Revive An Old PC or Laptop With The Transcend Information 256 GB SATA III SSD370

May 3, 2015

Recently, I had an older Windows 7 based Toshiba Laptop given to me in exchange for removing the personal data off of the drive. The laptop was suffering some other issues, as well;  that I was able to fix. The laptop is approximately 5 years old and came at a time when I was giving my brother a another computer I had, to install in his man-cave (garage)… The Toshiba became my own man-cave (garage) computer, after upgrading the computer with a Solid State Drive.

To breathe new life into this laptop I installed the Transcend Information 256 GB SATA III 6 Gb/s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive. For the money, it was a no-brainer. The difference this upgrade made was very noticeable (faster boot time, faster program loads, and a faster internet experience).

A nice thing about the SSD370, is that it includes a 3.5-inch mounting kit, consisting of a bay adapter and 8 mounting screws (in the event you decide to install this drive in a desktop computer). Once attached to the chassis, you can use the 2.5-inch SSD370 in the standard 3.5-inch space.

A Bluetooth Speaker For Under $30 That Has Me Sold

March 24, 2015

To compliment my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Tablet, I went on the hunt for a bluetooth speaker. Never having owned a bluetooth speaker, I soon found that there are so many different models and types of these speakers to the point that you can easily get lost in the hunt.

What I was looking for was something that was reasonable in size, sounds good, and is under $50.  If you are not familiar with these little speakers, they are primarily used to wirelessly connect (via bluetooth technology) your smartphone or tablet so that you can listen to music, podcasts, videos, etc… It actually adds a whole other dimension to your handheld devices.

After researching bluetooth speakers at various sites on the internet, I ended up at Amazon where I could make cost and feature comparisons and get a good feel of where a particular speaker stood based on the customer reviews (which is a strong point at Amazon).

What I found was a bluetooth speaker called the DKnight Magicbox (for under $30), that in my opinion, deserves a 5 star rating. As a matter of fact if you look at the customer reviews on this speaker you will find that the DKnight Magicbox has had over 5500 customer reviews and is carrying a near 5 star rating.

DKnight Magicbox

Straight out of the box I was able to seamlessly connect my tablet to the speaker. The first time I heard the sound, coming from such a small footprint, I was totally amazed. Yes, you can spend a lot of money for a bluetooth speaker, but I am telling you don’t do it.  Give the DKnight Magicbox a try before you do.

Here is what I liked about this speaker:

  • It just plain looks nice (with a rubber top and rubber bottom)…
  • There is an “on and off” switch on the side of the unit and controls on the top of the unit (for volume, to move forward/backward in your music que, to pause and to answer your phone)…
  • When charging, a red led light is displayed.  When the speaker is fully charged the light will go out.
  • There is a micro SD card slot on the unit.  Load your MP3’s on the SD card and speaker will play them…
  • It has two highly powerful 40mml total 6W acoustic drivers that produces a wide spectrum of audio…
  • It is less than $30…
