Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (Rev 2.0) Motherboard Review - Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (Rev 2.0) Motherboard Review
Tue, September 28 2010 | 5:41PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Many of Gigabyte's initially released X58 motherboards have gone through several transitions over the last two years to accommodate new features and to provide better performance. The most notable change came in the form of USB3.0 and SATA 6.0Gbps support. When first released, the UD3R moniker represented the company's budget alternative to those wanting to jump onto the X58 bandwagon. The problem was the 4 memory slot design often discouraged people from buying it for future expansion purposes. In response, Gigabyte have streamlined their budget segment and with the addition of the latest features, created the GA-X58A-UD3R where the second 'A' denotes USB3.0 and SATA 6.0Gbps compliance. On a similar note, the 'UD' abbreviation represents their Ultra Durable design throughout their product line up. Furthermore, they have revised the board with a much better VRM circuitry with 12 phase PWM design on the CPU for superior overclocking. Other than that, we can expect to see many of Gigabyte's innovative features such as the 2 oz copper PCB, extra USB power, 3-way graphics card support and a rich application suite to manage the motherboard from a user friendly windows environment. In essence, it has the making of a high end motherboard with a few cost cutting compromises to appeal to a budget minded audience."

"The SUNBEAMTECH Airbox USB3.0 3.5" External Enclosure performs head and shoulders over the previous generation of USB2 enclosures! I suppose that is to be expected since USB3.0 offers ten times the bandwidth of USB2. USB2 was limited to 480Mb/s and USB3.0 offers a massive 5Gb/s, so the performance gains we saw here today are nothing short of expected. I will admit though, knowing the speed that USB3.0 offers I was still pleasantly surprised. I was surprised as to how well the SUNBEAMTECH Airbox USB3.0 3.5" External Enclosure performed when compared to the same drive being attached via the SATA port on the test system..."
