Lots of power

RAVPower PB07 10400 mAh Black External Battery Pack Portable Charger Power Bank (Dual USB Outputs, Ultra Compact Design), for iPhone, iPad, Mini; Samsung Galaxy, Note 3; HTC One, EVO; Google Nexus

Pros: This power bank has so much power I often forget to recharge. I can charge my iphone 4 from dead to full about 3 times. I originally bought this for using my iphone while hunting in remote locations for several days. Works perfectly for this.

Cons: Does not charge and power items at the same time. Long time to charge.

Overall Review: The storage bag that it comes with is ok for a freebie but I would buy a real storage case that can accomodate the powercord and any accessory cords you want to keep with it.

Good while it lasted

Pros: Fast. Have only used a one computer faster than the one built with this drive and it was a Intel Extreme and this one would hold it's own with that one.

Cons: Drive did well for two weeks or so. Very well in fact. But, started having intermittent freezes and lockups. Was thinking driver issue. Reloaded Win 7 worked for about a few days then had more issues. Reloaded again. issues after a couple of days. Got fed up and took a break from machine for a while. When I went back and fired it up, boot drive not found....uh oh. Called WD and downloaded the disk test. Test could not complete too many bad sectors. WD issued me a RMA# and when I get to go to the Post Office I'll send it in. Hopefully everything will work out.

Overall Review: Not much recent to compare it to because for past two years I've been using a laptop. Built a new Win 7 machine with a Intel 920, GTX260, 6 gb of DDR3, and a Gigabyte board with DDR3, SATA3, and USB3. It's the year of the 3s.
