CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 16GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-16GB-NA

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic Little Device 03/19/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 16GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-16GB-NA

Pros: Small, well-made/solid, microusb and standard usb connections. This little flash drive has now been commandeered by my wife. She uses the Android devices in our home more than myself. I was able to download some movies and shows to my Macbook Air and play them on my PS3 and also on my wife's Samsung Galaxy S3 and her Galaxy Tab 3 and my Galaxy Tab 1. Transfer speeds are quite fast and I had no compatibility issues with any devices I used this device with.

Cons: It is small enough that losing it could be a problem. It's all black but included in the package was a yellow cap for the Microusb plug, which would make it a bit easier to spot should it be dropped or knocked around the floor by a curious feline.

Other Thoughts: This is a very well made and well designed device. It's very portable and, as I mentioned above, is especially useful for Android devices. After testing the drive out and using it on different devices it has been claimed by my wife as hers. I was actually in the market for a new flash drive...perhaps I will buy my own now.

5 out of 5 eggs A Miracle Worker 02/13/2014

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WA750RE 150Mbps Universal WiFi Range Extender

Pros: Easy to set up. I used both a Windows 7 desktop and a Macbook Air (no ethernet port) to set this device up. I used the Web Browser method on both (I did not try the WPS button since I have a TP-LINK router and that just seemed too easy).

It comes with a disk, very clear instructions, and an ethernet cable. It just seems like so many manufacturers leave out little things like this for the sake of cost-cutting. If I'm buying a device that needs at least one (if not more) ethernet cables...why not include at least one? This is a device primarily meant to be wireless and it came with an ethernet cable. +1 for going that little bit extra.

The most MOST important thing about this device...IT ONLY TAKES UP ONE PLUG. It wouldn't work like that on a power strip, however, this device is meant to be installed somewhere away from where most of the other computer equipment is. It's still pretty bulky...but if you put it in the top outlet on the wall you can still use the bottom outlet. It may seem trivial...but hey different strokes.

The reason I call this little guy a miracle worker is because I now have wireless access in my garage. I've NEVER been able to get a wireless signal out there but now I can. It also reaches out into the street...but that's what wireless security is for, right?

Cons: I honestly can't think of any. About the only thing that I could mention is the brightness of the wheel-o-lights on the front that indicate the device's status, but that's piddly stuff.

Other Thoughts: I've kicked around getting one of these for awhile but never knew if it was worth it. I can honestly say I should have gotten one of these sooner. I ran a networking cable from a switch across my basement ceiling (had to drill holes in the joists) and out and up the wall of the garage over to a separate router just so I can have internet in the garage for my laptop I use to keep track of measurements for my woodworking projects and the maintenance schedule and part numbers for my vehicles. Sometimes it's nice to be able to look something up while I'm working and not have to run all the way inside and upset my wife by getting sawdust and/or grease all over everything I touch. Well now I can repurpose that wire for the basement for when I finish it and turn it into a media room or a home theater...or to stream children's television and learning shows when that becomes a playroom. *sigh* Maybe NewEgg will send me a bigger house to review as an EggXpert!

5 out of 5 eggs Great Upgrade for PS4 Hard Drive 12/25/2013

This review is from: Western Digital WD AV-25 WD10JUCT 1TB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Quiet, cool, plenty of storage. When I first got my PS3 systems I upgraded to the largest drives available at the time (Western Digital 740GB drives) but always wanted more space. After hooking up my PS4, installing and downloading some games, and capturing and uploading some video clips I noticed I'd used quite a bit of space...which was rather troubling since I'd only had it for a week or so. I knew I'd want to upgrade the hard drive but hadn't really looked into what was available...and then I received an invitation to review this hard drive. Excellent timing!

The drive is the perfect height (9.5mm). It takes a little wiggling to get the side mount screws attached but once installed the drive is very quiet and cool. System seems to boot up faster and load games faster. It was a very simple installation (slide the top panel of the PS4 to the left, take out a top screw and then 4 side screws)

Cons: As with any hard drive you won't actually get 1TB of useable space. The manufacturer calculates a mb as 1,000kb and Operating Systems calculate a mb as 1,024kb. All hard drive sizes can be calculated with a fair amount of accuracy by simply multiplying the advertised size by 0.931. which should give you the approximate useable size.

Other Thoughts: Still, 931GB of space in your brand new PS4 (or even your somewhat older but still awesome PS3) is impressive and means your PS4 has plenty of storage for all of those games that are going to be released in coming years. I can't really judge the hard drive that comes standard in the PS4...but it seems pretty junky and is DEFINITELY loud. My wife commented on how noisy the PS4 was when we started Knack together. After replacing the hard drive she was quite pleased and again commented, this time on how quiet the system was.

I'm sure this hard drive would work fine in other applications but it seems like other reviewers have those covered. I was quite excited to crack open a practically brand new piece of gaming hardware and go poking around inside of it with a screwdriver. Don't be afraid! Buy this drive and upgrade that Playstation 4!
