Seagate 4TB Expansion Portable External Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model STEA4000400 Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - 4TB
- Cheap

Cons: - Its extremely slow, I'm not sure if I have a defective unit or if SMR drives really are just that extremely slow. I did not get any kernel errors other than a few usb resets over the 22h test so I think its just that slow. I used the *nix dc3dd utility from DoD Cyber Crime Center ( and over the entire drive the average sequential write was only 49M/s and read was 98 M/s.

Note that is not the slowest speed, its the overall average!

Other Thoughts: Recommended only for archival use due to how extremely slow it is.

SAPPHIRE FleX Radeon HD 6450 DirectX 11 100322FLEX 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: * Silent
* Runs very cool

Cons: * DOA

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a very old fanless dual dvi card driving two 1920x1200 monitors. As soon as it was installed though video corruption issues began on the DVI-D (black) port. Hopefully RMA for a replacement unit will correct the issue.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Fan 09/24/2009

This review is from: Scythe SY1225SL12M 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan

Pros: Fast and fairly quiet

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Note that if you hook this up directly to your motherboard make certain its RPM is within specs. When I hooked it up to my board it would only spin at 900rpm and wasn't moving much air, there are no options to change voltage on my board so I am not sure why it wasn't running at full speed. I thought it was defective at first until I tried another fan with the same results. I then hooked it up via the 4pin molex and it then spun at 1300rpm and moved a lot more air.
