Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs FireCuda Gaming SSHD 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Catch 8GB NAND 01/02/2017

This review is from: Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ST1000DX002

Pros: To try this out I saved all of my games to this drive but did not use this as my boot drive. As you frequently open the same game or application again and again I can say that I did notice faster load times. I did not test this but if you were to install you're OS installed on this, you'll certainly see improvement as you continue to reboot as other reviewers have mentioned. I'm giving it 4 stars because it does what it says and isn't a bad value but as you'll see in the cons, I don't think this would be my choice.

Cons: The main problem I have with this SSHD proposition is you are paying about a $30 premium for 8GB of NAND and you get the maximum benefit if you are only playing one game for an extended period. If you put your OS on this, then your boot times will be faster but also eat up some of the 8GB. If this is your situtation, another option would be to buy a 120GB SATA SSD for $40 to $50 and put both your OS and most frequently played game or two on that and then have an HDD for your infrequently used apps.

I would rather do the 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD than the 1TB SSHD.

Other Thoughts: How much of a benefit there is depends on the game and how many games you tend to play at a given time. If you typically will mostly play one game for a while then move on to another game you will see greater benefits than constantly rotating between many games.

Personally, I use a 1TB M.2 SSD.

Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem 12/15/2016

This review is from: Linksys CM3024 DOCSIS 3.0 (24 x 8) Cable Modem

Pros: I haven't had any connection issues with this so that's the main reason I gave it 5 eggs.
Should future proof most people with 24 downstreams and 8 upstreams channels.
Approved by the major ISPs
$100 is a reasonable price and it won't take long to recoup that with the money saved since you are no longer leasing from your ISP.
Simple and well built. I much prefer modems and routers that stand vertically.
The LED's are not super annoying.
Ease or difficulty of setup depends more on your ISP than this product. Sometimes when I swap out modems all I have to do is click through of screens on the TWC website, other times they choose to be difficult and I have to call them.

Cons: Personally, I stand my routers and modems up vertically on a desk but I would like the option to wall mount which this is missing.
This is only a modem so if you don't already have a router, that cost will also have to be factored in. Most ISP modems are now also routers.
It's not big and certainly doesn't have a large footprint but it could be smaller.

Seagate 4TB Game Drive for Xbox One USB 3.0 Model  STEA4000402 - Green
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

4 out of 5 eggs What you see is what you get. 09/17/2016

This review is from: Seagate 4TB Game Drive for Xbox One USB 3.0 Model STEA4000402 - Green

Pros: -Great amount of storage. Without this it was too easy to run out of space with just 500GB and had to . Now I have no concerns
-I didn't notice any difference in load times between this and the internal drive
-Set upt is easy. Plug and play
-No power adapter needed. Just the USB into the xbone gives it all the power it needs
-Price has been dropped from $200 to $150 where it should have been from the start

Cons: -I don't know why they made this drive green. Xbox is black and white now
-While set up is simple, my I had to restart my Xbox twice before it properly recognized the drive

Other Thoughts: Just a rebranded hard drive but missing some features you would get form a normal seagate portable
