Winner of Our 'Cracking the Egg' USB 3.0 Contest

Last month we opened up a contest with Newegg called "Cracking the Egg" where one lucky winner took home the following haul of USB 3.0 prizes:

1.     One Asus N61JQ-X1 Notebook Computer with an Intel Core i7 Mobile Processor and 4GB of Memory

2.     One Western Digital 1TB MyBook 3.0 External Disk Drive

3.     One Seagate BlackArmor PS-110 500 GB External Drive

We received nearly 5,500 entries, with around 4,500 of those meeting the requirements with correctly answered questions correctly only one entry, as per the rules.

Today we're happy to announce the lucky winner, Todd Eckelberger from Lakeland, Florida. Congratulations!

Stay tuned for another contest from Tom's Hardware and Newegg.
