Rosewill 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Too big and doesn't last 02/13/2016

This review is from: Rosewill 17.3" Notebook Computer Backpack Model RMBP-12001

Pros: -Lots of compartments

Cons: -It's too big. If you want to carry all sorts of junk, you'll consider this a pro. If you just want a bag that carries your laptop and don't want it like 4 inches bigger than your laptop, or you are not 6 feet 5 inches tall, this is not the bag for you. It's ridiculously big for no reason. Hard to find spots to put in the car when traveling with a lot of other belongings.

-It doesn't last. I used it a total of maybe 30 times (I only carry on special occasions - I don't even take it to school or work or anything like that daily like some poor saps probably do). The strip is coming off and the little inside compartment where you place your phone/mouse is coming off.

Other Thoughts: I do NOT recommend this unless you like to keep purchasing bags repeatedly or want a really large bag that doesn't last.

Targus Trek Carrying Case (Backpack) for 16

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Size - Not too big 02/07/2016

This review is from: Targus Trek Carrying Case (Backpack) for 16" Notebook - Black, Yellow, White Accent

Pros: -This one fits my 15.6 inch Acer laptop perfectly with barely half a inch or an inch to spare (which I like).
-It's not overly huge.
-Has a tiny Velcro slot which fit my mid-sized wireless Logitech mouse.
-Has padding between the laptop and the other immediate compartment, which is where I've put my power supply.
-Seems of quality material, but we shall see.
-Did I mention it's not too huge? For those who are petite, this is the one for you. Do not buy a Rosewill laptop bag if you are petite (see below).

Cons: -I wish it had better padding between the laptop and the area next to my actual back. But then again, all these laptops are like this. Since my Rosewill laptop bag (noted below) started ripping only after about 20-30 uses (I only bring my laptop to friends and family's houses on special occasions, so it's not like I bring it to school daily or something), I'm going to strip out the padding and use that on this Targus bag.

Other Thoughts: -I had a Rosewill laptop backpack meant for a 17 inch laptop but it was 3-4 inches taller than the laptop, which meant the bag was FRIGGEN huge. It is great for someone who's 7 feet, but for even someone who's 5'7", it was still too large. It looked ridiculous and was hard to fit in my large SUV.
-I've used Targus brands before for laptops and they generally last a long time (5+ years), so hopefully this one will too.

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -10k RPM, what can you say?
-Fast!
-Still working after more than 3 years.

Cons: -It's not an SSD
-It's hecka not as fast as an SSD (probably 1/4th the speed)

Other Thoughts: -I got this puppy when it was on sale for $79.99. It's over $200 now. Are you kidding????????? SSD prices have gotten much lower than this!
-Just get an SSD. If you're buying at this price, there's something really wrong with you.
-Western Digital has lagged behind with SSD technology, and their hard drives are getting more expensive and has hecka lots of horrible reviews. I fear they were going down the drain. I used to buy WD drives exclusively, but have found the Toshiba 3TB (3 year warranty) to be very reliable. Too bad Toshiba made a new model with only 1 year warranty. Talk about taking care of your customers. Oh how the mighty (WD) hath fallen! WD recently agreed to purchase SanDisk in Oct, 2015. Hopefully Western Digital doesn't mess up SanDisk, which has some super fast EXTREME USB 3.0 sticks after Corsair's GTX series, has awesome super fast 95MB/s+ SDCards, and decent SSDs.
