OCZ Vector 180 VTR180-25SAT3-480G 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works in PS4, 480GB, SATA 3, OCZ Barefoot 3 controller, Stable, Quiet, Runs cool, Free cloning software, Reliable, Looks great, Seems durable.

I was able to install this SSD in my PC very quickly. System booted in less than 12 seconds from powered off to searching the web compared to over a minute with my old SATA 3 HDD. Very stable with no issues running on my PC. All my apps opened very fast and my entire system worked much better.

I installed this drive in my PS4 and it went smoothly without any issues. PS4 runs much faster now and I've easily cut my load times in half. Almost the same amount of storage as the standard HDD it came with. The PS4 runs quieter, cooler, and smoother than it did before the swap.

Cons: When using this drive in my PS4 I found that the system no longer supports suspending apps while the system in rest mode. I was able to put the system to rest but it would only crash when I tried to power on the system. This happens even when there are no apps running but the option is enabled in the system settings. System works perfectly when that option is disabled. I'm using a launch model PS4 so that might have something to do with it.

Other Thoughts: I love this drive and I'll be getting another sometime in the future for my PC. Other than the issue with suspending apps on the PS4 I have no problems and I can deal with that. While I was using it in my PC I ran AS SSD Benchmark and here are my results.

I've been very pleased overall with it and I'd recommend you give it go. You'll be pleased you did, and as always Newegg rocks!

ASUS Black ZenFone 2 View Flip Cover Deluxe (ZE551ML) 90AC00F0-BCV006
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice texture for easy gripping. Protects the screen. Nice window on the front for easy access to some apps.

Cons: There is not a latch of any kind to keep the case open or shut. Replaces the back of the phone so that's one more thing you'll need to keep track of. The plastic is a little too flimsy causing the window not to line up perfectly depending on how you hold the phone. No access to the volume rocker when the case is open and folded over making it difficult to change call volume in the middle of a call. Too pricey for what it is.

Other Thoughts: I just don't see the value in this case at all. It does protect the phone so long as you are able to keep it closed. I'm amazed by the lack of quality on this case after seeing how nice the phone is, and I'm guessing there will be a redesign soon. For the price I'd expect to see a new relocated volume button on the flip cover since it's completely covering them while it's open. I'd also like to see a nicer hinge with a spring or some other method to keep it open or shut. I'm not a fan of cases that force you to replace the battery cover with the case itself either. I'd pass on this one until they fix the issues or lower the price substantially.

Asus Zenfone 2 - Red (ZE551ML-23-4G64GN-RD), 5.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Unbeatable price for everything it has to offer. Very reliable and stable running Android 5.0 Lollipop with 4GBs of RAM. Dual SIM 4G LTE capable with great signal strength and call quality on ATT's network. 64 GB's of expandable storage. 5.5" beautiful 1080p HD display. 2.3 GHz quad core processor. 13 MP camera that takes excellent pictures. Easy to hold and use. Charges very quickly in about an hour from dead. Great build quality and it looks like a higher priced phone.

Cons: Battery is not removable. The placement of the volume buttons on the back take some getting use to. Some setup is required for optimal usage depending on your cellular network.

Other Thoughts: I'm very impressed with this phone. ASUS has set a new standard for affordable phones with it. I really like the feel of it in my hand with the curved back and it has a perfect weight to it. Sure the camera could be a little bit higher end but at this price there's no complaints from me. Pictures are very natural looking and easy to capture without blurring. I love having 64GB of storage and still having a removable option with an micro sd card slot. The phone is very responsive without needing to reboot it everyday and runs everything I've thrown at it with the massive 4GB's of ram and the 2.3 GHz processor. The phone charges very fast and although the battery life isn't amazing it does well enough to get me through most days. I do wish it was a removable battery. I noticed that some apps are buggy and it's most likely due to the fact that this phone just came out and they just need to be optimized for it. The volume rocker being located on the back of the phone is a bit strange but I like it. It sets it apart from most of the other phones and you don't accidentally change the volume while holding the phone or passing it around although it did take a little getting used to.
