Pros: - Very fast boot-up times.
- Easy installation options (Seagate provided program powered by Acronis to clone your drive)
Cons: - Sensitive to heat
- Noisy when failing!
Other Thoughts: I already owned a backup external HDD, so I just plugged in the adapter for it (which you can just buy separately from a retailer for USB 3.0 or Lightning connections) and run the application to clone your current HDD for easy installation! Same thing as the commercially offered hardware and software, but cheaper and you get to have an external HDD to keep! No waste!
My exhaust port was blocked for an hour when I went downstairs, and I came back to a screen that said "OS NOT FOUND" before it kept making noise when it was apparently hot. Sounded like really noise processor noise. More like nails on a chalkboard annoying...
Thankfully they have a long warranty length!
This review is from: BELKIN BV106050-CW 6 Outlets 900 Joule USB Charging Surge Protector
Pros: - Two top-mounted USB power supplies
- Bolts securely into place on the wall
- Appropriate brightness LED indicators of protected/not-protected
- Charges all my devices despite what other dorks claim. (A dork is someone who is confused by cool stuff, often electronics)
Cons: - Two toned :'(
- Only comes in white!
Other Thoughts: The trick to charging any device is that the display consumes the vast majority of energy. I just close unused applications and the USB power supply is enough to charge my devices while using it! It can charge any of them with the display off overnight easily.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It has a surge protector for the cable to my TV, and cable organizers (that I never used) and are removable if you need extra space for odd shaped plugs.
Cons: It broke pretty quickly, one strip stopped working shortly after I got it. Nothing was damaged from the odd 'malfunction' but it was annoying to deal with... Belkin replaced it under warranty, and quickly!
Other Thoughts: I don't get paid to think...READ FULL REVIEW
