SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs nearly perfect but for short USB cable 07/04/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 2TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D201TDB Black

Pros: No vibration
Only sound is slight whirring
Internal drive is 7200 RPM (ST200D001 1E6164)

Cons: USB 3.0 cable only 2 feet long, which could be too short for large desktop computers with only rear USB 3.0 ports.

Not the best ventilation for horizontal orientation

Other Thoughts: 7200 internal drive (ST2000DM001-1E6164), but this isn't guaranteed. Vibration level of the ST2000DM001 varies by sample, maybe by version.

Vent holes are only on bottom and at back when drive is vertical, so drive runs hot when horizontal and reached 57C during a one hour seek test (room temp 25C). I prefer horizontal orientation so the drive can't be knocked over.

XFX TS Series P1550SXXB9 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Made by Seasonic (MK12II series) with Japanese capacitors that will likely outlast the 5-year warranty, plenty of cables and connectors, power rated at 50 Celcius, meaning power capacity at actual operating temperatures will be higher than advertised.

Cons: Cables are sleeved, meaning heatshrink that holds sleeving near each connector makes cables stiff

Other Thoughts: 2 floppy disk drive power connectors -- future proofing?

Acer S220HQLAbd  Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sharp picture, no dead or stuck pixels. 3-wire grounded power supply -- better for safety and surge protection.

Cons: Blue LED blinks so brightly in standby mode that airplanes can use it as a beacon in fog.

Somewhat confusing controls, not explained well by the user manual.

Brightness and contrast controls don't allow dimming the picture enough.

Other Thoughts: The sample I bought in 2012 has been problem-free and operates identically to this one, including in regards to not allowing the picture to be dimmed enough. I'm 3 feet from a large south window and have the brightness and contrast controls all the way down to zero, but the picture is still bright enough.
