Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great expansion capabilities 05/19/2015

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 3TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STEB3000100

Pros: The Seagate Expansion Desktop 3TB drive is a very fine looking external USB3 drive. The case is very pleasing to the eyes and looks great sitting on the desk. It has a very professional looking design. The drive itself is huge and can hold hundreds of thousands of mp3 music files, hundreds of HD movie files, and other data galore. It also makes a perfect system backup device using the backup program in Windows or another program like Acronis backup, which I tried and had complete success.

The speed of the drive is quite fast using the USB3 connection. I attached this drive to a MSI x79 motherboard, running Windows 8.1 Pro, and achieved over 150MB/s read and write speeds using Crystal Diskmark.

I attached this to my Mac and reformatted it as an Extended Mac OS and turned on Time Machine, and all went very smooth. So, depending on your system hardware and OS that you use there are several capabilities at hand using the Seagate Expansion drive.

Cons: I have found no real cons or disadvantages using this drive.

Other Thoughts: The package is loaded with a large, fast, quiet, quality built 3TB drive and case. Everything you need is included to plug and play after unboxing. If you need extra storage space, and who doesn't, this is a great drive to consider.

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C11D-16GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The blue color is nice

Cons: 1 bad stick, if installed, the computer would not start. 1 stick is good.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what is happening with G.Skill quality control, but last 2 memory orders had bad sticks. I RMA'd these and hopefully the replacements work ok. $9 to ship back was pretty steep, and any savings were lost on the return.

Corsair  MM600  CH-9000084-WW  Double-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Double-Sided Pleasure 02/15/2015

This review is from: Corsair MM600 CH-9000084-WW Double-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat

Pros: This is a real piece of quality construction. A beauty to look at and use as well. A Solid aluminum plate with 2 different gliding surfaces on either side, plus rubberized corners installed that keeps the mouse mat slightly off the desktop surface. Each surface is quite different with a “rough” side and a “smooth” side. According to Corsair the rough side produces better control and the smooth side provides better gliding characteristics for high speed play. For my testing I used the Kensington Optical Elite mouse with the Diamondeye technology at a high 800 dpi tracking, but far from some of the latest gaming mice. This mouse has very good acceleration and tracking control out of the box using a standard mouse pad. The MM600 Mouse Mat definitely added finer control of the cursor and overall it felt much better using the mouse. After using both sides I have sided with the better control in lieu of the faster gliding from the smooth side. The gripping power of the rubber corners keeps the mat solidly in place. I did not encounter any sliding of the mat during my use.

The mouse mat makes it easy to use your mouse sitting on a chair or couch resting the mat on your lap or couch arm.

Cleaning should not be an issue from my perspective. Warm water on a towel should make for an easy clean up.

Cons: This can easily be a pro, however, it is BIG. Roughly 11”x14”, so make sure your primary spot for the mouse mat has ample room.

Other Thoughts: This IS the best mouse pad/mat I have used. With the 2 distinct surfaces you can flip the mat as often as you like to get the best mouse movement you need. An absolutely wonderful piece to own.
