SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5

4 out of 5 eggs Good Price, Solid ext USB 3 drive... 09/16/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive STSHX-D401TDB Black

Pros: So far so good, holds data, getting decent USB 3.0 transfer rates, this was on sale and so the price was great and it doesn't seem to be a heater (good air flow).

Cons: This is a Seagate manufactured drive with a Sammy Logo... Not sure 2-3 years down the road if there's a problem how that will play out warranty wise.

-supplied USB 3.0 Cord is too short (an annoyance) for those of us needing more than 18"

-1 egg for the Samsung software - it's buggy. I'm considering scrapping the included software and using other solutions (for encryption and backing up).

5 out of 5 eggs Does what it's supposed to do 09/16/2014

This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 4-port PCI-Express x1 Controller Card, VLI VL80x Chip Model SD-PEX20133

Pros: Good construction. The card has 4 USB 3.0 ports that seem to work!

Cons: None come to mind

TOSHIBA Thrive AT105-T1032 Tablet NVIDIA Tegra 2 1.00GHz 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: From looking at specs, this tab was the best deal compared against the Xoom, Sony's new thing and the Galaxy 10" tab. It's got full size USB, HDMI out etc... you can read on.. the tab is well designed and fast but a little quirky... there's a loose piece of plastic you need to remove to dock it (I can see losing this in a month) but it's minor (to me).

Cons: Volume rocker is counter intuitive (to me). I keep trying to turn it up (and it goes down) and vice versa so - I need to reprogram myself. Like any tab, USB connectivity to external devices is limited... I can connect to a thumb drive, or a exFAT 500GB drive, but not a DVD burner (for example).

Other Thoughts: It comes with some good pre-installed apps but... has some crapware too... which, cannot be removed which is a shame. All in all, I am pleased and would buy another one for the wife if she wanted one...
