SIIG SC-SA0D12-S1 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Pooped out on me 07/06/2010

This review is from: SIIG SC-SA0D12-S1 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA II USB 3.0 Drive Docking with Fan

Pros: Future-proofed with USB 3.0 interface.
Nice fan.
SIIG seems open to RMAs.

Cons: Power supply bit the dust within a month, though SIIG tech rep said the adapters don't fail often.

Other Thoughts: First to market doesn't imply durable. What's so hard about including a reliable power supply? *Sigh.*

SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 1.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Fragile + Poor UI 05/10/2010

This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 1.0" Blue 4GB MP3 Player SDMX18R-004GB-A57

Pros: MicroSD card slot. Plays FLAC and OGG. Sync is solid. Virtually weightless. Sound quality is super (if your earbuds are). Good battery life.

Cons: Two units have failed in a month. The first was DOA from Best Buy. The second, a month into owning it, suddenly started showing snow on the screen when powered on. I had to remove my earbuds when powering on in order to stabilize the display. Inexplicable -- it could have taken damage from being laid under a pillow, but should not have.

The UI is a mess. It takes eight -- count 'em -- eight pushes of a button in order to delete a song. Who thought of this? It also only displays files by tag, not by file name. Finally, as with the iPod, each podcast file is stored in a separate folder, which makes it a pain to actually play podcasts in sequence. Have to manually launch each file. What the hey?

Other Thoughts: I hear rumors that there's a user community to hack the UI, but I couldn't find a homebrew for it.
