Seagate Expansion 8TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Relatively low cost per GB of storage.
- Seagate is one of the more reliable brands
- Small physical foot print considering the capacity.

Cons: - Sub par average read/write speed compared to competition.
- Read/Write speeds are inconsistent and can vary largely pending on amount of/size of files being transferred.
- 1 year warranty?

Other Thoughts: The small manufacture warranty is concerning and I guess I'll need to see how it fares with time. I will update back later should something go awry.

Bottom Line/TL;DR: If you're looking for a good high capacity storage solution for a relatively low cost, this is the one to get!

Silicon Power 128GB Elite microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 75MB/s (SP128GBSTXBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Fast large capacity card at a very modest price.
- Lifetime Warranty!
- Formatted exFat outta the box!

Cons: - Speeds vary and aren't too quick to read or write. Thankfully though, they're not too far from advertised.
- Pending your device and your use you may require a faster card.
- Full sized SD adapter doesn't mean this card will work in all devices.
*My Sony cam didn't like the adapter and the card was not able to be used.*

Other Thoughts: I bought a 128gb S*msung card exactly 4 months ago for $99.99. No lifetime warranty and not much faster than this card... Food for thought.

Overall though, I'd say this is a pretty good deal for the money if you need a pretty cheapo high capacity "do-it-all" type micro SD.

GIGABYTE GA-X150-PLUS WS (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel C232 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - No Frills mobo supporting all the latest and greatest chips from intel? YES!
- Cheap.
- Works As you'd expect.

Cons: - Too Cheap. Poor UEFI implementation without much support from the OEM.
- Not a lot of extras in the box.
- Lacks some of the other features you'd find in comparable boards.

Other Thoughts: - Overall good budget board for a newbie or someone who just needs a cheap PC.
- Wouldn't recommend to anyone who knows what they're doing or wants to do overclocking.
