Seagate Expansion 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great drive when it works (if everything is 4k-native ready)

Cons: Does not work with applications and OSes that don't properly recognize 4k drives

Other Thoughts: Although the internal drive inside this enclosure is a 512e drive (4096-byte sectors with a 512-byte emulation layer), the enclosure itself forces native 4k (4096-byte sectors and NO emulation layer!!!). This means any application or operating system that does not have proper 4k support (again, NATIVE 4k, not 512e) will have problems. This includes:
- various disk cloning programs
- various partition resizing programs
- Microsoft Exchange
- Hyper-V in Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2
- the built-in backup utility in Windows Vista, 7, Server 2008, and Server 2008 R2.

...and no, Microsoft's hotfix will not fix issues with native 4k. It only fixes issues with 512e.

Antec Eleven Hundred Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Great case with some minor cons 04/28/2013

This review is from: Antec Eleven Hundred Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: 1) Lots of room for components, even with an X59, X79, or some other extra large motherboard, as well as those super long video cards
2) Lots of room for cable management behind the right side of the case
3) Lots of room for just about whatever else I can't think of right now.

Cons: 1) Tabs that hold the front 5.25" covers to the front cover snap easily. Be careful!
2) As another reviewer said, the tabs that hold the side fans inside the case can also snap easily.
3) Because it's so dang huge, your power supply cables may not be long enough (particularly the ATX or EPS +12V cable to the motherboard).
4) Lots of fans makes this thing loud.
5) No 3.5" bay or bay conversion plate for things like card readers and whatnot (unlike the old Nine Hundred Two model).

4 out of 5 eggs Does its job, but has a few quirks 09/26/2012

This review is from: COBY DP161PNKKM 1.5" 128x128 Digital Photo Keychain (Pink)

Pros: Does its job--displays pictures on a portable keychain.

Cons: 1) No way to view pictures while charging over USB. Not a huge deal.
2) No way to change settings while charging over USB. Normally wouldn't be a big deal, but...
3) ...has almost NO battery charge out of the package. I would like to at least show someone how to use it without having to wait four hours to charge. -1 egg.
4) Has a 120 picture limit. Yes, it's exactly what it says on the package, but still...most data storage media is limited by capacity, not by number of files. It can be 120 huge bitmaps or 120 tiny jpegs--doesn't matter.
5) Can't manipulate the storage directly. You have to use the utility that shows up in a CDFS-mounted partition to add/remove pics. This is fine for people that don't want to deal with drives/drive letters.
6) Does not come with an AC Adapter. So if it runs out of juice, you need to find a USB port.

Other Thoughts: This was a gift for my mother. I had to buy an AC Adapter with a USB port to charge it, since she doesn't use computers much. Despite all the cons, I only knocked off 1 egg, since none of them are huge dealbreakers. YMMV, though.
