I'm up for both - with related use stories.

DRIVE: I want to upgrade the drive in my PS4.  With new content going digital, I'd like to measure / benchmark speed increase and noise reduction for games stored on the device itself.  Also, the base 500GB drive is just not quite enough, so an upgrade in capacity would be useful.
POWERBANK: First world problems I know, but with the PS4 came its controller and a wireless headset.  Both of these need regular feeding, often at times when I need them most.  Having a device I can use that's small / portable to charge them as they're being used would let me play longer - and truly develop those epic cases of OOS.

I'd love the SSD, but given that I think my iPhone5 battery is cr*pping out, the powerbank would not go astray either.

Frequent power outages (rarely, but sometimes 24hr+), so the power bank would be great for charging stuff like phones/MiFi/tablets etc used to get info during the outages.

I'm in - winning either would be great.

SSD would replace a dying hard drive in my laptop.

Powerbank would be useful for keeping my Note II up and running when I'm called away with work.

The SSD would make my laptop fly and i could external the current 5400rpm hdd, and I'd just LOVE the powerbank to make my #Ingress adventures last a LOT longer than my iPhone likes currently! :)

Yes please!

SSD: I would install in my laptop to give a much needed speed boost!

Power bank: This would live in my new car as the cigarette lighter doesnt work!  It would be very useful when out and about to ensure I never run out of juice!

I would love a solid state drive for my home laptop - our work laptops have them and they are so much quicker! 

And the power bank would be great - I have iphones, an ipad and a Nexus 7 which all seem to need charging at the most inopportune times. I currently have an Anker charger which is great, but I love the metallic finish on the ADATA!

SSD Upgrade to PC. And OS from Vista to Win8.
Powerpack extra power for GPS tracker and/or Phone when I'm next on the Abel Tasman track. (February I think).
Will also be interesting if my portable 5v solar panels will recharge the power pack and how long.

Wow, how cool are these products. Two that I need as well lol.

The SSD would be amazing for my constantly failing hd on laptop (weekly blue screen error).

The Powerbank would give my phone a fighting chance of lasting more than half a day. The Xperia Sola has a capacity of just 1320mah, means I cant be too far away from a power point. 
The best use of the Powerbank would be able to go camping, make calls, texts, and play music etc for more than a few hours would be fantastic.

Thanks for the entry

Oh! I'd love an entry please.

SSD for my brother's ageing iMac so he can edit and produce video faster. Power bank for me to carry and charge up my thirsty iPhone's battery.

I'd be willing to write good reviews too!
