Kingston DataTraveler SE9 G2 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Metal casing) Model DTSE9G2/64GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sleek design, good data rates

Cons: Failed after only three months: Windows stopped recognizing it; could be heat related.

Other Thoughts: I have a small IT business and have used countless flash drives and SD cards over the years and this is the very first one that has failed. I bought it for it's sleek metal case and, of course, it's relatively high capacity. It was never abused or used in a harsh environment. I'm sure that Kingston will replace it but it will be interesting to see if the new one lasts longer. I expect at least five years from a flash drive.

Ubiquiti NanoStation LocoM2 , N150 2.4 GHz 2x2 MIMO Nano Station

5 out of 5 eggs Easy installation, LONG range! 01/15/2015

This review is from: Ubiquiti NanoStation LocoM2 , N150 2.4 GHz 2x2 MIMO Nano Station

Pros: Super long range: I tested a pair of these boxes at 1000 ft (line of site through two rows of trees) and they worked great. They also worked from inside two buildings at 500 ft.

The bar graph LEDs are a plus since they indicate a connected bridge. They are weatherproof and easy to mount. They are cheap and the setup page is easy to navigate.

Cons: They should come with an adjustable wall mounting bracket since few people will actually mount them to a pole. I had to use a flagpole holder and a short piece of 1" PVC pipe.

Other Thoughts: I have a small IT business and these units fill a niche that I have been trying to fill for a few years.

Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD1 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast and small, system performance is noticeably higher than a mechanical drive.

Cons: I used TrueImage to copy the hard drive on my personal desktop to this drive. I've done this hundreds of times (I have my own IT business). My computer (Windows 7 x64, 16GB RAM) is very solid; it almost never crashes. The SSD drive was noticeably faster than my mechanical drive. But within a few hours I experienced weird behavior: within three days my computer blue-screened twice. Explorer began crashing regularly. One of my VMWare machines crashed. The last straw was today when I woke up to a black screen; had to power cycle the computer to get it running. The only difference was this drive. Keep in mind that I have done the same thing with mechanical drives on the same machine without these problems.

Other Thoughts: I'm very disappointed; I had hoped that I could get higher system performance and better reliability for me and my customers by switching to an SSD.

But this experience has shown that this particular SSD is not ready for prime time. An SSD should behave exactly the same as a mechanical drive. I'm happy with NewEgg for allowing me to return the drive for store credit.
