Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Plus 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVS64GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Customer Service 12/13/2013

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Plus 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVS64GB

Pros: Haven't had a chance to test out the new drive, but it is nice a slim, so you can use adjacent ports and has a metal housing.

Also, I broke my first one and Mushkin sent another one for free, despite me admitting that the product was damaged due to my own negligence/cat. Their customer service is top notch. I've never experienced this with any electronics manufacturer before.

Cons: Not a capless design, but obviously I knew that when I bought it. It should include some type of lanyard or key ring. I love my patriot supersonic rage for being retractable, but its so bulky that it blocks the ports next to it and won't even fit into the USB 3.0 ports on a Lenovo T430.


Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Plus 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVS64GB

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast (empty drive was within 10MBps of advertised speed according to Crystal Disk Mark); slim compared to my last USB 3.0 drive, which didn't allow other devices to be plugged into adjacent USB ports; metal casing

Cons: Connector is protected by a cap, which seem to always get lost eventually; drive seemed to be well made, until my 4lb kitten was somehow able to bend the USB connector to a 45 degree angle from the point it attaches at the base in less than 2 minutes.

Other Thoughts: I have never seen even cheap plastic flash drives damage so easily. I will go back to only purchasing capless drives, where the connector retracts into the base. Luckily it still works so I can get my data off, but I don't trust it, so it will be going in the trash after owning for just a week.

It's a great drive, just make sure to always replace the cap immediately after use.

Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD2500HHTZ 250GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and cheap. This is my first experience with raptors. I saw it on sale for $59 and couldn't pass it up. The performance exceeded my expectations.

Cons: Loud compared to everything else in my relatively quiet build. Wish I would have gotten two to RAID, but will definitely add a second in the future.

Other Thoughts: Atto sequential benchmark: 183 MBps write, 192MBps read.

My plan for this drive is to install a few games I play and run my virtual machines from it. I can't afford several hundred gigs of SSD storage for this purpose, but want better performance than I get from the 7200rpm drives where I store music and video.
