OCZ 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBATV16G

1 out of 5 eggs Broken and invalid lifetime warranty 12/08/2014

This review is from: OCZ 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBATV16G

Pros: Very fast transfer speed prior to breaking.

Cons: Flexible body design makes operation very spotty as other users noted. Despite being in pristine condition the unit doesn't connect to pc 4/5 times i hook it up.

Thankfully there is a lifetime warranty. Except there isn't. OCZ no longer supports the product. I'm really glad to see companies can pick and choose how long a lifetime actually is.

Other Thoughts: OCZ tech and OCZ storage solutions are trash companies. I've had to RMA 4SSD's and a PCIE SSD card this year alone. Purchasing from them is one of the biggest mistakes i've ever made.

ASUS Laptop G74 Series G74SX-XN1 Intel Core i7 2nd Gen 2630QM (2.00 GHz) 12 GB Memory 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M 17.3

Pros: Speed, quality, look, expandability. This is an expensive notebook, yet it embarrasses the alienwares in performance and loadout for the price point. I bought this so i didn't have to lug a full pc around for lan parties, and i have yet to regret it.

Cons: The trackpad while multi touch, still feels a little lacking. I'lll agree with the others who say it is easy to lay your palms down by accident and cause problems. Second hard drive slot is somewhat difficult to expand into.

Other Thoughts: After a very lengthy debate and a cost benefit analysis (having just already spent over a grand on the unit as is) I decided to upgrade the hard drive. While it was 7200rpm i felt if you're gonna go big, you may as well go all the way. In the end i decided to go with an OCZ Vertex 3 90gb ssd, instead of a momentus hybrid drive.

My SSD arrives, i go to install it in bay one and what do i see. THE 500GB OEM DRIVE IS IN FACT A MOMENTUS.

Why is this not advertised anywhere? This is a huge selling point and here i am having just dropped more money that i really didn't have to. I know i'm complaining about something awesome, but the fact this was a surprise is ridiculous!

SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab 10.1 Tablet - Metallic Gray NVIDIA Tegra 2 1.00GHz 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, thin, attractive. Holds a charge forever, feels good in the hand. Brilliant screen.

Cons: Accessories for it stink. The Samsung touchwiz UI update RUINS the unit in my opinion. I had alot of trouble even getting it to update and once I did boy was I sorry. I love the stock honeycomb Tron like UI. The Samsung update makes it look like a children's story book. I had to root mine just so i could roll the firmware back to the stock set.

Samsung proprietary connection is a real drag.

Other Thoughts: After the first week any desire I ever had for an iPad died.
