This review is from: Intel NUC Skull Canyon NUC6i7KYK kit with 6th gen. Intel Core i7 processor, M.2 SSD Compatible, Dual DDR4 Memory Max 32GB with Intel Iris Pro graphics, Thunderbolt 3, No OS, Windows 10 Compatible
Pros: The obvious pros are form factor and performance, this thing is smaller than my router and performs better than my old ATX system
Cons: Random reboots on a daily basis, a few times a day with no particular task causing it. Not a typical BSOD where you actually get a blue screen, just shuts down and reboots itself with event log error 'Kernel-Power'. Seems this is a common issue on the Intel forums. Not specific to Windows either as I have it happen regularly on two OSes (dual booting from two separate drives, one nvme based, the other sata).
Other Thoughts: It's an amazing little machine but I'm kind of wishing I had just built a mini-itx system at this point, I'm on my second one now after the first one had the screw hole pegs on the bottom of the machine broken off. A lot of money for a lot of problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mediasonic ProRaid HUR5-SU3 2 Bay 3.5" SATA Hard Drive Enclosure
Pros: No connection issues others speak of (after updating to latest firmware)
Solid transfer speeds ~140mb/s
Cons: The box feels pretty cheap being made entirely of plastic. The top half that lifts off to insert the drives sort of shifts around when you move it or hold it even when it's attached. The back right edge is all chewed up, looks like a cat gnawed on it. Just overall poor quality for the price, at least in terms of physical design.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 G2 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive DTSE9G2/64GBCR
Cons: The tip of the metal enclosure is so thin it's already dented inward after a few weeks
Slow write speed
Other Thoughts: I really liked it when I first received it and could forgive the slow write speed, it's intended as a backup to read from more than anything, but the metal casing (specifically at the tip where you insert it) is too thin to hold up over time. Needs a cap or thicker material.READ FULL REVIEW
