Western Digital RE4-GP WD2003FYPS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: very low cost per TB

Cons: my read speeds are consistently 2/3 of write.

Other Thoughts: I had no idea that WDC made GreenPower RE4 drives. I probably would have passed if I had known.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: galactic space
low variability in read/write perf (no hangs or stutters)

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: This drive has been rock solid, I am only using 300G out of 1T but have probably over written the drive about 10T (I do a lot of ETL development). Not having to worry about what stays and what goes make work so much easier. I have 7 VMs I use on a weekly basis which almost impossible with my 240GB drive, I had to shuffle data around which was pain. I just wish I could have TWO them in my laptop at the same time.

System is a MBP 15 2011 with 16GB running 10.8.5


Rosewill RIKB-11002 Slim Keyboard with Low Profile Chiclet Keycap Design - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: quiet, responsive, consistent pressure, low amount of key travel, light touch, space bar doesn't pivot (can hit it anywhere along the length).

Cons: home key block is rotated 90 degrees, this is lame and one of the only downsides.

Other Thoughts: I am programmer and pretty picky typist. I code about 100-300 lines a day and type about 50-80 words per minute. This keyboard is pretty damm good. Not just for the price, but for anything. It could be a little bit more compact, but I can't really fault it for that.

My previous keyboard, which I cry over still wast the BTC-9000, best ultra-slim keyboard ever made.

If you like the feel of the apple keyboard but want slightly more key travel and less pressure, this is the keyboard for you.
