Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5

3 out of 5 eggs Not fast for connection to desktop 06/28/2014

This review is from: Seagate Expansion 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STBV4000100

Pros: Large capacity, not very expensive.

Cons: Slow for USB 3.0. Will not power down when your desktop is turned off, the platters continue to spin until you unplug its power cable.

Other Thoughts: If you only have USB 2.0 ports then do not worry. The transfer rate for this device will not be improved by using 3.0 ports instead of 2.0. I get about 120 MB/s on 3.0. I imagine that it's the hard disk hardware inside the device that is creating the bottleneck.

If you really want to take advantage of a USB 3.0 connection for an external storage device, I'd say go with an external SSD. The vast majority of HDDs cannot write at speeds above USB 2.0 transfer rates so a USB 3.0 connection is wasted on them.

4 out of 5 eggs Better than XP, but only just. 07/07/2010

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders

Pros: Better than XP as far as stability for newer games, and unlike XP it's not losing update support this year. +1 for that.

Comes with MahJong so +1 just for that.

Cons: Many of the new features are thankfully optional. Only what was carried over from XP seems important.

The new MS Solitaire is not as nice, -1 for that.

Other Thoughts: If XP wasn't getting dropped from Microsoft Support soon, I would not have upgraded yet. But having made the change I'm happy I went through it.

It didn't frustrate me in any way, and didn't give me any real problems, so rating started off at three stars. Realistically it won't actually revolutionize your personal computing experience, so again from me not getting that fifth star.

Pros: Quiet and powerful. Far quieter than I expected, as well as much more powerful than the unit it replaced (250W).

Cons: Nothing worth mentioning.

Other Thoughts: It's not going to revolutionize your computing experience, so it's not getting five stars, but it will serve you well if you need it and it was far better than I expected and I got a great deal on it ($99) so I'll give it four stars.

Personally I didn't need 700W and am still nowhere near using it all, but I might need it in the future so this unit will last me for years easily.
