Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Plastic Case Broken 01/22/2014

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA4000100 Black

Pros: Powers up, shows 3.63 tb available, quiet operation, transfers data

Cons: Caused my 16gb i7 64-bit Win 8.1 Pro system to shutdown when I first plugged the drive into a USB port. The plastic case is separating at the seam near the bottom of the unit on one side right out of the box. There's no way it would have passed quality control had the drive been physically inspected. The data transfer rate is less than stellar but it was a bargain price.

Other Thoughts: I'm returning it. I don't want a unit with a case broken out of the box.

Vantec NexStar CX 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solid case
Drive mount and electronics end cap solid
Worked out of the box

Cons: The connector isn't the micro-usb connector that quality external 2.5" drive enclosures are sporting these day. It's a full size USB 2.0 connector. The proof is the 'what's in the box' photograph. It works but requires a cable with full sized USB connectors on both ends. Deducting a star for that. I didn't want to be carrying another cable with me.

ASUS CUBE with Google TV – Interactive Powerful Media Streamer w/ 50 GB Free ASUS WebStorage, Featuring Voice Search & 2-sided Remote w/Mic. QWERTY Keyboard and Motion Sensors
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Construction and Design
Connector locations.

Cons: Everything mentioned by N/A from the overly sensitive touchpad to the IR Blaster and it just wouldn't work with my Cisco DVR even with different control codes and possible model number alternatives suggested by my cable provider. Setup was not easy and took far too long. I didn't appreciate HBO Go just being a shortcut to the browser. I gave it the week as I really wanted the Cube to work for me. It doesnt.

Other Thoughts: This is the first Asus product I've been disappointed with. That list includes 4 laptops, a netbook, 9 motherboards, and a Nexus 7 tablet. I'm returning it. Newegg accepted the RMA with no issues.
