WD 1TB My Passport Wireless Portable External Hard Drive - WIFI USB 3.0 - WDBK8Z0010BBK-NESN
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I can take this drive on a week long vacation of shooting GoPro videos and dump (15) completely full 64GB SD cards into it without a laptop.
Transfer rate from Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB = 1 hour 15 minutes. That's not bad at all. I have been able to copy every kind of file that you would transfer to a standard HDD.
You can even rename files with the app while in the field.

Cons: It doesn't update the firmware through the app properly. It keep telling me I didn't need an update and I knew it did.
Connected through a Wi-Fi connection and was able to update with the browser.

Other Thoughts: Updating to the latest firmware Version 1.03.13 is a MUST.

SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-I/U3 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 95MB/s (SDSDQXP-064G-G46A)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fastest micro SD card on the market.
Works with GoPro hero4 Black @ 4K with ProTunes on with no problem.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I agree with the other review. this card is a must for the new GoPro 4

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9Q-16GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low profile.
Operates @ 1600mhz

Cons: I have tried to run this memory at 1866mhz on my new Asus X79-Deluxe for over a month. It will operate at that speed, but IS NOT stable at all. Will give errors in memory test, BSOD every now and then and will restart my computer when I try to shut it down.

Other Thoughts: I have another review for this memory, but that was with a differant motherboard. When I installed this onto my new socket 2011 , X79 motherboard I could not get it to operate at the rated speed of 1866mhz. I contacted G.Skill and tried their forum and was told I should have NO PROBLEM with this memory on the X79 platform. I tried a second set of this memory. Tried a new PSU and even swapped out the CPU, all with the same problems. I finally tried a set of G.Skill Ripjaw Z 1866mhz, 16GB (4 x4) and guess what? I just set XMP for the Ripjaw Z and it operates at 1866mhz perfectly. I wish I knew this from the start. It would have saved me hours and hours of headaches.
The ARES would run at 1600mhz just fine but not 1866mhz as advertised.
