Panasonic LUMIX TS25 DMC-TS25R Red 16.1 MP 2.7
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great size for a pocket, easy to carry around, a great supplement to a SLR. The upgrade from telescoping rings means fewer moving parts, and the sealed camera greatly reduces dirt and wear.

Cons: none really for 99% of the world. some prosumers / pros may comment about spherical abrasions with the lens while at max zoom, but such people would surely over a thousand dollars in SLR gear.

Other Thoughts: I owned the TS-10 before this and it too is great, both are working great and going strong.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: good price to TB ratio (45$/TB at the time), and historically I favor Seagate over others.

Cons: One of the two I ordered was DoA, as was the grade-A (new, not refurb) replacement drive. After this experience I'm going to return the 2nd drive (again) and go with something else. I base my loyalty to Seagate on the stability of the one working drive in the future.

Other Thoughts: I bought two drives for a mirror. While my Nvidia NForce 980 does support 3TB HDDs, the raid controller (MediaSheild) does not and so truncates the mirror to 2TB. I'll use robocopy/rsync to manually mirror (backup) my data as this too has its advantages.

SAMSUNG S2 640GB USB 2.0 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs 640GB vs. 600 GB 02/08/2010

This review is from: SAMSUNG S2 640GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive HX-MU064DA/G22

Pros: Low ratings due to this drive's failure to meet its 640GB capacity are bogus. Drive capacity has always been in 1024k blocks.
640 GB = 640,000,000,000 B
640,000,000,000 B / 1024 = 625,000,000 KB
625,000,000 KB / 1024 = 610351.6 MB
610351.6 MB / 1025 = 596 GB
Thus the drive's capacity after being formatted by windows/linux will be 596 GB. Every drive does this, its an industry standard. Those that give any drive a low rating due to this should not advertise themselves as a 'High' tech rating.

Cons: People with low tech skill advertise themselves as 'high'.
