ioSafe SOLO G3 2TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fireproof, waterproof, plug and play, no special drivers, works just like any other external drive. Read write speed just as fast as a desktop sized external drive. Sturdy construction, heavy, and professional looking. Packaging was easy and sensible, didn't have a ridiculous amount of funky cardboard pieces.

Cons: Doesn't make waffles.

Other Thoughts: Registered the product on IOSafe's website with no issues to activate the 1year data recovery plan.

Arrived in perfect condition, boxing and packaging did it's job to protect the unit.

Have not yet had to contact customer support, but from the smoothness of registering the product on their website, I imagine their support would be just as good.

Pros: Still working flawlessly after 8 months of use. Purchased in December of 2012, and it's still working great today! Has a slot for an mSATA drive, as well as a 2.5" laptop drive. Note* requires a slim 7mm drive, not the standard 9.5mm notebook drive. Still, VERY COOL that such a small laptop will support using 2 hard drives (1xmSATA and 1x2.5" notebook drive)

Cons: Trackpad is not the best quality, works well enough but is sometimes unpredictable. Keyboard keys are not very sensitive and sometimes miss letters as I tpe thm.

WiFi chip connects at a maximum of 150Mbps. I bought an intel WiFi chip to upgrade it to support 300Mbps connection speed and got a BIOS error message saying "Incompatible wireless card installed". Apparently the BIOS won't recognize any wifi chip except the model that came with this laptop.

Other Thoughts: Some people say it's great for light gaming. I disagree. Even on lowest settings it struggles to play most games. Sanctum and Left 4 Dead 2 are the only games I attempted to run, and it was sad. The only game I play on this laptop now is Age of Empires II HD. Very basic games will run fine.

Pros: Battery powered, easy to use, doesn't distort at high volumes, plenty loud. Sound quality is as good as can be expected for the price (20 bucks). Good for listening to background music or anything not requiring very high quality sound. Better than just about all laptop speakers.

Cons: Side firing speakers don't point the audio towards the listener, making the high frequency sounds hard to hear especially if listening to vocal/spoken word. I kept turning the speaker to one side so at least one speaker was facing me so I could hear what people were saying.

Other Thoughts: I know it's a cheap speaker and I can't expect much... but I was really expecting a little more bass out of these. The tiny little speakers that came with the G4 iMac in 2004 had better bass and overall sound quality than this.
