Thermaltake AC0023 TriP Travel Series Surge Protector 3 Outlets with dual USB ports 1.5A output for Tablets, Smartphones, and more
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: It is 1.5A max from a single USB port, and 750mA per USB port with 2 devices connected. Those numbers are plastered all over the product packaging. The Newegg product page is incorrect at the moment (shows 2.1A in numerous places). Even Thermaltake's website lists this as 1.5A max.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure it's a fine product if you are okay with a 1.5A output. That isn't enough to quick charge a tablet, and the 750mA x2 isn't enough to quick charge two smartphones concurrently either. Just FYI in case anyone who needed 2.1A output is considering this model.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive

1 out of 5 eggs Absurd design flaw for enclosure = cooked drive 06/22/2013

This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex Desk 3TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive

Pros: Fast drive, nice clean looking enclosure. 2 year warranty is great so you can replace it under RMA after it dies of a self inflicted heat death.

Cons: I have no idea how this product ever made it to market. I can't fathom that Seagate wouldn't have done some basic temperature testing. If you set up SMART monitoring on this drive you'll get regular warnings about the temperature exceeding the max threshold. These drives basically cook themselves to death.

Other Thoughts: The enclosure needs to be completely redesigned for better airflow. There's a fast 7200rpm drive inside which the enclosure can't come close to cooling properly. If you don't monitor the SMART status everything will seem fine for a while. Do yourself a favor and set up monitoring, and run Seatools before your warranty expires.

Baaqii CB084 Micro USB Host OTG Cable w/ USB power for Samsung phone i9100 i9300 i9220 9250
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Cheap
* Works perfectly
* Received quickly considering it was shipped from China

Cons: * None

Other Thoughts: This is a great OTG y-cable. It works perfectly for powered USB OTG with my Nexus 7 (e.g. watching movies off a usb thumb drive or external USB 2.5" hdd while simultaneously charging your device). Even though it was shipped from China I received the cable quickly.
