Seagate BarraCuda Pro ST6000DM004 6TB 7200 RPM 256MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Bought two Seagate BarraCuda Pro ST6000DM004 6TB HDD 256 Cache to replace two Seagate BarraCuda 2TB HDD 64MB Cache. transferred over 1.6TB of data to each 6TB HDD from the 2TB HDD using Win10 which had no issues. Temps never went up during transfer. Both 6TB drives are very quiet, run temps at 32c {top} 34c {bottom} showing in Good Health in CrystalDisk Info. Weight felt identical to the 2TB previously installed. My primary "C" drive is a SSD, but I load most apps, games on the HDD's.

Crystal Disk Mark show both drives nearly identical in speed 'Seq' & 4K
Top 6TB drive Read 225.1 Write 222.9 --- 4K Read 3.091 Write 2.963
Bottom 6TB drive Read 229.5 Write 225.0 --- 4K Read 3.088 Write 2.587

My apps, games are starting up much faster.
My previous 2TB HDD tested Read 118.4 Write 113.7 and the other Read 159.2 Write 155.4 with temps 30c

Cons: None so far, only had them for a day

Other Thoughts: Corsair 500R Case, H110 Hydro, 1200AX PSU, Asus Maximus Hero VI MB, Intel 4770K CPU, Gigabyte GPU GV-N98TWF3OC-6GD, G-Skill Trident 2400MHz 32GB, Crucial M500 960GB SSD, Seagate 6TB HDD x2, Creative SBZ to Denon AVR-4311ci - Infinity Primus 5.1 w/Klipsch Sub XW-300d, HP ZR30w 30" S-IPS LCD, W10 64bit


5 out of 5 eggs Great sound and comfortable 06/04/2016

This review is from: Yamaha EPH-C300 In-Ear Headphones, Black

Pros: 3 sizes of easy to remove/apply ear fittings. Excellent volume, in fact, the loudest earphones I've ever heard. You should not need an amp for phones, ipods, tablets and laptops.

Great clarity, soundstage and depth for earphones tested on a laptop onboard connection and classic iPod 4th gen. I listen to mostly Hard Rock, Pop and Techno and never felt I needed more base and the base I heard was adequate and not muddied. Mid-range and Highs were not distorted or distant and just where I wanted them for earphones.

Comes with a cushion storage piece that can easily settle in one's pocket, purse, drawer, etc for keeping the cords tangle free.

Cons: I prefer cords braided and would buy a braided version if Yamaha made one. The cord is fairly anti-tangle free on this version and the price is right.

Other Thoughts: The odd length is definitely designed to put the other cord around the back of your neck. This is great for athletes, walkers and general commuting situations.

This review is from: Yamaha EPH-C300 In-Ear Headphones, White

Pros: For laptops, tablets, phones, ipods etc. These earphones offer clarity, precision and mostly volume without distortion. Extraordinary nice for movies, youtube etc for the earphone limitations.

It come with a cheap but packaged storage foam to store when traveling or not in use. Three size ear cups (easily exchanged) to experiment with for comfort included.

Noise Cancelling is top notch. Those hearing the ting sounds from full volume by my friends was like a TV at the lowest volume when you can not make out verbiage sounds.

Cons: Necklace is not tangle free nor braided (but adequate).

There is a different measurement from left to right ear wires that may confuse/upset some. I personally think this is useful for those wanting to physically exercise (can wrapped to one's backside of the neck tucked), but some don't like it

Other Thoughts: I compared direct source volume levels with JBL, Altec Lansing, Klipsch 4si earphones as well as ATH-M50 over the hear headphones for direct input to various devices. The Yamaha EPH-C300 In-Ear Headphones won hands down on volume levels. If you're looking for clarity and volume from various non amp sources like laptops, tablets, phones, ipods, etc . . . this set is worth your gander.
