This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Dual 32GB USB OTG Flash Drive Model SDDD-032G-A46
Pros: This drive offers a small and efficient design with pull-back access covers on both sides that expose either the USB or microUSB side. The area that doesn’t slide back has a very light texture to it. 32 gigabytes of space is enough for a decent collection of HD movie rips, music galore, or whatever might be your pleasure. USB2 Speeds.
Cons: This drive did not fit either of my phones while they were in their bulky otterbox cases, nor did it fit without causing a small tear in the waterproof rubber port cover of my GS4A. Removal of the case to attach the USB drive is not very feasible. If you have anything other than a very slim slip cover for your phone, or no case at all, you’ll probably need to take the case off to use the drive. This is my biggest caveat about this device and why one star was removed. it needs to include a short extension cable or have a longer microUSB connector. USB2 speeds, although that is what most droids are using these days.
Other Thoughts: This drive worked with my Samsung Galaxy 4 Active, but did not work with my older Motorola Atrix 2. The Samsung is listed as supported, whereas the Motorola was not. No surprise or disappointment there.
The drive was accessible under the phone settings. In the settings I could do the usual android stuff like see the available/used space, mount/unmount, or format the OTG memory.
This drive is a neat way of carrying those large files you can’t afford to waste space storing on your phone. I see this as being an extremely useful way to transport extra data with you for your phone and is a must if your phone doesn’t have expandable memory (e.g. SD card).

This review is from: VisionTek 900331 Radeon HD 5550 1GB PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
Pros: Mining BTC on my home based server. This is a low cost option for ~50MHash/sec.
Cons: Like anything BTC, you'll always end up wanting more! But at 10% of the higher end cards, this was worth it for getting into the BTC mining.
Other Thoughts: It's only at a linux command prompt, I use the video card soley for BTC mining! I'm pleased with the amount of $ I've invested.READ FULL REVIEW
