SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: My previous review needs to be partially corrected. I maintain that the drive is fast and I love that aspect of it. Now jump down to the cons.

Cons: The usb enclosure is a piece of junk. After about 4 months I've had issues with the drive staying connected. I have to keep something under the adapter cable where it plugs into the drive to keep the tail end of it elevated or the drive stop being detected, you lose whatever it was you were doing, and you have to unplug the drive for a few seconds & plug it back in to be detected again. It's absolutely shameful that you get a year warranty on the internal hard drive but only 90 days on the enclosure cable, which I found out the hard way after trying to submit a RMA. DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE if you are needing a RELIABLE source of storage. I'm currently trying to find a replacement usb 3.0 enclosure to move the internal hard drive to so I can reliably access the data without having to rig it up just to keep using it. Lesson learned - don't buy external drives unless it's from the hard drive manufacturer - Samsung isn't going to take care of their portion of the device it is quite clear. What good is western digital fixing the internal hard drive if the bloody usb controller that is built into the enclosure fails so that you can't access the drive???

SAMSUNG 500GB P3 Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STSHX-MT050DF
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great little drive! It's pretty quiet for an external 5400 rpm drive! I'm getting close to 52MB speeds on my USB 2.0 port. I wish I had USB 3 to really make use of it!

Cons: The cable is short - we're talking stupid short.

Other Thoughts: Don't use the included "Portable Secret" program that came with it. Use something like TrueCrypt Portable edition (freeware) to encrypt your things if you really need to have anything encrypted. According to many sources on Google the encryption program that comes with the drive uses hardware on the controller for the enclosure - so if you ever have to pull the drive out of the enclosure you are basically not going to be able to decrypt your data - if the sources on Google are correct.

PSVITA playstation Call of Duty Black OPS Declassified
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs so much potential... 12/18/2012

This review is from: PSVITA playstation Call of Duty Black OPS Declassified

Pros: Multiplayer is fun.

Cons: Multiplayer has connectivity issues - often times kicked out to the title screen the going back into multiplayer right after a kick gives you the music for the game as well as the background image & the game has to be closed & opened again.

In single player the AI is...well there's not any. I've seen them so many times crouched behind a barrier and shooting the barrier rather than shooting over it. The story feels like it was just pieced together. Check out the review on IGN for the game & just read THE VERDICT at the bottom of the review.

Other Thoughts: The only reason you would want this is for handheld mulsiplayer COD experience. Hopefully they'll iron out the bugs in the future...
