ASUS TF101 Docking Eee Pad Transformer TF101 Mobile Docking

1 out of 5 eggs Very hard to type 05/20/2013

This review is from: ASUS TF101 Docking Eee Pad Transformer TF101 Mobile Docking

Pros: Its a keyboard and trackpad

Cons: When typing, my wrist always hits the track pad. I had to throw this away - just can't use it. No matter how careful I am, my wrist hits the trackpad and the cursor goes somewhere else. Probably just too small for both the pad and keyboard. Giving it one egg - because I have to. 0 eggs would be more appropriate.

Other Thoughts: These things are a fad anyway. Just buy a real laptop. Use your phone for android stuff.

Hitachi GST XL Desk 2TB USB 2.0 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It goes to sleep when not in use. So far, no errors. I transfered files, did a check disk and no problems. (FYI-General HD advice - for anyone buying any hard drive - check for errors first! So many of these large drives ship with errors. Don't just cut and paste, or move....check the disc for errors first, then don't rely on it if it passes. always have a proper backup. I can pretty much promise you that your hard drive will fail after a while.). Back to this drive - those are the pros - the drive hasn't failed and the power savings is a bonus.

Cons: I bought several 2 tb drives from hitachi last year (internal). I think I bought about 7 or 8 total for a home server setup. They were the best drives I have ever used. So, I bought 3 of these without trying any out. I had so much faith in Hitachi from the internal drives, I figured this would just be one of those great internal drives in the case.....NOPE.....this is a different hard drive. I live in a condo, and I am NOT LYING, I CAN HEAR THIS HARD DRIVE ANYWHERE IN THE CONDO IF I AM TRANSFERING FILES. THAT IS HONEST TRUTH. I will not buy anymore of these ever. Even as I type this the only thing I hear is....GRIND, GRIND, GRIND, GRIND.....GRIND, GRIND, GRIND, GRIND....(It pauses after every 7 grinds or so). TORTURE!! Try sleeping with one of these in your room NO SLEEP WITH OWNERSHIP OF ONE OF THESE!

Other Thoughts: Hitatchi was on such a great role, since their introduction of the wonderful hard drives last year. Now, they spit these out. I cannot believe they are SO LOUD! I am just going to use them as offsite backups, because I PERSONALLY CANNOT STAND THE NOISE. Even though the three hard drives I purchased have not failed, I cannot give this anymore stars than one (and I would give 0 stars..oops eggs...if it was possible.). Way too noisy. Noise == no egg.

LIAN LI PC-Q08B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

2 out of 5 eggs Ok case, not the best from Lian Li though 12/24/2010

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-Q08B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: Its a cute little box. Small to tuck in the corner somewhere. If there was a power supply that is 1/16 the size of a normal power supply, this would be a great case.

Cons: First, the case arrived via UPS in its original box. Which I really don't like - picture this: UPS drops off the case when you are gone.....It looks like a brand new computer sitting outside your house! Now thats an invite for a thief! Ok, back to the review. The case box was pretty banged up. The CD/DVD cover was BROKE. Things were shaking around inside. I just emailed Lian Li and told them of the situation and requested a new cd/dvd cover. If they refuse, its going back to its original box. Now to the install. I bought this to serve as a server (home server). I put in a power supply, two HDs and one cd/dvd (leaving the broken part out). It was VERY PAINFUL. There is just NO ROOM! I had to take out the power supply to get to the mainboard. I also had to take out the hard drives (after everything was installed). If this is a "Set it and forget it" board, you will only suffer minor frustration. If you are like me and always swapping/adding/removing parts

Other Thoughts: (Continuted cons) you will have a headache. Also, the case is very flimsy. NOt solid at all. With all the components taking up so much space, I don't see how any airflow can exist. The powersupply just takes up so much room. That said, now everything is installed and it looks nice. It is very small - exactly what I wanted for a server (with a 8 bay raid box sitting next to it). But if LIan LI does not wish to send me the broken part, I will have a smile on my face when I send the case back to newegg. Oh, and the USB front ports - they are exterior ports. They include interior ports, but then the cables are about 2 feet long. Also the screws are very, very small and they don't give you any extras. I also replaced that silly blue fan in the front - that is so 2008.
