Spigen Neo Hybrid Gunmetal Case for iPhone 6 (4.7
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Like a glove 02/09/2015

This review is from: Spigen Neo Hybrid Gunmetal Case for iPhone 6 (4.7") SGP11031

Pros: Almost as slim as the phone. Thinner than any of my friends cases and looks better.

Easier to hold the phone than without a case.

Rubber rim on front gives something to grip and when turned face-down, won't slide around or scratch the screen.

Bottom port holes are great for pinky finger rests in vertical position. Makes holding it more comfortable than without.

Buttons click perfectly fine. Not sure what other the review is talking about. In fact, I prefer having separate volume up and down button action instead of the "rocker".

Cons: I find the iPhone 6 a little "slippery" without a case. This rubber back is an upgrade from the smooth back of the actual phone in terms of grip, but it could be a little more rubbery.

Other Thoughts: I shopped long and hard for the perfect case and tried out at least a dozen. This is the one to get and at an excellent price.

Also, the "PayPal Here" card reader still fits perfectly in the headphone jack. This was important to me.

Corsair Gaming MM200 Mouse Mat - Standard Edition
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic 02/09/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming MM200 Mouse Mat - Standard Edition

Pros: I wish my whole desk was made out of this smooth rubbery microfiber.

Large yet thin size allows room to lower mouse DPI sensitivity for more accurate pointing and long "mouse strokes".

Black doesn't show dirt. xD

The larger pad also gives you the option to change mouse's position around the desk without moving the mousepad, too.

Cons: Can only hope the cloth doesn't fold off the rubber over the years.

Other Thoughts: Tested with a SteelSeries Sensei laser mouse. It's undoubtedly a leap up from a regular off-the-shelf mousepad.

It's pretty huge. Be sure you have the desk space for it, but since it's so thin, your keyboard can always overlap the mousepad if not.

Seagate Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive for MAC 1TB USB 3.0 STDS1000100 Silver/Black
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Standard USB 3.0 External HDD 01/08/2015

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim Portable Drive for MAC 1TB USB 3.0 STDS1000100 Silver/Black

Pros: Very compact design with a nice aluminum cover on a plastic USB 3.0 hard disk enclosure.

Cons: The aluminum "half-shell" is extremely then and will become dented easily.

LED doesn't blink to show activity. It simply stays on to indicate it has power.

Other Thoughts: The only thing making this a "Mac Hard Drive" is that it's pre-formatted in HFS+ file system for use with Time Machine. If you wants both PC and Mac compatibility you must format it in exFAT, but Time Machine doesn't support exFAT. Formatting the drive requires no special software. See below:

Format on Windows:
In Windows click "Start" > Type "Disk Management" > Press "Enter" > Look for the drive at the top > Right click it > "Format" > Select "exFAT" > Click "Format"

Format for Time Machine on Mac:
Open "Mac HD" > "Applications" > "Utilities" > "Disk Utility" > Look for drive on the left > Click "Erase" > Select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" > Click "Erase" twice

Opening enclosure reveals HDD information:
Model: ST1000LM024
Part Number: HN-M101MBB/AV2
Revision A
F/W 2BA30002

USB 3.0 file system speed:
File Write: 64.5 MB/s
File Read: 106 MB/s

HD Tach Results:
Burst Speed: 114.0 MB/s
Average Read: 88.3 MB/s
Random Access: 17.5ms
Sequential Read: Graph curves down from 118 MB/s at beginning to 65 MB/s at the end of the platter.
