Review: Seagate 3TB Expansion USB3.0 Portable External Hard Drive

Posted: , By Patcoola

The Seagate 3TB portable expansion drive packs a large amount of storage in a little box. The Seagate expansion is larger than the other ultra portable drives on the market and is the size of the Western Digital SE or My Passport portable drives. The Seagate is fine drive, however, I’d recommend the Western Digital My Passport portable instead.

The Western Digital (WD) has a small activity light on the back by the USB port where the Seagate has a wider light on the top. The WD has a flat surface so you can stack where the Seagate has a smooth spiked surface. The WD has rubber feet on the bottom so it won’t move, the Seagate is completely smooth making it too easy to slip.

The two drives are pretty much the same in terms of specs and performance but in my option the WD is a little bit better overall. The WD is also cheaper than the Seagate, but prices changes all the time (high today, low tomorrow).

ADATA UV100 8GB Red Review

Posted: , By Patcoola

Verdict: Recommend

One of the best looking little Flash drives I’ve used. I got three for installing operating systems, etc. This basic USB 2.0 drive is small, light weight, thin, and stylish. The price is good as well at an online price of $7.98 CAD. The ADATA UV100 is also one of lightest drives I’ve handled. A definite recommend for a basic Flash drive.

Mad Catz R.A.T.3 Mouse Review

Posted: , By Patcoola

The Mad Catz R.A.T.3 is a cool mouse with promising features, but fails to deliver on what’s important. I didn’t want a mouse with a crazy number of buttons, it had to be big and have the basics for gaming. This mouse would have been great if it wasn’t for some serious flaws. I can’t recommend this product unless it’s your personal travel mouse.

Intel i7 6700T Processor Review

Posted: , By Patcoola

Intel’s energy efficient higher end processor reviewed. The Intel Core i7-6700T processor sports a lower clock speed than the i7-6700, slightly less performance, less heat, and almost half the power consumption. The i7-6700T is no push over as an i7, however, I feel the price is almost comparable to the faster i7–6700K with an after market heatsink.

I purchased the i7-6700T for its energy efficiency, and the fact that it is twice the speed of my old AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE. The i7-6700T is exactly what I hoped for, despite the high price tag. The energy saving is already showing. My i7-6700T did not come in a retail box, instead it arrived in a small clear plastic package. It didn’t include anything, such as a warranty paper, Intel case sticker, or heatsink.

My Passport Ultra 1 TB USB 3.0 Secure Portable Drive with Auto Backup

The ultra portable 1 TB external hard drive from Western Digital (WD) is a nice average drive. Although this drive is a bit on the pricey side when compared to other drives; this drive includes a suite of software. Included is the WD backup and data encryption software for both Windows and Mac OS.
