Corsair SP Series, SP120 RGB LED, 120mm High Performance RGB LED Fan (CO-9050061-WW) 3-pack
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Great fan system for advance PCs 02/15/2017

This review is from: Corsair SP Series, SP120 RGB LED, 120mm High Performance RGB LED Fan (CO-9050061-WW) 3-pack

Pros: When opening the box I found everything nicely compact into 4 sub-boxes. The top box had a controller that can support up to 6 fans with a secondary control that let you change the color of the fans, the speed of the lighting effects and the lighting effect type. One the back side of both controllers it has an adhesive so you can secure it inside of your case.

The primary controller is required for the lights on the fans to come on (this is the one that takes up to 6 fan connectors). The secondary controller is not necessary unless you want to change the lighting options.

The fans are ultra-silent and are the same size as most compact water cooling units. This will allow you to replace the water cooling unit fans with these if you want an extra effect.

Overall I really liked the design, if you enjoy having a fancy computer case and build your own PC then this is right up your alley!

Cons: The price seems a bit high.

Other Thoughts: Very silent, the noise ratio is almost non-existent!

Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs Good drive but I thought it would do just a little more 01/31/2017

This review is from: Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ST2000DX002

Pros: The Seagate ST2000DX002 is a very nice drive for what it was designed for. If you can’t afford a decent size SSD then this is the next best thing. I put up this drive against another 7200RPM drive and a 5900RPM drive.

For the testing I used CrystalDiskMark on a Windows 10 x64 system.

Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 2.063 MB/s [ 503.6 IOPS]


What these results tell you is that the ST2000DX002 does very well on sequential reading and writing with performance gains about 10% against other 7200RPM drives. When performing random tests in 3 out of 4 tests it did well enough to compete and in the last tests it beat the other drives extensively.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It does outperform other drives but I am not sure it is worth it for the small markup in price. Honestly thought it would perform about 10% better than what it did.

HP Officejet 250 (CZ992A) Duplex 4800 x 1200 dpi USB / Wireless Color Inkjet Mobile All-In-One Printer
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: The HP 250 Mobile printer has a lot of options in a very small container. It allows you to print from any PC or a mobile device provided you install the HP Service Plugin (Android Devices) or the drivers (PC devices).

Setup is extremely easy, as soon as you turn the printer on, for the first time, it takes you through various menus and you just need to follow the instructions and can be up and running in a matter of minutes.

The device supports 3 main ways to print which are
- WI-FI
- WI-FI Direct
- Bluetooth

I was able to test both WI-FI types and they worked flawlessly. The printing quality was just as good as a high end Inkjet printer (I compared it to my laser printer and it was close).

The device also supports scanning and copying and can store the copies to a USB device that gets plugged into the side of the printer.

When holding the printer, you can feel it is strong and sturdy, however this does not mean it will not break. Even though it does not feel cheap you have to keep in mind it is a printer and if you drop it the odds on something breaking are pretty high. So treat it with care.

The battery charges extremely fast. I believe I had it fully charged in about an hour.

Cons: I could not get the Bluetooth printing to work. I was able to connect to the printer via Bluetooth but I was not able to print.

It is an Inkjet so the cartridges will be expensive overtime and dry out of you are not giving it regular usage.

Only connects to 2.4Ghz WI-FI Networks (does not support 5Ghz).

Other Thoughts: If you need a printer on the go for work that does more than just scanning this is a very reliable/compact option.

Despite not being to use the Bluetooth to print I am sure it is something on my side that I just could not figure out so I still gave it 5 stars. The other items listed in my con section are not major issues.
