Intel 330 Series Maple Crest 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Purchased 11/5/2012 now 11/14/2016. Still my os drive. Still fast.

Cons: Sometimes I like having excuses to buy new hardware. This ssd has refused to give me an excuse to replace it.

Other Thoughts: Who know's if anyone will read this review on a drive that isn't sold anymore but oh well. Just like the last review, I've had this ssd for 4 years and its showing no signs of stopping. I recall back when I bought this , one of my colleagues was surprised that I went with Intel at the time because apparently other brands were popular at the time and were boasting better i/o speeds. I simply said that I felt confident that an Intel product would last me a while. Skip ahead 4 years and I'm still using the same ssd while one of his has already started to fail. Fluke? Maybe so but this Intel ssd has has worked for me long enough that when/if it does die or I want to upgrade it, i'll likely be going with another Intel.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Purchased on 3/3/2011 died earlier this year in 2016. Not too shabby really and it died without causing too much trouble.

Cons: Things only last so long.

Other Thoughts: So close to 6 years of service but couldn't quite make it. This was my main storage drive and where i stored most of my game installations so it was used quite heavily.

I started to notice for a while some hang-ups in explorer when viewing image thumbnails in large folders and when I was playing games that loaded data off the fly, sometimes they would stutter and hang at times. Got into event viewer and found tons of i/o system conflicts with the drive. Drive continued working long enough to backup almost everything I needed with only a handful of corrupted files that I could not recover. I guess this isn't so much a review than it is reminiscing since its likely this drive isn't available anymore anyway. If you still have this drive and it works, good for you!

Toshiba 40
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs We've had this close to 7 years now... 11/13/2016

This review is from: Toshiba 40" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV 40RV525R

Pros: Its been almost 7 years and this tv is still going strong.

Cons: It's showing its age now as it has hdmi handshake issues with the ps4 requiring the set to be turned off and on sometimes in order for the ps4 to see it. Ps4 works normally on newer tvs.

Other Thoughts: Getting close to 2017 so we've almost had this tv 7 years now. Still turns on and still has a great image. I'd say it still looks better than a lot of newer 1080p tvs with led backlights. Unfortunately when we bought a ps4, we noticed the tv would not detect the signal from the ps4 quite frequently and would require either resetting the ps4 or turning the tv on and off. The ps4 works fine with newer tvs but just not this one. From what i can piece together from the internet, it might be an outdated hdmi hdcp handshake issue from the tv itself. Not really a surprise there considering the age of the tv.
