This review is from: SanDisk SD8SN8U-512G-1122 X400 M.2 2280 512GB Internal SSD
Pros: unknown. TLC so i guess its probably lower cost. I ended up going with a MLC but that wasn't the real reason for review.
Cons: this product is sold by random third party sellers. Which seller gets your order seems random, I've seen this go through a couple sellers. When they decide to process the order seems random, certainly not same day or even next day processing. Didn't wait long enough to see how long it would take them to actually ship it.
Other Thoughts: Canceled the order and got a product Will-Call directly from Newegg.
Amazing that Newegg can process an order, package it, and flag it as ready for pick up... all before this seller even verified the order.
I will begin leaving poor reviews on sellers who provide poor service, i know it isn't a reflection of the item, but newegg is going down hill very quickly with these market place sellers.
This review is from: eFun Touch 8 XN800 Black USB 2.0 IR Wireless Touch Pen
Pros: Could be used as a signature device.
Might be fun for children.
I felt like it was about as accurate as i expected.
It didn't seem to cause any harm to the screen given its soft brush tip.
Cons: The soft brush tip is probably the limiting factor in its accuracy.
The manual was a very poor translation.
The product came very cheaply packaged given its retail price. The box's descriptions were very... lackluster and poorly worded. If i saw this on the shelf i would not buy it, period.
The device itself is marketed as light, this is true... but it feels... cheap.
Windows 8 is designed for multiple point touch.
You can not zoom, rotate, or make complex selections.
It is difficult to use the various swipes, scrolls, and drags.
This isn't recognized as an actual pen device in windows, it uses its own calibration software that you will need to instal on each computer.
Other Thoughts: I will probably be giving this to a neighbor of mine so he can use it for clients' signatures, for which it does work.
Maybe it could be calibrated to work on say a clipboard instead of the actual laptop screen.
My biggest problem is the price tag on this thing.
It just isn't up to par, it should be aluminum at this price range.
Pros: Very low price per GB
189 isn't that bad considering it is 3726 GB formatted, with tax a little more than a nickle per GB.
For some reason i was expecting the larger disc to be a bit slower, but tested faster than the 1TB Hitachi in my server, as well as the 500 GB WD Blue in my main pc.
Clocking in at 130 MB/Sec using ATTO.
Mine doesn't make any real noise at all.
I mean it is the same size as any other 3.5", but c'mon, that's a lot of storage, pretty amazing.
Cons: None really.
Too much storage? Naw..
I will be using this as a backup of the laptop, the main rig, and the current file server... with room to spare.
Storage is kind of boring, this is actually about as exciting as it gets outside of SSDs. Maybe Seagate could put some color on the sticker next time?
4000GB could have been like embossed on the rear of the drive, that would cool.
Other Thoughts: Compatibility
I had no problems with getting the drive going, just installed it into the backplane of my:
Then using Computer Management in
I found that it was recognized by my motherboard
and proceeded to format it for testing.
The disc size was correct, no drivers needed.
