 TB Constellation = 125 mb/s
Force GT SSD - 140 mb/s

I can't explain why the thin drive does so well on large numbers of small files but it was almost instantaneous and 100% reproducible every time with no info loss.

Cons: *Capacity restraint (splitting hairs here)
*Fragile feeling construction

Other Thoughts: It's a top tier hard drive just as everyone else is saying. I would definitely recommend this drive to anyone who does not have access to a SSD. I do wish the warranty was longer though as the construction does seem a bit fragile due to the thinness.
