OGIO Renegade 15

5 out of 5 eggs Another quality Ogio backpack 11/21/2013

This review is from: OGIO Renegade 15" Gaming Laptop/Tablet Backpack Black Pindot Model 111071.317

Pros: Space for everything, if a bit snug.
Same build quality I would expect from a laptop bag of this price.
There's no way I'm going to break any thing in this.

Cons: Is this shoulder pocket a joke?

Shorter straps than I expected, but I am a big guy. I wish the cross strap was removable.

No separate drink pocket, integrated into the bottom pockets.

Any thoughts of fitting a standard 17" laptop in the main pocket are laughable.

Laptop zipper sticks, looks to be hitting part of the fabric when unzipping. Not enough to get caught, but enough to give it pause while unzipping.

Other Thoughts: I've had several Ogio bags. A 7 year old Metro, a 5 year old Metroid, a 6 year old MasterMind, a 3 year old Epic.

It was time to phase out a freebie leather laptop bag I was using for my craptop, and with that came a cycling of bags, and a cause for buying a new one. I picked this one up to house my nice and shiny MacBook Pro Retina 15". It is a snug fit, and I doubt my previous laptop (a 15" HP EliteBook) but I have no concern that anything could be broken. There appear to be 2 layers of hard plastic on each side of the laptop, plus the foam, plus the soft lining. My suitcase doesn't feel this sturdy.

ADATA 64GB Elite UE700 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 200MB/s (AUE700-64G-CBK)

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: No cap to lose. Benched at 200 read, 95 write. Faster than the hard drive this flash drive will be plugged into!

Cons: Lanyard strap not that great for putting on a keychain.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as I was cycling out flash drives for work, and bought this to replace my Adata N005 Pro 32GB (which now becomes my work drive). Whereas its cap was worthless, the new one is faster, bigger, has no cap to lose. Much happier with this drive than its predecessor. Smaller, thinner, nothing to lose; what's not to love?

And, Adata is one of the few companies out there offering a lifetime warranty, so I'll keep going to them.

WD 1TB Elements SE Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBPCK0010BBK-NESN
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs New external for home use 04/24/2013

This review is from: WD 1TB Elements SE Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model WDBPCK0010BBK-NESN

Pros: USB 3.0, cheap, fast (pulling 107MB/s between my 320GB 7200RPM drive and this external), barebones.

Cons: Proprietary connector on the PCB of the drive itself; no standard SATA plug so if the enclosure dies, you can't pull the drive and plug it into something else like you could with older models.

And, since it's a proprietary end, if you need more than the foot they give you, you're out of luck.

Other Thoughts: I have a USB 2.0 Passport 1TB that I use for work. One of the things that I disliked about it was that every time it got plugged in, it gave me a virtual CD full of stuff I didn't care about. I thought that would happen on this one, but it ended up just being a bare drive, no software, no fluff that I would never use.
