Pros: I just received this drive today. While my review cannot speak for the longevity of this product, the performance merits merits a review.
I plugged this drive into the USB 3.0 port of my Asus Formula V and ran the USBFlashSpeed benchmarking tool. Very impressive to say the least. Two benchmarks were completed and both yielded nearly identical results. Read speeds of 194MB/s and 195MB/s and write speeds of 112MB/s and 110MB/s. Those marks put this flash drive as the second fastest read speeds and fourth fastest write speeds recorded on the website. Excellent performance!!
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: The lanyard provided with this flash drive is a wrist lanyard. Total length of the lanyard is less than six inches. If you were hoping for a neck lanyard, you'll be disappointed and need to find one elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Pros: I purchased this card back in June 2011, and it had been working fine until just recently. The sound quality and output power were significantly better than the onboard audio from my MSI P67-GD65 (until the wheels fell off, that is).
Cons: Without making any configuration changes inside my case or even opening my case for that matter, this card now seems to have a grounding problem. The microphone/line-in creates a very obnoxious whirring noise. It sounds like there's a helicopter in my living room. I have checked for any loose wires making contact with the card, any loose cables elsewhere in my case, and checked the power input to the card.
I now have the card uninstalled and just sitting on my desk while I decide what to do with it. Onboard is the only real option right now. I am still under warranty, I believe, but I haven't been a big fan of Asus tech support in the past. Their products are usually amazing, but the tech support has lacked somewhat. We'll see.
Other Thoughts: My issue with this card could be an anomaly, and it certainly won't stop me from desiring to purchase Asus products in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Been using this board for over six months now without a hitch. It has every feature I could possibly ask for and then some. The OC button is pretty slick (set my 2500k at 4.1GHz), but I prefer to OC manually (running @ 4.7k without changing any voltages or the FSB).
Cons: I'm not a fan of the MSI Update software. It seems that it doesn't properly identify the what's already installed and it doesn't try to install the most current software when identifying out-of-date installations.READ FULL REVIEW
