Pros: Perfect All in One Printer for Home, Home/Office or Office. Print, Fax and Scan, with a paper feeder for multi sheets, even Dual Sided Printing.
Paper tray holds 225 sheets, output tray holds 60. The overall size makes this easy to find a place and use it. The Color LCD screen is easy to use and make optional choices. Fax is settable to work with an answering machine. USB 2.0, Wireless or LAN with a memory of up to 1GB, which is a lot when scanning multi pages for Fax, Copy or Print.
HP Instant Ink offers plans starting at $2.99 a month for 50 Pages a Month, up to $9.99 a Month for 300 Pages, with unused roll over (up to your plan limit). Connected by LAN, HP knows when to send your needed inks with a return envelope. A real money saver over a year, the page count is per page, not what you printed. Documents to Quality Photos, the plan is per page.
Other Thoughts: This is a great investment for a Printer that does it all. Beautiful Quality Photos and Documents, with easy feed for different papers and types. In putting this thru the paces I printed Beautiful Pictures, Double sided copy and print, 20 dual sided sheets with color and this was blazing fast. Any project goes quickly. With HP ePrint you can print on the go., easy mobile printing.
The Touch Screen is color and easy to use and understand. Quickly you’ll be able to set for dual sided to envelopes. I was already an HP Instant Ink user and know that my around $200 average a year in Ink is now $4.99 a month ($60 a year) and we have no fear of printing. The roll over makes it even a better value.
Between HP 1year warranty and available extended warranties this is a good choice for an All in One printer. Even if you rarely use the Fax feature it’s still a perfect Home/Office Printer. Changing out paper is easy and the opening front edge of the paper tray allows for longer paper. I’ve read a lot of good reviews and this deserves a yes to buy. I can’t see this as a return after trying it, you’ll love it. I do, it’s the perfect fit for my busy home office, yours too.
This review is from: Seagate BarraCuda ST3000DM008 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: This is a perfect HDD for any of your needs. Gaming, Video, Music, Photos and more.
Seagate BarraCuda 3TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5” Hard Drive. 3TB of storage for a great value.
6Gb/s Interface Optimizes Burst Performance; 64MB Cache
Instant Secure Erase for Safe Drive Retirement.
Other Thoughts: When it comes to HDD speed for fast performance this drive did not disappoint. For a better review, I removed an SSD and restored for a clean Windows 10. Loaded it up with all my files, music, games, videos, everything. Using my PC over a few weeks, I found very little that would stop me from using this over my SSD. If you load up your SSD too much it slows down, this keeps flying along loaded up. Yes, a slower start time, but no noticeable difference doing everyday things and no disappointment gaming, my FPS was the same.
This is a great choice for a main drive, secondary drive, external (boxed) and security system drive. The drive is quiet and runs on the cool side.
This is a bare drive, meaning HDD only. No power or SATA cable supplied. For most installers, this will not be a problem. SATA and jumper power cables are inexpensive. This is a recommend to buy drive.
Pros: If you’re looking for a 3.5” drive for any build this is up to 5 times faster than an HDD. Great for a Gaming PC, Video editing, drive with its faster retrieval speeds, quiet running and lower drive temperatures. If your building a Home PC, the speeds it offers will make your opening of files faster and multitasking flow smooth.
Deciding on an SSD for it’s faster speeds (and limitations that can slow it down), or a HDD running at 7200rpm the 8GB SSD in combo with the 1TB HDD making an SSHD gives a cross between both types. You don’t have to pay the higher dollars of an SSD or sacrifice storage size.
Seagate’s 5-year warranty and support make this an easy choice.
Cons: I’ve read of comparisons to buying a separate SSD of bigger GB and an HDD will be better than an SSHD and in some points, it’s correct. But, this is an SSHD and it offers the simplicity of a single drive slightly higher in price than an HDD, less than an SSD. I’m not sure it’s fair to say that, as an SSHD I see no Cons.
Other Thoughts: Right from the start you can see the fast load times, from the fast install of Windows 10 Pro, to how programs run off it. I agree with other reviews that this drive is also a great option for HTPC or high Video needs. Being a combo drive the 8GB SSD will get faster and faster at recovering the programs you use often.
This is more than an up the middle selection, it’s a hard to pass up option as compared to an SSD. In reviewing this I pulled SSD’s and installed this FireCuda Gaming SSHD. Everything I needed to install to be done and ready to use was like my SSD’s in under 2 hours (HHD days it was double that). I was looking for slower FPS playing games or slower multi-monitor, multi-tasking use than my SSD and I don’t notice any difference. My games play just a well as before, I would/will use this for my PC. Installing and reviewing, I plan to continue to use it not remove it and reinstall my takeout’s.
I have been using Seagate products over the years of building and upgrading PC’s and HTPC’s. Seagate has a lot of experience manufacturing storage products; I personally have never had a problem with their products. Reviews are good for a reason, people like it. In the price range, it’s a great choice for your upgrade or build.
