Most Favorable Review

Pretty good device

PNY ELITE 480GB USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive (SSD) - (PSD1CS1050-480-FFS)
PNY ELITE 480GB USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive (SSD) - (PSD1CS1050-480-FFS)

Pros: Less expensive alternative to the Samsung T3 drive that I bought in the past. Similar size, clean design and works fine. Better performance than advertised (I saw 450 MB/sec reads and writes with ATTO @ queue depth of 10). No problems after a few weeks. Use it mostly for backups and restores on devices without a second internal drive. Perfect for your tool box.

Cons: Non experienced.

Overall Review: Came formatted as extended FAT but easy to reformat as NTFS. Performance was the same either way. I would buy it again.

Works but slow

TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300 Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/ WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 10 (32 bit & 64 bit)
TP-LINK TL-WN822N Wireless N300 High Gain USB Adapter, 300 Mbps, Dual 3dBi External Antennas, w/ WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, WEP / WPA / WPA2, Plug & Play in Windows 10 (32 bit & 64 bit)

Pros: small, simple to set up, easy to use.

Cons: Slow, only about 25 Mbps in the same room as the router.

Overall Review: OK for the price but there are better units available...

Great RAID controller at a bargain price

HighPoint RocketRAID 3720C 8-port 12Gb/s PCIe 3.0 x8 SAS/SATA RAID Controller
HighPoint RocketRAID 3720C 8-port 12Gb/s PCIe 3.0 x8 SAS/SATA RAID Controller

Pros: Can do multiple levels of RAID or use for just JBODs. Good web interface, easy to understand and use. Fast, 5 disk RAID 5 achieves 600MB/sec reads and writes (locally).

Cons: Doesn't always let me use the BIOS interface?

Overall Review: Very good value for a decent RAID controller. Time will tell if it holds up.

Great value in a center channel speaker

Klipsch RP-440C Reference Premiere Center Channel Speaker With Quad 4" Cerametallic Cone Woofers - Each (Cherry)
Klipsch RP-440C Reference Premiere Center Channel Speaker With Quad 4" Cerametallic Cone Woofers - Each (Cherry)

Pros: Replaced an older Klipsch speaker (two speakers and an aluminum tweeter) with this one and it's a noticeable improvement. The mids are better and the titanium tweeter is smoother.

Cons: It would be nice if it was black like the rest of my speakers but not a big deal.

Overall Review: Yes, I would recommend this for anyone looking for a good center speaker.

Great NAS drive

HGST Ultrastar DC HC320 HUS728T8TALE6L4 8TB 7.2K RPM SATA 6Gb/s 512e 3.5" Hard Drives
HGST Ultrastar DC HC320 HUS728T8TALE6L4 8TB 7.2K RPM SATA 6Gb/s 512e 3.5" Hard Drives

Pros: I've been using 4 of these in my NAS for 3 years and so far flawless. They are fast (for a spinning disk) and robust. Bought another one to expand the NAS. They are historically very reliable as shown in the real storage world of Backblaze.

Cons: Only two minor cons: 1) They are mechanically loud having been tuned for performance in commercial applications and not acoustically for home use. 2) They run warmer than typical home use disks or the newer helium filled drives.

Overall Review: I do recommend this drive highly if a little noise isn't an issue and you have good cooling in whatever enclosure you will use.

Mostly excellent

Malwarebytes Premium 4.5 Latest Version - 5 Devices / 1 Year - Key Card
Malwarebytes Premium 4.5 Latest Version - 5 Devices / 1 Year - Key Card

Pros: Great protection from malware, easy interface and doesn't nag you with popup status all the time. Very fast manual scans of system.

Cons: The only con is that with Malwarebytes premium running it takes longer for apps to open. This is in comparison to Norton 360. Example: MS Excel takes 1-2 seconds to open with Norton but takes 6-8 seconds with Malwarebytes. I believe this is because Malwarebytes is VERY thorough and scans all programs when they load every time. Norton has a "trusted" list that it doesn't scan when they load. Of course it could be differences in program efficiency or a combination of things. Malwarebytes does NOT seem to slow the system down...

Overall Review: I would recommend this product as solid protection and easy to use with the one exception noted above.

Good buying experience

Product as described and arrived on time. When I checked online all five disks were registered with Toshiba and under full warranty with NO issues. Some other vendors are selling drives that are NOT under warranty... Good buying experience and I would recommend this vendor.
