Blah, blah, blah.. yeah it’s the news again..
New review by me!
"A few days ago I reviewed a hot-swap cage from iStarUSA that allowed you to simply and easily transfer data to and from standard sized hard drives and I liked it very much. Today for review I have another hot-swap cage from iStar called the BPN-2535DE-SA which allows you to fit two notebook or SSD sized drives into the space of a standard hard drive. The cage is hot-swap capable meaning you can just put the drives in and pull them out as you need to, the cage also locks to secure the drives in place and it’s very simple to install and use.

Another day, another hard drive review but this one is a 2.5” notebook drive, specifically it’s the Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500gb hard drive. I’ve put it up against a couple 3.5” drives as I was curious as to how a notebook drive stacks up against a desktop drive. let’s get into it…
Quote: Hard drives have been around for along time and they’re taken for granted I think. You can get them in varying sizes and speeds and all of them have their uses. Today for review I have the Seagate Barracuda LP 1TB hard drive which is a green drive that runs at 5900RPM and uses lower power than faster drives of similar size. I’m curious by nature so I put this green drive up against a regular 7200RPM drive for comparison, so let’s get to it…
Quote: Keeping with the theme of storage we’ve got going lately I’ve got a hard drive dock from a company called Siig for review today. It doesn’t have any fancy name but it does have a cooling fan built into it, something that I don’t think I’ve ever seen in a hard drive dock. Let’s just get right into it..
"Up for review today I’ve got another USB 3.0 enclosure, this time from Vantec. It’s called the NexStar 3 SuperSpeed External Hard Drive Enclosure and it’s certainly a very nice looking product. Looks aren’t everything though are they, so that’s why this review, to see how it performs. I’ve put it up against a few other enclosures I’ve got on hand, so continue on to see how it does. "
So I had some bad luck the end of last month with an SATA hard drive enclosure I got for review, it fried two of my SATA hard drives… They were extras that I use for backup and for testing things like the HDD enclosure but still that’s 160gigs of space that I lost now.. so yesterday I decided to switch my main system back to my Antec P182 case , the case I was using was just a bit too loud for my tastes and it’s open on the side so a bit of dust was collecting, and in the process I busted the data connection off of one of my 200gig SATA drives, I just got it last month.. So int he last month and a half I’ve basically lost 360gigs of data and storage, thankfully I do backups now all the time, every since my Maxtor hard drive caught fire last year.. I learned my lesson about doing regular backups… I actually backup my backup now!
and I’ve created a Facebook page for DragonSteelMods as well, just did it the other day, but if you are on Facebook, stop by HERE and become a fan!
I have my personal Facebook page HERE, but I haven’t really done much with it… I only joined because I found someone with my last name, which is odd… I thought I and my immediate family were the only ones with that last name… and he thought the same thing as well…
and here’s deal, one of DragonSteelMods sponsors is having a great sale:
Ultra Slim T-Flash (Micro SD) Card Reader for 1 Penny!
original price US$11.99/pc
sales price US$0.01/pc-Can’t beat that deal… but I believe there is a $3 shipping charge, still though it’s a very good deal..
