Pros: Tiny. Setup is pretty straight forward -- simple if you're familiar with Win 8X. Silent. Excellent HTPC. Plays BD disks and 1920x1080 MP4s across LAN without hiccups using PowerDVD.
Cons: It does get a little warm, but that's to be expected. Have not had any problems, even after 5+ hours of continuous HD playback. Length of cable on AC converter is a bit short...
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE)
Pros: Nice small format and no cap to lose.
Cons: Poor read/write speed. When testing the actual sustained data throughput using 5-10 GB MP4 and M2TS files, this device averages 35 MBps write and 42 MBps read speeds (NTFS format). This places this device into the category of being only slightly faster than a good USB 2 flash drive.
Other Thoughts: Using this test method, I get near stated throughput from my Lexar and Corsair fast USB 3 flash drives, but their price is higher as well. This drive is inexpensive and performs like it. If PNY had rated the speed more accurately to it's actual sustain data throughput, it could deserve a 5-star review. As it stands, it's at best a 3-star.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD Elements 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive WDBAAU0010HBK
Pros: USB 3 and 1 TB of storage capacity.
Cons: Drops USB 3 connections during long writes. Cheap appearance.
Other Thoughts: Works adequately if used for simple file transfers but is unusable for system backups or long duration file transfers. However, my two WD 2 TB Elements drives work flawlessly and have much better appearance. Buy one of those instead.READ FULL REVIEW
